[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 77

Either way, I want some of that pie.

Yea.. I'm in a rock and a hard place now. It's pretty much a guarantee to beat my 290x (hopefully) while using less power, and creating less heat and noise. Doubling the vram helps, too. But can't decide if it's worth it as I'm at 4k.. Want to sell my 290x now before the 29th hits and selling prices get even worse but I'm not sure if the 480x is really going to pull enough ahead of an oc'ed 290x at my res to justify even $100.

An 8GB 480 will resell at most likely $50+ more than the 290X down the track, it will become severely obsolete with it's higher power draw and temperatures.

So really you'll probably only lose $50? As long as you sell before 290X prices plummet.

True, but I suspect the real cards worth buying are going to be $250 and up. Which is still a good price, but not sure a 4GB card is a good choice, especially if you want to get 2 of them. Plus the "beast" cards that supposedly overclock so well are likely to be even more than that.

The 480 will be significantly faster than a 290X, especially if we see that 1500-1600 MHz OC rumor come true. I would absolutely make the move if I were you considering how little it's likely to cost you.

All likely true. Would be much better if there were no 4GB cards at all (only 8GB reference for $200). Still getting at least one for sure to replace my 270X. Will be a massive upgrade for ~$100 or so...

If they make a ITX size version (which I'm sure they will), I'll at least get one for my HTPC. Maybe that'll scratch the itch until Vega.

The only rumor we have is 1500 mhz. Anybody claiming anything higher needs to calm down a bit. The rumor is it comes within spitting distance of a STOCK 1070 at 1500 mhz. If that is true it's already pretty awesome, let's not bloat our expectations here.

I just hate buying performance we already have - if I'm going to buy something new, I kind of want it to be better than what is available now. Unfortunately, it sounds like the 1080 is the only such product we are going to see this year. Getting tired of waiting.

People could buy that performance at what $350 -$400 today? or they can wait and buy it for $200, instead of $550 (think that's what 1070 is priced at, but not sure as I haven't even looked at it) and $700 to play the same games. If Nvidia does respond with price cuts, what would the price cuts look like? Any price cuts on the 1070s and 1080s would be inconsequential given the already anemic availability....

ToTR will use 8GB at 4K. I think even 1440p it does. Easy fix though. Just lower texture quality. Going from High to Ultra does not impact IQ nearly as much as the performance loss that you get.

It doesn't actually need that much. RoTR just takes as much VRAM as you have (or just about), even it it's unnecessary.
