That is the problem, Vega is going to be quite late to the party.

Why? In Luxmark 1080 Pascal is equal to year old Fury X. Vega should be here in 5 months or so. Tomorrow I will run luxmark and blender with my RX480 Red Devil.

With the same cost of a 1080 or a Fury, you can buy several HD7970 and outperform both, both GPU vendors are sleeping on the GPU computing side.

They are not sleeping, since your several 7970s will use much more power and output much more heat. nvidias idea is to make lean gaming cards by completely removing compute from their cards. AMD just disables theirs. Will see what Vega brings, since I suspect it will have similar compute capabilities as Fiji, just more beefed up and higher clocks.
