RX480, Only$199 for 8GB - Page 5

post #41 of 120
If a 8GB 480 can OC and match the performance of a 1070, I'll buy 2, provided AMD can keep crossfire working properly. My 770s are getting a little long in the tooth, and I wouldnt mind going team red now that windows 10 lets me play my old GoG games on AMD again.

Also interesting, whatever happened to that rumored 2560 core polaris chip, the C0? 2304 is a weird number to end on. Perhaps AMD is holding it for a surprise launch?

i'm not really fond of those throttling/frame-cap features, they usually end up with more frametime variance.
if you want a perfect frame consistency, you'd want the GPU to render each frame at the shortest time possible.

but yes, ideally if you do cap a GPU to just pump out the right amount of frames, you can literally halve the power consumption.
at it is, even if V-Sync is on (caps the framerate output at 60FPS) the GPU still operates at the highest possible performance due to frame buffering, rendering more frames than it needs.

Do we know if the card will be tri-fire capable?

Seems like for high resolution gaming that such a setup could be the ultimate bang for the buck (assuming game support of course)

Does anyone know whether or when AMD will release a rival to NVIDIA's GTX 1080?

It seems 490X should be pretty close.

I gota go with the gamer nexus's opinion in a recient video on the 480. I doubt they will try to directly compete with nvidia for is long as they can and tackle the casual users under the $300 price point.
AMD is definitely focusing on economy builds.

correct, it has been proven by the market that the $200~$400 price point is where the money is at.


take steam's hardware survey for example - http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/videocard/
GTX970 = 5.13%
GTX960 = 3.40%
GTX980 = 1.04%
GTX980Ti = 0.99%

using steam's example, lets have 100,000 users as a baseline:
GTX970 = 100000 * 0.0513 * $330 = $1,692,900
GTX960 = 100000 * 0.0340 * $200 = $680,000
GTX980 = 100000 * 0.0104 * $550 = $572,000
GTX980Ti = 100000 * 0.0099 * $650 = $643,500

even both 980 and 980Ti combined can't outsell 970 alone, and even 960 have a larger profit than 980Ti.
this clearly shows that being a very powerful card doesn't make it worth the expensive price they're placed on.

the best practice in the market is to target a good price where everyone can easily afford, then impress the masses by brute-force perf/$.
in Nvidia's case their GTX970 was a major hit, by itself it can net them millions of dollars worth of sales, and the reason is because its an affordable fast card.
and AMD seems to have taken notice, this time its their $200 card with R9-390X performance, thats a massive perf/$ improvement and a very impressive $200 card.


and to top it all off, this is good publicity in the most attracting point, the users who saw "$200 @ R9-390X performance" would be thinking "then what of their $300 and $400 cards!?".

The problem the squeze they will feel when the 1060 comes. That will be interesting.
On the other hand the 1080 obviously has to make a good profit if the ceo is going around saying they spent enough money to go to mars in just R&D.

The 970 isn't the most profitable card. The most profitable is the Titan range but their sale numbers are so low that they only use them as advertisement. There are uncountable people who think that their GT210 is better than anything AMD have to offer simply because the fastest is made by their brand.

 

It's akin to having a Ferrari pram and thinking it's the fastest. Trying to reason with these people is a grave error and both AMD and Nvidia know it, thus they fight over the top spot just for advertisement sake.
