    No custom Radeon RX 5700 designs until mid august: report

    If true 7/7 availability will be limited to AMD reference designs wearing various badges.

    So the fact that their special edition couldn't hit validated boost clock at 2Ghz or more tells me that AMD still has a problem running their chips at higher freq and this is where nvidia is killing them (too).
    Also, power is still not really resolved, it may be better than before compared to older Radeons, but still not close to what nvidia offers. Too bad.

    We are going to order some for internal testing but I think that AMD failed on this one. Well, at that price range. Nvidia will surely cut the prices a bit. By September I expect AMD to lower the prices for their GPUs significantly. Good thing is, their in very positive position on CPU side.

    It is fine AMD, no need to rush it, no one is going to buy it at those prices anyway.

    RIP Navi then.

    It will be hot, loud (even if they have restricted the fan speed) and throttle on the blower. The first reviews are what count and without any custom designs to review for months that's going to be the enduring memory of Navi. It's the curse of every AMD launch.

    And then you get to the price...

    Where does it say they validated for 2Ghz?

    That what I am saying.Read better. They didn't. The Boost clock for special edition is 1980Mhz, just 20Mhz shy off 2Ghz. That means they could not (also written "couldn't") validate that speed.

    Because if they could, the marketing would be all over "Special 2Ghz 50yrs edition"

    Yea, no, I don't get the point you're trying to make. Why's 2Ghz important or even relevant to performance?

    You may as well say so the fact that Nvidia's 2080 couldn't hit validated boost clock at 1.8Ghz or more tells me that Nvidia still has a problem running their chips at higher freq and this is where AMD is killing them.

    "Acoustically tuned contour"? Really?

    Guru 3D has confirmed the approx month delay for AiB designs - from some chats it had with AMD at Computex.

    It is not, for performance. But is for the marketing.

    Imagine them saying "Look ya all, we can hit 2Ghz on boost clock!".
    And that would be important, cause people like those round kind of numbers, and that sells better.
    I assume that their marketing wanted that, but they simply couldn't validate it in their quality testings.

    So next question is: Maybe this Radeon will not be good overclocker?

    I really hope it will. We need competition. It seems nvidia isn't planning price cuts after all, just introducing super versions with +100USD on base models.
