you are trying too hard to make this card look good.

you can't reduce a GPU simply to "SHOW ME A BETTER CARD AT THIS EXACT PRICE mad.gif".

it's not that simple dude.

So, it's exciting because it dangles over the VR performance line for cheap?

Sounds to me a lot like those sports casters who can slice a sports statistic out of thin air and try desperately to make it sound significant.

"This is the most strikeouts by a one-quarter Norwegian pitcher on a Tuesday."

"This is the most consecutive pass completions with even numbered yard gains since October 24 2002."

"This is the most fouls I have ever seen out of a Libertarian Spaniard. There must be some connection.


That's all to say, if it weren't for VR, I don't think this would matter as much.

Before tax? Better off getting a 970 off Kijiji for ~$300 CAD.

New conspiracy theory: the pc version of the rx 480 are the gpus that didn't make the cut for next gen consoles. Would make sense why the efficiency is pure crap, and also why there's "25x" more availability compare to the 1080 launched.

Sadly this is seriously a repeat of the 290x reference card launch, they literally didn't learn. I know you have to cut corners for the price point but not if it's killing your performance at the most critical time to show off the product.

290x non throttling vs stock & throttling are two totally different cards and it looks like the RX480 is exactly the same. Can't wait to see what they can do judging from these oc performance results.

There was a CF review posted a few pages back I think.

8GB vs 4GB so it's actually better vs Maxwell than it first appears. Still a bit underwhelming given the node shrink. Is this the first GPU primarily delivered by their Chinese design team? May not be all on GloFo's shoulders.

it isn't too far fetched considering the PS4 NEO will have this exact GPU
