They don't have to add tons of crap like backplates and LED lights, just slap on a nice 2x100mm fan cooler and also cool the VRMs and VRAM and call it a day. The GPUs don't have to be super complex and expensive.

They will come.

As for AMD lowering the price, my only issue is +$39 for the 8gb card is steep. $220-230 makes more sense, imo.

Asus charging $300 (+$60) has nothing to do with AMD, Sapphire charging $280 (+$40) has nothing to do with AMD. I'll agree that tho, the prices are a bit outrageous. Asus especially has lost their minds.

It's almost as if Nvidia is paying ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI to charge a lot for the RX 480 so people would buy the ASUS/Gigabyte/MSI 1060's instead lol. Then Sapphire goes, "Omg, if they can charge that price, then I can too!". redface.gif

My bite point for an AIB 480 is $260. Give me the non factory OCed ones. I find it unecessary to get charged $20 for a simple overclock I could do myself.

Except the Asus 1060 strix models are $310 and $330 lol so still $60-$80 over starting price.

Hey, hey! Buy you get the idea! I mean, what I said speaks more towards EVGA and Zotac on newegg, But more impressive OCs for the 1060, with better performance and watts, and at a similar price to the 480, man...

Indeed, you can buy a 980Ti for that price.

Where? I've tried finding one but most Nvidia 2nd hand sellers are crazy and want for 980Ti the same price a new 1070 sells for lol. Plus being a high end product the amount of 2nd hand offers is quite low, on top of that only 1080 and Titan XP beats 980Ti in performance, making 980Ti owners keep their cards and not sell them. Even on eBay they sell for ridiculous 400 EUR which is some 40 EUR less than a new 1070.

What gets me about the aib 480s is they're likely saving money on the custom pcb over reference, and then charging a ridiculous amount for the cooler. I just don't see any reason for them to cost over $250-$260.

I also don't see the 1060 having decent quantities of stock in the near future, and that could help to save AMD from their air headed partners.

I too would love to know where you can get a 980ti for $300. Going off previous posts, I hope you aren't referring to an auction in progress on eBay. Lol
