Do we have any idea what the 8gb model will cost? I know the 4gb is supposed to be $199.

I just hope they leave us with enough OC headroom... at least to reach the 980 performance.

If it's at 390x performance it's at 980 performance.

Still an OC'd 970 performance is almost the same as a 980. What I want to see is the RX480 beating the GTX970 in OC and framerates. If it does that, AMD gets my money. So far numbers around the card mean nothing till we see benchmarks and custom manufecturer cooling solutions.

That 6 pin connector is what I don't like. It's good for lower end PC's but I'm not sure what performance you can get out of 150W at max. Maybe Gigabyte's G1 will do the same as with other cards, make a custom PCB and add another power connector or put in a 8pin instead of the 6 pin.

A PCIE 16x lane can provide up to 75W, one 6 pin should be fine.

We're used to seeing things like that on lower end PC's/GPU's as you say, but times change and things become more efficient.

I know, like I said, it's 150W total smile.gif

It is possible, but don't you guys think this is really a big jump? By speculations everyone says we're going to get somewhere in between GTX970 and GTX980 for 200$ and only 150W - even less than that, since 150W is the maximum that can be drawn from the power lanes.

I know everyone is being innovative, but this seems like a huge jump from AMD. They seem to somehow increased performance and lowered the power all in one, not to mention the price. And everything is double. Double less power consumption, double less price, double more performance. To me, seems too good to be true. Nothing like this happened in last 5 years.

Seems like the RX480 will be a card for everyone - one card for 1080p 60FPS, two cards for 1080p 120/144Hz or 1440p, three cards for 4K... ofcourse, if crossfire worked without issues. But pricewise and performance wise, seems like you won't be needing a lot of money or a great PSU for crossfire anymore. So far you needed at least 4x6pin on your PSU to even think of xfire.

I'm too sceptical. Blame me for this but nobody made something like this so far. It's like Zen is going to bring 16 cores with HT at 4GHz with 70W TDP and increase the single core rating by 100%, if we take this math to the CPU part of AMD. And all that would be around the FX8350 price, lets say 150EUR.

All this seems too good to be true, but if it becomes reality... there's going to be major price drops on the market in all segments.

For some reason I had it in my head that a 6 pin could supply 150W on it's own, my mistake.

Anyway if a high end GPU like the 1080 can use a single 8 pin I have no doubts in my mind of a lower powered GPU only needing a 6 pin.

PCI-E cant deliver more then 75w? I thought that specs of 3.0 pci-e slot itself are saying that it can deliver 150w alone. 6 pin connector is probably for more stable power and to not stress the mobo.

In my experience it can go a little over 75W but not by much, maybe 80-90W tops.

PCIe - 75W
6 pin - 75W
8 - pin 150W

These are the standards everybody uses.
If the 480 has a 150W TDP it needs a little headroom so the card should draw less power than that even whit a small OC.
