    AMD already released performance figures. There is nothing to be surprised about

    My prediction: The cheapest card will be £699, the others between £749-£799 and the Asus one at £1099.

    Love how the RAM specification gets pride of place on that Sapphire box. "Look guys, its 16jigger" :D

    Reviews at 2pm then you can make your mind up. Best not jump in and be disappointed. Asus name is not worth any extra I expect them all to look the same in different box’s

    Gamedebate's results at 4K show 12 titles with similar framerate, 2 titles where 2080 leads and 7 titles where the Vega 2 16GB tops.

    The GTAV result is questionable considering how far AMD gpu's lag behind Nvidias.

    EDIT: Huh! The GTAV result is nothing like that if you check via the link.

    EDIT 2: I'm such a numbnut sometimes, Was looking at 800x600.

    EDIT 3: No I wasn't, Just sell me one already :confused:

    The asus one will come with a free sticker though to put on the front of your case. That's worth the extra right?

    Look like the rtx 1080 just edges it in game debate review, so not bad for VII how well it overclocks will have to see

    Change to 4K from 1080 and you'll see a big jump.

    1440p at 144Hz min or 4K should be a good fit.

    Yep, I am 144Hz 1440p freesync panel with a 1080Ti (I bought the card after the monitor). For that and a couple other reasons I am considering moving over. I know there will likely be minimal performance difference and a lot of power/heat excess though.

    Hold on these are just guesses not actual test results, Otherwise it wouldn't state this:

    Clickbait junk.

    Come on people at least vet what you post before posting it and then let us know what what your posting is.

    I thought the GTAV result looked odd considering how Nvidia's architecture is a lot more suited to the game giving them big leads.

    100% not legit

    It's not clear from your post whether or not you're aware that your 1080ti should now work with freesync.

    No I bought it over a year ago. I had a 390X to go with the monitor but it's obviously not up to 1440p 144Hz. At the time I looked at AMD alternatives but the 1080Ti was just so much quicker that it made Freesync less important.

    It’s ok nv deciding that they will support free sync, what about g sync are amd going to support that so green owners can switch to red?

    Closed standard, that choice is not up to AMD. Nvidia are not supporting Freesync per se, they are just announcing a few Freesync monitors as "G Sync Compatible".

    So not going to be less than about £799 on the store?
    I hope I'm eligible for that voucher then. Otherwise might just stick with the 290 I bought from overclockers back in 2013.
