Hi everyone!

 

I'm a VR game developer and expositor, which means I develop games and stuff, and I go in various fairs (like GDC, Gamescom, and various others, mainly in Italy right now) showcasing my rig with an HTC Vive / Oculus Rift with my games.

 

Right now I have a big problem: my rig is running with a HD Radeon 7850. Yes, I'm running VR Stuff at 75 / 90 fps with this card. Awesome right?

Unfortunately, I have to picky select stuff, I cannot run a lot of games. I'm in dire need of a change of card.

 

But this moment for me seems troublesome. Nvidia cards have been just released. I'm definitely more AMD oriented, with big hopes for HBM memory, better DirectX12 support and stuff like that, but I've also heard the high-end offers from AMD will come later in the year... I definitely cannot wait so long

 

Got any ideas or some more information about this? I'm not really well informed, maybe with your help I can get a better idea on my possibilities.

 

Many thanks!
