    The price could also hit 2.9 after taxes knowing Oligarch Jensen. RIP your wallets bros, I'm going to pass on this upcoming gen, I can wait for some modicum of sanity to return to the market after the AI bubble bursts.

    That's nice, but i'm just here for the comments.

    Looking forward to actual specs.

    Hopefully a good jump from previous gen :)

    Lets hype the 5090 who cares about the rest of the series. Future of nvidia graphics.

    Its a good thing we have AMD and Intel.

    Relax, eventually it will all be consoles and everyone will be equal.

    This current injustice and lack of equality will eventually just be a fading memory.

    And we can all thank AI for that.

    I'm glad we have NVIDIA still, as they offer features for older games that Intel and AMD don't have.

    Such as Hybrid Sampling, Sparse Grid Super Sampling and Ordered Grid Super Sampling.

    You will need to rely on Nvidia for high end cards though since AMD will not release them.

    It was crypto, then AI, there will be another bubble along soon enough.
    NV times its releases to coincide with maximum bubblidge.

    I mean the 3090 was $1500 before the AI bubble and was basically always out of stock. I think Nvidia saw that people are willing to spend that much on a GPU and that's the new pricepoint, bubble or no bubble.

    Probably one of the only companies innovating. I feel like ever since G-Sync, AMD has just been creating slightly more open alternatives to all of Nvidia's technologies... would any of them have come if not for Nvidia? Don't think so.

    Prices were fairly stable and reasonable for quite a few generations, then the 2080Ti hit the shelves and most thought prices had reached some kind of maximum, then another crazy jump with the 3090+ cards and then obviously the 4090 (at least it offered a huge performance jump unlike the 3000 series). Has the limit finally been reached? One would hope so for the third time.

    That`s a very high base clock. If true, the peformance of those things are going to be insane, a perfect match for their insane prices...

    AMD and Intel need to start making something special to counter Nvidia, otherwise...

    So that kind of clock means a huge fat cooler and lots of power. More inefficiency as usual in the pc space. Still amazed at what an iPhone can pull off these days off a battery in comparison to a pc. Something needs to change. I'm sure it will be the fastest card ever and have lots of buzzwords on the box to sell everyone on how great it is. I'm just wondering what games really NEED this right now. Gaming is kind of stagnant, releases are fewer and far between and if dlss 3 is used properly it seems to be good enough. It's like we are at a point this gen cycle where buying one is just to say you have one more than needing one. This happens every console cycle. PC gets to a point where the cards surpass consoles by so much it's silly upgrading. But to each his own. Maybe some UE5 games will prove me wrong if they ever make it out.

    I totally agree - Nvidia is really the only one actually shaking things up. Granted, AMD is still trying to catch up getting optimal performance and stability without any bells and whistles, let alone any of their open alternatives starting from G-sync to DLSS.
    AMD going with open standards helps them in a few ways. First and most importantly, it means they can put as little of their own effort in as possible, since others have the potential to pick up the slack. They also know they have an inferior product so the only way they'll really get anywhere is if they make it as unrestrictive to implement as possible, to the point where competition can also use it. Even if Nvidia uses AMD's own technology better, the fact that it isn't vendor locked means the feature isn't making consumers feel like they're missing out if they don't go with Nvidia.

    With Intel entering the GPU market, AMD might have an easier time. Intel also likes to get involved in open standards, so they and AMD may indirectly collaborate toward refining a technology that competes with Nvidia's. AMD's long-term experience mixed with Intel's deep pockets could yield a decent product. Kinda reminds me of modern Lamborghini - you take Italian style mixed with German engineering and you get a pretty cool car.

    I can't imagine what the power draw and heat output is going to be though. Remember: power consumption doesn't scale linearly with clock speeds.

    absolutely right.
    small wonder Intel & AMD have started to focus on low power (relatively) gpu designs. of course AMD was the least efficient (a reversal from the cpu space) so they had damn well better look into it.

    but your greater point is brought home by RDNA 4... and IF the N48 does offer 7900xt/x performance w/ better RT in the upper mainstream price range, then AMD was indeed very wise in keeping the tens of millions of dollars required for high end gpu development (from design to tape-out, plus wafer allocation) for their Instinct series which is very very backlogged.

    the fact is despite all of our enthusiasm, the 5090 isn't really destined for the desktops of gamers. it will end up primarily for pro/am rendering. or in other words, a gpu equivalent of Threadripper - where although it's expensive it's far less than the Enterprise versions. and yes, despite Nvidia's best attempts at "crippling" the 5090, it will also be used by some for A.I.

    I agree with you here. As much crap as AMD is getting for avoiding high end, it's not necessary. This is the perfect time to do what they're doing. Like I said before, games are slower to come out. They take longer to make, they cost more money, and the industry is feeling it right now. It will be at least a year, maybe 2 before we really start to see the games promised that everyone wants (Fable, Gears Prequel, etc). So why make a high-end card, spend all that money making it when it's not really a necessity? You can focus on becoming more efficient and providing a better high end series with the next set of cards. I'm all for what AMD is doing here, even if it doesn't work, the attempt is appreciated since no one else is bothering.

    60% higher rasterization and 80% higher RT perf than 4090 would be a great start,

    Nvidia should get more game developers to implement path tracing into their engine (like Capcom RE Engine), then the world shall know path tracing :D

    Literally had the same thought when I read the title.
