>> No.54757964

Getting one, just not decided on when. I probably can't get one in launch even if I tried and 800 euros for the Founder's Edition is a steep price - especially when I don't really need a blower style cooler. It's a card which gives me good enough performance for an upgrade from GTX 780 to be worth it. I'm really curious to see what you can do with the NVENC, too. Haven't found much info on the new version implemented in Pascal. I'm a bit interested in SLI too but I'm waiting for proper frame time analysis benchmarks before purchasing a second card.

I'd completely disagree that games "look like shit". It's subjective and fairly unrelated to performance requirements for games. I want to run newer games at high frames on high resolutions without needing to turn down graphics settings(too much). If my display can do 2560x1440 at 165Hz, I want to make use of it.

It's in the eyes of the beholder and unrelated to whether you need power to run them. I want performance more than the eye candy anyway but by paying out the ass I could get both so that's what I'll end up doing.

It's not going to be anywhere near that cheap and I'm not going to start waitfagging for rapidly evolving computer hardware. By holidays we have probably another flagship or two out from both brands and rumors of the next generation are circulating at full force. Should I start waiting for a price drop then too? Wait for the next gen? I'm going to see what the card manufacturers have to offer on the GTX 1080, pick a good card and call it a day.

No thoughts because I'm waiting for 1070.

Anyone knows how long will we have to wait for non-reference 1070? Please tell me that it won't take more than 2 weeks.

>> No.54758206


The 1080 is equivalent to the 980 in terms of positioning, it's a new architecture and the middle gets slashed the most. However if you're running two in sli, it's a classy setup alhough I'd rather aim for top or sub-top single gpu. A 1060 will probably follow as well.

I agree visuals are good, I play in 4k and its worth it however the substance of games, this "pull" to play is not as appealing anymore, probably due to early releases or too mainstream aa titles.. We currently dont have an original blockbuster title that makes people play and get hooked

If you have a 780 you already have NVENC, unless you specifically mean the new HEVC options. If it's anything like the older NVENC then you can expect performance of around the "high quality" preset in real-time e.g. It'll look damn good.

Yes, but that has the same effect as if you set a fan curve where 70 degrees = 100% fan.

Yes, it's shit that the default fan curve lets the card hit 84 degrees, but it's been that way for the past few generations. They prefer a hot card over a loud card. Every GPU acts this way though, it doesn't make Pascal a housefire. All you have to do is set it so the cooler does its damn job.

Would you like to take a look at the prices?

Paying an absolute marginal premium on getting the FE (which I kinda wanted anyway, it's pretty)

And I get to have it tomorrow not some time in the next few months.

That's because they realized that to get proper cooling whilst staying quiet requires proper coolers. Personally if I was buying I would prefer a 3 fan cooler.

1080 Seahawk. Wow first I've seen of this. Not that much more expensive either. It'll probably be reference PCB though with the power throttling issues that entails.

blower coolers are often considered to be better for SLI setups and for low-airflow cases since they expel the heat out the back of the case

>Does not show setup
>Does not show curves over time period
It could be all those benches are tested for a few minutes only so it boosts. I'd like ot see how the card is setup (what case if any and ambient temps) plus the curves (Power, temp, FPS, GPU usage) for each game at 10+ minutes game time. Otherwise it's all meaningless bullshit.

Mostly because people don't seem to mind 2.5 slot cards anymore, years ago people would have throw a fit if a card was bigger than two slots, then they got the rebrand amd 300 series with 2.5 slot coolers which help keep the monster heating machines under control, might as well go ahead and do the same with Nvidia cards, the msi 390 heatsink is almost as twice as thick as the one on the msi GTX 970.

I specifically asked Matt from Hardware unboxed if he tested the game for prolonged periods of time.

He said he ran the oc'd speeds stable for 2 hours of gaming.

So your assumptions are wrong

can somebody tell me what the fuck the point of FastSync is when just capping the rendering loop fps is better in every way?

>> No.54768514

better version of triple buffering basically

>> No.54768524

$380 and $600 price points are borderline fraudulent marketing by Nvidia.

they're trying to destroy their partners' margins for some quick good press for themselves.

>> No.54768547

>capping the rendering loop fps
latency. if you cap it like that, you render a frame in e.g. 2ms, then you sit around doing nothing for 14 ms, so you get an additional 14 ms of latency. with fastsync you can keep rendering frames so you get almost zero additional latency

>> No.54768564

again, FastSync is supposed to reduce latency/judder when fps exceeds Hz.

why the fuck not just cap the rendering loop in this situation and drop to double buffering?

pre orders are probably a ripoff m8

>> No.54768684

again, it would seem smarter to just kick off the frame render batch job some small time delta before the delivery cutoff.

But you're out of your mind if you think FastSync is designed for situations where a GPU is rendering at 500 fps on a 60 Hz monitor.
It's for situations where maybe 65 or 70 fps on 60 Hz or ~130 fps on 120 Hz, where the latency from the naive capping approach is maaaybe 1 ms.

>it would seem smarter to just kick off the frame render batch job some small time delta before the delivery cutoff
if you miss the delivery you get another frame of latency or tearing

Don't be a fucking retard.

>> No.54768848

not with adaptive sync, and estimates can be made conservative enough this will hardly ever happen.

but really, doing nothing and getting maybe 1 ms latency in common usage is the really the best choice.

FastSync is just an overengineered anti-feature.

>> No.54768855

At least it's cheaper than Founders. That could have been really bad if it was $740

>> No.54768879

fastsync isn't for everyone but for competitive games like csgo it can obviously be very useful to get minimal latency without tearing

>> No.54768899

and it's only $20 above MSRP, at launch, fuck off butthurt amd kid

and it has legitimately good features, like the massive cooler and the fans that idle at 0, completely silent assuming no coil whine (and reviewers have been saying that there are no issues with coil whine for the pascal cards)

>Upgraded cooling further expands the Strix GeForce GTX 1080’s potential. The DirectCU III cooler runs heatpipes directly over the GPU to accelerate thermal transfer, and its beefy heatsink is cooled by three fans for faster dissipation. The Wing-Blade fans are carefully shaped to maximize static pressure over the heatsink, contributing to a 30% improvement in cooling performance over the Founders Edition. You don’t have to sacrifice acoustics, either. The Strix is much quieter than the Founders Edition, and its 0dB fans spin down completely at idle and under lighter loads, allowing the card to operate in stealthy silence. The heatsink is so effective on its own that you can even play less-demanding games without any fan noise.

>> No.54769040

>While the cooler is primarily responsible for keeping GPU temperatures in check, the surrounding system fans play an important role; they dictate the flow of cooler external air toward the graphics card and warmer air around it toward the chassis exhaust vents. The trouble is, system fans typically change speeds based on the temperature of the CPU or motherboard, which doesn’t always track with what’s happening on the graphics card. Gaming and virtual reality put much more strain on the GPU than on the CPU, and the resulting temperature disparity results in inefficient graphics cooling.

>To fix the problem, the Strix GeForce GTX 1080 has dual 4-pin fan headers controlled by the GPU temperature. Plug standard case fans into the card, and ASUS FanConnect technology will adjust their speed based on the graphics load. Pretty much everyone can use this unique feature to make their system cooling more intelligent, and overclockers can direct additional airflow to the graphics card to lower temperatures and improve stability.

this is actually really cool. i might end up geting the strix 1080, or 1070 if there is one

Isn't heatpipe directly on die a cheapo cooler thing? Like that 212 Evo?
