    Re: AMD conference call confirms Ryzen and Vega are on track

    I'm rooting for the Red team - demo's and hype aside I can't wait to see the real world reviews of Ryzen and Vega. Time for a new red team build? Time will tell!

    Re: AMD conference call confirms Ryzen and Vega are on track

    Vega is Q2 isn't on time according to this chart, that would put it ~6 months behind the original launch schedule they told us, or to put it another way ~ 2 years since their last high end product, and a over a year since Nvidia's high end product. I'm looking forward too it, but my original estimate based on that chart was Dec '16 / Jan '17, then that was revised to end of March '17, now it's looking like end of June '17...is it just me?

    Re: AMD conference call confirms Ryzen and Vega are on track

    So is this result good news or bad news for AMD? It seems like they are on recovery path, but still not there.

    Any expert ?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Simple as this: if Zen architecture and Vega prove to be successes and people are happy paying the amounts they are priced at? AMD is back. Else? Tough times ahead. But I'm no expert.

    No, AMD have been very slow, and their release schedules have clearly slipped.

    Vega's delays wouldn't have been so bad if Polaris was a better performer. If it got close to the 1070 then I think people would be much happier buying AMD gear - but when it only just matches the 1060? That is a lot of market segment essentially vacated for a year.

    Worse, for a strategy centred around volume sales the latest Steam hardware survey puts the combined share of Polaris (~0.8%) at less than the individual share of the 1060 (2.01%), 1070 (1.82%) or 1080 (0.95%).

    Plus I bet there are quite a few people with G-Sync monitors now who won't want to swap to the red side even if the performance is there.

    Really? I don't personally know anyone with a G-sync monitor, and that includes someone with an SLI 1080 setup and one whose 970 drives a rather nice 1440p monitor so it isn't just that my friends and associates are paupers

    I suspect there's a whole lot more with Free-sync monitors though. They're a lot cheaper. My monitor is free-sync, but I got fed up waiting for Vega and ordered a GTX 1070 from Amazon at the weekend.

    Re: AMD conference call confirms Ryzen and Vega are on track

    I do hope AMD pull it out of the bag and provide great performance for a great price, I can see myself with a Ryzen chip in 18 months or so to replace the FX8350 for sure and we need competition to stop intel and nvidia ripping everybody off! That being said I have already caved and recently invested in a GTX1070 so I seriously doubt I will be getting a VEGA GPU regardless of whether it performs better or not. I am not buying into the 4k hype (for a while) and I would like to think my current card will be giving me acceptable performance at 1080p for quite a few years yet, especially as I don't tend to upgrade until I find myself struggling at medium settings for games (that could give me what? 4 years on this card maybe?).

    Suspect that's right. I've just done a run through of Witcher 3 on my 4 year old GTX680 in 1440p, low settings but it looked great and played well. Drop to 1080 and I'm sure medium settings would have been achievable.

    Logic says that there are far more Freesync monitors out there than G-Sync, but that doesn't tell the whole story. When you "buy" Freesync it's effectively "free", you don't buy into AMD, you just get it for nothing. Conversely those that buy into G-Sync literally buy into it, often at £150 - £250. So G-Sync monitor owners are more likely to want to stay Nvidia. Having said that, the people with top-end gear probably change it regularly too and reevaluate every time, so this is a tech race that could change very fast and when there's finally some AMD firepower G-Sync will be a hard sell.

    Yeah AMD are late, they know it, the fanboys know it and it's a big shame. However they are experts at playing the game and never gave anything concrete until recently. They showed ambiguous graphs, they gave high level impressions, they hinted, then finally they say "H1 2017". So even though we finally get a "date" it's still one that consists of a 6 month range and noone's in any doubt it won't be until at least May !!

    Then "launch" will potentially be something that involves a big party and no actual cards on shelves. The aim of all this is just to stop as many people as possible from buying that 1070 with the idea that they will be able to save you a few £ later in the year. Just as Nvidia launch the 11 series and it all starts all over again.
