AMD has just released the fastest video card in the world.


Maybe if you have six of them all on one board in a hex-Crossfire setup you might be able to get 30 FPS on Crysis 3

Maybe at least 25...

Don't humor me.
One R7 265 is enough for 40fps on high settings + FXAA.

Not going to happen on an R7 265.
R9 270x, maybe. Without any AA.

Max settings. That includes FXAA, SSAA and MSAA. Also can't forget anisotropic although that doesn't take much GPU power.

No. Way.
It literally took SLI Titans to get solid 60 FPS at 1440p with all settings at the maximum.

I really don't believe these incoming reports for the GTX 880, considering that they cite that the 880 will have a 256-bit memory bus.

It's techpowerup.
Never believe them.
250w of power draw? No way. 750Ti shows that that is too high.
I don't know about 4GB, though I doubt it.
Maxwell is supposedly out this summer, IMHO. So we'll see then.
I just hope the 880Ti is released with the rest of the cards. If it comes out months after the first wave of cards, I'll just wait until Q1 2015 for some R9 390x power.

Now this alleged leak is easier to disbelieve than the Nvidia one; It's too good to be true.

I dig dat R9 390x performance numbers.

However... It is still speculation.

Windows 8. Can't stand the glassy feel (and dumb GUI) of OS X, and too dependant on ordinary consumer software to switch to Linux.

Edit: That's probably the joke option, but I have used MS-DOS lately.

I have found out that I can order parts from Amazon.com in order to get the cheaper US prices rather than pay the inflated Canadian prices, even taking the exchange rate into consideration.

You don't have to. You just type the name of the program you want in the Search box or create a shortcut on the desktop. Or better yet, you can install a free start menu, which takes about as long as it does to install a web browser.
