How many of you...

betam4x

...are waiting on that next die shrink?
 

Last build (built in 2011):

 

Core i7 2600k @ 4 GHz

16 GB RAM

r9 290 (recently upgraded from a Radeon 6970)

500 GB SSD (840 evo, upgraded a couple years ago from an ancient Corsair Force GT 240 gb SSD)

8 TB of WD Black HDs

 

Got the R9 290 for $249 new from Amazon...only upgraded because Ark ran like crap and $249 for the R9 290 (which holds it's own to much newer GPUs IMHO...can play pretty much every game on ultra settings @ 1080p.  No complaints).  Holding out to see what AMD is going to do with it's CPU die shrink.  Even if they turn out to suck, GPUs from both camps are ALSO shrinking this year.  Definitely looking to do a new build.

I'm already running an i5-4690k, I don't expect to be upgrading my CPU in the near future (2~ years), unless there's a significant rise in the number of applications (that I use) that benefit from having more than 4 cores.

Like many of us, we're waiting for Pascal. We don't know when it will be released could be next month, could be 6 months.

 

Although, I don't think it will give performance boosts that everyone is hoping for. People seem to hear 10x faster and immediately expect it to be 10x the performance of Maxwell.

 

But that's just compute performance and not actual numbers real world numbers.

10x compute performance increase over maxwell isn't that much of a difference, considering maxwell is lacking in computing power, but as you said, we'll see

I'm waiting for big game developers to make proper ports and use all cores on PC like they already do on consoles.

 

Cuz its super obvious they got paid off by Intel.

 

And to stop with the Gameworks bullshit as well.

 

New architecture means nothing if companies only want to stall significant performance progress to milk us dry.

 

As a programmer, I'll tell you that multithreading across 8 cores (and keeping them balanced) is hard.  Especially when your user base uses anyhwhere from 2-8 cores these days.  That being said.  I'm not partial to any vendor, but Gameworks actually does make me actively avoid Nvidia.  The last Nvidia cart I bought was the 750 ti...first gen maxwell and that was for an HTPC.  If they'd stop pulling dirty moves in the market, they'd get more of my dollars.  When you have 2 vendors that performance wise are within 10% of each other and 1 is being a dick and the other is being awesome...well I'm going to go with the vendor being awesome.

Consoles are fixed targets.  One game deploys to millions of units.  On PC, most units are quad core or less.  There are very few true quad core units (AMD FX isn't really quad core since it only has 4 FPU units.)

 

Edit:  There are basically NO 8 core CPUs on the desktop.  You quite simply CAN'T count AMD FX CPUs as octa core, even if your love your CPU.  It's not since it's handicapped via the lack of dedicated FPU per core.

2600K Masterrace :D *Highfives*

 

I won't be upgrading mine for at least two years. When I do, it'll be replaced but used for another machine. I'll never willfully throw my machine away.

I'm waiting for pacscal , greenland or volta.

 

I plan on waiting for 10nm or skylake e , but i might get zen or broadwell e .
