RX480, Only$199 for 8GB - Page 11

post #101 of 120
Main system power connector is below the orange color SATA cable, beside the white square Wifi card. http://oi42.tinypic.com/2144k5i.jpg

I measured, and it seems to be just taller than the clearance below a graphics card. I don't know what to do now.

Above photo is stock, I can't get a clear shot cause it is dark.

If you can bend it and fit the card over it, do that, the cable can handle it, mine is bent to hell for the sake of good looks smile.gif Your only other option is to get the shortest card possible. There will surely be Nano-sized cards in the new gen.

EDIT: Also there are PCI-E extender cables, so you can put your card someplace else, a lower slot for example.

Is the height of the main system power connector the same for all PCs? If so, maybe like you said the card will just go over with no issues.

But it's such a big risk, buy from Amazon to halfway across the globe, spend over $200 including shipping...and then it doesn't fit.

Should I be worried?

This is normal SHOWMANSHIP, you let loose the lesser card, spruiking it's performance on all levels BUT you keep the "Diamond" hidden until the Official Opening Day, to amaze any sideliners who are still stupidly addicted to Nvidia.

Always temp the buyers with something extraordinary, like their highest performing model and watch everyone out there clamour for it.

Perfect plan of introducing a Game Card that will sell more than Nvidia's range for this year alone. Cheap and Powerful, what more could you ask for in 2016?

Like Elon Musk does it.
produce a expensive Tesla car, shows it off and it goes fast an faster.
then later when hype has built up release the car tesla made for everyone.

However that works for cars but graphics are a bit different market.
amd changed strategy and good for us and them. thumb.gif

I tried calculating the length of the RX 480 and RX 470; Close enough you think? http://imgur.com/a/8DLWz

Got 9.32 inches for the RX 480 and 7.93 inches for the RX 470.

Just wondering, has AMD done paper launches like NV before? really pissed out at NV for such a craptastic launch. wondering if I need to pre-order the RX480 like I do games.

Both have, high end fury was in short supply for along time due to yields.

Never really bothered with grabing tech at launch but atm I'm going to be GPU-less by tuesday so would love to grab the 480 asap.
Is there a pre-order or they just launch and first come, first serve, applies?

missed the 1080 launch and 1070...well more like they were released and I only bothered to care to look the next day when everywhere it said out of stock. same with the 1070.
