[details=Summary]There you go:


Not live anymore. For results watch this video from around: 4:32:00

And here are some screenshots from those results.
I stole those. :stuck_out_tongue: Thanks, @antilogy.


Vega forced bundles gone
#2

not looking so hot


#3

Nope. If that is what RX-Vega has to offer it is not worth the upgrade for me. (Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro)


#4

Guess AMD can only do good on 1 side at a time, since CPU side is doing well GPU is crashing and burning


#5

I haven't watched this but from what I've seen before it is basically slightly faster than a 1080. Which is exactly what they have been showing since the beginning.

Not sure why everyone was expecting miracles tbh


#6

Seems to be pretty much exactly 1080 so prob not faster more of on par at least on dirt rally 1440


#7

As long as its smaller and faster than my 290x lightning its ok (depending on price off course). Rightnow i have to do some crazyass tube bending to make it a dual loop fit.


#8

Well, hype of course.

I would not be disappointed by a card at that performance level if the price is good. I'm just saying it isn't worth the upgrade if you already have a fury.


#9

My main thing is more of the power needed, no improvements on that front.


#10

Umm it probably is depending on cost. If it is 1080 level that is a pretty decent bump up from a Fury X.

However the power consumption is nuts and it won't be cheap. Big die and HBM2...

Seems a turkey to me


#11

I doubt with HBM2 will allow them to drive the cost down.


#12

#13

Exactly my point.

They will be bleeding money selling these things


#14

Well if i'm not going to bleed to much, got a evga 850P2 ready to feed it.


#15

Most people are probably fine on the power side as people tend to way overbuy to hit that 50% at load number


#16

Exactly, my 1700 doesn't need the 850 watt


#17

I dont understand why i am watching still its been like and hr already


#18

If I want to see gaming benchmarks should I even click the video? I am so sick of synthetic benchmarks.


#19

They are on gaming now, only did 2 synth


#20

What is that flashing part of the monitor. It's on the left side of the screen.
