If they don't bother to update the Windows 10 version its not going to go down well for Microsoft or the developers.

PC Gamers will just prefer to use Steam instead of the Windows 10 store if it means that their games won't be able to get the latest updates in a reasonable amount of time like Steam does.

Thanks for the response. thumb.gif

I ended up just going for the Steam version, 10% off right now if anyone's interested. I wasn't going to buy this, but i loved the first so much that i had to.. tongue.gif

So you got a couple of years of more performance, for paying 650$ 6 months before the 280x came out at 300$.

So if you payed more back in 2013, that card is still giving you a decent value for running some of the current games pretty well.
Huh? The 280x is basically a 7970. The 780 used to trounce it at launch but NVIDIA's doing a wonderful job at crippling their own products. Was planning on upgrading to Pascal but I think I'll switch back to AMD.

Considering the 7970 launched even earlier than the 780, the value has plummeted even farther.

sorry mate. There is no point of view.

You are just twisting it.

The 280X is a rebranded 7970 basically.

Look at graphs.
Look at when Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 was released
Look at Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 price
Look at Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 performance benchmark when released
Look at AMD Radeon HD7970 release, price and performance when released.

When's AMD's drivers coming out? redface.gif
post #357 of 666
HBM fails on Very High Quality. AMD themselves said each game needs a driver for HBM to work properly. HBM could be the downfall of AMD.

It's just a testament to how future proofing is a terrible budget proposition, particularly with that card. But yeah it's still a solid card. Not 600 dollar level, but yeah. If you want a nice card that'll last you for some time, you can always look at r9 290 deals today, and hopefully a similarly appealing product will emerge within 2 years. Just a different purchasing strategy. In retrospect, you'd have fared better on the AMD side anyhow, but that's not always a given.

Paying 100% more for 30% more performance is in the ultra premium segment anyway. It's totally fine to do that if you want to get that performance for that pricepoint. There's just not much gracefulness in that from a lasting value perspective. But again, that's just 1 factor.

Do you have a source for this? Thanks

Very high quality:



I'll be patiently waiting(not really mad.gif) for AMD to get their drivers out, it obvious the current driver is having a lot of problems in this.
