Well GTX 970 stock uses around 160W... but AIB cards might/will use over 200W.
Thats not the point. The point is AMD did reasonable thing... they went for quantity, not quality. So basically you can undervolt RX 480 and probably it will use like 20-30% less power with no performance cost.

- So 160W with undervolt you will get 120-125W. Which is nice.

Thats why they are cheap and thats why stocks are full.

i know, but Ileakstuff was talking, that the 970 was the better card to get when the drivers for the 970 are about as fine tuned as they can get, where as the RX480 will be trading blows with the gtx980 when the drivers get more mature, soon the RX480 will leave the 970 in the dust thumb.gif

The RX 480 is doing what AMD hoped it would do. Their strategy was not to go head to head with nVIDIA on the highend. Their strategy is entirely focussed on VR (whether that is a good or bad idea is not up to me to decide). The first part of this strategy was LiquidVR and GPU Open followed by the Radeon Pro Duo and now the RX 480. AMD are looking to seed the market with the software solution... the developer hardware as well as a low cost solution in order to takeover the VR market during its onset. Guess what? It is working... and their stock price is in part reflecting the success of this strategy given that Wall St thinks that the VR market (they are betting on it even) will overtake Smartphones in sheer volume by 2020.

AMD needs to get DX12 and ASync in as many Games/Game Engines as they can.

So just due to the fact that the RX 480 is sold out everywhere, this may signal a turning point for AMD. Regardless of what you believe, they worked the RX 480 launch to perfection.

Remember, the majority of us on this forum are enthusiasts that like to buy expensive hardware. The RX 480 is not aimed at us. Rather, it is aimed at the crowd that wants a cheap, fairly fast card that won't break the bank. In that regard, AMD positioned themselves perfectly.

It just shows people value performance at lower cost.

You disagree? You think that rx 480 is as optimized as it will ever be a few days after launch? Or you think the 970 has room to stretch it's legs still after 2 years of optimization?

That backplate is a bit wild compared to the rest of the card, but overall I like it thumb.gif

hopefully reviewers get them in hand sometime soon
