Discussion in 'Videocards - NVIDIA GeForce' started by Netherwind, Aug 20, 2018.
NVIDIA confirmed that the reviews will go online 14/9.
Came across this on Pierre Terdiman's blog which I found interesting, thought I'd share it:
First half is about the false claims people have been bringing up about PhysX since the new cards have come out, second half is about the lack of knowledge with raytracing.
What the f***?
Where is your evidence for this? You don't have a shred of it and you obviously do not understand how fabrication processes and wafer yields work. There is nothing magical whatsoever about what Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Qualcomm, or Samsung are building. It's not alien technology. There are real issues that need to be dealt with the further we slim down those transistors. Go learn about these issues before whipping out baseless conspiracy theories.
What IS your point from all this rambling.
Seems 7nm Ampere will be out in 2020. They’re saying 34% more performance and 65% less power.
Still 2 years off though... RTX on that will be a killer, especially if they speed it up another 6X for Ampere.
All rumors though...but makes perfect sense.
You're one of the more knowledgeable posters on this forum and I have been reading your posts, learning from yoru posts, and conversing with you since I had my HD4870 Crossifre a good while a go, but if you do not clearly see the 2080 is a mid range card (no, no of course it's not marketed that way....) then I can not help you man, or if I could, this is a dead end vs people who don't even WANT to know the real truth so, I am going to get on with my relaxing Sunday morning.
In the end... it's all moot, anyway.
I mean, I could pay £400 now, and get PRETTY MUCH the same performance as when I paid £400... two years ago.
This is hideous.
If 7nm AMD GPU will really push 20tflops at the end of 2018 as leaks suggest, then maybe Nv will speed up ampere launch because I think 20tflops GPU from AMD will crush 2080ti very easily
tflops do not correlated to fps, or have people totally forgotten all those years of radeons with high numbers and low gaming performance....
Yup, he talks alot of sense imo, although it doesn't change the fact they are still ridiculously expensive!
How about you explain why the 2080 is suddenly a midrange card?
Nvidia's statement of 1 gigaray/s for GP102 was recently confirmed using the fallback method (since DXR is not supported in current drivers).
Hopefully reviewers use this test on AMD and Nvidia cards to arrive at gigarays per second results.
Thanks for @Voxilla for running the test.
On the same architecture more tflops equals more fps. But of course here we are talking about different architectures (AMD vs GPU architecture differences), and AMD tflops real performance is not equivalent to Nv tflops. For example AMD 5870 had 2x more tflops compared to Nv GTX 480, yet both cards were comparable performance wise. But that was many years ago and since then AMD improved their tflops performance a lot, and that gap is very close currently. 20 tflops and even better architecture will make AMD GPU extremely fast, and maybe that's why Nv is rushing with 2080ti because they know 2080ti will be not performance king for long (normaly they would just release GTX 2080, but not 2080ti at the same time).
2080Ti OC for nV Hype Train (every FE is an OC'ed GPU)
Underwhelming if true, but hardly surprising...
Where does it say OC?
Vega Instinct for Servers has nothing to do with desktop GPU's and this is a 400 watt part according to AMD.
Lol, fake. No link and no supporting drivers yet.
Don't expect consumer 7nm GPUs before 2020..
I like the points they make, in the end, if AMD delivers something that can run games in 4k at 80-100fps, at a fraction of Turing cost, it will be hugely popular. I definitely will go for performance over ray tracing.
Unless Nvidia will instantly counter AMD's release with the release of their own non-ray tracing cards. GTX 2000 series still can happen.
