On what card? I have cards that get to ~70c minimum over the whole back surface of the card. You derate for worst case scenarios.

It's too expensive! Err...wait it's actually reasonably priced. Nevermind

It's not powerful enough! Err....It's actually good performance at that pricepoint. Nevermind

It's a botched launch! Err...They actually have good stock for launch day. Nevermind

The performance/watt is not as good as Nvidia. AH HA! OMG AMD is doomed! Worst launch in history! Hear that internet? I don't like something!

Some of these arguments are stretched sooo thin. The 1080 thread, a discussion for the currently most powerful gaming GPU, was full of penny pincers and now this thread is full of power efficiency aficionados.

God damn this is spot on, well done sir.

Same performance as a 18month old nvidia GPU with only 25w less power draw

AT THE SAME PRICE POINT CURRENTLY

Remember that this repalces 380, not 390/290. Yet does better at the reference design.

I can go on and on and on. ]You were warned not to belive in rumors and now you are psycologically damaged]. there is a reason why I posted ZERO messages in rumor threads. Your problems ar your own.

You are comparing a discontinued card that is on closeout pricing to a new card. Come back and show me all these cheap 970s in about 3 weeks when they are all gone.

omg rekt omg

meanwhile 380 was what 20% less than 970?
480 comes closes that gaps and actually goes slightly faster
people loose their minds expecting a 1080 killer for a led bulb wattage

This pretty much.

Some people around here can't get it through their head that this card is a Pitcairn replacement.

Would have been nice if AMD managed to trim another 20% power from retail cards but oh well.

Because the "25X supply of 1080" hype/rumor is a lie like everything else spewed here and gobbled up without thought.

I think the funny thing is the same exact situation happened with the gpu he uses in his build. the 280/285/280x were for the most part cheaper than the 960 on release, perform better as well, but they were being phased out as the 960 launched.
