    Do you think that Amd Polaris will be able to match the new Nvidia Pascal architecture?

    Impressive, the first graphic card's gpu being clocked at over 2ghz.

    What's impressive is the one 8-pin power connector (at least on the reference; sure o/c'ed models with be 6 & 8)

    They run cool, but we will see @ how far they can be pushed. Running in the mid 60s while being pushed, leaves them a lot of room in terms of temp,

    Well, I'll wait for manufacturer's reviews before I purchase one. I have to see first, if having the Founder label is worth the extra money. But, looking at these benchmarks is nothing to help Amd become profitable.

    Thanks for the links.

    I think you are right, this is bad news for Amd. If they want to keep selling Fury X, AMD will have to cut pricing by a lot.
