    RX Vega GPU specs uncovered via AMD Linux patch

    And it looks like AMD is working on at least three Vega SKUs.
    Read more.

    Hopefully they will be cheaper that nVidia cards

    Give me 1080 performance for sub £400 from a good AIB partner with decent cooler and I'll bite.

    Re: RX Vega GPU specs uncovered via AMD Linux patch

    so to sum it up, it will be 2x480 performance+, so GTX 1080+, now the price game that will change everything.

    Same. Pricing is going to be key though.

    Re: RX Vega GPU specs uncovered via AMD Linux patch

    Most interesting thing to be will be the comparison back to the Fury X, which has the same 4096 shaders. On pure clockspeed alone it should be ~ 50% faster, but that would only get it into the same ballpark as the plain GTX 1080. So I'll be looking very closely to see how much they've managed to improve the utilisation and IPC...

    Wish they'd hurry up. My 570 (GTX, not RX ) is almost as crippled as I am and I need a new monitor to boot

    I'd be perfectly fine with ballpark 1080, as long as it's under 1080 prices.

    going through the numbers in the hexus 1080ti review, it's not a massive ask. Multiplying all the average 4K frame rates of the fury X by 1.5 to represent a 50% faster clocked fury 2, the average delta is only 9%. That is for the founders edition, admittedly

    (1080ti led a 50% boosted fury X by 17, 9, -11, 12, 17, 10 % with the results in the same order as the games in the hexus review)

    Re: RX Vega GPU specs uncovered via AMD Linux patch

    I can't believe we're still speculating after all this time. Until Vega arrives and reviews appear, I'm not listening to any of the 'fake news' that keeps fanboys on both sides dribbling into their pants.
