GTX 1070 a tiny bit faster than 980Ti but vastly cheaper.
I find it extremely lolw-orthy AMDs revolution marketing.
AMD fanboys excuse is a more efficient architecture than 390, and even thst is absolutely hilarious considering they were bashing GTX 980 because then it didnt matter.
But now since its AMD it is suddenly important lol
I have a feeling you don't think before you write things.
You completely contradicted yourself, the 1070 to the 980ti is almost the exact same comparison as the rx480 to a 390x... you sing praises for one and call the other "MEH".
As for your last paragraph i don't know if you are slow, or you are trolling. Most people on this forum don't care about power consumption if the card performs well. HOWEVER, (I really need you to focus here), the mainstream market has made it abundantly clear that power consumption is an important selling point. The people here saying that power consumption doesn't matter that much have not changed their tune, THEY JUST UNDERSTAND THE CARD IS NOT FOR THEM, IT IS FOR THE MAINSTREAM MUCH LIKE THE 970.
Can we be done with this now?
