So at this point your AIB choice really is going to be more about the aesthetics.

Are you in the right thread, mate.

Gave me a chuckle.

That is a very, very small part of the market though. "Mainstream" products are called that for a reason. Whoever owns the mainstream market, owns the greatest money maker.

Number one: I'm not comparing it directly to a 290. I think it's safe to say that it's probably beyond 290 performance which is why I am proposing it's performance is closer to a 290X or a 980.

Power usage isn't really relevant to everyone. I'm not saying that's it's an invalid metric, it absolutely is to a lot of people, people with small power supplies, HTPC's ect. Though I will maintain that the actual effect which is seen on a power bill for the average Joe gamer isn't really notable but that's a completely different discussion.

I'm also not saying that this card isn't going to be a great card, GCN 4.0 will have some much needed features.

It is relevant if it's technology is still relevant and useful and if it falls within the same price to performance segment (which it does). It's a silly to think that AMD has offered (what should be) comparable performance to the 480 for a little around $75 more for over a year and a half. Forget what NVIDIA offers...

You flew by my main point, the 480 is on time and on price.

Power efficiency is about much more than just your power bill. A lower wattage GPU usually has much higher OC potential. Think of the 480 as a more powerful stock 290 that has the potential to OC 300-400 MHz higher, while still using half the power. And all that for $200, or half the 290's release price. This card is effectively a Pitcairn successor (or possibly Tonga) after all, not Hawaii or Grenada. Don't worry, AMD will still be releasing a 490 that absolutely crushes the 290X/390X later on. They are just starting with the mid-range stuff...

Also puts out less heat, is quieter, and (in theory) less reliant on watercooling to hit high OCs.

At ~230mm^2, Polaris 10 is most definitely a Pitcairn successor. Tonga is within 10mm^2 of Tahiti, and both are >50% bigger than Pitcairn and P10.

For reference:
? ~100mm^2 - estimated Polaris 11 ?
123mm^2 - Cape Verde
160mm^2 - Bonaire
212mm^2 - Pitcairn
~230mm^2 - Polaris 10
352mm^2 - Tahiti
359mm^2 - Tonga
438mm^2 - Hawaii
596mm^2 - Fiji

Yes the high end market is a small one compared to the mid and low markets. No one said otherwise.

But it also the one which buys the cards the fastest when they are out.
The 1080 and 1070 are flying off the shelves. Just like the titans were very hard to come by because they sold so quickly, or the 980 TI, or the fury X. Those markets have very high early adoptation strength.

There has to actually be stock for them to "fly off the shelves".

Hey, they flew off the shelves in record time! :2coolsmil
