Strunkenbold, Maintainer of the HWBOT Hardware Database, Re-Orgs Radeon Cards

HWBOT member Strunckenbold has been diligently and tirelessly working away behind the scenes to maintain and organize the HWBOT Hardware Database, a vast wasteland of gargantuan proportions. Yesterday Strunkenbold gave us an update regarding how we will be organizing graphics cards. Here’s what he had to say:

"Last time I added Radeon R2 to R9 categories and now these are already history. We have decided to sort them by architecture. This was necessary because we want to merge re-branded cards and those exists unfortunately over all Radeon families. So new categories are now:"

  • -TeraScale2
  • -TeraScale3
  • -GCN 1st Generation
  • -GCN 2nd Generation
  • -GCN 3rd Generation
  • -GCN 4th Generation
  • "This also allows us to do a major cleanup and finally have a chance to add all obscure AMD cards available."

    Also new:

    • -Geforce GTX 1060 3Gb version (1152 Shaders)
    • -Geforce GTX 1060/70/80 Notebook variants
    • -added Intel Kaby Lake i7, i5 models by preliminary information
    • -some Tesla and FirePro cards
    • Awesome work again from Strunkenbold. The community salutes you sir.

Great work! Shame on any company using excessive rebranding.

Strunkenbold says:

Thx, we slowly get the db in shape. Im actually still quite happy that Intel and AMD cpu's are complete, at least regarding CPU-World. Now its really time to fix those AMD GPUs. Though I fear that a lot more work needs to be done. And I dont want to blame AMD for their strategy. Actually Nvidia does this too. But they were smarter giving every GPU an unique device ID. Anyway, if GPU-Z would detect GPUs more correctly, all this wouldnt be needed.
