This morning at their Capsaicin and Cream event, AMD demonstrated their Vega GPU architecture (in short, the GPU may make games smoother than possible), brought out lots of guests showing their best works with it, announce their version of GeForce Now known as Radeon Virtualized Encoding, which allows lower-end laptops and desktops to make use of Vega via cloud and then ended it with a poorly made announcement for the RX-Vega (that’s seriously the name). No dates for release and no, I don’t wanna know what they had for spicy food and ice cream tonight.
Tonight at their Gamers’ Celebration, Nvidia officially announced the GTX-1080ti. At $700, Nvidia claims that the video card can run the recently-released+graphically intensive Watch Dogs 2 and Deus-Ex: Mankind Divided at 5K, 60fps. Also announced is the Highlights mode for Shadowplay, their Aftermath app (that posts info on what happened with a Nvidia GPU post-crash) and a reduction of the original 1080's price to just $500. The new card will come out next week.

Wonderful... My brother will be fine with either a GTX 1050ti 4GB or a RX-470 4GB.
