Pitcairn on release was the same vs the 660.
And tonga that is kinda flop on the power consumption

So you would expect the RX490 (VEGA10) to have the same perf/watt as the GTX 1080?

Or do you mean GPUs beyond that? GTX 1080 Ti and whatever comes for AMD ?

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

In what universe is a $239 price for 3 year old performance really good? I suppose you found the GTX 960 providing near GTX 680 performance at $200 a great buy as well rolleyes.gif

AMD seems to be doing a fine job of that all by themselves these days. I really had hope for this card.....I was assured (again.....) that it was going to be different this time.....

But, not as bad as my worst fears. The cynical part of me said "matches performance of a 980 in two random synthetic benchmarks, performs like a 960 everywhere else". It is distinctly better than a 960, so I guess there is that.

And that depends on the game. Some of the newer games really start to take into usage the 4GB+ options. With the 970 having 3.5gb of fast memory and 0.5gb of slow memory, it does get hit when it comes to high settings high memory usage times (mainly the reason why the 480 can run modestly at 1440p and the 970 can't in many games, even if it is still behind the 980 is most games).

Yup, 290x has been the best gpu purchase I've ever made at this point, and it came with a copy of BF4 as well. I had considered selling my 290x for the rx-480 even if it matched it due to the anticipated power consumption and quieter cooler (plus extra 4gb at 4k helps) but it missed the mark a bit there unfortunately and at higher res it just can't handle itself as well as an oc'ed 290x can.

We get it. The $250 card doesn't match the $450+ cards. I still don't see why you're gloating about that.

The 970 has had two years for prices to stabilize, give it a couple days for the gouging to stop.

In either case, it's stronger than a 970 and as you pointed out, has 8GB of Vram compared to 3.5.

On TPU review in some games as resolution increases it performs behind the r9 390x (1440+)

ROP and Bandwidth limited

it needed at least 384 bit bus and at leats 64 ROPs/4 RBEs per SE

Disappointing.970 is already $250 so where is the value in the 8gb card? 4gb model is a good value though.
