>> No.57352708


if you're buying something like a 1060 or 480 you're buying performance that was available two years ago, the GTX970 was available for $250 for 1 year after release which is what those two cards the 1060/480 go for right now.

The 1070 has performance similar to the 980Ti for $200 less than what the 980Ti used to cost even at the lower price including sales.

Mainstream cards needs to have a ton of features that's available on high end cards. Those include social features such as Shadowplay so the average dudebro and underage can share their epic frags on their networking sites and also include features for the frugal but serious prosumers - the folks looking to work on Adobe suites and general CAD/3D modeling with CUDA.

AMD fails at doing both of those things and the only thing it can really do is core gaming, which fails at also with poor and delayed driver support.

Not OP, but building a new system to do some gaming after many many years I have some games that I need to play.

I have 1 problem with Nvidia, which is called G-Sync.

Why do those monitors cost atleast 150 bucks more than a monitor that supports Freesync?

>> No.57352858

Nvidia would rather use their own proprietary scaler sync method over Displayport's standard adaptive sync, which was never an AMD technology to begin with, AMD just refers to it as Freesync in their drivers, since each vendor is responsible for making it work with their cards. There's more money for Nvidia if they just make their own that requires their own special hardware in the monitors to pull off

Will it run the witcher3 on ultra 60fps solid?
Nope didnt think so.
Thats a gpu for the fat dribblng kids who still live at home with mum, theyre a bag of shit

Which makes it quite bothersome desu.

If I buy a G-Sync monitor, I am gonna be stuck with Nvidia.

If I buy one that supports Freesync, I will be forever bound to AMD.

Why isn't there a monitor which supports both?

>> No.57353052

You "accidently" forgot to point out the fact gsync is in each monitor so if you have multiple each one can work on its own to do its stuff.
Freesync wont. Also freesync is nowhere near as good as gsync.

Would a RX 470 be a viable upgrade from my old GTX 770?

>> No.57353301

Sapphire Nitro / xfx gtr for performance, msi or xfx for cooling (xfx needs good airflow) can't comment on the Asus strix other than I know it has the beefier vrm configuration out of all the rx 480s, and even taking their shitty coolers for amd, with the monster heatsink it has one would assume it runs relatively cool.

You should learn how to tweak settings instead of just running the highest possible preset. Witcher 3 visual quality scaling from low - and ultra is pretty shit.

Hard to say.

RX470 becuase it's fucking cheap.
2x GTX 1060 because DX12 multigpu is a thing an 2x 1060 beats a single 1080 whilst costing almost $200 less...

Rx460 outperforms the gtx 770 in bf1 1080p ultra on dx11. The 470 is twice as powerful than the 460. Just a single example though.

You have a 1200+$ sli setup and are commenting on how bad gpus that cost less than 1/4 of that are. Nice. Considering you don't need to tweak anything if the game supports sli I'm inclined to say you don't.

Actually it might have been on dx12. It's in the gamers nexus 1050ti review. But gamers nexus bf1 review takes place before a performance update for the game and literally copy pasted their old bench results onto the 1050ti review. Also, guru3d has significantly better performance across the board in their bf1 bench given a 4.4ghz 5960x vs gamernexus' 3.8ghz 5960x. All I can say about that is maybe average the two because this is a running theme where GN's benches seem lower than reality. While G3D's may be a little more liberal.

Yes. That was why the anon was talking about Dx12's mgpu capabilities. But you're right, the only one I know of right now is ashes that supports that feature.

I would assume my response to the 480 applies to the 470s as well. Xfx has a good user warranty that actually allows user end modifications as long as you keep the original hardware and didn't damage the card because of said modifications. They'll even work with you as a consultant and be willing to install anything you desire at the cost of shipping without having to worry about voiding your warranty through negligence. My 480 gtr given adequate airflow runs just as cool as the msi 470 I sold.

Power straps kept them from producing a full 16cu Polaris 11 chip for the rx 460. So instead it's only 14 cu. The revamped cards might get the full chip with improved power draw.

A 980 Ti at 1500MHz+ edges out a 1070 at 2100MHz by a good 5-10% across the board. The 1070 only looks good compared to the thottling reference 980 Tis used for benchmarking purposes, because GPU Boost 3.0 is much more aggressive than 2.0.

IPS and Freesync suck. You heard it from the horses mouth here first.

This is my reply from AOC concerning the Agon monitor on G-Sync getting the IPS treatment while the Freesync version gets TN only.

'You’re close to the truth indeed.

There is no proper IPS model in the market with Freesync, because of the Freesync refresh limitation (90hz) that panel has.

If we did introduce one, we would face the same issues as the ASUS model. It wouldn’t work for its intended purpose.
What we did instead is introduce the feature with a TN panel. The colours of the TN have been improved and look close to an IPS. Of course the viewing angles are still limited.

Right now there is no IPS panel available, in combination with freesync 144 hz that works as intended.

We hope this sheds some light on the situation.

Kind regards,

AOC Europe'

Good, just wanted to give this rig a little extra lifespan (upgraded from a GTX 660) and the low power requirements for the 470 were a large part of why I chose it. My Dell-supplied power supply has 6 pin connectors but not 8 and the 470 seemed to fit the bill the best and draws less power than the 660 so I knew it would work ok.

Performance in games has been fine. I play video games somewhat rarely but all the games I've tried have played at 1080p on the highest settings at 60+ fps. In Titanfall 2 I leave the textures on Very High instead of Insane because I guess 4 GB isn't enough to stop occasional stuttering at insane. In Forza Horizon 3 I had to turn off MSAA as it led to framerate hiccups. Otherwise all games at max settings run great at 1080p.
