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.


If people read those reviews back then they probably also read the part that talks about AMD drivers getting better with time, so I'd expect that they'd search for updated reviews when buying for the Holiday season.

Anyway, seems like Vega is on track:

AMD Vega 10 is the star during RRA GPU certification with its solid performance outscoring its expected rival, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which underwent the same regulatory evaluation. Reports tell that AMD Vega 10 did very well in all aspect.

RRA is South Korea's National Radio Research Agency, a regulatory board that conducts tests and approves products that are produced by Silicon Valley-based companies before they are sold into the electronic market, Segment Next noted.
