    I remember suggesting they brand Hawaii... Iceberg.
    Might make more sense doing it this time around with the WCE.

    ATI Rage Fury MAXX, dual chip card. I think there was single chip Pro variant too. In any case I have baaaaaaaad memories of Rage series. I had RageIIc and it was 3d deaccelerator and drivers sucked big time (games rarely rendered properly).

    I've had both SLI and Crossfire now, my experience with SLI has been way better. You just have to make sure the cards don't throttle (which is easy to do) or it goes ape shit.

    I somewhat hope DX12 makes multiGPU scale great all the time for both companies. I somewhat hope it also doesn't... because I am afraid I won't be able to stop myself from buying 4(+?) GPUs. :D

    I've avoided this thread for a few weeks now. Do we know when the 390x will be released?

    And also nice Titanic picture. I might use it as a background at work, describes what management is doing to my company.

    Yeah, the Rage Fury Maxx was a poor attempt by Ati to beat out the superior Geforce 256 SDR by attempting the first SLI solution (it wasn't called crossfire then) anyone had done since the Voodoo II.

    It was kind of terrible.

    Problem is that based on the latest rumors we still don't know if the NEW Fiji XT GPU's are actually 390/390x, or if 390/390x are 290x badge engineered models on steroids, with Fiji XT "coming soon, few weeks" :p

    At least we should know more soon.

    Saw this on Twitter. Think this might be AMD's 4GB ace in the hole?

    Macri explicitly said their implementation doesn't require developers to do anything. His words were "OS and driver".
    I'm not reading too much into it for now, if you were in his position what would you say? Seems like the easiest answer.

    I don't care if AMD doesn't release a single GPU until the end of June as long as we know the specs/prices for the full lineup @ Computex.

    I would venture to say an evolved version of the compression engine already found on the R9 285.

    Makes sense. ATI used to have a card called the fury. Which was pretty damn good back in the day

    tainted boooooooooo. The card should be called zeus because its going up against the Titan and zeus overthrew and beat the Titans in a 10 year battle. Its a fitting name imho.

    Tainted's point is that the Fiji should stand on it's own merits and not for how it performs against it's competitor. I tend to agree.

    It would be an embarrassment if they named this card after the Titan. Very immature.
    AMD needs to focus on themselves, when was the last time Nvidia even mentioned AMD? "The lion does not concern itself with the sheep" and all of that jazz.

    If Fiji is better than the Titan X, the card will speak for itself.

    Doesn't make sense why they would need a developer API then...

    Lol.

    Awesome in the same way the GTX480 was awesome then :p

    On my highly over clocked stock cooler 470, the label actually started to melt and slide off of the casing :p

    Ya Zeus was Krono's son, but I'm pretty sure Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon overthrew Kronos and the titans so I think that's where the reference comes from. Either way that's a good example why even if AMD wanted to market their card against the titan they should steer clear of using Zeus.

    That's what happens when GPU companies start naming their products after crap like that. Hopefully AMD doesn't try to follow suit.

    They should name the new card Scarlett Johansson.

    My word, that is ridiculous.
    Has science gone too far?

    They put a heatpipe (and fan) on the vrm/vram exclusively.

    Seen a lot of suggestions so far, this one is my absolute favorite.
    Radeon Ruby. It just seems weird they already have the girl mascot named Ruby.

    Otherwise perfect.

    we all know preorders prices are never correct.

    Newegg had the 290X reference at $9,999 right before they released

    lol

    wasn't really that bad, I'm just being dramatic, they didn't even have power connectors on those cards.
