AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 32

post #311 of 3674
Just bought mine! Picked up the Sapphire 8gb reference card. I knowthe reviews are disappointing to some, but coming from an HD 6870 like me this card will provide huge performance increases. For those not sold I would recommend waiting for AIB solutions before passing final judgment. This card could be an overclocking beast. I just didn't want to wait because I only plan on keeping this card until Vega when I will buy my high end card. Until then I'll be sure to post some benchmarks wink.gif

We need progress. In my opinion the RX 480 is not good enough considering we are on a new node and 2 years have past since that.

What confuses me the most is why they have similar performance/power draw. It's unreal. Under normal circumstance the RX 480 at 14nm would have much better power/performance than the 28nm GTX 970 but it doesn't.

Sweet dude, crank the fan up a bit and OC it if possible to give us some great numbers!

It's GCN my friend, what fool made you think otherwise. Who cares.

RX 480 is a GPU that performs better, is newer, has more features, will get better with mature drivers, and costs less.

are you getting this yet? Or blinded by AMD hate still?

I see you don't read any of my post. Ask ChevChelios how much I beat on Nvidia.

Just look at my post in the GTX 1080 threads.

I give 'em both heat. I am neither blinded by hate nor a fanboy of any sort. Just ask people that see me frequently post.

Stop implying I have an agenda. I don't. I objectively look at a product and see how it is.

Btw my current card is a AMD RADEON R9 290X and I love it.

? with cherry picked scaling only games it still loses by a bit

and with all games included (as is a proper comparison) it is beaten handily

are you seeing something Im not seeing ?


hell, with all games, it even loses to a 1070

I just bought mine too. I went for the xfx with the factory OC because I don't really stretch my video cards the way I do my processors. Overpaid a little, but meh. I'll post benchmarks as well.
