GPU Wars: Which Is Better, ‘NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’ Or ‘AMD Radeon RX 490’?
The most awaited match between the two leading GPU manufacturers will happen during the first quarter of 2017. NVIDIA, the leading GPU manufacturer, is set to unveil its next graphics card - "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti" - by January. Meanwhile, preparations are ongoing for the first graphics card under AMD's next generation GPU architecture called Vega - "Radeon RX 490".
Which of the two graphics card will be welcomed with open arms by consumers? But the most important question is - which of the two graphics card is more powerful, NVIDIA "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti" or AMD "Radeon RX 490"
NVIDIA "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti"
Dubbed as the graphics card with 'the power of Titan X for the price of GeForce GTX 1080', truly, based from the specifications of NVIDIA "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti" - it already says it all. As posted on WCCFTech.com, "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti" share the same specs with "Titan X" on Memory (12GB GDDR5X), Memory Speed (10GB/s), Memory Interface (384-bit), Memory Bandwidth (480GB/s), and Thermal Design Power (250W).
Of course, there are still a few things that would make these two NVIDIA Pascal cards differ. Such features are CUDA Cores, Base Clock, Boost Clock and Computing Power. But obviously, "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti" gives better rating than "GeForce GTX 1080".
AMD "Radeon RX 490"
On the other hand, AMD has pretty much held their deck of cards on "Radeon RX 490". But of course, there are still leaked information coming from sources of VideoCardz.com. Among these specs are the graphic card's Memory Size (8GB HBM2 - Vega 10 is reportedly going to have 16GB HBM2), Memory Bus Width (4096-bit), Memory Bandwidth (716.8GB/s), and Computing Power FP32 (9,830 GFLOPS).
"Radeon RX 490" is reportedly going to have a Base Clock of 1,200MHz with Boost of 1,550MHz (effective Boost Clock set at 1,400MHz). All these power can be run using TDP of 225W.
