This is bad, we desperately need to AMD change something on GPU market. They take 10% from Intel thanks to nice Ryzen results but they struggle to offer same performance as NVIDIA. NVIDIA launch Pascal before 13-14 months. And AMD premium and long waiting card is in level of mid range GeForce old more than year? WTF?
They should be 40-50% ahead of TITAN Xp with new architecture and than NVIDIA to beat them with Volta. That would be war on market and price would be much better. But now damn price of GTX1080Ti will stay same... :mad: Never mind, I need GPU, that must be done, but prices are insane. If you compare PCB before 5-6 years of 500$ worth GPU and now 500$ worth GPU PCB that's funny. ASUS GTX580 Fermi full chip, GF110, used and for Tesla, with same number of CUDA was available for 450 euro. Now for that money you can get one empty PCB and lower mid range segment.

Yes and AMD have one more problem, higher power consumption stop them to drop price of RX Vega and offer as affordable CF. But you know AMD, they will offer some very attractive bundle with RX Vega, Crosshair VI Extreme and 1800X or even Zenith Extreme and 1950X and discount will be significant if someone use everything together. Imagine ASUS Zenith, 1950X and ASUS RX Vega. For me example power consumption is not problem, even for Tri Fire because of that I always advice people don't go below 850-1000W. There is few models of 1KW in very small PC case and coud fit in smallest PC case with ATX PSU Support.
If we look total picture AMD still is not good in GPU section, they revive CPU line but GPU is still half dead. Why is not good... Because they late 12 months to NVIDIA, and 12 months later, whole year, they can't offer same performance in similar power consumption as NVIDIA. Under normal circumstances we would expect AMD to beat TITAN Xp in 250-300W power consumption. Now he will fight for market with GTX1080 and she need only 180W less... That mean you can power on almost SLI for RX Vega. But I believe if they build so good Processors they could done and with Graphic processors.
