AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 97

post #961 of 3674
Some UK shop price for the 8GB Sapphire Radeon RX 480 was £219.95 now it's £233.40. Damn these cards price is slowly rising. Now i wander how much the AIB cards will cost in the UK.

wait a week. Let the marked fill up. Price will come down soon enough when shops will have supply of them and they stop selling like mad. Then you will even start seeing some discounts :>

Best would be to wait for 1060. First because we will know how it performs, and second it will put a pressure on amd and nvidia to fight eachother. Now all market is screwed because both companies dont have similar producs. Nvidia holds top performance atm, and AMD have midrange covered.

This is an interesting turn of events...

Here in Australia the cheapest 480 the 4 gb model retails for $319 and the one of the cheapest 480 8GB models are $379..

that almost comes in at $70-100 cheaper than the run out 970 models and is cheaper than both the 980/ti by $200..

It also is cheaper than both the 390 and 390x by a slim margin which sort of quantifies the price.


On the other hand a pair of them is $758...even a fraction cheaper than a 1070 (well some of the models) and a pair of them are $442 cheaper than a 1080..
this is a hard call...

I think the price to performance here in Australia is right on the mark,,, and even better if paired up in CFX...

regardless of what people think , this is a mainstream card that competes with the higher end mainstream of the 390/390x reasonably well considering that some of thise cards still sell for a bit.

Yeah i will wait and see how much the AIB cards cost first. Now i think back i should have kept that 970 and put that in my other rig. Rather then thinking of putting a 480 there instead.

It's not what I would have hoped for but it's a decent card for what it is, and an AIB model could be fun to play with if additional power and better cooling help in that regard (and they should).

I won't pretend to be awed by the card or say it's all I had hoped a node shrink and improved arch would bring but I also find some of the naysaying to be a bit ridiculous, especially before the AIB models. I'll also speculate that the greatest portion of the market for this card doesn't comment for hours on threads like these. They're probably just now replacing their 660 Ti and thinking 'wow, 8Gb and 970 plus performance, $200!? tits!'

that is exactly the crowd AMD is targeting and it looks like it is working quite well for them smile.gif

here 2x 480 8GB = ~600 EUR, maybe a little less
1x 1080 = 730+ EUR

and your definition of "as fast" is radically different from anyone elses lol .. CF dun got smacked

True never thought of it like that, think alot of us are sad now that the realization has set in that amd probably wont compete with nvidia this year allowing nvidia to keep on with the greed editions meaning us at the top end need to sit on maxwell or pay stupid prices(which I refuse).

It'll be very interesting to see what 2-4 newer drivers do after release... Looks like some games could definitely see a big boost in performance hopefully...
post #970 of 3674
I'm surprised this thread doesn't have a link to this possibly game changing rumor. One that possibly could damage your motherboard and/or void its warranty.

[Redit] RX 480 violates the PCIe specification and draws too much power.
