AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 66

post #651 of 3674
I never for a second thought it would beat a 1070 but when the benchmarks showed it was give or take against the 970 I knew AMD was going to face the fire.

In all honesty they were really pushing this as a VR card and the press were running with another rhetoric. AMD probably got a massive discount price on old GDDR5 with GDDR5x and HBM becoming the new standard and decided this was their way in case the VR market gets big.

If this was loaded with 8GB HBM I think it would have been an excellent card, but would have drove it back up to the 300 USD or above which is a pricepoint mainstream people are picky with.

The silver lining to this is that I always see people on ebay pushing old used AMD/Nvidia cards for way too much and this might help enthusiasts get SLI/Crossfire setups going for cheaper in their rigs.

When I see stuff like the following it makes me sick

For a minute there I thought AMD was going to do something progressive & competitive. All they managed to do was push down the prices on old tech by $50. Sure it's more energy efficient but that's not enough to prompt me to buy a brand new card.

Thanks Nvidia for releasing incredibly overpriced cards out of my reach as my only upgrade path, and thanks AMD for making my current product of yours feel inferior without an alternative. /s

So what you are saying is both sides suck these days? I can def agree with that cheers.gif

Decent card for someone stuck with a GT 540 card or R7 360 or something. But for the rest its a huge meh card

i could post dozen of them but you get the point the card does perform around where amd said so between 970 and 980 often goes near the latter
now i dont know if your paycheck comes faster than your posts but just lol

I bought two, going to play with them until Vega comes out and then these will go in both of my kids computers replacing 750ti's.

Yeah I'm not a fanboy of either side, I've owned both products (actually own a GTX770 and R9 290X) and all I've noticed compared to the old days, is they both tend to neuter their new products from their full potential, in some cases rebrand new products, make obsolete with new drivers etc. Essentially what happens when you only have 2 companies.

I shouldn't need to pay $600-$700 to get 60FPS+ in 2.5k resolutions these days. It's 2016 FFS

So this card is no better than the GTX970. At least according to reviews, it puts it a little below that.

Yeah this is one of the biggest negatives I have against OCN in these kinds of threads. The lack of modding is hilarious, you can always expect some fanboy from either camp to start the war right off the bat and then the thread just becomes trash immediately.


On-topic, the card is performing pretty much as it was intended to. I also wish it was slightly better off because of architecture/node changes but I guess its a good start?

What a revolution AMD
LOL

Pretty much this

I bought a 970 on release for £232

Over 16months later

AMD releases a £219 card with 5% performance + or -

Awful.

Interesting how almost all reviewers are impressed with the card whereas on OCN it seems like people are trying their best to hate the card.
