Releasing cards in the same performance bracket as existing cards is fineYeah it is a tried and true recipe for selling cards look at how sales are going for Radeon VII?
By that definition no one can ever release the same performance bracket cards a few years later, you could say the same about Nvidia line up today.
I have no idea on what the pricing will be if it is as suggested then AMD will cater to all of those people that out of principle would not buy Nvidia cards. But is that the market AMD is looking for because history suggests that when the cards are the same price masses will never even look at what AMD is offering.
Even better when AMD has something better there not touching it either .
Releasing cards in the same performance bracket at the same price as 2 years prior? Not really.
