And the majority of 480 reviews were done months ago. The sites doing them now dont have anywhere the level of useful information that the launch reviews did.

And the launch reviews showed a negative impression. Especially when the 1060 reviews came out, and everybody said the 1060 was faster. Heck, people on this forum still say the 1060 is faster, despite the new information.

Amd FineWine is great and all, but the first impressions from their early drivers are still there, negatively impacting them.

Hopefully now that their drivers are good, they will have high quality performance out of the gate with vega for once.
