    We all see the rumors floating around about next gen cards, Which Rumors do you think are correct and do you agree with them?

    If these rumors are true, will you be saving for the next gen card? Or sticking with the hardware you have? depositphotos_74980647-stock-photo-next-generation-concept.jpg

    I believe the rumours that the next gen higher end cards are going to spend electricity like crazy. Waiting for some kind of a crypto-crash or for Ethereum to switch to PoS to snag an affordable second hand GPU.

    i see in your signature you got a 3080ti from EVGA, is there a reason for going EVGA? Or brand doesn't matter to you?

    I'm looking forward to the mGPU using chiplets

    I just upgraded and this PC will keep me for the next 5 years so I'm good, after the RTX 4000 series I'll jump on the RTX 5000 series 5 years from now.

    I think at the time of buying it, I was just very eager to buy a card for my new system (which I sold by the way as I could not use Windows 11 for work) so I did not spend much time on picking the brand.
    I do not have a preference as far as brands, I just want to product to be the best it can be. :D

    I am not sure if you will be able to wait THAT long.:D
    You see how things go in electronic area, one year is a long time. ;)

    My last PC was about ~4.5 years old, so yes, I can wait that long. ;)

    this is what amd is working on.... granted still mostly rumours and speculation... but amd's already somewhat let it out that CDNA (used in workstation and server class cases) is mGPU chiplets.

    basically the flagship is either 2 or 4 chiplets jammed together on a interposer then dropped on the card with then GDDR6/6x like usual, but is capable of being dropped on an interposer and then paired with HBM2 or 3 on the same interposer.

    Just for comparison.. the 6900xt/6950xt cards have 5120 SPs... this rumour related image suggests 15360 SPs.

    That would suggest potentially triple the performance. Granted it's grain of salt... but the prospect of moving from monolithic design to a chiplet design with a unified infinity cache, just like how moving from a monolithic CPU such as the AMD FX 8350 or intel's actually still current methodology... to Zen (ryzen) allowed for the serious jump in core and performance improvements we hadn't seen for basically over a decade. This is good for CDNA applications for amd because it essentially allows them to start cranking out massive performance fit into a similar space and improved efficiency while making it massively cheaper to produce with far less faulty chips.

    I'm not solid on it but for CPU and Video I do tend to go with AMD as much as I can I think its been that way for the last 15 years or so.

    I kind of like AMD and I liked ATI for GPUs before that as well. I got more into PC hardware at about the time both companies were making breakthrough chips (Athlon64 and R300, aka Radeon 9700 Pro), so I guess that that helped, but I certainly look at both sides when I'm purchasing new stuff. That's how I ended up with an Intel CPU, as, at the time, it was either that or AMD FX and I think that there is little doubt that I made the right call when I broke my streak of 4 consecutive AMD CPUs (5 if I count the Sempron in our old secondary PC). Under normal circumstances, there always seems to be an Intel and Nvidia "tax", at least where I live, so bang for buck is generally on AMD's side. Also, regarding my current GPU, it helped that people were using AMD much more for mining, so, during a previous crypto crash, it was relatively easy to find a used AMD card cheap, extending my ATI/AMD GPU streak to 6.

    BUT! Is it still a streak if you owned an Intel PC in the interim? :p

    Well, the GPU streak is unbroken:
    • ATI Rage Pro Turbo 8MB
    • ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
    • ATI Radeon HD 4670 512MB
    • AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB
    • AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB
    • AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB
    The CPU streak is definitely broken:
    • AMD K6-2 400MHz
    • AMD Athlon64 3000+
      • AMD Sempron 2200+ (secondary PC, aka the typewriter)
    • AMD Athlon II X2 240
    • AMD Phenom II X4 940
    • Intel Core i7-4790Kombobreaker
    I just realized that my current GPU has a thousand times (1024 times, to be precise) more VRAM than my first 3D card.

    Nice one! Yeah I remember the old days, where 8MB was crazy and even 8MB of RAM was acceptable. I remember I had 16MB of RAM and I was the envy of all my friends! :D
