Raptr.. Sounds like a new version of x-fire? something... basically a game chat integration thing but I'm guessing Raptr will do settings too.


After a year of blood sweat and tears you have Nvidia Experience (without the chat and extras I don't want)

SKY,

'grats for being out there on the first line!

All in all I watched the cast, and there was a few things that confused me...little details tho.
Mentions about 290X, 290 and SERIES....then they brought up bench numbers for "firestrike" and "compute"....were they talking 100% of the time about a single GPU R9-290X, or was there any hints about some of those numbers pumped by a dual-GPU unit????

My comment about the slide that discussed "partners" only EIDOS Mtl was one of the sutdio/partner I knew out of the names mentioned. sorry if I'm a noob, but they didn't brought up great names...

KK...EA/DICE was out there for a free BF4 bundle deal for "early orders of the flagship".....

Had to leave for work, was the 290X price announced? Any word on relative performance?

Mantle is the result of a lot of very, very sneaky business planning and the EXACT reason why the PS4 and Xbox1 wins were worth more than just APU sales!

Didn't watch the preview. So, what was this all about? Integrated sound? Glad I didn't waste my time.

Sound, pretty impressive processing power claims for the next gen, 4K adoption, and (unfortunately I had to go out and didn't catch the whole thing) mantle which appears to be designed to make light work of porting games properly between consoles and PCs.
