    weird that AMD is the only tech company that compares its GPU/CPU to the competition, I have not seen Nvidia do this!

    Until recently, have Nvidia ever needed to?

    Nvidia only compares to itself, and pretends there is no competition. It works well for them, especially since a lot of their customers are trapped in CUDA dependency.

    Yes, AMD has CUDA support and porting tooling, but many businesses just want to have an abusive supplier dependency.

    Interestingly enough this uses higher clocked HBM2 and it seems to be from Hynix instead of Samsung:

    I do wonder with Hynix now coming online whether costs of HBM2 should start to drop??

    Hmmm Hynix HBM2 at 2.4 GHz now available. That would be perfect for a 12nm die shrunk Vega. It always seemed to me that Vega was memory bandwidth constrained.
