I agree. Honestly speaking, I'm not sure whether AMD can easily compete with NVIDIA's high-end offerings even with the next-gen GPUs. NAVI was supposed to be a major leap in GPU architecture, and they used 7nm fab process node for these chips as well, but the performance could have better.And not to mention if their new cards do trade blows, it'll only be at stock values and I don't think the AMD cards will overclock at all on the same level as NVIDIA
Especially if they can't get them to trade blows with a similar TDP and temps when under load.
Even though Nvidia's latest TURING GPUs are fabbed on a 12nm process node, they are more power efficient and faster than AMD"s offerings.
Also, RTX 3000 series GPUs might come out next year, and these chips are going to be much more faster and efficient when compared to current TURING lineup, RTX series. So NVIDIA is still on top of the performance crown.
But the NAVI 5700/XT GPUs aren't bad either. Many custom AIB models are also coming out soon, and these chips should run cooler as well.
