yes it does
Yeah oke, you guys must feel like badass 1337 gamers for not caring..
The display port only is the only thing holding me off from buying this card I know DP is supposed to be mainstream now but I have yet to see or even know someone with a screen that actually has one.
If that's the only reason holding you back from buying a new gpu you might as well get a 980ti and be done with it.
I switch to my Intel 4600, then overclock it 1150MHz ->1700MHz and run my games 60fps capped no-vsync <--- pure-smooth, bad ass gaming, right there :banana:
Maybe only for the reference cards. Hopefully AMDs board partners will offer dvi inputs.
Adapters work. They're not cheap though, making the whole new line of AMD cards about $60 more expensive. Not cool AMD.
Active Adapters have their limits, 1080p and 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.
Not cool if you have a dual-dvi only monitor at higher resolution, higher hertz or both.
face-palm for sheer stupidity
Why exactly is his post stupid?
I doubt these benchmarks are true, as mentioned everything reeks of theoretical performance rather than real world performance.
^ why would they not be true redemption..
Adapters might not work 100%, checked a few like Mineria said, lots of em only support 1080p, (lol) ...
So... getting an adapter is not an option.
If AMD custom cards don't come with DVI-D then I'll have to go with nvidia unfortunately, but that sucks because nvidias cards are always more expensive.
took off neweggg for DP to dual dvid adapter from visiontek for 30 bucks
VisionTek Active DisplayPort™ to Dual Link DVI converter is a new generation DisplayPort™ to Active Dual Link DVI converter that receives both video and audio streams from an upstream DisplayPort Source link and converts to a Dual Link DVI output. The DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual-Link adapter lets you connect your DisplayPort video source (Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, etc.) to any DVI-D display, eliminating the expense of having to upgrade to a DisplayPort-capable monitor. The DisplayPort adapter offers an active conversion and easy connectivity directly without any external power input and is able to handle full dual-link resolutions (up to 2560x1600). Use it to mirror your display to another monitor, or extend your desktop to increase your workspace.
Hmm... ok, but not sure about the hertz there, does it support more than 60hz+ ?
does not specify .. i wondered the same but even though i can oc to 100hz personally i do not see a diff on my qnix
Cool for AMD, but they wont return in my PC after the 5970 fiasco i had for 9 months.
Using DisplayPort for 2,5 years now.
Thats cool that your one (1) experience didn't have any issues, that doesn't mean it's not a problem
I know someone with an original Xbox 360, still working today, no red ring of death, should that mean that issue is non-existent?
There's adapters out there that can go way above that limit. You can go as high as 1440p/100hz, give or take, with these, if you're willing to tighten your timings (they can go up to a pixel clock of 400mhz, roughly). Problem is, they're not cheap. That's what I was referring to. Adding $80 on top of the card price for an adapter is not cool, it's a bad move from AMD and it's the sole reason I'm not even considering the Fury X as a potential upgrade.
No, but we have mounds of proof of RROD, including Microsoft extending the warranty a couple years, and a 1 billion dollar write-off on their earnings to cover the repairs.
For AMD we have...some anecdotal stories from random people.
