[AMD] Polaris based RX 480 and "High performance solutions" announced at computex - Page 61

post #601 of 1394
I'd slap 2 of these on one board and sell it for 450 and call it a victory.

This card will be a great for people like myself. Who has old parts in their HTPC that want HDMI 2.0a for 4K TV. Plus it will work nicely as a steam box since its a small card. Probably do a build in this case with the 480

Low end cards have the tendency holding up their value after they drop sometime because Nvidia/AMD have this practice of selling new gen cards with silly DDR3/64bit @ those price range.

But it also plays games worse than the 960? lol

Unless AMD's drivers drastically improve in next month, i believe Rx 480 is not going to beat Nano. In fact, unless AMD overrated TDP of P10, it will be about as efficient as Nano or even less.

I was referring more to the long term not so much polaris only. AMD is pushing CF more with Pro 2 Duo, now RX480 demo. They seem to be more focused with multi GPU and Nvidia has optimized and focused on bigger single GPU's. Then you have Dx12/Vulkan coming around the bend. Given AMD's hands on the console market hardware and the fact consoles heavily impact PC gaming. I am wondering if they have something coming down the pike with dual gpu's (console maybe?). The interesting point is consoles are always using low end hardware mostly, and maybe they can get around that with multigpu somehow for 4k TV's. Something is amiss here unless it's just simple as Nvidia and AMD always go opposite directions(decisions) regardless of market.

Edit: also forgot VR dual gpu for each eye etc..

Nvidia/AMD would probably pick the scenario that presents them in the best light.

Honestly, ANY benches presented by a manufacturer during the announcement of a card should be taken with a bucket of salt. As always, I reserve final judgement on a release until OCN members have cards in hand and start giving us real world numbers to digest...

This, but i always find real world fps on a card to be way better than some review sites tho.tongue.gif

The variance should be below 3-4%. And i don't know which version is faster.

  • All the terrain assets are the same. You can clearly see all the roads below the snow. This doesn't affect the rendering performance it's the same for both cards.
  • Second snow is a pain in game engines. You need special shaders for good looking snow. There should be an overhead for this kind of snow.

I already answered this on the reddit : Click

(Thanks to some specific OCN members for their support wink.gif )


Another example that explains what happens quite well :

I hope that this demo of dual RX480s is a sign that they will do their utmost going forward to make all AAA titles CFX supported. If they push this , they have a way forward for consoles also.

I don't have an issue with dual GPUs in fact i've pretty much had dual GPUs for over a decade or it feels near that. Microstutter etc .. never noticed it as vsync sorted that years ago - the non vsync crowd however they might have had reason to moan.

Time will tell if dual 480s can best the 1080 but knowing amd and their drivers continuously improving - i think they will put it off where it matters. In the meantime knowing nvidia maxwell comparative performance will nose dive - owning maxwell i'm not looking forward to it.

I'm cautiously optimistic and looking forward to vega.

I'm sure re overclocking fun vega can't be as tapped out as the 1080 appears to be (1080 strix reports etc) , and i like to play with my overclocking.
