    Ridiculous! If you can wait, its a want, not a need. Then just wait for whatever tickles your fancy.

    Else you'd buy whatever your urgent "need" use-case demands.

    AMD doesn't owe you anything. Lots of companies have product launch delays. Just ask
    Intel how many more years you have to wait for 10nm.

    What bug?

    Who cares about whining gamers who want expensive 7nm GPUs so that they can play their kiddy games? These are for real users who want to deploy the GPUs in data centers running them max out 24x7. That's where the money is!

    That whole post makes no sense, unless I'm missing the point? Why would Microsoft/Sony remotely care about what AMD announce in the compute GPU market when they're making decisions on what to implement in their consoles? Also what memory are they waiting for? Zen2 uses the same socket so must therefore be compatible with DDR4. If the 7nm EPYC parts are out on schedule then it's reasonable to expect them to stick to the yearly release cadence for their desktop parts, so around spring 2019.
    I think @Millenium realised how ridiculous he made himself look. Great quote to keep his post for posterity!

    Taking time to write posts in an understandable manner will prevent incredulous responses.
    Ah... these clueless millenials like @Millenium... chuckle... chuckle... lol

    Vega 10 has a hardware bug whereby when you reboot a VM, the GPU doesn't respond to a soft-PCIe reset, meaning it wont reinitialise and the card wont be available to the VM until full host system reboot. If they're bigging this thing up for virtualisation use, then ostensibly this is a solved problem.

    AMD should care, nVidia is showing them up by constantly taking the graphics crown. One way or another, that detail is going to trickle back to enterprise and nVidia already has a mass appeal advantage there with existing market and mind share, as well as the proliferation of applications that use CUDA. Also, Vega 20 should be quite a bit cheaper to produce than the existing Vega 10 given its much smaller die size, and when the V20 package only needs to carry an interposer big enough for 8GB-12GB of HBM2, and the smaller die. That means they could sell it at the same price or less (if 8GB) to the GTX 1080/Vega 64, and make more money, and gain performance ground. And the consumer market can be somewhere they sell dies that mightn't bin well enough for the data centre, but do fine in a desktop at some tier or another. And it'd buy some good will, mind share, and enthusiasm for the brand. There's no real downside to doing so as long as TSMC has the capacity to pump out more of them than binned inventory allows, and they muster the marketing chops to increase mass appeal.

    It looks like AMD's 7nm plans extend to more than just Vega Instinct GPU (professional cards).

    AMD’s next major milestone is the introduction of our upcoming 7nm product portfolio, including the initial products with our second generation “Zen 2” CPU core and our new “Navi” GPU architecture. We have already taped out multiple 7nm products at TSMC, including our first 7nm GPU planned to launch later this year and our first 7nm server CPU that we plan to launch in 2019.

    The vast majority of gamers at 1080p have absolutely no need to upgrade their graphics card unless going for higher refresh rates. Which is why we are seeing stupidly high refresh monitors. Do you really need a 240hz monitor??

    At the moment you can easily purchase a decent 4k free sync monitor for less than £350 but you can't get a resonably priced graphics card to use it. If AMD could bring out card around the £500-£600 mark, undercutting the new NVIDIA cards significantly they could gain market share and also start to grow the market.


    NVIDIA seems to be saying that 4k is only for the high end market - which means that market will never grow significantly. Add to that the price of G-Sync monitors and the situation for consumers is dire.
