Either way, much smarter to wait a bit, though I'll be super happy if this sells well, Nvidia will need to respond.

So, the 480 will be a sidegrade for most people but the 1060 wont be? Ok.

People hoped for more. The RX 480 is no embodiment of 2 years of progress we hoped for.
Your reasoning is flawed. The fact that performance was already aviable is irrelevant if the price is not the same.

Right now,on alternate.de the 4 GB version is sitting at 219 EUR. Have you ever seen a GTX 970 at that price? Not even now,not even pre-Pascal announcement.

So the 970 might lose by 5% now. But give it a couple years, and it will be losing by about 30% if not more.

Ja,they call it future proof. wink.gif

at 1080p gaming I would say yeah probably best just going for the 4gb one. I am at 1440p so would be best for me to get 8gb

Very interested to see what the AIB partners come up with , 8gb nice factory overclock and nice cooler is what I am after. Chip itself seems great

where are the times when amd's x90 card can compete with nvidia's x80 card ? I can't see that happen ATM

290X>780
390X=980

The Nvidia conspiracies that they were crippling performance on previous gen card? They weren't entirely without merit. I don't think it was intentionally crippling them per se but rather failing to optimize and focusing on the current-gen stuff instead. Meanwhile, AMD continues to optimize their GPUs regardless of age. Take a look:

-Graph-

The 270X vs the 760 is the most interesting case since it's over the longest time and has GPUs from the same tiers as the 970, 1070, and RX 480 competing. In 2.5 years, AMD drivers have managed to - assuming Nvidia drivers did absolutely nothing for or against the 760 - give about 40% extra performance for free to 270X owners.

So the 970 might lose by 5% now. But give it a couple years, and it will be losing by about 30% if not more.

Where did those numbers come from and what was the metric used to measure performance? I bet there is some interesting data behind that chart.

If the 1060 keeps up as well as the 1070 kept up with the 1080...well you get the idea. Either way, no reason to not wait for the 1060.

Well at least you're getting 8GB of ram not 3.5

right?

Also, I won't be at all surprised if the 490 is competitive with the 1080.

Alright, seeing your edit I see what you mean... sort of. The difference in performance between 390/390x/980 is relatively small in many games, though.

With these power numbers, it looks like AMD should have made a "wider" chip with slightly lower clocks. Probably could have hit 980 performance at 130w. Perhaps they were banking too much on higher clocks that never materialized.
