Not only that, but the card is 4 slots high and passively cooled by extreme through-draft!
The fanless card requires excellent airflow around it. You can't simply slap it in the case and expect from it to work flawlessly.
It requires air conditioning, at the very least.
R9 380 was already 3y old re-bagged card when came out
Yep, thankfully workstation cards will also be clocked within the sensible performance/watt curve of the GPU, unlike gaming variants that need to go for glory in the FPS charts in reviews.
DirectX Raytracing (DXR) Support to AMD GPUs Coming Soon, Similar FPS Hit As GeForce GTX Expected
Not sure how reliable this news is tbh. At the same time like GTX I dont see the point in raytracing for these GPU tbh
Awful news. We need 4K gaming en masse, not all kind of silly gimmicks and eye candies with doubtful value which lower to 720p the resolutions.
RTX Titan has only 72 RT cores, of course its ray-tracing performance will be extremely weak.
If they make it, at least try to make it quality, not awful.
It's a rushed technology, and it shows. The necessary hardware to run it properly either doesn't exist yet, or is too expensive for the mass market. Pushing 4K acceptance would have been far more practical!
If advanced graphics techniques are stooopid compared to sheer resolution, then why can no 4K game look as realistic as a 1080p Blu-ray movie?
Because the aim in game development is animation, not photo-realism. I have asked this previously and game developers said that the aim was never photo-realism.
If you look at the march-of-progress of so-called AAA games over the years then getting to photorealism absolutely is the trend
Wasn't exactly rushed, took 10 years to develop it.
Yet the hardware can barely run it, that's my point. It absolutely tanks frame rates, which isn't practical in my opinion.
Will be interesting to see if the compute monster Vega outshines Navi at RT.
Watch Navi outshine rtx series cards at ray tracing
One can wish right?
The Hybrid patent AMD got, might be able to pull that through.
I think it will easy
Anyone with Navi 5700x and The Division 2 plus 1440p can you run Ultra preset please, with under Video options DX12 enabled and Lower latency setting.
The Navi GPU can be undervolted.
Would be a plus if you had i7 8700k at 4.7 all cores
Thanks in advanced.
Wait until tomorrow, 8600K would suffice?
This is what a blower card could be if manufacturers got off their ass.
4.5 slots thick, extends above the PCB, enormous surface area, much mass and a great big fan (not pictured) to shove a ton of air through without noisy RPM.
What about the weight though? Assuming most of that is a heatsink - it could way over 2kg...
