then why not say GDDR5X instead HBM? or just say that GCN is scalable to use any kind of memory? becaus those kind of sentence can lead to create more rumours

I expected it to be faster than fury for 100$ more.
The crossfire score seems low though, I get same number two 290x xfire. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Hell, if the RX 480 matches the Fury, i'd get one just for the low heat output. Its the beginning of summer right now and sometimes i need to blast the ac.

Thats what AMD was touting at the conference, but we've yet to see concrete numbers beside the aots bench against the 1080. The card will be out in a month, so we'll see some very soon.

the Vega series replaces 1080 and establish a whole new ballgame, october timeframe. (490 and up)

AMD has stated again and again Vega is a 2017 part. As a matter of fact it was highlighted as such in their latest Investor's briefings:

I could have but it is scalable to BOTH. Will AMD take that option and actually create a GDDR5X or HBM Polaris? Only time will tell.

I would wager there is a lot of room for improvement with CF drivers.

If those scores are true that's pretty darn impressive for $200.

This card isn't convincing 970 owners to switch, this is targeted at people running 960s. The ones with 970s are looking to the new 1070 as an upgrade, or waiting to see what big Polaris offers with it's RX 490.

This is an affordable card for the masses that allows people to max 1080P, play 1440P fairly well, and run VR, all without needing to upgrade their power supply. If we assume this card is ~R9 390X/980 performance levels, then they have essentially cut prices in half and lowered temps/noise.

The RX 480 will compete with the 1070 in DX12 only. 1070 is the clear winner once Nvidia gives up it's stupid Founder Edition nonsense and AIB's get cards in at 350$ like they were supposed to be.

Regardless, the only real choices for people to buy cards in a month are

480 for 200$
1070 for 379$
1080 for 599$

I expect the 1060 and Vega to launch around the same time in november, Vega 10 may not have HBM, and Vega 11 may be a ways out

You're selling it way short.

It is designed for 390/970 owners to upgrade to as well as 370/960 owners.

The 970 is a card with 3.5GB effective memory for christ sake, a 480 with 8GB VRAM and performance on par with a Fury for $229 is most definitely an upgrade with a price so low you could make a profit by selling your old card. If you are quick tongue.gif

I may pick one up if it's legitimately better than my 290 in every benchmark and it has half the heat output. Summer is here and man if this thing isn't Hawaii thumb.gif
