According to the report, AMD graphics card manufacturers andNVIDIA Plan to double the graphics memory on their leading mono card slots this month. As we already know, versions with eight gigabytes of graphics memory for AMD's R9 290X cards already exist from Sapphire, but now we get information that PowerColor and Club3D will also start selling similar cards, And with the GTX 970 and.

The amount of dual memory that AMD will begin offering on the most powerful single-core card probably comes as a response to the GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards, based on NVIDIA's new Maxwell architecture. This is not the first step the company has taken to deal with NVIDIA's new cards earlier this month AMD cut The price of its flagship card, the R9 290X, more than 200 dollars, a drastic step, which is now revealed only as a first step.

High-volume memory for the R9 290X and 970 / GTX 980 cards will definitely help them cope better with higher resolutions, but in performance tests the difference between Maxwell's new flagship device In front of the flagship card of He was visible. Prices for the new cards have not yet been discovered, but it can be assumed that prices will be slightly higher than the current four gigabyte cards, or at least a drop in prices for existing cards and the introduction of new cards into the existing price tag.

  1. Oh how goofy. Before arranging the scaling of more than 2 tickets there is no point in memory. No more FPS came out of it (at least at that level would justify the significant extra money they would charge for another 4GB-DDR5).

  2. sounds logical
    This will at least create more of a gap between 980 and 970
    Maybe not enough people bought 980 because of the value-for-money ratio
    Now a difference in memory maybe people who have debated between 970 and 980 will really go for the higher and more expensive

    The question of whether memory addition really will affect FPS and at what particular resolutions
    Maybe it's only important to 4K?

  3. If it is a reference / normal like the picture above it is not worth it it will warm up and very noisy !!! (If they are already doing a version with TRI-X or any other cooler, it's the main thing)

  4. 8GB may be important only in certain cases of 3 * 4K, this is not a necessary requirement at all from such a set of screens. Lack of computing power will be more of a problem than memory space.
    In the embedded video, they show (3: 10 minute) three 4K screens running from the 980 SLI. Two cards with 4GB per card.

  5. Dear hwzone, why don't you go to a messaging system like: disqus (one for all other sites)

  6. ] [RIGHT] [COLOR = # 333333] 8GB might be important
    Such messages have a place.

    You talk about a large array of tickets that definitely matters. Using two cards memory drops to 2 per card and 4 to 1GB per card

    Definately not.
    Information is duplicated on all tickets.
    In memory each card and copy card of all information.

  8. I doubt how much more 4GB memory will help 980 - 256 bit card, traffic just isn't big enough
    On the other hand in hunger games for 290X memory should get a very nice boost.

    Anyone who talked about SLICF
    When running 234 cards in an array containing 4GB memory then it's basically like a very powerful card with 4GB memory (no increase or decrease of memory)

    exactly. So if I give the cards a big calculation, they can copy the same file size and no more and only have to work, which means the efficiency (in heavy calculations) will be divided into four

  10. exactly. So if I give the cards a big calculation, they can copy the same file size and no more and only have to work, which means the efficiency (in heavy calculations) will be divided into four

    Ahh ... I didn't understand you at first.
    Because each card does the job on its own but divides the frames between them.

  11. Compression is good and pretty but doesn't make up for nearly double the bandwidth in 290X.

    Yossi, SLICF works like this (in a very simplistic way), every other computer frame card - meaning you are currently in the game and you suppose 100FPS - you see every 0.01 seconds a new image that was just thought. When you are in the array you see a picture from the #1 card every 0.02 seconds and also a picture from the #2 card every 0.02 seconds - that is, every computer card is basically 50FPS.
    Each card needs information that stores the VRAM to calculate the 50FPS on its own and so you stay accurate with the same amount of memory.

  12. The matter with memory traffic and resolutions goes here and there. History shows that AMD cards usually close gaps with increasing resolution, which is nothing new.
    It's an argument that opened at the time with GTX 260 versus HD 4870.

    Is this a significant reduction in performance? I do not think so

    Just because there seems to be no special effects even when moving to the 4K resolution and our sons, this is not a resolution for today's hardware, perhaps the one that will come in a year.

  13. Another gimmick to squeeze more of the end of the generation ... AMD has to respond somehow ... Just sad the whole attempt to sell more and make us laugh ... I have a feeling that someone has caught the Israeli head there ...
