To be fair though that MSI board does have the barrels of the gatling gun on the top heatink. They probably didnt want people bring them to school and hurting each other so they left the receiver off.

On a more serious note, I'd be embarrassed to have those MSi and Gigabyte boards in my case.

I like the green and black scheme but they took it too far. Hell I hated buying the MSI Krait i have coming because of the cheesy ass snake but it was the cheapest z97 board I could find.

If crossfire worked well I'd ditch Nvidia immediately and go for 2 of these instead. Flounders edition nonsense, 970 vram nonsense and half of the titan cards being trash have left me wanting another option for high end gaming.

http://www.amd.com/en-us/press-releases/Pages/e3-sneak-peek-2016jun13.aspx

Why have they worded it like that when there has to be something else on the top?

Because they are doing the exact opposite of Nvidia this time around and launching their new slate of cards from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. The mainstream stuff comes first and then later they will release the higher end SKU's (but yes, the 480 will be the fastest card released for the summer). I expect to see a Polaris 12 release as the RX 490 by the end of the year or so and then Vega to drop next year as the new Fury line (if they maintain that naming scheme). The important point, however, is that all of these cards will be the same generation so the actual flagship won't arrive until the end of the release schedule.

A new 980 is still selling for $450, the 290X is now par and has consistently been under $300 for over a year (or beyond) and the 290 touched $200 a few times. So yeah, 980 performance and 4gb's of vram for 200 bucks seems reasonable and on time at this point, it actually almost seems a little late given the prices for the 290 and 290x have been so much lower for such a long time. Hell it was $500 vs. $275 (980/290X) around April of last year - and let's not talk about used prices.

I suppose it is irrelevant that the $200 480 uses less than half the power and will likely OC way more than the 290 (not to mention just being an overall more powerful card to begin with)? Also, what was the 290 price on release? Its not relevant what the card goes for now, 3 years after release...

Wouldn't it be Polaris 9 seeing as how Polaris 10 > 11, at least in AMD's mind, so one can assume Polaris 9 > 10 > 11 > 12 tongue.gif

Nope, the number after Polaris simply refers to when it is released. Polaris 10 first, then Polaris 11, then a possible Polaris 12, 13, 14, etc...

not to break the flow but from some sources the 480 performance is only around the 390x perf, but at least it OC like a beast, easy 1500mhz on blower
