I don't understand the outrage. Just went to mindfactory.de, one of the biggest online sellers of hardware where I live. Every 560 with less than 1024 stream processors is in some way labeled to differentiate them from the regular ones.

nVidia makes a 1060
makes another 1060, but 3GB, loses some shaders
you need to check whether it is a 6GB or 3GB card, something most normies will not do
scummy nVidia

AMD makes a 560
makes another 560, loses some shaders
you need to check shader count, something normies are guaranteed not to do
scummy AMD, even worse than nVidia

Cannot we have just ONE non-asshole tech company? Is this too much to ask for?

Are you fucking retarded? Nvidia and tech websites make it clear the GTX 1060 3GB has less shaders on day 1, no one is confused

AMD silently changing the RX 560 specs months later is deceitful and reaks of desperation to clear out those RX 460 that they could not sell

kinda dick move desu, they should calling it 550/540 not 560.

A normie would assume that other than the VRAM, these two cards are identical. We have had 4GB/2GB cards before, which were identical otherwise. I believe we also had 2GB/1GB cards as well.

So no, I am not retarded.

Close down Logical Increments if you think Nvidia is doing anything as same as AMD conning RX 560 buyers into buying inferior 896 shaders card at the same price as 1024 shaders card

Oliver Young

you need to check whether it is a 6GB or 3GB card, something most normies will not do

That's the first thing normies check, you dildo. It's the next most comprehensive number right after the model.
Back when memory was cheap, some low/mid tier cards had absurd amounts of VRAM that they couldn't reasonably use, for no reason other than impressing normies with a bigger number.

It turns out that retailers and third party sellers weren't forced to mark them as different cards, so a lot of them didn't. They're already fixing it. Meanwhile Nvidia is selling 2 versions of the 1060.

At ultra, my point was that ultra looks the same as high, as long as you put textures at ultra. High/very high with ultra textures is 60+ fps on everything

RTG is an almost seperate entity to AMD. RTG used to be ATI. ATI was better before AMD took over. AMD simply have not given RTG the budget. AMD were too poor to do so and needed to concentrate on CPU's. which is why Ryzen is a success. RTG is a mess and why Raja left for Intel.

Update:AMD replied to our questions with the following statement:

“It’s correct that 14 Compute Unit (896 stream processors) and 16 Compute Unit (1024 stream processor) versions of the Radeon RX 560 are available. We introduced the 14CU version this summer to provide AIBs and the market with more RX 500 series options. It’s come to our attention that on certain AIB and etail websites there’s no clear delineation between the two variants. We’re taking immediate steps to remedy this: we’re working with all AIB and channel partners to make sure the product descriptions and names clarify the CU count, so that gamers and consumers know exactly what they’re buying. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused.”
Literally getting solved soon and made by greedy AIB's
Meanwhile Nvidia never tried to fix their mess on the low end, despite going as far as having three generations of GPUs with multiple configurations sold as the same card
Fuck you for your baiting OP

Nolan White

If anyone wants to tldr on the topic here it goes.

AMD released 460
people mod 460 to have more CUs and shaders with another bios
AMD releases 560 and releases statement
The statement tells the media flat out that the new card is factory flashed 460 and nothing else
AMD partners get the card and pump out two models
One models is 460 unflashed but sold like 560
Other model is 460 flashed and also sold like 560
People notice this on retailer sites
AMD changes the wording on their listing to "560 V1 and V2 variants"
Media posts fake news about how AMD is scamming customers
people attack AMD

list 3,5GB instead of 4GB on gtx 970 and call it a happy little accident
buhu i have 4GB but i can't access the other .5 at high speed so nvidia is evil for not lying about 4gb being in it.
i never understood this angle it would have been reasonable to shit on nvidia for fucking up the speed, but this whole "it's only 3.5 and not 4" is retarded because it literally is 4

Carter Miller

They'll be able to get a bigger budget than he's ever seen before, I'm sure. I'm also sure they're going to be able to ride out this cluster fuck and bounce back. AMD survived five years of Bulldozer, so I think Intel can survive this.

Blake Kelly

I love how AMD is always 3-4 steps behind.

In GPUs the 460 is a 660, 660 was released in 2012, 460 was released in 2016, Ryzen was released in 2017 and has gaming performance of Haswell which came out in 2013

Why is there such a hug gap between the 460/560 and 470/570 anyway? The 1050Ti is shit but it's popular since AMD has nothing to compete with it. There should have been a 460X with 1050Ti performance, the fact that AMD rolled over and let Nvidia largely steal the budget market is sheer incompetance. 1050 is slightly better value than 560 and 1050Ti is uncontested due to high 570 prices. Even the 550 gets zero attention, everyone only talls about the 1030.

Daniel Myers
Daniel Myers

the AMD alternative is widely accepted to be the 470, but obviously power consumption and use case wise they differ pretty heavily

Dylan Turner
Dylan Turner

of course, the 470 was only the alternative when it was $15 more expensive than the 1050 ti and not almost $80 more expensive, i guess my info was outdated

it's 3.5 because using the last 0.5gb in high bandwidth scenarios causes huge performance issues if memory is the bottleneck, which in gaymen is usually always the case
it's like saying iphones are superior because they have 1.4ghz processors but does that really matter when they throttle down to 1.15ghz almost immediately

Sebastian Edwards
Sebastian Edwards

it is still 4 gb
it's like saying iphones are superior because they have 1.4ghz processors but does that really matter when they throttle down to 1.15ghz almost immediately
this is not about "better" or somesuch thing this is about facts and fact is it is 4gb and the phone processor runs at 1.4ghz
of course i am opposed to omitting the fact that it throttles down to 1.15 but to say it doesn't run at 1.4 is plain wrong

Aren't they basically the same company these days? Didn't Intel start throwing money at them in order to prevent monopoly suits?
Is it not conceivable that both companies are in some type of unholy corporate marriage rather than being as separate as they would have you believe?

Austin Torres

Nothing to see here boys. It was the AIBs fault for the confusion.
Yes but there is no reason whatsoever to have two cards with different specs but the same name in the first place. AMD should have given it a new name, RX 555 or something. Even if every manufacturer lists the number of CUs, it's still intentionally confusing and misleading to have two RX 560 variants with absolutely no name delineation.

I love AMD but this is retarded.

Kayden Reyes

The 4GB of memory was something it actualy had thought and not an outright lie. Now the memory access speeds weren't what was advertised, something like 190 out of the 220GB/s because of the segregation along with less rops and tmu and one other component on the chip as well, but gaymers don't know what those are so it's normally forgotten.

Henry White
Henry White

but to say it doesn't run at 1.4 is plain wrong
Not him but nobody cares about some cherrypicked laboratory benchmarks. It's the end user's experience that counts. If it throttles down immediately then the end user doesn't get to experience the advertised speed. Same with GPUs, if you sell a gaming GPU with 4 GB VRAM and the end user cannot game with that amount it's not right to just wave your hands in the air and say "well it's there but it's just not good for gaming". That's like buying a shitty fishing pole that breaks right away and the company goes "well we never actually said you can use it for fishing". The intended purpose for the product is clear to everybody and that's where it should work as advertised.
