that's lightning fast 2800mhz gddr4!!!
179Gb/s mem bandwidth for the R600, would that be a overkill?
Means more money too!
Hm... the 8900GTX is going to be 512bit too right?
everything is for $ wad...
too early to say?
I think we are moving through technologies too quickly. We need to let them saturate and improve before just pushing them out for something a little newer.
is there such thing as "too quickly"?
i always feel that hdd is the slowest in improvement
I agree. I really hate it when I find that I spent a ton of money on something that just became "obsolete" because of a newer model. I feel everyone should be given enough time to enjoy what they had just bought.
I think it's somewhat similar to how car designs changes so quickly.
that's how they "force" u to upgrade mah..
or else everybody would stick to their own hardware n things wouldnt be selling..
not sure abt cars though..
Japanese car manufacturers usually redesigns their models every four years and makes "face lifts" or refreshes every two years.
Sorry for going out-of-topic.
But do we really need DDR4 right now?
i know nth abt cars...
hardcore games/overclockers would "need" gddr4 to get the most out of the hardware
an average users would "want" to have one but they wouldnt "need" it
Well, it's not about whether we need GDDR4 or not. It's a specialized product, so it's really a matter of whether manufacturers need it.
As they keep ramping up the memory bandwidth, yeah, I would say they would probably need GDDR4. Especially if it's easier and/or cheaper to ramp up the memory clock speed rather than the memory bus width.
