All the NDA drivers might even be special builds to track which copy was sent to whom.

When the 480 launches in a few hours, AMD releases the driver to the public.

Then, is it definitely safe to assume that we're having an avalanche of reviews in a few hours?

I'd rather pay the extra and get a 480 over a 970, even if it meant $30 US on top.

Each to their own though cheers.gif

I won't argue that, I just hate how retailers position the markup over msrp. It reminds me of car dealer tactics. I'm not one to pay any sort of "market adjustment fees"

Uhm, how much will you pay to get 4.5 GB extra?

Can't believe some people are complaining that AMD's $200 card offers same performance as Nvidia's $550 GTX980.Some people can never be convinced no matter what.Even if RX480 was priced at $99 am sure some people would also find things to complain about that.

well idk about US (lol Murika), but locally here new 980 now go for ~370-375+ EUR

and its a 2016 14nm card vs a 28nm 2014 card


but yeah the price ensures good value no matter what

Less power consumption
Extra 4.5GB Vram
Superior DX12 performance
Faster out of the box + overclocked (performance pending official reviews with proper driver of course)
Future driver support

I'd pay probably +$50 for an AIB card?

This post on reddit cracked me up biggrin.gif

I will always buy Nvidia™ because I only play games The Way It's Meant to be Played™. Nvidia also pioneers innovative new technologies like PhysX™, Gameworks™ and the highest quality driver to ever grace Windows. When I boot up with a brand new Nvidia™ Geforce™, I can experience the game just like it's meant to be played. Nvidia™ also delivers a far more silkysmooth experience. Nvidia Geforce™ is also very power efficient. A graphic card is the most power hungry device in your house. Refrigerators, air conditioners, water heaters, dish washers, lights, etc all use significantly less power than a graphic card. Which is why Nvidia™ puts gamers first by ensuring that their gaming experience is of the highest quality while looking out for gamers by giving them the most value in their electrical bill. At this point in time, there's really no reason to consider an AMD graphic card at all. I tried one one time, it caused so much heat that it exploded. It also consumed so much power that it gave off an EMP and destroyed the rest of my computer. Nvidia™ also pioneered how useless GPGPU is with CUDA™. Years ago, everyone thought GPGPU, CUDA™, and OpenCL were the future. Now, Nvidia™ has removed those useless features from their GPUs and increased efficiency. Now you can save thousands a year in electricity thanks to Nvidia™ ensuring that useless features like GPGPU are "optimized" for gamers. It's quite clear that OP's an AMD shill trying to convince you to settle on something less than The Way It's Mean to be Played™. Nvidia™ is the only real way to play games. We have seen recently that they offer incredible libraries for software developers like Nvidia Gameworks. He is probably too poor to afford the Nvidia Geforce Experience and can not afford to play any games The Way It's Mean To be Played™. Don't be a poor gamer with bad drivers and a huge power bill. Play games with the Geforce™ Experience™: The Way It's Mean To Be Played™
