It's an absolute joke the way people are reacting, it's no wonder there's so much garbage that gets spouted around the place and lies to stop people purchasing AMD cards.

Wow...yeah not impressed at all. My 290X seems to do just as well. Feel bad for everyone that sold off their 290's/390's/970's/980's for cheap expecting the 480 to kick those cards around some.

Yeah, anyone can say "well for the price it's not that bad!" but we all know we were expecting better performance than this.

Everyone fell for amd hype train lol

This card didn't meet my expectations. Sub par performance, bad thermals, loud blower cooler.

Its insane, AMD has not suggested once that this card was going to be a great overclocker or rival [Insert insane expectations here]

The only thing that I dont like about the card is that, from what reviews seem to show, the cooler is a bit louder than most and reaches high temparatures. Temparature doesn't seem to be an issue unless you're in a very hot climate however it does prevent good overclocking. (Overclocking suffers from the same fate as all GCN cards so it doesn't really matter) Noise might be an issue for the sensitive ones but this can be fixed with custom coolers.

It's essentially the same as the 970 in DX11 titles, however it offers up 980 or better performance in DX12 titles. I think once we start seeing some aftermarket cards with big overclocks, this card is going to do very well. Not to mention driver maturing will also see further improvement.

This card was never supposed to be a big upgrade for people with last years enthusiast cards, those with the 290/290X/390/390X need to wait for Vega, this is not surprising. It's targeted at the mainstream and let's people get excellent 1080P performance and a good VR experience for $199.

It got well over 5-10% gains from 100mhz OC. I'd love to see a water cooled variant.

No reason to make such a silly statement, people were expecting better than 980 performance not Titan X performance.

I was mistaken about the TDP but if this thing was touted as a 150w TDP card it isn't unreasonable for people think it would perform a little better given what nvidia has done with 16nm and 150w TDP.

the funny thing is today you can see a surge of reactivated accounts on the main review thread...
literally accounts that havent posted for 1-2 years are there commenting...
anandtech was banning those pr accounts like hotcakes a year ago

Exactly. The point I was trying to make was that given the amount of power the card draws (which has been shown to be more than both the 1070 and the 1080) the performance is extremely sedated. I'd imagine that when overclocked, this card will be drawing insane amounts of power (and generating a good bit of heat as a result) and that is my issue.

In terms of its price, if retailers keep the reference boards at MSRP and continue to do so with AIB boards, I think it's a decent card. I'm just a bit disappointed with the somewhat stagnant improvement in terms of the performance/watt (At least when I compare this card to equivalent TDP cards from NVidia)

Additionally, when I compare this card to an R9 380X (Which launched at the same price point as the 8 GB version) the performance jump is nothing to write home about. Though comparing it to a 380 yields better results, I'm just not entirely sure that the 380 is the card the RX 480 is replacing (Given the fact that no 480X has been announced)
