Buy both let the whiners whine.
Are you joking? None of the DX12/Vulkan games were better working on AMD's cards.
well both are at their best meanwhile i have to put a bigass clunky fan next to my little poor old laptop to be able to run good ol' skyrim on the lowest setting as humanly possible with a stable 20~30 fps. lol. be grateful my friends.
I doubt that card has memory clocked to 1250 milli hz. You wouldn't want to use that.
Yes you are right, a 1070ti in Australia is about $700 AUD compared to $1300 AUD. If you are only buying a graphics card Nvidia is cheaper and better for the same performance. It is when you also need to buy a G sync or Free sync monitor that you get a saving on the AMD side. The free sync monitors are a few hundred less than G Sync. If you need a monitor as well, i am considering AMD and Freesync monitor will cost about the same as a Nvidia 1070ti and Gsync monitor.
and just because one or two game, that is intentionally designed for amd gpu, like doom and forza? no u didnt compare it by only one game, u compare it as overall
its the floating point calculations that determine ALL the value of the card the bitcoin mining, the speed of data crunching and the gaming preformance when the preformance gets tough. ive repaired and sold many computers and i can tell you thats the only number you need to look for. amd won again and again. be on the lookout for colorpower components, risky but bleeding edge preformace
Hello, i have an LG lg 34uc79g-b ultrawide monitor with freesync and an RX480 8GB. I want to upgrade my graphics card and i'm thinking of getting an RX Vega 64 or GTX 1080Ti What card should i buy? Since i have freesync would i have disadvantage getting an nvidia card? Should i benefit from Freesync? Take in consideration that the price is equal. Thank you very much for your help
I think your wallet guides your decisions above any knowledge you have anyway. Just buy cheap. That is probably all you can buy. Most people I know that are "AMD people" only buy AMD because that is all they can buy.
Dibayar berapa si lu ngebelain nvidia sampe segitunya wkwkwk
Eleh bocah taunya vga cuma buat game aja ngebacot -_-
I thought the AMD outperformed the 1080ti by 23% not the other way around.
I wanted to get more knowledge about these 2 cards and all i can see in the comments are either on the side of amd or nvidia so i cant really know what is true and what not and all these people who complain about others saying like "amd has cheaper gpu prices" just trigger the nvidia side people and "nvidia has better performance" triggers the amd side. Like why cant people just live with their own preferences/opinions and just not get triggered this world would be so much better place if everyone did so. In my opinion both sides are good and they ave their own strenghts. I myself use nvidia gtx just because i didnt see any amd cards in sale at that time i bought my gtx 960 4gb. Both of these cards 1080 ti and rx vega 64 are very good and as i said "amd and nvidia has their own weaknesses and strenghts" and "google is your friend, use it" research is the key to knowledge. I know my grammar isnt the best and i dont add so many punctuation marks not everyone is born to be english.
I came here for research too and i have everything same to say as @hazardreborn:disqus i can also see all the fanboys already crying into their pillows and using pretty harsh language "looking at you @disqus_jfiELojkhC:disqus" not too professional if you ask me and if you reply with some kind of insult it just proves my point.
never used a Vega card, however my 1080TI Works great :)
Bought a couple of Vega a few months ago, they are great for gaming but seeing that the 1080ti is slightly faster I feel I might have wasted some money and crossfire is terrible in most games. Running on a 4k/60hz monitor on ultra for most games, most games run at ~45-60 fps (Single card). I am planning on using a Samsung CHG90 for gaming which is equivalent to 2 1080 monitors so I expect much higher frame rates. Bigger issues are: -Prices: Bought one at $550 and the other one at $600 but on ebay right now they go for ~$800 which is insane. -Power consumption: I had to replace my 500w PSU. -Heat, they get very hot, I am planning to set a custom loop. -Drivers: sometimes the screen shuts suddenly and I have to hard restart the PC. My overall opinion is that if you can grab it for ~$500 go for it, if not, don't bother with it. I feel like the features that the card include are pretty advanced, but they are not being used correctly and that the drivers are holding this card down. I am an AMD fan, but I am not dumb, and I understand the criticism towards this card. I hope that the next gen NAVI are better and cap compete with Nvidia, but I am starting to doubt about that.
Well, When the amount you paid for AMD's EGG is equal to the amount you would pay for the best video card on the market, then I would argue that you should expect the greatest experience.
Never owned the VEGA. 1080ti is amazing for its price/performance. GTX 1080 is good too. Would'nt roll the dice on these Vega chips now that I know how well Nvidia's work, especially considering Nvidia had the tech manufactured a lot sooner than AMD, who are as usual, Late to the table and carrying less food when they get there.
"Talk about fucking morons" STFU you stupid whining little arrogant child. You came in and whined just as loud as the rest. Stop pointing fingers and acting all high and mighty. You involved your own ignorant-ass and then started name calling. You are just as PETTY and PATHETIC as everyone else in here. Go cry into your pillow, Barbie.
This is the age old conflict. Chevy vs. Ford. Everyone grows up loving one or the other and can find reasons that it dominates. Both these cards are sick. Truly out of reach for most Family having PC elitists.
or don't talk about things you have no understanding of. if your technical knowledge ends at random numbers you see on the screen don't comment on it. the RX vega has a much larger bus width than the 1080 which makes them /almost/ identical in that aspect. if you have 1 lane road with the speed limit of 120 mph vs a 4 lane road with a speed limit of 60 mph you're moving more traffic through the 4 lane road even though it's a slower speed and let me stop you before you try and go and write up an angry rebuttal with "ITS STILL FASTER IN PERFORMANCE" this direct line of comments is about memory not about the overall performance of the gpu.
Last I checked this was a comparison of the 1080ti wasn't it? All these comments are back and forth, using the 1080 in the their examples for price and the 1080ti for performance. Who is ignorant now peeps? Talk about fucking morons. Came in the comments to research and see if I can get some info since I don't tilt to either side and all I see is fanboys crying.
True, but he didn't say 1080ti, he said 1080. There's a big difference between the two, namely the 1080 is 8gb where the 1080ti is 11gb. Meanwhile the vega 64 also has only 8gb of vram. So the VEGA 64 does with 8gb what the 1080ti needs 11gb to do.
Idiot Vulkan is just a successor to OpenGL it has nothing to do with "Windoze" good luck running your "Vulkan" in DOS, IDIOT!
