I am not a hardcore overclocker or benchmarker. I like to play games, and I NEED something to power this 3440x1440 monitor that I bought about 6 months ago.

Seeing as an overclocked 980 Ti can match/beat and overclocked 1070, I have conceded that there is not a viable upgrade path to the performance I want without either severe compromises (multi-card) or a card that is out of my budget. Because of this, I just bought a 980 Ti CLASSIFIED for $449 from Newegg. Yes, I know it's the "Ref clock" version, but it has such a beefy design on it that it shouldn't have any issues overclocking like a demon... I hope. I also realize it's previous gen tech, but at that price, I can't really pass it up.

I love new tech so much, but I just feel underwhelmed right now. Even if the RX 480 overclocks to the moon and back, it won't reach 1070 or 980 Ti levels, which is where I need it to be... so I have to give it a pass.

Saw a 980 Ti with a full waterblock for about the same price. I'm sure the owner stll has the stock cooler. sell the block and wait for the Ti.

OCN market.

Considering your goals, the RX 480 was never meant for you anyway. This is a mainstream card, not a flagship.

For that price, you might as well have gotten a 1070 Flounder's Flanders Founder's Edition from nVidia direct. Hell they even have them in stock right now: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/10series/geforce-gtx-1070

Tell you what: send that 980 Ti back as soon as it arrives, and just buy the 1070 FE.

That moey1974 dude posted this today on videocardz:

posted this yesterday at the other site but for all you skeptics,
you'll see that a nicely overclocked Rx 480 rivals a stock 1070. I keep
saying it because my brother has a ref 480 and his business partners
have a few AIB 6+8 pin Rx 480's and plenty more of the reference
cards.

Long story short is this...

Why buy a 1070 when a
single Rx 480 OC'd beats/rivals the stock 1070? A 1500+ OC is very
doable on the double pin cards, the 6+8 pin cards i mean. Ref cards do
quite well if the person knows what he's doing. This guy in the video seems a little lost lol kidding but seriously, his reference is even more capable than what he shared and its even hard to see what he's doing and getting in terms of results.

There are enough confirmed
sources on my side to say with 100% confidence that the Rx 480 OC'd is
indeed a contender with a stock 1070 in just about all new games or
rather all Dx12 games. We are at a point now that real in-game
benchmarks should start to come out this week that will show what i am
saying is indeed true. So hold off on trying to buy a 1070, You really
would be wasting money imho. Both single and double pin Rx 480's rock
big time when overclocked. You can clearly see AMD designed these cards
to overclock nicely because they're a lot more efficient when
overclocked.
Super Over 9000!

So, his source claims that rx480 gains 60% performance from at most 34% overclock?


With all due respect, where is the tiger?
