I also doubt 200$/230$ card buyers are going to put a lot of money any time soon for HDR monitors, or vulkan is going to break the DX11 market any time soon.

If the leaks are right then the AIB 480 could be inbetween fury and fury x level , especially where the boost clocks are hovering now ~ 1200 mhz on the ref cards (not oc).

Wouldn't be surprised if 8 pin or dual 6 pin variants are hitting 1500 MHz regularly... with proper cooling of course.

VAT is 19-21% in most places, not that much variance, if you think the difference is too large you can always order from another country. Shipping rates are usually comparable to ordering something from your own country either way.

230e + VAT(23%) here where im at straight up from supplier chain. + few % so shops can be in positive. So ~260-270 euros for Asus 8gb version here.

So the 8gb card will be a shade faster especially into 1440p+.

The reviewers got an 8 ghz 8gb card with 2 bioses they could use to slow the ram and disable 4gb of it to test 4gb or 8gb configuration.

Not really buying that underclocked cards review. We have seen shady businesses before about cherry picked cards and shady bios from both AMD and Nvidia.
I prefer to see a stock 4GB version from the box.
Just the difference in memory speed is going to make the 200$ at least a good few % less performer even at 1080p.

Its the same PCB and GPU, what is going to change overclocks when you are only seeing 5-10%?

I think we are going to see the most neccessary AIB cards since the days of the AIB 290x come to market shortly . To get rid of noise and really open up the OC potential massively.

For that bit extra its going to be a world different IMHO.

I hate to say it but the ref card is really only good for people who want a small bit of OC play , nothing serious. Infact its most likely best if they are not overclockers that buy the ref version.

Well even 7 ghz chips can be overclocked , i would think to near 8 ghz levels . So in the end it just limits the oc range really.

Bummer. As you can see in the listing the 4GB version is being sold at pretty much MSRP - only $3 over $199.

12% memory clock difference at this performance level isnt going to yield a 12% performance drop at 1080P. Perhaps 2-4%.

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.

If there is a bencher in you . . . go with the 980 Ti. You might get a good clocker. Even an oc'ed 1080 can't beat a good clocking 980Ti.

Unless you are worried it be falling off nVidia's driver radar. The 1070 and up are the only upgrade from Hawaii. The 480 is a replacement for the Tonga.
