I'll keep sticking to this 7970 this time as well!

Agree 100% had high hopes for AMD but this is just not really good enough. The GTX 1060 might be much better. About the only good thing is the price IMO.

Do we have any reviews on the 4gb version? People keep comparing the 8gb version to the 970 by saying it's only $200, but the $200 version is the 4gb one right? The 4gb version is supposed to perform a bit worse and the 8gb version is about on par with the 970, so for all we know the 4gb version might be worse than a 970.

Unless I missed a review in the last few hours(went to the gym for a few).

However, it turns out that only the more expensive 8GB version of the card (£215/$230) will feature 8GHz GDDR5, with the cheaper model featuring slower 7GHz GDDR5 for only 224GB/s of bandwidth. Even then, AMD isn't promising that all 8GB versions will feature the faster memory, saying that "you may see configurations that vary from our reference spec



Hmm...
aibs will create a custem clock for their cards?
NO WAY THIS NEVER HAPPENS

I am disappointed that it doesn't beat the 980, would have spent 299 for that alone but this is obviously meant for VR Gurus and as a upper mid range card for others.

Crysis 3 was really bad in the benchmarks but that is optimized for Nvidia

well it does beat it on dx12 (and its close on mantle powered catalyst)

GTX 970 was released in freaking 2014 and here comes AMD in 2016 with 14nm and barely beating it in performance and efficiency and price.

What a revolution AMD
LOL

Had high hopes when they said 2xRX480 > 1080

Ok people stop shilling (both camps ) and let's discuss why the card failed on p/w metric, because performance is what most of us expected.

some interesting points

it has 5.6bil transistors on 232mm (14nm) compared to 5 bil transistors on 355mm (28nm) that's like 71% more transistors/mm

GP104 vs GM204 - has 75.5% more t/mm.

isn't that weird? i mean 14nm supposed to be denser than 16nm. maybe another fail by glofo ?

also stop saying 980 is a better deal, even at same price it simply is not. maxwell is old discontinued and lacks better dx12 and vr support. its already maxed out and 480 will get better performance in future drivers and games. amd takes time. you are going to buy the card now for next 1-2 years. either get 480 or 1070. skip older maxwell unless it's alot cheaper than 480. even for aib versions at least wait, if anything 980's price will drop even more. so stop recommending that crap.

Probably one of the better video reviews so far. Very unbiased and in depth.
