Windows 10 giving consumers pause.
Over priced cards. Waiting for AMD's new card to see what's what.
its ther closed software / tech that put me off a 970 upgrade
Reports are that the majority of the new AMD cards are again rehashed products so this is the third gen.
Yeah that will be a shame if true. Previous rumour was far more exciting. Either way I need a new card asap and the only one that would be good at my resolution is the 980 (or Titan which is too much). And I don't wanna buy a 980 at that price. Maybe when AMD's comes out it will shake up the prices.
I have a 980. I'd love to play something that actually stretches it.
If your not gaming above 1080p a 980 is and will be for a while overkill. Even at 1440p there's few games that stretch it. 4k is a different story.
That article was unfortunately improperly written. Those are different variants of the GPU. So for example, the OEM R9 380 will not be the same thing as the R9 380.
Yeah the are rehashing the lower and mid cards but the 390 will be a new card. And probably a water cooled version too. I hope it is good, and I hope it sorts out the prices of nVidias cards.
Don't see how any card pre water cooled can be cheap. Most pre water cooled gpus are about £200 above the standard card.
Anyone but me wonder why it's pre water cooled.
R9295X2 - cheaper than the titan x and GTX 980Ti - yet is water cooled?
Well it's certainly cheaper than the Titan X but do we know if it's cheaper than a GTX 980Ti?
I thought the 980Ti has yet to be released or the price announced.
I assumed it was just an option for a high overclock version and there would be normal fan cooling too.
