Changing an ATi branded card to an AMD branded one. That's treason.ID: h6czuizID: h6d5lnh
Yup, especially since they were the original green team.....ID: h6decga
hate the management who did this.
Whats wrong with ATI brand?ID: h6dufmh
Having unified branding is good marketing. You can now have a "full AMD PC", for instance. It's not like ATI was a massive brand that carried a lot of weight either. Sure, enthusiasts at the time knew about them, but whatever small outcry came out of that rebranding was nothing compared to how much AMD values their "full solution" brand image right now. They effectively get to appear twice as often in the news as Intel and Nvidia.
Did you use the 3850 the WHOLE time?
doing rough math
-> 2x: 4850
-> 3x: 7950
-> 3x: 6700
You're getting something like a 15-20x uplift. Nice upgrade.ID: h6ca68h
If the CPU is as old as his 3850 there will be a LOT of Performance left on the road.ID: h6ckndf
Spending that much on a gpu and not upgrading the rest of the system would be absurd. Better to get a 470 or something and spend the rest on a cpID: h6cu5oy
its closer to 40-45x perf uplift
but its hard to fairly compare them
generally in games where the 3850 gets 5fps , the 6700XT can do ~220fps
0.4 TF vs 14.5 TF also is a 29x specs difference , but the IPC uplift makes that 29x perf difference 40-45x in real life applicationsID: h6eoh51
The issue with IPC is that it's context specific. And yes, newer titles make assumptions about hardware that don't apply to older cards.
In the case of "it gets 5FPS" it might be a case where there's insufficient VRAM. The 3850 only has 512MB (though 3300MHz system RAM now has similar performance).
Nice! How is the cpu holding up in that build?
GPU’s have not improved the last 20 years. They just got bigger and hotter, this picture proves it. Checkmate.ID: h6deged
in 10yrs it will be as big as a mini ATX case.ID: h6errot
Yeah its 25% longer for 40x the performance. No improvement at all, huh?ID: h6esfpc
You forgot that it's 50% wider and 400% deeperID: h6d6ouo
And consume more power
Sure hope the rest of the computer got an upgrade otherwise that gpu is near useless. The rest of the system wouldn't be able to keep up with and it's right back to square 1.
Haha. Fat fingers. That’s what I meant. Quite the upgrade!
It's been a while since the last time I saw a card that doesn't have a stock air cooler, awesome memories and awesome upgrade.
Wow nice upgrade. Enjoy my friend. A whole new world for ya.
Are you truly replacing a 3850 with a 6700 or just posing them for the shot? The 3850 wouldn't really have been usable for much these days.ID: h6e5adw
Yeah after going to university, been on laptop the whole time and neglected my desktop. I can show follow up shot in the old system. Games I were playing aren't too intensive like CSGO but just got a new 4K monitor that doesn't take DVIID: h6eh5sx
There's always a DVI to HDMI cable. 🙂 Not that the 3850 could reach 4K.
How much did you pay for the new card?
Sir what CPU do you even have
Looking back, it's bizarre we now call AMD the Red team.
