Im drinking so take it for what it is.
Vega will be at best a 1080 competitor. And if priced right rock on a good value 1080.
AMD as listed in the ADORED youtube videos are aiming at the most top end next year 2018. So all is not lost it is stepping stones.
I jumped on RX480 so I am good for a few years. If your on old stuff and a 1070 or 1080 is in your sights then maybe vega is for you.
Seems there are no miracle GPU competition other that nvidia gutting its top end cards and repricing as it did.
Dont have a short memory and forget pricing before 1080Ti. Dont be a goldfish.
