Still, even if they just used the scheme I suggested above, and used the R3, R4, R5, R6 etc, they'd still have gfx card names for the next 7 years - plenty of time to work out what to call gfx cards from 2020 and beyond biggrin.gif

If only AMD used it instead of the weird and wacky naming scheme they are going to introduce frown.gif

Yeah, it's shorter and pretty straight forward.

I just thought of one problem with it though, AMD no longer releases cards on a yearly basis, so you may only get 3 or 4 gens at best out of that naming scheme.

To avoid confusion, AMD should've just kept the standard naming scheme we're already used to.

7970 --> R9-270X instead of 290X.

But now R9-270X --> 7770. headscratch.gif

Shouldn't a 7770 be R7-270X? or R5-270X even?

I'm referencing this:



In that new article that came out, it's saying R9 280X is the 7970 replacement. Maybe I'll just stop looking at VC's chart, don't think they understand the new naming scheme fully yet.

Oh, there's an updated chart:



It's still showing R9 for a 77xx and 78xx series. Maybe I don't get this new naming scheme yet. Or they need another update...

I'm not really understanding the difference between deciding what is R7 and what is R9... Even the updated chart doesn't make it clear.

Still nowhere as bad as their garbage CPU naming.

The FX naming scheme makes perfect sense. I don't see how it could even be simpler than it already is. DaveLT already explained it. The only thing that made no sense was the stupid naming of the Centurions.

Well when you have a customer and they are like what's the difference between the A4 A6 A8 A10 whatever, and you have your average Joe looking at it do you think he knows? I mean you would think an A4 is a quad maybe not, or an A8 would have 8 cores nope! Maybe only 2! Who know's! Why should buying a product be simple. It's like they should adopt a wacky waving inflatable tubeman for their mascot. Purchase a CPU that's name is based upon the integrated GPU but Offer a complete other line of processors that are strictly APU's. I feel sorry for Best Buy/ Microcenter employees trying to explain it. People are always more apt to purchase products that are easy to understand come on AMD.

I get your point. To be fair, every company has had really stupid naming schemes for their products. Remember Nvidia? When one card would have like 10 different versions? GeForce 8800 GT, GS, GTS, GTX, LE, SE, etc. I mean it was like "*** is this?"

Does i3 i5 i7 make sense either? Nope.
A4 A6 A8 A10 makes even better sense and it's not like they're going A10-6800 AND A4-6800. Between A4-6400k and A10-6800k it looks obvious even as the layman and for the record A8 processors have 4 CORES!

I feel sorry for the Intel salesman infecting your head
