AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 77

post #761 of 3674
Was going to buy 2 rx 480's....... but like.... they are 329 CAD, and I can find gtx 1070's for mid-low $500's..... Haven't had an Nvidia card since the 8800gt....... To betray, or not betray.....
Sorry AMD

People like to play at the highest settings and a 8gb one will let you do that . Think it's best to wait to see what AMD's partners come up , we will get a Tri-X one from Sapphire , that is what my 290x is and it's pretty awesome never goes above 80c in a tiny case and it's really quiet.

My biggest issue with this card, power consumption and efficiency of the future fury replacement. If this mediocre cards eats as much as a 1070 then how much will the next AMD 14nm high end card eat to match the 1080? 350W?

Over 700 cards sold out.

Over 700 now, I expected good sales, but this is beyond my expectations for day one. Several lines have sold out infact.

I see competitors have also moved prices on 8Gb part up so I guess they are low on stock, I reckon I can hold my 8GB pricing as I did have well over 1000 units in stock for launch.

Shame on the 4GB part though, going to push AMD hard to manufacturer more, or put 8GB cards in 4GB boxes haha

I see it as a strange card. I can't help but wonder why AMD bothered even making a new card that was so close to their existing ones in performance. Seems to me they could have simply doubled the RAM on the 290X and it would have essentially been the same thing. In fact I can't help but wonder why it has 8GB of RAM when it clearly lacks the performance and bandwidth to actually make use of it in high resolutions. 8GB is hardly necessary for 1080p playing.

 

Hm, that depends on where you are I suppose. The 970 is still more expensive where I live, and offers less performance at 1080p even with the obvious issues and traditional terrible AMD launch drivers. This is also a card meant to grow the TAM. Whether or not that is realistic is another question. But for those purposes offering a card that can play new games at 1080p and has a bigger VRAM number than the competition, a less knowledgeable consumer new to PC gaming is probably going to pick the cheaper card with the bigger VRAM number. 'Coz that has to be good, right? I don't think it's a perfect card at all but I see where they were going. Whether or not that was the best choice is still up in the air but they needed to try something different because losing to Nvidia's newest thing on launch day and then catching up 6 months later with nobody 're-reviewing' the cards was just not working out for them. They don't have the money to square off with Nvidia like that. So I see what they were going for and for the sake of the market I hope it works out for them.

If Nvidia ends up pricing the 1060 at $250 or less, it's going to make this card obsolete, as I'm willing to bet it'll destroy the 480 on performance in every aspect. Either way, much smarter to wait a bit, though I'll be super happy if this sells well, Nvidia will need to respond.
you really dont understand why this card exists in the first place...

this is nvidia themselfs saying that

I just dont think reference cards will have the grunt to make use of all 8gb without crossfire.

Seems too power hungry, while an improvement indeed it's now in the Maxwell kind of efficiency and it shows that AMD doesn't have the insane $ for R&D to make more frequent updates to the architecture.
32 ROPS is IMHO a fail and it should have had at least 48, 64 preferred.

Overall it's a decent card once AIBs come out with better PCB and cooling design but it lacks that 1 step of R&D IMHO that AMD didn't invest into or focused elsewhere. I would have rather seen no Fury and have better 4xx series instead.
As long as price stays low it will sell.

960 was a piece of overpriced crap compared to AMD mainstream cards so it remains to be seen if/when and at what price/performance the 1060 will be available.

Some say that RX480 is a side grade, that may be so for OCN members but for general population it is a definitely upgrade to a very good price/performance card that brings previous generation high end performance down into mainstream prices and mainstream power requirements.

The fact that its 32 ROPs are hanging with R9 290/390 which have 64 ROPs...
