By that logic every single mainstream card is a failure because enthusiasts had that performance for many years ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yup, power consumption sucks on the RX480. But it seems like Polaris was designed to be a mobile architecture (via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24rFeHo1S-o), RX470 should have better efficiency.

In AotS. But cf/sli sucks anyway when half the games don't properly support it and that slide about 480cf was worthless honestly. If anything I'd say the 480 cf presentation was a failure. I wish both AMD and NVidia put more effort into multi gpu.

480 is probably more future proof.

It's a failure because people kept overhyping the card? There were tons of leaks showing performance between 970 and 980, that's what they delivered.

I'll say it all again, not sure why I have to.............

It wins 4 out of 5 games OC'd in that German review. 1350mhz vs 1380mhz 970

here it is AGAIN.....................

http://www.pcgameshardware.de/AMD-Radeon-Grafikkarte-255597/Specials/RX-480-Test-1199839/2/

SCROLL DOWN FOR OC RESULTS, PICK EACH GAME TO SEE RESULTS. USE MOUSE TO DO SO>

And I never said it destroys a 970, don't put words in my mouth lol it's immature. (There is one game where it destroys but that is in Hitman so meh)

The ONLY game the 970 WINS is FALLOUT 4.

That GTX970 is running at 1380/7200, that nowhere near the average overclock which is more like 1475/8000, so the GTX970 FPS should increase by 7%-10%.

Been generous that 7% to 1475 , be unlikely to gain that in FPS increase too.

The reports of the AIB RX480s clocking 1480-1600 (from HardOCP info) are 23% - 33% above the clock speed the ref card maintains ~ 1200mhz according to the ComputerBase . So its goodnight nurse for pretty much ANY 970 OC vs an AIB 480.

If anything the 480 will improve its position quite a lot , i think it could be Fury or better level on the AIBs. Looking forward to the reviews.

The truth is that it is easier to refer to the price on the US side. Mainly because the price in europe isn't wildly as listed, and in many countries the price can vary because a bit different VATs or different taxes as well. redface.gif

Also the difference between a 4GB 480 and 8GB 480 is, well... VRAM, and the frequencies at which these modules work, they're basically the same memory so the 4GB version should clock to the same speed of the 8GB version and you'd essentially have no other difference between these two cards.

Also AIBs for the 199$ RX 480 are unlikely to go past 239$, I can see 269$ for the 8GB version, 299$ should be some crazy/stupid Lightning-Esque card.

VRAM matters. We also have no idea what the OC headroom of the 4GB will be. Everyone are yelling "200$! 200$!" based on a 230$ card performance. Also "unlikely", is that crystal ball talk or knowledge talk? Because no pricing for a 480 AIB has been really out yet. And I really doubt they will be just 10$ over the 8GB version.

That's my concern. They'll be priced so high as to compete with the, presumably, better performing GTX 1060.

I'm sorry to see it's performing worse than my old 290 X.

I think I'll get a GTX 1070 from nVidia this round.

I switched to AMD with the 7970 and followed up with the 290 X and was hoping to do the same now since I have a Freesync monitor but the way things are going it would seem that AMDs future best card (Vega or whatever it will be called) would bring about GTX 1070 performance at best. And that in a few months to half a year's time later.

OC headroom is the same as the 8GB cards. There are some reviews out in the wild for the 4GB cards.

2. Stop with the rumors. No pricing has been announced, you're just making up numbers. Even still, at your rumored $300 price, a 1500MHz 480 (gotta love them rumors!!!) will still be $150 less than a reference 1070; that's 50% more. Oh, and 1070 = 2 times, 1080 = 3 times.

1. Says who there is no difference? Can you give me a 4GB version review? You keep taking about the 200$ price tag. So were are the performance benchmarks? Where? Why are they absent?

2. 300$ vs 400$ MSPR once stocks stable?
Also learn god damn math! 2 times 300$ is 600$, which is more than 450$ you stated. 300$ times 3 is 900$, more than the price of the 1080. So please, go do your math, and stop making stuff up to suit, including math.

The stupidity in this thread. Oh my.

The card is delivering exactly what it should, on the pricepoint where it should be.
If you look at the last 3 generations of AMD cards before the RX480, you had the 380(x), 270x / 280(really late though), and the 7850.

If you compare each of them to the previous generation higher end counterpart, is this card really that much of a letdown?

I think not.

It's going to compete with the 1060 when it comes out, and knowing Nvidia that will have 970+ performance levels, it'll all come down to optimisations and future dx12 results.
Will the 1060 be the better card in the future? Who knows, but for now, there's only one option, and that's the RX480.

Unless you want a last-gen card, you can buy a 970, or a 390 But in my country the cheapest 4gb 970 is 270 euro's, 390 is about 280(and many are still around the 300 mark), while the 4gb rx480 is only 220. 8Gb RX480 is currently around 270 also.
