Then I hope for your sake that the GTX 1060 performs like a 980ti. They're rumored at 250 for the 3GB, 300 for the 6GB. Though, the rumors are stemming from WCCF (not the best source, probably closer to the worst)

Lol, i'm not going to upgrade until like another year. I'm perfectly happy with my 380x and I would just rather wait until I feel that I need to upgrade.

Almost no difference as I expected. For 1080p no reason to go 8GB and 40$ more, imo

Yep, just what I was expecting.

I know people are going to say "but-but-but, the future!". By the time that games will require (not simply allocate) more than 4GB of VRAM, I bet that we will be in another console generation and a 8GB 480 would be getting like 18 fps whereas a 4GB 480 will be getting around 11 in any given title in 1440p maxed.

I know AMD is hyping up VR but lets be real with ourselves, 99% of the people who are going to buy the 480 are using it for 1080p/60Hz gamimg which makes an 8GB frame buffer unnecessary.

Yeah, i'm with you there, if I wasn't rocking a GTX 670, I wouldn't be this enticed to upgrade. Upgrading every 2-3 generations is fine in my book.

I'm not swimming in cash like you lot. I can't just go out and buy a card that I will only use for around half a year and buy another.

I'm sorry to burst your delusional bubble but the RX 480 cost 199$ not any arbitrary number you choose to give it, the only difference with the 8GB version is memory clock speed, otherwise they're identical and since they both use the same memory they both should clock the same as the 4GB version is SKU limited, not hardware limited.

I'm also sorry to inform you that if you want 980Ti performance then 199$ wont get you anywhere, which is the price point for the RX 480, you'll need to spend 470$ now at the very least as I did for a GTX 1070, and if you buy a 400$ GTX 980Ti I can only pity you given Nvidia track record of gimping older cards, talk about not having money then goes to pay double the price for a card thumb.gif

So will my mobo burn into flames if i buy one?

i had a GTX 960 on loan from a friend just gave it back to him today

Still running the HD 6950 got new cooler on it but i think its a little slow these days biggrin.gif

Hopefully there is a way to BIOS mod to force the 6 pin to draw more current. With the "150w TDP" I wager that nobody is going to use this with a crappy PSU, so its going to be safe. The only big downside is that the VRM that handles the 6 pin power input is going to see extra load, but everyone says that the RX 480's VRMs are very good.

potentially but I would expect motherboards to be able to handle more power than just 80-90w but I could be wrong... alot of Nvidia bios allow upto 75w on the PCIE rail. Maybe with a cheap PCIE riser it would be a big issue... They would have tested the card to ensure its safe for the users...hopefully....

Cards don't die from OCing to be honest, this is something thats being said for so long.

When I look for used cards I actually prefer when the seller have overclocked their cards so I can ask for estable achievable frequencies, it's no different than buying a CPU from "Silicon Lottery"

Obviously the best price/perf sells. The only ones that are in denial of this are some people that bleed green.

I think this card is a failure from a efficiency perspective but it meets the market demands of high performance at very low cost. Look at the Hawaii cards in terms of efficiency they were a disaster and they sounded like a F35 taking of yet people gobbled them up. (I have 2 Hawaii cards biggrin.gif so much value)

I have friends that will be building a new pc soon ~1000 euros including screen and this is basically what I will get. (I doubt the GTX 1060 will be out before I have to build it)
i5 and this card will make a good gaming setup.
