The $200 could be mislieading too.
It is the MSRP only. Count taxes and other fees onto it and think of the price as an 4GB card. The big 8GB modell will ad mor. We talk about a range from $229 to $ $249 for the 4GB version and $269 to $299 for the 8GB one. of course this is depending on the location and the country you live in. Canadians, Australians and guys from India will pay way more than that.

@Vowels
I did cite PCP with roughly 180W. The Guru3D-one seems realistic to me. With all the OC results floating around there is no clear line right now. As soon as the AIB models for the 1070 launches, we can exclude influences from the FE-cooler.


Since when should they add those. I did not see them with the 1070 or 1080. wth.lol

I understood him as the RX 480 being the closest competitor to the 1070 that AMD has, rather than AMD having something that challenges it perf wise.

Holyyyyyy.... yes. This is what I like to see. I found my new upgrade!

That's not how he worded it at all. Plus AMD was being really coy at the presentation. I at first thought it was just a really bad presentation, but thinking back on it, something doesn't quite add up. We already have a leaked benchmark slide from the press event that pegs the 480 it at 5.5 TFlops, whereas they only gave us 5+ TFlops.

He also stated Vega was slated for later this year, and then he quantified that specifically as 2016.

Hell, even if the 1060 beats it, by how much? Sadly I'm on a budget so does gaining an extra 5-10% in performance equate in $50-100 more in cost?

1060 is going to be a 360mm part-just like 1070/1080...Doubt they can price it that low.

What the hell were they thinking?

The c7 in 3dmark which is the rx 480 is faster than 980

polaris mught have better ipc as compared to fury and 390x

In all seriousness, this rumor mill is a mess. There have to be several versions. Look at the AMD specs of the RX480. AMD points out >5 TFLOPS. It's either about the shaders or the clocks. The RX480 might not be all. On the otehr side, Polaris does not necessarily need more IPC than i.e. Tonga. The GCN 4.0 just has to utilize the shaders better and do some improvements here and there.

Getting rid of compute units like Nvidia did could also be a solution. There are so many possibilites, so giving a precise forecast is almost impossible at this point.

If the potential buyer only aims for 1080p at mid-grade settings, it may work out. I look forward scared to newer games. If they need more performance or bring new demanding featues, a RX480 will maybe not be enough. For owners of a 970+ or 390+ this is not really an upgrade. I am sceptical here because we had so many rebrands from AMd over the last years. Selling a 290 / 390 class card for the 3rd time is not really appealing.

I may see this too much from the enthusiastic side. Please have mercy on my opinion wink.gif

There are cards in the pipepline at AMD for sure. Yet these are not ready and will be released at a later point in time. Could be the smaller Vega chip. Sadly the date for release could be any time within the next 9 months. Not everybody is willing to wait that long if the 1070 is available soon.

Around GM204 efficiency, 150W is the 1070 TDP too with way better results, seems Pascal beats Polaris easily regarding power efficiency and performance.
200$ for the 4GB version is a good news but I guess they have no choice to do anything else.
RX480 will compete with GTX 1060, certainly not what people expected from start, with more optimistic expectations.
Clocks looks really low for 150W 14nm though.

Clocks aren't final yet by the looks of things, all that chart is saying is that clocks will be higher than 1085mhz (based on math I guess)

It's 2x performance per watt as we saw from a slide, so 480 will equal 390. It won't match 980 as some here hope.

We were just through this. AMD uses max power while Nvidia uses average. The 1070 as an example uses a max of 224W power during gaming. The 480 has a 6-pin connector which is 75W and the PCI-e which is 75W for a total of 150W, and the 1070 has a 8-pin connector which is 150W for a total of 225W.
