New AMD/Nvidia Cards

Postby Quietman » Wed Jun 03, 2015 7:39 am

They've just put a teaser up at http://experience.amd.com/itscoming

Looks likely to be the 390X everyone has already seen leaked benchmarks for - Official announcement on 16/06/2015

Meanwhile NVidia have announced their 980 Ti card, using a cut down Titan X chip and boasting 6Gb of RAM.

Anything below the 390X is a rebrand of a rebrand of the Tahiti cores (7970 and upwards). And also that the 390X is slower than the 980 TI by some leaked info from the event. And they were going to go with a $850 release price. Why does AMD want to fuck it up so badly.
I mean yea it's all still speculation till the reveal but sheesh. I just want a damn good upgrade card!

Me also, I'm currently looking at the 980Ti, especially since it'll likely see a price cut on the announcement of AMD's card (by a bit at least). Definitely seems like AMD has dropped the ball on this :/

Especially now Asus have announced this bad boy:

Aren't the new ATi cards going to use their new stacked memory thing? So that should make them pretty decent compared to the last ones.

Only the 390X is using HBM Ram in the 300 series. The rest are using GDD5 Ram as before.

And info comes to light that even the 390X isn't using the HBM memory and is just the branded 290X you can buy now, not the Fiji chip. If you want the newer memory + GPU you have to look at the really badly named Fury line.

If you think Fury is a bad name for a graphics card line you haven't looked at many graphics card names ;)

Waiting for the Rage name to come back as well. But mm Golden sample is the only other named card that was ridiculous that springs to mind.

Why is fury bad but rage is good? :lol:

Nothing beats 3Dfx. It says everything you need to know about what this marvel of technology does in 4 letters. Now that's some voodoo.

Who gives a toss about the names? It's just a way to differentiate between ranges other than their model numbers.
