AMD tried to be sneaky. Very sneaky.

Here is screenshots from AoTS. The RX 480 (left) vs the GTX 1080 (right).
Quality settings was greatly reduced on the RX 480.

So take their Crossfire and utilization market slides (CF = 1080 +10% on AoTS) with a huge dump of salt.

it is a $199 card stop thinking it to complete with 1070.

Whats matters here is simple. It is for everyone that below 390X performance.

If you want Nvidia card = u get to buy a cheap used 970/980 for $150 or less.
If you want AMD card = u get to buy a cheap used Hawaii for $150 or less. OR you just buy 480.

Why would anyone be salty on this? I dont get it.

If you really want more performance than all that? Well congratulation, we have that option, pay up & get Pascal. Its Pretty simple.

Yet people are wooing AMD and booing nvidia for those prices. I wonder why...
The hypocritical meter is calling quit from being pushed so high.

huh? We were talking about the price of the 1080. I did not realize that the price has come down from $700. Chev showed me the new prices. lol

It would likely be an upgrade, but not a big one. You would have much better temps and noise though, as this card has a much lower TDP. It would probably be smart to wait for the RX 490 series.

I felt this was very noticeable, as in, how the hell could you not see it? It looks like low/medium vs. VH/ultra.

It's the marketing tactic supermarkets use, throw something that's not selling to well cheap and put it on a corner and people think "I need to get that cause im saving" the truth be you not saving anything cause you never wanted/needed it in the first place. tongue.gif
kind of off topic.. I worked at one throughout highschool and at a different one during college, had positions as a department head at both and it is common practice to put items on "sale" for more than the regular price especially for smaller items. Yogurts on sale 10 for $10 when usually $.99 ea and you can't keep them on the shelves. Lol people really do tend to go crazy when they think they're getting a deal.

the 1080 cant render snow correctly.
must be the lack of real true async compute

Ashes of the singularity uses some form of procedual generation for its texture generation ( aswell as unit composition/behavior to prevent driver cheats) which means that every game session and bench run will have various differences in some details.

You can see this quite well in the second image. Looking at the chasm like drop off in front of the mountain (top portion) you can see that on the 480 side it's actually half filled with snow, while the 1080 run is pretty much... "dry" down there. Same can be observed with various mountain ledges where any remotely flat surface is covered in thick white snow on the 480 and hardly any on the 1080. Lastly the plateau on top of the same mountain is basically all snow on the 480 with almost no rock texture retained while on the 1080 the would-be snow layer is thin enough to show some of the rock's detail beneath.

Obviously, thick layers of snow will reduce apparent detail but that does not mean the scene becomes any easier to render. It's just that one seed looks more complex than the other.

tl;dr: Procedual terrain texture generation gave the 480 a much more snowy "seed". Differences in perceived detail are due to snow being inherently "boring" and probably purely aesthetic.

Edit: Old-ish but perhaps relevant post on the subject by Brad Wardell.
