Where can you buy a brand new 290X? It's a 390X now.

Not disappointed with the card as much as I am with the fact that I don't think they will regain as much market-share with it as I was hoping for.

Lord save me from this $700 mid tier cards

you can still grab new ones from amazon, newegg, and a few other places. reference ones go for 200-215 though right now pricing isnt looking as good obviously, but when the 4gb rx480 is available @ 200$ its gonna steal the show (which is what Im waiting for personally)

Yes some add a bit more juice to it, or more correctly, they add more connectors in order to put less strain on the ATX connection and allow a draw from another source in order to give the CPU more stable power as well and not burn out the main power connector, and more than a few power suppliers also allow more draw from the 6pin.

Overall the 155-160w power consumption at max can be explained from other sources of power usage which are running, and they are not "cut down" from the equation for various reasons.

Molex PCIe 6-pin is capable of delivering 6A x 12V x 3 wires. 216w, add th '75 watts' which is only actually 54 watts on 3.0 due to signaling and you can spike up around 290w on a six pin without too much risk.

The "wattage" numbers for these connectors are imposed as maximum draw thresholds on the manufacturers, they are not the physical limits of the power supply or connectors. A card that exceeds 150+50 watts draw stock with only a 6-pin will simply not be certified, this is why you see boards that often have unused mounting points for an additional power lead so an additional connector can be added.

No, but it was a directed statement wasn't it? A big part of the PR. "get two 480s instead of a single 1080!" kind of statement.
If they stated 480 < 980 performance, it wouldn't be as much of a punch now wouldn't it?

Well I can talk about my situation, as I'm looking to buy a card, you are just trolling with no intention of purchasing, you're not the joker, the joke is on you honestly.

PR is bull****, look at nvidia. Plus he never said 480s in Xfire will beat a 1080 in all games, pay attention next time and you won't be fooled by marketing noob.

AMD needs 14nm to match Nvidia's efficiency on 28nm, Pathetic,

TBH, I think they put that as their first card because they saw how the 970 was really a very popular card in the mid-range level, so they wanted that too, to bring a card to each the mid-range, and hoped they could pull an nvidia stunt by bringing a mid range performer card for cheap and eat on that market while nvidia doesn't have a new card in that market.
