AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 16

post #151 of 3674
Well, these initial reviews are disappointing. It's hot, it's slow, it chugs power (relatively speaking), and it's not at a great price point up here.

I think I'm going to wait for Vega, or maybe grab an Nvidia card if they do a solid for once and lower their pricing significantly.

Why anyone thought that the 480 would beat a 390x is beyond me. Every indication we have gotten over the past few months is that the card will maybe challenge the 980, which the 390x does. Personally I was hoping the card would do better out of the gate and push closer to the 980 than what we have seen so far but with current retail pricing this takes the crown away from the 390 as the mid range budget card to buy.

Well there's still Polaris 11, but Polaris 10's power consumption is a HUGE disappointment, just on par with Maxwell power consumption - pretty embarrassing considering the Fury Nano was also on-par with Maxwell power consumption...

That's why it's so cheap. AMD thought that would shift the perception of the product in a better light....

well gotta be honest

outside of the low price, the reference 480 is junk .. but price makes it good junk

Interesting they said the card was noisy?

On Tom's it was the opposite.

"The Radeon RX 480 does really well under load. During our gaming loop, it’s no louder than Nvidia's reference GeForce GTX 1070. This is in spite of its higher power consumption, simpler cooling solution and more mainstream construction."

According to TPU's performance summary at 1080p it's on par with the 390X.

1080p is where it is aimed for so not too bad.

Shouldn't this be compared to 960 price wise? I feel like everyone was waiting for something more but that's what Vega is for.

True but just pointing out that you could buy a used 390x at the same price as this now making the 390x the better buy.

GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 still have way better performance per watt. AMD, you fail again. frown.gif

Maybe drivers will help performance.

let me tell you

If in order to match 1080 AMD have to deliver a card that's pulling more than a 980Ti then how are they ever going to compete in the high end market ?
