AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 87

This card is shattering the price per performance mark, and everyone is disappointed? I really dont understand OCN sometimes...


*edit: found some on amazon for $475.00

Maybe because the average has it more rivaling a 970 and not a 980? Also let's not forget that maxwell is amazing at ocing.

first time I heard this

was sure AMD was going solely with GloFo 14nm for all their 2016/2017 GPUs


anyone know ?

Well, to be fair, only on certain games AND certain settings will more VRAM start to matter.

I am an optimist lol. I see 2 or 3 benches matching it so i assume the potential is there we just need the drivers to be as well.

and i mean $229... come on... I feel like its a steal.

So I got a question for everyone. Since when did mid to low tier GPUs out perform the mid/high end of last generation. I dont remember GTX 960 being as good as GTX 780? It seems the hype for new tech at a low price had blinded many people, though I cant say I blaim them since initially it was touted as a GTX 980 level gpu.

980 is EOL. If you were familiar with EOL Nvidia cards, you will see they rarely get price drops. Current price of the 980 is irrelevant when you can get a 1070 or a 980 Ti cheaper.

660 Ti was faster than GTX 580
7870 was faster than 6970

and so on

Uhhh well, i would have to go with one of the best selling GPU's of all time, a card that the rx 480 is disappointingly going toe to toe with in all metrics other than price...... the gtx 970. Pretty much matched a 780ti.
Sorry AMD

I don't remember that. It was supposed to be disruptive to the GPU culture in a way it will increase marketshare in the mid-range price bracket. Basically single monitor 1080P-1440P users.  I do agree AMD never intended for this to be a high end killer.
