We're getting new cards this summer. Why the fuck are you buying a graphics card now, anon?
>>
>>52419714
Because that R9 Nano price drop is tempting as hell. Would go well with my anaemic PSU.

Oh right yeah I'll just wait 6 whole months to play video games. Wtf is wrong with you op you can always sell the gpu and upgrade.
>>
>>52420061
This; I'd totally hotglue a water cooled Nano
>>
Because there will always be new hardware right around the corner. At some point you have to pull the trigger.
>>
>>52420579
This one is different though, the shift to Polaris and Pascal promises to be a big one, with both being massively redesigned, not to mention the process shrink.
>>
They're still going to be selling 28nm Fiji throughout the entirety of 2016 as their high end SKU, with the dual Fiji card as the halo product. The two new 14nm 4th gen GCN cards will be entry level and mid range.
>>
>>52420061
Fuck me I want a Nano now
My 7870 has served me well but it's time for it to retire.

Wait for Polaris or get the Nano?
>>
I came from a goddamn 560 Ti. I deserve the R9 390 thank you very much.
>>
i just recently got a 7850, i'm currently drawing a house in solidworks with it
>>
>>52421012
The Nano price drop isn't time-limited, right?

Wait until we know exactly what we can exspect from Polaris/Pascal and get whichever is the better deal.
>>
I'm thinking about throwing 1,000 for a Crossfire setup.

I'm running R290's in crossfire right now. But still can't max GTAV or Fo4
>>
>>52420606
>This one is different though
Hook line & sinker.
>>
>>52421027
this. upgraded from 7790 to r9 390.

Bought a 960 as a placeholder early last year for my Linux gaymen. My 4690k can't wait for Pascal
>>
>>52421199
But nano is a qt
>>
>>52421292
We're skipping a node retard + HBM
It's going to be a big jump.
>>
>>52420370

man, this is a sfw board....
>>
>>52421386
wait until 2nd generation polaris

Never buy 1st generation anything. Shit will always go wrong in the 1st wave
>>
>>52422015
>2nd generation
Are you insane?
>>
>>52422015
>implying there will be a second gen after
AMD will start the 3rd Impact after they blow the fuck out of Nvidia and Intel
>>
>>52419714
Why would you buy a GPU?
If your reason is gaymen then you should fuck off back to /v/
>>
>>52422109
Multi monitors
4k
OpenCL
VR
>>
>>52421272
>cant max GTAV
You couldnt max that game with 3 way Fury Xs. Or you could max it with a 970 OC, lel.

>cant max FO4
Nothing can max FO4 without constant drops to <10fps. Its a shitty console port.
>>
>>52422015
>second gen AMD card
Nobody wants to wait til 2041 anon.
>>
>>52422109
>hurr muh pure compootin

>hurr I hate anybody ever enjoying themselves
Go deepthroat a pineapple.
>>
>>52422155
3/4 of those things relate to gaming.

Also nobody is talking about them in this thread, it's all about muh AAA gaymes faggotry
>>
>>52422303
>productivity and a nice working environment is videogames
You need your head checked
>>
>>52419714
I'm not. I sold my 980 Ti in October and bought a brand new 780 for a third of the price to hold me over until Polaris.

>i make sure that everyone on /g/ knows i hate games by shitposting in graphics card threads
>>
>>52419714
buying first generation shit, no thanks.
I rather wait another year or 1.5
>>
>>52419714
>>52422015
Does anyone know if we can expect regular, biyearly die shrinks again?
>>
>>52422565
No chance. 14nm will last at least as long as 28nm. Even Intel haven't cracked 10nm yet, which is why we're getting Kaby Lake holdovers.
>>
>>52422565
Samsung is bring their 10nm node online next year and will have it in production early on for cellphone SoCs. They'll be continuing their partnership with GloFo so they'll have parity once again with Fab8.
The two are sharing a wealth of IP from the IBM acquisition, chances are that there won't be any major hiccups down to 5nm since the R&D is already done. Samsung/GloFo just have to purchase the tooling and get their lines to volume ready.
Both of them have also been spending quite a bit on bleeding edge IP from STMicro so it'll be pretty interesting to see how things turn out given IBM's own massive investment in fully depleted ET-SOI. If GloFo's 22nm FDX is any indication then it'll be really exciting throughout the rest of this decade/

>>52422592
Why do people like you just feel perfectly okay making entirely uninformed statements while pretending to be an authority on such matters?
>>
>>52422699
There will be no 10nm GPUs this decade. That is a fact, anon.
>>
>>52422699
Thanks. How is it with the CPUs?
>>
>>52422907
The nm meme doesn't matter with CPUs so who cares
>>
>>52423056
Yeah, I guess.
>>
Because summer is far as fuck away
>>
>>52419714
>tfw haven't bought a GPU since the 680/7970s came out
I can wait.
>>
>>52419714
Because I need a new GPU now. Well now being last September when I bought my 390, don't regret it a single bit. Still looking forward to seeing what Polaris and Pascal bring but I have no desire to upgrade until 4k 60fps Ultra gaming hits the 390 price range.
>>
>>52424074
You need a new one right now when you just bought a 390?
