No, you're not taking me literal enough. When I say Blender I really do mean Blender. LTT's numbers showed the 2080TI losing to a Vega64 in specifically Blender, and outright getting embarrassed by one of these. And it plays games. If that appeals to you(it actually does to me) you might wanna start saving just in case AMD decides to do another run of these. But my priority this year is a Ryzen 3000 base-rig. The GPU/display is secondary.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
