RX 480 ref has a slight performance lead, but the nitro 470 has better cooling and is quieter.

Thanks.
Yeah, RX 470 8GB nitro+ does have 2000MHz GDDR5... I dont know if it is worth giving 50€ more over Red Devil RX 470 4GB.

The 480 is better but it comes down to how much it's worth to you at the price difference. Even the 4gb isn't that far behind. Idk that I would bother with the 8gb unless you want to cfx

Beat to it, mobile is off sometimes

8gb version uses faster RAM chip, which resulted in a noticeable performance gap from the 4gb ones.

Does memory speed actually affect the overall performance of the card? Back then, memory speed didn't really account for much in terms of fps unless it was insanely low, and it was core clock that made all of the difference.

I'm not sure if it's still that way still, or memory speed actually does count beyond benchmarks now.

Depends on weather or not people even look on the used market. I can easily sell at MSRP locally and people would not care, there is zero stock within 100 miles of here and most like going to a B&M store. Not to mention I can "value add" specific tuning for whoever buys it, more noise/performance (I know many who dont care about noise levels) or less noise with a slight performance reduction.

If I can get it to the 1350 range (after BIOS modding is a thing), I know at least 3 people who would buy it at the price I paid for it.

I lose money in the sense that I have tuned/tweaked the card, but I break even on what I spent.

HP-UX. I came, I saw, I was sad it would not run on my X86 box.

Well RX 480 stock is same price as RX 470 Nitro+ 8GB.
4Gb seems enough for 1080P for now, but for 3-4 years?

In 3-4 years the vram probably wouldn't be the limiting factor.
