    The cheapest 770 here costs 290 euros here. The cheapest 280X costs 250. And of course 770 is not faster "in most cases".

    280 here costs on average 20 euros less than 760.
    There is nothing new from Nvidia to put next to 270X
    270 costs a little more than 750Ti and it is way faster
    Even 265 that costs the same as 750Ti is faster
    260X is faster than 750
    260 is cheaper than 750.
    250X is faster than Nvidia cards in the same price range.
    The same is true for 250
    and 240

    Dude, you are aware he owned a Titan, and is currently running a 780ti? You just made yourself look like a complete tool, and you and people like you are the reason this forum is getting worse.

    I read this last night and :roll:

    [​IMG]

    My Intel mobo, 3930k and hefty 780ti Classified suggest otherwise.

    And it is pretty universally accepted that when you call someone a F***** without good reason you are one yourself. :slap:

    We need to team up like double dragon, bring Freedom too! But seriously, yeah, so many people are incapable of reading a post in a neutral manner. It's becoming a PITA with a lot of people too ignorant or with their bias guns set all the way to 10.

    I agree, there is no reason to upgrade to powerhouse GPUs untill 4k becomes more affordable

    I think the time when "4k becomes more affordable" will be close to the end of next year, that is - 2016 will be the year of 4K.

    Windows 9 (because Windows 7 and Windows 8 are relatively poor with high DPI software)+ new GPUs (if we are lucky on new manufacturing processes, that's what I am more interested in, rather than Maxwell on 28 nm, MEH) + some new CPUs. ;)

    :)

    Hey U got a really nice piece of ingeneering over that cooling device... guess the water is oversalted (don't know if that is what is said like... too salt!)

    Hey... hate to do this, but I need help on a topic and I'm new here... have any Idea, on how to filter members so I can research specifically to people who are interested in programming with vb.net??

    thnks anyway...

    Little point in using overclocking as a pro or con when 90%+ of graphics card users don't overclock to be honest, if everyone did overclock reference designs would cost us even more as there would be little market for overclocked or special edition models, just a personal opinion though.

    I believe all the current prices have stemmed from AMD not being able to compete mano a mano with nVidia since possibly around the times of the X1950 series of cards. Sure, current AMD cards offer great performance for the money, but tend to draw much more power, overclock less, produce more heat, etc, compared to their Nvidia counterparts (debatable on a generational basis). There is also the perceived (real or otherwise) greater reliability and stability of Nvidia drivers.

    I'll leave this here.

    There is also the fact that each companies SKU tiers seem to conveniently slot in between each others' price range - again, none go head to head. Sure they try to undercut each other, but it almost seems there is some sort of gentleman's agreement in place. Maybe I'm just paranoid....

    That has been the case for a few years- at least since Nvidia and AMD got smacked for price collusion. The illusion of a price war from a few special case SKU's ( HD 5830 vs GTX 460 for instance), but with very little actual impact to the overall product stack (and ASP's) of either company.

    Why you haven't pointed this?

    AMD’s Full Blown Hawaii XTX Core Confirmed – Is this the R9 295X with 3072 SPs and 48 CUs?

    Next day...

    I have mentioned similar tactics in amd threads ie look at this not them, they all do it.
    Many a purile jab at me here but The facts still are.
    Here is a chip
    Its got plenty of memory
    Its at ALPHA stage
    You bet it needs power
    And it still could be anything
    Especially given nvidias recent roadmaps, that's not me being biased, that's me saying the way it is.

    In India (not everywhere in India, just a few places I checked) the 280x is around INR 3k cheaper than the 770. Cheaper, but not enough imho, given the higher power consumption and largely without the sexy backplate as on the Asus 770 DCU II.

    I have been seeing the talk about the GTX 880 (GM 104/204) having a 8 pin and 2 6 pin power connectors and the talk of it being up to a possible 375 watt TDP when you add it all up. Take a look at the TDP of the GTX 260 and GTX 460 and GTX 680 (really should have been called a GTX 670). Nvidia had to invest some time and money into redesigning the Maxwell for the 28nm process due to the situation at TSMC so you can be sure that they intend to release an entire series of 28nm Maxwells over a period of several months in 2015 to recoup their investment and then we will have the 20nm Maxwells and those will be the performance powerhouses.

    I think the principle difference people are referring to, is when it's Nvidia speculation there's a howling and gnashing of teeth from your direction (Also not sure what the power input has to do with it, and why it's such an issue considering it certainly isn't with the same people WRT to 290X, 290X Crossfire, 295X2 )....but someone posts an obvious BS wishlist (Hawaii 4096 cores, 20nm, etc etc etc ) and an obvious silicon floorplan of an APU, and you give it the full flag waving treatment
    ....even after the source has been debunked
    Maybe some middle ground between the unbridled optimism (for AMD) and the most pessimistic outcome possible (for Nvidia) might be closer to reality?......although much less entertaining in retrospect.

    I disagree .
    Some people have too much free time on a Friday night my comments in this thread were neg only slightly but I suppose you read into it what you will.
    Id hope you are all right because imho we need 4-10x the gpu grunt we have and progress is progress but this pic is intriguing but not informative.
    I obviously don't approve of the miss quoted stuff smokey.

    Its nvidia they wouldn't put a card out that uses 375watts for a single gpu. That would just be outright stupid for them. AMD I would believe it more from them to do it as they have and are will to use what ever amount of power to push their chips to be competitive Nvidia (on GPU side) and Intel (n cpu) side.

    That's because of stupidity of end-users who otherwise pretend to be able to do many things. :D :eek:

    I have been using ATi Catalyst for 8 years now and never ever had any problems with it.

    Everything seems to depend on the quality of the device-behind-the-keyboard, and since I think we can assume AMD drivers are more sensitive to your PC environment, like installed MS Visual C++, .NET Framework, etc, it is indeed some kind of a proof of this claim. :)

    I refuse to believe you've used any kind of software for 8 years and never encountered a single problem.
