I heard it can be an issue with around 4k with 4gb standard on the Fury.
Does anyone know what resolution you can comfortably do in dx12 crossfired?
Its mostly down to anti-aliasing. if you use Wattman to turn it off. 2k should work great. A lot of games grab as much vram as they can but that doesn't mean they use it. 4K will work well with some games and not with others How much VRAM do you need? - Tech Tips - YouTube . Geforce GTX 970 3.5GB + 0.5GB VRAM Explained - Tech Tips - YouTube . GTX 980 Ti vs R9 Fury X SLI/CrossFire Face-Off - YouTube . These websites show its not that clear-cut on how much vram you need, on another note GTA 5 will bottle neck on most cpu`s when you use crossfire.
I have the fury nitro how do u use Wattman on crimson 16.9.2 , thanks
Sorry when I said Wattman I meant to say the crimson drivers, the Wattman part of the driver will only work with the new RX cards. Here's some links that will give you the basics of using the Crimsons driver, .Radeon Settings: Crimson Edition Overview - YouTube , AMD Radeon Crimson Review - The Good, The Bad and Beautiful - YouTube , AMD Crimson Software - How Drivers Should be Done! - YouTube
There's a couple of issues. UHD and 4K requires a lot of CPU horsepower, a 4.5ghz AMD or 4ghz Intel processor is a must. Then there's the problem of multiple GPUs and DirectX 12 not playing very nicely with Crossfire and SLI, so much so that nVidia even eliminated SLI from the 1060, it just can't take advantage of AFR the same way it can with DirectX 12 to push out big performance increases the way it did with DirectX 11. TomsHardware puts it best
Beyond that explanation, though, game development is going a different direction with post-processing and compute-oriented effects that aren't friendly to alternate-frame rendering. And with DirectX 12, more control is shifted to ISVs eager to get their content out as quickly as possible. That means much of the work Nvidia pours into its drivers is circumvented.
DirectX 12 uses its own multiple GPU technology, which isn't as good, and is not universally supported. Now that being said, if you're like the majority of people and don't use Windows 10 and therefore not DirectX 12, a pair of Fury cards will chug along happily at UHD and WQHD, the 4GB VRAM is HBM, not GDDR5, so there's much more memory bandwidth and can handle high resolutions.
Can you tell me please, how much difference does a good motherboard make? I mean does the pci 2.0, 3.0 really make any difference?
I have an amd 8 core running at 3.5ghz
You think I should upgrade?
Was thinking of waiting till the new AMD chip cpu comes out at the end of the year..
pci-e 2 is not saturated yet so you will see no improvement verses pci-2, pc-e3 or pci-e4 with graphics card throughput, but on the newer motherboards what you will get is ddr4 for higher memory bandwidth, usb 3.1 and thunderbolt for faster file transfers, m.2 massive performing pci-e solid-state drives verses the ssd`s currently in use, Built for Windows 10 so shouldn't have the driver problems coming from an older Windows platform, more pci-e memory lanes supported and a general improvement in chip design. Wait while Zen appears then you can make an informed choice to go with either AMD or Intel. Intel chips should drop if Zen makes a good impression in the market place. You probably talking mid to late 2017 before we can get a full range of Zen chips , I cant see Zen costing less than 2/3rds the price of intel and maybe a bit more. New Zen or Intel motherboards. Basically more extras, compatibility with new hardware, higher memory bandwidth and boards will have a longer useful lifespan and hopefully less driver problems.
2 Fury in CFX should be able to do 320x200 fairly good and maybe some games with 640x480
The new update fixed it.
