      It still isn't the BIG Pascal that will launch next year, but beating the GTX-980Ti with a much much lower power envelope is nothing to sneeze at either.

        Agreed, pretty impressive. Can't wait to see how the Ti will perform.

          It'll be great to benchmark both Polaris and Pascal cards together soon. I'll buy Polaris gpu if AMD gets it right this time.

            What I find interesting is that this actually consumes more power than the previous generation, GTX 980. (165W -> 180W). I kinda had hoped that they were going to the opposite direction.

              The 256 bit memory bus seems to be limiting performance, to match R9 Fury at least 384 bit and a slightly higher memory clock would have been needed. But at least GDDR5X is at the same level as GDDR5 with 512 bit memory bus from the R9 290X. I guess memory speed will increase a bit with OC cards. Will be interesting to see the difference at very high resolutions. For full hd the card is overkill...

                500 WRecommended System Power (W)3
                8-PinSupplementary Power Connectors
                1 - 7680x4320 at 60 Hz RGB 8-bit with dual DisplayPort connectors or 7680x4320 at 60 Hz YUV420 8-bit with on DisplayPort 1.3 connector.
                2 - DisplayPort 1.2 Certified, DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 Ready.
                3 - Recommendation is made based on PC configured with an Intel Core i7 3.2 GHz processor. Pre-built system may require less power depending on system configuration.


                Cost data from: https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/nvidia-livestream-event-and-geforce-gtx-series-1000-announcement.html
                $599 USD, there will be a founders edition as well for 699, it is unknown what that edition brings. The card will be available starting May 27th.
                The GeForce GTX 1070 is announced as well. That product will offer a good 6.5 TFLOPS of single precision performance and still get 8GB of GDDR5 memory, not GDDR5X. The card as well will be released in a founders edition. The basis model will cost 379 USD and the founders edition is going to cost 449 USD. The GeForce GTX 1070 will reach the market a bit later at June 10th, that might be due to custom AIB partner designs and releases released and showed off right after Computex.

                Bye, bye 390x ;-)

                  Supposedly, it's like this and not mentioned much because the actual efficiency is a magnitude better. It's not just using more power to push more performance.

                  EDIT: Still awaiting for practical benchmarks to really solidify an opinion. Can't wait for the Quake 3 benchmark. /s

                    Thanks GreekGeek for the official Linux support confirmation. Not a huge surprise, but good to hear.
