By all means, buy my GTX 1080 if you love it so much:
Yes, it did looks stunning, same to the gtx 1080, because u have been an amd fanboy so much, u didnt even realize the gtx 1080 can do the same thing.
in your dreams, idiot. Also its worth much more,than GTX 1080
is weird, seems better to buy a radeon pro duo instead a VEGA, really weird
The GTX 1080 only gets about what, 22mh/s mining? Vega 64 gets 34mh/s. And No Man's Sky looks totally stunning in 4k.
@michaelmctigue:disqus Prove HIM wrong now WHILE BEING MORE EXPENSIVE. HAH. I can laugh now.
If it was cheaper it would be much better than nvidia
MY $850 1080ti is looking better by the week!
AMD + Vulkan = Massive win over Windoze and Nvidia. Linux Open-Source Master PC Race!
this is why theory is always not a fact. it is theoretically. but a fact that remain is its inferior to the gtx 1080 in gaming. yea you will love vega 64 bit for rendering\mining, but u wont like it for gaming.
you're correct. you want this card if u want to mining ethereums. This card is far superior to the gtx 1080 ti in mining, but if you want to gaming, forget this.
how am i an nvidia fanboy when your shitty amd has been failing, a failure is a failure. you have to accept it. You support amd for being cheap? Now its far more expensive than 1080ti. and inferior in gaming performance.
sir, if you tell us amd for rendering i can exactly accept it, but if you want for gaming, i honestly tell you to back down. tests have been made and shown thats inferior for gaming, if you want to mine for ethereum thats different.
I would love to see amd actually compete on a market share bases if anything to purely drive down prices nvidia is reaping cash with this titan bs and its going to start again soon vega took too long, being slightly the fastest for just a few months will win them nothing in the long run unfortunately
Look at this guy, Ahmad Ai-Fanboi!
Blame the miners. Not AMD
Stop being a fanboi for NVidia.
note that with even with a lower effective memory clock, vega 64 about matches the bandwidth of 1080 ti. It can theoretically do more than that as well when the HBCC is used.
They probably would be cheap but there's a super high demand. Price is probably dictated by market demand, not manufacturer. The soaring price of the Bitcoin could be driving heaps of people to buy AMD cards for Bitcoin mining (AMD cards are way better at mining apparently). That's my 2 cents, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though, I find this interesting so getting some other opinions would be great!
Where are the gaming benchmarks of these cards? Please include them too. Thanks
vega 64 air cooled did beat the gtx 1080 7 out of 10 top games FPS. And the watercooled Vega 64 beat the gtx 10 out of 10. so Ahmad Aizat doesn't know what he's talking about. Avoid fanboy's my friend!
Really? Find any cheap RX580s recently?
Not if you can't buy one for 6 months. 1080ti arriving tomorrow.
it is 4-6% inferior to gtx 1080, and about 23% inferior to gtx 1080ti. it just came out and someone has already did the test, WHILE BEING MORE EXPENSIVE THAN BOTH.
not a typo. rx vega got smashed. it is inferior to gtx 1080ti while being more expensive. 23% inferior performance is too much tbh.
