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.

I'm not. Yet it was their statement. To the people who are not running in OCN and reading all the threads, might presume that the 480s is a better deal. And aren't they aiming at those people with the cards?

Bringing a hype is just as important in PR as giving false hope.

The argument has sunk as low as people actually stating they'd buy a reference 290 instead. 'Crazy town in here' I'm out enjoy the trolling.

Well... if there's darn better coolers it might make it worth it...

at 1080p gaming or even 1440p I don't think 8GB would be justified over 4GB with the raw GPU power from this card...

I supposedly get my GTX970 send back "by the latest,Friday"...so I don't think it'd be worth the sale and buy of this new card. Unless driver optimization and overclocking go way above some of these initial reviews...

I would be buying a GTX 1070 right about now if it wasn't for the supply and boot/DL-DVI issues.

What boot/DL-DVI issues?

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.
I do care about it but same power draw, and same performance for less price got me. I just dont understand some people. And the fact that its 14nm or 28nm chip dont hit me. Im not playing with nanometers, im playing games with my pc (overall thing). Sure, it is a flaw that lower sized die draws same power with same performance, but I DONT CARE.

You invalidated your point by using the word "deal".

...graphics nerds hoping that AMD would regain its performance lead in the future might wonder whether AMD set out to make a mainstream card, or whether—thanks to less than stellar efficiency improvements with Polaris—its hand was forced.

They may have a point there. AMD may not have set out to target the mainstream, but dealt the hand they were given. Ouch.

It is 6A total, not 6Ax3.

I still remember people say the same thing about 1 GB/2 GB/ 3 GB cards. Till people got their 780 Ti stutter like crazy in games like Watch Dogs and SOM with Ultra textures setting. 8 GB while might not be fully saturated but it is still a good benefit over 3.5 GB.

A price is a price. It doesn't matter if the card used to cost 650$ on release, if it is being sold now at 320$ now isn't it?
