AMD Radeon RX Gamma XT GPU: A 26 TFLOPs Monster With 1.5 TB/s of Bandwidth And 21.2 Gigarays Ray Tracing Support. For comparison, the rtx 2080 ti does 10 gigarays. This nasty boy is gonna be targetting fucking 4k 120fps!!!!!!!!!!!!! If this don't make you say "aw shiieet dude", what does? Bruh. I wish I was rich enough to buy this shit when it comes out. Probably gonna cost like a million dollars.

Is this worth a thread? I don't fucking know. But I like looking at spreadsheets about tech, even though I usually have no idea what the numbers mean. I just like looking at them numbers in the spreadsheets and comparing them, it feel good. wish I was smart enough to understand the numbers, then i'd be an enthusiastic savant and not just regular enthusiastic

Anyway, can you believe it?!?!??!! TwEnTy SiX tErAfLoPs WOAH DUUDE eat my ass with barbecue sauce

don't get me wrong, AMD is indeed working on a card that has 80 compute units and is going to be silly powerful almost like the one in this particular april fools joke, which is why I believed the joke like a goddamn FOOL.

Am I literally the only one here who's actually planning on spending my trumpbux on rent and utilities? I haven't actually gotten on unemployment yet and I want to pay off my May rent early, and if I can afford it my rent for June also. I mean if I actually won like $2,500 I know that I'd immediately take that chunk of money and sink much of it into rent. If I won even more money like $10k+ I'd probably just sink most if not all of it into paying off the entire rest of my lease so that I could basically live rent free for as long as possible and just have to worry about shit like my internet and electric etc bills. And then if I really came across a big chunk of money I'd just start paying off every single dime I owed anywhere to anyone for any reason, not be blowing all that shit on GPUs first. Fun things are for after your rent and debts are paid.

A lot of people are really dumb when it comes to dealing with money. People get mad at me for living comfortably but I'm just better at investing. Heck, I'm not even smart or anything, I'm just not stupid enough to waste what little money that comes my way on a fucking gpu while trying to survive a pandemic.
Besides, the US administration is counting on them to waste it anyways. The US is a debt nation, anyone who actually bothers to save his money is at a disadvantage. The economy punishes you for acting responsibly cause whatever you save drops in value every ten years or so. I have to keep my captial in stocks just to make sure in doesnt lose it's value.

Money is an illusion. Invest in bullets, bottled water, and canned food. Those things don't lose their value when properly taken care of. Your stocks disappear the second people lose faith in keynesian economics. Which seems likely to happen in the near future, considering the destruction that this debt based economy has begun to cause.

Listen, now is the perfect time to invest If you play your game right. you can walk out of this with huge chucks of cash.

>8K support

So... are we done with resolution increase now?
I know the "640k oughtta be enough for anybody" hubris thing, but I think for any normal format displays... We're done. 8K is actually significant overkill for even pretty sizeable monitors.

We're down in the sub-perceptible area now. Maybe large format stuff like movies and ground-level jumbotron screens go bigger but I think we've made it guys.

Maybe newer display link specs go higher refresh rate and incidentally hit higher resolution support for large-format displays for free but this is as far as I can see it going.

I do't know. If you own a high end 8k projector you'd probably notice the difference between 4k and 8k in a gigantic 420 inch projection quite easily. And in VR 8k is probably not even high enough a resolution, since it's a display glued to your face. There's plenty of use for comically high resolutions, you're thinking of TVs and monitors, and these are displays of the past, maaan. But I don't blame you for not even remembering the existence of such expensive tech like projectors and high end VR since who the fuck has the money to buy this shit. Fuck, some people have tripple 4k projector setups for pc gaming, can you imagine being this fucking rich? And these people avoid paying taxes like it's the black corona

With VR it's really about the optics and how much they can concentrate the detail where it needs to be.
Periphery needs a ton less. It's a completely different area as far as that goes. We've already got anti-aliasing techniques that focus on the central view and basically give up toward the edges, which I'm pretty sure requires special hardware support, like the Nvidia 20 series does it but the 10s don't if I recall correctly.

TBH computer hardware is for custies right now. I'm waiting for that modular shit that lets you plug together 5 CPUs and 10 graphics cards on series chained motherboards.

There's no reason they couldn't write architecture that allows this, other than making it unprofitable for their future prospects. Why bother buying a brand new $2000 Ate My Dick 9000000000+ graphics card when you could get three of last year's model for $200 each and get better performance?

Fuck. ffffffffffffFFFFuck, this is too good, and in a really bad way. How could amd possibly compete with this? No competition means technological stagnation and insane prices... like what we've been seeing through this whole decade in gpus.

These prices may look great if you compare the performance of these upcoming cards with the performance of the current cards, but that's because the current cards are extremely overpriced and waaaaaaaaay too expensive. Nvidia's flagship cards used to cost 650 dollars (2008's GTX 280), not 1500 dollars, and it's not because they're getting more expensive to make because they're certainly not getting 3 times more expensive to make. It's almost entirely because they have had literally no competition from AMD on the high end for almost decade (last time AMD had the performance crown was with the HD 7970 in 2012, and it was 550 dollars!!!!!!), so they can get away with charging these obscene prices.

People who are not enthusiastic like me about tracking these prices and looking at gpu specs spreadsheets all day for no reason have no idea how ridiculous the current gpu prices are. This is literally what it is: something (something being the most powerful graphics card you can buy) that used to cost 550 dollars in 2012 now costs 1500 because of nvidia's domination.

I think the flagship card is the 3080, at $699. And is supposedly twice the performance of a 2080. That is pretty fuckin solid, and that's 50 dollars more than the gtx 280.

Whats the point of buying one of these if all the PC ports run maxed out on trash cards anyway since they are developed for underpowered consoles?

I play everything maxed out on my 1070 just fine. Probably cant do that with my RDR2 or Flight simulator and a few AAA games but is that really such a big deal?

When next gen drops it will be getting even harder to run things. I wouldn't be surprised if next gen consoles are on par with an rtx2080

You definitely can't run RDR2 or Flight sim even close to maxed out. Can't run Control maxed out. Can't run BFV 1440p maxed out(with stutters). Won't be running Cyberpunk 1440p maxed out. Can't play Doom Eternal 1440p maxed out at high refresh. In fact you won't be playing many games at all in 1440p high refresh.

If we look at something like Death Stranding, you're probably JUST barely able to 1440p/60fps on high settings, and that game came out nearly a year ago and is very well optimized.

The point in buying high end GPUs is to play upcoming games at high resolution and or framerate. I'm not trying to shit on your GPU or anyone playing at low res/refresh it's still nice, just saying there's definitely a reason people will be buying these and I wouldn't be surprised if they sell out very quickly

I'm waiting for the 4060. Maybe 4070. I think that's when it's time for me to step up from 1080p. Higher resolutions will gradually slide down the market.

I did the whole fastest PC build money can buy thing and it just ran hot, failed to scale well and half the parts all died after 3 years because even with one of the best cases on the market the were all 80C+ under load. In related news the power draw was a smidge under 1kW at peak.

Low power draw, parts below 60C under load without fancy cooling, low noise, 5 years without any part failures. Once you go midrange you don't go back.

Having said that I am intently watching the market. The better this gen, the higher the bar for the next one gets set and so on.

Also hoping ATI bring it because Nvidia are cruising. I went back to Ati with this build and regret it though. Runs hotter, shitty drivers, etc. I usually end up with ATI because it just happens to be best at whatever price point I'm building that time but in 2015 the GTX970 was the best card for me and the drivers, running temperature, power draw, noise, everything was better than faster or slower ATI GPU.

No, in hindsight I could have used water cooling, it wasn't OC'd and the air cooling was pretty good shit. This was 10 years ago, I forget which CPU cooler I had but I checked a lot of reviews and it was one of the highest performing ones for my CPU (which had a TDP of 165w on stock settings), the case was a HAF 932 (which I only stopped using recently because it's so impractical when I need to move it) which has an enormous amount of cooling.

It was good for things like hosting games with 5 friends and playing without any slowdown and shit like that though.

There are liquid cooling set ups that come in a box at this point. You just install it and attach it like a fucking PSU.

At the same time sometimes you get unlucky with parts. I've only really had trouble with RAM just dying on me but yeah, hard drives and cards and all that shit will just die sometimes.
Nariko - Thu, 03 Sep 2020 12:28:47 EST BJtLvEfC No.755850 Reply
Yeah, in the end though pretty much every part went wrong at some point. And it still would have chugged 1kW of power, heated my room up in summer and crossfire and SLI would still have scaled negatively with a lot of games. 3 230mm fans and a 140mm with a mesh case wasn't enough which is crazy though, a lot of hot air came out the case so I wonder how many fans the water cooling system would have needed. I know it's a more efficient conductor but it could have just ended up carting water around the case at 70C especially as it'd have needed it for the 2x350W graphics cards too.

My last machine lasted 5 years without anything dying (well no, the storage hard drive died 4 months in, but THAT was bad luck). . The difference between 120 and 80 FPS isn't noticeable to me as long as there aren't dips into single figures during gameplay, and for me I'd rather have a cooler room and the money in the bank. All that cooling, more powerful PSU etc are just additional costs of having that much power.

But I give many shits about high end GPUs because if they're good generally the whole set is good. Even if there's better options at my price point, they will drive the price down by forcing their previous "XX90 huge cock edition" down the market and thus shoving everything else down as well.

wait for amd's response before you buy it. there are rumors that amd's bew rdna card will either match the rtx 3080 or come close, and it will certainly undercut it in price. Oh yeah, and itll have hardware ray tracing too

Same. 3080 will be plenty of performance for me and I want to max out Cyberpunk on launch, not really interested in waiting on AMD. I'm suspecting if I did wait, at best it'll save me 200 dollars and have less performance, or save me 100 dollars and be comparable. I'm impatient and not worried about such a small amount of money.

I mean if you're gonna blow 1900 bucks on a pc, waiting around for months just to blow 1700 with less performance just doesn't seem like much in the grand scheme of things.

Come mow my lawn and the 200 bucks is yours brazil

heres what the amd rx 6000 cards will actually look like (no blower style cooler this time, sweet!). Im starting to think that theres gonna be an amd model thats faster than the rtx 3080, because it seems like the 3080 is only around 25% faster than the 2080ti, and the next gen amd cards have been rumored to be much more powerful than that, like 30% or even 40% more powerful than the 2080ti (theres even a leak from many months ago where it outperforms the rtx 2080ti by more than 30% in an obscure vr benchmark) I don't know, I think yall should stay tuned for the amd reveal next month before rushing to buy any rtx 3000 series card, because amd seems to be very confident in what they're cooking.

93 fps in RDR2 4k, wow


what has AMD done that seems very confident since 30 series reveal? I haven't kept up but competition is always nice. Unless they perform better and have their own DLSS I don't think I'll care though

The fact that their rx6000 cards are going to be manufactured at a more advanced node, TSMC's 7nm, as opposed to Samsung's 8nm which is what nvidia is using. Meaning that they'll probably beat the rtx 3080 while being much more energy efficient, meaning that you won't need a 750 watt power supply (which is what nvidia recommends for the 3080) to use them and they're probably not gonna be as hot and loud (oh yeah, and your power bills won't be as high). Also, the higher end rx6000 card (the one that'll compete with the 3080) is gonna have 16gb (as opposed to 3080's 10gb) making them much more future proof. I think that 10gb is really not gonna be enough for the games that are to come, at least not at 4k.

About the DLSS, it's almost certainly going to be available on AMD cards in some form at some point. I say this because there are rumors of PS5 and series x using DLSS at somo point, and they use the same architecture (RDNA2) as these next amd cards. That being said, the DLSS performance is probably not gonna be as good, because RDNA2 gpus don't have tensor cores -- the cores that are used for deep learning stuff.

It's kind of a mixed bag if you factor in the probable lack of DLSS at launch, but I think they're gonna age much better than the rtx3000 cards.

some important numbers about the rtx 3080

Notice how massively cpu bottlenecked it is at 1080p and 1440p. The card is a great deal, but only at 4k at the moment, since even the highest end current cpus are not keeping up on lower resolutions.

If you play at 1080p or 1440p it would make much more sense to wait for the RTX 3070 or for the RX 6700

I think those are either fake bids by the seller or fake bids by people attacking scalpers to drive up the price to an unrealistic amount the seller can't sell. Although all it takes is one rich asshole to make that scalpers year

Probably, stupid though. If the next gen consoles can do it all for less than the price of the card they're banking on PC Gamers being dumb about it and panicking. Given what the next gen consoles will deliver and that this gen in particular only offers a little more they need to bring the prices down, not up. You can buy a whole console for less than the price of a 2080 and that console will deliver similar performance your gaming rig with that plugged in.

While PC gamers are dumb as hell, you've got it backwards.
If they didn't release something before the new consoles drop, people would be making your calculation; I can get a 2080 for 900 bucks, or I can get a console that does 95% of the same performance for half the cost.
All those people who buy the console are less likely to buy 3080s when production actually ramps up.

By releasing early, even though they only had a supply of like six cards, nVidia gets more people willing to hold off on buying a console because they're comparing it to a PC with a 3080 instead of a 2080.

I just waited at microcenter basically all night. I was 12th in line but they only ended up getting 10 cards. I was completely devastated because I took time off work to stand around all day and had nothing to show for it. I was walking back to my car, basically on the verge of tears when a guy ran up to me and said he ended up buying 2 cards and that he'd sell me one. I was like "What? You'd really do that?" He just nodded his head and showed me both of the graphics cards. "How much do you want for it?" He stared blankly at me for a moment and then mumbled "about tree fiddy". Well it was around that time I realized this guy was about 500 feet tall and was a crustacean from the plethazoic era.
