yay and then you'll need 3 1090 GTX's to break 40FPS
it's undoubtledly going to be a beautiful screen but for me gaming wise I'm going to leave 60Hz behind me. such a shame because my current monitor is lovely in all other respects.
Its a waaaaay off for gaming. The brute force just isn't there, even with crazy set ups.
I may have read (without the usual, omg where are your ketchups?!? and so on) that the human eye can only see in ~16k
But @Big G "good times" for gaming incoming over the next 10 years or so, so long as we don't all catch Brexit and die... or pretend to game on consoles.
Besides which if its not 16k @60fps it can get in the sea.
Shame the relative power in GPU/CPU isn't on par with those crazy monitors. Unless there's a bottleneck with the DirectX interface in relation to how games are programmed and how the graphic-cards work. A large leap would be nice, instead of the standard 20-25% shift with prices that in my opinion really isn't warranted.
Went for 1070 in the end, should be arriving shortly mmmmmm big upgrade from 1.5gb 660
The card I bought was mahoosive! Was getting worried at first that I wouldn't be able to fit it in the case.
Glad I have the Corsair Air 540 case!
Well its a whole new build and case
Should keep me busy for some years
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Video Card Brings The Muscle - Legit Reviews
It's "only" going to be $699.
And thats without VAT
That isn't bad for the alleged performance gains.
The 1080 was an absolutely dreadful card for perf/£ , with my 1070 amp extreme getting equivalent performance.
If the average gain is around 35-40%, then it will put a lot of titles that were close to 4k60 over the finish line, and price being 60-65% higher than a 1070 for 45-50% perf gains isn't too bad for the flagship.
Let's hope vega magically is better for half the money?
Considering upgrading but tbh I'm not sure I even need to for another 2-3 year at least.
4690k @ 4.0ghz
nothing really chugs, some CPU intensive games chug sort of... but nothing ground breaking, might just wait until the next round of releases after Coffeelake and see how it goes.
So as predicted by pretty much everyone, they really have moved fast this cycle.
Nvidia Titan Xp introduced as 'the world's most powerful graphics card' | PC Gamer
Less than a year after 1080 launch and the titan is already out (soon).
So it seems you can flash a 480 to a 580
Only on some specific versions, depending on whether they have a better power controller on them than the stockish ones.
AMD Radeon RX 570 And RX 580 Review: A Little Extra Power Goes A Long Way
Nice to see AMD are sticking with the whole low price thing, any benchmarks for them yet vs Nvidia cards?
Around about a 1060, stock.
Edit, although the article with benchmarks seems to have vanished from PC Gamer so not sure now.
Edit, edit. Radeon RX 580 review | PC Gamer
Although they are not stock cards.
Not bad then for the price.
Heh, so not only did they release the current tier top end cards within the predicted timescale but we are ~6 months away from the next gen (apparently)
NVIDIA to launch next-gen Volta-based GeForce in Q3 2017
So when VEGA cards come out from AMD they may already be only mid-range
