AMD - A New Era In PC Gaming

Recommended Posts

The PC gaming show hosted by day9 is at 5 pm PST and is a completely different show than the AMD GPU reveal at 9 am PST

 

Thanks, I got the timezones all mixed up :rolleyes:  

9am PST is 5pm over here (I'm in the UK right now). Why can't we just all use UTC?  :lol:

According to Google, 9am PST is 4PM GMT+0 (Ireland/UK time)
I sinceeeeeerely hope that AMD pulls something out of the hat to keep themselves in the game.

If AMDs full lineup up to 390x is going to be a 5% increase in performance and won't match up to the 970 levels, there's going to be a lot of disappointment from my side and I'll simply just buy another nvidia card.
No new architecture means they'll likely not be able to compete on power draw, which is a huge deal already.

i must say, the clip is a good teaser, but i would pick a diffrent font, the "O" and "D" in radeon look quite alike each other, i thought there stood RADEDN at first

Did AMD fly you to their private pre-release party and give you some new AMD products to spruik online? Apparently their are also only 12 members so probably not.

It was a joke ... And yes I'm still using that to write this reply to you ...

Always live for tomorrow because you may never know when your game will be over ... I'm totally not going insane in anyway , shape or form ... I just have broken English and an open mind ...

Do or die AMD, do or die

All or nothing in 2 years to come ...

They said this about the r9 290x, the 7970, the 6970, the 5870, the 4870. Yes each new chip was a leap foward, but it was hardly "a new era", well apart from the 290x which was just a hot mess of a card

 

 

Well this is the first time anything has used HBM as far as I know.

I'm not the only one right?... right guys?

 

Do or die AMD, do or die. Quite a lot of fucking balls of calling this a "new" era when you're showing us almost nothing but fucking rebrands.

 

If they somehow increase performance of the rebrands(which i doubt) i don't mind that, although their financial situation hasn't been the best lately, but with the 3xx series FINALLY coming and zen on it's turtle track it might change that.

yeah, but hopefully HBM is worth it, the HBM cards seem to be in 980 up to titan price ranges if recent rumors about those are correct, not really tempting a new technology VS old trusted methods around the same price range, i would go with the older way then personally.


May the light have your back and your ISO low.

Until it's released I'm not going to judge what price it is or anything like that.

 

All I know is it's the first time I've seen it used, and from the stuff AMD has said, it seems like it will be good in terms of memory bandwidth/speed.

So where my posts, and half the comments in this thread,  and some of the rebrands replies.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Hang on a minute! Wasn't it supposed to be hosted by Day[9] (Sean Plott)? Why is he not mentioned and suddenly Richard Huddy the host?

(Or did I miss something?)

This is AMD's E3 press conference regarding what would appear to be the unveiling of Fury and the 300 series (I presume with other VR stuff as well). What you're thinking of is the PC Gaming Show that will happen at E3 later today (6:00 pm PST).

 

Until it's released I'm not going to judge what price it is or anything like that.

 

All I know is it's the first time I've seen it used, and from the stuff AMD has said, it seems like it will be good in terms of memory bandwidth/speed.

Where HBM really shines is in power efficiency. It consumes only a 1/3 of the power of GDDR5. Moving from GDDR5 to HBM has allowed AMD to shave off 30-55w of power on Fury. That's a pretty significant improvement in terms of performance per watt.

Again?Another new era in PC gaming?

An era without them .... Cause they get destroyed by their bad decisions!

Fury is a new GPU based of Tonga's architecture. It would be interesting to see a GCN 1.3 with improvements over GCN 1.2.

yeah, so what? The 4870 was the first to use gddr5, at the time that was "revolutionary" this is natural progression.

Idk, I'm not all that hyped after waiting so long for this day to finally come. But it's still great that it's finally coming out. >_>

The 290x is an awesome card, it just has a horrible reference cooler.

Such hype. Can't wait.

 

I really hope this card (Fury) is able to outperform at least the 980 Ti, for about the same price point.

 

But how are we going to know that if reviewers aren't getting the cards?

So 11am huh? I have to pick between watching Nintedo's E3 Direct an this and sadly the choice is quite easy. The 300 series being all rebrands has made me almost entirly uninterested in what AMD has to say right now. Hope the news is good for the Fury but I'll find out after watching Nintendo show off what they're doing.
