So why haven't you all upgraded to at least a 980ti by this point? You can easily sell them as soon as Pascal comes out. It's so not looking good for AMD.
How are you going to be selling a 980Ti when pascal comes out when everyone is buying pascal
I mean, there can't be THAT many stupid people, surely?

I have two 980 Ti's. I'm not going to get Pascal until 6-8 months after release because all the best models of a graphics card don't come out until way after launch. The exception this time was the Gigabyte G1 980 Ti which is damn good and came out close to launch.
>stay out of the hobby
what hobby is that?
Being a useless leach on society who simulates life instead of living it?
Nvidia are going to release their 16nm chips which will be around the same p/w as the polaris stuff which is coming. It's only good news for consumers after being stuck on this 28nm ride for ever.
What does autism have to do with anything I posted ?
Guys, I could buy a ''used'' R9 Fury (non x) for 460€. It was returned to the store by a previous Customer but hasn't been in use. Warranty until 2018.
I could also buy a 980 (non ti) for the same price. I'm not exactly sure which one to get. They're pretty similar performance wise, but only if you overclock the living shit out of the 980. The Fury was only OC'd slightly in the benchmarks that I saw (partially duo to not being able to OC higher)
Pic related is my current rig. I think the only thing I need to change right now is the GPU. I'm going to college again and will most likely make much less money, so what would be the better option if I want to use it for at least 3-4 years. Currently using a 1080p panel, but I wanna either go with 4k or jump on the VR train once it comes down in price in one or two years.
>So why haven't you all upgraded to at least a 980ti by this point?
Do we have any news on the release of the GTX 1000 series yet?
I want to upgrade for my Rift preorder, but if the card wont be out for another year, I might just cave and get a 970 in the mean time...
The fury slaughters a 980. The gap widens even more once you up the resolution.
You can't overclock the Fury though.
There's a massive gap between reference 980 shown on your benchmark (which nobody buys because it's more expensive) to an non-reference overclocked 980.

What else are they supposed to use? BF3 is an AMD title.
If they bench using a more recent title the chances are it'll be a gameworks titles like the majority of the games today and you AMD users will cry foul play. The Fury will get demolished because of the piss poor tessellation performance.
It's not me that want it. I didn't complain about it. The other guy has a problem with BF3 for some reason.
Also you can get a 980 for around $350~ on sale now. The Fury still goes for $500. AMD can't compete.
are you seriously trying to get people to shill out for 970/980s still?
the smart people saved their money and are going to drop it on next gen and there's nothing you can do about it, jew
Let's just say *IF* the Fury is faster (it isn't), it's still not worth $100~$150 over the 980.
If you gave the slightest amount of effort you can grab a $400 980 on sale easily. I have never seen a Fury go anywhere close to that.
I don't have $600 to drop in one shot
Look this one
''So what is Nvidia launching? The GTX980Ti is nothing more than the high bin 980, this time it is clocked at an even 1GHz. Several variants are being touted by the normal AIB set with top shelf ‘Press Edition’ parts hitting ~1250MHz or so. OEMs are expecting 75-100MHz boost/turbo speeds on the low end, 100+MHz on the press variants. Everything else should be the same as the non-Ti 980s, it isn’t the big Maxwell the BS rumor sites listed a while ago, it is just what we said it was last year.S|A''
This website is shit
AMD is superior to Nvidia until you hit >$300 territory.
Don't fucking try to argue that the 960 is better than the 380 or that the 950 is good at all, we both know that's simply not true.
No card out right now is fully compatible with DX12
The 780ti isn't relevant now given the gimping Nvidia has given it.
>It's so not looking good for AMD.
Polaris prototypes are said to be Star Wars Battlefield 3 maxed out using only 60W (that is with a low-range gddr5 cards), so I dunno about that.
