THE GRAPHIC CARD THREAD
AMD-Radeon-Graphics-Trends.jpg

 

NVIDIA-GTX-660-GTX-650.png

 

Seeing that the thread is being re-purposed for a more flexible discourse on the topic of graphic card(s). I take full responsibility of maintaining the thread to the best of my abilities. Any and all help is accepted (with credible source) and will be appreciated.

 

DRIVERS

AMD

Latest stable driver release -- AMD Crimson Relive Edition 16.12.2

Latest BETA driver release -- AMD Crimson Hotfix 16.1

 

nVidia

Latest stable driver release -- WHQL 376.33

Latest BETA driver release -- BETA 352.63

 

  • For AMD the drivers are derivative from HD79** series of cards and Windows 10 64-Bit.
  • For nVidia the drivers are from GTX10** series onwards with Windows 10 64-bit.
  • Both sites feature an auto-detect feature in-case you are unsure of your exact hardware / software dispositions.

Also , it's getting late really. Make a formal announcement :furious:

 

End of September is when it will out. This will be a soft launch.

 

November the retail pieces will hit the market in force.

 

Also, I don't see anyone getting angry at nVidia when they delay their announcements.

Rumored list for next Never Settle bundle.

GRID2

Company of Heroes 2 -- carries, no AMD credentials on retail package

Total War: Rome II

Splinter Cell: Blacklist -- Already a TWIMTBP title

Lost Planet 3

 

Battlefield 4

Raven’s Cry

Watch Dogs -- TWIMTBP title

 

About the GTX750Ti, I think it is an aberration. It has to be GTX760Ti because the GTX650 series will be succeeded by GTX750.

AMD "Hawaii" R9 290X Specifications Revealed

Here are the first set of specifications for AMD's next high-end GPU silicon, on which the company will no doubt carve out several SKUs from. Codenamed "Hawaii," and slated for unveiling on the 26th in, well, Hawaii, the 28 nm chip is what AMD will take NVIDIA's GK110 silicon head-on with. It is based on AMD's second-generation Graphics CoreNext micro-architecture.

 

With an estimated die-area of 430 mm² (18% bigger than "Tahiti,") the chip physically features 2,816 stream processors (SPs) spread across 44 clusters with 64 SPs each (a 37.5% increase over "Tahiti"). The chip features four independent raster engines, compared to two independent ones on "Tahiti." This could translate into double the geometry processing muscle as "Tahiti," with four independent tessellation units. The memory interface of the chip is expected to be 384-bit wide, based on the GDDR5 specification. Given the way TMUs are arranged on chips based on this architecture, one can deduce 176 TMUs on the chip. The ROP count could be 32 or 48. The chip will feature hardware support for DirectX 11.2, including the much hyped shared resources (mega-texture) feature.
