AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 67

And it's no just here, it is in every forum. The fanboy arguments have gotten completely insane. Hell, I call myself an AMD fanboy... I've only always owned ATi/AMD cards. However, when someone asks for my advice on what to buy, they want top tier, and they have a bunch of money to spend, I point them to Nvidia... at least in the past couple years anyway. Funny enough, yesterday, a very frugal friend of mine said he wanted to upgrade his 270 and he was looking at $260 390s and 970s. I said, "Check out the RX 480 at 6am. You'll get that performance and save a bit on power for $200." and that was was that. I'd say my advice was completely reasonable.

Is it that hard to see reason? I have a hard time believing there are grown men spewing fanboy logic all day... It's one of those things where I'd like to interview one, in person, to get a good measure of what kind of person they really are.

im interested to see where the RX 470 is priced at, it actually might be the budget card everyone buys.

Most good 980 are 400-450
AIB 480s will cost around 300

So a 980 is 30%-50% more expensive and its not faster even by 20% so what is the problem?

Cheapest 980 is 300 and cheapest 480 is 200 which means even the cheapest 980 is still 50% more expensive than the cheapest 480.

Cheapest 980 will perform as good as the most expensive 480 while costing the same, Problem?

Well the 1080 thread was derailed/trolled pritty hard by a few, it's every forum/thread. Not many can be objective about the things they own/ are invested in.

its almost like they are in denial of the fact that this card replaces 380/280x... biggrin.gif

I'm so happy I curbed my enthusiasm. As I expected, 970 performance for a cheap price.
post #668 of 3674
driivers do make a BIG differnce want proof? someone with a gtx970 install the drivers it came with at launch to the rx480, thumb.gif LAUNCH driver VS LAUNCH driver, i suspect the 480 SMOKES the 970 then, also compare launch 970 drivers vs drivers its on now i suspect differnce will be pretty big thumb.gif

It's also good to bear in mind the pricing of these once they go on the used market. I could see an RX480 for $160-$170 on craigslist being quite a steal.

It's not even the 980 they are competing against tbh, they are competing against themselves I.e the 390(with a free game) or used 390x's which can be had for the same price as the 480 here in the uk.
