WOW, Nvidia is shit.
I suppose if you're one of the few people who pay $400 or more for GPUs it's ok because the 980 kinda competes with the 390X (a bit faster, but costs more) and the 980 Ti is obviously better than the Fury X, but on the mainstream market Nvidia is completely BTFO.

Why do they even sell anymore?

>Why do they even sell anymore?

Because they work, unlike AMD which had troubles with every AAA game released this year.

I have a 380 and the only title I had issues this year was arkham knight, where nvidia users had the same ammount of issues

OP here, yes, 280X.
Only issues I had were in Arkham Knight (not AMD's fault) and PCars (where Nvidia paid to have the developers deliberately fuck AMD users with PhysX). Fallout 4, Witcher 3, GTA V, MGS V and Inquisition ran without a hitch.

Are you retarded?
Also, this is from TechPowrUp's 380X review, which is their most recent one and uses updated drivers. Which is very likely to not be the case on the image you just posted.
>>
Been reading about GPUs the past couple of days.

Seems to me that AMD releases absolutely trash drivers for year and then year later releases proper drivers.

Also with Fury X seems like that shit wont overclock, costs the same as 980TI here, has the same performance in 1440p 2160p resolutions.
>>
Does anyone have experience with Fury X in >>51471430 1440 resolutions and gaming?

I guess I'm better off with the 980TI.

Does the Direct X 12 support mean much (only thing edging out the 980TI as far as I can see?)
>>
>>51471430
>and then year later releases proper drivers.

Only because they weren't able to release anything new for the past 3 years. People are mistaking their incompetence as long term support. Back when AMD had a rapid release cycle they they toss their old cards in the trash.
>>
>>51471430
>>51471449
>http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/R9_380X_Strix/23.html

Fury X is faster at 4K, a little slower at 1440p.

>>51471430
Never had any issues with my 280X, what you read sounds like fearmongering to me.

Even if it were true, that would mean the 370, 380 and 390 today are all better than the Nvidia alternatives even with shit drivers, and it's going to get even better later.
>>
>>51471520
Read about the bad support from AMD on here, overclock net, then some tests pages like Techpowerup where new AMD cards sucked ass until 6 months later they got actual drivers etc.

I'm going to get 1440p screen so if 980TI and Fury X cost the same and have same performance, I really should get 980TI considering it overclocks way more?
>>
>>51471543
980 TI overclocked is at least 30% faster than a Fury X.


Check out this review, skip to the 10 minute mark.

I am going to buy a 960 over the equally priced AMD model, simply because of the power consumption and me wanting to test an nvidia card
>>
>>51471614
I know, but how does it work at 1440p? Does it hog more power than Fury X? How is its min. performance in comaprison to X's min performance etc.

and I'd like to see how they both look when playing back blurays. I consume them quite a bit.
>>
>>51471543
That's bullshit. You can see in the review I linked, the 380 just launched a few months ago in june, and is a new chip (Tonga), so by that logic it should have "shit drivers" still. yet it consistently beats the 960 at the same price range. This is just FUD.
I could spin the same thing the opposite way. Nvidia stops providing driver optimization for old cards sooner than AMD, AMD supports them for longer, which is why you see the 270X as fast as a 960 now, and how the 970 used to be way faster than the 290 and 290X and now is slower than the 290X and not much faster than the 290. By that logic, AMD releases shit drivers and later releases good ones, Nvidia releases shit drivers and never release good ones.

And yes, get the 980 Ti. It's a better choice regardless of resolution (even at 4K I'd take the 6 GB of RAM over the performance increase). It also overclocks much better, if that's your kinda thing.
>>
>>51471342
You got it backwards fucboi, what is best for the consumer is what actually works.

>inb4 but big bad evil nvidia boogeyman

Yes, blame Nvidia for AMD's incompetence despite the fact that this is the year 2015 they can't do tessellation properly even though it has been heavily used since 2009, not to mention countless of software problems they face(BF4 Mantle was unplayable until recently)

They had their chance with 200 series and now the 300 series and they didnt even try to put any effort on it.


>inb4 but muh monopoly and Nvidia fucking over costumer

AMD has demonstrated that they are willing to fuck consumers with lies and economically too, they are no better than Nvidia, AMD is better off dying so a big company can buy Radeon and make good GPUs that can compete with Nvidia's, that would actually be better for the consumer than just having AMD around trying to play catch up with Nvidia.

>inb4 but muh 300 series
cards released just now beat cards that are more than 1 year old what a surprise, as if Nvidia couldn't release the 980 with bigger memory width to destroy the 300 series.

>inb4 but 300 series is just old 200 overclocked series

No they are not, the memory chips used are physically different and the chipset is higher quality, you are lucky to get a 290X overclock to 390X stock, not to mention even AMD itself considers the 300 series a brand new card and not a rebrand like with the 200 series.

also what does Intel has to do with this?
I hope you are not suggesting people should buy AMD's CPU instead of Intel, because that would be really silly considering how a 2500k still beats everything AMD has.

You mean AMD, which has the better card offering throughout the entire mainstream segment? If that's AMD being imcompetent, I pity Nvidia when AMD is competent.

>pushed for an open dynamic sync display standard, made freesync, which nvidia refuses to use even though it would be good for everyone

Nice try, Nvidia shill. Your employers are still fucking the market with their proprietary standards which makes everyone but their pockets lose (including their own customers).

>cards released just now beat cards that are more than 1 year old what a surprise
You Nvidia faggots love to say how the 300 series is rebranded and AMD doesn't release anything new. Now, when Nvidia gets BTFO by AMD's rebranded cards (Tonga is new, but the 280 and 280X still wipe the floor with the 960, 290X faster than 970) sudden it becomes "released just now". Are you retarded or something?

>as if Nvidia couldn't release the 980 with bigger memory width
First, they couldn't, because it would require manufacturing a whole new chip, it would be very wasteful and come with the usual yield issues that come with new chips.
Second, it wouldn't even help at all, because the 980 is not a bandwidth starved GPU. A wider bus would make practically zero difference.

>>
>>51471191
I like how excited you sounded when you typed this post. It's commonly known that if you're looking for a good price/performance product, you'll go with AMD. However, Nvidia cards blow out AMD cards when it comes to high end.

I think Nvidia just tries marketing their cards to people who have money. They may be overpriced, but the best Nvidia cards are better than the best AMD cards. So for someone as fortunate as myself, since I don't really need to worry about money that much, I'd rather pay a little extra and get the highest quality possible than get a more fair deal.

A ~230€ i5 runs games just as well, but would surely be a good amount cheaper if it didn't have that shitty IGPU trash.
>>
>>51472322
Yes, they will. Not everyone needs a discrete GPU, specially in a workplace environment. In that case you can just buy a Core CPU and not have to worry about the GPU at all.

Also, it's not totally useless if you have a discrete GPU either. You can still use quicksync, for instance, which is excellent when recording footage from games (so it affects neither your dGPU nor your CPU). And with DX12 multi-GPU becoming a thing, it will expose the Intel GPU for games to use as well.

>>51472376
Unlikely. CPU prices are chosen by Intel, not a direct consequence of manufacturing costs and nothing else. Intel has huge artificial margins on their chips, because right now AMD can't compete. They wouldn't reduce them if they didn't include a GPU.

They did release some P-series i5 a while ago, Ivy Bridge if I'm not mistaken, with the GPU disabled. They were barely any cheaper than regular i5s with GPUs.

Fury X loses bigtime to the 980Ti.
Well not bigtime, it's about 5% worse so if you can get it more than 5% cheaper than a 980Ti it's a good purchase.
My advice with benchmarks is never rely on a single game. Always use aggregations of games.
Most benchmarks you see posted here are of single games, cherrypicked to show whatever the poster wanted to.

Both cards have DX12 support.
The difference is that the Fury will, in a properly coded game that uses all the features, gain an average of 30% FPS compared to DX11, whereas the Nvidia cards are so specialised on DX11 that they experience a slight performance drop of about 5%.

Pretty sure I've seen them floating around somewhere. Screencap comparisons and shit. I don't have anything saved though.
Basically, there was banding visible in the shots playing back on Nvidia cards, and the colours were slightly shifted and looked odd in some cases.
Wouldn't be surprised if that's related to some of Nvidia's hacks they used to get lower video playback power consumption (it's like 2-3W more than idle power consumption on a 980Ti, how much can you actually do with that little power?)

I watch a lot of blurays and I'm getting some expennsive monitor go with the expensive ass GPU so I'd like to be sure about things.

if Fury X performs better in blruay use (better colors or whatever) then that might just be a dealbreaker.

It's just always game FPS average comparisons.

>>
>>51478971
Not exactly by AMD making newer and better drivers, but because NVidia depends on drivers to make their cards run well. NVidia cards aren't really strong cards (you can see AMD cards beating them everytime in compute tests), but their drivers are undeniably well-optimized. However, it takes time and money to make them - and older cards will get "forgotten" from newer optimizations.

Also, as AMD bases all their cards on incremental architecture changes, newer optimizations will pass on to the older cards, as they are all GCN.

But I'm just talking out of my ass, though.

>>51479232
Doesn't the 390X match the 980 Ti in compute performance.

There are two types of dx12 benches, the regular kind where it follows the usual hierarchy/gpu tiers, and the shitty ashes benchmark. The ashes benchmark has been discussed to death and the 390x performs uncomfortably close to the fury x (1~2fps) but the 980 ti still pulls ahead. The ashes benchmark isn't a reliable indicator of dx12 performance, but that won't stop poorfags dreaming.

A combination of factors, but the primary one is that 4gb of vram doesn't hold a card back at 4k. The otheri s GCN is built to get absolutely slammed which is why it takes less of a performance hit as resolution increases (and thus, load) compared to maxwell and kepler.

I have a Fury (my first AMD card since they bought ATI) and it's been the just werkiest graphics card experience I've ever had. I haven't needed to update the drivers since first install and everything plays at the FPS you'd expect or higher with no stutter.

My last few cards were NVidias and there was much stress over getting the right 'game ready driver', which often had problems for the first few weeks after a game came out and there was horrendous coil whine on all cards too. Comparatively the Fury has been very good for my blood pressure.

YMMV of course but currently AMD are in my good books.

Actually, the 295x2 has 8 GB of VRAM. But the 3.5 GB 970 SLI proves your point.
>>
>>51479781
>If it did the 295x2 wouldn't beat a titan x

it beats a reference titan x whilst being more expensive and consuming 3x the power, no thanks shill
>>
>>51479804

technically yesi t has 8gb of vram, but neither crossfire or sli stack vram, so for practical intents its a 4gb card.

>>51479811

>3x the power

No, it beats it using around double, which is entirely expected as its two 250w cards bolted together. The titan x has a TDP of around 250w.
>>
>>51479855
No, it technically has 8 GB of VRAM on each card. There were 8 GB 290X, also.

I know, right?

My 290x is faster than my 970 and my friend's 390 is faster than my 290x.

Not to mention my 970 is janky as hell in ways a card really shouldn't be. It's just fishy as fuck.

There were 8gb 290x models, but the 295x2 doesn't use them.

>>51479886

Its to show how vram isn't the limiting factor - the 295x2 has immense gpu grunt but still only 4gb of vram for practical purposes.

>>51479889

DENIED.

Tom's is showing the specific load of the card on each poart is draws power from and its showing average. Your chart of maximum is meaningless because maximum loads don't matter as those spikes last for milliseconds.

Have a newer chart showing the gigabyte 980 peaking at higher draw than a 290x.

so if AMD has history of beating Nvidia cards with better software support should I get Fury X instead of 980 Ti

I really don't know what is the dealbreaker between 2 cards.

Does Fury X do anything better than the nvidia card? Maybe 4k resolutions but that is not my worry I do not own 4k monitor.
>>
>>51480032
>AMD has history of beating Nvidia cards

they don't, amd's always only been good for price/perf. i don't see the fury x ever outperforming a 980ti given how poorly the fury x OCs, they won't be fixing that even with a rebrand.
>>
>>51480054
980TI it is unti further notice.
>>
Not buying a new video card now, when Nvidia is gonna release cards with 16nm node manufactured chips in 3-4 months.

AMD is so freaking fucked until they release their new lineup towards the end of 2016.
Nobody will buy their old 28nm except fanboys and retards.
>>
>>51480087

even worse is that AMD already confirmed they'll only be releasing new high-end 14nm GPUs, the low and mid range will still be 28nm rebrands
>>
>>51480067
good choice
>>
>>51480032
I am currently using a 290 and I just bought a BenQ XL2730Z. All its great but now my 290 is struggling along at 1440p. At first I was really considering about just buying a Fury X. But after tons of research it pretty much ended up being that the 980 Ti is just simply better. Sure you can OC the Fury X but only so much and it barely does anything. Even with the voltage unlocks you will still only manage to barely break 1150. Lets not forget about the VRM temps. AMD went full retard on their card design with this. EVEN if you had no voltage locks you will still get fucked and throttled by the VRM temps. The 980 Ti Hybrid can easily reach 1450 and keep low temps and not have it's VRMs blow up AND performs a lot better in most games.

People say wait for DX12. Please. Tell me when the next AAA fps shooter or mmorpg comes out using DX12. 2016, 2017? Please. By time DX12 actually becomes viable the Fury X will be obsolete and AMD/NVIDIA will have a new mid tier car that will outperform the Fury X in all games on DX12.

I am planning on returning my BenQ XL2730Z and getting the ROG Swift and a 980 Ti Hybrid. It is the only smart choice.
>>
>>51480133
>980TI HYBRID price 900 euros.
Welp.

>>51480133

Link?
>>
>>51480106
How are they planning to survive like that?

Do they even have longterm plans? I assume that would be nothing but time waste.

I wonder what the tops of them are thinking right now, especially Lisa Su.
>>
>>51480174
980 Ti uses an AIO cooler to cool its chip and has it's own dedicated fan for the VRMs and stuff. The difference is that when overclocking into the 1400s on air, the chip will obviously be getting hot. The Hybrid keeps the GPU around 40c~50c while a normal air cooled 980 Ti will probably be sitting at around 85c. Lower temps, longer lasting and higher clocks.

AMD made the GPU division autonomous under the radeon name recently, they're probably just going to sell it off since they already slashed the fuck out of r&d to fund zen's development

I'll buy this Hybrid 980 Ti if I can get it under 750 or something here.

The going price, asking price, is 900e and mindfactory doesnt even have this
>>
Remember: last time Nvidia jumped on a node shrink and a new memory the 480 happened.

To this day the 480 is the thirstiest card ever built.
>>
>>51480385
Tell me about 480

Why was it so thirsty?
>>
>>51480385

are you trying to imply that the 6970 wasn't consuming just as much power as the 480?

no attention was paid to power consumption for high end gpus before 28nm, so i don't really see what the concern is.
>>
>>51471219
Implying I didn't buy my PC for video editing
>>
>>51480471

TSMC can't deliver for shit and funnily enough thats who Nvidia are using for pascal.

>>51480481

Power consumption on the 6970 was lower though. Regardless power draw didn't matter until Nvidia's marketing for maxwell went into overdrive. Half of the shit they ripped out going from kepler to maxwell is going to fuck them hard later on.
>>
>>51480621
>Half of the shit they ripped out going from kepler to maxwell is going to fuck them hard later on.

the only thing they 'ripped out' was double precision capability, which AMD also did on hawaii (1/8th performance) and fiji (1/32nd performance).
>>
>>51471639
Buy a used Kepler GPU that isn't an x60 card.
>>
>>51480690

They also took out hardware scheduling as its useless for DX11, but something that DX12 exposes. Hence why whole emulation thing as ashes of singularity brought to light the driver handles it.

Software solutions are never as good as hardware ones.
>>
>he fell for the AMD meme
>>
>>51480736
>They also took out hardware scheduling

you fell for the AMD shill meme, the gap between the reference maxwell cards and amd's rebrands actually was made smaller with dx12
>>
This is somewhat relevant thread so I post it again.

Is the color difference of IPS and TN panels really big, noticeable, distracting or is the color difference of the panels just that - a difference and not necessarily a huge dealbreaking minus?

Take into consideration im looking into 500-700 euro monitors.
>>
>>51480804
So this is one simulation where Fury X comes close.

What about all the others where it dont come close?

If you lose the game tests, then what do you buy Fury X for? Not for video games, that's for sure.

but what?
>>
>>51480804

I did not say it affects performance in ashes - I said ashes brought the issue to light.

If you know what it actually does you'd realise its quite a mistake on Nvidia's part.
>>
>>51480879
>If you know what it actually does you'd realise its quite a mistake on Nvidia's part.

not really, the support is there. asynchronous execution has been supported since fermi, it's part of the spec for CUDA.
>>
>>51480924

Yes and CUDA has specific restrictions on how it schedules workloads. For non CUDA compute workloads maxwell is terrible.

What sort of wizard bench mark is this and why doesn't AMD use them in marketing

>>51481054

They don't mention it because gamers/normies don't care about opencl performance. It is far, far more important on firepro cards and AMD does market that fact.
>>

then who are amd marketing for

Are G-Sync or Freesync worthy 'features' of a monitor? I'm just wondering if I lose much by getting 980 Ti + 144hz monitor but not G-sync monitor
>>
>>51481325
adaptive sync is pretty awesome. What monitors do you have in mind, and what's your budget?
>>
>>51481325
freesync should theoretically be on all monitors that obey the current VESA standards, so really the question is:

Do you want VESA standards, or Nvidia's?
>>
>>51481403
non-G sync
Asus 27" MG279Q (600e)

G-sync
Acer 27" Predator XB270HU IPS (840) (I REALLY dont like this monitor as it is one of the first isp 144hz monitors and as such it must be shit)
Asus ROG PG278Q 27 (800e)

>>51481436
VESA if its universal I guess. So I'm good to go with the MG279Q? Is there any better alternative to it if I really dont need to care about G-sync as long as it supports VESA?
>>
>>51481465
it's not shit, that's a silly way to think. If you have the money for it, the acer predator is a better monitor than the asus ROG
>>
>>51481532
I really doubt one of the first wave monitors could be good. I have tested too many first wave electronical things in my life and I have not once been happy.
>>
>>51481136
64bit floats in the context of parallel processing are utterly meaningless outside scientific applications
>>
>>51481544

>>
>>51476343
Fucking november. AKA nearly the end of the year
>>
>>51481576
About it having growth pain issues like any first wave electrical thing and device I've tested.
>>
>>51481594
that isn't specific. growth pain issues?
>>
>>51481645
Like any first generation device has. You know, 'tarded as fuck issues that are obvious later on.

Being immature product I guess is the clear way to put it.
>>
>>51481735
well there's no doubt that similar, better products will be on the market in time, but that doesn't mean that the predator is a bad monitor. If I were in your situation I'd definitely buy it.

But if you're really that worried, the ASUS is good too. You'll have to deal with TN though.
>>
>>51481819
Yeah fucking bitch ass TN.

Can you answer to >>51480841

I can get the Predator but I have really bad experience with such products as I said.

G Sync is amazing and if you can afford it you're stupid not to have it. I got the Asus ROG PG278Q on release and it is impossible to play on non G Sync monitors. Even if you think you have things running totally smooth G Sync makes it like butter. The on the fly refresh rate button is bad ass and blah blah blah it's great.

The TN haters are poor retards that don't understand it's a gaming monitor first and everything else second.
>>
>>51481843
IPS makes a massive difference. TN looks pretty nasty after you're used to IPS

>>51481929
Yeah i'm a snatch ips later next month, thansk

>>51471191
Op is retarded, none of AMDs cards are faster in the first place.
>>
>>51478922
It's not that the older cards are being gimped, too many people would notice that, they're just being less optimised for newer games.

>>51478994
Also this.
Maxwell is a new architecture, but it should have matured plenty by now. But I still think AMD is more futureproof. My 5870 still gives me 75-85 fps on battlefield 4 high settings in silk road. Only map I play anymore since I'm not too big into gaming lately.

>>51479423
That's no longer a valid bench, nvidia made them drop async support.

>>51482362
futureproof sounds like religion

i believe in overclocking potential for 'future proofing' gpu.

and high end nvidia is better than high end amd in that regard no?
>>
>>51482623
I think futureproofing is a stupid thing to base your card on if you're one of those people who upgrade every 2-3 years, but for me it's turned out great.

I'm still happy with the performance of my 5870.

Sure, a newer card can probably beat it in performance and use less energy and run cooler, but I don't that as reason enough to drop cash on a 380 or 960.
