exactly.

$200 card, and all we saw was dx12 aots rolleyes.gif

people running oc'd 970s/390s certainly should not blindly believe amd's hype, they might end up getting less fps in games they're playing.

Has nothing to do with blindly believing anything. 970/390 users shouldn't be looking at this GPU, it would be a side grade at best. This is meant for 960/380 users and below who are the masses without disposable cash to spend on a $600 GPU that was gouged up to $1200 and STILL in short supply. (Even the used prices for 970/980's is ridiculous, people think they deserve 75-90% of original cost for something that is 1-2 years old now). The rumor is retailers are getting 4-5 times the stock that nvidia gave them with the 1080, so AMD is setting a market strategy that isn't focused on beating nvidia with top performance but rather try to even it out with units sold and installed. Remember one of the big marketing speeches with the 480 is VR. If VR takes off and becomes popular then that will help the 480 even more. Don't forget about CF also, love it or hate thinks its great or not doesn't matter. Some users WANT multiple GPU's for whatever their personal reasons, and getting CF that can compete with a 980/1070 (hopefully) for under $400 is pretty amazing.

Of course all of this could be squashed on review day, we'll see...

I will likely purchase a 2nd RX480, so I can do crossfire reviews, unless a AIB sends me another card. I was lucky enough to get one RX-480 for review purposes, but given my web pages size currently getting review samples can be challenging.

I will grab a few more RX 460 on launch day to put in my HTPCs though, since it supports all the hevc decode stuff I want, has HDR support, HDMI 2.0, etc.

I agree, Even at its worst it should be a good upgrade over previous $200 cards.

Would it be a worthy upgrade over the r9 290?

If you think your R9 290 is too hot and sell it after you buy the RX 480 to recoup some of the cost, maybe. Otherwise probably not worth it, but should obviously wait for reviews before you make up your mind.

Nah, unless your 290 can't do 1200 core maybe. I am getting one to replace my 7950 but, now i am thinking 2 'cause they are cheap. my 290s have quickdisconnects. so it is easy to swap and play with these things. I'll wait for aibs.

I'm personally dazzled by the performance per dollar. I could care less if it can meet, greet, or beat a 1080 or whatever. If it's anywhere close the performance that AMD is touting it is a home run in the mid-class economy GPU market.

Nada. Waiting on reviews first and then buying. It will be my next card. Then will wait 6ish months for it on the used market and buy another for cross fire.
