Yeah.. I asked for this to be locked. I just wanted it back from an accidental delete because it had the live discussion.

This is pretty epic but until crossfire is properly supported by devs/DX12 gets fully adopted it doesn't mean they'll be competing with Nvidia's mid-high end bracket.

This is definitely a game changer though, Nvidia is going to have to essentially compete with crossfire AMD low end cards beating their mid and high end GPUs for less cost which in turn will likely push them to lower pricing to a more reasonable level while maintaining their high end performance.

It's exactly how I imagined AMD competing with Nvidia - it's just going to take a year or two to fully mature as a business plan due to current crossfire not being well supported/DX12 not being adopted yet.

Aaand what about RX480+1060? biggrin.gif You know, just to piss off the game devs because this is possible as well now with low level APIs.

For people like me, and I am pretty sure mainstream people aswell, don't care for SLI/CF.

For me it is always like that :

- Look at your budget
- Look what's the single best GPU you can get for that budget
- If budget is higher than the price of best single GPU then think about SLI/CF
- Consider in cost of power supply, PSU, CPU aswell because right now I simply couldn't put in a second card.


I would never buy 2x250$ cards if I have 500$ budget. I'd rather buy a GTX 1070 than 2xRX480.
The only time I'd consider SLI/CF is if I were doing a high end PC build with absolute high end cards and I yearn for more performance than the best single GPU can deliver. That has never happened and probably is never going to happen.

I don't wanna bother with SLI/CF issues, profiles missing, bad scaling. I'd rather have one card and slightly lower settings/framerate.

lachen.gif Not sure if anyone else will get this!?!

If anything to make this succeed, AMD has to step up their driver quality as they have been promising and help devs make explicit multi-GPU a reality in Vulkan and DX12. I will look forward to $350 - $400 SLI/CF solutions on that day.

That's where the DX12 bit comes into play, the game plan for AMD isn't the best currently because of what you mentioned. Once DX12 is fully adopted though their plan will make a lot more sense.

Memory bandwidth isn't just size of the RAM that a game takes up, it actually limits performance and if you go above it you immediately see stuttering similiar to the stuttering we saw in the AotS demo from THIS PRESENTATION.....

it's not good. not good at all.

Its the same BW as the GTX 1070. 256gb/s + around 40% from compression.

Whe don't know the ratio of compression of GCN4. Pascal is heavily compressed, as they show in a image with the parts compressed and almost everything was colored.
