I need something more yes.

What others need I don't know.

After it became clear that AMD plans on hitting the 200-300$ budget crowd I lowered my expectations. I expected :

- 200-239$
- GTX 980 performance
- better performance/watt than 28nm GPUs
- moderate overclockability.

and I was disappointed by today. It's as simple as that. Other people may have had lower expectations. Good for them I guess.

Lol everyone is gouging the price in Canada $40 or more. 780TI staying where it is unless AIB's can deliver better cards for less.

Im comparing CF 480 vs 1080 (& 1070)

What are you trying to argue here? Even when you CF 2 480's you would still nearly be spending half the price of the 1080..
I bought a G1 1080 for 697 EUR

right now theres listings of 8GB ref 480 for 300+ EUR from the same shops .. it will probably go down to 280 soon


and I was showing performance, not price

because I recall some ppl saying how they were gonna buy CF 480 and beat a 1080 .. RIP dreams

the "CF 480 >= 1080" train got derailed hard too today redface.gif

RX 480 = 163 W
GTX 1070 = 145W
GTX 1080 = 166W

That's impossible. Polaris is at Nvidia's Maxwell generation. That is depressing.

It will likely not OC any more than its out of the box clocks. If you can hold on for two weeks, skip this reference trash and get a reasonably priced AIB card with an 8pin connection at least.

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.

I read your post, and responded accordingly, you just try to shift the subject and call me wrong, when I've proven with facts/sources/links. You just say I'm wrong and say I'm emotionally invested. I don't care if you feel your "neither blinded by hate nor a fanboy of any sort." You made a false comment and was corrected. You keep arguing against the facts I keep showing you. I don't see anything wrong with correcting false information. I dunno if its an agenda or whatever but you were wrong.

I'm glad you have a R9 290X and love it. I have a 7950 and love it. Cards we buy that do what we want for a price we're ok with are nice right?

But as long as we're here, the RX 480 is decent value, despite what you try to claim. Again, if your still arguing with me on that point, please provide proof, any proof, anything, that backs your claim and refutes my counter claim (for which I have sources/facts/links)

Your very emotionally invested in arguing with me, despite your lack of any kind of real info or facts at all, you haven't even tried to cherry pick something, no effort at all. But hey, my facts are wrong, my links are wrong, my sources are all wrong and were done to allow me to push my own emotional agenda on OCN rolleyes.gif

But this is getting out of hand I think, so unless your actually gonna back up your words with something other than your opinion, I'm moving on. Have a good day! (And be sure to check out the links I posted so you can correct yourself, so you don't make posts others might consider true when they are not.

This make the benchmarks against a card like the 970 pretty much crap in my book. Everyone is talking about how its comparing against a card that was purpose built for mid/top tier gaming. Lets see how that mid/top tier gaming card competes in VR against a card that was purpose built for VR.

Oh yeah, thats right. They could possibly be proven wrong and would have to eat crow.

I think the market has more need for the gaming than VR. Just an oppinion.

With the performance of this card, would it even be worth getting 8GB? By the time you get past 4GB of VRAM usage you're handicapped by the power of the GPU so much I can't imagine how bad your frame rates would be....

Prices are accurate.
Not quite 980 performance.
Has better performance per watt by a mile over GCN 28nm GPUs, as expected.
Will overclock nicely, it can get Fury X performance on a 6 pin power connector........................

if the latest AIB rumour is true of them hitting 1480-1600mhz then you might want 8GB, an overclocked card on a german site is matching fury X as it is.
