Those types of posts were removed rather conveniently in retrospect to the Polaris launch (i wonder if it will mysteriously be changed now). Where could this evidence possibly be considering NV hasnt launched the card. Why the double standards? I havent seen any evidence that is the case, maybe it isnt, but convincing as mainy people of it as possible before launch would sure be a great benefit to them.
Anyway, just some general muzings about something i found interesting.
The RX480 does look pretty good though. NV may not have anything to battle it until a lot of time has passed and what about the AIB cards.
Correct me if I wrong, but I believe 1060 is still no where to see, no where to test, and no where to know if perf gain over rx 480 is real. And we still don't even know on dx12.
There is nothing to say for website reviewers, as they still don't have the card. They are not here to buzz, but to add real information to the table.
Giving false hope or wrong hope to the people is something that (I believe) we don't need on OC.net.
We have plenty of that already.
1060 wil be tested and probably better than rx 480 when it's released. It will also probably be more expensive as usual. Nothing new. But for the moment, RX 480 is alone on the market, has no more power consumption problem, and has its price lowering everyday (saw 225€ in France for 8go model). It's its time to shine on the market.
