    How do you avoid being slapped for breaking a release NDA? Report someone else breaking a release NDA!

    tbh I assume this is insufficient detail to really count as breaking an NDA ... although if I was Sapphire I'm not sure I'd be too happy my someone else one-upping my carefully planned tease...

    I really hope they haven't whacked up power usage even more for a slight performance boost - if anything Vega users are showing with some tweaks performance/watt is easy to increase.

    New cards, and on top of that it looks like new drivers will mean all AMD cards need re-benchmarking. Busy time for some!

    I hope so as that Vega 64 power consumption is just silly. A few years ago, yeh sure but not these days.

    EDITED because I forgot to quote so this made no sense.
