How is a desktop GPU going to have more up to date drivers than the professional drivers?

So it's about as good as a 1080. Not bad, but will the consumer card clock this high? because I bet they binned the crap out of the Frontier.

Oh well. I suppose it's better than nothing. The only issue I foresee (and foresaw forever ago) was that HBM2 will drive up the price so it's likely to cost as much as a 1080 and no one will buy it.

Ah well, maybe next round, AMD.

I like how the red team has gone the Swedish flag route for the design of this GPU

$999 on newegg, $1499 for the watercooled version. I hope those numbers are just placeholders on their site until the cards are actually in stock.

doubt it - those are the lowered "prices", they were originally something like 1199 and 1799 respectively.

That fire strike score is a little weak, even my stock 1070 is not far behind.



Stock 4790K and 16GB 2133Mhz Ram too.

So your 1070 with mature drivers that are designed to take as many shortcuts as possible regarding rendering (without being called out for cheating again) is almost as fast as a card with release day drivers that are designed to render as perfectly as possible?

You see, the difference between a professional graphics card and drivers and a consumer gaming card and drivers is that you, as a consumer gamer prefer performance to quality while a professional requires quality and performance is just a desirable trait.

They use a different set of drivers from consumer products that tend to get less frequent updates. Or atleast the updates don't focus on games...



No wonder they aren't giving out review samples, people already seem to be comparing these GPUs to consumer spec cards regardless. Admittedly this is AMD's fault by showing it off playing games....

I fell for it, didn't realize they were workstation cards until shortly after I posted pricing above. Also, the Frontier edition name makes me think Founders edition and incorrectly make the assumption they are targeted to the same market. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will make that mistake.
