It appears that on Tom’sHardware someone asked the question from AMD’s desktop CPU marketing manager. And this question was later raised by Wccftech and they write about it in pretty much good details. However, it caught our attention. But today we are going to be discussing and giving you the details of FreeSync and G-Sync.
How Vega compares to the 1080 Ti and Titan XP asked by a user goes by the name of PandaNation. But here’s the strange matter, I’ve chased down the original comment which I think Wccftech hasn’t checked and his reply is dissimilar from the Tom’sHardware summary connection in the Wccftech report.
In the Tom’sHardware report it says “Vega performance compared to the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti and Titan XP looks really nice“. But when you go back to the original question he says “It looks very nice.”
I’m not sure which to go over but either way that’s not bad. If I had a guess he probably erased it when Tom’sHardware actually pointed out in the article. Of course this is a CPU marketing manager so, it may not mean too much but I have no doubt if he didn’t know he probably wouldn’t have said anything. If we’re looking at the Tom’sHardware version, in a way it’s a no answer, but in a way it is.
The marketing manager must choose his words wisely, maybe I’m completely wrong but the question ask didn’t make reference to performance specifically but the answer given was Vega’s performance compared to Nvidia’s offerings. This could mean Vega may actually should be more expensive than the 1080. Which would be a change in AMD’s past marketing but with it being HBM2 it could be possible.
We have kept our hopes pretty low as the performance difference between the CES developer model and the release one could topple the 1080 Ti. We were certainly more hopeful for a price performance but this, we are even talking comparatively to the Titan XP which is kind of huge. They could have been hinting at more of price to performance but he actually said performance and the 1080 wasn’t even mentioned in this.
We could really be seeing Vega on the same level or higher with the 1080 Ti though still relatively a similar price. Either way it’s comparatively vague but it’s nice to know even the release of the 1080 Ti and Titan XP, they are so confident but of course whether it’s great price to performance or flat out faster the competition will be welcomed.
But what do you think? Is AMD going to come out swinging or is it going to be a major disappointment. Let us know in the comment section below.
