So it's going to cost 100% more than the RX 2060, yet only perform about 30% better, or over 75% more than Vega, yet deliver 30% more performance...So much for getting somewhat excited about Vega II making its way to light. Wonder how thick a coating of dust these will collect in the warehouses, as there is -no- reason to purchase them, since at $700 you're higher than the RTX 2070, and if you're a content creator you should just go with Vega. Worse yet, no pressure on nVidia, so prices will remain sky high.
