    might still be media embargo or something similar. Once all the data is out perhaps sebbbi can talk about.

    Perhaps devs who got it for free have extended NDAs?
    Or maybe @sebbbi just doesn't have the free time in his hands to do something someone else will do within hours..


    Weirdest release ever, regardless.

    How many fps does your game get on your new card compared to your old card?

    Also I'll follow your advice... @Rys can you at least tell us if Vega supports conservative rasterization and ROV's? or tell me when I can expect that info to come out.

    Considering, that the card just went out today, I think it is possible that he just got it directly from AMD. Possibly, he doesn't what to risk, what he can or can't talk about :)

    By the way, why is everybody (not only on this forum) so wrapped up about Vega FE's market segment. It seems pretty clear that they are targeting the Titan segment whatever that is. Something around prosumer, supposedly. Not only that, but they seem to be copying NVIDIA, who also launched GP102 first in Titan. And yes, I realize that right now AMD doesn't have an answer in the high end, but if you are supply limited, would you rather sell your supply for $500-600 a piece or for $1000-1500? TBH, especially with the mining craze right now, if they launch say 10000 cards at $600, it is not clear if any card would end up in gamers' hands, anyway.

    Just saw Roy Taylor post a link up to this on his Facebook account, I still can't quite believe it's real. Please someone tell me it's a joke and not real!



    If that's real, I am not taking it as a good sign for the card. :(

    At the end, I was expecting "Building Better Worlds"...

    It's called marketing, they're hyping up the release. What does it have to do with the quality of the product itself? What's your main problem with it?

    You know what's the best marketing for this segment? Numbers :p

    I take it as zero signs for the card, which is just as much as all other RTG marketing stunts so far.

    Did the "make some noise" thing ever tell you anything about the cards they were presenting? Or even the Walter cross-promotion?


    Exactly. I don't know who/how RTG got convinced these hollow stunts will bring them more sales and marketshare. Maybe I'm wrong and lots of people buy their cards based on YouTube videos about random pasta, but I'd think most people buy their cards based on public benchmarks from websites or from word of mouth, both of which these videos contribute nothing for.

    Now we have redditors aiming their cannons at Sebbbi:



    Didn't take that long :lol:

    I imagine it's a combination of both. It would not be far fetched to believe that Sebbbi was identified to receive hardware before everyone else to provide feedback where necessary; his knowledge and understanding of GCN is top shelf.

    I could not have been the only one left waiting for "screw this, we'll just play games" punchline ala 3dfx ads of yore?

    Hehe, that entertained me for a bit. Wasn't short on car analogies either.

    PS: @sebbi what are you doing with your life? According to one reddit poster you could apparently be making millions on youtube!!! (OK he didn't actually say millions but it was kinda implicit)

    I think RX Vega will be comparable to Radeon 9700 in terms of impact.

    I handed the board to him myself earlier today in Helsinki, over a beer. The joys of looking after Game Engineering for Europe. Full architecture details will come out later, can't spoil that, but it is FL 12_1 top tier for everything.

    Why do you think it is a joke? Just think in analogues - of where AMD was before and where AMD will be after.
