No, but we've been hoping and expecting AMD to come out with something that would be top of the line. What was the last one we saw on top, the Fury X? How long ago was that?

And to be honest, the 980 Ti quickly overtook it, even if just slightly.

I don't disagree that AMD has been negligent in releasing truly competitive high-end GPUs. But that's just the very recent past. The underwhelming nature of Vega will surely have implications for Navi.

I don't blame AMD on how their high end offerings have panned out. That is a part of the market and the price to produce such cards. Further, these cards need an alternative market to sell to if the primary market dries up or is over-saturated.

The expectation for Navi is each chip will be like a Radeon 580 that can be glued together to form high end and extreme GPUs. The point of this is that most people can't afford a $500 or even $1,000 GPU.

Amd focusing on mobile now. So that might help them. Amd is staggeringly far behind nvidia. It takes amd more than twice the compute and twice the memory bandwidth and twice the electricity to barely match nvidia.
Nvidia got their huge lead by chasing mobile, then powering up the mobile designs for a desktop.
