    LOL what were you expecting? I'm pretty excited to see how this goes. Zen sounds great as well. 40% IPC and 8C/16T is a recipe for greatness. It shouldn't be too hard to undercut Intel's ridiculous Broadwell-E pricing, bring back some competition.
  • junky77 - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    only with a much better DX12/Vulkan performance
  • Sttm - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - link

    They lost me when they used Ashes for the game. Everyone knows they have an edge in it, thats good for them, but its not a popular game. Show me that $400 multigpu setup matching a 1080 in BF One, or Witcher 3, or Fallout 4, or any other major title that is coming out and will do a billion dollars in sales.
  • Meteor2 - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Might have to wait for the reviews... hint hint Anandtech!
  • lashek37 - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Amd is giving up ??? I'm more confused than a ,homeless man on house arrest .AMD was the reason I joind Anandtech all these years .I give up
  • nandnandnand - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    WTF does it matter? Graphics are graphics. Good thing they didn't use Pong.
  • ShieTar - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Hate the game, not the engine ;-)

    Everyone knows that Ashes is a tech-demo with a little bit of playability on the side. But every game based on the Nitrous Engine will run very well on AMD GPUs. And results for the EGO 3.0 engine look similar, just to name one example.

    It might take a while until really good games based on the new engines pop up, but I do understand AMDs optimism at this point. Its just a question of when the first really valuable AAA title based on these new engines hits the stores.
  • Alexvrb - Thursday, June 2, 2016 - link

    Why wouldn't they want to show off their new hardware with new software that takes advantage of new software paradigms? And Fallout (while I like the game itself) is an especially bad example of technology, that's built on the aging Creation engine. Might as well bench Oblivion!

    But seriously at $199 a pop they're going to do quite well, just as the 1070 and 1080 will in the higher brackets.
  • slickr - Thursday, June 2, 2016 - link

    They don't have DX12 support and to anyone with a brain its clear that DX12 is the future and we'll be seeing most gaming titles utilize DX12 by 2017.

    Ashes of Singularity is the only game that was build as a DX12 game and takes full advantage of DX12.
    The fact that AMD has such big advantage in the only true DX12 built game speaks volumes about how much better AMD will be in DX12 titles.

    With Xbox One also updating to DX12, we'll be seeing a lot more games using DX12 and by 2017 I expect most games to be build on DX12.

    Dear AMD, I love you and your announcements are cool but for the love of God please take a page from E3 and learn to script your talks with a little more enthusiasm. Either that or stop live streaming them. ..... do like that $199 price for the RX 480 though
