[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Hits US Stores, Supply 25x Larger Than GTX 1080 At Launch - Page 4

I asked a serious question and got some snide sent my way, so I responded in kind is all.

I suspect that a lot of people like me are going to get a 480 just because it's only $200 and it will be a fun little card to play around with.

Because I have a 980 now and I could put a 480x in there with more Vram and throw my 980 in my old rig and sell it for more. Also it's really hard to use a 1080 when you literally cannot buy one.

That's totally fair. I just figured if somebody was in the market for a 1080, they were looking for that level of performance, and a 480 just isn't in that performance segment.

Any announced CF limits like NVidia did? 2 cards max etc, for the RX480?

I hope for AMD that's true.
If you play the mainstream cards only and have no stock to fill the market, it would be a big problem.

Nothing specifically thus far, so the assumption is status quo.

Yeah, Kansas City metro is pretty remote. (Went to warped tour there a few years ago, good times)

It has gotten bad but they're making moves in the right direction. I get a completely different vibe from them now and I think it's catching on. Bad thing is that it takes no time at all to fall to the bottom, but it's a steep climb back up
