Its looking like the only reason AMD bothered to launch these cards, is to put another feather in their cap "We released the first 7nm consumer GPU" blah blah (Though truth be told, if these where a little cheaper, I'd replace my 1080ti with one, if I could find one in stock, I bet Austalian retailers get f all of them)....what's the hold up with Navi? I'm hoping its just waiting for more stock to be made, before they do a launch, so that there is decent availability.

Either way I was hoping these were defective/cut versions so there would be enough of them for the price to go down. I can imagine 5k selling pretty fast even at $700. Could be wrong, maybe I'm over-estimating how many people are buying higher end GPUs? We'll see but it looks like I'll never get to own one for a good price. Shucks *kicks dirt*
I posted the speculation that these cards actually cost AMD $750 to manufacture due to the 7nm and 16GB of HBM2 in the other thread, so that's why they priced it at $699. I guess they are so desperate to have SOMETHING available in the consumer high end market that they were willing to make the VII a loss-leader, but they couldn't justify losing more than $50 per card (if that speculation is accurate).

I'd say hell with it myself. AMD exists to make money, competitive HEGPUs would be nice but it's not their job to provide them. If AMD stopped making CPU's because they made way more money selling t-shirts, I'd be sad but I'd understand lol.
If his card does cost them over $700 to make they're doing something wrong and they shouldn't be making it without a good reason, especially with navi in their future. I'm sure their losses on these cards is negligible but still...
Any one else curious about X-Fire results?

Tweaktown? They're as reliable as expecting a hungry dog not to eat my steak. They made the same exact predictions when vega was launching how its super limited and wont be on shelves for long. This article is nothing but a desperate clickbait.

They made a lot of strange articles. I would also be suprised if such information is commonly known. It's like they know already everything about the whole R7 product range.

A bit of a halo product to show that they want to/ can compete with nVidia in the high-end.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought Vega can be ran with HBM or GDDR.

Not very surprising if it's true, AMD haven't been the best at keeping up with gpu demand.

I think HBM / GDDR dual compatibility is supposed to be associated with Navi. It's what some people are thinking when AMD wrote "scalability / nextgen memory". Currently all vega cards have been HBM /HMB2 cards and polaris cards have been GDDR.

It is what it is...
