youidiotbasher, future proof for 1 game?
Doom has only been optimized for consoles which is AMD's architecture.
It hasn't been optimized for PC.
Throw something better out. ; )
That is well know and why the benchmarks are worthless right now.,
BTW, so far your predictions are dead wrong.
This is based on forward earnings from Nvidia and AMD.
AMD guided down, Nvidia up.
Async has been known for a while now, and it's not driving sales of Fury cards.
Come back down to planet earth and get realistic.
In their current gen that might be true.
Like i said, there aren't enough ASYNC heavy games comming out in 2016 to kick Nvidia in the nuts.
Having one game is not enough.
They (nvidia) can fix it in 2017 with Pascal 2.0 and would be fine.
Maybe it's in Pascal 1.0 comming out this year.
Maybe they can handle it better in Maxwell and are choosing not to yet.
Nvidia likes to hold their cards until the very end if you haven't noticed.
They don't need AMD's patents.
There are many ways to implement async compute, and there are existing patents on it already from other companies that Nvidia could try to license.
You seem to know jack about how hardware works.
You honestly think there is only one way in the known universe to do it.
"Consumers will flock to AMD cards."
Not really. Every game engine is done differently.
Look at the Fable benchmarks which use Unreal Engine 4 with DX12.
AMD didn't dominate Fable.
You guys are just plain foolish.
One game isn't going to pump the hell out of AMD's GPU sales.
It's going to take a lot of games.
If Nvidia has a deficiency, they have a lot of time to fix it.
Probably until Pascal 2.0 in 2017.
There simply aren't enough DX12 ASYNC based games to give Nvidia a serious kick to the nuts.
In the mean time, look at games like Tomb Raider on Ultra, or Fall out 4.
Nvidia kicks the poop out of AMD on those games.
Those are popular HIGH volume games.
I'm talking sales. not game benchmarks.
It's crystal clear who is selling way more high end cards.
You kids can keep pointing at your one DX12 benchmark all you want.
It isn't putting money in AMD's pockets.
By the time there are a significant number of DX12 titles, we will be on Pascal and Polaris.
Fury and the 980TI will be done.
Go back to your games... you clearly don't understand the bigger picture.
"@I_give_you_this@ Fury is not a flop,"
It's quite clear the 980 TI dominates the high end market and Fury lost.
It's a flop.
Next up is Pascal and Plaris in 6 months.
"@Multiple Troll Pumper Accounts@ show us where AMD is not executing their product launches!"
They needed Zen released in 2015 at the start of 14nm.
Launched a follow on to kaveri/godavari. DDR3 still. Another Flop.
The list goes on and on.
Maybe you should look at the macro picture for AMDs execution.
"@ i_give_you_this @ .AMD is executing "
Yes, they are executing so well they lowered earnings guidance two quarters in a row now.
Who cares about Samsung.
AMD has to buy the majority of their parts from Global Foundries.
If you need a reminder they flunked their yield tests with Apple and have no major 14nm customers besides AMD.
And as a kicker, GF is going to do 10nm on their own and not work with Samsung.
Broods a lot of confidence doesn't it.
"@i_give_you_this@ they don't see it that way"
Who is 'they' ?
It would help if you figured out how to write a legible sentence that makes sense.
If you happen to be referring to the author of the seeking alpha article, all the user comments are setting him straight.
Only the clown car pumpers would jump on board a terrible piece like that.
AMD is desperate for any market for high end cards.
Maybe they think this will help them.
They failed at this in 2008. This is their 2nd try.
To bad all the hard core notebook vendors already have a solution using USB 3.0.
To bad you can't think for yourself i_give_you_this. You would understand all this.
Oh, and you have much more powerful and more efficient GPU's coming for notebooks this summer.
Great timing by AMD as always to do this right before 14nm/16nm parts are coming.
Maybe people aren't happy with the news out of Nvidia.
Pascal will be unveilved at GTC.
Pascal in Notebooks in mid-june.
Asus has a GTX 950 that doesn't need a 6 pin power connector and can OVERCLOCK.
It uses 15-25W less than the GTX 950 AMD used for it's Demo.
Throws some salt at Pascals power numbers since AMD's demo was with a GTX 950.
The shiny Apple doesn't look as Shiny when Nvidia had 950's on 28nm using less power than AMD's demo.
usforced, you are clueless.
A10-7890K is nothing special and is NOT driving the stock price movement.
It's still bulldozer. No DDR4.
AMD's APU's are not driving any revenue.
You probably haven't noticed with Kaveri and Godavari AMD's CPU revenue has been shrinking.
A10-7890K is more of the same #$%$.
"SCWBP 25 TO 25.30 RANGE PERHAPS LOOK FOR 25 TO 25.10 CLOSED 25.18"
I threw in an order for 2500 @ 25.12.
If it doesn't hit in an hour or two i will bump it to 25.15.
Hahahaa... ironic they are doing that before the 16nm/14nm next gen parts come from AMD and Nvidia.
Laptop GPU's are going to get a lot stronger.
This is another fluff market AMD is chasing.
USforced, you and i_give_you_this should get together and form the AMD clown car syndrom club.
You sound like a 2 year old usforced.
Posting random lame excuses doesn't fix things for AMD.
Why don't you try looking at Nvidia's earnings. GPU revenue grew and they projected up next quarter.
No amount of excuses you post can erase that fact.
AMD slashed prices and gained share.
But it didn't help their quarterly revenue.
They gained market share, but their revenue dropped and will drop again based on AMD's forward guidance.
On the other hand Nvidia's GPU revenue grew.
Probably because they own the high end of the market.
You need to look deeper into the numbers.
On a side note, I was never able to get a purchase filled on the Goldman Sachs shares GS-N.
It's trading at $25.408.
Not a great profit, but it still would have been a profit.
I guess I should have put in a bid for $25.10 to try and lock down shares when it hit the grey market.
