It's a well known fact both crossfire and Sli produce problems with many games.. until these problems are totally solved and anyone can use both Crossfire and Sli. .or in this case just Crossfire to play anygame.. then and only then this card can be a total "TITAN SLAYER" just imagine to try to play your favorite game with Crossfire Disable cause it has problems due driver or compatibility with the game..
LOL it only does better at "games" and benchmarks because they are biased to the companies. Nvidia probably pays game companies a shite ton to help with their egotistic need for superiority.
You would buy the Fury X2 against the Titan X but it still can't be called the Slayer since Titan X is the market's fastest SINGLE gpu (well, was, now the GTX 1080 took dat crown)
lol you still going on with trolling posts? Keep going kid.
stfu with laws and shit retard. lol please tell me if your a nvidia fanboy or not
Dude ive seen you everywhere on gpu boss being a total nvidia fanboy. Dude get a life lol.
A guy with literally a profile named "fanboyhater" could call me anything and I wouldn't care. But since you yourself are EVERYWHERE on similar forums, you should probably look at yourself first.
Gtx 980ti and gtx 970 are the most popular gpus right now. The steam survey conducted months ago said that the most popular gpu was the gtx 970. I'm sorry to break it to you... Nvidia makes great gpus regardless of their acts in the market. I'll buy whatever works best for me, NOT what helps the gpu world. You should too :)
Optimising games is game-sided, NVIDIA tends to "work together" with game companies for optimisation across their own platform while AMD uses things like Mantle API Drivers are going up as time passes I cannot fully judge as I have no money to get the recent of the recent stuff, but with my current GPU I gained about +15FPS with the crimson drivers I'll pay up when NVIDIA comes up with something worth paying for, they seem like Samsung, kind of doing a lowkey ripoff
People keep crying over how AMD has the second GPU in this card but it doesn't really matter as long as it's about the same size and price (which it obviously isn't, looking at the price) Other than that, AMD seems to seriously be coming back in the game now
I may go and take a gander eventually. I've been busy recently.
You can't stop me from replying, it's illegal. Ever heard of freedom of speech? It might be better right now, but after developers optimize the game for dx12, nvidia will still win. *facts*
actualy i dont fanboy my point is that in dx12 its better but yeah just dont reply ok
You're so retarded. You can't blame a company to be so good just because they are selfish. Who cares about DX12? Wait for dx12 to become mainstream and you'll see nvidia wins again. Btw, in dx11 benches gtx 980ti sli will do much better. You must be having fanboy issues.
no it actualy doesnt when u look in the dx12 benchmarks you see that the r9 fury x beats the 980ti in all dx12 games thats because amd wasnt multithreaded and nvidia already was because they are selfish so that means if you 980ti sli against a fury x2 the fury will win maybe in games that are out now like withcer and stuff the 980ti sli will perform better but what does it matter i cna already play every game on 4k with a 980ti sli or r9 fury x2 so thee is no reason to fanboy any of these but once you look wich will be better in the future the fury x2 definetly wins and some features are more then just x2 they also made it a lil better then a crossfire r9 fury x
Been missin' ya at <b>The Write Way</b>, buddy! Hope all's well.
+RetardedGuy Yeah it sucks...but not too much like you who waste hours and hours with retarded comments on forums, do you want a cookie little fatty fanboy?
and we will compare them... when nvidia puts two gpu's on a single card...
This is most probably going to be a full size card with liquid cooling, not a chopped off bit like the Fury X. Rip mini PC's. This could be AMD's comeback with the performance increase over the 980 ti. And considering their record with prices, it'll be priced competitively with the Titan X or a little above. It'll be nice to have this card take only one PCI slot instead of two for a duel card setup, and managing to fit two GPUs on a single board is impressive upon itself. Who knows, it may be priced close to the current 980 ti's average price (we can only hope). Unfortunate that AMD is always too ahead of the game with their stuff. I mean, when DirectX 12 finally becomes relevant, AMD is going to take their time to shine with Zen and all of their 8 core CPUs and their GPUs will probably pull a slight advantage with it as well. Wonder if there was this big of a fuss around Nvidia fans when the R9 390x2 came around.
Nvidia being the monopoly of the GPU market will gladly be better than AMD being a cockblock in the middle of all the shit. Gameworks does do shit. You're probably blind and don't want to admit how amazing gameworks looks and how a supposedly lower performing gpu gets better fps at gameworks rendering than a supposedly higher performing cards by AMD. Here's a video (Actually TEN videos) demonstrating what gameworks DOES. Oh man, it DOES do some SHIT. - 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) 10) Educate yourself.
Seriously, "illunvidiatiGuy" and "You sounds like a kid"? Which school did you go to? (Or did you actually even go to one?) *Shots fired*
Fact: Crimson software sucks.
What do you expect? It's a fucking dual gpu card. Compare SLI gtx 980ti and it'll completely rek that shit up.
12 year old AMD fanboy confirmed. And no, I don't believe in santa. There's more probability of you being 12 year old than an actual 12 year old (sad) With Nvidia, you get what you pay for. With AMD, you pay for good hardware honestly, but it's ruined by money spent on marketing and competitive pricing and not at all any effort spent on drivers and optimising games. Please, I hope the talks some sense into your narrow minded brain. If you even have one that is. :)
