AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 28

post #271 of 3674
another thing about these reviews ....
how many ppl are actually gonna run those on oc'd i5's or i7's ? the overhead on low end CPUs is gonna leave RX 480 on 960 level.

A 1070 is over 600 here.

let's face it people every country is going to be different and a good deal to some won't be for others.

personally I'm glad I'm able to get this card at a good price, and far cheaper than the 970/390.

like using lots of power that means better cooling are built instead of just continuously sending out the same old stuf

Might also explain why P10 pulls 90 watt from the PCIE slot. Running out of spec is never a good idea long term.

the thing is those crazy good AIBs, even if they OC good, will also raise the price and drive p/p down

the hype of this card was a 980 for $200 - that didnt come true, its more like 390/970+

is coming close to stock Fury/stock Fury X on a $300++ AIB really that great of deal in comparison ? its not bad, but the insane p/p is no longer there I think ..

in fact, if the reference 8GB turned out $240-250 in reality, than a really good top custom card would be easily over $300, no ? And if youŗe spending over $300 why not get a 1070 ?

4gb RX 480 is definitely the star of the show. 8gb is not overly helpful at its performance level. And is a waste IMHO.

If AIB cards are indeed hitting 1500+ the 8gb of ram may prove necessary, at least in that context.

Why would anyone buy the 4gb version, I was talking about the 8gb version ofcourse as those are in the same league the 4gb one is an entry card. Though the main draw of this card is that it has 4gb over the 970, most people in the other thread were saying "Lul why buy a 970 4gb is obsolete".
