Microcenter branch in Overland Park Kansas revealed to a customer that they’re receiving a shipment of 100 RX 480 cards on the 28th of June. That’s exactly 25 times as many GTX 1080 cards the same branch had at launch, which was only four. We called the branch & confirmed.

I suppose they couldn't find a more remote location to sample from...

Isn't this bad news considering like 100x more people will buy a 200 dollar card than will buy a 700 dollar card.

Oh ye for sure, I would expect double sales atleast considering the size of the enthusiast market compared to the mid tier market.

I've saved enough for a 1080 but they just aren't easy to get and are way too costly.. I'm going to get a RX 480 and wait until the 1080ti or whatever comes out and the 1080 hopefully gets a price drop or has people selling them to upgrade.

I have a 780ti now and it's main drawback is lack of vram which causes me issues in some of my games at 1080p.. the RX480 is faster with DX12 support and 8GB vram and it will make a nice upgrade for the steambox later on.. not to mention probably costing about 1/4 the price of a 1080 here in Australia.

Many shops have already commented on being stocked well for the launch.

Good question! Let's go digging.

  1. Article linked is WCCF. That's never a good sign, sorry OP. frown.gif
  2. The article links to /u/sirbeers on reddit... who has deleted their account. Not helpful at all.
  3. The article follows that with a link to /r/AMD. Jackpot! That post reads:

They also confirmed for the 1080/1070 launch they only received 4/7 cards for that day. They are incredibly impressed how many cards they are expecting to receive for launch day.

Just FYI...

Edit: Added their launch quantity for 1080 units.

Which is... Not helpful in the slightest, really. It's pretty pointless to compare the two GPUs. One cost $700 at launch, and the other costs $200. Pretty big difference. The $200 tier, I believe, sees the highest sales volume of all GPUs out there (which is why AMD is targeting it among other reasons) which means they'll need more GPUs to satisfy a dramatically higher demand (golly!)

Yields are almost certainly better though. If I pull some numbers out of my butt, based on the estimated amount of stream processors (2304, about midway between a 7970 and R9 290 and their rebrands) we get a die that's about 380mm2 on 28nm. Based on the dimensions of a 14nm Samsung transistor compared to 28nm TSMC, we get 64nm x 78nm compared to 90nm x 118nm, or a shrinkage by about 53%. That puts this die somewhere around 200mm2. Has AMD given a number yet? I'm not sure. Either way, it's about 2/3 the size of GP104's roughly 300mm2.

Past that... I have no idea. There's some statistical modeling for yields, but getting solid numbers from companies will be nearly impossible for anything made in the past 20 if not 30 years. It appears however that there is an inverse relation, so we could assume that a 50% larger die will have 33% lower yields than another die. But Samsung's and TSMC's fabs are very different for starters, and there's so much that goes into this that it's impossible to know for sure. Anybody who works with any sort of lithography equipment, please speak up.

You underestimate how bad AMD's brand has gotten to this point. I know lots of people who just assume anything made by NVIDIA is just better and will dismiss the 480 as junk because its a $200 AMD card. More for us, I guess.
