    Suspect that Bethesda spec was a typo (or maybe there's a dual 480 in the offing!), I thought Vega was going to be 5 series?

    Nearly 60GB HD space for textures? That'll entail a few more SSD upgrades for FO4 fans...

    Except that with Bethesda games being gameworks titles it'd be very unusual for them to say a 480 would be fine if they also required a 1080 from the green team.

    edit: ah, they've removed it from the spec now.

    I'm sure those Chips would go down nicely with some Ketchup. -I'll get my coat!
    These chips have alot of bandwidth to play with. Will Nvidia go Hbm2 or GDDDR5X/6 ?

    I suspect the rumours about vega getting the 5XX title were wrong - if it was a dual 480 it ought to be the 485X2, and should have more than 8GB RAM

    The last speculation I saw was that 2017 Nvidia tech would be based on higher clocked variants of the 10 series using faster 5X memory. The 5X memory also might move further down the range.

    Then Volta would be 2018 and bring GDDR6 & HBM2.
