AMD will be absolutely devastated that miners are going to buy up every single card they produce at RRP or above. This definetly was in no way their planned strategy once they realised that it was a turkey in terms of gaming performance.

FYI if the increase in ETH hashrate rumor is correct it means they fixed the memory bandwidth issues Vega was having, but that means it's also gotten much faster in gaming since Vega is memory bound in both workloads.

Yes anon, it will magically increase its performance by 30% through magic dust. PS: memory bandwidth isn't an issue in gaming.

Oh yes, a 20% memory bandwidth regression vs Fiji, a 20-30% effective texture bandwidth regression vs Fiji, and a 25% texture fillrate regression vs. Fiji were TOTALLY designed into the card intentionally.

They usually underclock and undervolt for more efficient power usage. Also no thermal cycling, so should be fine, maybe change the fan at most.

>> No.61798867

People will buy Navi if it performs better than Volta. What their "market share" is up to that point is irrelevant. If the product's good enough, it will sell. AMD were out of the high end CPU market for five years, yet Ryzen has been a success. If anything, the longer people have no alternative, the more they want one.

that was not the thing that happened before. idiots buy nvidia because it is written nvidia on it. fucking thermi outsell cypress.

>> No.61799088

correction, the codename was evergreen. cypress was only 5800's chip.

>> No.61799129

And I just provided you a more recent example where it did. The longer people feel they have no choice but to buy Nvidia, there more desire there will be for an alternative, just like what happened with Intel and the CPU market. If Navi outperforms Volta by a decent amount and doesn't consume 300W under load, it will sell.

Vega was never likely to, given its at best on-par performance and astronomical power draw, so buffing its mining performance as much as possible and making money that way is a smart move.

>> No.61799144

Sapphinre models are made with pure sapphire crystal giving you a much sharper image and clearer colours. The benefit for cryptominers is that you can tune the card to the resonance frequency of the crystal and improve your hashrate somewhere between 4 and 6 times depending on the polarity of the electrons.

That's true but only PowerColor models utilize special electron conversion technologies that takes the energy from your psu to reproduce the most accurate color reproduction . The Diamond cards were trying to compete with sapphire cards, but they were definitely losing money on those diamond encrusted printed circuit boards.

>> No.61799384

AMD doesn't make a penny for any price above their MSRP, they just sell the chips to manufacturers.

I imagine this does give them some kind of preferential view with retailers though, after years of low stock and low volume they can actually justify filling shelves with AMD product.

You don't want pro drivers unless you need them for something specific.

>> No.61800608

That's why I said "at least"

RX is limited to gaming drivers, FE can use both.
If they cost the same better take FE.

>> No.61800726

>That's why I said "at least"
Literally not worth the premium unless you need a stable driver for a specific software, and amd's pro drivers are a crapshoot when it comes to stability, and features.

>> No.61800762

Just saying that if you have a choice between using amd's gaming, or pro drivers just pick the gaming since it's better supported/tested.

They don't have time to dump gcn/Vega arch so best we will get is dual to quad core GPUs on Vega based around 2019 with Nvidia doing the same.
