    So excited! I know this will be a great gpu and I do hope it will drag 980ti's price down!
    If only it is 8GB.... We need a strong AMD!

    Am all set and ready too!

    So far in leaked benchmarks AMD's Fury X(?) has been beating the competition's Titan X that has 12GB VRAM at 4K resolutions, so it would seem their engineers has made some dramatic improvements in the efficient use of video memory for the Fury card.

    I'm Really looking forward to buying my 1st ever top end card when it is still new this time around perhaps :)



    oh, and just for those not sure, there will be no 30,000 limit on the number of Fury X cards available for sale this year. (those numbers did sound painful to me, but I'd not seen anyone refute that rumour till now)

    Several benchmarks and games use less than 4 GB in 4k.
    I want to see benchmarks with Shadow of Mordor or FarCry 4 @ULTRA-4KUHD.

    There is a very recent (yesterday) review of VRAM and Games@4k in tweaktown.

    You got it, it is indeed 5pm GMT Daylight Saving time.



    @FranciscoCL
    I was wondering the same thing in the back of my mind. The benchmark I saw was firestrike.

    AMD have claimed that due to the increase in VRAM sizes Required for greater bandwidth, no one bothered making the coding more efficient, so there were areas waiting for massive improvement. It is going to be rather pertinent with their new Top Of the Line card with its 4GB....!

    Can't wait to see what they have to say about this today ^^

    No. GMT is just that (and UTC). BST is GMT+1 without altering GMT. A clock doesn't need daylight. So it's now 15:30 GMT and 16:30 BST. You can't just shift GLOBAL TIME around for something that only applies to our hemisphere atm.

    Are there any countries that ignore daylight saving / BST and use GMT all year around?

    Well it's kind of moot if you live close to the equator, isn't it? Wikipedia has a map...

    I mean, are there any countries that use GMT, that do not use Daylight saving?

    So are there any countries right now actually using GMT only without any +1 or -1 ?

    Do not confuse time zones and Daylight savings.
    GMT is Greenwich Mean Time, which is valid in Greenwich, England, and that time zone.
    GMT is either GMT or GMT+1, only in the British Isles, that time zone.

    BTW it just started. The stream. Sound at least.

    I know, but my point is, if there are no countries using purely GMT right now, because all are in daylight saving, then GMT is pointless in posting the times for

    Basically if all GMT using countries switch to Daylight saving, then GMT becomes useless until DS is over and they return to GMT

    Unless I'm missing something
