They've been limiting it in gaming GPUs, the hardware is still there. Fury never got a workstation equivalent card due to only have 4GB RAM. Polaris though was promised for workstation market iirc, so it should also come with 1/2 DP then.

GTX 970 released in 2014 on 28nm.
RX 480 released in 2016 on 14nm.

This is BAD. Compare it to Pascal's efficiency and it's very clear how far behind AMD is. You get more Vram and hopefully save a few bucks but to the unbiased consumer this cannot be considered a truly successful launch.
Totally agree with you, two years later, double the manufacturing process, and still the same performance and power compsuption, not good at all.

You do know you can use AMD cards on that monitor you know, and you will be able to gain a use of a higher Hz monitor?
You just won't get the benefit of g-sync itself.

Also g-sync is considered superior than adaptive sync in terms of ghosting elimination and overall screen performance, but it is just a bit more pricer. Just like getting a basic mazda 3 vs a tricked out mazda 3. Same car, just one has a bit more nice things in it, but it also cost a bit more.

60% chip size of 970, and 60% of 970 price with same performance is bad? o.O

Tomshardware exposes a few issues with these reference boards.

1. The card goes over the advertised TDP
2. The card pulls 20% more power through the PCI express slot than the standard allows
3. There is one memory chip between the GPU and Vregs that heats up beyond Samsung's rated specs.

This card @ constant 1266MHz will be as fast as 390X @1080p, slower @1440p

yes I know that.

But it would be wasteful to buy a G-Sync monitor with that horrible extra fee and then not use it.

I'd rather have 70 fps with G-Sync enabled than 90fps without G-Sync

Check out these benchmarks

http://www.pcgameshardware.de/AMD-Radeon-Grafikkarte-255597/Specials/RX-480-Test-1199839/2/

scroll down page for OC results.

1350mhz 480 pretty close to Hercules 980 1380mhz (depending on game)

Matches fury X.

Yeah i'm talking about a friend who has a 980 and an EK block here in the states who is willing to let it go for 275$, not a retailer by any means. I can't predict the future though so i'm going to wait.

Those are pretty solid results.

But the power consumption is the only con, let them focus on it and expel all their energy, they will tire eventually and we can discuss the many pros to these cards.

As a PC enthusiast that OC's my CPU, ram and GPU I don't give a stuff about power lol.

That's a good deal for sure, but these 480 AIB cards will be exciting if they can hit 1480-1600mhz as rumoured from Kyle.

TSMC has 16nm FinFet, which is what Pascal is currently being built on. NV's premium pricing makes it harder to decipher which node is cheaper, but GloFlo has historically been cheaper and inferior to TSMC.
