Unless (as a consumer) you are powering VR, not even the 3090 or 6900 drives those high resolution HMDs well. Its raster all the way for me, if it comes with RT then great but I'd happily trade every shader for raster over RT right now.At this stage in time RT crown is more important anyway, top GPUs currently have enough Raster horsepower to drive the top screens on the market, it's only RT that lags behind
Why do people keep saying that AMD will have a power efficiency advantage going forward? How do you guys know?
Surely you aren't stupid enough to base it on current gen cards? Where AMD's RDNA 2 is on a very power efficient 7nm node while Nvidia are using a much less power efficient 8nm node(and it's really a 10nm node) Look at the gains AMD made in power efficiency from RDNA 1 to RDNA 2, that was mainly down to switching to from one 7nm process to a more power efficient 7nm process.
If both were using the same 7nm node which would have the advantage??
Samsung's 8nm node is just a tweaked 10nm. It's not a power efficient node like the 7nm node RDNA 2 is on.Its not a 10nm node its 8nm , its the last of the DUV, before Samsung to go 7nm and EUV. If you listen to MLID Nv are using up to 600w for th high end next gen part, and AMD are coing in at nearly 40% less than that.
Samsung's 8nm node is just a tweaked 10nm. It's not a power efficient node like the 7nm node RDNA 2 is on.
And seriously MILD? Taking his word on what's coming out in the future would be also be stupid.
*sigh*And TSMC N7 is a tweak of its own 10nm DUV. It wasnt until they started 7N+ they moved to EUV. Also 6nm is a process tweak of N7 , and AMD are using that (it`ll keep costs down compared to N5 or even the rumoured N4 that Nv are going to use). You are aware of all of this?
As for MLID - he broke the news about the change in PSU spec before anyone else and voila, those said same PSU with 16 pin gpu power are now in the market. Open your eyes son.
Oh bless you son. I would suggest you start with Dr Ian Cutress then move to level 1 techs to learn exactly WHY you are wrong.*sigh*
AMD's RDNA 2 is using a much more power efficient process than Nvidia's Ampere GPUs? Yes or No?
That if you take the difference in process out of the equation, it's very hard to know which architecture is actually more power efficient right now.
That you don't know which company is going to have the most power efficient architecture for their next round of GPUs?
Even if the 600TGP turns out to be correct, that still doesn't point to what the actual power efficiency is going to be.
All we got now is rumours. That's it.
You telling me to open my eyes is extremely funny. If opening my eyes means believing rumour sites and clickbait, then no thanks. Everything they say should be taken with a massive pinch of salt, unless you are a fool of course, then just go ahead and believe it all.
And, don't call me son. You don't have a clue what the power efficiency of the next round of cards are, stop acting like you do.
Exactly this.Every product that has come out on the TSMC 7nm process has been extremely power efficient. RDNA2 , M1 Mac , Vermeer cpus. To think that the 7nm node process is not having a very large effect on AMDs power efficiency advantage is just wrong , it is a large part of it.
We just will not know which is more power efficent in the next gen until independent reviewers have the cards in their hands. What we do know is that Nv and AMD are both issuing warning about how much power these new cards will use and that is extremely worrying.
Oh bless you son. I would suggest you start with Dr Ian Cutress then move to level 1 techs to learn exactly WHY you are wrong.
