a few%? it blow away the 980 performance wise and the gap is only going to widen as more dx12 games comes along biggrin.gif
why buy old tech as the 980?

If I had a nickel for every "wait for the 480 and buy that" post in various GPU suggestion threads just on this site, I could buy a 1080.

If they were capable of such things they would be dominating the market without competition.

In RL some people dont have a spare £600 sat around for a GTX 1080 all the time, and if your one of those people its easy to rip on others for having to settle for less.  Im just interested and hopng the AIB 480s come out and then they overclock quite well in the hope that it will be a really good card for good money.

Part of the moaning is justfied. This card performed below peoples lowered expectations. That being this card performs well below an 980/390x and closer to a 970/390. Considering the die size of this thing for a finfet, this is the bare minimum to expect.

When any product performs at a level at a level that is near/below a pessimistic expectations, then as far as a product goes, it deserves some criticism. Add the power consumption is in line with a 1070 and you basically have to be worried for AMD graphic department.

AMD CPU started to come off the rails after conroe hit. The graphic division is starting to look similar.

How do you figure it'll blow away the 980 at 1500? Didn't and still am not advocating for the 980; merely using it as a reference point.
post #947 of 3674
If the custom 480 can oc up to 1500Mhz beating stock 980 it will be a really good deal for the moderate gamers especially looking at the future and dx12 where it beats 970 handily .It really needs to be priced at $280-$300 no more than that and i'm being generous here.I can find new 980ti for $450 and used for $50-80 less than that without ordering abroad.There aren't any noteworthy games during summer so the more sensible can wait to see how the landscape shapes in coming months.
post #948 of 3674
Are there any reviews that undervolted to see how low the card could go and maintain stock clocks?
Sorry AMD

The performance I actually kind of expected. I jumped off the hype train two weeks ago when I decided to get a 1070. But the power consumption blows my mind. I don't particularly care about power consumption, but the 480 pulling as much as a 1070 yet performing no where near it? Crazy.
