That would be cool.

For me AMD was always premium. They changed industry many times with their own ideas. Intergrated ram controller, In older days they were introducing new standards first (sata, usb etc) forcing dx 11 and now dx12. HBM. I dont remember bringing so many things by nvidia.

The peasant depiction of console owners is also ironic since they typically pay more over the life of their system compared to PC gamers rolleyes.gif



This is also the reason why PC games are usually badly optimized console ports... just follow the money biggrin.gif

But I suppose having a false sense of superiority helps alleviate the stress from all of the abuse the PC gaming community endures from developers... rolleyes.gif

Anyone have a lot of experience wit Raptr and Game DVR?

I use Shadowplay everyday. Being able to record desktop, gameplay and webcam overlay at the push of a button is amazing!

If AMD's equivalent is its equal then a RX480 is for me 😃

You can use Open Broadcast Software, it has an option to use AMD's VCE's, just like Shadowplay does with NVIDIA.

AMD is most likely working on their own Radeon branded Shadowplay like software, so something more integrated will come out later.

Games normally ask what card and how much ram its allocate for it.
8gb is basically atm a sales PR thing.

Forget my sig rig I don't have that anymore.

Basically my bro has a 6600k and 1440p monitor

I have a 2700k and 1080p monitor.

We will both prob go with a 480, my bro will buy the 480 out end June and then I'll get an aftermarket 480 in July and then we will prob swap cards for whichever overclocks best since he will need it more than me on his higher res monitor.

I'd rather have them forcing Vulkan instead of DX12.
Anyway, I guess there will be new leaks when the final bios is being distributed and I'm looking forward to get a new AMD card in two weeks.

Im only looking at the 4GB cards.  Also is 4GB enough for 1440p?

My bro has a 1440p build and I have a 1080p build, both looking to put a 480 in.

thanks

Reference blower and PCB vs AIB cooler and PCB.
4GB is enough for 1200p but not 1440p not in all games and maxed out, no way. GTAV gave me like 3.5GB needed VRAM on my 3GB GPU with very high settings, dunno why coz it ran just fine (60-80fps average) on 3GB anyway. But other games do happily attack toward 3GB on 1200p and mind you I don't use MSAA I use SMAA. I guess games like Shadow of My dead GPU run VRAM like crazy.

Personally I'm looking for a decent RX 480 8GB with 8pin power and corresponding power limits available. They can put that 4GB version where the sunshine don't shine.

I agree, but it would happen. Personally, I don't even think Neo and Scorpio are necessary.

I wish I could get so emotional over hardware vendors lol. Either Nvidia fanboys who acts like 16 years old living off their rich parents bragging their shiny new FE they overpaid n looks down on whoever has AMD stuff on their rig, or AMD fanboys who believe AMD is champion of morals and thinks they are doing a world a favor by not buying anything from Intel or Nvidia....they all look ridiculous,

Why not just buy whichever is best available without any of this pissing contest.
