Cool story...No, Interesting...Yes.

It says more about Nvidia's dominance during that cycle that they released a mid range card that matched AMD's highest end.

Yes!

Well they have FreeSync, It's along way away it seems but at least they didn't sit quietly not to mention that it will be nowhere near the price of Gsync, this is ofcourse speculation but logically it shouldn't be expensive.

Dear god how will you survive, Nvidia Shield doesn't have Gsync what will you do Gsync is the second coming of god at this point how will you survive without it when playing on your shield. biggrin.gif

AMD graphics division has always been making a profit.


Nvidia didn't release a mid range card. It matched the 7970 so it was highend at the time.

If Nvidia released a midrange card to match the 7970 then there would have been something faster available at at the time.

It'll be better than Mantle as this is bringing improvements across the board, not just a few select games, and across a range of hardware for Nvidia. Let's be honest those games that Mantle currently supports really aren't that great. Is it Thief and BF4? Plus upcoming Plants VS Zombies.. Really nothing to get excited about. We could well see better than Mantle performance in those games running DX11 on Nvidia with new driver. Looks like a home run for Nvidia tbh.

Looking forward to testing these out.

Err, no. GK104 was meant to be a midrange chip before they decided they could stay with it as a high end chip until later

It's no secret that the GK104 originally started its life as a mainstream i.e. performance SKU, but not the high-end kind. Chip originally designated for GeForce GTX 670 Ti will get that name, albeit in a cut down shape.

http://www.techradar.com/us/news/computing-components/graphics-cards/is-nvidia-s-geforce-gtx-680-an-imposter-1074235

There are other articles that say the same but I can't be bothered to look for them. It (GK104) is a midrange chip that they saw could function as a high end one until later (which is when I guess TITAN was ready. I mean even the chip name, GK104, is closer to that of the 460 (which is GF104) than to the 470/480 (which are GF110).,

I'll be eagerly awaiting this, even as a current AMD user. Like any rational person, I'm impartial to which brand I buy from, and it's about time I upgraded GPU anyway. Kind of sad that I have to write such a disclaimer, but alas.

Generally out of AMD and NVidia, previous evidence suggests NVidia cares less about input lag. I wonder if this new driver won't silently mess with pre-rendered frames to gain a boost. The boost is implied to be free, but I'm kind of skeptical. I want to know why it took NVidia five years, or until the release of Mantle, to find 40% free performance (incidentally a roughly similar figure to what Mantle claims). If they'd known about the boost before, they could have branded all of their cards a tier above their current positions, and sold cheaper hardware for more. In other words, I find myself struggling to believe they held back on purpose, and I find myself having similar feelings about them "just" discovering free performance. Of course, it's only healthy skepticism, and I can't wait to see the real world results.

It can't be midrange if nothing was faster than it at the time. it was a flagship

That is my point.

GK110 was nowhere near ready either so keep buying that story.

Oh my mistake I meant AMD as whole, the only reason they posted a profit as a whole was due to the graphics division. I think you may be confused, The GK104 is a midrange part however due to yield issues and the fact Nvidias mid-range part (GK104 GTX 680) matched and in some cases beat AMD 7970 at the time of release.

People obviously are confused about the concept of midrange and highend.
