    Thumbs up AMD “Evergreen” DX11 card release date!



    http://techpulse360.com/2009/08/12/a...eve-your-eyes/

    The word is finally out. AMD will launch it’s much anticipated next generation graphics processors code name “Evergreen” on September 10th.

    For AMD, these 40-nm, Microsoft DX11-compliant GPUs will fundamentally change the graphics industry – again! – and give it a clear advantage over Nvidia; ahead of Windows 7’s launch in late October.

    Sadly, AMD’s Santa Clara, Calif., rival hasn’t shown much of its DX-11 chips yet. However, Nvidia might choose to show off its wares at the GPU Technology conference it is hosting at the end of September in San Jose.

    The GPU market is finally kicking some tires, just in time for the holiday season!

    Damn...it's sooner than I anticipated.
    I guess ADM wants Nvidia to do the catching up instead of ahead of the race.

    So the DX11 card coming out before Windows 7...hummm..and the question is how many DX11 games available at the moment or when they will be coming out?

    Anyway, my rule of thumb never jump onto the new tech at first wave of the debut. Because there're always better versions (drive/card) follow up right after 4-6 months.

    yeah and not forgetting most of all we need time for the watercooling folks to work on those waterblocks too !!

    I have also heard that there are several cards that are going to be released at the Evergreen launch. Including an X2 card wither at launch or within a few weeks after. Looks like my entire build is going to going up for sale; I'm switching over to AMD again, and there will definitely be a worklog for the new build.

    ATI Catalyst 9.8:

    The next ATI graphics cards drivers will also get released on August 17th. It includes some enhancements specific to performance platforms which are meant to improve system performance in CPU bound situations. It is said that at 1680x1050 and higher, crossfire setups benefit considerably when used as part of the Dragon Platform. This means the AMD platform is more effective as a whole. Titles such as Far Cry 2, H.A.W.X., Battleforge, Stalker Clear Sky, Crysis, Company of Heroes, and World in Conflict show the largest gains, with Far Cry 2 getting up to approximately 50% more performance. Intel based computers featuring an ATI graphics solution will also see some increases, although they will be much less important.

    To be honest, the build has a startup time that is atrocious (in my opinion), and is not as responsive as the AM3 systems that I have built in reviewing. I don't get how, but the AM3 systems I built for reviews and for personal use started up faster, programs started up faster, and to me seemed generally more responsive than my current Core i7 build. True, it doesn't perform as well in synthetics, or most benchmarks for that matter, but benchmarks don't give a true assessment of day to day performance.

    The current "Dragon +" Platform more than meets my needs, but I plan on future proofing it a little better with the new cards. I don't honestly do all that much rendering, and I don't encode movies, so the performance gains that I am supposed to see from a Core i7 system are lost on me. I don't really care how fast my system can compute the numbers of Pi, or what my P-score is in Vantage. I want real world performance I can count on.

    The only reason that I switched to Intel in the first place was for Phys-X in an SLI setup, as there are not realy any decent SLI capable AMD motherboards. But Windows 7 will be remedying that problem by allowing more than one graphics driver to be installed, so I will be running two of the new 5xxxX2 cards in quadfire, and a single GTX260 for Phys-X.

    Right now, I believe that I already have the Motherboard and processor sold, so I am probably going to be putting up my 4850X2 and my Diablos up for grabs on ocbay or trying to find a buyer locally.

    i kinda agree with you on the startup times with AMD systems
    i also have an AMD system setup in my home and yes to some extend it also response faster and seems quicker on boot times...

    Well i'm looking forward to see a worklog on your next coming rig

    thanks for sharing that part on windows 7 allowing more than 1 graphic driver to be installed that will be really amazing!

    It wouldn't surprise me if there was a comprehensive launch. If anyone's been watching, highend OC'ed 4890's of all brands are in non existent supply. Enthusiasts have been clamoring for Toxic/ Atomic etc, but they sell out immediately when a few come into supply. Long way of saying I think either these company's are working on something else or there is a yield problem with high bin chips.

    shattered.likeness, welcome back Bro! Your work on the AMD components has been both informative and enjoyable.

    And the Cypress shader count is...

    September 3, 2009

    WHEN WE HEARD the specs of Evergreen, the scene was one of jaws hanging down and people almost falling backwards into the snowy ground. The only question at that point was, could TSMC make them on the 40nm process?

    The real question that everyone is speculating about is the shader count. It is 1600 for Cypress, 800 for Juniper, going down from there. If clocks stay at their targets, more or less where the current R770 is, that should put the DX11 Cypress right on top of the GTX295 for a rumored $100 or so lower price, plus all the added features.

    The GTX285 will almost assuredly get creamed by the cheaper low end Cypress/5850, and the pain waterfalls down the stack from there. The 180mm^2 or so Juniper will basically equal the 4870's performance for far lower cost to AMD, putting pressure on the low end GT200b parts and really hurting whatever Nvidia renames the G92 to this week.

    Memory is also interesting, with Evergreen parts using up to 1.25/2.5/5GHz GDDR5. Contrary to many rumors, the upcoming GDDR5+ won't debut until the next generation cards. That means the 1/2/4ish GHz RAM chips used on the 4870/4890 are no longer top bin, nor do they command top bin pricing. AMD will be able to launch 'cheap' Evergreens with GDDR5, halving pin count over GDDR3, lessening PCB layer count and the attendant cost and defect rate. Compare and contrast this to the Nvidia roadmap.

    If AMD follows it's usual form, we will see the main two cards, 5870 and 5850, coming out together, or one shortly after the other. AMD will comfortably have the lead until the GT300 appears, if it can be made.

    Should Nvidia be able to top Cypress, Hemlock is in the wings to stuff Nvidia back into a hole. Nvidia is unlikely to be able to yield enough parts to make anything more than press samples for a dual GT300 board.

    So in the end, depending on TSMC bins and the alignment of Saturn and Pluto in late September, we should see the best Nvidia has relegated to the mid-tier, $125 and under parts bin. Considering it sells GTX285 kits for that much, it's going to be very hard for Nvidia to make money in Q4 and Q1/2010. Like we have been saying, Q3 is ugly, but Q4 looks like it'll be far worse if you are wearing green in Santa Clara.

    Nice!

    Why can't they do this in the CPU segment of the market?

    First Exclusive Details



    http://alienbabeltech.com/main/?p=11135

    According to our own sources, the new HD 5870 offers over 1600 Stream processors. Amazingly AMD doubled the number of SIMD units from 10 to 20. Since each SIMD unit contains 16 5-D units and a Quad-TMU overall, that means we count 1600 stream processors and 80 TMUs. We are talking about a new videocard whose core speed is at 850 MHz and whose 256-bit GDDR5 runs at 1200 MHz – all for the suggested retail of $399! AMD is expecting HD 5870 to come close to the performance of a HD 4870-X2 or the GTX 295.

    There is a new feature that is called “eyefinity” which means that three LCDs can be simultaneously supported at 2560×1600, with options for future cards to support up to six LCDs!

    The HD 5870 die size is slightly over 330 MM2 and packed with over 2 billion transistors. This translates into one beast of a card with just over 150 GB/second bandwidth. It is very likely that the 8X + 8X PCIe CrossFire slots of the new p55 motherboards for Core i5 will become saturated with two of them.

    What is outstanding is that we are hearing that the HD 5870 will perform at just under 28 watts at idle and peak below 190 watts maximum!! That is quite a challenge for Nvidia to meet or beat in their own upcoming GT 300 series as the performance to watt ratio is outstanding.

    What is also new to watch for in the HD 58X0 series besides its DX11 capability is that there is a new AA/AF algorithm, where everything on the render back end has been doubled. As a benefit for gamers, that means much less of a performance hit when going from no AA to 4xAA or perhaps even from 4xAA to 8xAA.

    The new HD 5850 will launch on September 23 also. We hear it is priced below $299. HD 5850 will sport 1440 stream processors and it will have lower clockspeeds than its big brother. We are hearing somewhere around 700/1000 MHz and it can also display simultaneously on three LCDs at up to 2560×1600 resolution.

    Finally, you can expect the HD 5870-X2 to be released in the second half of October.

    You heard it here at AlienBabelTech first. And we also think that you may be pleasantly surprised when you actually get your hands on one.

    I shouldn't have to worry about upgrading the GPU for a long time if I get the 5870. It has the performance of GTX295 with DirectX 11.

    We'll be speaking with our AMD contacts/board partners to get some new 58xx sample(s). Fingers crossed!
