    vega has large enterprise customer (stadia), i wonder whether they use tweaked driver/firmware/hardware

        is vega a step towards navi, or is it suffering fate of cayman(one of a kind), which also was relatively low-volume?

          you mean novideo is no longer main source of bsods? wow such a great vendor.
          i take it back, quick search shows https://forums.tomshardware.com/thre...bsods.3344146/
          Same reason KDE users have historically seen GNOME as a crashy mess and vice-versa. Different demographics exercise different code paths.

            All the new HW in Vega was carried forward to Navi other than the graphics core itself. The main change for Navi was the GFX10/RDNA graphics core.

            Just to confuse things re: volumes I should mention that Cayman graphics were used in Trinity and Richland, while Vega graphics are used in Raven Ridge, Picasso and Renoir.

            If you follow market share numbers I believe that a fair amount of the recent market share growth was from APUs, and hence from Vega graphics:

              But at what cost? You can get like a 30 or 60 gb ssd for a few dollars at this point....

                What about VAT and import fees? And SSD reliability?

                I personally hate TLC (or higher) drives (so-called "cheap" SSD's) due to greatly lowered reliability and durability.

                  Asus Arez top RX580 8GB works with 4K gaming very well. Many graphics effects slows down performance so you disable them anyway.

                    Nvme drives are super fast compared to mechanical drives and cheap too. I did pay 68.10 Euros (including 24% VAT) for an INTEL 660P SERIES - 512GB - M.2 NVMe SSD. The warranty is 5 years.

                      Did you read the rest of my post?
                      I do not want a TLC, QLC or higher-density SSD.
                      These tend to have a lower lifetime.

                      Furthermore, warranty is often heavily nerfed in my country. As a few examples:
                      - A hard drive I bought last year only had 1 year warranty.
                      - A Corsair keyboard I was about to buy only had 6 months warranty (!).
