Because I feel they have some good tech on their hands and I have the upgrade bug/itch. Might as well scratch it by helping the little guy and get on the DX12 bandwagon while I am at it. biggrin.gif
Sounds good. Raja is a cool dude. I instinctively feel compelled to place trust in him and his vision for the upcoming products.

Negativity bias due to a distant experience only hinders your capacity to make an informed decision today. A smart consumer makes decisions based solely on the merits of the current products, independent of brand loyalty and past product failures.

Imagine if the 7970 delivered the same performance at launch, that it does today?

Actually you did. You just confirmed AMD can be the better choice if they have proper, timely support.They can easily achieve that with more sales. So know your task is to buy and push AMD so everyone wins. wink.gif

I would consider buying an AMD CPU aswell if it is good and not already outclasses by whatever intel offers then, but Q4 2016 might be too late. Depends on when Pascal/Polaris comes out.

Nobody here can argue how great the 7970 is. As a former owner with a 1285 MHz overclock, I agree.

But looking at the chart you posted, the 780 is 14% faster than the 380x. You call that closing the gap and catching the 780.

The 380x is 18% faster than the 770. You call that as making the 770/680 no longer relevant.

A difference of 4% makes one card legendary and one card irrelevant. That doesn't really make sense.

Like I said, nobody can argue the 7970 wasn't the better card by far.

Not to mention the newer graphs which likely use newer drivers aren't so lopsided.



There was likely something wrong with the original testing suite.

It appears something was wrong with that driver, as the driver change brought Nvidia's performance back in line where it should have been.
