780 optimisation is pretty much achieved at this point, so it is what it is. 480 will have noticeable performance increases with subsequent driver releases, and is better in DX12. FWIW I'm looking to replace the 780 Ti in my secondary rig with an AIB 480, pending reviews.

 

If you go that route, I'd avoid reference.

If you want an opinion, I would wait.

There were so many great aftermarket 4580s though. I loved my 4850 Toxic. Damn, I am old...

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

The thing is, many people, including myself, expected significantly better efficiency from 14nm chip. Which I think, makes sense to expect with so much of a leap (28nm to 14nm). None the less, I think RX 480, especially 4Gb version for $200, represents a very good value which will get even better when aftermarket cooling solutions come out.

The thing is, when you compare the efficiency numbers to AMD's other products, it fares pretty well. Compare them to NVidia's products however, and that's a whole different ballgame.
Aside from the efficiency matter, the card is decent. (Not amazing as some would claim)

When the hell are AIB's dropping? Reference cards are always the same story... boring and limited. I want to see what type of clocks these things can get.

My local MicroCenter has a open box RX480 for $192...DANG!!! Cheap! lol

.....

I would buy it. Even if dead, you know it has a warranty/return policy!


If I had my GTX970 back from RMA I'd definitely go pick it up. Heck I could sell my 970 for more than that and I'd actually make a profit...lol

You'd be losing performance in some cases if you did.

Buy $192 card, then sell 970 the moment it gets back from RMA. Win win problem solved. biggrin.gif
