updated a little man this long hard work
I love how there's so much info about AMD but only 8 lines about Nvidia
im working on it look at it now
im working & coding the page all in notepad++
Great post smogsy An ideal thread to direct the countless "which GPU posts?"
The thread title should end with "but were afraid to ask" though
I think I would have preferred it if you had done two separate threads, one for AMD and one for NVidia with links to each other. This would have helped with stopping any potential AMD v NVidia debates.
I think this way's better, because in separate threads, you'd get fanboy galore, and you'd just have two threads of hyperbole.
I hope this thread does work, if done well it could be very useful to people.
I also hope the Dons are also very strict in this thread to keep things in check. Is there anyway when the Dons delete posts that they can take the empty spaces with them as this rather spoils the look of a thread.
fair big update, Working on Nvidia stuff now & also running Mutiple Video streams to learn things I may have missed
lot of developer videos. as you can imagine this thread will take time so don't beat me for taking time doing the Nvidia or AMD sections ive probably put in 4 hours+ into this so far
Great idea for thread. Next time people bring up a 770 vs 280x or similar question, can just link this.
xDMA deserves a mention in the Crossfire section.
Good shout that. Definitely deserves a mention and explanation.
Do people know that you could do Multi-GPU without bridges years ago ?
Hyperbole aside, it just looks they've evolved that (Some stuff on that AMD page is cringe worthy )
Is it possible for this to be a beta version of a definitive thread? Once everyone has had their say and Smogsy has decided what's relevant, perhaps a new clean thread can take it's place? (hope this wouldn't make more work for you Smogsy feel free to tell me to keep my opinions to myself)
found a lot of cringe worthy stuff both of Nvidia & AMD thats why i had a few breaks lol
you mean a copy/paste of the first post then close stickie it? not a bad idea at all
Some of it annoys me, but as I'm predominately an AMD owner, I see their stuff more.
I bet tons of people are oblivious to the fact that bridgeless Crossfire isn't something new.
It reminds me of Sony, they had motion sensors with Six Axis, but they made a new motion thing, it's like "Did you guys forget you already had that feature?!"
It makes sense to have it bridgeless these days because of the increased pci-e bandwidth. 16GB of bandwidth on pci-e 2.0 x16 and 32GB for pci-3.0 x16, but only 900MB on a Xfire/SLI bridge.
Pheeew !...I was about to put a sauce pan on my head to prepare for the fall out glad it's straight forward for you Smogsy
Which is ironic, given AMD's aversion to PCI-E 3.0 on their "flagship" AM3+ platform, which means it's Intel allowing them to do that
So XDMA Crossfire on an AMD AM3+ set up has an instant disadvantage.
It'd be interesting if someone did bridgeless Crossfire on a 7970 using PCI-E 3.0.
I'm running on pci-e 2.0 x16 x16 and previously i was using x8 x8. I got a small boost in benchmarks (few hundred points in Valley) but theres not much difference. For the non benchmarker pci-e 2.0 is still up to the job.
