On the subject of Blizzard they had sent a team to work on Vulkan development so i am expecting in the near future Vulkan to be implemented in Overwatch and possibly in other Blizzard titles. And that would mean much for AMD hardware & Blizzard games if i am not wrong

That's how you do it. Consider the game you'll play. Getting this for BF1. Driver should be out at release. If not, AMD will be making the same mistake they did with Hawaii.

I'd get the 980 over the 970, though.

That would be great its basically the only reason ive not considered AMD in the past few years. I kid you not a gtx 760 pulls more FPS in WoW than a 290x right now. In the overwatch leaked video i saw the 480 was pulling around 105 fps on ultra preset, a 970 gets upwards of 130 FPS...

I will never use a AMD card again but for my little sister and wife's rig this card will be great. My little sister is bumming one of my GTX 980ti Classifieds until these come in stock and I would really like it back.

The 480 stock is a bit faster than my 290. With two of these cards or an equivalent of single powerful card, then yah, an i7 might help in multi-core games. Two 480s might go faster than these 290s in crossfire . . .

one place online in Au $419 others around $450 or so .
At over $399 my interest vanishes !
So I doubt I will be buying one at all !

Just saying. The only way you'd see the difference is when the cpu run out of cores . . .
