How is this bad news for performance enthusiasts? This card has a higher clock speed, IPC and number of shaders than the current Vega 20 chip!?
Seems a bit misrepresentative tbh... It should perform between 10 and 30% faster depending on the application. Remember that RDNA is a half-step to a new architecture, while it may retain compatibility with GCN, it's different enough that its performance characteristics can't be compared exactly.
