Most AIB factory OC 970s aren't in the 980 performance and they can be 10-15% slower than a stock 980.
So don't count on it being even close to a 980 performance if that is the case. Also it is slightly lower than the 970 OC by about 7-8% (most likely better at DX12 but not in DX11), so it might also really depends on driver performance on DX11.
And since a 970s can usually be OCed for another 10% performance, and if the rumours are true that you can't really OC the basic 480, I would not expect high performance out of the 480s. Especially at the 980 or 390x performance. That is way to optimistic for AMD.
Are you serious? You have the second post
in this thread and you don't even know the basic answers? Either you're trolling or you're being deliberately forgetful. Either way:
It's a Zotac 970 AMP! Omega card, which is about 10% away from a stock 980 from what I could gather. Then on top of that they also manually OC'd it. Obviously we have no idea how much they OC'd the 970 by, but assuming it's another 10%, that would put it at stock 980 performance. So at a bare minimum and taking these results at face value, a reference 480 is equal to an AIB 970, or right in between 970 and 980 performance.
