Who isnt going to upgrade to Win10/DX12 ?
What you think they have been working on ?
I have no probs with drivers.
X is for Xtremiest!
Very exciting stuff!
Now we need Fury cards thread in video section.
For Gamers it looks like Win10/DX12 will be a must. The ability to use multiple GPUs, even from different vendors, without ugly hacks like SLI and Crossfire alone makes DX12 more interesting.
Looking forward to release, and G3D benchies
Exactly, so those drivers are going to have to be perfect from day 1.
and ofc being able to stack each cards VRAM so 2 x Fury X = 8 GB VRAM
..apart from AMD claiming 4GB is enough with Their improvements for 4k resolutions.
What are you dreaming about here? Do you think that nVidia will allow you to use their GPU if AMD's present in system?
Do you think you'll get HW accelerated PhysX/Gameworks via CUDA from nVidia card if you have AMD there?
You guys realize the cross vendor multi-GPU + memory pooling is all application specific right? I highly doubt most developers are going to spend their time getting that stuff working + carrying it forward with newer GPU launches.
Hopefully. Win/Win for Nvidia and Us gamers ?
edit : all they have to do is allow a GPU to be dedicated to PhysX/Cuda or whatever (not sure gameworks would be possible).
I would have nVidia card for PhysX long time ago if they did not intentionally break it.
Edit: And I am not easily persuaded. And even if they enable it again in W10, I will not trust them enough to get GPU which they may disable 6 months later.
I had one ready that is now a spare, until I noticed it was broken.
AMD are back!, got to hold my hands up and apologise for writing them off.
Stunning cards, Fury X incoming!
That Nano, just wow!
From what I see from all the buzz that's been going around from early rumours to Computex to bench leaks:
The R9 Fury X beats the 980ti
R9 Fury (without X) weaker than 980ti (The one that the board partners at Computex has been hinting not as powerful as the 980ti) but beats the 980
The R9 390X slower than 980 but faster than 970
The R9 390 maybe on par with 970
But that's just my two cents guys no offense or anything, I'm a peace loving human being.
I sure do hope this is all true because I really want me some of that HBM tech!
Wonder what a waterblocked Nano could do ?
edit : might not have the vrm's...
Thing is it is 99.9% same silicon as Fury X, it is binning and running bit lower clocks and voltages to gain efficiency boost.
And those efficient GPUs are not that great overclockers. But Notebooks today are running even 125W nVidia GPUs, so I can see this inside in time.
Doesn't matter to be who is ahead as long as the gap is small and the pricing is good. The Nano might be cool in a "Steambox" sort of computer. depending on power draw.
BTW. Anyone catch the size of the power cable on Project Quantum. Must be a huge brick stashed somewhere there.
If the Nano is 290X performance at a lower Wattage, that's the card for me!
