>no AMD consumer grade GPU until late 2019, possibly even early 2020

We're truly fucked aren't we? Imagine having to buy GTX 1060s at MSRP in 2020 because we're not fucking getting anything new until then and the most we might hope from Nvidia is a shitty incremental refresh with 10% performance boost.

Why is the GPU market so fucked bros
>>
Yeah imagine not being able to buy a new freshly released video card every year like a fucking moron with too much of daddy's trust fund money to burn. What is wrong with you? I can run new games on a GPU that I purchased in 2012. Needing to have new technology to this point is a mental disease.

Don't forget Navi is literally a custum made arch for Sony and their Playstation 5.
As with Vega, PC gaming is not the top priority and merely an afterthought.
Don't expect more than an upgraded RX480 that will have horrible driver optimisation because of a new arch and focus on consoles that have the optimisations done by the developers.
The 2021 big Navi may bring some """""competition""""" to the higher end like Fury and Vega did but it is clear that AMD has given up on PC gaming.
And no, Intel will not save you.
They will focus on the Server/Datacenter market only.
Hold onto your memories of a GPU market with actual competition and innovation because it will only get worse from now.

That's what novideo fanboys get for buying games with gameworks.
If you don't want to buy an AMD card that runs warmer and performs slightly worse, that's understandable. Supporting AAA studios who take Jacket man's money and optimise the games only for Nvidia only hurts AMD users more, and now it'll hurt everyone.

Ur mad anon. Its a cheap gpu with more than acceptable performance. It falls short only in games that rely on CPU too heavily for it to compensate, whereas a 1080 would do just fine with a shitty cpu.

You realize computer games have been around since the beginning of personal computers right? Many people bought shit like Atari and Commodore computers just for games. That's part of the reason PC clones took off. Not to mention consumer 3d accelerators literally only exist because of gaming, without 3DFX, Nvidia and ATI we'd still be getting raped by SGI.

I hate Ubishit too but other than the guns feeling like children's toys and the explosives being overpowered (and fun) as shit, it's a very good game, and it's already been cracked so it's not like I bought it. I haven't played a game with an ending as good as that since, well, Red Dead Redemption, really, or maybe Doom 2016 if I were to be less generous.

C2077 demo was supposedly running on the Xbox One X, which is RX570 level hardware. All of those games you listed were essentially running on an RX570, as that's roughly what the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro GPUs are.

Anyone with an RX570/RX580/RX480 is still going to be fine for years.
Meanwhile in a few more years, 1080 drivers are going to be downgraded to worse than Polaris just like with Fermi to see the new $1200 GTX 1180.

>he hates Cyberpunk 2077, a game he hasn't even played yet
Don't tell me you hate the fucking sun, too, Anon.
Back to /v/, with everyone else who doesn't actually play video games, you go.

>>66349607
I don't disagree, but if you haven't noticed, RX 570s are STILL not going for MSRP in most places. In fact they're running for 300 euros down here. This will only be fixed when the new stuff comes out. And I really hope the new stuff is good because I really fucking hate the prospect of being stuck on the 1050ti I bought as a fucking placeholder for two more years.

>>66349633
It's 6.2 teraflops and those numbers are probably calculated using clocks the actual shitty thermal system console can't sustain for 10 seconds, so in real world terms it's an RX 570X with decent optimisation.
>>
>>66349633
wow you are actually retarded and don't know what clock speed is.

Though you could say PS4 is, in some aspects, better as it has the double fate FP16. It's FP32 is significantly worse.

>>66349661
Yeah, you can get RX580 for decent prices sometimes. There's an RX580 8GB for $280 that includes a $20 steam card, and it is a decent model one.

I was on first gen GCN a long time and finally upgraded. Though the FPS increase in games isn't massive, it no longer blows hot air out of my case, has better video decode, and tons of other little features I didn't really think about before.
I wanted to wait for Navi, or I was hoping maybe they'd make a 40CU Vega with 2x 2GB HBM stacks, but nope. So I got this to hold me over until I can upgrade to 4k, and I'm happy with it.

Cheapest 580 you can get here is still 300 euros, and it's an ugly XFX twin heatpipe twin fan version that can't boost for shit, not paying more than 50 over MSRP for that shit. Besides, it's a three year old card, it should be going for under 200 by now, this is some bullshit.

I mean yeah my 1050ti runs cool as ice, ShadowPlay works great and I can still play anything I want on UltraMeme screen but the second the new cards roll out Nvidia's going to fuck me over, so I want AMD to get its shit together and stop scamming retards who are still trying to mine.

how likely are they to support the vega 56/64 for the next few years? i dont want them to drop me like they did with the 7970
>>
>>66350096
They dropped the 7970? Before or after they rehashed it twice with the 280X and the 380?
If you weren't satisfied with the 7970's support, well the Vegas sold a lot worse among gamers, so expect worse, unless they just shrink the same architecture to 7nm and have them be the new stepdown flagships next year, in which case, support will be about the same.
>>
>>66350138

No, so it's embarrassing how Vega 56 is a fuck huge die and is competing with it. Vega 64 and 1080Ti have no big die size difference, but the 1080Ti is considerably stronger. Nvidia driver magic man, they're great in software.

>>66345233
It's "midrange" in that the die is small. Look up die sizes, Pascal and Maxwell sold midrange dies at high tier prices. I think Kepler did it too?

Vega on 7nm doesn't look like it's coming to consumers which is a shame. The shrink looks pretty good.
Nvidia would crush them by going 7nm as well, but the 7nm Vega would definitely at least match the 1080Ti with a smaller die.

When you consider the money earned from reselling the old computer parts you can build a new pc every two years for the net cost of $1000. That is only $500 a year to own a top of the line $1500-$2000 macine.
>>
>>66345233
The 1080 ti is so far ahead of the 1080 that yes 1080 is a midrange card. Anything less then the 1080 is low tier or budget at best. Bear in mind nvidia needs those cards because they sell world wide and many 3rd world countries cannot afford better.

At 30hz. To run on my 1440p 165hz monitor with ultra settings the 1080ti is optimal.

Every time I have tried to play through that game I have had some major fucking reinstall-Windows-tier bug. First time my OS drive just up and died after a CTD followed by my computer rebooting, second time there was another CTD during one of the end game boss fights caused networking to completely stop working. System restores, reinstalling drivers, all kinds of other hacky methods, nothing fixed it except reinstalling Windows. That one also corrupted my save. New save was corrupted by a BSOD about 14 hours in, after that I said fuck it. This was across two separate machines with no shared parts too.

Yes that's true. It was 4k at 30fps.
That's still good for an RX570 tho.
Means Vega56 or 64 will probably do 4k 60 on it at least on reasonable settings.

>>66353665
Uh what?
An RX560 is considerably below a 7970.
An RX580 is pretty much straight up 2x the performance of the RX560, whereas it's 40-70% above a 7970.
Oh Anon said 7950. Idk I guess yeah it's an RX560 on the lower end, but will occasionally outperform it.

>>66354339
Artic silver is actually pretty trash. You could probably knock another 3-5C off with good thermal paste.
