I personally like watching closely as the smoke forms and my eyes leak tears of pain.

Personally, I have no interest in a $200 graphics card that barely beats my current one, not one that's an engineering failure like this one at least. If I were recommending or discussing a product, I would consider those things of course. I'm talking about the chip.

Yes the 480 is a good product, yes it's the best $230 card, but honestly, it barely manages to be. It made it there by the skin of its teeth as far as I'm concerned. That 970 is way too close for comfort. I think the 970 is given a bad rap. It's faster than overclocked 390X when pushed to its limits.

What relevance does the Polaris chip have with any other product than the 480/470? The high end stuff is not going to be Polaris at all. Polaris was designed specifically to bring great performance to the $200 segment while they work on the next high end chips and it does precisely that. Name one other product for $200 that is even in the same league as the 480?

Oh, and if you have no interest in a $200 video card then this product is simply not for you. Go spend twice as much on a 1070 and enjoy yourself. But realize that 80% of the market is keenly interested in a $200 card as powerful as this one...

All NV needs to do is slash prices on the 970 to $200 and you have a card that's almost strictly better than the 480. Also I edited my post to include an angry rant about why the 480 sucks.

I haven't spent any money yet.

970 is EOL, so it's not all that important to NV anymore. Besides, the 1060 is right around the corner and that's what will compete with the 480

Decent card for someone stuck with a GT 540 card or R7 360 or something. But for the rest its a huge meh card

Well 970 wasn't anywhere near 200$ range at its release. And now it is only comparable because it's nearly out of stock and merchants are clearing the stocks.

No one care less about cross fire, you're talking about average in your last posts, but average people do not crossfire, and AMD's target is cleary not you with this card.

Have some cake mate, chill out.

You have to understand that at this price, AMD is still getting a good margin, since it's the release price.
That's pretty good for them, and I'm cleary not sure NVIDIA could have released a 970 at this price and still have a margin.

You can't look at what other companies do, and take as a given that another company can at least do that much. That's no given here.

The only realistic approch you can have is to compare the card with previous AMD stuff. Yes there has been progress.

Yes compared to competition it's at 970 level in performance and consumption. But it's way better at price.

So it should help AMD gain market share with the average public (in which I clearly do not include you).

My point is that the RX 480 basically offers no resistance. If NV wished, they could stamp out its mark without even trying, using technology from almost 2 years ago. At least with the Fury X it managed to beat everything except the 980 Ti.

Of course the 1060 will crush it even more definitively than the 970 could.

Dude no just NO.

If nothing else that 3.5GB has effectively sealed 970's fate going forward.

970's are EOL and the 1070 replaced it, they're not slashing anything. It's all about pascal now. I guess you expected AMD to build a card as fast as a 1070 but only charge half as much as Nvidia?
