This is why I hate these benchmarks and super synthetic things
Unless you're a super power user and are running a specialized system, then this news will never ever ever affect you. Never in the history of gaming has a gamer sitting at their desk playing CS GO or Fortnite or Overwatch been killed in game because their midrange AMD graphics card lagged. Never has a game had major unpatchable issues with lag because someone used a RX 570 rather than a GTX 1060.
I mean, unless it was defective or something or you were using the cheapest of the cheap.
And what sucks is that new builders who don't yet know as much about PCs might hear this marketing stuff and think it's legit and end up spending $150 or $200 more than they need.
I'm certainly no fanboy of AMD but I used a 7870 before I got my RX 480 and last week I upgraded to a Vega 56. I buy cards that are usually a year or 2 old to save money. I've never ever had a problem with a game in real world performance. And that's what we should focus on, real world performance.

I'm really funny but I don't know when to stop.
