And it will still be a huge a huge success and nobody will care except those who want to create drama on forums.

Just like the AMD 390 launch was thumb.gif

Maybe. Crossing my fingers for Polaris, personally! 14nm is gonna be pretty nice in the long run for either camp, at least.

Many people cared. The 970 is still a good card compared to the 980 in terms of price/performance, but I am 100% certain that due to this the 390 and 390X from AMD sold better than they would've if the 970 was a "real" 4GB card.


I actually had the chance to sell my 290X back then to buy a GTX 970 and I was strongly considering it because of the lower power draw which is important for me because I actually noticed going from GTX 680 to 290X on my electricity bill since I game a lot , but then after they found out that the 970 has gimped VRAM I instantly decided against it.

In many games I am hovering around 3-3,8 GB Vram usage and I am glad I don't have a GTX 970.


One thing I know for sure is that I won't jump blindly into buying an Nvidia card again, because of it. Thankfully reviewers will very likely test if something like this happens again with Pascal. (I doubt it, because Nvidia said it will never happen again, but still I am going to look more closely and will generally be more suspicious towards Nvidia. I always considered myself neutral in AMD/Nvidia/Intel matters and I owned more Nvidia cards than AMD/ATi cards in my life, but if all things equal for future cards (price/performance/power draw/Vram/noise/heat/etc.) then I am more likely to go with AMD cards just because I think it is pathetic what Nvidia has done in the last 4 years especially since they were so successful with it. Well if Nvidia has a better card than AMD then I will still go with Nvidia)


I agree on the 3.5GB Vram jokes being overused, it isn't funny anymore. We all had good laughs when people were talking about Nvidia cars with 3.5 wheels instead of 4, but now it is definitely time to let it go. thumb.gif

is it even possible to get steady 120-140 fps on an amd card?

- The BenQ 2730z and the Eizo fs2434 both are Freesync with blur reduction (blur reduction with better ranges even).
- I believe they are working on borderless freesync still (took G-Sync awhile to work borderless as well).
- That's just trolling, LOL, not sure if serious.

There's more (and better) ultra high end G-Sync choices out there but there's probably more Freesync choices overall and the quality is catching up.

trolling? yeah. calling out amd overhead problem out loud is trolling. somehow fury x is getting whipped by 980 on lower resolutions on a regular basis but I am trolling.
and if I see correctly the benq you mentioned is the same price as my dell g-sync. where is that $200 price advantage over gsync? suddenly putting the same features on a freesync monitor as g-sync ones makes it the same price.
I see no freesync mention on that eizo, but I trust you're telling the truth. but $420 for a 1080p/60Hz display isn't exactly a steal.

Let's talk about problems, I just switched from quad Titans to a single Fury and my frame rate is similar, relatively speaking, and frametimes are better. In fact, I am wondering why it took me so long to switch... one reason was this non sensical perception that AMD drivers are somehow behind Nvidia. Wrong! And where is Nvidia's sli scaling and driver improvements on the pacing side now? In the toilet, yeah, that's where.

really? you experienced better frametimes on a single card than quad sli ? well, that's unexpected.
my post was never about cf/sli scaling, please don't make it like it was. my question concering achieving +120fps on fury x was connected both to the fact that I experienced overhead back in the day I was running 2500k and 290 (up till last summer) and more importantly on fury x being trash at lower resolutions in majority of games, which maybe points to the overhead too.

Ignoring your condescending comment; this isn't my first time at the rodeo with Nvidia's multiple card set ups. I have been running sli sine quad 690s, but the frame pacing driver support for sli has been going in the toilet ever since Nvidia believed or claimed that it was more of a "software company" than what it actually is, a hardware company. I don't know if there is a direct link between its ever complex software suite and driver support, but it certainly seems that way in practice.
