Well, after a somewhat disappointing Key note from AMD, it looks like their products aren’t really ready yet.
Plusses are, ryzen 3000 will be a killer, if you wait to mid or end 2019. It’s half sized demo already beating Intel 9900
Navi is not ready. Rumoured no earlier than mid to late 2019 and that’s if that goes to plan.
Stop gap radeon 7 released which is a competitor to RTX 2080 card. Whilst it has 16 gig of very expensive ram, it has no rtx or tensa cores which means no rtx (not that many games have it now) and no DLSS. Worst part is, it’s the same fricken price as an rtx 2080. So while the radeon 7 maybe a good card, it’s priced a bit on the poo side.
So, what’s my thoughts.
AMD have some very exciting things on the way, unfortunately not ready yet. The CPU will be killer and NAVI, who knows when?
Those of you looking to upgrade, I would hazard that you try to save your money or do a cheap interim upgrade. At least until q4 2019. There are some great things comming but not ready yet. Also if the AMD rumour mill is correct, and AMD, don’t do an Nvidia pricing structure, there will be a price war either at end of 2019 or early 2020 based on projected rumours.
