[T4Gamers] nVidia unveiled the computing power of next gen cards - Page 4

post #31 of 141
I'm really hoping for a big jump in performance from both Nvidia and AMD. I'm also hoping that developers will code their games better to actually tap into the new found power. It will be a joyous day when in game graphics become hard to distinguish from a pixar movie.

I don't the first iterations of Pascal will be twice the power of the TX or the 980ti. Going forward perhaps but not right away. It'll never be a bad idea to get a second 980ti.

Edit: For everyone "hoping" for such power increases are you even using 4K or multiple 4K? No point if not.

Does multiple 1440p monitors count? I'd love to be able to get 100+ FPS on Ultra setting on dual or triple 27" 1440p monitors.

I wonder if Tesla and GP100 are the only GPUs to feature HBM2. Not just that, but NVLink too....

Guess I'll hold off getting a 980 ti then.

No NVLink according to this document :



http://www.ecmwf.int/sites/default/files/HPC-WS-Posey_0.pdf

It's the pdf where performance trends coming from. Document seems quite old though.

Thanks to Godmode from 3DCenter for finding that.

There is NVLink there but only for enterprise (POWER) and ARM devices. Makes sense...
I dont think end users like us (gamers and enthusiasts) will get NVLink. Not until Volta atleast.

That's not entirely true.

NVLink will still allow multiple Pascal cards to talk to an Intel (x86) CPU. The multiple Pascal cards will talk to each other using NVLink, but they must talk to the CPU via PCIe.

Until Intel/AMD changes things, that is how it will remain. When the do change, then all the CPU's and GPU's can use NVLink.

But that doesn't mean that Pascal won't use NVLink with Intel/AMD, it just means that the CPU and GPU won't talk using NVLink.

Seems you're right 47 Knucklehead. Thanks for the rectification thumb.gif
