February release is for Radeon 7, not for Navi.

Just ignore this debianxfce dude. he is trolling everywhere not just only here. Pointless to even argue with such a narrow minded person.

And yeah Navi should be arriving somewhere in June/July

https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Navi-RX-3080-3070-3060-specs-prices-leaked.374406.0.html


once again we are talking about rumours, the 3060 which would be on par to a rx580 on performance, 75watts no pcie extra power connection needed should be priced at u$d 130, which is a steal, I have to see it to believe, it would cannibalize the rx580. the 3060 at 160-150 is a more reasonable price and cut the 580 to 130 u$d, I think that's more likely.

This is interesting:

QuoteThe RX 3080 GPU will integrate 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, will have a TDP of 150 W, and it is expected to deliver 15% increased performance over the current Vega 64 chips. The MSRP is said to be US$250

But strange, given that they claimed that Radeon 7 is around 15% increase over Vega 64 as well, yet at comes at a crazy $700 price. Something just doesn't add up here.

Thats a bit strange indeed as GDDR6 isn't that cheap either AFAIK. Radeon 7 HBM2 16GB is said to cost around 320€ alone in that card, thats what makes the card so expensive. but that 8GB GDDR6 should be around ~150€, so that would leave only 100€ for the other parts of the GPU. Sounds too good to be true.

yeah i know i used Euros and the MSRP is said in USD, but they are usually 1:1 when it comes selling video cards here in Europe

if those prices are right I'm seriously thinking on selling my spare rx460, I have two, I've barely use it only for a few games that I run on crossfire sometimes in windows . In six months it would be worth nothing.


ps, (yes I went back to dual booting I couln't resist shadow of war, please feral port it asap)

Shmerl commented on 18 February 2019 at 2:02 am UTC

New suggested release time is July 2019.

ShmerlNew suggested release time is July 2019.

That would be right on time with Zen 2.
Currently with a Phenom II X4 + Radeon HD 7950.
I need a new rig.

Guess, I should wait some more months.
Prices will be probably quite high for new architecture prods.
