As I've said before, 480 CF is for those willing to put up with CF issues to get 1080+ performance for less money.

Not necessarily. I was considering the 1080 but given Nvidias high (read: over) pricing I don't want to support them any longer. Same with Intel. Going to buy a custom 480 for sure, then Vega and Zen when they are out. Luckily these days I rarely use the PC for anything other than watching TV so it's an easy choice.

C'mon now, Google 'micro center' and the location. Boom, phone number for that location, address, hours of operation, and even what times they're busy. You really think they have no phones in the store?

Their loss if they want something in this price range they will be locked to old stuff for a while.

You can CF 2 and get more perf apparently, perhaps worth it with new games actually supporting multi card systems.

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

Yes, I remember someone writing it on one of the 480 threads that AMD were delaying to could be higher stocks at release, and it was repeated on reddit and other forums, and I guess it is now news...

According to AMD, on a single game they showed, AOTS, at 1080p. So take that performance with a grain of salt you will most likely be crashed by.
Also some DX12 games are still not supporting CFX or SLI, and some new DX11 games are released without CFX or SLI support

A chinese warehouse going by the scotch tape on the boxes. Every package I get from China is packaged like that.

I'll still need to see some reviews to be convinced.

True however it also said something about not even being fully loaded and capped or something like that.
Only for new games CF would be advisable and I doubt this card will be strong enough to play older games at very high settings on a single card. In terms of value it will be hard to beat I think.
