In appears to be near official confirmation, AMD Poland has revealed that the 8GB version will have an MSRP of $229 USD.




What do you guys think? Is the extra 4GB worth it for $30 more? I was hoping it would be $220 but I guess they didn't want to cannibalize the 4GB sales.

Yes, Im willing to bet in a year or so AAA titles will be passing 4GB. Plus the 8GB gives better performance at least in synthetic benchmarks.

Hmm.... Ok AMD now you release prices after you get a market idea of what people will pay for it?

What ever happend to setting the price and then let the market decide wither its worth buying or not, this age of preorders/preselling is so silly on the corporate side.

AMD had to squeeze that extra $30 out of the consumer because they know.

Oh come on, everyone knew the 8GB would be more, 199 was the minimum price tag, of course a card with more ram is going to cost more....

Greedy EVGA, how dare they charge more for more ram....

Price is fine as long as it performs well above the 390 (+20%). Will be interesting to see how much the non reference editions will cost however. Probably 250-260 for the good aftermarket editions from Sapphire and MSI ?

I don't understand what is the problem with $230? That is only about 15% more in comparison to 4gb model. I was actually thinking 8gb model would be $250.

You don't have to buy the 8GB version, just like you don't have to buy the Founder's Edition of the 1080.

I was expecting it to be $249.99. $229 is perfectly fine. You should be complaining about Nvidia charging $60-100 over MRSP for a reference 'blower' cooler with an sub-par phase setup.

I could agree if this was a video "game" but anyone who thought that 100% more vram would not cost more is simply unrealistic. It's not like they are charging $80-$100 more because, you know, reference.
AFAIK there have not been any rx480 up for pre-order. NA anyway.
