AMD, stop milking the 7xxx series and release already the 8xxx series!
There was also the GTO 16 variant of the GTO2 ( probably only distinguished by the fact that some GTO2's were 12 ROP/TMU, 6 vertex+12 pixel shader as well as 16/16/6V+16P versions)
Plus, both Nvidia and ATI used the VE model suffix
met every market level.
I remember nVidia plopping "Ultra" to the end of performance GPUs, like the 6800 Ultra and OC. I used to have a 6800 OC quite some time ago.
Mmmmm, 6800 OC.
Well they better hurry up, I intend to buy 2 7870's within the next month.
ya now they have GTX TI lmao. I recall GL, GS, GT, GTO, GTX, Ultra being different tier cards.
Reading the GF database there is way more ridiculous nomenclatures for GF cards, but reason they had them was to meet every tier of the market.
TNT, i found it very funny
it makes me wonder, is that graphic cards or dynamites?
(out of topic)
personally, HD 7870 OC is fine
I hope your brains won't overheat.
Anyone remember this:
You missed the 660, 660 OEM, 650, 640 OEM, 630 OEM, 620, 620 OEM, 610 and 605 OEM. And that's just for the 600 series of cards. Your brain overheating yet?
The only thing making my brain overheat is the absurdity of this post. :shadedshu
Don't go tacking on an OEM suffix just because the card is reference and not custom.
Don't blame me, I got the list from Nvidia:
You should learn what OEM means.
OEM = Original equipment manufacturer.
All it means is that nVidia made the card, rather than a company like EVGA, MSI, ASUS, etc.
What good is regurgitating data if you don't know what it means?
Last time I checked, Nvidia doesn't make any, they contract another company to do it for them.
Right, they're acting as the manufacturer. There are plenty of other companies that do the same thing once they get the rights to the GPUs.
NVIDIA does sell some NVIDIA-branded cards in retail, but only in US and in just a few major stores (example). Started selling last year, IIRC.
OEM versions are not sold separately, only used in pre-built/branded/store PCs.
Yet neither of those points make a difference to my argument. Covert_Death said that AMDs' performance naming scheme is confusing, yet Nvidias' was not. Does the fact that I can point out Ti and OEM variants in the current generation somehow invalidate my point?
Full name for the HD 7870 is actually Radeon HD 7870 GHz (Edition)... sooo... maybe call it Radeon HD 7870 GHz+ !?
Ya know what enough already, No need to argue. I made my point with the post earlier that NV has more nomenclatures than AMD had but I also understand it covers different price brackets, technically its like there is a card for everyone and not a 1 size fits all solution per se.
Its odd ive never seen an OEM version of a NV card in person before compared to ATI (Not AMD)
OEM is not a variant, that is why your reasoning is flawed. It's like the difference is saying "nVidia GTX 680 branded MSI" and "nVidia GTX 680 branded nVidia." They're both still GTX 680s, but the manufacturer of the card is different.
Wrong. OEM versions are usually different, at least this gen. Some of them are rebrands.
For example, GT 630 and GT 630 OEM
or GT 620 and GT 620 OEM
or GT 640 OEM, which has 3 variants
Now that's confusing.
OEM Edition boards are boards sent to OEM PC Builders such as dell etc, they normally are crippled compared to the non OEM Part
That's what I said:
Aquinus said OEM versions are identical to retail, but that's not the case. OEM versions should be identical, but they're not.
It's good to see people actually looking things up as opposed to pulling it out of their asses. There was a reason I put normal and OEM versions, because Nvidia actually made variant specifications and gave them the same name.
ya at the lower end of the spectrum its confusing because certain models have DDR 3 and higher or lower CUDA count
Yeah. That's how they manipulate performance. Faster memory + less core ~ slower memory + more cores. Cards with both faster memory and more cores reach retail.
Also, some get confused by Ti suffix in higher end.
Separate names with a comma.
