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 think you're wrong there. Iirc, PS4 now has 5.5GB memory useable which will likely increase to 6GB as the O.S gets shrunk down even further in terms of the resources it uses.

You know how hard is to sell a new GPU if for some reason 1080 Ti cant OC for example.

I can't speak for others, but as a 290x owner myself I can say I'm intrigued by this card for a few reasons. I love the performance of my 290x, but even under water it is a tiny space heater. If the 480 offers better performance with better power consumption and lower thermals, at 200 dollars I'd be game to snag one up, and possibly a second down the road, as my current psu could handle two 480s.

Also, it's fun to mess with new tech, so I'm waiting for reviews, and cautiously optimistic that it will perform better than my 290x...

think about it this way. Most gamers are gonna buy cards that cost around 200-350 dollars. If it keeps up with a 500 dollar fury and the 980 it only shows what vega will be capable of if they dont flop it. fury performance for 200 dollars you damn right i will buy one or two of them.

Please elaborate on this statement. Where do you find the information that RX 480 with >5TFLOPS "keeps up" with >7TFLOPS. No offence, I would just like to know where this is stated, seems very unlikely but would be amazing if indeed so!

The same way the 5.6 TFlop 980Ti blew the 7.1 TFlop Fury out of the water and usually beats the 8.6 Tflop X depending on settings and resolution...

Do we have to keep rehashing the whole 'compute performance != real world performance' every other day?

Sure, I agree on that but I meant R9 Fury vs RX 480, but I see the point, they have changed their chips so might not be worth comparing compute performance to predict IRL performance. Would just be quite weird for a $200 card to beat out the R9 Fury of ~$500, but okay maybe you're right smile.gif guess we have to wait and see.

I'm amazed that people still don't know what TFLOPS or Clock Speed means, while they often use them as a measurement between different cards and architectures, which is something as reliable as Donald Trump as President.

TFLOPS can only be used as measurement between two cards of the same architecture, same node, same everything, think of the 290 and 290X, Fury and Fury X.

TFLOPS can be used as a reliable measurement between different cards and architectures IF you intend to measure Compute Performance alone, not overall performance.

There are different Polaris 10 Variants, the Full Fat P10 is rumoured to sell for 300$ and should use two 6 Pins Connector, or a 8 Pin at the very least.

If we look at AMD history of releasing Mainstream and Performance cards (Think of the 7870 - 7850 and HD 6000 - 5000 Series equivalent) They always, without exception, launched a 7870 with more than a 6 Pins Power Connector and then a HD 7850 with a single 6 pin connector, every single generation it has been the same and it have never changed.

Polaris was revealed to have a single 6 Pin Power Connector, and if there is not another Polaris card with an extra 6 Pin connector then this will be the first time in AMD's history that this have happened.

AMD is most likely, if not surely, going to release a Full Fat P10 with a double 6 pins connector for 300$ and this is what's going to compete with a 1070, probably faster than a Fury X.

That is VR performance. General Performance P10 200$ should be around a 390, the real Fiji Performing card should be P10 300$.

In fact AMD is claiming that VR performance will be closer to $500 video cards, in which case we’d be looking at performance closer to the Radeon R9 Nano, a Fiji based card.
