      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Looks similar to the Titan X specswise.  Cheaper, and likely faster though.

It's their code name for their next gen architecture. It's more akin to the names of Intel CPUs like Sandy Bridge, Kaby Lake, etc.

It's the name for the architecture. nVidia does the same. The 9xx series was Maxwell, the current 10xx series is Pascal.

Not just a code name anymore. I thought Fury was supposed to be their "Titan" (albeit without the performance), but now I guess it's whatever they want at the time. It's way less straightforward than just numbers. You might as well go back to the "XT, SE, XL, LE, GS" suffix confusion of yesteryear.

I'd rather they had just gone with RX 500 series. . . .

Well, about that....

 

https://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/Report-AMD-Launch-Radeon-RX-500-Series-GPUs-April

 

According to a report from VideoCardz.com we can expect AMD Radeon RX 500-series graphics cards next month, with an April 4th launch of the RX 580 and RX 570, and subsequent RX 560/550 launch on April 11. The bad news? According to the report "all cards, except RX 550, are most likely rebranded from Radeon RX 400 series".

 

:sick:

Man I hate re-brands, simply because even if performance of a new chip is the same as the previous incarnation it is ALWAYS nice to have a new feature set of video decoding, HDMI, or whatever so that every chip in a generation is at least capable of the same things.

Another rumor states that the new rebranded AMD cards will be called MX 580 and they will only support DX7.

We knew the rebrands were coming, but I wish they would have called it the RX 485, 475, etc. 

 

Vega is taking too long.
