We got the impression from a few vega reviews that there were bottlenecks in gaming... I remember it being talked out in general but it wasnt investigated in depth nor did we find out how bad it was. But seems we left about 50% if not more perf on the table just due to the architecture. a 4096 shader part with 256 text units shouldve been a lot faster. I thought it was the 64 rops at the time and we were losing maybe 10-15% but the 5700XT seems to say its other things... cache maybe I dunno...
