[TE] AMD denies graphics card rumours: We will have cards out this year - Page 4

post #31 of 161
I'm hoping for a "battle of the titans" so to speak. AMD's gonna have a tough time keeping up if any of the rumors about Titan are true.

If AMD respond, its gonna be the biggest and most powerhungry single GPU the world have ever seen. It will be 600mm^2++ die and the power consumption won`t be pretty

7970 is 25% bigger than GTX 680. So when Titan is 505mm^2, AMD have to build a 630mm^2 GPU. Is that even possible? rolleyes.gif

Make up your mind AMD!! rolleyes.gif, i keep waiting on the new cards to buy myself a cheaper 7950 biggrin.gif, fans on my MSI 6950 Twin Frozr II are giving me HUGE problems, so i kind of have an excuse to upgrade thumb.gif

Ignore this guy, he'd try to convince you to buy a $600 630 if nv offered it, to help his precious NVidia.

The biggest and most powerhungry single GPU was the 480, and the 580 after that.

25% bigger and sometimes over 100% better at compute, not to mention how it can annihilate the 680 at high and surround resolutions.
Did you forget Fermi and the huge die sizes just beat AMD cards by 5-10% ?
The GTX 680 sucks at compute which explains the sacrifices at the die size.
Expect GTX 680 die size to be larger if it has more bus and more compute power at the same time.

I've been thinking about upgrading my GPU, and the AMD bundle they have going right now sure had me looking for just the right deal. But Something kept telling "Just wait a little bit..." Well, I'm going to wait it out. I think we'll (those waiting for AMD) will be pleasantly surprised with the next generation.

Umm, Im no expert on such things but the 580 was more efficient than the 480. Would that leave the 480 still in the most power hungry? Just my thought on that lol

Well hopefully we can use the Titan release as an indicator for other things to come in the future

I wouldn't be shocked per se.

Going from 6970 to 7970 was a huge jump. Max OC vs. max OC, I'm doubling my performance now with the 7970. And while it was expensive, it wasn't anywhere close to twice the price of the previous flagship card like Titan will be.

I don't care at all if they don't have the fastest single GPU, AMD is pretty comfortable winning in price/performance like they seem to do every generation.

The GTX 580 uses slightly less power due to the smaller die and lower transistor count.
GTX 480 is still one of the most power hungry cards ever made.

Yes that was the point I was trying to make. The poster I quoted said the 580 replaced the 480 as the most power hungry card, which is backwards logic

I would likely still get 580 SLI for myself just because I like the ability to be true single slot card with a water block, I like having smaller systems most of the time while still maximizing my ability to things with the left over slots. That is merely a personal preference though and has little to do with the topic at hand
