Price wise, especially 2nd hand, the 980 TI is a great deal though.
I can get a msi 980ti for <$400 new. What are good secondhand prices atm?

Depends on where you live. I have seen them go around the 300$.

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

The meat of that chart is why I'm looking at an AMD card to potentially put in my HTPC even if this one isn't it (pending AIB OC reviews). I also wonder though if we can expect that trend to continue. Most people seem to think so (including the adored video posted here a few times) even though no one knows why it is happening. There is a lot of speculation why, but no answer. Is it because Nvidia keeps changing architectures prioritizing new ones while AMD has been using GCN revisions that allows this? If so is Navi still going to be GCN based?

So while I'm liking what we've seen historically regarding improvement over time I'm at least somewhat hesitant to assume that is the way it will always be. (Just a note: I'm not talking about short term performance gains from better drivers, but the long steady improve over time vs competing tier cards).

edit: In theory if it is going to happen (like Kepler) we should start to see it soon with Maxwell now that Pascal is out. Maxwell's lost ground has been smaller so far.

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.

And this is how AMD drivers have worked for several gens now...

The only real way to get the word out is to make it a point to have reviewers re-test the card to show that it's now beating its counterpart.

Amazon.de has crazy used prices.Lowest i've seen were 230 euro for Zotac extreme.Usually around 300.They are there and then 3 minutes later they disappear.
post #1526 of 3674
It's crazy out there in sales isn't it? One seller already sold a 1000 RX480's
post #1527 of 3674
My local microcenter sold out and they got alot, over 300 cards gone already. these are the type of cards everyone buys, sadly it's easy for AMD to scam people with a non overclocking, gimped up, non PCIE compliant card due to that.

Someone zip tied an H100 to a RX 480, getting 1487 on the core. Purely power limited at that point, meaning that it is pulling 225w (150w power limit + 50% in WM).

Reported temps were in the mid 60's.
