Did Kepler actually get gimped in the performance arena or was optimization and support just stagnate?
VS AMD with their carried over/improved GCN architecture getting further optimized and refined?

Definitely the latter. My cards are still as strong as they ever were but they haven't improved with driver releases in a very long time.

On principal alone, I'd but the 8GB varient. The era of 256MB vram consoles saw pc games hitting 1GB pretty reliably, so the current gen having 2GB vram (I've heard ps4 games can only use 4GB of ram total) would mean pc games will probably routinely hit 6-7GB within a few years.

I've seen 3300MB in bf4 max aa just 1080. 3750MB in 4K without aa. mp, though.

The 8gb version of this 480 might be what, $230-250? 8gb 390's are around 300-310 at the moment.

Its going to need to be a bit faster then the 390 otherwise its not even going to be a good buy (8gb vs 8gb taken into consideration)

Really need these benchmarks to hit biggrin.gif

It's going to be faster than the 390 for sure.

But it's slower than a Fury, isn't it?
I wonder how AMD is gonna sell it's Fury.

It's going to be a good year to buy a card, if you are going green or you are going red.

Either or.

The sooner the cards release, the easier the choice will be. AND I feel like for the first time in 3 years AMD is going to be better than ever in CPU and GPU department.

Not saying BETTER than NVIDIA, because I really don't think so in terms of GPU, but they are on the rebound lately. Which is GREAT for the consumer.

The more competition between manufacturers the easier it is for us. Rather than NVIDIA dictating EVERYTHING in the market, and Intel taking wins every year, no matter what AMD did before.

I also remember nVidia capping Fermi owners to 999Mhz max overclocks after the 680 was on the Market for over half a year or so. But should we really complain about this? I mean yes we should and nVidia probably should give a total software EOL support date from the release of their cards since they've been doing this since the release of Kepler.
What two years of great driver support than drop off?

Why do people with 290/X~390/X looking at this card and talking about replacing theirs for this? This isn't even really a side grade for a lot of people and pretty much for people stuck with 7970/280/380/960/770 etc owners.

It's okay. Nvidia already locked the overclock of 1080p at 2.1ghz for the upcoming 1080ti release.
