Very eager to get my hands on one (at least one) of them. Just like Vega 56/64, the TDP peeks are never reached in Rendering. So for Blender this will be awesome.
Agreed that for gaming, well they had to do something. NAVI simply wasn’t ready, so this is a “stop gap” measure.
One site mentioend that there will be “only 5000” units on sale… and that each untill will loose AMD money, which is understandable. But for rendering… the extra 30%, is a nice boost.
Still eager to see though what RTX and its RTX features will bring for Blender.
Lastly, I wonder how Nvidia CEO will respond when they release a the “rumoured” GTX 1180… (no RTX, means I Hope singnificantly lower price…)
Still back to Vega 2, VII, Radeon VII… ahh these names. Wonder if they will switch to the R5 R7 R9 naming scheme from the past just with roman numerals? Radeon V Radeon VII Radeon IX… good old days i guess hehehe.
Still, saving my cash for 1 (or 2) of these, and hope that someone releases water blocks for them
