Sounds interesting to us folder:

yes but vega 64 was a complete power hog so unless we get 2080 performance or better nvidia will still be more efficient

I guess due to AMD new 7nm process the Radeon Vega II matches efficency with current Nvidia 14nm process in turing RTX 2080 GPUs. Sounds good to have a real alternative to Nvidia. (That is why Nvidia will also do 7nm shrink release in 2020)

Technically, half the die size means either half the power consumption, or nearly double the performance. Usually, it's a mix of both.
At 60% better performance, we can expect 40% lower power consumption than the Vega cards
New 7nm AMD cards might be interesting for folders, if those cards will be stable and are proven to be reliable. 2 things that get harder and harder to do, with smaller lithography.
