Meanwhile, in the red corner........
« on: May 31, 2016, 07:57:34 AM »
AMD might finally reveal their Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs at a live streaming event during Computex 2016 in addition to the Radeon 490 card.

NVIDIA and AMD has been battling it out for the past few years in terms of who has the greatest video cards. The former recently unveiled their GTX 1080 which surpasses all of the current GPUs available today, but the latter may be storing a surprise with the new Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs.

PC users who are budget-conscious tend to move towards Radeon cards because they offer more value in a good ratio with the price. However, NVIDIA's selections are still more powerful despite their steep price tags.

AMD could also offer more accelerated processing units (APU) besides the Radeon RX 480 Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 video cards, ChristianToday has learned. They could be featured alongside the Radeon R9 490 in the upcoming livestream event.

The GTX 1080 has been shown to beat even NVIDIA's own most powerful card from last generation at roughly half the price off. AMD would need to dish out video cards that could do the same or even better if they want more consumers to choose their GPUs.

AMD has unveiled the new Polaris Radeon R9 490 that will go toe to toe with the GTX 1080 at the high-end range. Unfortunately, there are still no benchmarking results available for a direct comparison of the two.

The Radeon R9 490 using the Polaris architecture will feature HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.3, Neurogadget reported. It is expected to launch in June which is also the same time the GTX 1070 will be released.

AMD's Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPU architecture is said to be less powerful than the new Pascal technology from NVIDIA. However, the price value of the Radeon cards could be their entry point in the market.

Official specs of the cards from AMD are still nowhere to be found. NVIDIA's GTX 1080 has 8GB VRAM and a power requirement of just 180W.

AMD is expected to reveal their full line of Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 video cards such as the Radeon RX 480 or the R9 490 at the Computex 2016 event. Fans will finally be able to see whether it can go up against the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070.

490x should be same performance as 1070 which I would of thought might bring an end to the fury x. We will hopefully know more in 24 hours.

I'd advise against crossfire - the AMD drivers can be a bit dodgy.
p.s. Glen you are still better off w/o youtube tags...just dump the link.

Hm...interestingly this link won't work:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwlQvjwYFEM&feature=youtu.be&t=21m57s

(and of course as we've seen above the youtu.be is not recognised by the current module either)

but removing the "&feature=youtu.be" part works:
Code: [Select]

Maybe I should look for an upgrade to this extension package...
Edit: there isn't a new one, sadly.   

Edit 2;

Actually this works as well - the set time can't be parsed by this extension.  It's a shame, innit?
