Just pointing something out.smile.gif

I'm not going to dig through all the posts, it's a long weekend and I'm with the future in-laws and posting from my phone, but if you look through the GTX 1080 thread you'll see people guessing clock speeds and me saying higher or lower. I indicated north of 3 GHz there smile.gif

Anyway, 13:00 and lunchtime.

Except for when a vendor (AIB partner) says they aren't taking orders yet.


Does nvidia play you for this bull****? I mean seriously...

Der b8uer said max what you can do is 2,5GHz with LN2.

after
"850 max on Polaris"
"delay to october"

You should stop posting. This is laughable...

Will the aftermarekt 480 be much more expensive than the £160 4GB 480?

thanks
Yes get an AIB, the rest no one knows, usually AMD only has AIB cards so there is not much option later on to get a cheap crappy reference blower. But the blowers on these newer low power cards may be more desirable for some where as blowers on 290 series were not sufficient coolers.

I would still get an AIB, hopefully they make one with 1x8pin and dual fan.

There is nothing we can do to speed things up. Just gotta wait until AIBs make their cards and ship them to stores.

AIBs coming out mid of July, two weeks of exclusivity reserved for 8GB reference. Price is anywhere between $250 to $300.

So the best cards to buy are out mid july? whats the difference between the ones out end june and mid july?

 

Im only looking at the 4GB cards.  Also is 4GB enough for 1440p?

 

My bro has a 1440p build and I have a 1080p build, both looking to put a 480 in.

 

thanks

I'd go for 8GB, because honestly while the majority of games might not use 8GB for now, we're definitely going to start seeing a lot of games push 5-6gigs.

As for the difference between the cards out end of June and the cards from mid July, that's basically the difference between reference and aftermarket coolers.
Aftermarket is quieter, cooler, and allows for higher overclocking.

Well im using r9 290x 4GB. With upscaling to 1440p, i need to turn textures to medium and turn off msaa because of memory. Otherwise a can run almost everything perfectly on 4Gigs. Imo i would buy 8GB anyway. More memory is always better + better future proof. smile.gif

The memory usage depends mostly on the game developers, and whether they have optimized their code or not. As far as i have read, 4GB is enough for 1440p and for resolutions above it's more likely that you will run out of GPU sauce first, than reach the memory limit. 8GB should be more of a marketing thing in lower end GPUs/
