[AMD] Polaris based RX 480 and "High performance solutions" announced at computex - Page 63

post #621 of 1394
If the GTX1060 is indeed a cut down GP104, this is a problem for nvidia.
They were not planning to price it $200, not even $250.

More importantly, is it going to coil whine and sound like a leaf blower?

But aren't guys talking about this card competing with 980 performance?

If the RX480 is slower than GTX 980, even at 200$, it won't be the absolute insane card everyone praises it to be.

There is a very fine line. If the card is on par with GTX 980 (on average, DX11 games etc.) and overclocks aswell then we have a very good card for 200$.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling when review come out it will be somewhere in the area between 970 and 390X/980.

I think it is dangerous to look at the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 and then scream "yay RX480 for 199$. Take that nvidia you gonna go down. Sell all stocks. Nvidia is done"

Increased performance has diminishing return when it comes to price. If a card is 200$ then that doesn't mean a card at 400$ is twice as good and a card at 1000$ won't be 5 times as fast.

The question is, would a RX480 which performs like a 970/290, really be an "insane" card at 200$?
it's confirmed to have 2304x2x1266= 5.8 tflops. let's assume they haven't increased ipc. that means it will be 5.9/5.8= 1% slower than 390x, means same as 980. which isn't a bad deal.

but if and big if, those 2.8x p/w claims are true than @150w it will perform same as 420w card of previous gcn. means it will be faster than 390x. there's also a hint of it's performance in dx12, they showed 1080@100% =~2x480@50%, does that mean with 100% utilization it will be 2x as powerful as 1080 or a single 480=~1080 ? lol biggrin.gifa bomb if true redface.gif

i think it will perform close to Fury/nano. both are faster than 980/390x. but we'll see soon. card already meets my expectations and it's good enough.

Pretty much yes to all this, can't guarantee exactly double the power but should be close.

Just talk. Maybe some have reliable info but i doubt it. We have to wait till a member gets a hold of one. If it matches the 980, then it will match your 7950s.

I say it will be slower than GTX 980 in DX11 and synth. Benchmarks.

It would be an amazing win for AMD if this card is faster in DX11 than the GTX 980 and overclocks well.

Very cool, and I'm not even sure that 2 7950's actually give you twice the power of 1 7950 (scaling) so this might be my chance to swap out crossfire, get the 4 outputs I need, and spend less than $300 Canadian. Nice. And yeah, I see those 4 outputs as I watch the Linus video.

I think they are a good upgrade for many people. Including myself biggrin.gif

Might get an 8GB version for if I decide to go Xfire 1440p plus the resale value should be better too thinking.gif

Dx11, i don't know maybe you are right. but it will be faster in dx12/vr for sure. and about oc , well they haven't said anything so only time will tell.

i hope it's not another overclocker's dream biggrin.gif
