It's all in the title. I was actually shocked...
I have faith in AMD, just saying Nvidia is putting on the pressure
From where i'm living, this would cost me half of my monthly salary.... and i'm not even on the low income bracket.... LOL but on a serious note, i never have the faith on nvidia, so i'm sticking my neck out waiting for the next gen of amd cards
Agree, really need to reserve judgment until we see what these HBM cards can do, especially with DirectX 12.
on the bright side, those new cards seems to be nearing launch with all these teasers coming up recently LOL
Looking at the benches that were released, that's not a bad price. Everyone thought is was gonna be more. But like a lot of ppl, I still wanna see AMDs offerings
lol the 980 ti is 800 upwards not 650
is 650 what it costs in the us? lol
It's certainly a good price when compared to the Titan X. I'm gonna wait for Fiji though, I'm on a 290x and I'd like to stay with AMD if they provide me with a good enough reason too. My only concerns are that the Fiji card may only having 4 gb's of ram and the rumour that the price will be high due to development and build costs.
It's not a problem.
Not a problem IMO.
You can also clearly see that Nvidia is scared of Fiji XT because they paperlaunched the 980 Ti only about 6 to 8 weeks after the Titan X was released.
I disagree, Nvidia haven't released it because there scared of what Fiji brings to the table, They released it too maximse there market share before AMD's response. If they where worried about the performance the Ti would of had the full amount of cuda cores like the Titan X, but it hasn't, they released a cut down chip in the 980 ti. My guess is performance will be pretty darn close with some games favouring the TX/Ti and some favouring Fiji. Nvidia have done the smart business move, They know that a lot of people who were waiting will now jump the gun and buy the 980ti because it looks like a bargain compared to the Titan X, Those people won't now buy Fiji, and the few who might of switched back won't do so unless Fiji offers a significant performance leap over the TX/Ti making it worthwhile and that's extremely unlikely. Nvidia are simply maximising there market share while AMD has nothing on offer. The smart consumer (like me:)) has waited till now and will continue to wait until Fiji drops but a lot haven't which is what Nvidia was hoping for.
Ok, looks like the new cards are not performing too well at least for now, i'm just hoping they price the card reasonably.
AMD's Fiji XT GPU 'Fury X' currently slower than the GTX 980 Ti
Ugh. Please refrain from putting WCCFTech and/or Fudzilla as your source.
Yes please, WCCFTech and Fudzilla are rumormonger city, and hardly anything they say is accurate.
In your "source" at the top it clearly says that any speculation about performance is meaningless until launch. Why? Probably because all of these rumors are complete BS.
So just wait until E3 when the card is launched.
i do notice that, that's why i say for now. Btw just checked from my local reseller, it seems like 780TI is selling for 865dollars here, not 650
competition is always good for the consumer
We have a problem? No, people who bought Titan X have a problem. They just got ripped off terribly bad.
I feel bad for them.
Just saw the review of the Hybrid 980Ti... OC it beats the Titan X in some benches & is less. The ppl who jumped the gun on the Titan X must be pretty mad rn
I think that may depend on the purchaser. If purchased for gaming then yes and rightfully so but, if it's for professional purposes then more than likely no. Most professionals have a need for the larger video memory size resources of the Titan X. Honestly, if someone bought a Titan X solely for gaming purposes, they need to reevaluate their purchasing decisions as well as educate themselves in the memory resources necessary for gaming currently and for the foreseeable future. By the time that 12GB is needed for gaming there will simply be vastly superior options available and the Titan X will be obsolete from a high end technical standpoint.
