Maybe your source got it confused with Vega.

I haven't dismissed the possibility, I mentioned it in my OP.

Could it be that most pascals have failed validation and there wont be good supply until October? Like you just go the manufacturer wrong? tongue.gif
Fair play for not running 10 miles from the forum and as I say to everyone giving out leaks/info or even educated predictions, wrong or right, fair play for putting your neck on the line to reveal the info to us! thumb.gif

xD

Pascal as a GPU (GPU only - no PCB, no BIOS, no VRMs, no VRAM - just the GPU gate switching) passed internal validation at over 3 GHz. If and when NVIDIA decides to make a certain BIOS available we'll see Pascal really finding its wings.

Anyways, your post about yeilds and die sizes was pretty good - shut that idiot up that was arguing that die sizes had nothing to do with the cost of production.

Thanks for the service cause ignorance seems to be everywhere around here.

Glad you owned up as well. As one of the many that mocked you, I will also be one to salute you for admitting you and your source were wrong. It takes a lot to swallow your pride in a place like OCN. We were getting our pitchforks ready for you lol wink.gif

In all seriousness though, I'm glad you were wrong and hope that people can see polaris for what it is not what they wanted it to be. Is it a little disappointing that it seems AMD reserved the "performance" cards for Vega? Yes, a little. But for $200-$230 it is still great performance for those still on 1080p gaming. I'd like to replace my 290X with something cooler and more efficient. I'll probably get one regardless, but it would be nice to get about 10-15% more performance.

Everybody makes mistakes. You might still be right with Vega. wink.gif



That "October" joke still is alive and well on AMD threads. lol

Don't think I posted against you directly, but respect earned and false info forgiven.

However, the October joke will live on forever.

Good on you. I won't be mentioning this mistake again. Since he posted this mea culpa I suggest nobody else troll the October thing anymore. thumb.gif
