It's price range will mean nothing when Nvidia obliterates it with the 1060.They are still winning with their 970 lol.
by the time the 1060 hits i suspect the amd drivers will have matured a little and it will bench higher then it does now

People forget just how important a node shrink is in terms of performance and just how badly AMD missed the mark.

less cores, far less power consumption, = improvements.

970..........mhm take the goggles off.

Of course, this same trolling happens on every AMD card release, then within a couple of months drivers and AIB cards significantly improve the card.

By then every man and his dog has already decided they are garbage though lol.

The Shills and pessimists have therefore succeeded.

Forgetting Nvidia. AMD was able to match a card with 2 x ROP, 2 x ACE, 2 x Memory Interface and with less CUs. I think P10 is impressive for price. You have to keep in mind Sub $200 cards are the worse when it comes to showing off the architecture/ process. I mean compare GTX 960 and GTX980. GTX960 is a terrible card.

Didn't realize 4 less CU's, half the rops, less TMU's, and lower bandwidth are the same specs. You could have fooled me redface.gif

I don't even know why I'm still posting, so many users have no clue what they're talking about. Deaf ears everywhere.

who thought is was a great idea to do this during a holiday season and new GPU release.
post #1089 of 3674
Anyone have any info on when the custom cards are due?

I have seen the three designs from MSI, Sapphire and Asus, but as far as I'm aware there is no ETA?


That sapphire cheese grater looks rather snappy in black biggrin.gif

The launch may not be perfect, but staying away from forums like OCN and just reading the reviews and watching videos, things seem quite positive...

I'd actually wager your average joe just asks his "tech savvy super smart e1337 gamer" friend for advice, and guess what he's gonna say 75% of the time?

But yes for the average joes who actually do read reviews, the 480 would at least leave a positive first impression. Like I said though, all it takes is one simple "dude I heard nVidia's gonna come out with like something awesome called the 1060 or something" to sway them. Which is why I said the best thing AMD can (and should) do right now is to release the floodgate on AIB cards and rack up as many positive reviews as possible before the 1060 onslaught.
