I decided to not wait for next gen and get myself AMD RX 580 now, I will pick it up this evening, it will be a great upgrade from my Geforce 960 that I've had for 3.5 years.

Congrats on your decision and have fun with it.

Thanks. I got a great deal for a hardly used Sapphire RX 580 Pulse for 120 euro. I just installed it and will test GTAV lol

Here is my old card on top and the new at bottom:

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

32 would have been nice, but given how things run for me at DSR 4k, I'd rather the nice looking, neatly cable managed 1440p monitor.

I'd say gimme a ring when we get 4k assets displayed at 4k for everything, while running above 60fps. Until then, 4k just isn't worth much of anything in my eyes. 1440p  has been my current sweet spot over the past 2 yrs now.

1440P is the sweet spot.
It's a step up over 1080P... But it's hardware demands isn't as high as 4k.

Just 1440P, 144hz, 27" has been done to death at this point... The cable management is really what sets this monitor apart... But is that really worth the Razer premium?

That and the monitor itself is different in design. No the size of the monitor is the same, but it's stand and outside shape are different. 

 

The cost itself afak wasn't asking for £700-1000, which some crazy monitor makers can ask for. My Acer Predator 165hz one wasn't cheap as chips for one. 



                                       

So, the Radeon 7 GPU! RTX 2080 performance for just about the same price, but some 300 W and that's on 7 nm already on top of all things.

Vega is truly the Bulldozer of GPUs. Maybe Navi will be, I don't know, a Steamroller. Because it's increasingly obvious true evolution will happen only when they move away from GCN at this point, the design simply can't scale above 2000 - 2500 SPs.

Looks good, and for a truly great price.

Again, congratulations on your purchase.

I forgot it was today (I thought we would know about it tomorrow).

The 16GB of HDM2 is a surprise, but that even the reference card comes with 3 fans to cool it down...

I suspected a 2x increase in power efficiency would be too optimistic from 7nm in real-life applications. Bodes ill for the next-generation consoles too.

But RTG always manages to disappoint you, even when you're expecting nothing.



 

 

 

 

 

And the new CPUs could be really good... and tiny!

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13829/amd-ryzen-3rd-generation-zen-2-pcie-4-eight-core

That's an 8-core, 16-threads CPU on the right next to the I/O die. And as they show, there's room for another chip

Consoles will have to go with Navi, otherwise they'll some sort of "exotic" cooling like an AIO unit to keep it under control.

Vega was very unbalanced.
Vega 20 will fix allot of that unbalance up with a big boost to ROPs and Memory bandwidth.

But yeah. Graphics Core Next is done and dusted at this point...

Navi will be a replacement for Polaris, Vega 20 is AMD's new high-end offering.

TBH, I don't have much hope in Navi scoring a home run. There's arguably a higher chance of game developers saving AMD graphics at this point than AMD themselves once they ditch Windows 7 ...
