New AMD graphics cards!
« on: June 11, 2015, 01:04:00 pm »
well, redline priced it at 42K!. sweet jesus :-*..finally my wait is going to be over.
by god's grace I've avoided 970.

AND RECENT NEWS! - 380 is not just a re brand of 285 tonga chip, there are reports that AMD DID improve the chip (same story for 390 hawaii too) :-* :)

a 970 killer for 42K WITH 4 gigs of vram which YOU COULD USE ALL 'DEM GIGS IN FULL SPEED....unlike some crooks' cards where they betray you.

I've even thought of going for 390...but 8 GIGS is just too much  ;Dand unnecessary for me as my upgrade plans for 1440 failed. for-get 4K. :D

I pray for AMD to regain it's market share soon, other wise those green crooky cockroaches would introduce GT 1040 for 200K!

I'm not an amd fan, but here's another story, AMD shared it's code for TRESS FX (hair simulation tech used in tombraider etc) so the greenies were able to optimize their drivers for them. but when their's hairworks tech used in witcher 3..they refused to share the code with amd,so amd couldn't optimize their drivers for witcher 3 hairworks. nvidia cards, they themselves suffered heavily from hairworks :D :D :D that's completely a different story.


this is how crooked nvidia are. they do pay gpu comparison sites, they pay trolls to anti-amd posts, this is very obvious if you take a look at GPU boss comparisons ;D

finally AMD is coming with a deathblow..I hope it lands well.

edit : there are reports of 380X too, with tonga XT chip and possibly with 6 gigs of vram...if that's true. i'll wait for it, not too keen for the extra 2gigs from 380 but for the extra cores ;D and it would be priced around 50K i guess?
but no official confirmations yet. :(

I thought the 3xx series were all re brands? I think I read that somewhere. Just with slightly faster clock speeds. The only "new" card would be the Fury series, which is meant to compete with the titan.

If they are indeed rebrands, I don't think the 380 will beat the 970 considering not even the 290x beat the 970 in most games.

Although, this is just what I've seen/read in comparisons.

I definitely want AMD to succeed though, don't want nVidia to monopolize the GPU market.

This  (Y)  (Y)  (Y)

That said, I have read in a couple of tech blogs and they all were saying that 3xx series is a rebrand with a little bit increase in GPU power. Couple of blogs were quoting a leaked hardware IDs, driver IDs etc.

Yes, it has been said apart from "fury" (fiji) series, all 3xx's are just 2xx's with more memory,bumped clocks and new badges.

now it's reported that amd actually improved the chip design too, i'm not sure in what "aspects" they "improved". only benchmarks will tell.fingers crossed. even if they don't impress that much, i'll personally go for 380 or 380x if that's true. the pricing is just making me to drool.
 
hawaii chips (290s) are even getting new name after improving them (they are codenamed as Grenada in 390s)

not only those, even older 260,270 (pictrian, bonaire) are said to be improved too.

here is the article,
http://www.fudzilla.com/news/graphics/37967-amd-r9-r380-and-r390-have-respun-chips

only thing stays same is the 250 :D

I didn't mean 380 as a 970 killer in a pure performance view but in a {performance-hard.earned.rupee}  view ;D (Y)

but improved 380X or 390 can be the real 970 killers. we just need to wait and see how AMD improved them apart from ample amount of memory and crazy clocks spds :D :D

Jesus NITRO!!!!
Why in hell would they name it nitro???
I liked the older names.
Dual X, Vapor X, Tri X and my personal favourite .. TOXIC  ;D
Maybe there'll be a toxic version or a one similar in performance that'll outshine other cards in the same line.. Just have to wait though

Dude seriously..



There is no reason to say 8GB is TOO MUCH for 1080p now. It can be utilized for higher texture settings.

And have the backbone to say you are an AMD fan at least. We can see how thrilled you are :D

It won't be a deathblow. There is a huge crowd that have reasons who wont go RED way until they fix their issues.

no dude, they are jiggling beyond my control (I have flappy, juicy mantits ;D) not because of I'm an AMD fan, but because of I just missed 970 betrayal (that's what i call it) and guess what...an AMD card is going to available with a "4 FULL gigs"  ;D for just 42K!
that's why I'm thrilled my friend, because even faster 970 would struggle if past 3.5 mark. you yourself said,

There is no reason to say 8GB is TOO MUCH for 1080p now. It can be utilized for higher texture settings.


then how it would feel to be crippled at 3.5 gb on a faster 970? :D

I wasn't "fan" of either of them. but now, yes, as you said I'm officially announcing that I've just became an AMD fan, even though i owned a single amd card and two green cards yet, :D

or

these replies have something to do with the 780 and 760s in both of your systems :D :D :D :D

oh wait, there is even cheaper 370 available for 32K! but i doubt that old ass pictrian would be fast enough to make that 4 gig worth.

Dude I'm a green team fan and my work depends on their hardware. I've been in this forum sometime and people in here might know that.

We all know Nvidia is bullshitting though prices and that 970 marketing was horrible thing. No deny in that.

970 is past. This is like mocking earlier gen iphone whenever new samsung phone is released. meh 970 was a blast when it was released. For 1080p it will be the same for next few major AAA releases despite of it's 0.5GB issue. So in the end, you people with 4GB mindset and 970 guys will be playing the same game with minimal difference of FPS give or take a few.

When r9 270 was available for 30K I went for a GTX760 for 44K when I could easily get a r9 280x with more performance for another Rs.4000 added which Kauboy asked me to do like 3 or 4 times at RL that day.

People measure everything with money. Price and value are different. For someone feature set that being offered from green team is much more valuable than that 10 fps increase within that budget. For other raw performance is everything so they go with AMD. Like that.

Remember people price and value are different and subjective.
Enjoy your card when you get it.

But we don't hate AMD. We love them more because every time they introduce cards, nvidia does price cuts.. win win :D

Well said. We don't hate AMD at all. In fact I have recommended AMD cards for many of the systems built here. As Unix said price and value are different and subjective.

Agreed and peace treaty signed.

if you need all 'dem CUDA cores...say Kudos to green.

if you just want to swing with Geralt and fry an egg....come to the red side! ;D

Just saying.

R9 380 doesn't kill the GTX970 just because it has 4GBs of VRAM. Not even close to it. It's a tad faster than a GTX960. Even that's a maybe. Just get your facts right.



Honestly I'm disappointed in AMD the way they release new products. That coming from a AMD fan. A massive one.

I have no clue what you have in mind but the performance you get with the 3XX SERIES is not significantly higher than the previous Gen. They should come up with some woodoo shit.

And yes.

I thought the 3xx series were all re brands? I think I read that somewhere. Just with slightly faster clock speeds. The only "new" card would be the Fury series, which is meant to compete with the titan.



Almost all the new AMD cards are rebranded. Plus I hate their new naming scheme. Nitro. WTF!
