Unless of course they are offering much more performance at $300.

I mean if at $300 it offers nearly 20% performance improvement over the $200-230 cards I would say it is worth it. That's nearly a whole other card.

It would have to be a freakin beast that is clocking to 1700mhz on every card whilst the $229-$269 versions are only going to 1500mhz.

Even that is not 20%

This scenario is based on adding a 6 pin to the existing 8 pin to allow for higher clocks compared with the single 8pin cards (which can be OCed too). Unless It shows a considerable performance difference, wouldn't such an extra cost just be for a fancy name

And fancy cooler. The best value cards will probably be in the $250-ish region.

I'm not sure about 1750MHz. I think upper 1600's will be the limit of these cards. But even then I speculated at 1600MHz it would have Fury X performance @ 1440p.

Well I think AMD might follow NVIDIA here offering some factory overclocked cards that are considerably higher than the reference, of course including the additional power, but if at stock factory overclocks they have say 1500MHz clock speeds, that puts it above a Fury @ 1440p.

The 980 Ti G1 gaming was 40$ more. We all can see that was a reasonable increase for the performance offered.

Nvidia is hardly someone they should emulate. Their money grubbing tactics stopped being cute a while ago. Price it appropriately, don't lie about specs and no FE bull****. Follow that mantra and the RX 480 will end up in my cart.

PS : The 1070 is 650$ where i live. Talk about delusional pricing. Idiots.

Well we're talking $70 more, on a far more basic PCB with less components.

Besides all the leaks/rumors, a single chip being able to cover such a wide price range should give us a clue regarding it's OC ability. wink.gif

Their $199-$300 statements hopefully sent a strong hint to the AIB's. The most fascinating part is going to be how close it can get to the 1070.. If some customs can get anywhere near it while being $150 cheaper (Nvidia is also far more expensive than AMD in a lot of other countries besides the U.S, you could be looking at half the price in a lot of places), then this thing is going to dominate both the low and mid-range markets.

If all these rumors and clock speeds turn out to be real, then my Vega hype is going to go through the roof.. biggrin.gif

There's no doubt there will be $300 options:



Has to do something with overclocking capabilities. Since we know that this is the full lineup of cards (480, 470, 460):

AMD Provides Sneak Peek of Full Line of Radeon™ RX Series Graphics Processors:

"Today at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) CEO Lisa Su delivered a pre-launch showcase of the full line of forthcoming Radeon™ RX Series graphics cards set to transform PC gaming this summer by delivering enthusiast class performance and features for gamers at mainstream price points from $100-$300."

Even if the 480 goes that high with OC and extra power, they should BRAND the "beast mode" cards as RX 490.
