like you can SLI 1070 (yeah its not exactly cheap, but still) and absolutely destroy both CF 480 and a single 1080 (and possibly still be on par or ahead of 1080Ti) and go straight into 4K@60+ territory .. but again you have to deal with that SLI mad.gif

 

I am not a fan of SLI, or Xfire...

 

Up until just a few years ago, both were essentially a gimmick. Multi-gpu technology is improving and should be a serious consideration when building a rig today and forward. And remember, $400 is the cost of entry for CF'ing two 480s. But the new AMD 480 is an easy all-in-one pick, or choice for special builds.

 

 

HDMI and Display Port what..? DirectX12 what..? Vulkan what..? Power what..?

 

 

 

 

Those who can afford a 980ti, Titan, or 1080..  are not interested in mainstream cards. But those who a budget minded and building this holiday season, know later next year the can (if the need to) pick up another card and add more graphic power to their rig. Or if the get a bigger monitor, etc.

 

ie: Xfire and SLI marketing provide an easy way to slip things pass the wife, if you sneak one in 8 months later. 

 

 

 

480 @ $199  ...?

 

I know my Titan's value just dropped today, and my 1 year old 980 might be replaced with something that has newer ports. It's just to easy not to buy a 480, even if to have just laying around.

Should be 1060.

Right now: GTX 980.

In the future: GTX 1060.

I don't know how low Nvidia con go whit a 1060. The rumored price was like 240$.

I think what's now evident is that AMD is perfectly content (for the time being) to leave NVIDIA to the high end niches and assault the volume segments. IMO, it is an absolutely brilliant plan and one they needed to implement.

I agree

Thanks guys.

So this GPU is 200 bucks. Good price for sure.

I can not see gtx 1060 being lower than 275.
post #277 of 1394
This guy is still blowing up my inbox telling me a used 980 is worth more than $150 when you can buy Polaris for $199.

My thread that I just closed. A used GTX 980 without a warranty is worth $125 tops.

The upcoming Ps4 Neo may very well have something close to this gpu in it, and the new Xbox next year will probably have something close to Vega.
^ Are you for real or just trolling??? lachen.gif The PS4 Neo & Nextbox1.5 will not have anywhere close to the performance of a RX 480 & it will be decades before we see as console that will match up to whatever Vega winds up being. The main reason they are updating the consoles is because AMD changed all their fabs over to 14nm & do not want to keep producing 28nm chips just for PS4 & XB1. So instead of just updating the manufacturing process to refine the current APUs in the consoles & deliver us slim models (MS may have got to this before the fab change as I have heard rumors of a XB1 slim) Sony & MS have no choice but to use a custom APU made from the 14nm process now. The benefit to consumers is that they will get slightly more powerful consoles but it will cost more & you can bet Sony & MS are not gonna absorb the cost. So what better way to hide the higher cost than to say "hey instead of making slim consoles we upgraded the APU for you! Although it will cost more but hey you'll get 10% to 20% more performance!" rolleyes.gif

Trust me these "upgraded" will be no panacea for console gamers. if they were that much more powerful they would be branded PS5 & XB2? IMHO. 2cents.gif

Dx12 put more demand on the game developer.
dx11 etc..still isnt an optimal way with crossfire/sli.

Why not slap a waterblock on the 250$ 480x and then oc it and play 1440p resolution?
Its what I plan to do.
or whatever comes out that suits my value king idea of a card biggrin.gif

probably good idea to wait for gaming benchmarks first for the $199 card and see if it really can match 980 head to head across the board thumb.gif
