    Who cares if you get 190 or 185 fps in a game the difference really isnt big just buy the cheaper one

    YOU HAVE BUG EYES! *They’re destroying the whole town!*

  3. LMAO WTF says:

    Ima wait for the 1150 cuz I’m poor

  4. Fendoroid says:

    So Vega is better for mining than for gaming…

    Mine. All of them :3

  5. JT D says:

    2:23 Did that chart say that Vega 56 uses GDDR5?

  6. A Questionable Carrot says:

    NVIDIA FAN BOYS ARE BAD FOR THE MARKET. Buying Amd is better for the consumer, Amd offer similar or better performance for the money but fanboyism means Nvidia will almost always have a higher market share, if you want better gpus and better prices buy Amd if it is better or similar

  7. Ak Mungroo says:

    Noone saw what AMD did for the high power draw:
    1. FRTC – Frame Rate Target Control
    It allows you to cap the frames for your gaming purpose so that less load and power is drawn from the card

    2. Radeon Chill
    It will decrease framerate in non intensive parts effectively reducing power draw and GPU load

  8. Super Smart says:

    Amd’s Red
    Roses are Red 🌹
    Violets are Red 🌹
    Lilies are Red 🌹 Something’s wrong here…


  9. Martin M says:

    HOT yes, performance and power usage NOT.
    Sorry AMD, the Vega is shit and that comes from someone who has a Ryzen.

  10. MST PvtGarcia says:

    The stupid Radeon packs its Amd giving the middle finger to its own fans as no miner will ever put such power hungry cards on any mining rig cause at the end of the month they won’t have money to pay even the power bill, so I feel sorry that the most hard core AMD fans have to pay the price for AMD failures!

  11. Crunchy Biscuit says:

    Guys we got to remember that this was a more of a prototype card, I feel that amd will listen to the complaints and release a new card with less power draw. These where the first cards, not the last, or maybe I’m completely wrong idk

  12. TeleFata says:

    I’m waiting for Volta to upgrade from my 980Ti and I’ll get an AMD variant for computational work. I support both GPU manufacturers; you? 🤔

  13. Miguel C says:

    The Snapdragon 810 of AMD

  14. Metronic says:

    Can I run Synergy on that AMD Vega GPUs?

  15. trush0t1 says:

    I have bug eyes. Excuse me I have a town to destroy.

  16. Arek R. says:

    I have freesync monitor… and gtx1070… will upgrade to 1080ti 😀

    5:29 ?

  18. Eugene InLaw says:

    These coolers are complete shit… Your benchmarks are worth nothing

  19. Azio Prism says:

    *When i die, i want AMD to lower me into my grave, so i can be let down one last time*

  20. Freedom Supporter says:

    I’d just like to point out that the support for free drivers is much better on AMD graphics cards than Nvidia GPUs, resulting in few times higher performance on AMD video cards than the similarly priced Nvidia cards (with free drivers).

Consider instead only using free (as in freedom) software (for example, Phoronix Test Suite for benchmarking) to increase awareness about the importance of free software and, consequently, support their development and help people preserve their freedom.
