    It looks like the end results will not be the all inspiring Intel killer originally though of. While it will be better than 12nm I think they are bracing us for the worse. 7nm looks to be just a slight incremental improvement now that Moore's law is dead. The original thought seemed to be 7nm was going to be at least a 15% to 20% improvement over intel's 14nm but I do not think this any longer to be the case.

    I think this is actually a good thing. having slightly faster products than the competition will raise demand on the CPU's slowly. Hopefully avoiding not being able to meet that demand. If Ryzen were to suddenly make Intel products antiquated it could cause supply issues. This especially as Intel may be a year or more before it can even start to answer.

    AMD is also now in the position that is may soon be able to hold some things up its sleeve to release to compete instead of visa versa. I do not doubt one day Intel may regain the CPU crown, if it is lost, but since AMD is planning the as a slow and long lasting process you can expect this to be a drawn out fight.

    AMD’s David Wang: We Won’t Implement DirectX RayTracing (DXR) In Games Until Its Offered In All (Gaming) Product Ranges
    By Usman Pirzada, 11 hours ago
    https://wccftech.com/amds-david-wan...-dxr-until-its-offered-in-all-product-ranges/

    "Japanese gaming site 4Gamer has managed to get a scoop from AMD’s David Wang (Senior Vice President of Engineering for Radeon Technologies Group) about the company’s plans to support DXR or DirectX Raytracing in games.

    “For the time being, AMD will definitely respond to Direct Raytracing,” for the moment we will focus on promoting the speed-up of offline CG production environments centered on AMD’s Radeon ProRender, which is offered free of charge ….. utilization of ray tracing games will not proceed unless we can offer ray tracing in all product ranges from low end to high end,”
    – David Wang, AMD in an interview to 4Gamer"

    AMD Radeon RX 590 final specs, pricing and performance
    Published: 13th Nov 2018, 18:22 GMT
    https://videocardz.com/79007/amd-radeon-rx-590-final-specs-pricing-and-performance

    "AMD Radeon RX 590 to cost 279 USD
    Let’s start with the most important piece of information. The official MSRP for Radeon RX 590 is 279 USD. This is a suggested price for nonexisting reference model (I mean there is a slide with a reference design, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be available). That said, the 279 USD price tag is likely just a starting point.

    The price of RX 590 is therefore 40 USD higher than RX 480 at launch and 50 USD higher than RX 580 at launch (we are talking about 8GB models here).

    It is important to note that Radeon RX 590 will be offered with a ‘blockbuster launch bundle’, with three ‘free’ titles included: Devil May Cry 5 (unreleased) The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2 (unreleased).

    The presentation has many references to AMD ecosystem, especially FreeSync monitors. AMD is advertising their GPU+display solution as ~200 USD cheaper than competitions’.

    RX 590: 12% better performance vs RX 580
    Thanks to refined Polaris architecture now utilizing 12nm fabrication process, AMD has managed to squeeze 12% more performance and 15% higher clock speeds out of Polaris silicon. These are official figures straight from the slide.

    The following tests were conducted with: Intel i7 7700K, 16GB DDR4 3000 MHz, AMD Driver 18.40, Windows 10. AMD also used GeForce 416.34 and 399.24 driver in various tests. The footnotes have more details, including 3DMark results, which I added below.

    All tests were performed at a 1080p resolution with ‘maximum settings’.

    Remember these are official tests performed by AMD employees. Independent reviews will be available on November 15th:

    The extra performance is a good reason to buy new rather than a used 580 at these price points.

    Why I Sold My Vega 64 For an RX 580
    FocusTripp
    Published on Jun 10, 2018
    Pretty simple, it works better for my current situation and I don't lose as much value in it as I would with a Vega 64. also, it's quiet.

    Crossfire RX 580's = 1080ti performance?!...well kind of

    Should you buy an extra RX 580 in 2018 to try to achieve those next generation performance numbers? With the almost best case scenario system, we explore RX 580 crossfire and it's short comings in 2018!

    https://wccftech.com/amd-epyc-rome-64-core-7nm-flagship-cpu-clocks-2-35-ghz/

    Well, cats out of the bag! I calculated that speed from the all core boost of the 7601 Epyc chips, which the zen 2 doubled performance and an IPC of 13% was expected, so I reduced the speed by 13%. That would seem to be base clock, so boost of the 64 core chip will be even higher, adding more performance. If my headaches didn't get in the way of finishing that article, I would have looked awesome at that revelation in a slide deck from HPE.

    The AMD Radeon RX590 is a "new" GPU that's based on old technology. But our performance benchmarks may tell a different story when the RX590 is compared against the RX580 and GTX 1060 6GB.
