Yes, that’s right AMD’s HD 8000 series graphics cards are on their way.
They should make DirectX 12 cards. You know, for future proof reasons.
That would be a smart idea, if not for one little fact: There is no DX12.
Stop apologizing for AMD. We all know that AMD needs to take their cancer curing pills and get to making DX15 cards from their oxygen powered hover-office chairs.
MS needs to make dx 12 first lmfao
@OneAboveAll why they make DX12 cards when they can make DX9000 Cards You know, for future proof reasons. teh pc race
Well I am certain these cards are DirectX 11.1 upgradeable to DirectX 12 or whatever 11.x number that comes up next. In the same way that DirectX 10 cards can utilize DirectX 11 if you download it and so on.
Pc gaming bragging rights right there...wait im a gamer i play games not graphics that´s right.
@Oneaboveall.. and with DX11.1 being only for Windows 8...
Would be nice if one of these HD-8xxx GPU's would be one of the chips Sony picks to serve along side the PS Orbis's derivative A-10 apu using CrossFireX support.
Uh, not a good idea, multi gpu setups still suffer from micro stutter. This is why when i upgraded my monitor to a 27" i got one with 1920x1080 resolution with 120hz refresh.. framerate is everything, and as long as i keep a high end single card for 2-3 years tops i can run at this res with games at a silky smooth 60+FPS.
Why buy a 120hz monitor if you run your games at 60? I got a 27" 2560 x 1440 @ 60hz monitor and it looks much better than 1920 x 1080. I have 2 570's and don't get any stuttering, I had a crossfire setup a few years ago that did have stutter though.
CrossfireX w discreet GPU doesn't ease graphic workload off the the APU's GPU? Damn, then whats the point of even suggesting a another GPU in all those AMD advertising vids. I'm not sure I like the fact that the orbis might not have a discreet GPU and only relying on the one built in the APU. I figure sony decided on this to help keep hardware cost low, but......mmmmphh.
