As for memory bandwidth, that's an improvement made with Tonga, not a Polaris advancement.

The primative discard acclerator is mean't to be really stellar. Some programmers have tested this and its far ahead of anything yet released, how much it will help i don't know.

If you divide pascals clocks by maxwells clocks and then look at the performance gain for pascall vs the clock speed increase its not pretty either , in fact its most likely a regression. So if AMDs engineers are poor then its likewise for Nvidia.

You can argue with their decision to release cards from the bottom up this generation if you want to but you can't argue with the fact that the 480 is a bombshell of a card at the $200 price point that has literally no competition at this time. And that's just a fact.
YOU don't get it.

I'M NOT SAYING THE RX 480 IS NOT A GREAT DEAL. It's pretty damn awesome. I'm saying the chip itself makes me react like that tiger meme.

In the end it's the performance that matters, and they got 70% greater efficiency while pushing clocks to 2GHz. Minor shader efficiency regressions or not, that's impressive.

Such a plethora of great information in this thread. doh.gif It's a shame forums are still a proving ground to flex your internet muscles. If anyone could actually answer some questions and quit arguing for a second I'd like to know how long after release AIB cards take to start showing up?

I think powercolor is releasing theirs around the middle of July. That's probably when you'll see them. Somewhere around the 10th give or take.

Two weeks, best estimate.

NVIDIA was already a gen ahead of AMD in efficiency with Maxwell. AMD had a chance to catch up against Pascal and they didn't take it. What happens when Volta releases?

Speaking of the plethora of abundant information, have there been any CONFIRMED performance leaks?

Did you see my post above? Might be a bit too early to accurately judge IPC improvements.

the closest you can get to confirmation are the chinese ones with pictures of the actual gpu running actual stuff. NDA is still under effect for 2 and a half more days
