    Re: RX Vega to launch within next two months says AMD

    Within two months? Really, it should have launched two months ago. They really are poor at getting stuff to market, especially when there's a nice lull (as Geforce 10** has been out for a good while, now would be a fine time to launch). The longer they leave it, the more chance Nvidia has to develop the successor to Pascal and completely overshadow it. Get. A. Move. On.

    It will have to do the impossible and improve upon the hype for AMD to make a breakthrough, being a step behind NVidia like this does nothing for sales when you're only matching them on performance.

    Re: RX Vega to launch within next two months says AMD

    I find it really odd that they had decided to do a 400 series refresh so close to the Vega release, I wonder how many people out there have not been following the news and have gone out and bought 500 series GPU's only to be in for a bit of a nasty taste in their mouth in the next two months.

    I can't imagine anyone who was actually interested in gaming tech and might consider a Vega card will have rushed out to buy a £250 RX 580. Vega is meant to be a high end card, and will probably cost £400+. If you're in the market for RX 580 you're probably not in the market for Vega...

    Re: RX Vega to launch within next two months says AMD

    You are right Scaryjim, but I am talking about people who might not know what is planned in the near future, are in the market for Vega but just don't realise it, IE they may well think the 500 series is the latest and greatest and have just picked up a bargain, when had they known vega was round the corner would have happily waited and spent more.

    I don't think anyone that spends £250 on a graphics card is a casual buyer. I'm pretty sure someone spending £250 knows what's on offer.

    Re: RX Vega to launch within next two months says AMD

    Going to be almost as good as Nvidia's Series 10...

    But it will be cheaper... But there's the Driver issues... But it's cheaper...

    Oh... Nvidia Series 11 launched...

    Back to drawing board.

    Re: RX Vega to launch within next two months says AMD

    The hype is train is always strong with AMD, normally disappoints. They done quite well with Ryzen now it's getting some improvements through. Hopefully we will see the same with Vega, without the two month lead time to benefit from it! I'm rooting for an all AMD system for next rig but will have to wait and see...

    I copy pasted this form another thread I posted in, but this applies here aswell so:
    they shouldn't, you know why?
    because the more people rush them, the more rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishups can happen
    nvidia is where it is because they had all the time in world to create new products
    because they believed AMD would never make a strong comeback.
    people didnt rush them to release 10 series or 9 series graphics cards, where as AMD tried to compete as quick as possible to their own peril in the past.
    I'm not hoping for Vega to be able to beat 1080 lineup, but atleast be on par and cost less.
    maybe that would mean price drops to older cards & that's a gain for us as consumers.
    I'm not in high hopes for vega, but I'm really glad that AMD is moving onwards and found their growth formula.
    to add to that, people like you piss me off.
    if you want unfinished product, dont complain that it's broken.
    you dont eat meat raw now do you. BE. rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishING. PATIENT.
