How much can i roughly get for a MSI 390 TF? Bought it less than a year ago

Rolleyes straight back at you.

The cards are aimed at the mid range......ie AMD 390.

They were never meant as an upgrade to your card.

It's gonna be faster than a 390 at stock. Probably faster than a 980 at least in benches.

even as a mid range it is still disappointing. Just basically a 390 but smaller die and lower power consumption and cost.rolleyes.gif

Used to remember when every tier (low to mid to high) of GPUs had improvements per node shrink or architectural changes, no matter be it power consumption or performance. Even the 1070's faster than a Titan X.


For $400-500 in my currency, it is basically a ripoff. Sapphire is asking $400 for the RX 480 Nitro. Can't wait for the more premium AIBs who will surely ask $500 for thier cards.frown.gif

You contradict yourself on the first and second points.

'Just basically a 390 on a smaller die with lower power consumption' - Then that is a huge improvement from the node shrink.

'Used to remember when every tier (low to mid to high) of GPUs had improvements per node shrink or architectural changes, no matter be it power consumption or performance' - Which is exactly what they have done, and you stated it on the first line.

Ripoff you say? You bought an overpriced rebranded 290 so you'd be used to being ripped off anyway..............rolleyes.gif

You've obviously done no research on the cards or ignored AMD's statements about the card's performance, there is no other way to be disappointed, you've set yourself up for that by unrealistic expectations.

Guess i'll hold on to the 390 and wait for Vega, not worth being out $100+/ bucks for a measly improvement imo given the retailer markups in my area.frown.gif

You don't even see the point of the RX 480...

For $200 and the performance it offers, is a bargain.

Again, it will be faster than a 390. And for $200.

Actual tangible performance, right now it's just like a new 1.4 turbo engine matching what it's predecessor(let's say a V8 engine) put out.


I only got the 390 because my 780 had died unexpectedly. Otherwise i'd be rocking that 780 until Vega. Hardly a ripoff imo.

so you come here bashing a card because it will provide almost a fury nano kind of perf for just 200? you people have run out of ideas to just keep bashing?even if the card does perform only at 390 having half of its price with more than 50% drop on tdp is enough to justify it

I just bought a 2nd hand 970 Strix but it looks like these new 480's will retail around what I paid for it. Should I have waited? I only play Blizzard games on PC (PS4 for the rest) and from what I understand Nvidia > AMD for Blizzard titles.
