[pcworld] Polaris inbound: AMD teases unannounced Radeon RX 480 graphics card - Page 11

post #101 of 185
Jesus I am unable to enter an AMD thread these days without multiple pages singing holy praises to 290X rolleyes.gif


as good as it may be - ppl who like to stay to stay 60+ (or as close to high refresh ceiling as they can) fps, Ultra, 1440P in all games DO need to upgrade every ~2 years on the clock .. to them a 290X doing ok-ish 4 years later does nothing

Nvidia cards are very good for that


and can you blame them ? they just want the best gaming exprience, nothing wrong with that

and honestly I dont think buying a single new ~X80 caliber GPU every 24 months, while selling the old, is a bad deal for someone who spends a lot of time playing modern games

Sorry I couldn't hear you over the sound of how loud I was making out with my 290X.

Agreed.

I personally like how long AMD cards can keep their performance up but this doesn't help AMD at all. Someone who bought the 7970 in 2011 and are still using it today only means that AMD sold a GPU once.

AMD needs to work on getting the most out of their cards at launch so it actually provides incentive for people to upgrade more often. This is why a lot of people who upgrade often go with NVIDIA; its because they can extract a lot of performance out of their chips right at launch rather than having to wait. By the time that AMD cards catch up to NVIDIA, its all for moot as there is another generation of graphics card coming shortly.

I will say, in reference to that, benchmarkers are still doing a piss poor job. Take this one for instance, a reference 290x vs a 780 Ti GHz (re: OCed >20% edition).

1920.png

This was also day 1 after release and iD specifically stated they had caused the problems with the 390x down and would 'fix' it. AMD fixed it 3 days after release (2 days after this benchmark).

780 Ti was beating it by 10% heavily OCed vs reference.

Here's my benchmark on the 16th with the new drivers to fix iD's mistake:

As you can see, this is from stepping outside the first time. Regular wandering around from stepping outside until initial enemies 'overload' event at ~60-70 seconds the average is somewhere around ~120. Like I said before, I think those HUGE peaks and valleys in the first 60 seconds have to do with certain shadow effects. Once the fighting gets going at ~70 seconds, you see the average drop to around ~100FPS until I die at ~170 seconds (I originally set the logger to 300 seconds but died halfway through, the second run through event is about the same as the first).

My logger had an Avg of 113 for the whole run with a screwed up min/max since the load screens are obviously not correct, but they were 0/1338 respectively. Obviously not correct. I did an average up to the last reliable second of 169 seconds, it was 109.5. From 1-75 (Which is me 'wandering') average is 119.0, From 75-169 (Combat, first combat frame seems to start at 74 seconds, but it made a nice split) average is 102.2 FPS. Min/Max for first half was 98/149, Min/Max for second half was 90/119.

This is strictly Ultra settings, no settings tweaks at all. Card clocked at 1125/1400 for an ~12.5% OC on reference design clocks of 1000/1250. Other notable things you can see in my rig below, but FX-8350 clocked to 5.1GHz and ASUS Crosshair Formula-Z Mobo are the big ones.

That's my 290x with a moderate 12.5% OC vs the GHz 20-25%. It's beating their 780 Ti benchmark numbers by 30% now.

Tired of this two faced benchmarking that goes on. (I didn't look at the specific 980 card, but it's probably heavily OCed as well and I got pretty darn close to it. ~10%)

If it IS fake, this is probably one of the better thought out fake timelines i've ever seen.

Consider an improved front end, and maybe some IPC improvements, and it should at least match the 390X. Add in the likelyhood of it not having the front end bottlenecks that were so prevalent under most DX11 games with the 200/300 series, and it should be able to perform slightly faster than the 390X... Hopefully.

Considering they're putting the GTX 980 as a comparison, I would expect it to beat it. The 390X should also beat it. It only doesn't because of the front end. So... Yeah. I guess we can extrapolate the performance somewhat.
