500$ sounds like too much for a Vega 64, in Spain it is seen in offers over 390€ and you are getting The Division 2, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 for free. The Radeon VII is seriously overpriced due to the excessive amount of RAM, and all the RTX (but the 2060) seem overpriced for me as Nvidia is leading the market.

Are you sure that 500$ is the better price for the Vega 64 in your country? It would probably be anyways worth it because of the wide and cheap Freesync support, but for 500$ here and probably in your country you can get more powerful GTX 10XX cards.

I don't think so, the Radeon VII has a different target as it costs much more (>699$) being just slightly better for games than the 64, many games show a 25% FPS advantage (which is deffinitely not worth it from 400$) but some of them just are between a 5% and a 15% better.

The design featuring 16GB of expensive HBM2 memories looks like oriented for professional software computing because in terms of gaming is absolutely worthless.

The Radeon VII actually has less compute units than the Vega 64 which meeting the transistors reduction results in a very tiny die. Be sure that AMD will release the RX 6XX generation or whatever they call it, with will definitely feature a bigger number of compute units than the Vega 64 in a bigger die than the Radeon VII one and with GDDR6 in less quantities, resulting in definitely better performance per dollar cards than Nvidia ones, specially better than the RTX which have an extra cost due to the raytracing dedicadted hardware.

Anyways, the Vega 64 has a great value and is one of the best performance per dollar cards today, the next generation Vega cards are probably more than half a year away and if it is about talking about the future, Nvidia will have at least the 10nm process for the next year (as it was planned for the RTX card but was delayed and hence we got them manufactured at 12nm) and if rumours of getting Samsung's 8nm process instead, then Nvidia will again be far away for AMD in the high end.
 


Samsung's 7nm

Good points you make
