Not good enough, RDNA2 will beat it.

Considering you made predictions that were just smashed today, I'd hold off on anything outlandish for a while. :)

What you mean, I nailed everything on Ampere with precise precision.



6x master league achiever in starcraft2

Beaten Sigrun on God of war mode

Beaten DOOM ultra-nightmare with NO endless ammo-rune, 2x super shotgun and no decoys on ps4 pro.

1-0 against Grubby in Wc3 frozen throne ladder!!

I may have missed it, but did they talk about power consumption? Were the rumors true?

Here's the official numbers for Founders Edition cards:

3090 - 3080 - 3070

Nice.

So the 12-pin connector was not for this series then.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Yep, another thing the leakers were wrong about.

Edit: Nvm They will provide an adapter

Let the man dream. When RDNA 2 comes out and if it turns out to be yawn worthy, he will say wait for RDNA 3.

3080, I'm on auto notify. Better not let me know when I'm asleep. Funny that my radeon VII has actually paid for this upgrade, sold it a couple of weeks ago for £670, 3080 is £649.

Navi will be good, no way we would be having these competitive prices from Nvidia.

I wish it was so, but to be honest I don't see it happening. AMD themselves said RDNA 2 is a 1.5x performance per watt improvement over RDNA 1, while Nvidia is claiming a 1.9x performance per watt improvement over Turing, and Turing was already ahead of RDNA in performance per watt, so at the very least Nvidia will win on performance per watt it seems. 3080 already has a massive TDP of 320 watts, if AMD is indeed behind in performance per watt, I just can't see them beating the 3080 on performance, they'd end up at around 400 watt TDP just to do it probably. I suspect the rumor that the top of the line RDNA 2 card offers 30% better performance than 2080 ti is true, which would put it between the 3070 and 3080 in terms of performance. 

Where AMD can shine those is price/performance ratio. If they can offer better than 3070 performance at a lower price, say $450, they will be in a good position for sure. AMD should also aim to get their mid-range RDNA 2 cards out this year, since it seems like mid-range Ampere might not come until next year.

It will be good, the problem is, I doubt it will be great! I agree that it's thanks to AMD's potential competitiveness that allows Nvidia to not charge the price of your first born child. The problem is, AMD needs to have multi-generational leap at this rate to go against Nvidia's best. Otherwise Nvidia will keep on coming out with these cards and lowering the price to compete against whatever AMD comes out with. Not to mention AMD doesn't even have an answer to DLSS yet.
