    I feel kind of disappointing by this release TBH - I thought at least Vega would convincingly beat a GTX1080,but unless AMD is really sandbagging on performance,it really seems more like a GTX1080 challenger,whilst being over a year later and consuming more power.

    Lets not forget Asus's legendary lack of customer support bundled with "It's your fault" attitude.

    Do you remember the launch of the 10 seires, nvida said they could have sent a man to mars on the same amount of money they spent devoloping.
    To me it's amazing they are so close, seems like throwing cash at a project doesn't work that well.
    I'm not a millionaire, so budget is my main concern for power per buck, right now amd is beating intel hands down on this front and to be honest as much as I hated Radeon cards in the past for poor drivers and heat, this wouldnt be out of the question if I was upgrading soon.

    Its more that something really does not add up with the performance - apparently AMD used almost the entire extra transistor budget from Fiji to Vega,to make sure it clocked higher,except that Fuji with later BIOSes was more power limited but could hit 1200MHZ overclocked and upto 600MHZ RAM.

    It could be drivers,or it could be the case HBM2 didn't quite deliver on the performance AMD expected.

    I sent my Strix 980Ti back to Asus and they had it fixed to returned within 10 days. One of the fans went bad over time and the card overheated and would throttle. They replaced to whole cooler. I just sold the card for $360.

    Glad to hear the US side of Asus is better for you, you even have support on some forums, try getting help in the UK. To be fair the official support forums deny non US members help.
