I think they said that the audio will be on the R7-260x, R7-280x, and R7-290x. I think the 260x was supposed to be for the <$300 market.Ok, so let's get this straight.
They're releasing the $299 card without any new features, with the exact same performance as the 7970 Ghz, that you can buy today for <$280....
and not putting the DSP on the 280x?
So they're giving the $300 market NOTHING?
Of course they are, this is a sales pitch to investors. Not as much for the gamers. It's cool that they're letting us see this because every company over hypes everything no matter how small it is.That's pretty cool. I don't hate the idea of a decent audio solution on a graphics card, but they make it look like it's the most important thing to happen to any gpu.
i thought the industry learned paper launches would not be tolerated any morelol, thats a little extreme.
You do know that the famepacing only happens in Crossfired cards right? Single cards are not effected by frame pacing (at least not beyond nVidia sinlge card frame pacing since there will always be a small difference between each frame)OK I'm going to say what everyone is thinking here...
Do the new cards have a hardware based frame pacing mechanism (and/or have they finally gotten a RELEASE DRIVER based solution working exceptionally)? To heck with the on-card audio, I'll take more consistent frame rates over audio any day, especially if it works with crossfire. Personally I'm not going to be too thrilled if I drop $600 on an R9-280x and I get not only runt frames, tearing, and microstuttering, but now also periodic runt/garbled/stuttering audio.
just pretend this video webcast never happened. solved!i thought the industry learned paper launches would not be tolerated any more
imo every should do the same boycott any thing that uses a paper launch
and im sorry but thats what this is AMD doesnt get a by just because the did some silly stage show its sill just the same
Yep, I do know. My point is still valid since the [H]ardcore among us will care (like serpretetsky just said).You do know that the famepacing only happens in Crossfired cards right? Single cards are not effected by frame pacing (at least not beyond nVidia sinlge card frame pacing since there will always be a small difference between each frame)
i guess i never really understood what's the big deal. Oh well, I dont want to derail this stream of posts too much.last time ether AMD or NV had a paper launch EVERY tech site tore them a new one
now they get a pass?
They better announce a release date before the end of this stream.worse yet they only gave a PRE ORDER DATE FUCK THAT
last time i pre ordered a video card it end up being kinda crap after the first month compared to what came out just a few weeks later
and they didnt even give a price for there top end card total bullshit Kyle needs to call them on it
