Salty yes, truth also yes. Nvidea is light years ahead of AMD at this stage.
I think most people didn't actually watch that presentation or don't fully understand the Radeon VII.
The Radeon VII isn't just a Vega in 7nm, as it improves far more than just the clock speed. The clock speed increases by 10-15% while framerates increase almost throughout by 20-35%, and that's despite lacking 4CU. That brings the card to about RTX 2080 level in terms of FPS.
However, this Radeon is more of a Prosumer card like NVidias Titan line originally was. The latest Titan however has those capabilities locked in the Driver to force those interested in this to shell out for a Quadro or Tesla GPU. For anybody who uses OCL or FP64 and can't afford any of these professional GPUs this card is a godsend.
I can understand that from a pure gamer standpoint the GPU is disappointing, but for those Navi will come later down the line. But for those who use their GPU not just to play, but also for work, this is a very good offering.
