I'll waiting till I see independent benchmarks. Plus if the 2080ti can't hit 60fps @ 1080p with ray tracing on. Why in the world would they put ray tracing tech in all cards below it and cause prices to be higher than they should be? Seems like a very sloppy launch. If you get a 2080 or lower you're most likely never going to use ray tracing at current. Now if they get their drivers sorted out and they can be optimized to actually be usable that would be something. But again it takes time and by the time they get everything sorted out for ray tracing the next gen cards will probably be here. So yeah, I'd advise sitting out this generation of cards.
Benchmarks could potentially sink the RTX series. Reported that the 2080ti can't hit 60 FPS @ 1080p. So what good is RTX on the lower series cards? Sounds like a great idea just not to where it's viable yet.
Maybe next fall when they make the jump to 7nm and a new card gen is here. It's pretty much guaranteed something new will be out next fall. They never drop the XX80ti this early in a run. Normally they let the Titan of the gen take center stage for awhile before it comes out. Such an abnormal release.
Yes, it has. I have a few other expenses that have taken precedent to upgrading(getting married primarily). I was wanting a 1080ti but at the end of the day other things come first. At this point and the price of Pascal I think I'll wait for the 1180ti/2080ti to come out. Got a decent overclock on the GPU, and the CPU runs at 4.6ghz and has never broken 60C. GPU temp has never exceeded 75C either. So it works pretty well. Without the overclock it settles at 65C under 100% load.
I haven't been playing too overly GPU demanding games. So it works for now.
I doubt at this time its all the miners' doing. With Volta on the horizon I'd bet that Nvidia has stopped production of Pascal all-together and is in the process of creating the initial Volta supply.
Next gen of GPUs. You'll get a better product at a better price. Signs point to NVidia announcing Volta at GTC on March 27th.
Yeah, with the hype around them and the estimated performance gains, I'm stoked. I've actually seen the increase from a Titan XP to a Titan V and it's a 26-30% gain on our research applications. Not sure what to expect in the gaming realm but it should be decent.
Solid build. But I'd bump the RAM up to 2666 at least since that is native to the 8700K. If you can wait a bit I'd wait for the next gen of GPUs they should be a couple months out.
If you can wait a few months the new cards should be out. Volta should be announced March 27th at GTC. I'm betting the NVidia shortage is partly due to the rise mining but the impossibility of finding them now seems to be related to the launch of the next generation of cards. Because even when the miners were buying everything up most cards appeared to be available more often though at a greatly inflated price.

You could always sub in the mortar instead since it is on special right now.

My bad. Thought he meant Gaming Peripherals...
Especially since "no" after the next 2 colons are lower caps and Operating System is capitalized.
"Budget: 4000 euro Location: Ireland Use (gaming, rendering, etc): Gaming Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): no Operating System required: no"
It's right in the description...
He did mention rendering...
It really should be a 1080ti at least and a larger PSU...
Well considering all that is available on here for Ireland... Here ya go...
I know this is slightly over. But it's pretty solid.
Do you need an OS?
For gaming are you looking for frame rates or resolution?
A little different. But good things do take time and plenty of chance and opportunity play a part as well. :)
I was always wondering if we'd get to see this beauty. Glad it finally made it's long awaited appearance. Guess you have to wait for the really sexy builds ;) Gorgeous build mate :)
Thanks guys. Unplugged everything and it didn't find it so I played with the BIOS and got it to work. :)
I'll give it a go when I get home and let you know how it turns out.
I have the most up to date bios currently. It did detect the Hdd at one point but it didn't last long.
The election system the US has. Since it is divisive and only allows for a two party system.
It is a good analogy for other EU countries using the Euro leaving. They'd have to create a new currency while killing investment. Which would lead to the new currency being utterly worthless.
Britain herself is in for a bumpy ride. It may not be immediately evident but as time progresses it will manifest itself.
Trade barriers are not the way to go when the economy is down we in the US already proved that with the Hoover years. Obviously no one pays attention to history anymore because it appears a global repeat of the 1930's in the US may be upon us. With all the fiery rhetoric being spewed by the right wing nationalists, blaming everyone else for their country's problems resentment against those other countries will ensue and lead to WWIII. That was one of the biggest talking points that got Hitler elected. The horrendous state of the German economy in the 1930's and the easiest place to put the blame was on the rest of Europe for the required reparations for WWI.
Here's the Tom's review. Makes me want to crossfire two of these in a mini itx case with a 9590 fx cranked to 4.5ghz all running off a diablotek PSU and give it to my worst enemy.
Have to see what the 1060 brings to the table. I could easily see the 1060 being better then the 480 at a similar price point with a lower TDP. I'm hoping it has at least 480X performance at a lower price and better performance/watt.
Not much of an answer from AMD on that. We'll have to see. This could end up worse than the 3.5gb 970 fiasco.
I wouldn't even think about putting 2 480s in a build with the reference design. That would be murder on your system with the PCI draw. See Tom's review.
Haven't seen the reviews of AIBs of the 1080 yet to corroborate that statement. Would you happen to have a link?
I'm curious to see the AIB prices for the 480 just because of everything that will need to be done to the cards to allow them to OC and not strain the user's system with the PCI power draw. 480 8gb is already 240 - 250, AIBs will be closer to 275+ at this point it seems. At that price I'd just get a 1070.
Probably not gonna get much of an OC with the after-market cards. It's topping out at over 80C on the reference without an OC. Same song different verse from AMD
Check out Tom's review. If you want to reduce the life of your system be all means get the 480. Since it draws excessive amounts of power through the PCI slot. I'd wait for AIBs with an 8-pin power connectors or an 8+6.
With the wave of M.2 and PCIE storage with a higher performance ceiling SATA express became obsolete quick.
Why go with a 256gb M.2 and a 500gb SATA? Why not just do a 500gb M.2 and get a platter for more storage?
The fridges LIVE!!!!!!!!!!
How hot are those cards running being so close together?
So you'll have a helicopter case? Sounds interesting, have to tether it to the desk and have something soft for it to land on.
So it has efficiency, yee haw. It was a demo against the GTX 950 and all the new cards are expected to have massive gains in efficiency. LOL, the lowest card in the Maxwell lineup. So does that mean that Polaris will only equal Maxwell in performance? I expect Nvidia to beat AMD to the punch for HBM2 as Samsung hit the production phase well before SK hynix. Meaning Nvidia should have the most powerful cards again. I hope Polaris is better than expected to push Nvidia. But I don't have my hopes that high. It is AMD after all.
You may be waiting till Vega for that one. Not sure who will be better but, Polaris appears to be all GDDR5 or GDDR5X.
Yeah it wouldn't be best with that GPU either as you would need an adapter to get 144hz. It requires a Dual Link DVI-D connection for 144hz. My bad
I have the Acer GN246HL and I love it.
Doesn't seem like that will be on the ?80 or ?70. From everything I've read it'll all be GDDR5 for everything but the ?80Ti and the Titan?. Why do you care looks like your using a $100 pc stick from your username. No PCIE to be found on one of those.
I think Q1-Q2 next year is best case scenario right now. Extremely best case scenario. Doesn't seem to be enough supply of HBM2 for the high end cards. You may get a few GDDR5 mid level this year, but I wouldn't expect anything earth shaking in the gaming segment.
the motherboard looks cheap AF. The SSD is installed in the 2nd PCIE slot which makes me seriously doubt the expandability of this board, especially for an E-series processor. But hey if you want to purchase a neutered pc by all means go for it.
