So we've got a $300 6-8-pin card that overclocked may come close to the likes of the cheapest $380 1070s, running a single 8-pin and auto fan with +80 degrees.

The additional 8pin does not make 480 less efficient, it eases overclock and adds additional value. The corresponding premium variant of GTX 1070 will have 2x8pin, but will prob. cost way above $380 (maybe close to $500).
As magnek pointed, the value aspect is there.

I don't know what you call revolution. The big "revolution" in 1070 and 1080 is the 16nm.

Are you trying to justify buying 2x 1070 FE (?!) to yourself (if you did that), or what is the deal here?

So what would be revolutionary? Matching 1080 performance for $200? I mean we can all dream but you gotta be realistic sometimes.

Hey guys,

Do you think it is worth to sell my 390x for around 280-300 EURO and get a RX 480 instead? I want to do it before the prices drop after the RX 480 is released.
I have a HX650 gold PSU and I should be able to crossfire a RX 480 down the line without upgrading my PSU.
I wonder if I should get the 6+8 pin version of the 480, these overclocks seems ridiculous and seems legit enough for me to sell my 390x. I got a backup 7850 I can use in the meantime. ^_^
I have a 6600k @4.6 GHZ that only consume around 60 watt of power on load.

Plus if the 1080 is any indication, the absolute cheapest 1070 with the junkiest of coolers will probably still cost $389, so the value aspect of RX480 is certainly still there.

price difference will be around 200euro between a 480/1070 here where I live.
Basically half the cost for the 480 vs the 1070.

So you are comparing card with custom PCB + custom cooler to a reference card which is still 80$ more(but in reality you still can not get 1070 anywhere at that price if at all) and consider that fair and a good deal?

How about we talk about this when the premium 1070 hit the stores, so we see where the REAL price land and so we don't have to compare vapoware with dreamland prices, ok? thumb.gif

R9 390x is a stretched 290x, you don't have much overclock headroom.

Meanwhile, RX 480 is an underclocked card sold at lower price, you have more headroom to play with. The more you invest into custom cards, the better clock you have. 390x to an 6+8pin 480 is definitely a good upgrade thumb.gif
