The one thing I will say, it doesn't look like AMD has caught up to Nvidia on perf/w. They've definitely made improvements, but not enough to equal the 10 series in efficiency.

This won't matter too much for the higher-end, but once Nvidia released their lower-end parts, AMD will have a hard time convincing apple and other laptop manufacturers to keep using polaris, that is unless they can get a P11/Zen APU sooner rather than later
There is also the possibility that the leaker got a bum card. Silicon lottery can bite hard if you are unlucky.

Mobile I think AMD wont do well in initially. When they manage to get zen APUs out will be where polaris shines in mobile. Midrange they will probably do well, the m480, if it is based on full polaris 11, would be a good alternative for people who dont need super large amounts of power in a laptop. I'm thinking things like the mid range alienware 15r3 and such.

High end will pretty much belong to nvidia again, until AMD has something to fight the 1080.

If there are limits, they're in bios. Six pin would do just fine.

Technically its not the 6pin connection limiting the OC, its power limiting in the driver/BIOS. You can exceed the PCIe spec by 10-20% with relative safety.

it looks like Polaris is around Maxwell in terms of perf/watt. That doesn't bode well, given the fact that it's 14nm vs 28nm.

I haven't tried the other two, but SOM stutters are fixed.

If they have to do a special fix for particular games then that doesn't bode well for the future of the 970.

Here is why this card is no good guys,

By the time this card comes out and 1070 comes out, you can probably expect 980's to be at max $300, most likely in the 275 range.

At that time this card is just where it belongs in the price range, completely short of expectations.


A few days ago, you can get a 980 ti aftermarket for $350, soon you can proly get it for <$300 used.

Why would anyone choose AMD in this case?


Any people whos going to buy mid range will most likely buy in the $300 range anyway because performance is still linear at this stage.

No, the card is right where the expectations put it, 970/980 terrritory. If you based your expectations on a bunch of fanbois, then of course the card wont measure up. AMD never said this thing was above the 980.

Also, the 1070 has been out for a week and a half. Where are all those $275 980s?

I would agree, but the fix could be for the other games as well? Time will tell...

Not to mention the 980 is at EOL, and will likely see relative performance degradations from here on out. If the past is any indication, the 480s performance will improve for a while due to driver updates.
