They might go out and say its a tragedy it happened, but most likely they wont say a thing and let it go because there is nothing they can do

This is very unlikely to be some scheme by AMD. It just indicates there is product now arriving to retailers. If a retailer really did let product walk off early and results in an early unofficial review it's a safe bet AMD will give their blessing for official reviews to be posted.

it will be 199 because its the same performance we already have

and crossfire, oh boy, Raja either doesnt know the state of their own CF support or they hope to sell more card volumes on an empty promise


this coming from a 69xx CF & 290 CF owner. just hope this lowers nvidia pricing a bit, nothing else.

This times a Thousand.

Several people I know have cards, but CHOOSE not to release information to comply with the NDA we signed. Most folks have good reputations to uphold, and will not risk backlash from the very partners who basically give them a job.

I'm with you on this. I saw the leaked performance of this and felt disappointed it didnt seem any faster than the 970 I already have. This is irrelevant to me. It wont push down 1070 pricing because its not anywhere near the same performance range.

When officially released, Im really hoping this card fights with a GTX 980, at least. Because those last gen cards will be going the way of the dustbin giving how 1070's perform and how much 1070's will cost once the prices have settled down.

The funny thing is that Raja show fancy graph where Polaris 10 in Crossfire seems like the clear better choice.


Until you stumble upon a game with no Crossfire support, or you have to wait for 1-2-3 months before Crossfire is ready, or crappy scaling. Suddenly it isnt so great.
Relying on Crossfire to beat a single card from the competition is stupid at best. It can work great sometimes where it beats GTX 1080 a tiny but, mediocre at other times where it will perform a lot less than GTX 1080, or just horrible where it will be like half the performance

That they pick AoTS to market the card isnt a coincidence either because thats one game where AMD does better. We will see how it will turn out in other games..

I dont even know why AMD tries to pretend its near the performance crown anymore. They need to accept their new role as price vs. performance and price per watt leader. Use that to parlay themselves into advantageous agreements with laptop makers seeking better battery life and into mainstream desktop solutions by offering decent drivers.

Ummmmmm... that's exactly how they are positioning the RX 480.

I still don't understand how people on this forum don't understand that we (enthusiasts) do not make up the majority public looking for discrete GPU's. The majority of the market is looking for around $250 or less for a GPU. This is exactly how they are positioning the RX 480.

Im almost certain all companies do a controlled leak every now and then to get the hype rolling

Only if they know their 480 product looks good @ $200 vs. the GTX 980 wink.gif

Actually with DX12 and Explicit Multiadapter it's not a bad time to go with multiple GPUs. If AdoredTV is right, AMD is about to go all MOAR CORES with GPU clusters on stacked interposers with Navi. The groundwork for that begins now, and you have to admit the biweekly driver releases are a huge improvement.

Otherwise it's just the standard Nvidia marketing talking points, most of which is either inaccurate or no longer relevant.

Exactly...if you read my post, youre just reiterating my point. I dont understand why we have a pic of dude standing next to a graph that shows his two cards barely beating one nvidia card, and acting like its a good thing. Its almost as if he didnt get the memo. Which was the point of my post.
