    Seriously, that's the naming that they are going with?

    There's bound to end up being confusion for some people as to whether they own an NVIDIA or AMD GPU at this rate.

    Naming will work well for embedded gpus however its awkward for standalone cards...

    $330 so £330 for a 2070? That's going to be slightly quesrionable considering the 2070 can be purchased at £300 already.

    Didn't expect much much for the first Navi iteration especially with the direction change to support raytrace acceleration for consoles but this pricing isn't going to leave much life in the iterations favours really

    Err were can a RTX 2070 be purchased for £300, link? RTX 2060 starts at £330 last time I looked, with the RTX 2070 north of £400.

    Where in Narnia did you pick up a 2070 at £330?

    It was cold. Everything was shrinking. Including prices.

    Re: Report says that AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT will rival Nvidia RTX 2070

    Seems things aren't as good as hoped but still going to be ok, in short it seems they need to clock past efficiency and power draw for navi to work at the higher end.

    So for 7nm it will be bad, but in comparison to 12nm it will be ok.

    I am waiting to see what lands at the £200-£250 price point, may not be top end but should be great value and a good bump up from my RX580.

    RTX 2070 performance without the RTX guff would be kind of interesting, RTX 2080 performance would be even more so but that's probably asking too much, and if that TDP is to be believed it may even manage to not melt your case.

    I'm more interested in what they can announce next in a part, with or without raytracing, that fits in 75W TDP or even less. Going to a smaller process should lead to better low-power designs, not just 'look how much more we can shove on a huge card with 3 fans and 2 plugs.'

    Re: Report says that AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT will rival Nvidia RTX 2070

    It's a bit odd considering the existing vega VII 7nm is equal to a 2080 (non-ti). I'd have expected a slightly cheaper, also roughly-equal-to card with some thought towards a top spot challenger as 7nm matures.
    Equalling a very middling GPU is a bit tame.

    Oh well, time yet.

    You had me for a moment... "Really? wow I'll buy one then! Oh, no. Not really. £389 looks to be the cheapest."

    You can knock a good £10 - £20 off of OCUK prices though for equivalent elsewhere..... even Scan

    Don't read too much into this report. Speculation, based on speculation with an uncertain source.
