Right Now: No
My thought is that they will cater to the mid/high level users and put out a new version of the 290 and 390 cards at lower power and at a lower price. Then, a few months down the line, come out with new type of Fury(x) card that will dominate!
Just a thought. It would be nice to get the consumers to have more dedicated GPUs in the home and gain more market share.
I think they will. Moores law says what, every 18 months computing doubles, right? I for one look forward to it. Hopefully this Polaris sneek Peek on the 18th will give us more info.
gtx1080 benchmarks. including dx11 and dx12, if anyones wondering abou tthe dx12, the gtx runs it fine.
heres another I found a bit later, not overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080: Review - 21 Games Tested at 1440p & 4K - YouTube
I think that Nvidia is scared of what AMD got in terms of new GPU architecture. I also think that they released 1080 earlier because they are scared that their product won't be able to compete against AMD and want to make as much money as possible before their sales drop with release of new AMD GPU serie.
I dont, nvidia has billions. The 1080 is strong compared to anything amd has out right now, even in dx12 & Vulcan plus amd's driver support is pretty much sucking as of late...
I've seen no benchmarks to prove dx12 is going to amount to any performance increase either, actually any benches I've seen dx12 slows systems down with amd or nvidia gpu's..
I'm wanting to see the new polaris based gpu's, that'll show me more of what the new smaller chip can do..
