This release is more disappointing than my first gf...

Horribly disappointing with these benchmarks... and I thought power consumption was supposed to be 150w or under?????

Maybe with better drivers the performance will be better but still...

AIBs are the next hype train now redface.gif

but how much will they cost, how much will be down to lottery and how much frikking watts will this little monster draw at 1500+ Mhz


also even a 1500-1550+ OC (if its possible) will just match (not exceed) the OCs of 970/980 .. but itll be an improvement over the reference for sure

More or less what was expected.

Summary:

1. Sometimes a little slower than the 970, sometimes faster and sometimes it's actually closer to the 980 ballpark than to the 970, which shows potential with future drivers;

2. The frame times / smooth gameplay are now much better and comparable to Nvidia. It's now appropriate to say thanks Scott! (Scott Wasson from TR who went to work for AMD because of his contributions to frame time analysis);

3. The reference cooler is crappy. A bit loud and lets the card get too hot, third party coolers to save the day;

4. Performance per watt is as expected, it matches the 970 at 28nm, which at the end of the day seems disappointing, but it was a known quantity. They shaved off a lot of watts from the comparable R9 390 / 390X at 28nm, but in the end it goes to show that AMD only made some minor power efficiency improvements in the architecture itself, the power gains are coming from the transition to the new manufacturing process, they are way behind Nvidia in this regard. Maybe they can keep things balanced at the high end if Nvidia uses GDDR5X with the 1080 Ti and AMD uses lower power HBM2 with Vega.


All in all, it's a good card, but I don't know if it builds the momentum that they need. Pricing and overclockability will be key, possibly future driver improvements and also how long it takes Nvidia to launch the 1060 and where it will stand. It's certainly much better than the power hogs semi-rebranded 390X / 390, we can finally put those behind us.

And the hype is gone.

Next time you should believe your eyes and the facts instead of WCCF.

It seems that AMD still failed with the cooler and the drivers at release as always. The gpu performs as it should. The p/w is pretty good vs their OWN products. It should be around 1.7-1.8

Now we need the rest of the pack:

Bonaire-> polaris 11
Pitcairn -> polaris 10
Tahiti->
Hawaii/Fiji->

It is a good mainstream card for those that needs a good 1080p card.

Dunno if this counts but 970s of all makes have been hovering at the 230-245 range for the past month now. Just check slickdeals if you don't believe me.

4 GB version with a slight VRAM OC to match the 8 GB version VRAM speed - for $199 bucks seems like a steal.

I wonder if AIB will even bother with a 4GB version though...

It is a $240 card that performs like a $240 card - not really a surprise !
Unless you are in Australia where it is a $450 Au card performing like a $300 card .
My interest is gone unless there is a significant price drop in Australia !

Here is the kicker. 5-10% OC = 5-10% performance boost on this card. This is not the case with the GTX 970 and GTX 980.
