    Likely on the 26th of April AMD will release its Radeon Duo Pro, a dual-Fiji GPU based card. Some slides have leaked onto the web, mostly showing the same stuff what was presented at the launch....

    Eh, depends on the market.

    The largest rumored Polaris chip (Polaris 10/480x) is about equivalent to a 390x, not a Fury X. So even if you Xfired them, they'd still fall short of the Pro Duo performance, but they'd be much, much cheaper. For consumers that might be a big deal, but for someone using it to do number crunching, the price may not be as much of a concern.

    I actually expect we will see both a dual Polaris and a dual Pascal GPU either at launch or shortly after.

    Given by the firestrike ultra score the p10 is on par with the 980ti

    You mean this?

    "The Polaris 10 GPU is said to have 3DMark Firestrike Ultra performance around 4000 points which is about what a Radeon R9 Fury X and GeForce GTX 980 Ti score. By 4000 points, we don’t mean exactly 4000 but it’s actually a bit less than that."

    I'm not sure that's a given, but regardless, even if it's true, it makes the Pro Duo an even worse release.

    This card is nothing more that a vr card and a pro card.. You can game on it but it is really only for vr. one gpu per eye kind of deal

    It would have to be a pro or vr system that really needed an upgrade now and couldn't handle Xfire because it seems that 2 polaris cards would be faster and use less power.

    I can somehow believe SP/TMUs/ROPs counts. But GPU clock, that's what can put it even to Fury X level.

    But even then Pro Duo is not too late. Because its total performance will not be matched by single GPU card. And they have good cooling for it too :)

    Well, for sure early will have been better, but the card is a bit different of what we are used to see with dual gpu's. The gpu can work with FirePro drivers and have to rely on compliance tests for FirePro. ( even the cooler is something you will never see on the market as it have been certified for the Professional market with test as the 50/50/50 ( who concern life of the units ).

    Look like it is more aimed at developpers for VR ( who crually need it ..,some allready propose a 5+1 so 11GPU's system ( ).

    It's pretty crazy that it's only 21w more than a 980Ti yet 60+% more performance (at 4K) in Heaven.

    And yes, I understand everything that entails.

    holy ...

    on one hand this was expectable on the other hand seeing it black on white makes it really look impressive.

    "The Witcher 3 | Setting_Ultra | Hairworks-Off |"
    gives me a chuckle... i mean the discredit in this one is big.
    i guess its like, switch hairworks on and you get equal FPS :bugeye:

    Well atleast on AMD you can set 2/4 or 8x tessellation to fix it for nVidia your only option is to replace or and another GPU. The performance hit is big on both cards although worse on AMD unless you limit tessellation, in which case you can control the looks to performance Nvidia users only have the option to turn it off.

    what i meant is:
    if you enable nvidia-hairworks the fps difference between the radeon pro and the 980ti would maybe be at 0.
    so turning it off for a benchmark is a way to make it obvious that the setting is distorting realistic/significant results.

    Then why benchmark the game, it's a 1500 dollar card, a halo product. Hairworks is eyecandy, eyecandy that people who spend 1500 dollars on a card probably wants. Sorta the reason to include 4k.

    Maybe some time will help you understand the proportionality of the factors that you juxtapose in opposition.
