anyway yeah it has some OC hype left, lets see what the partners do with it thumb.gif

Are you easily confused Chev?

oh now it's only close to a stock 980ti when OC'd so it's a bad thing.....................

You're cracking me up lol

I'm also completely perplexed when it comes to Perf-Per-Watt..

It looks like Polaris is similar to Pascal, shoe-horned in between Volta and Vega.. At this power draw it isn't really a deal breaker, but if the whole "1500MHz" with AIB's is true those things will be pulling close to Hawaii level.. Good little card for the masses, but I'd be lying if i said i wasn't disappointed. Nvidia have no answer for it right now, but i think the 1060 is going to have a few things to say when it arrives.

No point in downplaying it though, they more or less delivered what they promised. I was just hoping for something really special.

you accussing someone else of cherry picking is irony lol
also accept it on gameworks games it usually 5% slower
on neutral games is above it simple as that

now we will have to wait for more gameworks games on 2016 so nvidia can win again..

oh wait none big one! biggrin.gif

I also would like to ask a thing, is true the RX 480 put a excessive load on PCI Express slot?
in my opinion this are not a good combination for a GPU has the intention to sell to the masses
as an average Joe will look to the price and not if the can can melt in motherboard and AMD is
not on the financial situation for replace stuff and get sued because that, and then don't need
more negative things around their brand.

I was hoping for VEGA10 (RX490) but now I am not so sure anymore considering perf/watt of RX480 is terrible. It's the same architecture

Yet you cant read my comment. AMD never matched the power efficiency of the small dies from nvidia with GCN. Never

Yet when both release the big guns they are matching their performance and the power.

Tahiti was a bit slower on release with a lot more tdp.
Pitcairn on release was the same vs the 660.
And tonga that is kinda flop on the power consumption

There's a lot of controversy here. But I still stand by my thoughts on it

1. Its been marketed as a entry level VR card that be benched against a mid/top tier gaming card.(GTX970/980
2. Drivers have not yet been updated where as the 970/980 have had 2 years worth of tweaking done.
3. Lets see how it fares in VR against the same cards it was tested against in gaming.
4. I don't like the insinuation of being called a hypocrite. I have not changed my outlook on what this card is or the benches done already.

Yes its disappointing at its current performance. But at a release price of +/- $200 what is to be expected? THe 970 released at $329 when it was released 2 years ago. the 980 at $549. So in this day and age for a VR GPU to come in at $200 and compete with a card thats had 2 years worth of drivers updates and fixes really speaks loads to those of us that can't afford to spend $300+ on a GPU.

Eh. Not surprised, really sick of "leaks" overhyping stuff. This is about what you can expect from a low power draw 230€ card. Luckily, I have low standards, a budget, and really want variable refresh rate without paying for G-Sync. Looks acceptable for 2560x1080 and medium/high detail on last year titles. Really hate giving AMD money though. We'll see, I'll wait for the quieter, cooler AIB models, but certainly do not expect any performance increase from those.

..And I kinda really want a GTX1070 now tbh. Meh.

275 euro for 970 gtx gigabyte here
280 euro for RX480 8gb
