Unbelievable performance at insanely low price $200 eek.gif Might just get one for the hell of it tongue.gif

Why is the mining suddenly relevant again when a good AMD card is released? It will mess up all the price at start and then saturate the used market later, absolutely not a healthy dosage for a struggling company like AMD mad.gif

I'm having great expectations to see how the market benefits from it.
Having more people able to play in good conditions should bring more and better games.
But I'm not picking these videocards. I need overkill since I don't upgrade too often.

So we've decided this was a 980ti Lightning, right?

Only difference between maxwell and pascal is clock and watts.

No, it has never been confirmed. It is purely speculation.

Every single time AMD goes to release a new card, we get fake trolling from the community itself driving up hype, and then blame AMD for whatever reason when the card fails to live up to the hype.

We need to be realistic here. The 480 is likely not going to perform anywhere near a 980 Ti.

I've been saying for a while that I bet it would be a little faster than a 980 and I still stick by that guess. Just seems like nobody is expecting anything from this card despite the fact that it should get a good boost just from the new node. If AMD hard launches and there is enough stock to satisfy demand this could be one of the biggest GPU releases in recent memory (much like the 4870 was). Sure its no 1080 or even a 980Ti but at the price it will absolutely make huge waves in the industry (if performance is what I think it will be). Hell, even if it did come out at just 390 performance levels, at $200 it would still be a strong product (but I still say its going to be +980 performance).

I will also say that at $200 I am absolutely going to be getting one of these cards to replace my 270X in my studio PC and depending on how final performance shakes out (as well as OCing) I might even consider getting a couple to throw in my main sig rig to replace my OG Titans. Would definitely be more of a side grade at around 980 levels but at less than half the power usage and with more memory they would still likely outperform my Titans and I could probably break even, if not gain some $$$ in the deal! I'm thinking I could still get $250 or so each for my Titans, maybe a bit less...

That ignores improvements to architecture and the new GDDR5X memory controller. The 1070 performs on the level of a 980ti/titan x with significantly less bandwidth. Obviously a lot more then just "clocks and watts"

Although, both sides are wrong here. Of course, nvidia will stop explicitly optimizing for maxwell now that pascal is out, but most likely the changes will still benefit maxwell due to similarities. Similarly, kepler has performed well despite people claiming that nvidia gimped them (which, in reality, was actually AMD finally getting around to fixing their driver and getting the full performance out of their chips. Kepler didnt have that issue.) The only reason AMD kept optimizing for the 7000 series is that they had no choice. They had GCN 1.0 cards being sold 4 years later has R7/R9 300 cards. People forget that the 6000 series stopped receiving optimizations once the 7000 series caught on.

No it doesn't. It is irrefutable at this point that the only performance gains the 1080/1070 have enjoyed over GM200 have been due to FF allowing much higher clocks. Using your example, a 1070 clocked the same as a 980Ti would perform significantly worse (well, not counting the massive efficiency improvements).

I dare to say that it will even reach fury performance for a start.
