Picking up from where we left off this morning, AMD has unveiled their plans for their next GPU tech day, including plans for a product showcase webcast.

AMD’s GPU 2014 Tech Day will be taking place on September 25th. As part of the event AMD will be holding a product showcase at 3pm EDT (19:00 UTC) that they will be webcasting live to the public. AMD’s press release doesn’t give any further details on what they’ll be showing off, but given AMD’s earlier enthusiast GPU tease, it’s a safe bet that they’ll be showing off the aforementioned GPU.

AnandTech will be attending the event, so we'll also have more details as it happens. Look forward to it.

    I've got two 6950 I'm relatively happy with right now, but given similar performance/$ I'd probably go with NV next time... They've got their act together when it comes to drivers. If AMD comes out with something far ahead in performance/$ I'd still end up with two red cards. Had a single GTX 260 before the Radeons and another Radeon before that btw.

    It always makes more sense to wait until both company's current lineups are out anyway, as it'll either spur a price war or stabilize often nutty launch prices.

    The sheer amount of complaints recently about NVIDIA drivers, blue screens, driver resets in Windows, etc etc has been pretty deafening.

    Honestly, I would have generally agreed if it wasn't for this recently. It's much more of a toss up in the driver area than it seems.

    The thing is that while both companies have driver bugs, ncidia fixes theirs in a timely manner usually. The 320.xx series drivers had some major problems but a couple of months later and they've been mostly resolved. Last time I used and cards(5870) there were significant crashes and blue screens that were never resolved the entire 1.5 years I had the card.

    Also the frame pacing issue is quite bad and even the 'fixed' drivers remain quite interior to nvidia. There is a lot I don't like about Nvidia especially their business practices but it is hard to argue that their products are not fundamentally higher quality than AMD. That is why they are usually able to command a price premium even at similar performance levels.

    I don't want the fastest gpu. I only want good priced nvidia GPU as in my area, computational physics and chemistry, CUDA is the dominant tech for GPU acceleration. And nvidia gaming GPU is the perfect choice (compared to the savagely overpriced Quadro and Tesla). Reply
