@Xtasy26: What's teh benchmarks? Prices look good, but i need some comparions

Some more benchmarks. Beating the 980 Ti and it cost's the same AND it comes water cooled. Looking good!

it looks fantastic so far, however 4GBvram will force you to turn some settings down in the handful of games that need more than 4GB of vram.

fury nano looks more balanced, I feel like the fury X power is going to be wasted in future games with only 4GB vram.

Oh, so you've got experience utilising HBM memory?

lol what?

it is common sense, 4GB worth of data is 4GB worth of data regrades of ram type and speed, it had always been like that. Unless some kind of compression is in place but that is not practical because use will require a lot of prepossessing power, also AMD didn't say anything about that.

Have to agree. It doesn't matter how fast it is, for 4k and even some 1440p games, 4GB won't be enough. Data is stored in the vram for fast access because system RAM and SSDs are on the order of 100 to 1000 times slower, so if you have a game that needs more than that, you are still waiting on the PCs slower components

This is just amazing ...

Source (Exclusive) :

http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-300-series-pricing-confirmed-aggressive/

It's time to stop buying GTX 970 ...i'm going with R9390 8GB ! The patience's paid off!

+

Based on what i've seen from this website so far , it's legitimate , i don't guarantee its legitimacy tho.

390's is just a tweaked 290 series with 8gb, that gpu does not have the grunt behind it to actually utilize settings or resolutions that would use 8gb.

You can pick up 8gb 290x for $360 with a free game.

Aggressive pricing lol,

380's are 285's chip, 370's are 7950/7970 based chip. the whole line isnt anything special.

Are you sure ?!

I mean we hadn't have a reliable source for specifications ...

Dude it says right on the list that 390x is enhanced Hawaii, which is what the 290x was. The new GPU architecture is Fiji, not on that list. Includes HBM and will be much more expensive. This is not really competitive pricing. The 390x is old hat before it even launches and considering such, you might even call that a rip off. It's probably not even fast enough to make use of 8GB in QHD+

Sony's comedown from PS2 was pretty epic. Wii's comedown from WiiU is probably more so. Atari's comedown from the 2600 to everything after was another crazy one. I don't really know. It's between those 3.

Though I would say the biggest rises to stardom would be the PS1, NES and 360 in that order.

PS2 went from 77% to PS3's 31%

Atari went from 2600-81% to 7800- 5%

Sega went from Genesis-40% to Saturn 6%

Atari's is the biggest market share loss. Sony is the only one who had respectable sales and market share after their drop.. Wii's will be similar to the genesis/saturn drop because wii only had ~38% to begin with, but Wii U will probably end up with less than 5%

With Guerilla/SantaMonica/Naughty Dog's second or third game.. The hardware was maxed out long ago but there are still API and engine optimizations that will allow them to squeeze a little bit more out for graphics.. performance is another story

If it's good it will sell well. But there is going to be a lot less day 1ers
