I'm sure having two engineers dedicated to managing the memory... management on the Fury's is helping. That and HBM working differently, I don't think that is a true representation of how much video memory can be potentially consumed atm but it does show what can happen when some knowledgeable people optimize games for specific hardware.

Also comparing new vs used prices is just thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Ugh AMD is not giving me extra memory for free. Looks like I'm buying Nvidia! Wait...I think they're evil too for not selling me their products for what I'm willing to pay. Looks like I'm buckling down and waiting for 3Dfx to come back around. Hear that AMD and Nvidia? You're not getting MY money. Well actually you likely will but I like to rant on the internet using my inflamed sense of entitlement.

Good pricing, may end up being my next card.

Couldn't agree more.

Card looks great for the price. AMD's DX11 driver pushes me away from the purchase though.
post #190 of 503
Doesn't the 480 have a new command engine that will boost DX11 stuff? IMO wait until the benchmarks, it might not be all driver side.
