Ah, yes. The AMD hype train. What the Ryzen giveth, the Navi taketh away (actually I think AMD itself should be more excited by Rome, but that isn't for most of the people here).

To be honest, I'm always glad that AMD can reduce the size of the "nvidia monopoly zone" of performance levels that they can extract maximal prices, but I already have a great 1920x1080 card and I want a card that can do 4K@60Hz. "Somewhat better than Vega" won't get there.

Perhaps there is a strong market for higher frequency 1080 cards (certainly, and maybe with Ryzen 3000 they will compete with Intel there as well), and perhaps some 1440@60Hz as well, but AMD has completely abandoned the "upgrade train" sales plan (that nvidia is still executing quite well).

I already bought a MSI Radeon VII and so really not that hyped up on Navi..BUT interesting to see what the can really match to Nvidia 2060/2070 cards.

I need to upgrade my old i5 2500k PC with a updated GPU (it is still using 2 Asus GTX560 Ti that are Sli) for my GF son so we can both game at the same time.
