Which Indiana Jones movie was that emoticon?
THE MORAL OF THE STORY BEING... DONT SPECULATE.. THAT WAS ALL IN THIS VIDEO.. AND ALL IN THIS FORUM.. WAIT FOR THE CARD TO ARRIVE THEN GIVE REVIEWS.. THATS WHY I LIKE LINUS TECH TIPS.. bcz they dont rush out on weird reviews.. already.. on a new tech
It was entirely wrapped around "belief versus proof".
But just some funny stuff. Imagine yourself on surface of Moon, looking at Earth. Earth will cover larger area than Moon does when you look at it from Earth.
How many times bigger is Earth over Moon in such comparison? And diameter?
(just funny trivia to some)
ugh Kitguru is terrible..amd did the right thing.
i only trust hilbert and techspot for reviews
Can you let this subject die already and stop going off-topic please?
As for the others, go reply to his queries on that topic.
Everybody's on edge on these forums lately. What's wrong with all of you?
On topic: After seeing that video, if I were AMD, I wouldn't even send them an AMD sticker.
At first to me it sounded like AMD was taking their proverbial ball and going home, but they do have the right to pull his sample. Still if he were on the list to get one they should have just gone through with it. It still sounds like they want to cherry pick the reviews.
Another thing to point out is that I just tried AMD Dirt Rally. ON 295X2 it would not even start I've been posting tickets for a couple of months now. It worked if you disabled tiled monitors and run at 1080p basically.
Just fired it up and I have 100% scaling, tiled monitors works, the game fixed an error by itself when starting up by finally clearing the finallising message I've had for 2 months and runs in 4k at around 100frames per second with 8XAA.
Why couldn't AMD get their own built for AMD game working for me until I went Nvidia huh?!?! Drivers are the only thing that stopped my performance even in a title supposedly designed to show off AMD cards....
We all know the moon lading was a fake, and that this kitguru website didn't get their fury x for being unprofessional.
Iirc it also took them six-nine months to get the 5970 to scale in the ATi supported Dirt 2 back in the day...
The simple fact remains. AMD made all this sound as if they will only give out review cards as long as you promise to give them really good reviews.
Maybe they didn't mean it to come across as it did but man they are really stupid with the wording in the message to KG.
I think people like Hilbert will still be truthful and give an unbiased opinion and if he never then say goodbye to many believers. We put our trust into these people and many buy products based on what reviewers say.
The question now is, will HH be more thoughtful and careful of what he says about AMD products now and in the future.
it's always wise to do the negative conclusion after you do the real review when you know what your taking about and not before lol
that way you get your free card.
when I saw that clip [over at ocn ?] I went wtf .
he was pissed that he could not get into a room that no press were allowed into .
Bad PR is not really what they need right now. Still, this sort of thing makes it pretty clear it will fall just short of the 980Ti in most situations. AMD always falls just a little bit short. Not that it makes the card bad, but it's always a bit disappointing, and it's not going to help them keep their shrinking marketshare. Things certainly aren't looking good in the long term.
I'll say whatever I feel I should say. And I know AMD will respect that, they always have. After the AMD briefing event they have send the card and the driver + RG etc. Other then that they have not communicated about results or findings. And they won't. It's not their style.
Thing is, I don't know AMD as a party that interferes like that, not now and not ever.There might have been more stuff going on opposed to what KG is claiming. And yes, There are very few Fury samples available. They definitely shot themselves in the foot with that 15 minute video rant (and perhaps other stuff I dunno about). Perhaps KG should draw conclusions after they actually tested and reviewed the stuff next time ?
Your words are noted
If you compare AMD's internal 390X vs 980 benchmarks with their Fury X vs 980 Ti benchmarks
you'll see that Fury X wins over 980 Ti similarly, or in fact slightly better than 390X does against 980.
We know that in the real world 390X does not really win against 980, in fact we know that 980 is slightly faster overall.
So my guesstimate is Fury X and 980 Ti should come fairly equal, or a slight win at most for Fury X. Reference vs reference.
Another guesstimating method is MSRP:
Same price as 980 Ti ($649) tells us Fury X should win. They can't price it same as NV and with only 4GB unless it wins, right?
OC - we can only hope Fury X overclocks as well as 980 Ti.
Good news is it carries 500W AIO cooler. Bad news is that transistor density is even higher than Hawaii/Tonga.
Carrizo. 30% higher transistor density over kaveri. Bit better peak performance at high tdp, considerably more efficient at lower tdp.
Does it ring a bell? Fury X high TDP, Nano low TDP.
That 28nm which is used may be even as power efficient as 14nm right now.
Because Carrizo 15W configured is pretty close to intel's 15W CPUs.
I do not know how much Fury X can be OCed, but I guess power consumption will go up faster that r9-290x same way as carrizo's power consumption goes up faster than kaveri's once out of comfort zone.
But I think we should be fair and check r9-295x2 (500W) and compare Fury X power consumption at place where it touches that kind of performance. Then we can say AMD did or did not improve.
Why would anyone buy AMD anyways?
Dropping support after 2 Generations...
How dare you to speak, wash your mouth processor Kepler user!!!
lol, in all honesty it might be true, but nvidia played dirty trick with kepler performance downgrade, i don't care if it was on purpose or not, the fact that we been "forgotten" tells you a lot.
If that trend goes on, maxwell will have the same impact when pascal is out, i honestly love nvidia cards but can't stand their shady tactics, on other hand i dislike amd because of my personal xp, nvidia overall xperience is much much better.
its popcorn time u got to love it.......
