[videocardz] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 to feature 6GB 192-bit memory? - Page 5

post #41 of 123
yes the 480 CF will provide a wonderful, stutterful, driver and support plagued experience

but hey it costs less than 1080, so its all good right thumb.gif


there is really no point whatsoever to do CF 480 unless (1) you are really into VR (2) and somehow CF works perfectly with all VR games with 1 card for each eye (idk if that is actually a thing or if VR devs will bother optimizing for that)

otherwise just get a 480 and hold on until Vega then sell 480 (or keep it if it costs so little) and get Vega in 2017

Also Dying Light, Hitman etc..

There are games that need more and there are more to come.

And last CoD (Advanced Warfare?) could eat up to 9GB of gpu ram. So whats the point? It was as smooth on my 780 Ti with 3GB as on Titan X with 12GB.

Your opinion, of course.

My 290X crossfire chews Battlefield4 @ 1440P ULTRA ~180fps. Same for blops3. Insane performance.

But somehow, it has an absolutely disgusting stutter in Project Cars, even though it doubles the framerate from ~40 to ~75 @ 6400x1440P


If all games had the same attention as BF4/blops,, or even the decency to not impair one brand (pcars), crossfire/sli would be unstoppable.

DX12 and VR might be final needed step, and those developers who opt out of multicard due to technical inability or simply "sponsored" bags of money (looking at you again pcars),will be shamed.

if it was cheap enough i would, it would fulfill the purpose of upgrading old rigs to a more useful rigs.

though even if it was priced $199, compared to RX480, unless GTX1060 is notably faster, i doubt i'd even consider it.

Would it be more expensive to implement 192 bit vs a 256 bit bus?

CFX for VR is the only reason to get 2 480's. AMD allows each eye to be rendered at the same time with some really cool tech, which essentially makes scaling perfect. Single-screen crossfire with this method results in 0 microstuttering, although tearing along the middle of the screen can be quite apparent, with VR headsets there is no tearing! It's actually really cool to see in real life how well it works. Nvidia has a similar rendering technique for multiple GPU's as well.

So what it comes down to is what game requirements need. A single 1080 would cost more but will be better for everything except VR. Or you could get 2 480's for VR... Or hell even two 1080's or 1070's if the price of them goes down to MSRP in the distant future. But for 400$ to have absolutely fantastic performance for 1080p(using single GPU), decent 1440p(using single 480), and great VR performance that is essentially equal to the 700$ 1080 FE currently available, that should be praised.

Plus, from leaks/rumors we can see an OCed 4GB 480 can nearly match a 1070 in 1080p, (although keep in mind an OCed 1070 can nearly match a 1080). We'll be able to see soon enough though, I'm pretty excited!thumb.gif

Its almost the same price, a few less dollars per chip, the 192 bit bus is suspect but maybe nvidias memory compression will make up for the difference when it goes up against the 480

Very little. The main purpose of Nvidia limiting their buses is to limit performance at higher resolutions. A 192 bit bus ensures this card will be gimped at anything over 1080p. Just like the 1070 is gimped at 4K, but has just enough bandwidth to do well in 1440p.

no, buswidth has hardly anything to do with resolution, its bandwidth that matters more.
and each 64bit bus is quite large on a die, removing just one 64bit bus, specially on a smaller die, will result in a large reduction in die size.
