It might be technically very good, but I'm talking about prices and performances.
And my guess is that GTX1060 and the RX480 will be very close on both fields.
So I wonder if this is as special as some people think.

5 GHz effective memory on a 256-bit bus offers the same bandwidth as 2.5 GHz effective memory on a 512-bit bus. We are no longer at a stage where memory frequency can't keep up, with GDDR5 being good for close to 10 GHz effective and G5X for even more. A wider bus comes with its own challenges, such as physically connecting to the GPU. AMD rotated the R600 chip by 45 degrees for this very reason, with a 512-bit bus proving to be impossible with the chip in its standard orientation. A larger bus could mean you physically need a larger GPU just to make the connections possible.

Losing market share? Are you for real??
So AMD will launch a 200$ 6pin GPU that will perform at least at the level of a 980 and they will lose market share.

he thought that 99% people would buy GTX 1080, :lol:

So, the 1080 Ti will only have 256 bit?wink.gif

Maybe, if they want to gimp it and pass on the savings to consumers.

tflops doesnt just translate into fps lol, hello



Also where exactly is it people are getting from that the $199 polaris will have 980/390X performance? Source?

I love the reference cooler design, for the performance i think it will fit between the 980 and the fury non X with a higher overclockability than gcn 1.2 and 1.3 and better prefprmance due to the 14 nm process.
AMD are very smart to release a product in the 200$ price tag with those specs they will surely regain market shares and that will gave them time to release their vega flag chip that i think will go against the gp100, AMD wont compete with the 1080/70 at this point and they are good to not doing so thumb.gif

So, i am safe from purchasing this card until new PSU because unlike 9800GT (and probably unlike 1060) it will literally fry my PSU.

Point still stands.. Already done years ago

Only the price has changed.. No more real tangible performance gains like we used to have. That's what i find pretty disappointing. The 1080 actually has improvements despite its exorbitant pricetag.

Maybe the fact that im not in part of the addressed polaris market has clouded my judgement a little though..

Can't wrap my head thst ill have to wait a year or probably more to actually see performance gains that i can spend on.

There are many possibilities. G5X at 12 GHz (which can be done right now) on a 256-bit bus gives you 384 GB/s bandwidth. Every 1 GHz over and above that adds an extra 32 GB/s bandwidth. A physically larger chip would make a 384-bit bus easier, meaning we could have 10 GHz memory offering 480GB/s or even 12 GHz memory offering 576 GB/s. HBM is a viable option.

I've been chewed out for saying too much so I'm not going to comment further than possibilites. I've also been chewed out by members here for talking about the wrong brand in the wrong subforum, so let's get back to AMD shall we?
