Think i'll wait for the 4Gb 650Ti....afterall, the more RAM a card has the more powerful it is.
It's just a way for AMD to use up the chips that didn't make the grade as full performance 79xx's, renamed defective cast off's.
Hey, 5:4 monitors are perfect for emulation of old games..MAME in particular, no lousy aspect ratio stretching or huge black borders either side...
9 out 10...you've got to be fucking joking,right?
"Low" but adequate single-threaded performance will not appeal to some.
You said it...in this...
Lol..that still makes them slower clock for clock than a Phenom II.
Piledriver cores...which are going in the new refreshed line of FX CPU's, I was just making the point that even these new,supposedly improved...
Piledriver at 7.4ghz...hmmm, about as fast in IPC terms as an inexpensively cooled Ivybridge at 4.8Ghz.
..yes, that's how crap they are.
Too many cards, too many model numbers....all of them overpriced.
Well given just how much the FM1 CPU's gaming scores increased when using faster memory, I'd expect a similar improvement with these FM2 ones,...
nice case, but if I were in the market for a case right now, I really couldn't look further than the new Fractal R4...such an elegant,understated...
Lol..they're still going to market these as 8,6,4 core CPU's...
4,3,2 is more accurate.
Lol...1.45vlts for 5Ghz is high?
I'm having to put 1.47vlts through my Phenom II @ 3.8Ghz..:p
..and MS can fuck right off, hell will freeze over before I put this POS on my desktop.
Must be a typo...or have we skipped to April 1st or something.
"UltraWide 21:9 display"
They launched this format as a high end TV last year, which has just been discontinued due to low sales.
That all depends on the price...here in the UK a 7850 can be purchased for £140, I cant see Nvidia launching the 660 anywhere near that.
Oh, I'm just as critical of AMD's prices as i am of Nvidia's, this whole round of card launches by the pair of them have been complete rip off's.
Compared to the $200/£130-£150 it should be, just as the 660Ti should be $250/£180-£200,
Nvidia's launch prices are just complete bullshit...
So, by how much is this one going to be overpriced.?
If only AMD's engineers were to the same standard as their marketing dept.
Well unless these new CPU's have increased their IPC rate by at least 30% over Bulldozer, which obviously they wont, they're still a waste of time.
One of the consequences of AMD being out of the game these days unfortunately. Intel only has to give you what they want, not what you want.
Perhaps if they hadn't gone down the road of vastly overpricing the 7xxx GPU's, they would have sold more.
They were/are piss poor value compared...
Here's an idea...why don't you just drop the price on the standard 7950, to a level it should have launched in the first place..because right now...
Give me 256Gb for $100 and i'll go for it...until then, no thanks.
And I'm still not convinced of their reliability, many forums i visit seem...
