[...]

I hope someone have the 4gb model and can check the memory modules, visually or with MemoryInfo.

It is indeed true that 4GB reference cards are assembled with those 8Gb Samsung ram modules.

Just need someone who can share those reviewer BIOS tools. tongue.gif

Guess who is going to save some money? biggrin.gif

I also think they won't change the modules, nor AMD and partners because of that 1.55v, because Samsung at least do not have any GDDR5 4gb modules higher than 7ghz

What's with the pricing of the RX 480?

I don't want to be limited by the 4gb version.
8gb is going for $239 instead of $229...

What does that mean for the 8gb cards without the blower coolers?
Even higher?

AIB's have always been higher priced

Yeah, some rumored prices around $300. The nitro is supposed on pre-order very soon.

Hype deflated.
Far cry from the initial 200 price tag.

I know, but by 380x Nitro was maybe $10 above MSRP and now there are rumors that AIBs for the 480 will cost closer to $300. What gives?

Rumors are just that at this point though.. Honestly I think we will see most AIB's in the $250-$260 range which is reasonable if they are performing much faster than the reference 480's. Now of course you will have some "Mega Hyper Turbo Nitro XXX Holy Jeebus" editions out there that will likely be at or near $300 but they are really more like the msi lighnting's, KPE's, etc.

The good news is expect in 3 months or so the 8gb reference will be $199 and the 4gb at $175.. this should allow AIB's to be priced in the low to mid 200's at the highest.

For $70 over reference the aib cards had better be binned and "1480mhz" better be on the low side. +100mhz oc would be rediculous for that price.

Unless it's stock clocks, 1480mhz stock + oc would be cool, with the big boys like the toxic coming in with 1600mhz clocks but that seems hopeful.

What about RX 470, it should be great deal.

Since nvidia tech is way to expensive GTX 1060 and GTX 1050 should be like 150$ to compete with AMD, because you will pay for Gsync at least 100-150$ more... SO can see NVIDIA to be ideal for budget games.

RX 480 performs very well with 32ROPs...
