Would be a shame if they copy Nvidia's numbering scheme. They had a perfectly good one before (7700, 7850/7870, 7950/7970 etc), and the Vega scheme of including the GPU codename was interesting. I'd rather see "Navi 20" than Radeon 3080.
Yeah, though I still don't see why they couldn't have been more sensible and called the Vega generation RX 690(X) and then the Navi ones would be RX 7xx.
Plus, the Radeon 3080 scans as a bit too close for comfort (for me) to Radeon 3800 which I was quite used to seeing reported by software for my HD 3850 for a long while back when, and those things were a value proposition for poorer gamers at best, the top card launching behind NVIDIA's top 4 cards at the time... (8800 Ultra, 8800 GTX, 8800 GT, 8800 GTS 640 MB)
EDIT: hang on Watson
- "performance in the RTX 2070 ballpark" means performance behind that offered by NVIDIA's top 5 cards now
too (Titan RTX, RTX 2080 Ti, Titan V, RTX 2080, GTX 1080 Ti). It may even be that "in the ballpark" means what it usually would and performance is sub-2070 level, so the top RX 3000 card would actually be behind NVIDIA's top 6 cards including the RTX 2070 ... okay, it's $350
