  1. Not to hijack this topic but I feel like I'm in a very similar situation. In light of Zen 2 I am preparing a system upgrade and managed to pick up some G.Skill 4000CL19 at a very reasonable price and was wondering if it's worth sticking with these and downclocking much like the OP?
  2. Yeah, did all that, multiple times. It just tells me Windows 10 upgrade reserved. I guess it's due to them staggering the updates.
  3. How did you get yours to install? I keep getting a windows update error when trying to install Windows 10.
  4. Sounds amazing. As long as I don't have to trade a foot for it.
  5. $999 probably Australian/Canadian dollars. Loving the stickers.
  6. Project Quantum looks like a lava lamp and I LOVE it!
  7. So many people seem to be confused as to what the 390X actually is. It's the rebranded 290X, NOT the Fury flagship card AMD are launching soon.
  8. A Fury thread doesn't go by without someone complaining about the 4GB of vram, all the while having no real world experience with Fiji.
  9. As with anything that requires game developers to not be lazy, I wont hold my breath. I just hope AMD provides good drivers at game releases, much like they did with GTA5, and none of this "GameWorks held us back..." bullshit.
  10. Just saw this posted on OC3D facebook page as well. Not that it's anything new, but nice to see the marketing direction they've taken. To all those people touting that 4GB vram isn't enough for 4K and it will be the death of this card: AMD appear to putting ALL the emphasis on 4K with the marketing direction, so having "only" 4GB of vram appears to be a non-issue. EDIT: Clarity.
  11. In some respects it's quite desperate from nVidia. Cannibalizing their own product line essentially, and inadvertently penalizing those who elected to purchase the 980 or Titan X. It's bordering on unethical business practice on multiple levels.
  12. I don't think there was much incentive for nVidia to compete on HBM1. They already maintain the vast majority of dGPU shares and thus don't really need to be at the forefront of innovation to drive sales. Plus there's the risk of early adoption with new tech and the innate issues that can potentially come with it. They can allow AMD to "beta" test the technology (as you pointed out) and, should it perform well, they wont lose too much in terms of revenue, but they can improve on whatever short-comings it may have in its current iteration ready for Pascal. nVidia maintains a lot of its success through aggressive marketing, and refining existing technology. AMD are almost forced to rely on early adoption of new technology as a selling point. I just hope that AMD can claw back some market share so both companies can start pushing innovation.
  13. They may be comparing it to the previous generations flagship. Could be a mistake though. On paper this card is shaping up to be well worth the wait. Hopefully it performs in gaming benchmarks at the same performance.
