Apologies to all for the lack of activity, been busy with new baby & work. My general observation is that RDNA should run NVIDIA optimized games really well, but still a long way to go for efficiency. A good foundation for RDNA+ coming in 2020 no doubt.

Maxwell is on a much inferior node.

Power efficiency matters. It allows the 1050Ti to dominate the entry gaming notebook market, where the volume far exceeds desktop dGPUs. Currently, AMD GPUs are 2.5 generations behind NVIDIA in terms of perf/w. They need a miracle post-Navi to catch up.

This generation is the keyword here, consider that Zen 2 based APUs are late 2019. It'll be a new generation by the time it arrives.

If AMD can make chiplets + IO work for x86 cores that are very sensitive to latency, GPU chiplets is a definite go.

Disagree. GPUs in general don't care much about such minute differences in latencies. Think about current APUs that have to access system RAM, over the bus.

You've been in tech a long time, surely you do not believe for a single n-second that the tech press is objective and scientific and not rife with biases, conscious and insidious or otherwise subconscious.

The IPC gains with Zen 2 is most certainly going to be bigger leap than the 5% generational expectation. It is possibly 15% IPC given ES vs 2700X. Add in a modest clock speed bump from 7nm, and top skus at higher TDP with boost... Ryzen 3000 will lead per core + 2x cores.

If there's anyone left in the tech press that's underwhelmed by the Zen 2 vs 9900K demo, allow me to break it down. This is half a Ryzen 3000, engineering sample at less than peak clocks. It's as fast as a 9900K that blazes with boost 2.0 core vs core.

Though I have a gut feel that it may not even be necessary to scale on a small Navi. Combination of architecture bandwidth efficiency gains, faster DDR4 and the potential for a nice chunk of L4 high speed cache in the IO die.. IO die could be both the controller and crystal well.

There's also space there for a HBM2 stack, if the IO die is re-positioned.

Very excited about the possibility of Zen 2 APU, IO die + Zen 2 + Navi on a package is just so compelling for many markets! Congrats to and her teams.

It would completely destroy both AM4 & Threadripper's market to reveal such overwhelming power & efficiency gains as coming that soon. AMD had to show they have the IPC & clock speed gains, for a 8c Zen 2 to exceed 9900K, that's exactly what it demonstrates.

supporting Adaptive Sync is a huge development. Those in the tech discussion had always discarded that notion, the consensus being: "they don't have to, since isn't even competitive in GPUs anyway". Looks like the competition is about to return on 7nm Navi?

Now take it one step further, release the presentation so we can see whether there's anything lost in translation. ;)

Yes, definitely making your architecture and IP as node-independent as possible is the way to go forward.

You're missing the point. Calm down and re-think.

Barely a market for AMD currently. It's not going to remain barely a market in 2019 and beyond.

Since 16c/32t at high clocks and a affordable price on AM4 (consumer). Please don't use this outdated thinking. "Who needs more than 640K RAM?!".. AMD has a winner on their hands with chiplets and 7nm lead, they are going to use it to claw their way back to leadership position.
