AIBs are the next hype train now
but how much will they cost, how much will be down to lottery and how much frikking watts will this little monster draw at 1500+ Mhz
also even a 1500-1550+ OC (if its possible) will just match (not exceed) the OCs of 970/980 .. but itll be an improvement over the reference for sure
If you look at the PCGH OC benches, a 1350Mhz (stable!) 480 already matches a 980 Classified @ 1418Mhz.
The 970 was a $330 card a few days ago with 3.5 GB of RAM
So Vega will be like 290x ? 300w ?
CPU : AMD Ryzen 1600X | Memory : [Ripjaws V] F4-3200C16D-16GVKB | Motherboard : Asus Prime X370 Pro | Graphic : XFX AMD Radeon R9 290 Double Dissipation | Monitor : AOC 931Sw | HDD : 1x120 GB SSD Samsung Evo , 1x2TB Seagate
I saw an aussie website PC case gear selling the 4GB for $319, and 8GB $379, and that's release day prices lol.
AIB's have said 1480-1600mhz their cards are hitting. With superior scaling.......well.
