I wonder how much money this saved them over printing out a different box?

Someone call a box factory.

To be fair, as long as you have a good power supply it won't have much issue carrying more than a 75 watt load on the pci-e.

Yeah, for some reason I thought they were all busted but they're all working. Talk about a huge brainfart because I was even holding one of the modded in guns when I wrote that. I did get a new monitor though where the calibration is all fucked so I might have seen the settings were off and assumed the worst without thinking.

Derp me.

So after the 1060 overcomes the FE bullshit and drops to $250+ AIBs without being stung by the Pascal markup flim flam bug due to increased yields on the new gp106s we will see a good old fashioned battle of the mainstreams.

I'm still reserved about availability and markup though especially if nVidia moved ahead the production and release date of the card by a month.

For a patch which was suppose to help with mod compatibility it has destroyed all of my installed mods.

I don't share the same concerns. I think the 1060 will be priced right at the same point and supply issues will be largely worked out by then. This could totally derail AMDs strategy of chasing marketshare and ceding performance. AIBs are rumored to be pretty upset with the margins on the 480 so it will be interesting to see what they do for the 1060.

It'll be interesting to see what's what but there's quite a bit of headroom left for AIBs to capitalize on overclocking the 480s since they'll have much better cooling and an 8pin to properly feed the card with enough power. The 'entry-level' Sapphire Nitro series will come shipped at ~1350 MHz and the PowerColor Devil is rumored to be 1400MHz. A reference 480 was pushed to 1425 on air which outperformed an overclocked 390X and Nano so there's still plenty of gold in them hills if you have the proper equipment while still likely being cheaper than a reference 1060 and drying up any performance lead it'll have.

I guess what it comes down to is that I am an overclocker. I generally write off reference numbers because the only time it'll have stock speeds is the three seconds it takes for me to dial in a higher clock and hit apply. For me to make a proper comparison between the 480 and 1060 would mean I'd have to wait for both to get their custom cards to stretch their legs but I feel confident that price:performance will be in favor of the 480 when the dust settles.

I won't mind eating my hat on this though.

Btw, one of the other interesting tidbits that came to light was that there were at lest 2 slightly different PCB's of the same card... not as a jab at AMD.. just as a curious fact. ;p

There were rumors that the Polaris XT chips weren't using the entire Polaris architecture and that Apple gobbled them all up for some kind of 'RX 485' but those rumors were laid to rest after someone broke down their card to show and compare.

There are, however, 4GB cards which shipped that had an extra 4GB chip disabled in the BIOS which could then be flashed to get all 8GB.

10% faster is good and all but if the 6GB version is priced at $300 then it's hard to say if that's enough sway to pull would-be 480 owners to the 1060 especially once AIBs are released which would still be cheaper than a reference 1060. This is especially concerning if the 1060s suffer from higher markup due to supply issues and has a low overclock ceiling like the 1070 and 1080 since the base clocks are pushed high right out of the gate.

Wait for benchmarks has been the saying lately and this is all I can do in the meantime. If it comes out at $250 with a mountain ready to ship then that's a whole new ballgame.

News Comments > Nuka Time is Last DLC for Fallout 4
5. Re: Nuka Time is Last DLC for Fallout 4 Jul 5, 2016, 22:54 Wallshadows
 
I'd like to see Bethesda make a case for $70 Season Pass out of this. Two mini-expansions, a quest chain, and what are essentially mods is pretty shitty on their part when the whole point of increasing the price was to bring more premium content after Far Harbor. It was bad enough when they charged for it sight-unseen and now Bethesda is already to drive the final nail in to the coffin.

I mean, they kept to their word that there would be more premium content after Far Harbor with Nuka World but I don't think anyone really thought that would be the end of it seeing as how much filler was stuffed in to the pass.

I did a literal last minute snag of Banished and Final Fantasy 14. Going to start off fresh and use it to satisfy my MMO desire until Legion along with a pile of other games on back log.

There have been leaks in regards to the RX 490 but I wouldn't look to much in to them until confirmed but ~700 GB/s bandwidth, 16GB HBM2, and a 4096-bit bus at 200w sounds like an absolute monster if true.

The future looks bright for AMD and they should thank nVidia for helping them out so much.
