    I got ar-say over Nvidia EOL-ing the standard RTX range and that was because there was no sensible reason for them to do that except because they superceded themselves and needed more aggressive price points.

    The R7 wasn't ever meant to exist, it what brought to life simply to have something because Navi was delayed and was a low volume earner.

    It's a shame it was so expensive because it is a fantastic compute card.

    I always assumed the chip was intended for AI work and the tpu in the 2080 killed the market for it with a better product. At that point they could either chuck them in the bin, or sell the silicon to gamers.

    Ok so rumour has it the Radeon VII has been declared end of life well that no surprise when you take in count on how much it cost vs. Radeon RX 5700 XT which almost just as fast at $270 less even the 50th Anniversary Edition GPU is bargain.

    So it is time for 58xx series?

    Also, did you saw that post on Reddit about unrestricted 57xx cards easily going above 2Ghz!

    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    I presume a 5600 card as well, perhaps once the stocks of Vega56 and Polaris cards have dropped a bit.

    If true, it seems like they just needed to get rid of HBM2 stock. It sucks that it didn't seem to pay off them. Hopefully the higher end Navi rumours are true.

    Where's the group photo from? That's 3 kW of GPU power in a single photo (and 160 GB of VRAM)

    I'm sure it is just a question of timing... AMD are promising that Navi will offer RayTracing, so more GPUs will fill out the range eventually.
