I think you missed the point,the good thing is that two cards for the value of 400$ are beating a single 600$ card.

Use that to parlay themselves into advantageous agreements with laptop makers seeking better battery life and into mainstream desktop solutions by offering decent drivers.

It's usual AMD marketing delay tactics - release some misleading slides - slides get interpreted into OMG it will awesome - then it's released turns out it's not so great but we are now one more month close to another AMD "gamechanger".

Also I don't know where you are getting performance per watt leader - at the moment we are looking at possibly 130-150W gpu with 390X performance vs 180W 20-30% faster than Titan X gpu

Or rather it would be good if the game in question wasn't badly bottlenecked by cpu performance.

Exactly this. GTX 1080 for $600 is being beat by a pair of $200-250 cards. That's a good value if you ask me. thumb.gif

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 don't find it stupid. If more people went crossfire / SLI, maybe developers would start giving it a second thought and start progressing it rather than having a potential technology that would benefit everyone stagnate.

But then again, if they did find a way to have perfect multi-card support with 100% scaling, would they even pass that benefit along to the consumer? Or would they just start charging insane premiums for the smaller, easier to fab chips and nothing will really change? It's crazy what gamers are willing to pay for.

Gotta agree with you on that. It's crazy how there are people claiming lolfailAMD because it doesn't compete with 1080 unless xfire. AMD never made any claims about performance prior to Computex. It was random tech site members speculating and creating their own hype. Even now, we still only know very little other than what AMD showed in their presentation which is for the starting price of $200 you have a card that they claim gives you the performance of a $500 card. Now, that can be interpreted many ways but I tend to look at it as possibly being equivalent or slightly better than last gen $500 cards like the Fury and 980. Those cards are likely soon to be relegated to the $300 bargain bin, which still makes the 480 look like a great deal considering its revised architecture, larger vram pool and lower power draw. Either way, all of this is still pure speculation until we get concrete performance numbers.

Maybe the guy got the wooden screw GTX480 that NVIDIA showed a fed years back

This is all like

"Hey guys guess what happened to me on the way to work this morning!!!! Sorry, I can't say. You have to wait exactly 2 weeks 3 days and 15 hours to find out." And the foreign language reviews even adds to the suspense. Next we'll find out the mafia is killing anyone who talks about it.

NDA's are usefull, they make a launch a whole less confusing usually, USUALLY Points at Nvidia

Let me know if I understand this correctly. You speculate the RX 480 will be better than last gen $500 cards in power consumption, VRAM, and performance, and then go on to say those old, used, less powerful cards with less VRAM will cost more than a new, power efficient, faster card with more VRAM?

Am I understanding you correctly? I dont understand how an old, used, and slower card can be worth more than a new, and faster card. Help me understand.
