Im genuinely curious who uses what company's gpus, before things change with the new gpu launches. REMEMBER: one brand per company vote.

I'm interested to see how the next generation shakes out. AMD and Nvidia trade blows right now in the low to mid-range, while AMD doesn't have anything to compete with something like a 2080Ti, but rumors suggest that Navi 2 might actually give even a 3080Ti (or 3090, as it might be called) a run for it's money. That's just rumors, though, so obviously salt should be applied liberally.

The mythical 3090 seems to have 2 chips, if rumors are true

-uses Nvidia in main rig, AMD in bedside pc-

-has multiple brand of GPU plugged into main rig-

 

... Yes

Maybe allow multi choice?


Things I need help with: *new* Need help from "G-sync Compatible" monitor owner(s) / LF> specific Red/Blue Liquid

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

ummm.... what one is the main? like, numbers would be skewed if i let multi choice. One person has 10 pcs with 10 difrent brands, split across amd ans nvidia, when someone has one amd pny gpu.

New rumor out that says the 3090 will be the 2190.  Rumors are like roaches. We apparently will know at least some stuff in a few weeks.   Unless it’s just another marketing “event” and nothing useful is revealed again.  I personally am not even going to start caring until the next AMD cards are out as well and in the hands of reviewers to compare them against each other.  Late 2020 maybe.  


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

I need multiple choice for this.  My main rig is using Nvidia and my wife's is AMD. Kind of unfair on the selection.  And ignore my signature at the bottom.  Haven't updated in a bit.  


Current Build

I5 4460

Hyper Evo 212

Gigabyte Z87X-D3H

WD 1TB HDD

XFX RX 480 RS 4GB

Thermaltake Toughpower 650w DPS RGB 80+Gold

16 Gigs ddr3 1600 Patriot Ram

Mixture of Phanteks and Thermaltake Fans

Phanteks P400S

I find brand loyalty to be near worthless with GPUs. At any given point a company can produce a good or terrible product.  The only gpu manufacturer I know of with a rep is astek, and their rep is to make GPUs that fit unusual size requirements.  There are a couple with bad reps I guess.

I didn't say anything about brand loyalty

True.

 

 It has that ring though. “who uses which gpu company” “who uses which gpu brand” Might be possible to figure out what a given user has by what brand is chosen.  Most of them were really good at a particular point and bad at another.  I’ve got a wind force 970 for example, that was really well reviewed for noise when it came out and was a quiet card.  I looked at wind force 5700xts though and they were not considered good. I wound up with a procolor 580 because it was simultaneously decently reviewed and on sale, and my 970 had a massive problem with my monitor and win10.

I was more looking at who uses amd vs nvidia rn. the brand was a after thought.
