The thing is, I believe a lot of people are like me. I have an R9 290 . I want to upgrade coz I have upgraded to a 1440p monitor and R9 290 cant quite cut it anymore, it is just barely enough to max out Overwatch . Besides that, the Hawaii chipset lack modern HTPC features, cannot decode HEVC 10 bit and no support for VP9 making YouTube 4k60 video almost maxing out my CPU.  So logical upgrade path for me inside the red camp should be RX Vega only since RX 480/580 is not consider an upgrade , but a sidegrade. Big improvement on power efficiency, but nothing significant on my FPS. So no point going for me going after those cards.
I don't give a thing about power consumption, so I can accept the RX Vega with the 2x8 pin power connectors but that kind of price/performance really puts me off . True, RX Vega is good for miners but that kind of pricing really pushes gamers off to the green camp because there is no worthwhile upgrade path for Hawaii chip users.

True, this is the reason i upgraded from R9 290 to GTX1080 week ago. And no, the power for RX Vega is a concern to me. Imagine now my 1080 will have fan turned off with GPU temp hover around 35'C in 2D desktop mode, u will appreciate it once u had try that.
