The RX 480

- is not in the 970 market bracket
- replaces the 380x/960 which it is MUCH faster than
- is as fast or faster than the 970 in almost every game, in 3 or 4 traditional nvidia leading games the 970 edges it out by ~3fps
- destroys the 970 in DX12 if relevant to you
- is cheaper than the 970

Please be so kind as to point out how this card is late to the party when it isn't in the same market segment as the 970.

Apparently the AIB cards are proving to be much better overclockers, going hang in there for another few weeks and see what is on tap from Sapphire, MSI and Asus. This card will look a lot different above 1.5ghz, I just hope the prices stay under $260. I don't believe that the 970 really had any reference cards, most of us buy AIB cards, so these reference results will mean little to nothing in a few weeks like they always do.

I bought the card, upgrading from the 280x, and I'm sure I'll be more than pleased tomorrow afternoon. I'm who this card was intended for. It was never marketed to be a "980" killer. Hell, it's not even in the same market segment as the 970 but it beats/nearly beats it in every title (not to mention the dx12 crushing). I'd say this card hit its intended mark. Those saying otherwise believed false rumors and/or had unreasonably high expectations, or you're cherry-picking from reviews that may/may not have come on the proper drivers. A lot of you are so knee-jerk it makes my brain bleed.

I guess that's because actual information on performance is under NDA pre-launch so like Nvidia, they cannot normally comment on nor debunk rumors.

It seems more to me that AMD's marketing and PR machine cannot always control what their sponsored advocates and fans say based on the hype and expectations that their official press releases generate. Another thing is that I think, a lot of people just want AMD, the the underdog to beat Nvidia which is why these "unreasonable" performance expectations arise from their fandom.

No reason to have two threads on 480 reviews and split discussion. Continue in [Various] thread which also includes this review here.
