Sure it would be great if AMD cards clocked till 1500Mhz, would help them with marketing too, regardless of what performance it would have.

Those AIBs better provide an 8 pin or greater variants. Otherwise OCing is dead in the water. It'll be power constrained like the 1080 (besides thermals) since they already said 150w TDP and there's only a single 6 pin on it.

IMO, they should have at least put an 8 pin on the reference.

Back to waiting for Vega then, where 1080ti or Titan will comfortably stomp it into the ground.

We knew this already... We knew they weren't going to announce any of the big guns during computex and they even stated that they where going to focus on the main stream market.
And what they have shown so far isn't all that bad at all.

We actually have members on the forums running 2Ghz stable.

Which is why im disappointed.Why couldnt they have addressed both markets like Nvidia instead of Polaris as just a mid range product line. They are losing market share on that.

AMD will go after the high end and challenge them later. But regardless, majority of the market share is the sub $200 GPU, not the $500+ . AMD is targeting for the bigger pie and let Nvidia have the "crumbs" of that pie instead of fighting for it now - which are the higher end users and make up less than 1% of the market.

So far it looks like its working - stocks more than doubled from last year and steadily gaining market share.

I would have to disagree and say that most of the PC market today, of people who are actually interested in gaming ATM are in the GTX 970 market.

How is offering a $200 980 going to "lose" them market share exactly? That's just an asinine statement... rolleyes.gif

Thank-you for the correction - that graph was about the 99% that don't have a VR ready PC.... because it is too expensive. Some where in the presentation he was saying the OEMs/System Builders want a VR Ready PC solutiuon to retail for under $1000, and Polaris is an answer to that.

But still, most PC gamers - wither causal, pro, or extreme, is still under $300 for a GPU. If you are talking about OCN or Tech Forum Members, then yea - I will agree with you.

Agreed. redface.gif

I don't think the 6 pin will be an issue at all. Lack of power won't hurt OCs, temps will be the deciding factor here.

As long as you don't care if you run out of spec a 6-pin can easily handle 150w of power on it's own. The extra 2 pins on an 8-pin connector are grounds.

I have to wonder how many people actually purchase prebuilt systems that have dedicated GPUs that are capable of gaming above your League of Legends.
