Look at the Hades Canyon NUC with Vega 24 and that's 1536 stream processors. That Stream prosser to ROP ratio is great and that's the same amount of ROPs as Vega 56/64 and if AMD could put 2 of these GPU DIEs on a PCIe card then that's enough ROPs to Blow the GTX1080Ti out of the water with a count of 128 total ROPs.

This Semi-custom Vega variant is tuned for gaming with that Stream Processor to ROP ratio being even better than Nvidia's Stream processor to ROP ratio. That's 24 nCU and the potential Pixel Fill rates of a Vega 56, or 64 that each have the exact numbers of ROPs as this Vega 24 semi-custom Vega design has and it just depends on the GPU clocks used for Vega 24.

If AMD takes the same Stream Processor to ROP ratio of Vega 24(semi-custom) and scales it Up while keeping the same SP to ROP ratio they can easily put Pascal(Every Variant) in the rear view mirror for total pixel fill rates. Nvidia ROP counts maxes out at 96 available for Pascal with the Gp102 based GTX1080ti only useing 88 ROPs. AMD's Vega 24(Semi-custom) variant is tuned out the wazoo for gaming and that ROP count alone should force Nvidia's hand.

MOG look at the ROP(64) counts on that baby and only 1536 SPs that's going to have a great Pixel Fill rate hands down.

P.S. Something has to be wrong with those ROP numbers as that just can not be correct! so A bog block of salt on that ROP count(?)

Any reason the video is still unlisted on Youtube?
