I don't know, I don't follow the Scorpio. Let me check, they just say six in a general sense as an estimate, no specific details, a speculation of what they mean precisely by that statement.

My point is even if they make APU for a console with 100CU on Polaris architecture it doesn't mean they have a GPU chip for consumer market with 100CU, it simply means someone has paid for a custom designed chip from AMD with 100CU.

The preliminary prices from shops have been seen in EU with 21% VAT as 7999CZK for 8GB and 6999CZK for 4GB RX 480. Of course these may change as the shop updates the products entry in it's database to make it actually possible to be ordered. Right now it's not even on preorder, just a trick in the shop's UI is used to show the price by adding the product to favorites.

Oh for sure, the $199 4GB card is a killer deal. No denying. It's the 8GB card that we know exists but have no idea about pricing that is concerning. There's no incentive to upgrade to the 8GB. If you're getting it for 1080p, just grab the 4GB version and save the extra money. If you're getting the extra VRAM for 1440p, it'd be better to get the GTX 1070 and have the power to push frames at that resolution for current and future AAA games.

Pretty much my line of thought. I'll probably be getting the 4GB version, unless there are other significant differences (higher clocks, better cooling). A few of the upcoming releases seemed interesting to me and I thought that this generation of cards would be a good time to get back into gaming for me. As I have recently bought a nice 4K display, I set myself a budget of €650, only to find out there's bupkis at that pricepoint that would fit my needs. Grab the cheapest 1080p capable card, play those few games I want to and try again in a few years. Fo' shame.

Considering that both Shadow of Mordor and Doom 4 require about 6 GB and 5 GB respectively for their highest texture settings I'm not sure how well a 4 GB card is going to hold up in the future, even at 1080p. I mean even if the card is powerful enough to render the graphics when there's not enough memory you'll have no choice but to dial down the graphics.

That being said I hope we don't enter a VRAM race. Among other things I remember that Directx 12 is supposed to bring a very efficient memory compression system that would render even the highest quality textures while only using a few hundred MB at most.

Just because something can use that much VRAM doesn't mean it needs it.

There you go, some fresh 3dMark scores.

http://videocardz.com/61005/new-amd-radeon-rx-480-3dmark-benchmarks

Not bad, this 470 looking better and better, only 10% behind 480. I hope it's around $150.

We are assuming that these are stock results (but bear in mind that it is PC Partner sample, which might be slightly factory-overclocked). We are working on obtaining overclocking scores, but it may take a while. Of course these are 100% legit scores, unlike some strange charts you saw on Chinese forums. Anyway, this puts RX 480 in between R9 390X and GTX 980. There are no Fire Strike Performance Preset scores yet (which could alter overall % figures a bit).
much more believable then the "Fury/on the heels of the 1070" stuff redface.gif

Nonsense, the APU in the Xbox uses X86 cores so Microsoft can't own anything they simply pay AMD directly for the chips.
