Maybe it won't on newer games, but I don't really play any of the new stuff. So don't feel entitled that the 8gb version of the card is $230. The 4gb version is a valid option for a lot of people and the price AMD gave was fair.

the biggest proof are the Fury cards, 4GB of HBM and they recommend the cards for 4K content. thumb.gif

Going for 8gb will also give you the higher memory options in games if you end up crossfire with another card. This could be the option if your driving a 1440p or higher FreeSync monitor.

When I see people complaining about $199 for an above-average GPU I start to wonder if there is any hope for humanity left. You can't even buy a worth while CPU or motherboard for $199 more often than not.

Edit: Also, everyone considering buying an RX 480 please do yourself a favor and spend the extra $30 for the extra 4GB of RAM. For only an extra $30 you would be making a mistake not to jump for it.

Yeah also everybody was expecting the price to start at 300$ even for 390x performance.
AMD surprised a lot of people with the 200$ pricing.
200$ is the price suggested by trolls/AMD haters on WCCF tech, of course after the price was confirmed by AMD they started to say that even that is too high thus confirming their status as troll even more.

What I'm really curious about is how much overclocking you can get with just one power-pin connector on the stock cards. I'm guessing 1400-1450 max but maybe there's room for more. I don't feel like going for AIO myself until the 490's come out (hopefully at an accurate street price of $350 or so).

Unless you're really tight budget why not spend the extra 30$? The 4gb version will absolutely be fine though, just IF it's only 30$ I see no reason to not double my VRam. I'm really hoping for 1400mhz+ oc but I'm not holding my breath just yet.

You know how some keep insisting that AMDs marketing is bad but they can't give specific examples for this last month or two.
The FF edition thing is clearly part of nvidia's marketing, so if we compare marketing at the price level(because the price is one of marketing's essential components) AMD pleasantly surprised a lot of people while Nvidia did the opposite.

You know what I meant.
Those 4gb are not free.

winner budget card thumb.gif


so i guess reference 480 8GB = $230
AIB cooler 8GB (same 6-pin) = $250-260
extra power pin "beast mode" AIB 8GB = $280-300 (Europe prices are anyones guess) .. and the custom ones will probably come after the reference ones, not at 29-th

6-pin OCs to 1400-1450, extra power OCs up to 1600+

I'm still a bit sceptical of those OC claims. If a large proportion of Polaris 10 dies can reach 1.5Ghz on air cooling, why doesn't AMD introduce that as separate SKU?

A $300 'RX480XT' which performs 10% below a GTX 1070 would sell and review well. AIB OC models won't get the same sort of attention an official SKU would.

maybe they dont want to get into a slugging match with 1070 and would rather focus fully on the $200-250 (and below) market while letting Nvidia have the $300-350+ for now
