That was my point. Even speculating that which seems very unlikely adds to the hype.

But yes, I do agree scaling is very good, especially for DX12 games. For the price its a good card. If I was in the market for a $200 card, this would definitely be on the top of the list.

So people aren't allowed to speculate based on news allegedly directly from the AIB's now?

Jeez. We better do as you say in case people get on another hype train.

I seriously doubt that the 480 will OC to like 1500+. Will AIBs overclock much better than on reference? Yes, but GCN based architectures tend to increase in power consumption a lot once you start to venture out of the range where most cards operate at. The heat density of Polaris will be its undoing with overclocking.

Can we all just stop speculating? The more we hype it up, the more we set ourselves up for disappointment. I hyped Fury X to the moon (in my head, not publicly) and I was soooooooooooooooooo let down by its actual performance. So I've learned my lesson and only "believe it when I see it" now.

The RX 470 might be a better option.

I really believe you need to chill out. It's a video card. Why are you so emotionally invested?

But if they take it as fact, it's their problem.

I'm speculating because I'm optimistic, but not expecting. There is a massive difference.

I'm one of the few people actually buying the card, this is what I find funny about these threads.

And frankly, I don't think the price is all that great. A couple weeks ago there was a GTX970 on Newegg for $225. When the fire sale starts shortly, there will be 970s for <$200 all day long. I'd take a good AIB GTX 970 for 20% lower price over a reference RX480 any day of the week. Max OC to max OC, the 970 will stomp the 480 across the board.
It really is a matter of expectations. The power consumption I agree with you. But the rest of what you say is a bunch of FUD. Nvidia realeased the 960 about 1.5 years ago at a price of 199. This 480 absolutely blows the 960 out of the water and the 470 will also at a lower price point. You have a right to your opinion but I would never purchase a 970 at this point. DX12 performance is well behind compared to 480. Less VRam and you do know that there was that issue about 3.5 vs 4 . The 480 also has improved dx11 as we see in witcher 3. The 480 will be supported by driver updates going forward I don't think you can makle that claim about the 970. What you are advising is throwing good money to old technology not very sound advice.

How much of the efficiency deficiency can be attributed to process? We knew tsmc 16nm was slightly more efficient on a small scale, how would that translate on a larger die?
I know they were based on tonga, but this time it's a major overhaul ffs, it should at least perform same as gcn 3 on perf/tflops. but it's the opposite.


what happened to 15% more perf/cu ? is that without frequency increase or what ? they need to forward not backwards lol.

14nm glofo seems to be the issue here, since it's not even have same density as 16nm, even though it should be more.

I want as much as an upgrade as I can get for that PC so that I can game on it as well as I can on my main rig but I don't want to spend too much. The 470 would be a good, cheap option that would definitely be an upgrade. But the 480 would be even better (potentially a lot better if AIB's OC worth a damn) and still not break the bank...
