[VideoCardz] AMD Radeon RX 490X Specifications - Page 17

That's over 9000! biggrin.gif

Funny thing is without better CPU performance I really have no use for a new GPU over the 980Ti. DOOM already runs at 2560x1440 120fps and everything else is CPU capped.
I guess games next year will use it (especially once new consoles come out) but for now it's just like adding nitrous to a pedal bike.

Edit: Ok, there is 4K 120hz to shoot for, so as soon as those monitors hit the market then we'll have a real reason for this kind of card to exist.

That's the main problem with the high-end GPU market. You need to offer something no one has seen before because at around the 970/290 level you kind of stop needing more power at the moment. I'm sure with xbone scorpio and PS neo you'll see ports easily demanding 8GB of Vram, but at the moment, they're doing wonderfully and have been for 2+ years.

The other issue is although me and you have 1440p or 4k (5k) monitors, it's a largely innaccessable market for most consumers. Similiar to 1080p monitors many years ago, where the sweet spot was 1680x1050. Because most people are still playing at 1080p res or sub-1080 res, if they picked up a 290 or a 970 2+ years ago, you guessed it, they have absolutely no reason to waste their money on new cards.

Either more demanding games or new technologies will have to come out to push the GPU industry forward. It's been almost 10 years since crysis. If a company were to come out with another groundbreaking step in graphics, we could move on. At the moment Ashes of the Singularity is the only game pushing what was previously impossible with GPU compute... but it's just an okay game and most GPU-crazy guys don't play RTS games very often.... Or of course, 1440p/4K monitors for cheap, etc.

I'm worried that they have tied their fate to HBM2, hopefully it pans out for them.

It might work, if they can get more products out with HBM, imagine what APU, mobile SOC, and and consoles could so with such technology. They need an HBM eco-system in order to see greater benefits for their GPUs.

Also, they need to get the market excited about smaller form-factors, didn't happen so much with the Fury Nano - most advanced product of last generation IMO.

Anyhow, looks as though Nvidia has abandoned HBM for this generation.

I had a fury x and a 980 ti. I personally liked the fury x better. But my computer did not like either one without doing a fresh install. So I am stuck with my 280x and the fans are going out. This card looks like a beast. Can't wait to get my hands on it! Maybe I can run everything on ultra at 60fps on my 4k

Awesome! What did you like about the Fury X over the 980ti? smile.gif

Honestly, It felt smoother and just a tiny tiny bit clearer in a few games. Most of the time there was no difference. The 980 ti did have a little bit higher frame rate but they were virtually identical at 4k to me. This was back in September of last year. So I have not had the pleasure of using either card with new drivers. Just from my little bit of experience, I will definitely go with another AMD card. My 280x has been chugging along. Not playing anything demanding with it, So it works for now.

GP102 won't - Nvidia abandoned HBM2.

Question is: will it matter?

I would argue no because they aren't developing an SOC anymore.

G5X for now support only 256 bits.
