pretty sure it passes the 380x by around 40%. And idk how you still can't understand that it beats the 390 in 1080p, on day 1.

You understand that this is the RX 480 right?

The 480 is supposed to replace the 380 and it delivers 40% more performance for the same price. It is not to be compared to higher tiers card.

One month ago you couldn't buy a 970 for 200 bucks new,you still can't now.

If you want to compare it to 500+ USD MSRP cards go ahead but you're just pathethic.

Also who would have guessed that if you overclock...the stock power figures aren't the same anymore....CRAZY RIGHT? lachen.gif

Yeah, but power usage is insane for the performance (when you compare to Pascal). The power efficiency AMD spoke of went straight out the window when they had to clock the card high enough to compete/surpass the 970.

Pretty much this. It still lands at 2x perf/w compared to HD 7970/R9 280X though. rolleyes.gif

That's why I don't think that the 480 as we have it now was necessarily as it was intended to be. We'll know more once we see the perf/watt on the 460 and 470 to get a better overview of the entire Polaris range but it seems that for the size of P10 the 480 is pushing the limits of what it can do. It would explain quite a bit if there is substantial efficiency loss beyond a certain performance point. I think that the AIB 480's will be solid performers and more efficient than previous AMD cards but will lose some ground on the efficiency gains relative to the 460, 470, and obviously the reference 480. Either way it's still moving in terms of sales due to perf/$ and that's the primary metric the mainstream market operates on.

Yes, because I have a track record of supporting Nvidia price hikes. rolleyes.gif

By your own logic, the "mid-range" 380(X) lineup was initially launched as the the HD 7970 for $500 and then relaunched as the HD 7970 GHz Edition for $ 450 and then it was rebranded as the R9 380(X) for $299 and was eventually refreshed as the larger Tonga part that is the $229 R9 380(X)

Let us see what is going on with Hawaii...
Hawaii was initially launched as the the R9 290(X) for $550 and then it was rebranded as the R9 390(X) for $430 and was eventually refreshed as the smaller Polaris part that is the $239 RX 480

Notice any parallels?

Please do continue Slomo, this is hilarious! lachen.gif

Oh you wish. I enjoy watching morons fall for marketing gimmicks and then continue to backpedal and justify their purchasing decisions. Speaking of which, how is that RX 480 treating ya?

Yeah, their price/performance looks like it's going to be through the roof, if all the talk is to be believed..

The p/w is going to go down the drain though, but it can't be worse than AMD's previous cards. And if they get within spitting distance of a Fury then i doubt anyone will complain.

Uh just because you mudsling both brands it still does not change the fact it's mudsling...move along,nice try though.

Your argument is pretty lame,you're backlashing on a card that has nothing to hate besides the PCI-E problem. Comparing it to previous flagships and getting salty that it doest no live to your expectations.

Is this GTX 1070 redux again? Old users salty at their card getting obsolete? Sure it does look like,because at this point there's no rational way to explain your behaviour.

Sure, the 780 Ti ($700) was refreshed as the GTX 970 ($330) which was then refreshed as the 1060 ($300). I can use that logic on NV's lineup too. Every time there is a refresh the performance levels get pushed down the product stack. Its been that way for quite some time now.
