If the RX 480 has more headroom, it's yet to be shown as far as I can tell, and I don't know what kind of power it draws at that level either.

The literal day of the NDA and you think that's the end of the story for the 480? No AIB cards? No results from decent OCers here on OCN? Just the typical useless day one reviews (who barely OC cards anyway) and it's all already decided, eh? Ok then... rolleyes.gif

Rx470 would need to be twice more efficient than rx480 turned out to be to actually fit that slide.

Does anyone of you really bevieve that would be the case?

Also, this GPU-Z is fishy, it does not identify GPU or revision.

Nvidia wins power consumption, acknowledged.

Yeah I would take those pics with a grain of salt at this point, they are not official reviews obviously.

I see I'm still not getting my point across.
AMD cards are overpriced in Europe, relative to Nvidia cards. AMD might not be able to do anything about it, but it doesn't even enter the mind of an average buyer.
its really not...
970 is EOL running on fumes
remind again did you saw any reasonable priced 970 at the first week of its launch anywere in this planet? no ofc not it was always overpriced and even after the fiasco of the memory it never dropped down

But I'm curious as to what other arguments have been crushed?

All I've gotten is 'wait for games where the 480 wins' so far. What I haven't seen is verifiable results that an OC'ed 480 wins or rivals an OC'ed 970 on average, the RX 480 is unaffected by DX11 overhead present in older AMD cards, that it can compete with the efficiency of an OC'ed 970.

Where is all this?

So here's the thing: 970 was a "virtual launch" with no reference card available until much later, and even then it remained a BestBuy or OEM exclusive. All were AIB cards with custom coolers at least. So if we really wanted an apples to apples OC vs OC comparison, we'll just have to wait and see what AIB 480s will do.

Nah, it's believable enough. Also, considering AMD_Robert's recent post... I am afraid AMD blatantly cheated with power efficiency figures.

We would also have to concede with the fact that contrary to AMD's/GF's early slides, Polaris has ridiculous silicon lottery going on.

Nope, they are not.
480: $239 MSRP and 269€
1070 FE: $449 MSRP and ~480€
Customs: $379 MSRP and ~470€

No, no, no, it's the first day of launch with no AIB cards and the 480 is a fail forever (even though nothing in its segment even comes close)! "Don't wait for the (AIB) translation, answer me now!!!!" biggrin.gif

Multiple reviewers report potential problem with Radeon RX 480 graphics cards, which draw too much power from PCI-Express slot.

I would avoid this product until we know everything about this very serious fault. People who can only afford $199 GPU probably don't want to put their motherboard in any sort of danger. We need to spread awareness.

Ha ha oh gosh. Oh well it's not as bad as 3.5gate.

I don't care too much but that's just me, can understand others being worried.

I'll double my fps and use about the same power anyway from my 7900 series.

I'm not talking about 970. For the umpteenth time - AMD prices are skewed in EU so the whole "price/performance king" "$199/$239 card" argument is moot to us.

(ASUS card was more expensive here, picked the cheapest one)

Do you see the relative increase in price for each card?
