    Holy shit that is amazing.
    Here's hoping they keep it up with Navi, I'm looking forward to finally upgrade by then.

    AMD is open source so you can go look..

    Exactly. One could compare efficiency from a different perspective. Also I don't have a monitor capable of more than that and I was more curious how it behaves at that resolution.

    I would trade my 770 GTX for something AMD. Problem is right now, I can't get anything that would even be an improvement in performance for under $200...which is what I paid for the card 2 years ago refurbished!

    If a 390x/480/580 becomes available for under $150, I would likely make the switch. I am actually hoping the mining all busts, and the market is flooded with used mining cards, and I can pick one up for under $100.

    Most interseting always to me is that 1080 Ti is so much better than plain 1080, unlike 1070 Ti to plain 1070. So, that Ti-tech seems not so much a thing, if not at the top of the line

    Michael did you ever test that - Ti to non-Ti diff, I mean on 1050, 1070 and 1080... you have all these models isn't it?

    I think these Ti-tricks are nowdays most obvious, bigger the GPU became TI-tricks seems works more and more better

    This is not today or because of Raja, workstation or something, that Ti-tech specials where correctness is not requirement (such as gaming) exist since GeForce 2 AFAIR

    It is kind of saying how normal nVidia cards are "absolute crap in terms of Gaming", just because Ti versions exists... i know some like to call normal nVidia non-Ti as SE to even better describe these normal but crippled editions

    we know the hardware is well, not progressed at all and I think Raja can be easily blamed for not delivering anything in 4 years.
    Drivers are good, impressive and improving at a good pace.
    Actually, Vega is not bad at all - it's pretty decent in terms of "workstation usage". It's just absolute crap in terms of Gaming...but it comes very apparent that Gaming wasn't Rajas intention. Unfortunately, that could mean Intel will have a competing GPU in terms of workstation usage...

    Still. I find it impressive, Vega beats a 1080 Ti at anything, or even come close to it.

    Remember when J. Bridgman said many times that AMD folks expect the FOSS driver
    to eventually deliver a performance of about 70 % of a closed-source driver (with all the magic)?
