[Chiphel} New specs of Radeon HD8000 leaked - Page 39

post #381 of 465
I expect 549$ = 600$ and more performance or on par with 780.. But beating 780 with overclocking.

I can show you a long list of those people, myself included.

I wonder how many people have dumped their SLI rigs for Crossfire? I mean, it makes perfect sense. Why would someone buy stock GTX 780 SLI for $1300 dollars, when they could have three wonderful and cheap 7950s for $750 new after rebates and discounts and a ton of free games?

I wonder why that's not happening?

oh wait... but then I'd want water-blocks for all the heat to minimize thermal throttling. gotta fix that stuttering. They say Tri-fire fixes all the stuttering, but then there's all that heat. Means new water-cooling, radiators, CPU, GPU blocks and such, bigger case with extended motherboard because I need to use hacks to run my discreet NV PPU for advanced physx. Oh gotta have a superior case. With lots of fans to fit all this stuff in and keep it cool. Maybe gotta squeeze a sound card in there somewhere somehow. oh and did i say lots of fans? No worries... it only cost little bit more for tri-Fire. So much cheaper and better.thumb.gif


I actually was selling a 670 on ebay. I was chatting with a prospective buyer... negotiating a price. I told him, "you know what, in all honesty, they are 7950s out there for under 300 with Free Crysis and Bioshock Infinite. With overclocking, it's better than a 670 with more vram.. If I were you, I'd go for one of those." He eventually used my BIN price which was 60 bucks higher than the cheapest 7950, for a used, stock GTX 670 with no free games and I got most of my money back. Made absolutely no sense. He must have been drinking that NV cool-aid. confused.gif

It means Nvidia owners use the Driver / stuttering thing as Ammo and it is all they talk about.

No where near the amount of the people who own the cards talk about it.

Almost all issues can be fixed if a person takes the time to do so.

And is a small amount of people that suffer from it.

Agreed. Driver issues happen on both sides.

Has it ever occurred to you. that it's not "Ammo" to be used against you? Maybe... just maybe... that is just truly how users feel about an experience they've had with their hardware?

It is Nvidia Ammo to use Vs the amd cards cause it is all they got.

Ive been around along time and been on boths sides of the fence.

It was even a program made by Nvidia used to test it...

Just like ammo Vs Nvidia

1. over priced

2 lack luster performance

3 voltage locked

4 dead weight gpus they cannot pay for themselves.

For certain games like iRacing Nvidia is still better than AMD when it comes to support for Multiple GPUs. That being said I've had issues with drivers from both companies.

New details have come to light regarding the flagship HD 9970 part from AMD.

Some new information has been leaked regarding AMD's HD 9970 GPU, the flagship part of the Volcanic Island series. According to Softpedia, the lineup of 9000-series GPUs will still launch this year.

The information revealed is that the Volcanic Islands GPUs will be baked on a 20 nm lithography and be designed to have Gate-Last transistors.

Specifications for the HD 9970 include 4096 stream processors, four geometry engines, 256 TMUs, 16 serial processing units, and 64 ROPs. Memory will be driven through a 512-bit memory bus, and GDDR5 memory.

While there has been no official word, it appears that the HD 8000 series GPUs will be skipped entirely for desktops.

2x7970 on 1 gpu XD

oh oh

These Companies are Nickel and Diming us. We need to flip them the Bird and just wait for them to put the prices at the correct format like the previous generations. Wait for 9000 series and 800 series.
