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

It may be that for the US, but it costs $400-500 in my area. While that is not the fault of AMD, as a consumer itself, $500 a pop is pretty steep, especially when in the worse case scenario, $500 a pop for what is essentially just a TDP drop is not justifiable imo. Tech as a whole is pretty generally expensive here and i want to stretch every penny of my hard earned money for tangible performance




$1.3k for a 1080 FE for example... a mid range die. Back in the day we could get the OG titan for that money. Now all it nets you is a mid range GP 104 die.



Hope you can at least see it from my point of view.

200 is a good joke everywhere else but selected parts in the North America.

Let's not forget that this card -directly- replaces the R9 380. So yeah, it's a pretty significant improvement. At the same price as the card it's replacing. 380 right now is about £170 with VAT. Let's be generous and mark up the 480 to £220 for a nice bells-and-whistles AIB model. That's still a nice deal.

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

Bad car analogy.

Its computationally between 390 and 390x at stock/reference.
It uses half the power.
It has the possibility of overclocking further, putting it damned close to T-X/980 Ti/1070 stock numbers.
It costs $200(USD, reference), the price of a GTX 960 or R9 380 (with the performance from the tier above that)

290/290x -> 480 mild upgrade in performance with a massive power usage drop.
390/390x -> 480 sidegrade in performance with a massive power usage drop.
GTX 970/980 -> 480 sidegrade with small power consumption drop.
GTX 960/270(x)/370/280(x)/380(x) -> 480 Large performance boost, possibly less power consumption depending on previous card.

If you are already at least at the GTX 970/R9 290 level, you wont see much more performance out of the box with a reference card. If there are AIB cards clocked 20-30% higher, you will get next tier up (+25%) performance.

Why not pay someone in the US to buy it and ship it to you, if local prices are broken like that?

For some stupid reason i thought so too that Blizzard have optimized their games for Nvidia.
That is part of the mindset that Nvidia is depended on i guess.

There is no such thing with blizzard games however i have researched and apart from an Nvidia "meant to be played" logo back in the days 6+ years even there is nothing else.
So Blizzard does not cater for Nvidia more than they do for AMD. Further more i believe Blizzard had a team of their developers take part in the developing of Vulkan so that is something that in long term could mean they will support it on some of their titles and thus the current AMD products with better a-sync support will get a nice boost out of it.

i dont see why it is a bad car analogy. Downsizing, same performance to a 390 with reduced consumption. I agree that anything below 290x may see tangible improvements but 390 and above, it is essentially a sidegrade, just a TDP drop. For select markets, some don't enjoy the $200 pricetag and imo it is harder to justify plonking money on what is essentially just a TDP drop. That's just me, though,.

The overclocking may be suspect too. For all we know we might see diminishing gains for example. At this point, i think i'll see what happens on the 29th.

Well the problem with that is that i don't have anyone i know of in the US and i'd be bummed if anything happened to the card down the line. Warranty issues and all that.

$1.3k for a 1080 FE for example... a mid range die. Back in the day we could get the OG titan for that money. Now all it nets you is a mid range GP 104 die.



Hope you can at least see it from my point of view.
so wait are you actually blaming amd because your country charge a lot more on the electronics?
are you actually doing this?

You should make more NA friends so they can buy the card with money you send them on Paypal and ship pretending it was a gift. Most of the time gifts are not charged import tax. Legitimately however I actually send gifts to my friends overseas without import tax because it's a gift. The whole money around thing is your deal and you shouldn't exploit it because someone could get into some serious trouble.
