My wife would smack you with a broom/bat/poker/whateverisonhand for saying that. :banana:
I have a PS4 and and XBox One in my man cave, where my tower lives.....
Performance per cm^3 is something very few people care about. Much like how AMD fans always used to tout Performance/watt as to why it's better than a faster nVidia card. When that all changed, they had to find something new show the AMD card is better (that's not actual performance).
If I were you, I'd stick with the performance/$. That works a lot better than the other metrics i've seen.
For a second I thought I was in the Nvidia forum....:3eyes:
Your in the front page news where everybody posting might have differing opinions.
Nope your on the front page news section. FYI
Weird.....I linked through the AMD forum.....10 or so below the stickies.
I guess I was wrong.
Waiting for the "Hitler reacts to AMD Nano" video.
Man, that would be funny. :banana:
yea, in previous one about the fury X, he said something like "They better not f*ck up the Nano, it;s my only hope" something like that hahaha
I saw the video already, anybody that had anything to do with the nano was executed, needless to say they posted several hundred job openings today.
Mein fuhrer... we were not able to lower the cost below fury x and 980ti.
"Everyone with a GPU over 7 inches, get out."
I still remember a big full tower cases, big motherboards, floppy drives and HDD 5.25. Their size was not their advantage. Today, the only reason that our PC is so big (and mostly empty), is large GPU. It seems to me that the time of huge, cumbersome ATX cases is thing of the past. If I can have extremely efficient machine for playing games in 8-liter case, ATX becomes an anachronism. Of course, I understand that there are people loving anachronistic hardware, but it’s rather a hobby All these giant GPU simply become outdated.
Most gamers I talk to buy ATX cases for three reasons:
To have the option of running SLI/Crossfire.
So they can run big fans at low RPMs to keep their PC both cool and quiet.
Easy of working inside the case.
Once we get the cheap 10TB SSDs and 100TB HDDs, which are supposedly coming over the next few years, and GPUs get to the point where one card can run AAA games maxed out at UHD/60fps, I think the number of people who will continue to cling to ATX will be tiny. Certainly those who design builds for aesthetics will still want a big window filled with colored lights, but I think most people would be happy to have a smaller, cooler, quieter box that just does the job without drawing attention to its self. But we're not anywhere near there yet. With the reality of game performance being what it is, people wanting to push AAA games at Ultra details, in QHD or above and maintain a solid 60fps, are going to need multiple GPUs and lots of fans to dissipate the heat quietly for the time being.
these hardcore custom builders have always been a small part of the community. they make little impact in the overall scale of sales.
you'd be surprised out easy it is to get a ITX rig fully water cooled.
easier to hide a small box or have it blend into the background of other AV equipment than it is with a full tower or matx. no need to show off the epeen to friends and family that have no idea what that big case and the guts through the side panel window mean.
AMD has watched the popularity of small form factor PCs boom over the past few years. finally a top of the line card to fit inside was purpose designed.
where's NVidia's answer? did they even have a clue this was being developed by team red?
replaced my older FX-60 ATX with a pair of Haswell ITX rigs. I wont do ATX again. Build Log
NVidia fan but found the nano review an interesting read. look forward to whats coming in a couple years when I replace the i7 ITX rigs.
These cards have been out before the nano launch, at around 1/2 the price of a nano. There was no need for an nvidia response imo.
1) Fury X might gain low profit margin due to cooling system, so AMD transform the binned ones into Nano (thus targeting niche market trying to gain more profit)
2) Arguing power draw with Fury X with cost of electricity and cost of psu (same as nVidia owners usually use
3) If the demand is low than the price should be getting lower, no ?
Nano blows those cards away, except price. If you have the money, and wanted the smallest ITX build with the fastests FPS....why would someone choose one of those?
Makes no sense.
Plus the 3.5 = 4 thing......
Yeah well price wise you can buy 2 970 mini and blow that nano lead out of the water. The 970 also overclocks much better and the gap can be lessened there too.
