If the Navi performance leaks are true, AMD has a bit of a problem with the product stack.
Use case is at stock in games for the following comments:
If RVII performance is less than a 2080 and the top Navi card is better than the 2070, what's the performance delta of the RVII/Navi? Seems like...
Every instance of RTX ray tracing feels a bit off to me. It's like every demo or bit of gameplay I have seen is either over-implemented or not noticable. This didn't feel that way. Very impressive.
Also any implementation is cheating unless it is computing photon path of every ray of light as...
I think you have to look at RTX in general as BETA at the moment. Nvidia needed to get it in the hands of developers and consumers as data collection for optimization purposes prior to a node shrink. Getting the ball rolling on adoption was also important. I think RTX at 7nm is going to be...
I saw it today. Had pretty low expectations really. It was better than expected. The plot moves along well for an origin. Good soundtrack. Definitely a run of the mill marvel movie. To me that's not a bad thing as I like the marvel movies in general.
Vega gonna be a Vega, even at 7nm. My 64 undervolts to 0.98 and tries to push to almost 1600Mhz but can't take the heat due to this shitty blower cooler and holy fucking loud batman... I started looking at custom loop parts this weekend. We shall see.
It would be cool to see the...
Agreed. Additionally, flavor is a matter of function as it relates to an orally consumed, adult choice, luxury product. Making it taste like strawberries is not marketing to kids. Were strawberries suppose to start tasting like shit after we turned 18? If so, I didn't get the memo.
Like the card but the price is high. The 1080ti launched around Feb/Mar of 17 at about $699... Near 2 years later and after generational upgrades from both camps we are still stuck at essentially the same performance for the same price... That sucks.
The "bathtub effect". X = time of ownership, Y = failure rates. If you plot and trend, the line will look like a bathtub. This is very, very common failure trend in regard to electronics and supports your statement about the cards that have been working for a month or more.
FS: MSI Vega 56 Card
Two months old. Like new. Light gaming use only. Decided to grab a Vega 64.

They will fix it. They sure fucked this up though. What's sad is they didn't have to drop this card when they did. They could have waited for RTX software support to be more readily available. They rushed it and it bit that ass.
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.
I built a 2400g, 16 GB DDR4/2400, 1 TB spinner/120 GB nvme ssd StoreMI setup for my in-laws. I am really impressed with it. Runs games at 1080p with mid to high graphics settings at 60hz vsync extremely well. Very hard to beat at $550 build price.
Same deal ($329) on a Powercolor Red Dragon Vega 56 from Newegg with promo code EMCXEEPS2
He got bent over a bit with the R&D budget at AMD. That said, after this push with Intel there will be no more excuses. And the approach at AMD sure seems to have been the right one. Raja and Vega were unfortunate collateral damage.
