So it is released few tests are already published. Is there anyone who preordered it?

Well s*** i just bought 7 1070 for a rig... Are the new AMD GPU's with the HBM2 ram going to be better at mining then the ones with GDDR5???
Also no release date?

Thanks

Now this is music for the ears of miners. I love that 16384 MB or 16 GB GDDR5 memory and that extreme bandwidth 483.8GB and the bus width extreme of 2048 bit. I think this will make about 40-42 mhash out of the box in Ethereum and can even go to 50 mhash for a card with a bit of tweaking and overclocking.

I have made ready a board for September with an Asrock K4 B250 gaming with 6-GPUs ready to be filled when these vega cards came out.
Truly spectacular specs if they are for real Smiley

This is still the non-consumer card, but it's good to see the chipset is finally out in the wild and available, albeit at an exaggerated price point at the moment.

The real question is going to be final consumer grade cards pricing and electricity usage, it's been pretty clear for a while that these will have a considerable improvement over current generation hardware in almost all respects, BUT if the unit price and cost to operate stay as high as many estimates I've read over the past months, the 5xx and 10xx series cards will still be the value leaders. 

This is doubly so considering that once Vega consumer cards are readily available they'll provide more market competition on card prices, on top of the price pressure the "mining only" cards are likely going to provide.

well, there is not too much improvement regarding power usage as it is manufactured on 14nm, however the real question is new memory architecture HBM2 which could be good in eth (or actually not like we saw on HBM v1)

Zcash might be awesome on Frontier cards. Hopefully someone tests mining on one of those Vegas and releases the results.

I have one coming in for testing...will post results. Ill also be able to do some hardcore BIOS mods on it so should be interesting to see what can be done with it.

I suspect any real speeds up will need miner devs to to low level changes to code specifically for the NCU and HBM2 architecture. These should be able to be pushed close to the theoretical 55-60MH cap.

What should be more interesting is how these do with Zcash, LBRY etc...since they should be as fast or faster than 1080 (and some really interesting opportunities with dual mining on them).

You could get four of the mining cards and get 110+ MH/s for the same price. The workstation cards are never good for mining. Better to wait for the gaming version which will be cheaper.

30-33 Mh/s that's disappointing.  

You can get 32 Mh/s with a GTX 1070.

I don't know about you but for me this is good news.
Maybe we won't need to change our cards for another few months

Really wan't to know more about the gaming version.
Now i'm thinking of the 1080ti's, but if the gaming has almost the same power at a lower price it will be good.

by end of july for consumers, some places may start seeing them popup over next weeks approaching end of july i bet tho

these frontier cards are just AMD flexing the new mem type and will not be the bomb ETH miners i dont think (tho if anyone can get them to 50+ it's Jstefanop haha so i am excited to see his results)
 i am really more intrested in equihash and dual-mining results as well

That is on completely stock settings and looks like he was using an old genoil miner. Once BIOS mods are made and miners optimized for vega architecture it should do around 50 MH.

That's good news, is it better then to wait for vega for mining, and skip this ultra expensive rx models, btw what about polaris bug, will vega have the same dag-hash drop as polaris or they will not be affected like nvidia?

P.S. with mem clock at 700-1000mhz isnt that bad for equihash? Because equihash is more mem heavy than ethas.
