It will be a long time before we can determine for sure whether AMD's Radeon 300 generation is a success story or another unsuccessful attempt by the company to stop NVIDIA's rival, but it is already possible to say 'well done' to the chip maker from Sunnyvale - despite Countless Leaks Qualifications Organized an exemplary launch event, and even managed to surprise us all with a number of unexpected and exciting products.

Series 300 - Love / hate relationships with users

Let's start with the least surprising part - The Radeon 300 series The new Is not really new, but is fully based on the cores of previous generations, with only my volume More generous and slightly increased working frequencies separate it from what has been on the shelves for a year or more.

What really makes us raise an eyebrow is the unstable pricing the company gives to old-new products: R9 390X with 8GB of GDDR5 memory received a highly cost-effective price tag of 430 (which is more than 100 of the price of the R9 290X cards you can find in stores right now) R9 380 with 4GB of Actually got a rather pleasant and competitive price of 200 dollars.

It is likely that we will see all the updated models align with their prices (whether officially or unofficially) in accordance with market demand and supply conditions, but it is difficult not to feel that, Try to use some of the brands to market a product at a significant profit to consumers who are less involved in the technical data below the glittering sticker.

From now on, Fury is the name of the game

As expected, the center of the stage took the new Fiji core tonight - and the Fury cards that are based on it. The Fury X Will be the senior representative, who comes exclusively with liquid cooling and with a full and formidable Fiji core that includes 4,096 performance units, 8.9 billion transistors and of course HBM memory with exceptionally large bandwidth. Availability will be "very soon" according to company representatives, and the price will be $ 650 - just like the best single-core card on the market so far, In GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

Next to the Fury X will be the Fury model, which will head against the standard GeForce GTX 980 with versions Air side with other versions Liquid, slightly less performance units and slightly lower work frequencies - and a $ 550 price tag.

B- Did not provide too much technical detail as part of the announcement, but it seems that what we have estimated is what it will actually be - users who want maximum performance with no compromises will probably prefer the Fury models of , While users who want to put an emphasis on efficiency, cooler temperatures and optimal power consumption alongside the capabilities will seem to lean toward the green manufacturer.

Fury X will offer tremendous power, Be sure to minimize the large power consumption that you will probably come along with, and force the company to market it only with liquid
One of the biggest chips we have ever seen in the world of graphics processing - but remember that it saves all those GDDR5 chips on the printed circuit

R9 Nano - Surprise tonight

AMD's newest product was the third-generation Fury family. It turns out that those compact video cards we have seen Number of leaks In the last two weeks they have just opened, when a separate model called the R9 Nano, which will also be based on the core of Fiji (probably with much less active units but with the same 4GB memory as the older brother) will be even smaller and more efficient than any other product Of the company has always been. Performance for the watt is twice as high as those of the Radeon R9 290X (!), According to the people of .

The Fury Nano claims to offer an unprecedented jump in efficiency - even more than we saw in NVIDIA's Maxwell 2.0
The Nano purports to offer unprecedented jumping efficiency - even more than we've seen on NVIDIA 2.0

The company revealed almost no details about the Nano (only about 10 inches long), but stated that it would offer At the level of the R9 290X - at half the power consumption as stated, and at half the size. We cannot declare that this is the ultimate gaming card before we know the price of the pleasure, but we can estimate that the R9 Nano will soon become the heart of all the smaller gaming system builders, and at the same time the manufacturers of the Machines and other consoles.

Next generation console, AMD version

For dessert, Project Quantum - version of The computer has a relatively small (but relatively powerful) gaming gamut (absolute).

frx3frx2

It's called Quantum, and it does look like something that violates the laws of physics that we know from the computer world

The computer, which looks a bit like the PlayStation 4 console between its two parts, is a nuclear fusion, which means really cool, will include a pair of R9 Nano cards and a processor from All of which would be cooled by a closed liquid system. The system will be offered to Manufacturing And will market to consumers through them, with the target price at $ 1,500, and the promise is for some 60FPS in the maximum settings in any title that exists today in the market, without compromise.

crazy? Maybe, but probably no more crazy than a card with a pair of really big Fiji cores, briefly mentioned and coming this fall - perhaps as the first card for gaming at 8K resolutions?

What is the product that impressed you most during AMD's big evening? Tell us in comments.

updating: A first look at the printed Fiji Dual Card board, which is designed to deliver Sensitivity of 14 or 15 trillion floating point calculations per second (TeraFLOPS).

  1. Before I buy a ticket from the new and do not know who against whom AMD VS NVIDIA…
    Not over NIS 2000, but strong enough (from 3GB or higher in memory, then performance, quiet and efficient cooling and reasonable power consumption for performance ..)

    I will also wait for reviews mainly regarding the cooling reference ...
    thanks for sharing.

  2. AMD's big problem is divided into two parts:
    1. Power in relation to performance. When comparing NVIDIA cards to theirs, NVIDIA is significantly more cost-effective.
    2. Collaboration with software and gaming companies. NVIDIA collaborations are much tighter and make it easier for manufacturers to run games that run optimally on NVIDIA hardware. Even with standards like G-SYNC and FREESYNC, competition is in NVIDIA's favor.
    AMD should think about their strategies anew.

  3. To 1
    If this is your budget and you are looking for the strongest ……
    Go for 780TI!
    He will take good care of you for at least two more years until Pascal V2 arrives

  4. Tear me up that in the first video the person talks about the 4K resolution and the latest games and what they show in the background that he says it… counter strike… .. Find a good example: D

    Look at how the card deals with TW3 and not with CS!

  5. The most impressive card is the nano, assuming it performs at the 980 level and above.
    Besides, you have to wait for the bans.

  6. Soon I will be in Hong Kong and I have an eye on the 380 to experiment with it a little bit especially that the price is not terrible and hopefully in the East it will be even better

  7. You have 980, why do you need the 380?

    Try it on some performance tests and I also build a second computer that no longer has a video card so it might be the designated card
    Based on your experience this card will work with the 400 provider?

  8. Provide 400 / 450W probably only with some weaker card like R7 360.

  9. The 360 is really close to the 960 performance. 360's competitor 380 (R9 285) and 400 will be a little borderline ..

  10. The 360 is really close to the 960 performance. 360's competitor 380 (R9 285) and 400 will be a little borderline ..

    Can you explain a little more?
    What's more powerful for gimping 960 or 360
    On a gigabyte site that will probably buy the 960 if I decide to go on it says that 400 is needed so I'm okay no?

  11. What is the relationship between 960 and 360?
    Wait a little, let prices stabilize and tickets arrive because they are not physically present in any store
    Anyway, then look at the performance tests that will begin to pop up and decide. Or request a recommendation at the right time
    Have enough information.

    I do not know if the 960 will be a brilliant decision because it seems that at its current price it will fall between the chairs
    Since there is already the 380 in less than 1100 shekels (not physically available of course) and I guess the price will drop in the near future.
    I'm not sure and maybe I'm wrong, but as I said you'll wait it's not a long time.

  12. What is the relationship between 960 and 360? Wait a while, let prices stabilize and tickets arrive because at the moment they don't physically exist in any store anyway, and then you'll look at the performance tests that will pop up and decide. Or ask for a recommendation at the right time to have enough information. Don't know if the 960 will make a brilliant decision because it seems that at its current price it will fall between the chairs as it already has the 380 for less than NIS 1100 (not physically present) and I guess the price is going down soon. I'm not sure and maybe I'm wrong, but like I said, wait a long time.

    It is important to note that I will buy the ticket from Hong Kong

    What a disappointment AMD just dug the grave for themselves.

    They did it again and unashamedly, taking an existing card that put more memory into it and increasing clock speeds, and here we have a new card…

    I had hoped so much for an interesting and refreshing change, but I was wrong.

  14. AMD chose the worst "4PLAY" possible for the "Fury" series which I think is the only thing that should have been invested in it.
    (2XX) will continue to fall in price as it has been in the past year and let everyone focus on what is important.
    AMD create a smoke screen for themselves precisely when they need to stand out, not really clear. On the other hand "There is no such thing as negative advertising ..."
    More interesting are the bangles of the adapted 980TI, the beauty of the OC they brought there.

  15. Really ... what a Kevin drama. Moving to someone at amd. Wait for the new tickets before you apply your makeup.

    When hundreds of thousands of customers think like me, it will move them.

  16. True, it's a pretty disappointing remake, but you don't take into account anything important - most people
    If you do not want to pay 1700 for 970 and look for the next downward adjustment, say 1000-1200, the options available to you are 960 and its equivalent 380 Tickets), so if the 380 is cheaper and maybe even a little stronger why would not you buy it? Because he 's Rimike. The person does not care if they call the 380 or 280 or ZNUMX he wants the best value for money in the given budget.

  17. The only thing a sign figured out in the context of video card design, is that you just have to consume electricity .. Anyone who pays for a high end card will also buy a quality supplier. And certainly not taking the single shekel into account at the end of the month .. So why not maximize performance on power bills?

  18. True, this is a pretty disappointing remake, but you do not take into account anything - most people do not closely follow any new pips in the hardware world, and for example if you do not want to pay 1700 NIS for 970 and look for the next downside, say in NIS 1000-1200, the options Available are the 960 and its 380 counterpart (except for deals / promotions on previous tickets), so if the 380 is cheaper and maybe slightly stronger, why not buy it? Because he's a remake? It doesn't matter if you call the 380 or 280 or 80 card it wants the best value for money in the given budget.

    The 380 is not superior to the 960, it gives the same performance roughly and with AMD you run the risk of gaming incompatibility and warming noise etc.
    In principle, even 7950 stinks more lucrative than the "new" 380 that performs similarly in 500 more.
    7970 costs NIS 200 less than 380 and makes the impression that again 380 has no advantage whatsoever.

    It looks like maybe the prices in the country will still balance, but this series is not particularly exciting for the middle market.

  19. Okay, you've decided that 380 is not superior to 960, the ticket has not yet reached the stores and at a starting price it must have been already cheaper on average than the 960, in addition to the two and a half comparisons on the network at the moment where it is slightly better in most games. Maybe before you release statements of pure fanboism you will wait a fortnight.
    7950 is not a stinky card at all, and I have been using AMD cards for several generations now and I have no compatibility or shoe issue, there are games that work better if NV cards and vice versa, that doesn't mean they don't work fine in both cases.

  20. Okay, you've decided that 380 is not superior to 960, the ticket has not yet reached the stores and at a starting price it must have been already cheaper on average than 960, in addition to the two-and-a-half comparisons that there is currently a little better in most games. Maybe before you release pure fanboys statements you'll wait two weeks. 7950 It's not a stinky card at all, and I've been using AMD cards for several generations, and I have no compatibility or shoe issues, some games work better if NV cards and vice versa, This does not mean that they do not work fine in both cases.

    There are benches already, I didn't decide things based on gut or the other funny word you mentioned.
    7950 is already an ancient card in terms of hardware and it is sad that it is still better than cards AMD has just released.

  21. The only point that will probably make me move to nv in the next generation is the lack of amd support in cf in windowed mode. When Pascal left, I guess I will upgrade to two / three nv cards for the first time in years.

    Why three? And who cares if gsync works in window mode? Full screen games

  22. You have explained here a thousand times to some people including me that there is no advantage to three cards, pure money wasted .. And it seems very strange to me not playing full screen .. hurting the experience

  23. Ahh ... I thought one screen. I'm dying to see a game on 3 The 1440 screens look as different as seeing a movie at home in a movie theater

  24. Antique or not it still delivers great performance so there is no point in calling it "stinky".
    I am not arguing that performance is disappointing but it is not relevant at the moment, you quoted me as saying that the 380 is not worthwhile against the 960, and that you take into account that it is already cheaper and that prices are still down, and that it is already stronger and sometimes respectable according to the latest Tom's hardware review. , And you set it before the card landed here at all, it kind of sounds like "fanboys" ..
    These two tickets may not be worth buying, and it might be better to look for some previous generation deal or pay extra for the cost benefit of another model, but again, that's irrelevant to what is said between the two cards.

  25. What surprises me is that there are bits and pieces of them to sell at all.
    For a few years now 7970 / 7950 are no longer manufactured and are still in stock.
    Don't recognize such a situation in high end cards (at least at the time).

  26. Project Quantum
    
    

    brute force, as AMD likes.
    If this is the equivalent of their answer to NV's SHILD I'm less impressed.
    As a device designed to sit in the living room and fit in nicely, it lacks the elegance and subtlety of the shield, and recently there are unique options that really make it a console fountain.

  27. You are comparing an Android device to a computer with the most powerful hardware on the market today: screwy:

  28. You are comparing an Android device to a computer with the most powerful hardware on the market today: screwy:

    right. They are completely different devices and are designed for different purposes, consumers, audience and price segment. But each company chose its own direction.
    I just see it as another example, one of many, of the company's approach to every product it produces.
