It is not really relevant anymore as you can not read the ASIC value on modern cards anyway.

I did a bench thread for it a long time ago and generally the higher the ASIC the higher it was possible to OC the GPU and less voltage it needed to do it.

Another thing I have noticed is a high ASIC does not mean you are guaranteed the best overclock as sometimes these chips don't like extra voltage at all. A good example of this is the Kingpin 980 Ti cards I mentioned earlier, they are beasts at overclocking on stock volts but don't like any extra at all.

Sometimes you can get the same performance with a low ASIC GPU/extra voltage as you can with a high ASIC card/less voltage where the latter will not take any extra voltage.

Rumour: Nvidia Ampere might launch as GeForce GTX 2070 and 2080 on April 12th

Quote:
It's been silent with new graphics card releases from Nvidia. We've mentioned it a couple of times already, we really do not expect Volta with HBM2 to reach consumer grade graphics anytime soon. The chatter is about to get big as the first indications are here that Nvidia will be launching a GA104, a GPU called Ampere, on April 12th.

From the man in Taiwan. Feel free to verify or call BS I will leave that up to you. Just know that if you thought RAM was expensive enough already you're in for a further shock.

Global DRAM output value to rise over 30% in 2018, says DRAMeXchange

Output value for the global DRAM memory industry will increase more than 30% to US$96 billion in 2018, following a robust 76% surge, according to DRAMeXchange.

The industry output value for the fourth quarter of 2017 climbed 14.2% sequentially to nearly US$21.9 billion, driven by a seasonal pickup in demand for smartphones and rising mobile DRAM prices, said DRAMeXchange.

DRAM contract quotes for the first quarter of 2018 will continue their upward trend, DRAMeXchange indicated. Mobile DRAM prices will increase around 3% on quarter, though smartphone sales have started to slow down. Meanwhile, PC DRAM prices are expected to rise about 5% sequentially while prices of server-use memory will see a 3-5% rally.

Major DRAM vendors including Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix and Micron Technology will continue to benefit from continued growth in the memory prices, as well as lower manufacturing costs through process technology advancements, in the first quarter of 2018, according to DRAMeXchange.

Industry leader Samsung saw its DRAM revenues grow 14.5% sequentially to US$10.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, while second-ranked SK Hynix' DRAM revenues climbed 14.1% on quarter to US$6.3 billion. Samsung and SK Hynix took a combined 74.7% share of the global DRAM market in the fourth quarter.

The first (and only) Core i9 mobile processor has made an appearance.

Awesome... That'll lower GPU prices :/

They're getting greedy. The report says it all, how many billions they've buggered us for over the past X months/years etc. Once a corporation starts making that sort of money it doesn't like giving it up easily.

God, I am just so happy I really don't want or need any PC components at the moment. I think my Ryzen APU project can stay on ice for a while /rolls eyes.

Can you please stop being so cynical about everything? There is a RAM shortage. Meaning demand is super high. So obviously they are going to be making more money per ram die sold because you increase prices to deter demand and increase supply. You can thank the hundreds of millions of mobile devices sold for taking up production lines. That's where most of the money comes from. Considering less than 5 FABs in the world make memory and most of which is owned by Samsung, this isn't unexpected.

At least someone is using some sense here. Thank you.

All i seem to hear or see about is mining is the blame and nothing else, Mining is some of the blame but not 100% of it.

Please stop being so cynical about 8gb ram costing over £100? hmm, let me see.... Nope ! I'm actually not being cynical I am being real. It sucks, and at no point am I going to say "There there, it's actually OK".

Any way 2018 will suck, that's for sure. I guess for now I will just have to hold out and leave everything as it sits. Once 2019 hits, though? then it will backfire on them because China is already starting to ready itself for making lots of RAM. Once those Chinese fabs come online? then it will crash.
