It doesn't even need that much knowledge to understand these simple facts.
Just looking at benchmarks and comparing AMD cards to their Nvidia rivals in different resolutions is enough.
AMD generally puts more bandwidth on their cards simply because they can't compete head to head and need more...
I think average framerate in a demanding scene is much better than too much focusing on Lows.
1% and 0.1 lows can be just a random stutter during gameplay that can happen on any GPU.
When I'm benchmarking myself I see terrible 0.1 lows on some games and based on that you'd think the experience...
Dear Nvidia, for the love of god put more bandwidth on your bloody cards.
I'm sure with a wider memory bus "almost" all Nvidia cards could perform 10~ percent better at 4K.
Vega 56 beating the 1080 at 4K is purely due to the bandwidth limitations.
It's the matter of workload and also memory support will be improved.
Assuming that the X570 boards may be supporting up to 4000MHz of speed, that's still plenty of bandwidth for plenty of workloads.
And even if you're memory bandwidth bound in a specific application, it's not like it wouldn't...
Console Optimization in GPU front is nothing more than cutting each and every corner to achieve the target framerate.
Just like the current enhanced consoles most devs will use Dynamic Resolution Scaling, cut your resolution in half in demanding scenes and call it 4K.
There's not a single AAA...
5 percent ahead of the 2070 means roughly 10% above a 64. I doubt it.
Navi is the polaris replacement,
It needs to be 75% faster than polaris to beat the 2070.
RX 480 was 40~% faster than the 380X and I expect the same here, 40 percent improvement over the fastest polaris based offering.
It might sound a bit silly but the best, yet the worst way for console makers to compete with the PC platform and the best way for AMD to compete with Nvidia is to not support RTRT.
First of all, these consoles are going to be in the market for 6 years or so, that means they're gonna suck really...
The 7nm EUV is just a different solution to reduce the manufacturing costs, as far as I know.
It's not necessarily more efficient than the current Non-EUV process.
And keep in mind Nvidia did gain a lot more performance by going from 28nm to 16nm than AMD did so Radeon VII might not be the best...
It's not a different world from MSI, maybe Asus but not MSI.
All brands have some shitty and some good products at the same time. The Z390 extreme form gigabyte does have the best VRM on any Z390/X470 board.
It's not bad just because it's from gigabyte.
If ray tracing is going to be a serious thing in game industry then it might actually take even longer than a looooooong time to move from 1080p.
but honestly, 1080p with proper Anti-Aliasing is good enough for PC Gaming; Considering the average size of monitors.
