>290 vs 780
That just tells me that buying AMD is the better choice. Why bother with Nvidia when they hop from architecture to architecture and drop the previous one like an unwanted baby? The only thing you're gaining is efficiency, which should only amount to a few extra bucks a year if you don't live in a third world shithole, so it isn't that big a deal.

>benchmark cheating
When you're making your product look better when it actually isn't, that's cheating no matter how you spin it. They have their reason, but that doesn't make it not shady. Also, AMD may own what was formerly ATi, but that doesn't make them ATi. AMD on the whole has done much less than Intel and Nvidia. Or they just haven't been caught yet. But y'know, innocent until proven guilty. Fun fact: Nvidia has recently called Intel out for cheating in Phi vs Maxwell benchmarks.

"Why bother with Nvidia when they hop from architecture to architecture and drop the previous one like an unwanted baby? "
What?

The AMD fanboy is strong in this one. Architectural improvements are necessary to bring more power-efficient components that run faster than previous generations, they also allow the GPU makers to take advantage of smaller manufacturing processes, meaning more transistors can be put on the same space. AMD was releasing the same cards with some more VRAM for the past few years and marketing them as new GPUs.

Here's an example of why new architectures are important: AMD has not released a new CPU architecture since Bulldozer in 2011 (the newest refresh still uses the 32nm manufacturing process), and Intel has released quite a few since then, the newest being Skylake, which uses the 14nm manufacturing process. Intel's CPUs have run circles around AMDs for the last 5 years because of this. Old architectures just aren't going to compete with newer, more efficient ones no matter how much time you spend on improving them. I used CPU architecture as an example but the same principle applies to GPU architectures.

And no, I am not an Nvidia or Intel fanboy. I couldn't care less what brand the parts in my PC are as long as they perform well. There's 3 machines in my house and 2 of them use Radeon GPUs, and one of then an AMD CPU. As far as I'm concerned brand loyalty is a retarded concept, all these companies exist for the purpose of making a profit and I'll buy whatever works for me regardless of if its made by team red blue or green.

>AMD fanboy
Correct. Anyone that regularly talks with me about PC hardware knows this. I do not hide or deny it. I do not like Nvidia or Intel, mainly due to their underhandedness. Though I do have a couple Intel CPUs. I intend to jump ship back team red if Zen delivers what I want.

Everyone else has said pretty much everything I would have, so I'm not going to bother with a huge wall responding to every little point. I'll just add that you missed the point on me saying AMD is the better choice overall. If you want longevity, choose AMD. My 280x is still doing everything just fine, typically falling at or above 960 performance, and it's a rebrand of the 5 year old 7970. I can expect it to widen the gap in the future.

Well the thing is that amd hasn't produced a good high end card in well... quite some time. And also Amd may seem like the good guy but don't think for a second that if they had the market share that nvidia does they wouldn't be just as bad.
User avatar
#90 - OtisMcWonderful (08/28/2016) [-]
The Nano and Fury X cards are fine. They still do very well in benchmarks of games not gimped with GayWorks sponsored by Nvidia.


As for them doing the same with a large market share, maybe. Maybe not. Last time they were in a similar situation, Intel fucked them over behind the scenes with garbage tactics like paying OEMs not to use AMD hardware and cheating benchmarks.
User avatar
#91 - avatice (08/28/2016) [-]
Well the 980ti did better in the benchmarks I saw when they first came out. Like not soul crushingly better but still a bit of an improvement. I might have gotten a fury x if it was better. And also they weren't very available at the time. But anyway now that the 1070 exists it pushes it even more towards a niche market.
And yeah there's no way to tell really. But they're a company and their goal is to make money anyway they can. I would honestly love to see some high end stuff from amd and who knows maybe zen will be the best thing ever. They certainly said that they could put a lot of cores on it...
But for right now my next upgrade will probably be a 1080ti.

#95 - OtisMcWonderful (08/28/2016) [-]
So far, Zen matches or beats Broadwell-E clock for clock in certain benchmarks according to AMD. I'm hoping that's actually the case. Intel had gotten lazy since AMD couldn't keep up. I think Zen is going to be the kick in the ass that the x86 CPU market needs. We need some old Athlon vs Pentium type competition.

As for my next upgrade, it'll be either Zen assuming it delivers or a Vega GPU, whichever happens first.
User avatar
#98 - avatice (08/28/2016) [-]
We'll see. Nothing to do till then. I do agree that Intel is a bunch of lazy bastards. Like what is the fucking point of this skylake refresh. And it shouldn't be too long until zen is here. More and more details seem to be surfacing as of late.

why'd u ignore the 780 vs 290 point. do u know what context is lol.

it seems u dont and if u did, you wouldn't have bought any amd related products. if u dont get what im saying right now, dont worry, ur still a dumbass. hurrrr

#24 - weeirdaboo (08/28/2016) [-]
you got some things messed up in your post.
first. Intel made no new Arichetcutre since Intel Core (wikipedia says 2006)!
They Do exactly the same as AMD with their GCN. Release a Product, maybe shrink the Node and do minor adjustments over the year.

AMD Bulldozer was a New Architecture. It Flopped in the First generation horrible, later they adjusted the architecture but because Global Foundries could not deliver 20nm Products, they had to scrap their Plans of a new High end Desktop Chip.

Meanwhile they tuned the architecture more and released Steamroller and Excavator in the Entry level range. Both are Still Bulldozer but highly Optimized. While still beeing built in 28 NM, they come close to Intels Processors in that marked segment!

For later this year we know that AMD Zen is comming, which is a complete new architecture and has more in common with old Thurband than Bulldozer. That is the main reason why AMD did nuthing in High end chips the last year or two.

Nvidia did the Same with Kepler, minor adjustments and node shrinks lead to Maxwell and Pascall, but they are by no means new architecutres from scratch

#27 - thebrownbomber (08/28/2016) [-]
What? Nehalem, Sandy Bridge, Haswell, Skylake are all new microarchitectures released after Core. And yes, Intel does do node shrinks to their architectures and release them as new chips. Westmere was a node shrink/improvement on Nehalem, Ivy Bridge improved Sandy Bridge, Broadwell improved Haswell, and Skylake's successor will be Kaby Lake. but Intel is definitely not using the same microarchitecture from 2006. Just because their chips still carry the "Core" branding doesn't mean they're using 10 year old microarchitecture. Can you link me to the Wikipedia page that says they've been using the same microarchitecture since 2006?

Steamroller and Excavator don't come close to competing with Intel's Skylake chips, Zen is a different story and I can't wait for AMD to finally get its act together so there can be some real competition in the CPU market again. Intel's gotten lazy, they could have released 6 core mainstream I5s and i7s a long time ago but AMD hasn't given them any reason to yet. I really hope Zen lives up to its hype, it'll finally get Intel off its ass.

#28 - weeirdaboo (08/28/2016) [-]
They are improvements from Core, just the same story as AMD does with their GCN.

They take what they have, make improvements and change stuff, then launch it. Over the years they sure have changed so much that todays chips dont have much in comon with core, yet they share the same roots



Making a new microarchitecture from scratch takes serval years and that is something we have not seen from intel in a while

#31 - thebrownbomber (08/28/2016) [-]
And steamroller/bulldozer were APU chips, not CPUs, AMD hasn't changed the FX line in years.
User avatar
#44 - weeirdaboo (08/28/2016) [-]
wait what?
Vishera/steamroller/excavator are all followers of bulldozer (excavator is not present as high end chip, but it still exists)
They are all purly CPUs, just like bulldozer!

None of these chips were APUs, not the FX and not Excavator
Bulldozer does not even have graphic processing units inside

AMD Apus are Liano,Trinity,Richland,Kabini,Kaveri and Carrizo and in future Raven Ridge

On the Other side, every single Intel core I chip on the consumer socket is a APU

#103 - thebrownbomber (08/29/2016) [-]
sorry, i meant steamroller/excavator. the FX line still hasn't been updated in years but I just saw that the athlon x4 was an excavator based cpu so my bad.

yo shut up and stop arguing for a second. I want to build a computer. Anyone have a link to one ~1000$ that will play pretty much every game at 60fps 1080p
User avatar
#101 - OtisMcWonderful (08/28/2016) [-]
To give a general guideline, i5-4690k or better with a 480 or 1060. If you're willing to wait, you can see what Zen offers in around 6 months, but otherwise Intel > AMD currently. You could move up to a 1070 if you have the dough, but it's kind of overkill at only 1080p.

As the other comment mentioned, most everything else can be fairly cheap, with the exception of the PSU. If anything, splurge on that. It's the only component that can drag everything else with it if it shits the bed. This doesn't necessarily mean go for high wattage, however. Just get the wattage that you need for your components. What you want is 80+ bronze rating or better. I think 80+ gold has a great price:reliability ratio.
#92 - notagainpls (08/28/2016) [-]
GTX980ti, GTX1070 or higher is a must for 60fps 1080p every game. For CPU you should go with i7 4790k. Can be overclocked and won't have cache problems like AMD CPUs have. Stuttering because of CPU is so 2000s but AMD still serving old ass problems like its their new invention. Then a 256GB SSD and for the rest you go with cheap shit to hit the 1000$ mark. You can upgrade that later if you feel the need. Also you will have longevity and a smaller electrical bill.
Nvidia and Intel are high price for a reason. AMD fanboys just try to compensate for their losses in benchmarks, their stutters, crashes and high bills here.

look for something with a I5 Processor of the Intel 5XXX or 6XXX generation and a RX480 or GTX 1060 or maybe even a 1070 if it still fits the budget. .
Should be enough for 1080P

I have not really links in english

That's... still a new microarchitecture. It doesn't have to be made from the ground up to be new.
User avatar
#25 - weeirdaboo (08/28/2016) [-]
Saying amd did nothing new since bulldozer but counting skylake as complete new architecutre makes no sense at all.
Skylake is more a new architecture like piledriver/steamroller/exavator or on intel side Sandy bridge/broadwell/skylake

Ofcourse I can deny that. Wireless wasn't a "new" concept, many people had the inclination to create such a method, however the energy cost/falloff have always been a constant issue and still is to this day.

I'm sorry but you clearly know very little actual history involving the man, you come off as only reading snippet articles on the internet that make him seem more amazing than what he was. He certainly gave his contribution to the betterment of science, but let's not act like he was anymore of a visionary than any other inventor/scientist at the time.
