Musk's business plan on everything he is doing himself is order of magnitude cost reductions over the status quo, that makes mass production viable.

Space X - reusable rockets will collapse pricing, leading to higher demand and greater profits per flight.

Tesla - mass production of batteries will collapse the price of these battery packs, making EVs viable at consumer price ranges, leading to higher demand, further reducing component costs ...

Boring Company - reducing costs of tunnel boring by 100x by compromising massively on tunnel girth and reusing spoil for tunnel casings will lead to possibility of mass, automated, high-speed premium 'lanes' for traffic to enter/leave cities. This is the one that seems barking to me.

Solar Panel Company (now part of Tesla) - again, reduce costs of solar power, create a market for home battery storage (from Tesla), etc.

Hyperloop was set free probably because Musk couldn't see the way to cost reduce enough to make it truly viable. It's also pretty limited.

JeeBee, I think your post is an interesting topic of discussion, but we should probably get back to the id Software engine.

So Doom already runs well on AMD hardware, what are the chances that the new engine narrows the gap on the CPU side, and what impact might it have with Vega performance? I was under the impression that AMD was working much harder at collaborating with developers so I kinda expected a lot better out of Prey, but wasn't there a patch or driver update after the game came out to somewhat resolve the issue? Has anyone redone benchmarks since?

Seems like id does a better job at tailoring the engines for the hardware.

High chances. Very positive impact. That's the goal - Ryzen + Vega to perform excellent with the new engine.
