Some of the companies will not make a blower cooler.


I never mentioned a pcb.

And reference blower coolers are coming from sapphire, gigabyte, msi, powercolor, asus, xfx, and visiontek.

Who isn't making a reference version?

Well it seems you got confused then I got confused afterward.

You replied to someone who asked whether other companies will bring out blower coolers like the reference design.

Here is the question.............

They weren't asking about the reference card itself. They are probably interested in a blower cooler with a DVI port, so a custom AIB version.

Plus releasing and/or selling are different things to 'making' only sapphire actually 'makes' PCB/reference cards for AMD afaik. The other companies slap a sticker on and call it theirs.

I wasn't trying to argue about who manufactures the reference cards.

But, as for non reference blowers, perhaps Asus will make a "turbo", or his may make an iceq.

I replied to his question with what I did is because maybe if someone hasn't paid much attention they might not know. 300 series AMD decided to forgo reference all together (yes yes, I know it was the same cards) so someone not in the loop might wonder if there would be reference options this time and I was saying that AMD doesn't make them, but all the aibs will have them. But yes, you're right, i prob misunderstood.

All good I confused myself there lol thumb.gif

Yep I'd expect an asus turbo type card to come out from one of the manufacturers.

Well it might not be for long, we will probably have another vote now and hopefully we vote out this time. Last time there was a ton of fear mongering used on the older generation, basically the fear of the unknown campaign "ohhh what could happen to your pension" etc.

nVidia will clock the 1060 to what ever is needed for the Marketing department to plaster "cheapest FPS per $" all over their marketing.

I'm betting the 1060 will be 6GB and start at like $270.

Probably won't be worth the extra $50 over the 8GB RX 840, but it will be a tad faster, justifying the higher price in nvidia's eye.

Just a guess.

And if Polaris 10 is actually having issues with reaching designed clocks, in 6-10 months, AMD should have better spins cocking 500 MHz higher.

So you think Nvidia will have the kind of margin on the 16nm 1060 they can just willy nilly increase clocks to whatever they need to in order to beat the 14nm 480?

Yup. nVidia has the money to bin chips left and right and use the junk ones down the line for a 1050 or something.

Depends if they want to cut their profits that their stockholders have come to know and love?

If anything, it's AMD that needs profits now more than ever and yet they seem to more willing to engage Nvidia into a price war now. Of course, the latter seems to want to avoid that as much as possible considering that keeping healthy financials while having enough left for R&D is never a bad thing for any tech business especially when there is always uncertainty in the future.
