ROTFL...  then why not just pay an extra $50 and get three RX 480s.. instead of one 1080..?  derp!

 

 

You are missing the point of people buying a RX 480... and then adding another one later. It is only $199 investment. And for $400 bucks, it as nearly capable as that uber high priced card called the 1080. The exact same card these people were never looking at to begin with, because they are mainstream.

 

Right..?

 

 

 

 

If you have the money, then RX480 is not in your vocabulary and of coarse you'll buy the 1080 over 2 RX480's. So would I. But you and me are not mainstream consumers. Right..?

AMD perhaps knew Xfire 480s were faster than a 1080, and wasnt ready to show single GPU performance with current driver state.

Aaand since when people already have 1080? I mean, beside the few chosen benchmarkers/reviewers? The GPU is still not even open for selling, it was only PRE-ORDER. Also, as tested on all sites, the ASUS 1080 Strix which is 100% better than the FE, COULDN'T reach STABLE 2Ghz without throttling.

Not sure when or where you were looking but stores had stock on the 27th, for example OCUK in the UK had 1500 1080s in stock and sold every one, Scan had quite a few and sold them all. So there are actually quite a few people with 1080s.

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

But you can't buy Polaris yet and its performance is very much an unknown. With the GTX 980 you know what you're getting. I think the true value of used card prices will only be determined AFTER all these launches....

Dmitry from my crew was in the room and pretty much everyone there commented that the settings looked different. There was also some micro-stutter evident on the Crossfire system but that's to be expected in Ashes.

However, I'm probably one of the few that actually PLAYS Ashes and I can say for a fact that the GTX 1080 has some minor rendering issues with in-game foliage and rocket contrails. I have yet to see those translate into the benchmark but I'm not sure which driver AMD is using so it would be tough to replicate on my end.

In AMD's defense, actually getting settings to apply properly in Ashes is a royal PITA. You'll go into the Options menu change a bunch of stuff including the resolution, it tells you to reboot the game and when you restart everything BUT the resolution is back to where it was before you hit "apply". The only way to properly get it to "stick" is to first change the resolution, then reboot, then use the presets (Crazy, Extreme, etc.) rather than manual inputs, then apply and reboot the game again.

All in all though, since we couldn't see what the actual real-time framerate was there's no way to accurately compare where each solution really stood.

If they do end up having a 8GB Variant, i'll sell my R9 390 with a AIO liquid cooler on it, and grab 1. or 2 of those.

At 8:31 you can see exactly what I am talking about.

A ton of missing terrain and all the mountains are rounded. Yes my gameplay on my 290x looks 10x better than the settings they picked to get 62 FPS.

You can also see that the picture on the left is slightly more zoomed out. That alone can be the cause of the difference of end result of what we are viewing does not mean they are not on the exact same settings.
They do look different thou.

"Very much Unknown"

We have leaked 3DMark scores and AMD had a demonstration last night. This thread refers to the demonstration AMD did, in case you missed it. The performance of Polaris isn't "Very much unknown."

If you picked weaker words, I'd agree. This is the time for people to dump their cards before the launch. If you had a 980, would you be willing to sit on it for a month or sell now while you still can?

Sadly Aussies and neighbors up north or pretty much everywhere else can't get those prices. You must be US based.

Im actually Europe based and Europe prices will be horrible as usual

the 480X will not cost $200 where I live either, it will be at least 250+ EUR, if not close to 280-300 EUR at launch


nothing can be done unless you can have someone smuggle you a card from US lol
