[VideoCardz] AMD Radeon RX 480 to cost 199 USD - Page 82

1080 hardly has over 4MH/s at 100W consumption to even pay for the electricity by mining Litecoin. That stuff ain't profitable for anyone who pays the electric bill while mining and especially when using GPUs that are a few years dead and replaced by ASICs.

I was showed the 1080 at 1044MH... was I misinformed?

EDIT: Facepalm, that was BTC. Kill me please

If we take to 280X... It uses around 241W. That would be around 86W if we translate to the 480.. So... I guess considering the approximate power consumption of the 480, we're closer to a 1.5x the performance of the 280X, since that would be the equivalent of 129W. What is approximately 1.5x the performance of the 280X? A 390X/GTX 980...

I'd wager the latter situation (2.5x p/w of the 280X) given all the performance leaks of P10 we've seen thus far.

60% as fast
1/3 the price.

Please define "inferior" because to me, the RX 480 sounds like a downright bargain for what you get.

I didn't follow AMD much the past couple of years, but I wanted to ask - what is the deal with the 290 series? From what I've seen mentioned around various places, it seems they have improved a lot performance wise since launch due to driver updates? Is that correct? Have AMD gotten more performance out of them compared to when they first launched?

Yes.

At launch the 290x was up against the 780. The 780 is just a footnote now, the 290x (mine with a 390x BIOS and improved timings, but stock is up there too) competes today in DX11 with the 980 (depending on the game), and nips at the 980Ti in DX12. All attributed to DX11 driver and DX12 API improvements.

I suspect the new 480 is right around what I get out of this Hawaii card today, but with a vastly lower power draw (and no need for an AIO).

Wow, that's pretty darn good. Is the 290x very similar to the 390 that you're able to use a 390x BIOS? I've still got two 4GB GTX 680s in SLI. How do the 290Xs perform in Crossfire? Would they be much better than my 680s? Back then, the main reason I went with the GTX 680s because I didn't trust Crossfire. Has that gotten a lot better with 2 cards on AMD's side?

Also, I think I've seen mentioned that the 680 performance hasn't gotten any better at all through drivers? I think I even read quite a while ago that is was slightly handicapped so that it didn't compete with the GTX 770 after that was launched?

well, a 390x is pretty much 2 times faster than 680, since you have 2x680 and sli scaling is not 100% + 2x vram. i would say even a single 290x/390 will be 15-20% faster. as far cfx, when it works it's alot better than sli, but you will have to wait for cfx profiles sometimes. if you are planning to upgrade better go with rx480. because more features and p/w and future performance.

I just wonder what amd designed for, to match a 390/390x or match a furyx/980ti.
with the smallest core doable so they have a range of the big market as anyone upgrading from a 280/960/970/980/390 would gain at half the price and get entusiast end performance.
Leaving Vega to HBm2 and entusiast prices along the way.
That will be interesting to find out, soon.
