    I am still waiting for the high-end Navi card!
    It makes sense to expect it only if you are going to buy it. In terms of performance, isn't Radeon VII sufficient?

    Now if only AMD supported coreboot.

    False. Look at how Polaris/Vega outperformed NVIDIA in some tasks.

    Doubling the number of cores only doubles the power consumption (assuming equal load across the cores). Doubling the frequency may almost quadruple the consumption. That's why it's cheaper to cram in more cores than higher freq.

    I just am tired that it is 2020 and AMD still does not provide 4:4:4 encoding/decoding support. NVIDIA did it with Maxwell. Intel did it with Ice Lake. So why not AMD?!

    Also see zxy_thf's point below.

    Already obsolete, like lower end Nvidia cards. Just make 8 GB of VRAM a standard, since games require it to max out textures.
    The maxed out textures are for 4k.

    VP9 is another big bummer and imo it's more important for laptops, because YouTube defaults to VP9 and a browser extension has to be installed to use H264...

    The Radeon RX 5600 XT was officially announced. As expected, this Navi card "ultimate 1080p gaming" card has 36 compute units, 1375MHz game clock, 1560MHz boost clock, 6GB GDDR6 video memory.

    At least they announced laptop CPUs that are powerful enough to compete with high-end Intel offerings that make for nice workstations. Now, it's just a matter of waiting for a P series ThinkPad with such a CPU, and hoping Lenovo won't botch it…
