Meh, AIB cards are coming quickly anyway. They wanted this dirt cheap and low powered for people on crap PSUs, they achieved it.

Coming in about the same price as the AIB 390's and with a 390 here you get warhammer free. Better oc'ing, better cooling and a free game.

See I was hoping that was the case with all the power efficiency being touted, but the power draw is still high enough where psu's are still quite a bit of a concern on OEM systems and lower end rigs.

More VRAM,and newer arch which means better driver support down the road are enough. I don't know why anyone would want to buy a 28nm card at this point. 1070/1080 and this card has made everything else obsolete pretty much. And 1060 shouldn't be more than 1-2 months away anyway ,which matters when the reference cooler for 480 is so bad.

Polaris 10 is designed by the Chinese design team? Might explain why Polaris 11 seems to have much better performance/watt.

the 4GB version 480 here is $100 cheaper than the 390.

After digging some of the reviews it looks like its not fighting 980 but 970. Less then we thought. But still good. 32 rops are choking this card for sure.
