Or did the aesthetics let you down? It's ok to prefer NVIDIA and it's also ok to only want their cards, it doesn't automatically make you a troll or a fanboy. You seem like a decent guy, just come out and hold your head high.

Why would you even be considering/dissapointed in the 480 if you're looking for 1070-tier performance? You're aware AMD aren't charging $400 + for the 480?

I've been talking about the low-tier battle, 480 vs 1060.

Edit:

The cheapest custom 1070 I've seen is $420.. You can CF 2 480's for less. People who are buying in that price range most certainly care about perf-per-$, in fact, it's the most important thing.

Kind of like it did a lot of people. 480 is all AMD has to compete with right now, so there was hope (on my part as well) that it could offer 980Ti performance even if AMD had to charge more for it. But AMD couldn't even deliver 980 performance.

Him and I have had pretty much the same thinking as of late, but both were disappointed again by AMD's lagging release schedule. We both had an itch to upgrade. So we wait until when exactly for Vega since that's the card we need from AMD to get the performance we both wanted/needed?


Well before the 10 series and RX series launched we didn't know what the performance was going to be. I am not disappointed in the performance value of the 480, just that AMD didn't offer something that was competitive with the 1070 and 1080. Until they were announced there was a lot of speculation that AMD was coming with a killer card, this is before we even knew it was a 480 and everyone was expecting a 490x.

I think you guys are reading into what I am typing with some sort of preconceived idea about my fanboyism.. Before the new cards launched I wanted to switch to AMD so I could get a freesync monitor.

its good but thats it
you are confusing Hitman with other DX12 games redface.gif

Hitman is the singular best case scenario of AMDs rolleyes.gif


of course the choice is limited since theres so little DX12 games and only in 2 of them does AMD have a real notable lead - Hitman and Ashes

Nope not really. I literally have no interest for any DX12 games at the moment. I just picked up Shadow of Mordor and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter during Steam summer sale. I play Fallout 4, FarCry 4 and Borderlands 2 from time to time. I rarely buy newly released games.

It is rather awesome to turn everything to Ultra in Shadow of Mordor with 150% scaling and have no performance issues. Plus it is a pretty fun game as well. IMHO biggrin.gif

You prefer
yeah since those are not nearly as good for GCN as Hitman or Ashes, especially at higher resolutions and in less CPU bound games then TW WH (you conveniently chose 1080p WH wink.gif )
