[Tech] HD 8000 Series Compatibility on Accelero Coolers

post #1 of 22

Quote:
Not too long ago, Arctic leaked a bucket list socket LGA1150 processors which aren't due for another five months. [...] Either Arctic is riding on the assumption that the mount hole spacing of those GPUs won't change from current HD 7000 series, or that it's catering to the various HD 8000 series desktop graphics cards in circulation by OEM desktop PCs, which are rebrands of HD 7000 series parts.

What a lame way to attract attention on your products.

Well this also raises the frightening possibility that the 8970 is indeed a rebrand of the 7970

AMD isn't dumb enough to release a rebrand to compete with the 780. I don't get why people are worried about this stuff.

They might rebrand for laptop GPUs but not the high end gaming desktop market.

Umm... there's no way in hell this is happening.

AMD is already loosing money hand over fist, so why would they do that?

I find it funny that Amd is having a competion issue with Intel and Nvida as they own both the Cpu and graphic gpu they should have the comp licked, but i think they are having more issues in the top end market as you find the gamers out there switching to the Nvida brand and cpu going intel i know i have thoght about it. I am going to stick with amd they have always offered a good product and at lower prices and that may be the market they are going for. I think that Amd has alot more to offer and is sitting on something great they are just waiting to get all the tweaks out with the realse of the Nvida 690 which from what i have seen is a great performer and at a cost of 1000USD. Amd might be letting he hype go down and then put out a response in there next card but that is the way the business has seemed to have gone for years now and we as the gamers get a choice we all get what we want and like what we like.

Might be indeed frown.gif

I hope not. Why would they delay that much? Does not make sense to me.

Its a Multi-Billion dollar industry and competition is very very stiff. AMD has made some increadibly stupid moves these past few years and that's why they are behind. Last year there was head line after head line about AMD blunders and high ranking execs getting booted.

Not to mention FX-8350 and HD7970 have larger die size than 3570K/3770K and GTX680, plus AMD is sell both at below competitor's price(CPU wise they had too), that is not good for AMD in term of profit.
