We have been stalled on that area for a bit now because of die space constraints and lack of bandwidth to feed them, now with HBM2 we have the bandwidth needed and 16nm brings the transistor density we need for a big jump. I really want to see more raw pixel power so that we can finally start maxing out graphics settings and still get 60fps on 4K displays.
Maybe, maybe not. Id guess that this generation they will probably stay with GDDR5 and be rebrands of the current generation. Next gen after Pascal we may see 2 stacks of HBM2 giving 2048-bit interface on the lower end cards as the entire market transitions over to HBM on the GPUs.
FP64 is hardly used in games at all because of how much slower it is. It is useful for areas other than games, but it isnt interesting for gamers. Now the FP16 mixed precision, that will be interesting to see if it actually is useful for gamers or not. I suspect that games will have to be coded to support it though, so we may not see whether it brings good performance increases for quite a while.
...You do know that the CEO of nvidia has held an exact prototype board that you claim doesnt exist, on stage in front of millions of people, right?

And? That's fine for the 99.9% here that are only gaming, but there is a .1% believe it or not.that will take advantage of the non gaming oriented features, or somewhere in the middle smile.gif

If nothing is out by March I'm getting the 980 TI I'm not waiting game.

If it has pros, there is nothing wrong to use it for something in games. Just because it is slower, doesn't mean that it can't help with stuff.

Hey now, it's aging but it's not that old right guys? Guys...?

Oh well.

Anyways, I agree. I don't want to go as crazy as I did previously with riding out on a socket 939 setup on AGP cards like I did until 2011... but I think I'll have this 290x for a while longer.. likely to 2017. Being at 4k though, I could use the upgrade, but the 980ti as much as I want one still isn't the single gpu solution that would really justify it for 4k yet.

Looking forward to getting something from pascal. My 780 is doing an okay job at 1440p but I can definitely feel it struggling in some games.

That said, if there aren't any really performance heavy games coming out that I'm looking forward to then I doubt I'll bother upgrading.

Is there a specific reason you would rush it? I mean unless there is a game you want to play and your current hardware isn't adequate or your current card dies, why not wait the extra month or two and get the 10%+ performance upgrade for probably the same price. GPU's don't really drop in price unless there is a new gen coming out or competition so you might be kicking yourself a month later. With Nvidia claiming big performance gains, I'd say it's worth the wait. Plus AMD might amaze everyone and put out a great competitor that will be worth buying or drive prices down.

Just wait for crysis 4 and play that on 4k and then will see do you need that extra beef on Gpu power or not ? The other question is : AS INTEL and AMD curent speed of upgrading the CPU performance are they gona handel all this GPU power (3 to 4 way SLI or XF)?
