of the year, the naming convention will be similar to CCC. And if this slide is any indicator, the first version will be out this month. Good to see, hopefully it works well. It's better for all of us consumers if AMD comes back swinging. Quite frankly, NVIDIA is a little too comfy up top at the moment

Social interactions? Notifications? WTF?! It's a graphics card, not an online shop or game. Jeezus, I could barley stand CCC bloatware and now this?
Please, the last one to leave the AMD room, please turn the light off.

Sorry its still Invidia! Too many issues with anything related to AMD/ATi. Deal with people like Autodesk, makers of Autocad, Maya, and Max and without question there are too many problems with AMD Gfx cards and their hideous drivers lest I mention third-party apps that just don't play nice with AMD/ATI.. I'll take something THAT WORKS RELIABILITY then more bling and blong.

Yeah, seems like a lot of bullshit included in what is supposed to be merely a graphics driver. It's already a pain if you forget to unclick the checkbox to install their idiotic "gaming evolved" nonsense, sounds like this is going to make that aspect hugely worse.

Time will tell, but I'm not hopeful. I may have to go to Nvidia just to get rid of this nonsense.

They're comfy alright... and will continue to be.

In fact, Nvidia increased their lead more substantially than they did between Q4 2014 and Q1 2015, with the company now sitting at 82% desktop GPU market share, up from 77% last quarter.


If AMD doesn't get bought out before they go under... NOW that would be better for consumers. And by that I mean, have someone run the company that knows what they are doing.

I don't know about that, AMD has been innovating lately, more so than Nvidia (one might argue). High bandwidth memory wasn't enough to conclusively dethrone Nvidia from the performance crown, but this was also their first foray into that tech.

Even today, a Radeon Fury (the air cooled version, like an ASUS Strix with custom cooling) is a serious contender to the 980, in some cases threatening the 980ti for performance.

And this is the first generation HBM design.

AMD is innovating and is still serious competition. Which is a good thing, monopolies tend to stagnate and deteriorate.

HBM is innovation but it wasn't done by AMD alone, it's not even proprietary to AMD. Other than that, only thing they invented is artificially locking features in drivers so the older cards can't use them and bumping price tags like nVidia does.
Lower and more fair pricing was keeping them afloat for a long time (also mining crypto currency with GCN was much better than with nVidia) now they are just as bad as nVidia with not so good performance per watt. We are not talking about Fury here, they have many more actual models than just Fury based cards.
And those models are mostly slower than their predecessors (290 is faster than 380, 290x is faster than 380x, 280x is faster than 380x and 385x etc etc) and they are basically re-branding their 3 year old chips. And those chips are huge and they draw a ton of power (up to 290watts for 280x!!! gtx 980Ti uses that much!)

It was actually devised by AMD and Hynix was called in later to help and later mass produce. Now Samsung is involved too. It's also at ver 2.0. Ver 2.0 doubles on ver 1.0 performance. ATI used it in one of their cards (1.0 that is)..

HBM won't be prominent until 2016...when they next phase of video card cost rape comes in...

it was a joint effort which AMD couldn't not fund, like any other (ddr5 for instance) so Hynix and Samsung are free to sell HBM to whoever they want. Guess who is going to be a bigger customer and buy more HBM chips - AMD or nVidia? nVidia used ten fold more gddr5 chips than AMD will ever use.

Shame really.
