When you see the overclocked RX 480 consistently beating the GTX 970 and trading blows with the GTX 980 and buyers can have it all for $199 - $229. I can't wait to see what the AIBs do with this card. Personally I feel that a card this powerful at this price point could really help to improve PC gaming for everyone. Plus it is relatively small and it only takes one 6-pin to power it.

All I have to say is... Good job AMD!

Nope. PCI-e connector can only deliver a 75 wats by the specs.

The cheapest GTX 1070 I can find on newegg is the gigabyte one at 400$.
The RX 480 is priced at 230$. How can one say that they are going to buy the 1070 instead? It's not the same price and it is not the same category at all... Yea AMD suck but I guess Vega is going to offer what all of us are waiting for. The GTX 970 is still very expensive even second-hand. The RX480 really has a nice value for sure!

Anyway, after watching and reading some reviews of rx 480 i can easly say that if amd wont cut rops on rx 470, it would suit me very well. If the 2048 sp spec is true. For 150$ i would hug this card.

I was sort of hoping this wouldn't happen, it's not like AMD said anything close to "GTX 980" performance themselves, and all signs pointed to the RX 480 (AdoredTV correctly pointed out a month ago that it was an R9 290 replacement, R9 390~ level Steam VR benchmark, AMD positioning the card between GTX 970 and GTX 980) being an R9 390/GTX 970 replacement - and it is, and it's pretty good at what it does.
But even so I can't help but feel disappointed, because in a good number of scenarios it's only barely ahead of a R9 390 and GTX 970, and the PPW seems to not come from improvements to the arch. but rather simply from 14nmFF.

Disappointed still, not just with RX 480 but with the GTX 1070/1080 too - I was expecting way too much just because there hasn't been a die shrink since 2011, I guess.

Although I would expect improvement in drivers to at least give this card 10% better performance across the board, and I'm sure in a year it actually will be outperforming a GTX 980.
