A 16gb framebuffer is huge. Great for Pimax if they can get it working.
If we are extremely conservative with Vega VII gains, this card will perform comfortably where an overclocked 1080 non TI card does in all games. Why do I say that? Based on Gamers Nexus’ overclock of a gen1 Vega with a 242% power table mod. In his video it traded blows with 2070 in some titles, and was ahead of a 1080. Vega VII is a die shrink, so I dont see it overcoming the usual drawbacks.
That said, I’m buying this over BS RTX any day!
The trouble with Vega is in maintaining high clocks without hitting thermal and power limits. I also want this card, because its an awesome deal at $699.
16gb of HBM2? 1 terabyte of memory bandwidth? Yay!
