Neither did fiji now you see, also the poll didnt age well I think they even ignore the results coming from that poll, who cares if you have a feature with more votes , if people whines about something they get pressured to release a an effortless API port instead releasing at once for all cards, where is the advantage of buying Navi now?

I think you give OC forums too much credit...

In fact, you should consider it an excellent present or exceptionnal effort from the company to bring you new functionnality without you buying anything else from them.

Heck, I'm currenctly considering buying a new card because I went from 2560x1080 to 3440x1440, and having RIS clearly would mean delaying my order a lot; so from their perspective, I clearly understand why they do not, and they are right to, since it would reduce their business and their money to invest in newer technology.
While Hawaii/Grenada has been a long living example, its kind of missing the point of the complaint. They added RIS to Polaris but not Vega. We are talking mid-low end vs flagship. While it is nice of them to add older gpu's. They are choosing a segment over another based on whatever metric they chose. The issue becomes what can you expect from AMD when you purchase flagship. Given the fact they pick and choose what to implement based on prodding from the customer does not look good for supporting flagship.

I'm thankful for the community that gets things working when companies are being cheap. They kept it a Navi exclusive feature for sales. I didn't care if they added a toggle because I've been using reshade. You can too

I would call it cheap and underhanded especially since it may have taken more work to deny RIS to some gpus rather than leave it as a togglable software option for all. But outrageous is a little strong. I'm still happier with a Fury than a 780ti even if the 780ti still had full software support. The Fury Nitro is cooler and quieter than the DC2 780ti as well.
The removal of sli support from the midrange bothers me more tbh, and the disappearance of crossfire as long as I'm on that subject. That's like the opposite of what was supposed to happen with Navi. A pair of reasonably powered 5700s would be a great combo for cfx. Over pcie4 with infinity fabric protocol it would be at least as good as before.

Nvidia's resources dwarf the AMD graphics division. Probably just a matter of dedicating the manpower to more important areas.
