Thats why we need to have a choise to be what we want.
nope, we just need to stop being whinebags and play the game in the artistic vision it was designed with,
So? Blood Rayne forced you too and tomb raider all of em some games have a set hero to play with... Since always....
New Doom has Doom-girl. Not that I care. If main character of mindless slaughter game is male, all women playing take upon that role.
No big deal. Actually it can make for some funny moments.
As Venix stated. Those games which do character justice end up being great.
Is there any credibility to this rumor? It throws all the <$250 pricing out of wack when they just launched the 1650, 1660 and 1660Ti. I don't believe this rumor at all, especially when Navi is barely even competitive.
It's probably going to end up being new drivers with features. Maybe a new control panel?
Do you really feel like playing Larry Croft instead of Lara Croft? I doubt it .
So, what is actually "Super" here? Is there hint on when nVidia makes official announcement on what they meant by it?
They keep rather silent.
Take with salt.
EXCLUSIVE: NVIDIA’s SUPER GPUs, Unleashing Monsters
Super Ti will do me, if true
JESUZH KHRIST ¹1111111
puts the lotion in the AMDs basket
- NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER =/= RTX 2080 Ti non-OC Unlocked
- 11GB VRAM
- ~Vanilla RTX 2080 Price
So by the looks of this leak, we can expect a RTX2080 Ti for the price of the current RTX2080.
Not really appealing to be honest this should have been the RTX2080 Ti price from the start, next year is new gen from both NVIDIA and Intel, and likely new Navi gen too.
I guess i'll stick with the GTX1080 for another year, since i expect Intel to push NVIDIA as it seems AMD keeps failing to do so (sadly), only when there is good competition i expect actual good performance for the price asked.
Even the RTX2080 Ti isn't very good for 3440x1440 for 100FPS, i just can't stand 60FPS anymore and ultrawide 1440p makes my GTX1080 struggle even at 60FPS
At least the name is super dumb.
I'm visibly upset...
I'm so angry rn! Totally wasted money, fuuuu!
Holy crap. If true this is going to turn the GPU market upside down!
We already got that game
So, if we are to believe this.
2080TiS Whole new tape-out. Proportionally stronger than new 2080S?
2080S (based on 2080Ti w/ 3072CCs). Cut down by 30%
2070S (based on 2080 w/ 2560CCs)
And nVidia made whole new tape-out just to place 2070TiS in between them.
Then 2060S (based on 2070 w/ 2176CCs) like what? 2070=2080.
Adding existing 2060 just for laughs w/ 1920CCs.
- - - -
And then old ones are to be phased out? Do I read it correctly?
Full 2080 is discontinued (2944 CCs) and sold as 2560 CCs for even lower profit and even more castrated version w/ 2176 CCs going into 2060. Cut down by 26%.
2060 is just going to be removed.
- - - -
Should be noted that remaining GPUs are still big 18.6B transistors and 13.6B transistors chips. And their manufacturing cost is not exactly small to just throw 26~30% of CUs to garbage.
And what kind of sense is in making new silicon fitting between 2560CCs and 3072CCs?
Honestly, to believe this is like believing that Green took page from old Blue's book trying to damage AMD by damaging itself.
But nVidia is not stupid, they know that with Zen 2 release AMD does not need that much money from GPUs. And that AMD has one graphics chip out there. (While nVidia has 3 chips + 2 New ones.)
Anyone can do sanity checks on those things. While AMD invested 4 years into Navi, they are going to sell one 10.3B chip. Going just above 2070 with worse performance per watt and bit better performance per $. Why would nVidia destroy their lineup. (Including GPUs above 5700 XT) and invested into making 2 new GPUs where one makes no sense as it is too close to other GPUs and another is to merely outperform their own top dog which was not endangered anyway.
And on top of that AMD has guaranteed sales of both new GPU and CPU technologies into consoles
= = = =
This looks as classical wtftech as much as those 3 Navi chips with like 8 variants.
Their description has nVidia bleeding money everywhere while AMD does not have to do a thing to be competitive. But they believe in price war.
Well July is going to be an exciting month.
Not sure why they would release a super 2080 Ti with nothing out there that even competes with the regular one. AMD doesnt have a tier in that performance segment nor will have any time soon. The 2060 looks like it will get the biggest upgrade if its going with 8gb vram. Because that means it should also get a 256-bit bus over the 192-bit one. Since the 2060 (TU106) is basically a 2070 (TU106) with a couple mem controllers disabled. Wonder what it will sell for, because it has the potential to be a big spoiler in its tier vs AMD.
I'll wait for Ampere and the 3080 Ti. At least 30% more compute performance and double or triple the RT performance, which in effect will make RTX "free."
They could literally double the RT cores right now and call it "Super" because RTX would become nearly free.
"Super" will be one of the following...
* Faster memory 10-15% better performance
* Double RT cores for almost "free" RTX
* Ampere architecture (unlikely)
The heavy lifting is still performed on the shader engine, it makes no sense that the heaviest compute load in the history of graphics needed only a 22% increase in die area. This guy has explained it a few times: "Turing has *zero* ray tracing 'units'- all calculations on Turing are done on exactly the same shader ALUs used for all shader operations- which is why it was trivial for nvidia to add ray extensions to Pascal. What Turing does have is ASIC circuits that better link geometry data variables to the shader machine code system, filling in the variables in the shader algorithm faster"
