Early unavailability would make such a high end card a collectors item, potentially making speculants buying them more than regular consumers...
Killer app cannot target hardcore gamers. So it was just another game running fast enough. Plus Nvidia and Rendition were unlikely to use miniGL...
How could miniGL kill Talisman?
Where is this fetish for fully enabled chips coming from?
:runaway::runaway: Talisman, released 1998:runaway::runaway:
Nvidia has top to bottom 12_1 products. AMD only Vega.
One would think this thread will be about video games, but instead we have a showcase of classical arts- images and music. Telling.
I see it the same Pony, but this should be added: unlike Apple products, some faulty graphics chips can be salvaged in cut-down products.
True, but compared to newer GeForces (even first Maxwell) they are too far behind.
Looks to me like drivers of Kepler cards were not optimized for the game.
And even that article concludes contrary to your statement of no improvements.
Clocks are part of it. However there are other aspects, e.g. Polaris has to do with a lot smaller memory bandwidth.
We must be watching different results then. Could you for example explain how can Polaris perform at level of Hawaii?
Is proper hardware journalism going extinct like proper content creating journalism?
I am confused. Is the nature of GF deal such that die size is irrelevant? Vega is lardass just because they cannot save money?
I am quite sure it would beat even 580 in newer games.
If a console is cheap, the creator expects to make money on games. One can imagine Microsoft is working hard on securing XBO from mining.
Graphics accelerators in cartridges were also mindblowingly wasteful.
No it is clearly not. Only the honesty of admitting moral failure can be appreciated.
Looks like AMD's "poor DX11 performance" ended in 2016.
If you are still after objective analysis you ought to leave product pricing out.
Is that going to change anything? It is as big as GP102 but currently performs like GP104 with ~100 Watt higher consumption.
I would feel thankful for the data.
Blockchains are spreading with or without cryptos. But I have ask, is there no smarter solution than such escalation of difficulty draining...
Those panels would power something else otherwise, mining really is needless ecological drain.
Right, different SKUs in different environments can run their chips with different delta to power sweet spot.
This Game Sessions thing is creepy. Nevermind the AMD logo and interruptions for advertisment in a free game, but it reads my disk all the time.
I can't believe there isn't bigger legislative push against mining. Could there be more dangerous way of creating a currency?
This confirms 48 ROPs. Either they are "uber" or great efficiency leap happened.
I don't think this was implied in any way.
NFS take itself rather seriously, falling for the car porn and serious world.
I think Errant Signal...
Is there is third gen GCN chip fiting the specification of 530? And I bet 540 will perform better than 550, oh well, OEM wonderland.
It is strangely calm here considering R5 got released.
Anandtech with updated methodology (timeframes)...
I am afraid there will inevitably be only more young people coming with "tech" videos. Perhaps some limitation in architecture threads would be...
The original games were quite an achievement, with large formations rolling over big maps, yet somehow felt lot smoother than Age of Empires II....
It is another AAA experience, right?
Kind of a bummer. Does it make sense for potential buyer of ~$150 CPU to wait for true quad core? So far one can hope they will be cheaper,...
Ignoring clocks again?
I am afraid Vega might have even more changes muddling the comparison.
Now I am sold.
However, these gains are still underwhelming compared to what Polaris promised. Would it be possible to run the test with various...
1. I agree, but for different reasons - it drops more than 390X, per clock by 3 %. I am still hesitating to draw conclusions from such a small...
That is not how you deal with bottlenecks. 390 can have a higher drop because without tesselation it can put its wider parts into use. 480 leading...
I still do not see anything able to survive clock normalization.
Can you remind me of such benchmarks?
Not really. First Ti was a die shrink, but Geforce3 Ti was two SKUs above and below original and recently Ti was used to mark interesting...
Only in case of bad benchmarks practices, which can invalidate other metrics as well. I found results of 20 years old cards very consistent.
These articles are just stating the obvious, we knew DX11 is going to coexist alongside DX12.
Indeed. I cannot be bothered to consider the other sense in our context, because that should be avoided by proper benchmark selections and methods.
Using your reasoning one could say something more: FPS >> minumum FPS >> frametimes
Damn outliers, what do they have to do with user experience?
