So if i am reading this right given 1 fan only a centrifugal setup is the best possible option and potentialy the reference card can be both reliable quiet and yet effiecient ?

In addition, he claims Maxwell to be "incredible" even though it wasn't much of a generational jump in performance. The biggest thing Maxwell had going for it were the spectacular performance per watt improvements within the same node.

Kepler 780 Ti to Maxwell 980 Ti --> ~35-40% performance jump

Fermi 580 to Kepler 780 Ti --> ~80-90% performance jump

Well Porbably it wont compete Overclock vs Overclock but the R9 285/380 didnt match a GTX 780 (Ti) at release but with lack of driver support for kepler Maxwell can follow similar steps (except when OCed because still there is a big gap), and then DIrectx 12+Async compute would put a Rx 480 ahead a 980Ti

but a 200usd card matching an old 600usd flagships sounds better than just power efficiency biggrin.gif

980 Ti isn't a full chip, you should be comparing 780 Ti to Titan X (that's a minor difference to be sure, but still).

Fermi 580 to Kepler 780 Ti was an architecture change and a die shrink, so not really comparable in a Kepler to Maxwell comparison.

Maxwell was pretty impressive for the same node.

Indeed! I never fed false hopes that a 300$ card kicks 600+ units out of business:). I am currently looking for 2 cards: a great HTPC-card, which is the 460, hopefully on a low profile PCB by late summer and a replacement of my workhorse gtx970. The "workhorse" card is not urgent, I might take a 1080 or a Vega at the end of this year/beginning of the next.

Suggested (retail) price is 229 USD (for 8GB model, 199 for 4GB). The price in Polish zloty will be determined closer to the launch, to avoid differences in exchange rates.

Centrifugal fans, AKA Squirrel Cages.

They've been used for ages, and they move a hell of a lot of air in the 110/220 HVAC industry.




Also comes in the Big Daddy version.

that a 1.5 years older GPU architecture matches a new architecture (with lack of proper DX12 support ) makes it impressive?

Maxwell is very very impressive unless you're an avid AotS gamer redface.gif

or any Dx12 game* for that matter.


*unless it's a broken ported GW dx12 game
