Upcoming Nvidia GTX 1080 pictured, may not use HBM2

Upcoming Nvidia GTX 1080 pictured, may not use HBM2 It’s no secret that AMD and Nvidia are planning to launch new GPUs in the next few months, but there are still questions about configurations and technology.Initially, we expected these new cards to use the HBM2 memory standard, but the persistent rumor has been that AMD’s upcoming Polaris would be GDDR5 based.

Nvidia’s GTX 1080 redefines high-end gaming performance

Nvidia’s GTX 1080 redefines high-end gaming performance While the GTX 1080 isn’t scheduled to launch until May 27, Nvidia has lifted the curtain on the GPUs performance and technical advances.Unfortunately, Nvidia was unable to supply us with a GTX 1080 in time for launch, so we’ll have to defer benchmarks and performance comparisons for another day.

AMD announces new Radeon RX 480: VR-ready, at a budget price

AMD announces new Radeon RX 480: VR-ready, at a budget price The new RX 480 is a midrange card that AMD claims will deliver dramatic performance improvements in VR and 3D gaming.The RX 480, which will ship on June 29, is a 14nm GPU built at GlobalFoundries.

Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks: Futuremark responds to accusations of bias in new DirectX 12 Time Spy test

Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks: Futuremark responds to accusations of bias in new DirectX 12 Time Spy test Last week, Futuremark released Time Spy, a new DirectX 12 benchmark that takes full advantage of DX12’s features and capabilities, including asynchronous compute.Much of the confusion on this topic is related to what Time Spy tests and how it implements support for asynchronous compute in DirectX 12.

Nvidia Titan X offers incredible performance, at a significant cost

Nvidia Titan X offers incredible performance, at a significant cost That’s gone at the top end — even when the Fury X manages to trade shots with the GTX 1080, Nvidia’s Titan X obliterates them both by 20-40%.If you want the absolute best GPU performance money can buy, the Nvidia Titan X is the best GPU on the market.

AMD’s RX 470 debuts with excellent performance below the $200 GPU price point

AMD’s RX 470 debuts with excellent performance below the $200 GPU price point Today, AMD formally launched its new RX 470, the slimmed-down little brother of the larger RX 480.An RX 470 that offers 95% of RX 480 performance in a smaller power envelope and for $20 less is a winning deal; an RX 470 at 85% of RX 480 performance and $20 less isn’t as compelling.

AMD may delay next-gen Vega, confirms Zen on track for Q1 2017

AMD may delay next-gen Vega, confirms Zen on track for Q1 2017 Polaris would arrive in mid-2016, while Vega, the company’s big GPU follow-up, would slip in at the end of the year.If Vega has really been pushed back to May or June, it’s a serious blow to AMD’s graphics strategy.

New rumors claim to shed light on AMD’s upcoming Vega 10 and 11 GPUs, forecast 7nm Vega 20

New rumors claim to shed light on AMD’s upcoming Vega 10 and 11 GPUs, forecast 7nm Vega 20 There’s a new set of rumors cropping up about AMD’s Vega.That works out to up to 1TB/s of memory bandwidth for a full implementation — and the first-generation HBM implementations that AMD shipped were full implementations.
