[Tweaktown] AMD wants to 'spice things up' at GDC, could tease Polaris - Page 13

I'd say the GTX 970 is an even bigger joke, and those who defend the VRAM arrangement should be sectioned under the Mental Health Act for their own sanity.

Arguments aside from nvidia vs amd...I would really expect Polaris to show off here sometime soon. Maybe end of March-May time frame. Amd really needs to get the jump on nvidia this time around in the gpu rhelm in order to capture what market share they can before nvidia sweeps up with pascal... I'm really hoping amd launches a great product that's priced right. I may just switch if the temperatures and power consumption are in check. I'd expect their mid/top tier gpu on Polaris to perform slightly above the 980ti.

It was a stop gap till Titan showed up with its 1K price tag

True, but GK104 was selling for $500, thx to the 7970's initial performance wink.gif

NVIDIA wasn't able to sell the 590 for more than $750.

I'm just overall excited to see what DirectX 12 will do for the Good'Ol golden ticker of the last decade, the HD 7970, I'm really surprised that when it launched it was below a 680 in performance, now the 680 would have a hard time finding itself to achieve at least half the performance of a 7970.

In fact I'm more excited to see what DX12 will do to older cards like my two R9 290 and my 7970 than what it'll bring for newer cards like the Fury X or Polaris, Hawaii is shaping up to be one of the longest lasting graphics cards along with the HD 7970 of this decade, I really (Just a whim of mine) Want to be rocking a HD 7970 in current and future games knowing it'll keep increasing in relative performance to even the newest of Nvidia cards, there's something about this idea that just please me, maybe it does because it reassures me how good of a buy that was, or maybe it pleases me because it's a moment of freshness and rest of this consumerist market crushing you to upgrade every year or so under the menace of decaying or stalling performance.

Oh Good'Ol 7970, I might actually write a poem for you, little rusty and dependable piece of hardware that manages to always stay besides me, even after all these years, up to the task on the most endeavouring of renders, even when everybody else is doubting on you, I don't love you... But I'm getting there.

Meanwhile AMD continues to decline because you and people like you never upgrade to their newer cards. tongue.gif

I am only half kidding though. Some of you that support AMD so strongly, have some of the older AMD cards. How about some of you actually spend money and support AMD instead of trying to guilt trip and badger guys who buy Nvidia cards every year to buy AMD?

Because $$. I can understand people not wanting to spend an entire months rent on a graphics card every year, while some other people have a ton of disposable income.

With that said, I've been upgrading every gen because higher resolution monitors have become more available and affordable as the years go on. It's an expensive vicious cycle. biggrin.gif
