AMD drop a tease for RDNA 2 in Fortnite

Recommended Posts

The fact that they chose fortnite makes me think low/mid range cards again :/

I'm interested in AMD's response for the next quarter or two. We got a very impressive GPU release by Nvidia coupled with good competition on the laptop end with Intel's Tiger Lake so the moves AMD makes in response will be the most important for the company since their release of Ryzen I think.

I want AMD to knock it out of the park and hit Nvidia right between the eyes, but previous releases haven't lived up to the hype so I'm not too hopeful.. 

 

 

What is different this time around is that AMD releases after Nvidia, with the two previous releases Nvidia could adjust accordingly because AMD either released first or spilled ALL the beans prior to their releases. They've been tightlipped and I wonder if it's due to the above.

Teasing a new GPU using Fortnite is a bit like using a 17 second fart as the opening sound for a high tier Opera.

It would make more sense to be advertising with some AAA game

inb4 Epic has an exclusive deal to sell AMD cards only through their store for the first few months and it requires an Epic account of some kind...

 

But for reals, as much as I'd love to see AMD bring out something that competes on all levels and is what we've all been waiting for...we all know, deep down inside, that it's pretty unlikely to happen. I'd be happy just to see them match the 3080. I hope they don't try and stick HBM in there somewhere.

I personally feel that this teaser would have a bigger effect in a more elaborate game but that is just me

What other game has a user base of 350 million?

I wonder how bad radeon is gonna screw up this time.

At least they haven't let a run away hype train loose this time 😂

Makes perfect sense.

Just think of the massive number of kids who will be bothering their parents for a new GPU!

I mean, even with the 62% estimate of users under the age of 25...that still leaves potentially 129 million people you're advertising to. That's a pretty good return.

Same. I've had ATi and then AMD many many times and I always end up with some stupid driver issues and whenever I have nvidia it is always smooth sailing, except for that one time when a driver update almost killed my GTX 260 because it made everyone's fan profiles flat, no spin up at high temps. To their credit, they fixed it real quick at least.

 

I do really hope AMD can compete at the high end this time, and by compete I don't mean similar performance +/-10% but 300x the heat and noise. Looking at you, 290X!

 

That being said, I was expecting to say something along the lines of "To at least get nvidia to lower their obscene prices" this time once again but the 3080 for 699 is downright reasonable for 2020. The 3090 though................

Eh, I don't mind the price of the 3090. It makes sense for what its target market is. Plus, it's a nice $1,000 discount over last years Titan. People always seem to forget that.

And not fortnite. Guarantee that most actual gamers that are exciting about their launch arent playing fortnite. 😂 

I'd say more gamers are going to see and hear about it in a game than if they just put something on their website. How often do you go to a GPU companies website?

Yeah and this probably didn't cost AMD that much to do. If it's not a featured island then they just paid the mapper to create it and maybe they also told their sponsored streamer to "discover" it. It's a DM map too so if it's any good then it would spread easily. I'd could say that I'd wish to have a brain to live in a world where I could say fortnite bad >:( and pretend like this is the stupidest thing in the world to do but that'd mean having a nonfunctioning brain.

Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

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: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

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.

Eh due to NVENC I'm basically defaulting to Nvidia anyway, but even if that were not the case I wouldn't expect AMD to bring anything to the table that comes close to the 3080 or 3090.

Pretty lame hype. They could drop a video of some popular game running at insane framerate at 8K or something on AMD Youtube channel. No comments, just the game and framerate in the corner. Now that would be an insane hype. And telling one.

I suspect they got direct order from Lisa Su herself to not say anything, thus not building a hype train that they can't deliver.

This is probably why. Nvidia could just slide in a Super or Ti cards after AMD made their announcement, creating price drops, which put them back on top again.

Hopefully it really lives up to it's name of big in terms of actual die size, better be packing a huge amount of CUs really. Many more than RX 5700 XT which is also a fairly small die.
