    Raja Koduri Discusses Leaving AMD for Intel in Interview

    AMD managed to catch Intel in the CPU space despite all the inherent disadvantages Raja laments over. Intel was lazy and allowed AMD to catch up. Nvidia, on the other hand, is not lazy. RTX may be overpriced, and the tech may be a node too early, but Nvidia continues to fire on all cylinders and...

    Steam Gives Successful Developers a Larger Cut of Game Revenue

    20% should be the normal cut across the board now, with it dropping to 10-15% after a certain sales revenue is met. 30% is ridiculous. If Valve has the foresight to keep future (massive) hits like Fortnite on their platform, they need to adjust their costs more than this. If they had been at...

    AMD Pledges to Improve Ryzen Mobile Driver Support

    How many times now has AMD pledged better driver support for laptops? They are absolutely ridiculous when it comes to driver support with graphics for end users not on desktops.

    NVIDIA Ampere GPU Rumored for April Launch

    If Nvidia is smart, and unfortunately they are, these new cards will have extremely high MSRP prices until the mining craze drops down. Nvidia is not going to let Newegg and it's partners have the lions share of the profit. Expect the GTX 2080 to be 50% faster than the GTX 1080 and carry a...

    ASUS ROG STRIX RX Vega 64 O8G GAMING Video Card

    So much for Vega and this gen of AMD cards being a fine wine. Polaris gained maybe 5% ground vs. the 1060, and Vega hasn't gained any ground over 1080. Essentially the same speed while sucking down 80% more power and absolutely no headroom. OCing cards on this node has been crappy, but Vega...

    Samsung GDDR6 in Production

    512 gb/s on a 256-bit bus, and 768 on a 384-bit bus. Very nice!

    Will we see a GTX 11xx series in 2017?

    I'm predicting March 2018 for GV104, June or July for GV102- based Titan.

    AMD Vega prices to cost significantly more than expected

    Nah I'm fine with the power requirements. Like I said, commitnto better engineering. Only one of the two companies have issues with the power specifications for PCIe.

    AMD Vega prices to cost significantly more than expected

    With GDDR6 on the horizon, a 256 bit card will have up to 448 gb/s of bandwidth. A 384 bit card will have 672 gb/s. I just don't see a need for HBM in the consumer space if yields and prices are every bit as bad as people say. It's not worth saving 15 watts. A better solution is to just better...

    Vega Rumors

    Oh so bad. I thought for sure Vega 56 would have a clear, albeit small, lead over GTX 1070. But if that graph is translated correctly.... this is overwhelmingly bad. Vega 64 will be 10+% slower than 1080 on average (except for DOOM and maybe one or two other games), and Vega 56 will be neck and...

    Vega Rumors

    I'm guessing half full. Vega 64 0-5% slower overall than a GTX 1080, while Vega 56 is 5-10 faster overall than a GTX 1070. The gap between V64 and V56 will be ~10%.

    Navi Rumors

    Discussing Nvidia architectures aren't nearly as exciting because they're on such a regular, predictable cadence that we already know what we're going to get. AMD on the other hand, it's like a traveling circus that is always different when it comes around. Sometimes it has some awesome stuff...

    Vega Rumors

    Did you think the same thing about Fury X? Because it was priced the same as a 980 TI and a vanilla 980 TI was slightly faster than a Fury X while every single after market 980 TI obliterated Fury X, at similar (same) prices.

    Exclusive RX Vega Interview with Chris Hook

    TGP?! They are failing so bad right now. They don't want to admit TBP, so now they're limiting it to select parts of the graphics card. So much awful fail. So much cover up, so much diverting, so much alluding.... so much for Vega.

    Vega prices released?!? Looks very enticing for real!

    Except an overclocked 1080 TI will be 50% faster.

    Blind Test - RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 TI G-Sync

    It wasn't running at 4k though. It was running at a lower 21:9 3440x1440 resolution (or whatever that first number is), of which 4k is 67% more pixels. Just by extrapolation alone, a GTX 1080 should average over 70fps with the same settings.

    Rather, Vega itself has narrowed its own intended markets. Can't do SFF, can't do notebooks, can't do enthusiast... But it can compete against the competition's #3 best!

    I don't think I've seen a video card getting bashed this much leading up to it's release. It's seriously over before it even begins. RX Vega is DOA except for fire sales.

    Vega Rumors

    Or AMD is comparing it to a $600 after market 1080, which puts Vega at $500. I'd be floored if AMD sells Vega at $400. Regardless, it's going to be the shortest run big GPU ever released. They can't make their money back at $400, and they won't be able to sell at $500. Quite a conundrum.

    Vega Rumors

    GP102 came after GP104. GM200 came after GM204. GK110 came after GK104. GP100 was announced before GP104 came out, but GP100 never saw a consumer release. GV104 aka GTX 2080 will be here before GV102.

    Vega Rumors

    I'm sure Volta will destroy both Pascal and Vega, but I doubt it'll be double perf/w, especially after factoring in ram, circuitry, etc. I'd bet it's right along the lines of real-world 50-60% perf/w increase.

    AMD RTG Hires Hardware.fr GPU Editor Damien Triolet

    Actually, if Vega (484mm2) comes in ony 0-5% faster than a GTX 1080 (315mm2), consumes 100+ more watts of power, and has absolutely zero headroom, then yes they have a huge engineering problem.

    Vega Rumors

    There must be quite a bit of transistor bloat that doesn't help gaming performance for it to be 512mm2. 35mm2 bigger than GP102, currently 40% slower, and consumes 50+ more watts. OUCH.

    PC Perspective Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Live Benchmarking - 4:30PM CDT

    With a HBM2 memory, a ~550mm2 die, and a 300w power delivery / cooling system, there won't be any money to be made if it comes out at $399. After accounting for yields, shipping and packaging costs, AIB profit, e-tailer / retailer profits, and eventually RMA / warranty work, that leaves no room...

    That is a horrible comparison. Most of the world can't afford a $150k Ferrari in their entire lifetime because of these things called obligations, transportation, responsiblity, etc. Most people in the market for $500 graphics cards, can at some point, spend $700 or $800 if they choose to keep...
