    Interesting. Has GF provided any public information about the new process's performance?

    Yes, it was the only 14nm process GloFo had to offer (and even it was licensed from Samsung). The refreshes will be on this new process.

    AFAIK you don't have to re tape out designs from 14nm to the new (12nm/14nm+/whatever PR decides to call it) node. Makes it fairly cheap and fast to just take it up. Wonder if this means 7nm will be delayed? They didn't mention anything of the like, and I wouldn't have expected the first 7nm chips to be read till 2nd half of next year anyway.

    I wouldn't read into this for the 7nm process. This is just another example of the industry following or one-upping Intel's marketing. 14nm+ and 14nm++ given their own name, when in reality they're just natural process improvements that happen with every process. This 12nm is matured and improved 14nm.

    Why they bring crossfire when there is no possibility to buy even one card?

    So for me it looks like primitive shader are broken, that's why they go on with unimportant stuff like crossfire :(

    They're been fairly readily available for awhile now?

    Always a silly argument. Highly likely different programmers/team for things like Crossfire compared to working with primitives.

    I´d thought they said that the time of crossfire is over...

    Regardless of DX11, Xfire is a broken stuttery and/ or flickery mess.

    Does AMD cards still support that "zero core" tech they introduced back in the R5000 series when running multiple GPUs? (IE, basically no power draw, fan powered off on inactive crossfire card(s).) Someone needs to test and find out with Vega! :D
