Go Down

I feel absolutely terrible to see a huge project that thousands of really smart people put so much effort into fail so miserably. Oh god bulldozer.

RIP, AMD. We will miss your competition in the CPU market.

think gigantic, massively brute-force overengineered, yet pitifully slow and hot

the benchmarks for it with games are below the 1080 I think.

Apparently the RX Vega will be "better".

sometimes below the 1070, even

And clock-for-clock, it's somehow even worse than the Fury series. A two-year-old GPU architecture designed by AMD itself. goonish

i mean how is that even possible

the head engineer of vega should probably be fired

rx vega is going to exactly the same chip

so unless the drivers hugely improve in four weeks, i doubt it'll be much better lol myface;

it's quite astounding that amd's cpu and gpu teams seem to have been role-reversed befuddlement

suddenly amd's cpus are rather competitive, while their latest gpu series is set to be the blunder of the decade lol

Snowy

From the interviews and stuff I've read after benchmarks came out, they said drivers will be optimized for the Vega. But they're really harping on the RX one being better. Who knows.

they also want to sell their soon-to-be-proven-terrible product, so of course they'll frantically claim that it's going to be better while scrambling to eke every last drop of performance out of it until the very last second

We'll see what the benchmarx say. scarecrowdood;

i mean right now AMD cards are all $$$ because of shitcoin mining. some how, nvidia cards are cheaper.
