Hasn't AMD been saying for quite a long time that they were going to bring VR performance to the mainstream with Polaris? That would hint that this was meant to be a middle stack part, how is that spin? I think the people being critical of your piece think that the timing is rather poor, considering you posted right as the Macau event that you guys weren't invited to is going on. I feel like the piece would have more credibility if it were posted even a week or two ago.
Would you expect AMD to truthfully say "We wanted this to be the king of all cards, but when we realized it couldn't compete - we needed to market it as a 'mid-range' card; as that's the only place it could possibly compete"? Or, would you expect them to then only say "It was always intended as a 'mid-range' card"?
