I'm at 91% at 200W on this Corsair. I'll take it. thumb.gif

1. These cards, or
2. DX12 MultiGPU

...to make that call. More info needed, especially with next-gen VR titles. If you can find anything at the $1000 pricepoint that would match 4 480s in raw speed, you're welcome to it (2 Vegas? One can hope...). Crossfire will soon be made obsolete by API, but I'm just not as afraid of it for all these aging DX11 titles as most of the grumps here on OCN.

I meant i hope them saying $199 - $300 stops AIB's from pricing above $300. thumb.gif

I dont think we have too much to worry about with AIB partners. At $199 MSRP it gives AIB plenty of wiggle room. But IMO if they can give more performance for over $300 I would gladly take it. Not over $350 though.

Newegg's listing for the RX 480 VisionTek is only running at 1120 MHz. That's a bit lower than the 1266, unless the 1266 MHz is a boost clock.

Well considering 1070 is supposed to be $380 *coughcoughwinkwinknudgenudge*, yeah you don't want to go above $300 if the card can only OC to around Fury (non-X) levels of performance.

$379! The Nvidia fanpeople will attack you for that mishap.

If we are listing our unrealistic desires regarding the 480 I'd rather it be "unlockable" to 2560 or 2816 SP than OCes to the moon if you pump 250+ Watts into it.

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."

http://www.amd.com/en-us/press-releases/Pages/e3-sneak-peek-2016jun13.aspx

Some believe that the $100-300 was used to indicate the market range (like it is used on the slide), not as a specific price range for these cards. Charging $299 for a MSRP $229 card is a pretty hefty percentage increase for custom cards, even if it isn't so much in actual dollars.

It's been rumored for months the full die is 2560 SPs. Where you been, bro?

Yeah if you re-check the Newegg listing it states 1266MHz boost.



It also supports CUDA now too wink.gif

Well the thing here is, only using 14nm clockspeed improvements you only get to about mid 1600's with clockspeed improvements, and that's Fury X performance @ 1440p. But if there is a way to get it over that performance then I would gladly pay up to $350 for that. As of now we don't know what architectural improvements AMD has done. With 16nm NVIDIA has gone way over their predicted clockspeed improvements. I did the math months ago for clockspeed improvements with the 1080 and 1070 based on 16nm clockspeed improvements and NVIDIA was able to go way above that.

This potentially means that AMD could possibly have the same thing on their hands here, except they aren't exploiting it as much as NVIDIA is. In that, they have the same ability to vastly improve clockspeeds but they are taking a slightly different route than just implementing all of the clockspeed boosts directly to the card at launch like NVIDIA has done.

While this is what they state in the slides, it is not what they state in the literature. Which was also posted below the slide that came directly from the AMD website. I'm sure if there was a misunderstanding with pricing segments AMD would have attempted to clear the air on that subject, no?
