The journey to Radeon RX Vega has been a very long one, but the wait is worth it in quite a number of ways. AMD flew out nearly 100 journalists, YouTubers, and analysts to the Ryzen Tech Day 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Leading up to this event, I've made my thoughts on AMD and its new Radeon RX Vega clear: they needed to beat NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 and be cheaper. It became clear months ago that AMD wasn't ready to combat the GTX 1080 Ti, and that is definitely the case. AMD doesn't have an answer for the GTX 1080 Ti, yet.

The rumors of a massive $850 price point on Radeon RX Vega was so wrong in comparison because AMD is in a unique position. A position so good that NVIDIA is not capable of offers gamers a deal like AMD is providing with RX Vega.

AMD reiterated its position in being a company that thinks about the value of the ecosystem, and not just their graphics card and display. NVIDIA can only offer gamers a graphics card and G-Sync range of displays, while AMD can shake the entire market by offering incredible value across graphics cards, CPUs, motherboards, and displays. A much larger market than NVIDIA has control over, and AMD really put its foot down in the sand and really pressed it down, hard.
