Anyway, it's 1328 Mhz, but it's still using a blower style cooler. The backplate looks pretty nice though.

yup, it's been on the newegg page for a few days now. It's obviously sold out.

The saving grace for this card (once throwing power efficiency out the window) will be how AIB's overclock.

Not saying it's a bad card, because it's far from it and still the best deal for the price, but it could certainly could have been better off the bat if amd simply added a power connector to the thing and a slightly beefier cooler. I don't think many here would have minded a 10 buck premium on reference cards if it oc'ed past 980 easily.

It seems that AMD cut off a lot of things to meet OEM requirements and the 200 price.

Plastic cooler that can maintain around 70-80C at reasonable noise.
Just a 6-pin so they can put a cheaper psu in there. Most cheap OEM psus are only have 6-pin

The rest is up to AIBs

There are still plenty of numbers AMD can use after Polaris 11. Would be interesting however if they decided to release a first revision of P10 with 64 ROP's (if that's possible) as an RX 485.

I meant the 980 is 60+% the performance of the 1080, my bad. Still only 66% faster according to TPU which was deemed as a fail by the guy I quoted considering that's around how much faster the 480 is than the 380...

I dont think there is a higher version of polaris 10. This gpu specs are exactly the same as pitcairn

Both around 220mm^2 , 256 bit, 32 ROPs and 160-170 watt tdp

If you watch the interview of koduri on Pcper he said that they designed around Polaris 11 and they hit some limits with polaris 10 especially on the clocks.

In that post I was suggesting there are plenty of numbers beyond 10 and 11 for another Polaris chip. They have never said these will be the ONLY Polaris chips ever made...

I comment on the 485 rumor that you said. After polaris 10 is Vega

Where did I say the 480 is a bad card? All I said was that for a lot of people, the 480 isn't worth upgrading from if you already had a 280x, 380x, or a 380. OCN is not representative at all for what the average PC gamer is like. While people on OCN with a 380 might buy a 480, not a lot of people can justify or have the means to keep spending $200-250 every year to upgrade their graphics cards.

Goes to show you how seriously out of touch this forum is. People are calling me crazy for not ditching the 380x that I pretty much just bought. rolleyes.gif

Just random speculation. But there is no proof at all that they will not make any more Polaris chips. Vega will be for high end but that may mean Fiji-level cards whereas I could see an RX 490 still on Polaris 12 for instance. Raja said himself that if they released another Polaris it would be the number "12" due to order of release meaning that they have at least thought about more Polaris cards (even if it may be unlikely)

Nah, if you're happy with your card there is no reason to move on. What's crazy is the people telling potential buyers to 'just get a 970 instead'. :p
