    From http://www.wsj.com/articles/amd-pric...ket-1464725394 (stick the link into google and open it from there - they don't paywall hits through google):

    "AMD said its new Radeon RX cards, certified for use in VR by HTC and Oculus VR, deliver performance equivalent to that of $500 graphics cards used for VR."
    I took that to mean RX cards are certified by HTC and Oculus. Cards that are either not powerful enough or not certified for some other reason could still be R3/7/9. Or perhaps I'm reading too much into it.

    Right... so the whole exercise of introducing the R# only lasted 2 generations which were all based on pretty much the same technology, except the fury which didnt fit into that scheme anyway.

    I feel as though I have to have a rant about this nonsense twice a year. There is definitely busy-bodies at tech companies in the nomenclature department and it drives me up the wall.

    Interesting thought, but I think thats just the way they have worded it... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    They pretty much only sold R7 and R9 cards before anyway, so ditching them to RX is only halving the number of prefixes.

    Interesting that they used a haswell-e system, would the story be the same on one of their own systems or even a skylake system where the number of pci-e lanes will be a limited.

    X99 boards are pricey never mind the 40 lane cpu,

    There's no real limitation on dual GPU PCI-E lanes for skylake or AMD systems.

    Re: AMD exec discusses Radeon RX 480 Ashes of the Singularity demo

    I really like the price point for this card. If only the games and driver updates could keep up it would be a solid price performance winner.

    What is the difference between multi-adapter mode crossfireX?.

    In DX12 a game can see a pair of GPUs and drive the rendering itself.

    In crossfire the graphics driver makes the pair of cards appear as a single resource and tries to split work up between them behind the scenes.

    Very impressive but also slightly confusing 4K results. Assuming this true the RX 480 seems to punch well above it's price tag.

    Hard to tell too much since some of the options are turned down.

    I'm not sure how hard the game is on graphics cards at those settings, but for a £165-£200 it seems impressive to be able to run that game at 4K with decent settings.
