aint these from the old 680 before they decided to rape us and charge high end for mid ranged parts?
honestly i wouldnt trade up as its a side grade perse, just wait till a gen or 2 down the line less they refresh both product lines before then.
I feel like we're in an Antbox. Scrabbling over tidbits of information while the great Wiz watches amusedly from above.
BF3 51FPS with 4X AA
Wizz got 63 driving a few more pixels.
Dirt 3 86 FPS with 4X AA
W1zz got 145.8, again driving a few more pixels.
That graph is screwed, or perhaps they meant the 7870.
I wouldn't really call 230,400 (a solid 10%) a few. But yes, those numbers are likely fake.
Until its comes from Nvidia directly or official benchmarks... all i got to say is -->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjKVGB6JEfs
I just had to remake that graph starting at 0:
take that marketing
Im not holding my breath on this, Id rather see numbers from Wizzard instead of some marketing slides
So basically if all you play is Civilisation V, then you must buy AMD card.
I think the FPS for CiV 5 is already high enough to smoothly enjoy on a 570 / 6970. So it would not matter You'll be above 60 most of the time.
I really hope Nvidia fails with the 6xx Series... if they fail their cards a few times more, we maybe see equal market shares between Nvidia and AMD soon, man that would be great!
Either nVidia really messed up with the GK100 and had to use the GK104 to fill the gap, or they actually did make GK104 so damn powerful that the ridiculously overpowered GK100 isn't needed this generation, and they're choosing to release it next turn around.
If the first case is true, then the GTX 680 will likely come slightly above the HD 7950, as previously thought. If the second case is true, then I'll eat my socks.
How about no? That's horrible for the consumer!
The discreet GPU market is pretty evenly split, almost at 50/50 so I don't know what you're talking about.
More like 65/35 actually.
Nvidia has been losing market share for a while now man. Hell they just lost ALL the console market for the next gen. Granted they are still a VERY big player. Just not what they used to be.
haha i know, i know. Just trolling the graph lol.
Get yourself some hot sauce to go with the socks. You'll need it man... soon.
Will you also eat your hat if it beats HD 7970 in average performance @ 1080p?
Haha I love these graphs the thing they don't tell you is that with a 7970 or 680, 90% of all your games will be playable at 60FPS+. I never understand why people make such a big deal about it.
Actually, as owner of 120Hz monitor I would really prefer games to run at constant 120fps which is impossible with current gen single cards. Even 60fps is tough to get in some games.
Actually you are completely wrong. Nvidia has 65%, AMD 35% of the latest discrete card market numbers, which is the only arena they both compete in. Nvidia gained market share over the last year in this market. In the lucrative professional market, Nvidia has above 80%. Integrated graphics , where Nvidia does not compete, Intel holds the biggest share by far.
Thats what we call in the real world a LOSS of market share.
But you and I just switched MM...they'll be fine!
from JPR February 28, 2012:
As usual, it was a two horse race between AMD and Nvidia. The latter saw graphics cards shipments increase by 3.7% from Q3 2011 to 63.4% while AMD-based boards decreased 3.6% to 36.3% for the same period. On a year-to-year basis AMD lost market share by 2.7% while Nvidia gained 2.9%.
Vendor Q4 2011 Q3 2011 Q4 2010
AMD 36.3% 39.9% 39.0%
Nvidia 63.4% 59.7% 60.5%
Others 0.3% 0.4% 0.5%
Honestly who cares, let's just see how much faster this 680 is and how high priced it will be... Knowing Nvidia they will try and rip off the consumer some more...
