They really should've called it #betterrad instead. This way it avoids all the commie associations, and also rad because RADeon so win win.

I think 270x will still be a little faster than the 460. Leaks have it like <15% over 7850.

Serious question here, how many of you are actually excited for this launch? How many of you think this is rather meh?

I paid $240 after rebate on 5/11/15 for my R9 290. RX 480 so far is showing performance around the same levels and costs as much as I paid for my R9 290. The only benefit I would have gotten for waiting a full year is 4GB more VRAM and reduced power draw.

I just wanna see if there is any correlation to those who are excited and are using older/less powerful GPUs and those not excited who are using up-to-date enthusiast grade GPUs.

Stock vs stock, this performance has not been in this price segment before. But yeah, I'm excited. As I've said before, I bought my 7850 a few months after launch and this will give me almost 300% upgrade at less or about equal to what I paid nearly 4 years ago.
I wasn't going to buy a rebrand, and this is the first new card at this price segment that I've found remotely impressive. It's not that it's that impressive, but, considering the stagnation of the mainstream segment, it's really a breath of fresh air. :thumb

Yep, this is basically my thoughts as well. It's very nice for anyone with an outdated low-end GPU or is planning on building a new system, but if you already have a video card that is around the same performance, there really isn't much reason to upgrade, at least to me.

My point about the R9 290 though was that people could have gotten this performance a year ago for the same price, so to me price wise it's not all that impressive.
You keep comparing it to the 290 when at reference, it's comparable to an unlocked, aib 290, or, a little better than a reference 290x. You could get around 290 performance a year before the 290 from an ocd 7970 for less than 300 as well. (Idr exact price).

RX 460 - Probably like a R7 270

RX 470 - Probably just above a R9 380X

(Plus better future-proofing for the higher RAM amount variants)

they also said "make good great again" which is cringy as ***

They should have replaced "good" with "games", would have been way better in my opinion.

Yeah that would further prove my point though that from a performance stand point this isn't very special, but when looking at the power consumption and the VRAM amount (3GB on the 7970 vs 8GB on the RX 480) then it is pretty damn nice. I still think that anyone with a GTX 970 or similar performing card should either wait for Vega or purchase a GTX 1080 though.

No, its pretty much always like that.

The next card may match or barely beat the card before when it's oc'd, but you can then oc the new card.
From a 7970 ghz (280x/380x) at stock clocks, compared to the 480 at stock clocks, there should be a over a 40% difference.

It realy depends what you need the card for. For me i sold my 970 due to it's 3.5GB VRAM. And getting a 480 if it's around a 390X/980 performance. Since this card will go to my other rig and will stay there for few years. But for my main rig will be picking up a vega or a ti.
