Yep, its the X34P
must have cost a fortune:  display + gpu.

Is that a G-Sync panel @Pro542?

Well it's a complete overhaul. They build Zen from ground up and Jim Keller is(was) behind it. Remember Athlon processors?
That's not a complete overhaul. You need to move out of traditional x86 computing to see larger gains. Quantum computing perhaps.

Thats why we need AMD to succeed this time. Nvida was only willing to improve their GPU Because there was tough competition. Just look at how much GPU has improved in years compared to CPU. Intel had no reason to think innovative & improve their products because they had market monopoly, and we are forced to buy it since no one else is selling it. And prices, if AMD haven't released Rx 480 for $200 I don't think Nvidia would have released 1060 at such lower price. Opposite is 1070 it has no direct competition so they were able to price it higher.

If AMD is able to match intel performance with a lower price, Intel has to come out with something better next time with similar prices and we as consumers who ultimately win.

Just think about it next time before trashing AMD.
GPUs are different. You increase the cores and performance improves linearly more or less. Not the case with CPUs. Workloads aren't parallel. Otherwise we wouldn't be stuck with 4-core mainstream CPUs.

I don't know how they can improve speed without a complete overhaul.

but according to the new "previews" Zen is actually pretty impressive when you compare with AMD's previous CPUs (Latest ones I mean)
Only because they were so behind.

If Intel didn't have new generations after Sandybridge, Skylake would be really impressive.

What's really impressive is what NVidia has achieved in GPUs. 50% boost over the previous generation is crazy.

AMD's choosing of the benchmark is suspiciously specific which means it's not as good as I was made to believe in things that matter to me.

Also for the enthusiast, realistically AMD has to compete with 4.5GHz Intel CPUs, not 3GHz CPUs.

If it is very good, it won't be cheap. Prices, if they come out soon, will be indicative of general performance. If AMD says they are targeting it for the first 200 million or some nonsense like that, Intel would know they won't have anything to worry about.

RX 480 & ROTTR: 25% 1080p Performance Increase w/ Nitro AIB & Crimson 16.7.3 driver

It probably has a lot to do with stable clocks with the Sapphire card than any driver tweaks.

It's sad that even the AIB partner cards cannot break the 1400MHz barrier with better power delivery and better cooling.

@Anusha



That's a longer list than I expected.

It's not exactly about them ripping us off man, even if what you've posted is true (I didn't read it),The thing is one who is able to spend 40k on a 470, could definitetely add more 3k and buy the better 480.

So this actually doesn't make sense. - AMD making a 470 & pricing it like this.
What I think they are telling you to do is either buy the 4GB RX 470 or the 8GB RX 480, which has a substantial price difference between them. The 4GB RX 480 which nobody seem to recommend these days is a marketing ploy. So when you talk about the RX 480, they can call it a $199. But they sell "it" for $239.

Just like the TX 1070/1080. The actual card is close to $449/699 but the RRP is $379/$599 although you probably won't ever find a card that low.

It's just to artificially make the user think the card is cheaper when comparing price to performance.

Any how now the Reds are selling NVIDIA
It's wiser not to pick just one team.

The RX480 must be the 36 SP version. So roughly 11% faster.

First off, AMD didn't really expect this much of a demand and secondly they had to fill in a massive amount of backorders.
I think AMD needs to fire some people. They have to have people who do these market researches and forecast sales, and they are not doing a good job! Perhaps, they are not used to this kind of demand since AthlonX2 and HD7000 series. :D

Yes they rushed it and it worked in their favor somewhat coz AMD wasn't expecting it. It was supposed to be H2 but it wasn't ready for mass production back then I believe. Now only SK Hynix gets ready to ship HBM2 and sweet time for Vega. Why? Coz the rumors are true we will see Vega 10 before end of this year. May be in October and Vega 11 will come out to counter the 1080ti.

Also i'm not entirely sure about this coz I didn't read much in to it but somewhere I saw an article about pascal is basically the maxwell with a higher clock and a few changes.
Yes there is hardly any architectural change. It's just the clock speed boost they got with the new process node.

I'm thinking that coz they have had few paper launches recently and they had to hurry the 1060 to counter the 480. Therefore I believe they will have supply issues. Just a guess anyway.
And those couple of years lots of thing can happen coz AMD not going to sit around.
I feel NVidia rushed the entire Pascal series. The GTX 1080 came out of nowhere. Wasn't it supposed to have come out H2 originally? Perhaps they were misinformed of AMD's plans. They probably expected Polaris 10 to be a high-end chip. I'm certain all these companies have insiders in the rival companies, because they kinda seem to know what the other company is doing.

Indeed AMD won't be sitting duck. But they have more work to do, because NVidia have high-end cards and AMD don't. They first have to address that, before they can release the next-next-generation cards.

Nvidia needs async computer in hardware level.  If they do that thier power efficiency going out of the window. So yeah I dont see that happening in the immediate future.

About availability you can't still find a 1080 or 1070 for the right price coz of the supply issues and I see that happening to the 1060 as well.
Of course it is not happening with Pascal. That's why I gave them a couple of years' window.

Why do you think the 1060 will have supply issues? I'm sure it is way easier to manufacture a chip with such low ROPs and SPs. But let's see.

The RX480 is also not easy to find anymore. Probably 14nm/16nm yields are still very bad.
