AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 117

post #1161 of 3674
I wonder what the average age of the posters in this thread is? Getting emotional over video cards, flinging insults, trolling (nvidia and AMD). I guess video cards have some intrinsic value I'm not seeing.

You can't be talking about me? I admit I was very hopeful for this card (and am pro-AMD generally just because we need good competition in the GPU market) but I think my comments have been pretty fair?

Nah. I just read a few of the pages and honestly, some posters (both sides of the aisle) just seem to troll each other. A person who is genuinely interested in this card won't be able to get factual information from this thread.

Yep it's a pity someone merely speculating some hypothetical numbers is accused of over hyping for no reason right?

I guess some people think that one thing is fine, whilst another isn't, that's fair I guess.

Your comments have been fine, you were the one trolled.

IF the spec rumors are true and the RX 470 has 2048 SP and is priced at $180 for the 8GB version, you should expect ~85-90% of the performance at 75% of the price.

I sold off my R9 290s and am going to be parting out the rest of my signature in the upcoming weeks. Going to try to build a small form factor passively cooled system this time around, see how that works out biggrin.gif

Is there any credible rumor on the 470 release date yet?
post #1168 of 3674
You nailed it earlier. If you are in the market for a $200 this is the one you want. Period. Though I would wait for the AIB's just to make sure you get your proper money's worth.

If you want top end performance you can't go wrong with the 1070 at $400 (if you can find one) or the 980Ti at $400 as well (which are readily available). I'd definitely get a pair of 980Ti Classified's right now if I were wanting to replace my Titans...

Everyone saying its not AMD's fault that the card was overhyped etc...

Somewhat true - but this could have been avoided if they allowed benchmarks prior to release... say 10 days prior to release like Nvidia did

The whole no benchmarks until release day is a really sketchy practice that I do not support
