[VideoCardz] Rumour: AMD Radeon RX 480 specifications leaked - Page 10

post #91 of 383
Great enough for me to leave my HD6850 behind without having to spend half a grand to do it.

P10 on the level of 390X/980+ for cheap price may be good for market, but horrible for OC.net users who need more than 290X/390X level

thats how it is ...

true.

For the top 5% those Polaris cards are probably boring.

I dont think AMD wanted to only go for midrange either. They were forced to, but not sure how

They are actually not missing out on many customers.

Not many people, compared to the full volume of buyers, actually do buy 500$+ GPUs.

I am more inclined to think that if this is true then that is indeed a 2048@1350 and then we could expect a 2305@1400 that beats 1070

But then ofc after those other leaks that show both the C4 and C7 at 1266 to be just their top clocks and AMD to release the chip with lower clocks.
However this will be too little jump to clocks of just around 20% from 28nm to 14nm LPP (not even LPE) compared to Nvidia's huge jump of 50%+ considering they jumped from 28nm to 16nm FinFET

20% would be borderline low.

You can probably add 10-20% max for the full Polaris 10 aka R9 480X

Since when was 970 or 1070 a $500 GPU?
Have you seen the most used GPU on Steam? GTX 970. 10-20 million GPUs sold, if not more.

The fact that so many people bought the 970 last generation instead of the much weaker 960 severely limits the amount of people this card is aimed at.

People have been able to buy 290+ performance for years now. If they wanted to, they could have so many times now.

Uh you don't say? You could have GTX 980 Ti performance with 780 Ti SLI even before the 980 Ti launched.

Does it cost the same? No.

Let's not forget nVidia probably already finalized GTX 1060 and waiting for AMD's Polaris 10 to decide what clock speed the GTX 1060 will run at.

1280 CUDA for $200 anyone?

There was also GTX 580 performance for many years, but people still buy GTX 950, R7 370 cards.

Cards get cheaper and overall better.

Don't forget that there a lot of people on GTX 770, 780, 7970, 280(X) or even earlier that might be going for Polaris10.

I wouldn't count Polaris10 out quite yet. The pricepoint is going to make it or break it. For most OCN users probably uninteressting, but if I look at my steam friendlist there are lots of people with 7950, 6970, 570 etc.

Like the Vega in October?

I'm just speculating.

I believe that the RX480 will hard launch at E3. AMD likes doing this, it's a great way of getting their name out, with EA's help.

On the other hand. I don't think AMD had the resources to release various chips at the same time, Polaris was probably a big bullet to bite on alone.

For the last several years they haven't changed their architecture or released new lines of products whatsoever.

Sure, there are a few "upgraded" APU's and Athlons, and FIJI.... but that's it. With Polaris, AMD secured 4 massive deals that have given them a cash infusion.

AMD could not have foreseen that. This means quite a bit, not all of it good for PC gamers:
  1. Not including discrete cards, 14nm GPU chips are being put into the new AND "refreshed" versions of the PS4/Xbone, the new Macbook Pro's, the new iMac's, various OEM builders, chinese super-computers.
  2. They couldn't have released the product earlier because of this ramp up in production due to point #1
  3. Zen is coming, but it's also 14nm, and it uses the same avenues of production as Polaris
  4. the first 14nm chips HAD to have good yields, so they went with a smaller die. Imagine securing these deals with all these big companies and finding out 50% of your chips were worthless? They would be functionally broke

Because of this, you can see why AMD has done what it's done. Polaris was more important from a securing funding standpoint. They'll use this profit to advance and enhance Zen and Vega. Both of which will most likely launch at the end of this year. This is huge, AMD actually has its first chance to be profitable in the long-term in a while.

Imagine an APU with 4 Zen cores functionally equivalent to an i7 4900m, with graphics on-par with a desktop 370x? That's fantastic.
