I'd go nVidia regardless at this stage.

vega could be a good option vs 1070\1080 at 1440p if they released models with improved cooling at the same price or less

especially for those that want a free sync monitor

Yeah it's pretty good at higher resolutions, and seems to be really good with DX12 titles. but the 1080 and 1080Ti are just... just unbeatable. But we'll have to see how we go as DX12 titles proliferate.

why?

rx570 falls behind the 1060 a little but otherwise there fairly close with the leader swapping at different res

with the exception of the 1080ti which is a monster

What I like about nVidia's offerings is their power/performance. I really dig energy efficiency.

Nvidia CEO believes AMD has suffered a ‘great loss’ and Intel is playing GPU catch-up

 

“Yeah, there's a lot of news out there... first of all, Raja leaving AMD is a great loss for AMD, and it's a recognition by Intel probably that the GPU is just incredibly important now.

 

His somewhat rambling comment on the matter was: “And lastly, with respect to the chip that they [Intel and AMD] built together, I think it goes without saying, now that the energy efficiency of Pascal GeForce and the Max-Q design technology and all of the software we have created has really set a new design point for the industry, it is now possible to build a state of the art gaming notebook with the most leading edge GeForce processors, and we want to deliver gaming experiences many times that of a console in 4K and have that be in a laptop that is 18mm thin.

Bitcoin is expanding too... so it's likely that we'll see graphics cards prices go up further.

 

I wish AMD and nVidia would create mining specific silicon to take the heat away from graphics cards.

Yes, just sell bitcoin gpus to them miners at 1000% markup and leave our gaming gpus alone.

It will increase yield though. All AMD will have to do ship the GPU.. they won't have to bring HBM2 into it, get a third party to package it on a silicon substrate, and then ship it to the card partner. The card partner can even source the RAM themselves. I think AMD feel like they need to use HMB because they co-created it. But yes.. cards are crazy expensive.

Yeah, AMD will insist having HBM with DDR6 because they can.

lol. Apparently Navi will launch with HBM. I hope that AMD traded Raja for EMIB

Cut the shaders and not tell anyone? That is shady.. :P Fertile ground for a lawsuit indeed.

 

Disappointing AMD.. That's worse than what nVidia do.

 

EDIT: We reached out to AMD for comment, and the company confirmed the spec change.

 

"There are two variants of AMD Radeon™ RX 560," stated a company representative. "End users will definitely need to double check specs on variants. Typically the RX560 14cu version will sell lower than 16cu version, [and the] 14cu version will have lower power consumption.This allows our GPU partners to offer differentiation between different SKUs for different power and pricing segments."

AMD also indicated that AIB partners would be responsible for disclosing the specifications of their specific RX 560 product, and the situation brings a new meaning to the phrase "buyer beware."

 

So both are to blame really. AMD needs to hold AIB's feet to the fire and make sure they brand these properly as the RX 560D

 

 

EDIT 2:

 

XFX call theirs the "Core Edition" - well what the hell does that mean to buyers?
