AMD announce GCN 2.0 graphics! But don’t get too excited just yet…

Yes, that’s right AMD’s HD 8000 series graphics cards are on their way.

The story is too old to be commented.

They should make DirectX 12 cards. You know, for future proof reasons.

darthkai2342d ago

That would be a smart idea, if not for one little fact:
There is no DX12.

SilentNegotiator2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

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.

pandehz2342d ago

MS needs to make dx 12 first lmfao

why they make DX12 cards when they can make DX9000 Cards
You know, for future proof reasons.

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.

TemplarDante2342d ago

@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.

FlyingFoxy2342d ago

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.

bumnut2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

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.

Tsar4ever012341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

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.
