Anyone knows about 1070?? Good price but what is the power under the hood??
True things!Oh it's no secret AMD has been the clear winner in the compute world when the app(s) involved did not have CUDA support. That's never been in dispute. And very few games make actual use of compute power, so typically nVidia will win on the gaming front. A/V editing though...AMD wins.
But for OS X, while AMD may have good hardware, the drivers are usually in a barely functional state and stop getting bugfixes shortly after the next generation GPU comes out, which makes them miserable to use and very suboptimal relative to the optimizations and bugfixes nVidia puts out.
That said, I'm SO drooling over the GTX 1080. Knowing my luck though I won't be able to afford a new GPU until its Ti part surfaces, which is just fine with me.
What? That seems to be entirely untrue. http://hothardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-pascal-gpu-reviewTrue things!
Waiting for 1080 Ti or big Vega is probably a smart move. The 1080, specially the FE cards, is super overpriced-- a medium size, mainstream chip sold as interim high end. Not only that, but it runs hot and thermal throttles very quickly with the reference cooler (pretty sneaky way to make it look like reference can clock at 2+ ghz, when it can barely maintain stock boost clocks!). The 1070 looks to be very, very cut down.
Of course, let's see what actual benching tells us!
Sorry, I don't want to get too off topic (but I don't think there's anything new to talk about re 10-series compatibility just yet).
It's been released, but it's sold out everywhere it seems.Today is the release for the founders edition of gtx 1080! I wanted to propose a thread (or perhaps we can continue to use this one) for any one who has picked up a card and is testing / troubleshooting compatibility! I look forward to hearing some good news *fingers crossed*.
