    Re: Next gen graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia due in Sept

    am curious about how well they perform in comparison to each other and of course the price tag is going to be a the big thing this time... wont pay extra if the main difference is only 5 fps or something on minimum...

    Looking forward to this, 3080ti would be lovely. Even better if AMD decide to compete and release a high end card with raytracing support

    There's no question that they will, now that it's part of DirectX and is known to be a feature of their console GPUs.

    I hope the "midrange" isn't pushed up another tier - the RTX2060 was well over £300.

    Well the money i spent on this 1080ti is still making me feel a little smug. If the new cards are ~1500, I doubt there will be any boom

    Perhaps AMD have an agreement with Microsoft and Sony (they have funded these custom chips after all).

    If AMD were to ship now, when the consoles launch, they aren't going to be very impressive, especially on price.

    However, if AMD delay, the consoles will be compared to the current extortionately over priced GPUs and console, which weren't particularly impressive specification wise when they launched years ago.

    I dunno, they kind of don't need to. The very high end is expensive to make and has a tiny % market share...Yes I think AMD will launch with better raytracing support, but whether they bother to put something out at the top end? That's a big question.

    I really want them to so that there is a choice and hopefully some pricing pressure, but they do so well in the mid->low & embedded sector that they probably don't need to. We'll see!

    I'm sure they're also waiting to gauge Nvidia (or trying to).

    It appears Nvidia have an agreement with CDProjectRed, to both publicise Cyberpunk 2077 and their own GPUs.

    If AMD were to launch, it would give Nvidia an advantage, given been a head of AMD for years and would love to out play them again.

    I personally hope AMD has something impressive to show (I suspect they do), but also are able to out manoeuvre Nvidia, enabling them to gain traction.

    Re: Next gen graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia due in Sept

    GAME ON !
    September seem so far away now, but it will be here in a heartbeat for me at least, cuz you see as you get older time accelerate so what is 6 months at +50 age was a year when you was 25 age.

    Really screw up things when you sit with a friend and remember the old days, and you go "remember 10 years ago when" ........ and then you realize that it was +20 years ago :-(

    I do not like accelerated time one bit.

    The sad thing is, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people willing to spend that much on a gaming GPU. I'm mean, look at what happened when the 2080ti was released...cries of shock & horror at the price, and yet Nvidia sold them as fast as they could make them.

    That's great. but before any hype - let see performance and prices, as I expect the performance to be leap and bounds boost if they want to keep these prices at enthusiast lvl.

    Aye - I might pick up a 2nd hand one !

    Re: Next gen graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia due in Sept

    While I'm basically stuck with nvidia due to cuda being far better supported than opencl in the programs I use, I really hope that AMD brings out a worthy competitor to Nvidia and forces the prices to come down.

    I'm expecting to pay £1000 give or take for my next gpu when I upgrade, based on current prices, but I still can't get past the feeling of being ripped off at that sort of price....

    TBF,unless its a work related cost,ie,your income is based on it,no one forces you to have to buy expensive graphics cards.

    Exactly, but to be fair, you can apply that to almost anything in life, most things we have aren't essential, even when you look at food.

    But due to lack of competition, Nvidia used the opportunity to profit enormously, at the expense of their customers. AMD may be happy to just go a long for the ride, but I suspect not.
