So Honest opinion time do you REALLY think Ryzen will be enough? By enough I mean do you think AMD can finally get back to Profitability or do you think they are too far down the hole to really gain relevancy towards consumers again?
I was a Die Hard AMD fanboy for years and years. I still have AMD GPUs because atleast the GPU dept for AMD has been competitive and Ive hated Nvidia for so long now that i just cant bring myself to jump ship... but damn AMD is taking their sweet time getting this shit out. Had Ryzen and Vega launched 6 - 12 months ago id say they have a chance but at this point my Gut tells me Intel is too well entrenched. I hope im wrong
Intel won't be releasing new hardware for a good 3-4 months, so AMD can take advantage of that.
Hoping for the best for AMD's sake anyway, we need to keep them around.
I still have one AMD system left... But my next Motherboard+CPU will be an Intel again in my main system. - I need the extra PCI-E lanes and Memory channels.
Might go for a Ryzen Hex to upgrade my AMD and Core 2 Quad rigs though.
It's too bad shader model 6 isn't out yet despite being near the end of this year. I might have to actually take a jump at green team if AMD keeps taking a beating cause I don't see much hope on the horizon ...
AMD needs to pull their finger out.
Hopefully Vega isn't garbage.
Vega should be able to beat the Geforce 1080, especially at high resolutions where HBM can let the chip breathe.
As long as it's "good enough" in those benchies. (Which one must assume it will be.)
It's Direct X 12 performance that will be more important to me going forwards, I am trying to move away from yearly upgrades and taking a longer approach, all future games should be Direct X 12 and Vulkan powered.
Getting rid of my Eyefinity set-up was the first step with that.
The real interesting part is what happens with Volta and Navi.
It is the second generation 16/14nm GPU's which should see die sizes explode.

That's basically what would happen if you tried to replicate the Canadian health care system in the US. I'm not sure I undertand your reasoning, wouldnt Canada's health system...
