Bahahaha probably those same people...
Based on it's power usage, this is definitely a 1000w minimum card.
Good luck finding a 15yo PCIE board ;p (2004)
I don't think the wattage was ever changed either. Pretty sure it's always been 75w - no?
2004 is actually when it was created. You could get pentium 4s with pcie.
Where's sew333/23dsaa when ya need him ??
taking it out of context there, my point was using a very old cheap low end board
Lets remember that the RX Vega 64 has a TDP of 350W, the AMD 6990 has a TDP of 375W.
The 6990 runs on a Corsair 620W PSU which means it can also run the RX Vega 64
So a 800W PSU could handle a nicely overclocked CPU and a overclocked GPU as well.
Nvidia 710 needs a 300w psu as well....
Is this forum for techs and enthusiast or just noobs these days? Or do people just like to go on about bs? Yes high end cards like the juice and run hot and this will never change.
Fuck knows, been following this thread lately? .
As I said on the last page the "required" PSU is just there in case people have shitty PSU's and or other powerful components. It's basically the manufacturers covering there asses in case some fuck wit blows up their PC with an inadequate PSU.
Anyway back onto Vega, any Aus pricing yet?
RAAAA need more powaaa.
my 1080ti is 280watts not an issue on a 750watter. Runs hotter then my 1070/80 ever did even with a better cooler it hits 74c.
Whatever price you think it to be... add $200 on top
I had a 5850 (300w on load apparently) + a 5970 (which is 2 x 5850) overclocked to 5870 clocks with my i7-930 @ 4ghz running on my Antec CP-850 and it never missed a beat.
Ah so 1080Ti price, got it .
I was actually just having a laugh and gloating about my 1KW PSU but you know...
Its legit now
And here's where miners just screw it up for everyone else because they will pay 1080ti price or morr for something that in their opinion performs way above a 1080ti, and AMD will be happy to sell out regardless of who buys
And all this talk of PSU wattage ratings is silly. I have laptop PSUs, single voltage, where their max rating is relevant since it can all be used, and use more and they will shut off. Desktop power supply ratings are fiction by comparison.
Only idiot miners, the companies that buy in bulk will seriously consider if it's worth the money, power costs etc before buying. The ones that snap the cards up on release are the morons who see "hur dur 100MH/s, dur buuy dur dur" and go out and buy all they can then realise oh well shit this thing pulls 350w per card so I'm only making $2 a day but spent $5000.
MHS / watt / $ is more important than raw MHS.
It looks like the 570s/1070s may remain the miners of choice purely because they're in the sweet spot of MHS/watts/$.
I'm so keen to try Vega on chilled water
It'll probably scale like crazy once heat is taken out of the equation, much like good ol Fermi.
It's a shame universal blocks won't fit though, or at least I doubt they would as I assume the chip is massive compared to a 'normal' GPU with off chip memory.
Also depends if they are paying for Power. Not all miner's do, one of the first things a lot have worked out ways around.
Are there AUD prices?
