[VideoCardz] AMD Radeon RX 480 to cost 199 USD - Page 104

I've played around with this little beast and I have to say this is the biggest improvement in years. Polaris is extremely powerful in micropoligons. I didn't even imagine that this kind of performance is possible on a quad raster design. In an extreme test case with 8xMSAA and 64 polys/pixel, the Polaris 10 is the fastest GPU in the market by far.
The second interesting thing is the pipeline stall handling. I wrote a program to test it, and remarkable how it works. I hate dealing with pipeline stalls, because it is hard, but on Polaris the stalls are just reduced by far. Even if I run a badly optimized program, the hardware just "try to solve the problem", and it works great. This behavior reminds me the Larrabee... and now we have it, not from Intel, but a hardware is here to solve a lot of problems!

Not sure what make of this? First, can someone explain to me what larrabee should have been?

Secondly, what is pipeline stalling and how it effects on gaming? Is it improved async?

Larrabbee was Intel's attempt at building a dedicated GPU, which would've been based around x86. They cancelled the project a few years ago

Searching is your friend. Stall is a stall as it says, what it is precisely you gotta know how PC and it's components work. Dunno what he means by reminding him of Larrabee Intel as there was only so little known about it in the first place.

Assuming all reference cards are identical, what is the best manufacturer to buy from, in terms of warranty support? I know some like to use those tamper stickers and some don't.

Thanks. I know there was a stink a while back involving the warranty stickers. I like to take the coolers off my cards and use a premium TIM, even if I'm just putting the stock cooler right back on.
