An Amd GPU with less compute and more gaming power

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I put my question here in another thread - So...where's the 700 series news - but I thought it would be nice to hear your views on this as a separate thread

Getting confused here - isn't the titan suppose to be a bit of a mongrel, crossbreed, lots of gaming and compute power as the the 680 were more streamlined for gaming?

If so why cant they go on that game plan again? Make the 780 cheaper with 4gig instead of 6 = reasonable thumb.gif
And as nvidia did that with the gtx680's - why doesnt amd make a great gaming card on that basis?

Do you understand what I mean ?

Nope? Didn't think so biggrin.gif


Could amd build a card on the same basis as the gtx 680 = less compute less heat and wattage and give more gaming power and less compute?

Titan is basically a fully fledged Tesla as a gaming GPU...
Higher TDP and more exotic cost...
These things are what Nvidia wanted to change with Kepler as "gaming cards" but they then decided to release the behemoth, reminds me of the old GTX 480, just none of the cons.

AMD/ATI has been doing great with their gaming performance from the beginning of 3D Graphics.
They had always been the winner in term of performance, price and power efficiency over Nvidia and other graphics chip companies.
But they had been always losing to Nvidia in Compute Processing, so I think they may want to make a difference.
At first, they want to vaporize Nvidia cards or at least play equally with Nvidia on server/cloud computing first, then the general market later.
HD 7900's aren't half bad in games though. tongue.gif

Power efficiency? I don't know about times past, but not anymore. Not by a long shot.

I am a second hand English speaker and have been learning it for less than 3 years, but I am still able to understand the difference btw "had been" and "has been". tongue.gif
