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.

because they are so bad after crimson launched eh?
oh wait..they keep releasing drivers faster than nvidia these days and still have a good quality

who would have knew..

I fried my HD7870, so I'm currently using a GTX550ti...I prefer AMD's drivers, not to mention the fact that this card literally can't run any games at decent settings past 2014 due to poor optimization from Nvidia.
GTX 550 ti = came out in 2011
HD7870 = 2012. Only a few months apart,

and yet the HD7870 (yes it is 2x as fast but I shouldn't be going from high settings @ 60fps @ 1080p to 800x640, lowest settings with 30fps, makes no sense. Yet if I compare the cards with games from 2012..Guess what? The HD7870 is just barely twice as fast)

If you want to sit on a card for a few years..AMD is the way to go. If you want the newest/best/to waste money/ in the moment? Nvidia is probably your bet. thumb.gif There's nothing wrong with either option, just please stop with "ZOMG AMD DRIVERS R DA SUCKORZZ!!" because they're not,

How about we start saying "Nvidia's optimization sucks" I usually buy a new card every 2-4 years. I shouldn't have to buy a new card more often than that if I'm not trying to run max settings.

To be fair, if you look at the changelogs for both, NVIDIA is doing more per release. It's a lot easier to not mess up when you're changing less in the software.

All attributed to DX11 driver and DX12 API improvements.

True, but the 290X was also beating the Titan. It gave you Titan performance for nearly half the price of a Titan.

That was sort of my story. I had buyers remorse throughout my Nvidia years, but 1080p @ 60fps was the goal back then. 1440p@60fps+ has been accomplished and next year 4K should closer to 60fps than ever before. My GTX 400 - 600 cards didn't age very well. Which is why I decided to go SLI with my 670s. I suppose SLI was ok, but it had it's fair share of issues and overtime less games used SLI properly. Instead of going GTX 980 Ti [$750 for the GPU I wanted] I decided to give AMD another chance after so many years of Nvidia GPUs running in my system. A lot of my friends AMD GPUs have aged very well. I can't say the same about the GTX competitors from the same generation.

Like you I usually update every 2-4 years depending on the price and performance. It's been a blast so far with AMD hardware and software. Performance increases over the months and no driver crashing is awesome. I had my GTX 670s until last year [2015] and I'm hoping this Fury X holds me over until late next year or possibly 2018. By then it should have 2 in a half or nearly 3 years in my rig. I'll just have to wait for big Pascal vs AMD next high end offer to release.

What about a single 480 for 1440p? Or is a GTX 1070 necessary for best settings at 1440?

The 480 was shown running Doom @ 1440p above 60fps I believe. I'm sure it's going to depend on how well the game is developed and how well the APIs [Vulkan\DX12] are used. They are releasing more GPUs at later dates, but until we have to wait for 480 leaks or wait for the NDA to lift.

Doom isnt even a demanding game for some reason

you can still dip below 60 on maxed out Witcher 3 @ 1440p even on an (OCed) 1070 .. and few other "heavy" games

to keep 100% above 60 at all times at fully maxed settings (even w/o AA) @ 1440p you pretty much need a 1080 tbh

with a 480 @ 1440p maxed you are going to get 30-40 fps in those games .. so either (1) drop down from Ultra to ~High or so or (2) go CF 480 .. or - (3) dont play the latest most demanding games smile.gif older games you should be able to max out on a 480 @ 1440p

Let say 99% is good for a 480 at 1440p.
so a 1070 wont do any better or a 1080 or a vega due to there will always be a game that wont be doable at that resolution.
so the answer is no card.

If one look at games I play with a 390 at 1440p I have nothing to complain or whine about.
so I wait for the whole 480 line up, check some OC results and then decide due to a waterblock and a 480 might be the best bang in 20 years for value and performance.
cant beat that. thumb.gif

480 seems made for 1080/1440p
4k is still a long way to go for decent fps.
If one looks and checks for gaming experience vs fps and benchmarks since when does 10% fps for example make a difference in a game you play?
with freesync you wont notice an even bigger procentage of difference either.

Its like SSD, today you buy for latency and size, the read write speed does no difference whatsoever in usage.
small file read does make a difference in windows usage thats why I bought the 850 pro SSD.
but if a ssd read seq 20000tb or 500gb or whatever wont matter in any difference of usage only benchmarks.
I dont play and use benchmarks in my usage.

However most dont think like that and buy something they believe will be better but in reality isnt.
and since async compute is important anyone with a maxwell card is screwed and maybe Pascal to
