Which architecture do you like most? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
well nvidias architecture makes effective use of less. Which shows they can use them more effectively in some sense than ATI. However; ATI's ability to fit that many onto an ever shrinking die size is a great display of their ingenuity. In the end I like the way nvidia implements theirs better because of the more powerful usage; die size doesn't really bother me as cases get larger and cooling improves.

Hope this was a legit response haha

According to a few reports, ATI is probably not going to do this as it makes no financial sense. The R770 is maxed out as it is, there is nothing to enable to give it more sp's rop's etc. They would have to make an entirely new gpu to add more stuff to it. Its not like a 260 which is a crippled 280. There is no sense in spending money on making a whole new die/gpu for such a mediocre gain in performance, the next major gpu from ati is going to be an R8xx series. With that out of the way, nvidia still does have the fastest single gpu card on the market. I'm waiting for the GTX285 myself, I'm curious how these new ones will OC and what the stock clocks are going to be like.

ati's design is better at both SP and DP with better perf/mm2 and is able to hit higher clock speeds,clearly the btter of the two this time round.
