I apologize for not reading more carefully. Obviously I'm being hurt by confirmation bias. You can have the win.

Yes! I beat you! This is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAR.

But back to reality I will go now. The 970 and 480 present great performance at 1080p (even at 1440p for people willing to sacrifice some settings)

There's really no reason to buy a 970 though with that gimped Vram.

It is still a good card for the price. However my biggest worry looking at the numbers is VEGA.

Will it be hot, power hungry and slow?

Thought everyone blacklisted Kyle for being salty for not getting invited and all that and all the things he said about the 480 being low tier and not what everyone expected.

Suddenly because he says with a lot of luck you might get a card that OCs to ~1600 he isnt a salty basher?

/sigh people on these boards have shorter memories than football fans....

My personal opinion? Its a good product for its price. However it didnt deliver based on they hype they promised. Its still though the best card tou can buy for its MSRP price however the MSRP is not applied in EU.

239 USD should convert to GBP 178 and EUR 215. Add in abou 20% VAT tax it should be GBP 214 an EUR 258.

UK prices are close enough with 219 on the sapphire while the rest are 229-239 (basicly a 1:1 covrsion).

EU ones are all over the place. Computeruniverse for example has most brands at 289 with the exception of powercolor and xfx at 269. So not even 1:1.

All AMD cards are at release.



Then drivers come of age, suddenly power/performance looks better. Custom coolers fix heat problems.

But yes I imagine Vega won't compete with nvidia's top card the 1080ti, maybe the 1080 though.

Sadly I can't imagine Vega featuring great perf/watt ratio.
But who knows...

I think we are going to have to crown 1080Ti the King in the North of 2017

Would you mind linking me to the source of that graphic?
I've been trying to find that kind of info.

Many thanks for that. THIS chart is the main reason I just don't want to go Nvidia.

Nvidia is grand if you upgrade every year, end of this year will be 3 years with current cards.
