No, definitely not. But eventually the user will need the extra power, and even the significantly cheaper 470 will win. Anyone who bought Pascal is either planning short term (just fine), needs the power (1070, just fine), or is simply stupid (majority of buyers).

>SLI/CF literally can't work in DX12
Citation needed. Pretty sure CF/SLI depend on AMD/NVIDIA, DX12 mGPU depends on developers.

>its still on frostbite 3, its one of the older engines still used by a triple a publisher
No, Frostbite 3 is one of the best available engines, both in performance and visuals.

>GTX 1060 is faster than 480
You're a blind fanboy, m8. The card is shit in half the recently released games. Beat by 470, which is about $70 (40%) cheaper.

Yup, i3 -6100 is great for gaming. Nice showing from the FX 8350 (and 6350 by extrapolation).

>Intel was doing worse in DX12, AMD gains, Intel loses. What is the exact nature of this code?
Consoles don't have simultaneous multithreading. Just eight AMD Jaguar cores. So there are probably console specific optimizations that get passed to AMD CPUs.

Oh really? How much does it pay you on weekly basis?

i5 6500 if you don't want to be bothered upgrading. i3 6100 if you want to get a cheap Kaby Lake i7 later.

If you want a hold over upgrade, just pick up Sandy Bridge i7.

>> No.57083473


Oh okay, thanks guys.
I was going to build with a 1TB SSD right off but I guess it's better to spend on a 1TB HDD and 120GB SSD so that difference can go to a better GPU.

I should mention that I'll be replacing my 21.5" iMac and come from a year break console gaming, this is why I wasn't sure if 144Hz 1080p would really be that good for me, since I've already experienced 1080p and I'm really not a big competitive FPS player.

Will I regret not going for a 144Hz?

>> No.57083524

If you're going to go 144Hz then you should also go with a card that can run games at that frame rate. The GTX 1060 is not one of them so a 144Hz monitor with one just a complete waste of money. If you're going to buy a 144Hz monitor, a 1070 is more or less a minimum requirement.

>> No.57083557

Also, don't go with a 120GB SSD, they're going to run out out memory in the not too distant future even if you limit it to the OS and the more essential stuff. I made that mistake and migrated my Windows install (which I got to make Windows builds of some software I'm developing) to a much bigger SSD a couple of months ago.

>> No.57083571

> Will I regret not going for a 144Hz?
Absolutely yes. If you want a good performance from your games, a high refresh rate screen is crucial, especially for games that require quick reaction time.
If a better defintion is more important than smoothness to you wehn gaming, then you can go full meme mode and get a IPS 1440p screen.

GTX 1060 can push a lot of games to 144 or superior fps at Full HD.
For reference, consider my build:
Asus VG248QE
Intel i5 6500
1 TB WD Caviar Blue HDD
250 GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD

I can get 120-150 fps at most fps games I play: Overwatch, Paladins, TF2 and some HL2 mods.

>> No.57083612

Sure, you can run CS 1.6 with a 144Hz monitor on a GTX 750, but there are much more demanding games out there than all of the ones you listed. Even Overwatch can be tweaked to run will on some properly potato powered machines meaning that you being able to run it at 100+ FPS really doesn't mean much.

DX12 in this game is obviously a fucking mess.

>> No.57084282

It really depends on more than just cost of the GPU. It depends what games you play and intend to play. Whether you are are using a Freesync monitor or intend buying Freesync or not. SLI and CF but nobody should be using either of those anyhow. Until mGPU is actually used in games (most likely never).

Right now I'm kinda pissed that most Freesync monitors are complete shit compared to G-Sync (crappy refresh ranges. Shitty TN panels etc). The new AOC Agon is IPS on G-Sync and TN on Freesync for instance. WTF is up with that?

>> No.57084312

I think the idea is if you're already paying a premium for G sync then you'll spend even more for an IPS.

>> No.57084357

Yeah, obviously it's early days but this game's use of DX12 is quite obviously worse than what other titles which came out before can get out of it. ROTTR for instance makes excellent use of DX12, I had drops to 40FPS at 4K in DX11, DX12 was perfectly smooth 60 all around (on 2x1080). There's no excuse for DICE, especially since they were one of the very first devs to start banging on the low level API drum.

I only played it like 1-2 months ago when it was cracked. 4790K @ 4.7, 1080 SLI ~2GHz and a few areas had drops to ~40FPS with low GPU usage in DX11. DX12 was perfectly fine and never dropped, at the same settings which were close to being maxed. I have no idea how bad it was at release. Have you actually played the game recently, or at all? The in-game benchmark also doesn't really represent the worst case scenario you can get when actually playing the game.

But that's basically the point of DX12 - to remove driver and CPU overhead.

Bretty much. There's about a 70% scaling from the 4300 to the 8350.

Probably has alot to do with the consoles as well. Bulldozer was specifically meant for highly threaded integer operation with little branching. As the consoles are using the derivative mobility version, makes sense the games are programmed with that in mind.

That is because maxwell and pascal basically doesn't respond to voltage - they run as well as they will ever do on stock voltage so the need for better pcbs and cooling is not there.

Conversely kepler and GCN based cards do respond well to voltage so there is a justification for some of the more premium cards based on those chips.

>> No.57089291

>here's no excuse for the game not being at least as fast as DX11 on NVIDIA (if the same hardware with different software performs worse - the software is obviously shit)

The issue is that traditional DX11 "optimization" is the HW vendor rewriting visually (nearly) equivalent shaders and storing them in the driver to replace at runtime whatever the original devs wrote.

DX12 is a thinner layer between engine and hardware with no feasible way to insert rewritten shaders, so Nvidia/AMD can either give guidance to the dev on improving the shader in a way that helps everybody, or they can just shut up and do nothing.

In principle game devs can write entirely separate shader code paths using architecture-specific "intrinsics" (basically GPU-specific assembly code), but this seems to not be very popular yet.

My MSI RX 480 Gaming X runs at 1400 with +96mV when doing 3D work (I use profiles in Afterburner). It will run all day without a hitch at that clock speed and does not get hot enough to worry about (76c on average). When Idling I let it sit at 1266Mhz with a -60mV undervolt.

It's not the best silicon obviously but it is possible.

>> No.57090312

I can get a replacement for my GTR for this exact one. I think I'll give AMD another go, this or MSI 470.

For reference can you take some screenshots of your configurations?

>> No.57090391

No point really. Just grab Afterburner and experiment using 3DMark stress test loop (watch the clock speed it should stay at it's highest with no dips on Afterburner's graph). You may find at stock settings you'll get some throttling. If you don't plan on overclocking try undervolting to see if it helps with the throttling. Watch for glitches and lockups. Finding the balance between no throttling and how much juice you push (or not push as the case may be) is the most boring part. Potentially I could go higher than 1400/2200Mhz using Sapphire Trixx software to go over 100mV but I prefer having Afterburner profiles to keep it undervolted when idle which Trixx does not support.

>> No.57090416



Trixx is dangerous software for scrubs due to allowing for extreme overvolting ( it lets hawaii hit +200mv for example) and thats card killing territory for most coolers. I personally have a 4 slot thick cooler on my 290x so +200mv is something I can control but make no mistake thats still balls-to-the-wall.

reminder that dx12 in this game is broken and that nvidia's dx11 performance trumps amd's dx12 performance once again. it's warhammer all over again and it seems to be a recurring thing with amd sponsored games. it seems like amd are focusing on making nvidia lose performance in dx12 than making their own cards gain performance as amd cards aren't increasing in performance at all across these games but nvidia performance tanks. typical amd gimping desu.

>> No.57090532


To be nearly 50% faster therte must be some god tier scaling going on as Intel's hyperthreading generally speaking doesn't scale that well (even factoring in the difference in cache between i5 and i7).

IBM's POWER on the other hand (while not a architecture for us pebs) does get that or greater scaling.

amd can admit anything they want, if there was 1 dead motherboard besides that filthy as fuck one that 'died' due to the soda that dripped on it, that image would never not be posted.

we only have 2 reportes of motherboards dieing, one that we can show it wasn't the gpu, and one that we can't because no images. It may overdraw but it was a non issue from the get go.

>> No.57091060

The 1060 isnt bad, but it's also not good either.

Casual sometimes play a low end game - 460

Friend has it, it got him by, he is getting a 480 if this card isnt up to snuff, but lightning took out a few of his computer components recently and you have to piss with the dick you have, you got 150$ at most, you get a 4gb 460

You play games often but don't care about top end graphics, 8gb 470, this will likely tide you over for a while. and being only slightly slower then a 480 gives it a good push for 50$ cheaper then the 480

you want 60fps at 1080 with no question, 1070 right now.

you want unquestioned most powerful, 1080 or titan x are the kings, though the fury x does go over a 1080 every now and then.

really, if you want a 1070, just get a 1080 and go on the resell when something better comes out camp, overall you pay about the same per cycle as someone who gets a mid range card, but you have the best of the best... its the only option that makes sense if you go nvidia because they are not price performance cards.

in terms of gaming, a properly defragged 7200 hdd in 95% of the games is equal to an ssd,

in the few games that demand more then a hdd, an ssd that saturates sata is equal to the fastest m.2 or pcie drive.

there is some things to be said about bad engines that stream every texture the moment you see it (looking at rage and wolfenstein) but largely a hdd thats defragged will do just fine.

>> No.57091127

the nature is more so it uses all the resources its given, in most games on 11 most games dont use half the amd cores or poorly utilize them at best, which is why brute forcing speed makes them better on intel because core for core intel at some points was almost double the speed of amd, but when used properly the 8 'cores' amd gives you offsets intels speed advantage.

multi threading, even in applications that use it sometimes only returns 5-10% in some cases gives negatives, the applications that almost double performance for hyperthreading are VERY specific. its why in the early days turning it off gave you a performance boost.

>> No.57091187

its texture size. I have a 280x, texture sizes are starting to eclipse 3gb now, and with no texture compression, the card suffers more then nvidia counterparts.

these are uniform tests, so my guess is if you turned down the textures you could get playable

I know in the beta my 280x was able to do 4k at around 20-25fps (the resolution scaling was fucked, so i thought 100 was yea 100% of 1080p) when i turned it down, my cpu shit itself but my gpu was something like 30% utilized at between 30 and 40 fps with severe drops due to cpu.

>> No.57091208

It's simple really...

AMD saw that per thread performance was beginning to suffer from worse and worse diminishing returns (i.e you'd get less and less extra performance from bigger and faster cores) so they decided to get around this by just having more cores than bigger ones. Intel on the other hand just stayed the course and continued making bigger and bigger cores even thou they were getting less and less performance out of those extra transistors. Unfortunately for AMD most devs couldn't be bothered to properly multithread their code, so Intel won with it's theoretically slower chips.

>so Intel won with it's theoretically slower chips.

Thats not how cpus work. You are only ever as fast as your single thread performance allows for because - unlike gpus - not all workloads can into moar coars. AMD's plan as that the hit to single threaded would be offset by going wide (i.e moar coars) which is fantastic for datacentres but not so for desktop usage cases.

Its the same reason why most xeons are clocked seriously low but offer into double digit physcial cores.

and yet we have how many benchmarks on forums that show the load times from hdd to ssd to m.2

there is an upper limit to how fast a game loads, and only in games with horrible methods of streaming textures do ssds beat out a properly defragged hdd.

or are you perhaps thinking i'm saying run your fucking os off the hdd and the game off the same hdd along with every program you may have open? because that's fucking retarded.

get your boot/program drive to be ssd, 256gb will do you, then get a 4-8tb drive for games only, even the 5200 rpm drives read at around 150-180gb now, or if you really want a fast drive, get a 3-4tb 7200 rpm drive for 230mb read speeds, if they are defragged, seek time wont be as much if an issue at all.

Hell the only recent game that scaled with speed of the drive was fallout 4 and i hope to god we all know that engine was an abortion that will only be used 2 times.

>> No.57091356

they are clocked low more due to heat generated and power draw than its better to be slow. It just so happens that the applications they target take advantage of all the cores, and all the threads to their absolute max.

All games load faster on an SSD

8 of the 16 games tested loaded significantly faster.

Educate yourself.

>> No.57091747

Most ssds came with mirroring software, that's the only way to sure fire do it if you don't want to reinstall the os.

There may be other ways, possibly a program that only targets the os and symbolically links everything else so you choose what to put on it.

personally, just reinstall the os on the ssd, you will want a 120gb ssd at least, 256 will be safe, I put a fuck ton of programs on my ssd, and the 120gb drive still has room, but the breathing room of a 256 can't be beaten.

Full disclosure though, Im looking at the 1tb m.2 drives for my next computer, not really any faster than a sata drive, but 240$ for around 8 times the amount of space? how could I realistically say no.

battle field, after ssds came round, stopped letting people who load the game faster into the game faster

fallout 4, I cant even begin to fucking imagine what the hell is going on there.

Just looked up what hdd he used,
Western Digital Blue 500GB SATA III 16M
todays drives run at 180-300mb read speed when not fragmented, my 4tb hitachi runs 150-180mb

I will tell you now, I have never had a near 2 minute load time in fallout, closer to 40 seconds, but this is the worst game for load times, its the outlier.

keep in mind, it's somewhere around 200-400mb read where it doesn't matter if you are faster, you won't see linear gain anymore, and newer hdds, the denver platters, have reached that point.

when you want to argue that hdds are significantly slower at load than ssds, come with a video/benchmark that has more then 3 outliers on it. That said, I'm an advocate for a large ssd so you can put an outlier on it and not care, just not an advocate for ssd only game storage, especially since games are starting to be 50-100gb big, a fast hdd will serve you better then a ssd unless you got money to piss away.

sincerely fuck 4k for that bloat, fuck it hard.

Id honestly recommend just a fresh install, get the absolute most out of the drive from the get go then move over a crap ton of legacy installs.

Its not nearly as time consuming as you would imagine it to be, back your shit up, prepare for the move, move.

the hardest part for me was taking chrome from one drive to another because the programs fucking retarded, but beyond that everything should be simple. if you game, they largely don't need to be reinstalled, however possibly need to run dependency applications they came with or make a symbolic link.

Their benchmarking are so good, they labeled a R9 290x as 290 Crossfire.

Anyway, Nvidia is shit at DX12 but it doesn't really change the performance profile of their cards that much. A GTX1060 will still provide a 1080p/60FPS experience.

at the absolute worst, an ssd has about 1000 write cycles, they would mean you need to write 240tb of data to the drive to kill it or even begin to kill it, realistically, good ssds start to die around 600-2000tb of writes. average use will never see that drive die on you... fuck, the sata standard will die before that drive does though normal use an no failure on physical side.

thats a 20 month time frame.

so in that 20 month period of time, you bought a 980 for 550, possibly got 500 possibly got 600$ when you sold it if you know how to sell it right.

you then got a 980ti for 650$, if you got the 780ti you likely sold it for almost msrp so these two performance upgrades are within the original cost of the 780ti, then you sold you 980ti for 500-550 and bought a 1080 founder, for 700, and if you were smart you then sold it once you saw how much people were willing to buy it for and picked up a used 970 or possibly an amd card to tide you over till the 1080 cost calmed down, by then, aftermarkets, for less then your initial 700$ 1080 purchase.

see, if you aren't stupid, you pay that initial price once, and have an old used back up card for if you are ever without a gpu. the cycle from 780ti to 1080 could have actually netted you a profit if you weren't retarded.

>> No.57092504

I should also point out, I don't personally do this, as I don't like selling things online, to much risk in how ebay operates for me.

I personally buy mid range, and use it till its no longer viable. my 280x is just hitting the point where the ram is becoming an issue in games, also, my system demands 1gb-1.5gb of vram idle for some reason, so an 8gb card is something i'm looking at.

>> No.57092718

you're forgetting about tax. once you buy a gpu, you lose the tax amount instantly. if you buy a $500 gpu, by the time you leave the store, it'll have cost $600. so you can never make a profit selling a card you paid full price for, unless it became a collectors item or you got a stupid good deal

and honestly, I can't see the point of the X80 series. a 1080 isn't enough for 4k, and a 1070 can do 1440p comfortably. 980 was 30-40% more than a 970, but only performed maybe 20% better
