Following the release of NVIDIA’s Pascal Based “10xx” series GPUs, they have pretty much dominated the market thanks to their high end variants, the GeForce GTX Titan X (P), 1080,1070. NVIDIA expected these GPUs to top the gaming industry. Their plans did go well, until AMD responded and shattered them with the new Price/Performance King the RX 480. A GPU that could outrun the 1080 when put in Crossfire all that in just a fraction of the 1080’s price.
Radeon RX 490 Allegedly Faster Than The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Nvidia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun, will officially unveil the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti on January 4th, 2017 @ CES 2017. However, before the card was even released, massive details have been leaked stating that the final piece of the Pascal puzzle boasts 12 GB GDDR5/X VRAM, combined with 3,328 CUDA Cores, 12 Billion Transistors, 384 GB/s Memory Bandwidth and a whopping 1,503 MHz Base Clock. This Graphics card will provide the Titan X’s performance at nearly half the price.
This GPU was meant to be the Top End Card as well as the leader of the pack. But, as rumors started spreading about the RX 490 NVIDIA found itself in massive trouble. The RX 490 from AMD’s Vega 10 is a GPU that is reportedly said to have 16/32 GB OF HBM2 MEMORY along with 512 GB/s or 1TB of memory bandwidth. Now comparing these two, which GPU graphics card do you think is more powerful, AMD Radeon RX 490 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below
