[Chiphel} New specs of Radeon HD8000 leaked - Page 13

post #121 of 465
If there is listed only one card in 8900 series, it got me thinking maybe their 8970 has disabled 4 CU and AMD has their plan to relese something like 8970 Ultra with all CU enabled 2560 SP and 160TMU to compete Titans. A couple of months ago, there were rumors metioned similar specs http://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/Details-Leak-AMDs-Sea-Islands-HD-8900-Series-Graphics-Cards

Sounds like BS... why use a 384-bit bus for 6 GB of VRAM?

Technology always advances, there'll always be something bigger, brighter, faster around the corner. What counts is what you can buy now

This.


I hear the new GTX 880 will blow away anything that AMD has out now too. Nevermind that it isn't even out yet, apparently some people seem to think that a video card that isn't released yet plays games and generates more PPD than a video card that is ACTUALLY out NOW. rolleyes.gif

Soooo what happened to "no new cards till the end of Q4"? The 8xxxs were always said to be OEM rebrands I thought?

Well this is good news, even tho I love my 670 I will probably be selling it at the end of the year and either get a 780 or a 8970, time will tell tho.

Is it just me, or does the 8950 seem to have worse specs than the 7950 in every way except memory clocks? 256 bit bus vs 384, 3.5 billion transistors vs 4.3 along with the same number of shaders and rops. I thought cards were supposed to get faster as time went on...Correct me if I'm mistaken somehow.

Unless your buying new videocards every 6-12months waiting for a 8970 would be the most logical thing. AMD cards are currently spot on with Frame Times using one card beating out Nvidia on many titles. CF should be fixed soon allowing AMD to have great drivers for the 8000 series.

If you can pay the same amount for the GTX780 to get titan performance then why not?

Personally Q3 would work out good for me as I'm going to buy all my new haswell gear first then get a new card/block. Hoping to see some good WCing OC.

Why not? 28nm is very mature as it is right now. It's possible to spin out such a chip. So using your statement Richland would be impossible to have the 10-15% gains? With less power consumption than A10-5800k (not that it had alot, it was surprisingly close to a i7-3770k in the first place) Now, GCN2.0 is alot more efficient and clocks alot higher than GCN1.0
The 7790 which is from GCN2.0 has just 40% more shaders than 7770, clocked higher at like 1.075GHz and has performance considerably much much above 7770 and uses not much more power. Alot less than 7850. But a 7850 will clock nearly 50% (than stock) more when OC'd just like 7950 would do so. I expect GCN2 to be very similar in OC'ing performance

It's called being overkill necessarily. Kepler doesn't scale well beyond trifire because of it's natively tiny bus. And also seems like AMD likes larger buses now. Yes it's more complex but when we begin to use 4k displays you will know why AMD wants to. Why design a series for trifire and quadfire if they will get bottlenecked by the memory bus? AMD knows what they are doing as they have done this mistake before but it wasn't needed then i guess.
384 bit bus + 6GB? FTW! But what's wrong with 384-bit buses? It's not like tahiti doesn't have one. When it comes to boosting memory bandwidth there's two options : Increase the bus width OR Make the IMC run super-fast and have to use highly binned chips

Whoever counts using transistor count is hopeless ... GCN 2 is alot more efficient. This is NOT GCN 1.0. Just like HD7790 is phenomenal for it's power draw (It's from GCN2.0) we can expect some surprises here and then. 384 > 256. But if the IMC can handle 1.75GHz GDDR5 then so be it, it doesn't need 384 then, i guess.
Maybe 256 is not accurate. I can't see AMD using a smaller bus for a newer card than the one it replaces. It just isn't logical

Core for core GCN2.0 is quite the bit faster and more efficient than GCN is thumb.gif

But then again nvidia did the same thing as AMD is doing now right? They released the gtx 480 later which then with the gtx 580 also beat the 6970.
With 100W more power consumption if that's what you want. Nvidia prices never go down and that's in the books of history

That's Volcanic Islands which is in 2014, i think. But definitely going to be the HD9000 series

thats why HD 8950 seems to be incorrect. 2048 sp, 3 geometry engines, 8 ACE 2.0, 48 ROP, 384 bit memory and 3GB GDDR5 at 1000 / 6000 Mhz for core / memory. about 15-20 % faster than HD 7970 Ghz. thats what i would expect to be the real specs based on HD 8970.

I hope AMD puts to rest speculations and gives the market much needed competition.

Although i really hope this lives up to its hype, I'm somewhat inclined to believe this leak. Lets take the 8970, which is claimed to be on par with titans performance yet to be priced LESS than the 780, let alone the titan. AMD is strapped for cash and by looking at the 7xxx gen and how their pricing worked out, its hugely unlikely AMD pricing a card on par with titans performance at $600, $750 - $800 seems much more realistic if not all guns blazing with 1K price tag. Unless 8970 is on par with the 780 in performance, this price is utterly unrealistic from a business standpoint with claims begin that its on par with the titan. Besides i doubt these specs hold any weight, you always get these kind of silly leaks when rival company rolls out their hardware regardless of team color.

If these speccs are true I think the card is a bad overclocker. Maybe stock it will look good versus other stock cards, but I guess you won't get more than 5-10% more performance of overclocking to the limits with these cards.

If I am wrong tho, these cards might be pretty decent
