Very surprised to see people leaning towards not buying. A 30% on average (give or take) over the V64 is a decent jump in performance but I also see where people are coming from in terms of price. As has been said by @Dicehunter "it is a Mi50 card that looks like a stop gap before Navi, which isn't a bad thing really and it will have enough VRAM to run 8K (although maybe not the grunt). I genuinely do feel for AMD and would love to see them, going toe to toe but going from this thread, they are not really helping themselves and whilst NVidia are being the greedy money grabbers, even I didn't expect AMD to follow suit (although price wise, HBM2 isn't cheap, so maybe pricing is a little fairer from AMD). Lisa Su did say a couple of years ago that AMD is no longer a budget brand also. With Intel joining the discrete market, I sure hope Navi is decent.
