    Some nice results, a real shame no board partner cards are coming because the PCB of the RAD7 can certainly be shrunk down to a mini size to fit in a ITX system much like what happens with NVIDIA's cards.

    Hehe, its even a little more efficient then my 1080TI Mini card, oh how I want a Rad7 MINI card now... if only AIB existed for this launch... sad

      I was expecting to read this and be like, "meh" and ended up "Oh crap... now I want one".

        I really hope they could still optimize the drivers. Would be fair to compare this with 2080 ti & nouveau. After all nvidia drivers are proprietary blobs.

          Sometimes optimisations won't help if a game heavily favours nvidia hardware over AMD,
          i.e. F1-2017 game runs a bit slow for AMD under Linux, oddly so.

            Not really surprising. The hardware is really powerful. Nvidia uses some algorithmic tricks to boost perf. The cooling can be improved though. They say they managed to improve tjunc by 10°C with better paste and washers to tighten the grip. In addition, under voltage operation used 50W less power.

              I certainly wasn't expecting it to compete with the 1080ti/2080. It's been a long time since AMD were this competitive in pure performance and I imagine it will only improve with further driver tweaks.

                Remind that the test is done with open source driver which is impressive.

                  While I've actually done this myself on a card that was clearly defective and had literally zero mounting pressure, as an engineer I still have to point out that doing this on a correctly designed card can potentially have destructive consequences. Gaining a couple of °C in return for a cracked GPU or PCB is not worth it.

                    NVIDIA:

                    DLSS fraud, bad visuals and low performance gain with half to one year training:

                    DXR fraud, PetaFlops are needed for Full Effect so only for some reflections with a lot of noise and performance hit wile not always present:
                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaUP4LucmZM

                    HW fraud, extra non shader units are outdated today just see "Primitive Shaders" and:

                    https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2016/0...aster-for.html

                    D3D11 fraud, GameWorks call's low overhead extra Nvapi extensions, AMD and DXVK can pick up some of them.

                    SALES fraud, Pascal had 2xFP16 for servers but not for gamers.

                    Make your selves a favor and do not buy.

                      Now all hopes will be in Navi - just as they were in Polaris or Vega. They really have to step up their game if they want to make great GPUs.
                      Most of what I've read points to Navi being lower-end GPUs, to replace Polaris (who still in most cases has a better perf/price ratio to Nvidia's competition almost 3 years after release). But maybe that's just confirmation bias...
