    The 16 core and 12 core Threadripper CPUs were released a couple of days ago. Impressive processor AMD just released.
    The only down side at the moment is that motherboard makers are slow to release their products and cooling solutions are limited.

    Reviewers are posting unboxing videos of upcoming Vega GPU's
    The limited edition version looks cool

    Vega is kind of a disappointing but Navi is where to look forward to, as someone posted in another forum.

    So apparently Far Cry 5 will have a lot of Vega support, according to an announcement on Twitter:

    Defy Convention with AMD Radeon RX Vega | Forums

    Twitter is a great information source for me. I follow accounts by musicians, game developers, current events, and for software updates.
    But Far Cry 5 is still half a year away and they've been spamming stuff like art contests and this AMD stuff, so I had to unfollow them for
    now. Will check back in February maybe. All they do is tease gameplay for something you can't play until next year. That's good for when
    you want to make people aware your stuff exists but Ubisoft is overdoing it a bit with Far Cry, I feel. Because usually, I don't mind.

    Anyways, I'm glad there'll be AMD stuff in the game, but I hope they won't abandon the Nvidia specific features for it. I'm not switching
    anytime soon, so if the game won't support any Nvidia features besides the basics, I probably won't buy it.

    I realize that this is somewhat how AMD GPU owners must've felt over the last years, but it's not like it's my job to balance out the GPU
    market. I use what's the best value for me.

    Moved your post to this thread since I am moving away from the other thread due to the original subject being a bleak one.

    Anyhow
    I think AMD should not have bothered making this type partnership with Vega GPUs
    They should just cut their loses and look forward to Navi. Even if they add Vega features, the horsepower isn't there to provide benefits.

    There is a shortage of AMD Vega graphics chips.
    Due to the increased demand and production problems, availability of gaming Vega GPUs will not be plentiful until October

    AMD Vega graphics cards in shortages

    AMD's Vega 56 went on sale a couple of days ago and was out of stock right away.
    AMD didn't need to give away free games for these cards to sell; they are just giving those miners another option to be greedy

    AMD Ryzen based processors are outpacing Intel sales in Germany

    Mindfactory Report Aug 2017

    This is just one country but most likely the same thing could be happening in other countries

    AMD needs to push motherboard makers to release more models for the Ryzen platform.
    The selection for Intel chips is at least three times larger.
