That Asus RX480 looks nice too.

I'm going to assume that it's going sag like most cards like this. That irritates me to no end LOL.

You got that right! Meanwhile the 480's competition released today with reference and AIB. I'm sure that had to have cost AMD some sales.

IDK, The 1060 AIBs are in the mid $300 range. Of course the only available 480s are too.

I would have bought a 480 day one, but newegg couldn't get them listed correctly and by the time they did, they were sold out. I think I'm better off waiting for a Nitro or another AIB anyway.

I bet their employee count has been reduced a little today and the price of body bags has raised. If there is a prize for PC hardware fails AMD deserves it all the way. Their cards are not even selling at MSRP here, they are hiked and no one wants them. Meanwhile Nvidia brings a few 1060s at MSRP, lower price than 480s, higher performance, it's a no brainer really. If nGreedia can keep those cheap 1060s in stock, AMD is not gonna have anyone to sell those 480s to, period. Even from benchmarks with OCed 480 it can't keep up with a less power hungry 1060, it just barely matches it with the OC to a nonOC 1060...
They truly failed with the launch and having 480 voltage up at 1.15V instead of 1.05V and still being clock limited to around 1250MHz. Meanwhile Pascal cards all clock to 2000MHz on boost and some can keep that high clock all the time, where as 480 without aftermarket cooling can't even keep the stock 1266 boost.

I can't wait to hear what the silly Sapphire will pull from their sleeve this Sunday, what excuses they will have for this crap late launch and getting stomped by 1060 across the board in current titles. The Polaris 10 is a good chip but it doesn't clock and is power hungry compared to Pascal on top of that the crappy board and custom card launch execution. Fail upon fail.

480s not selling at msrp where you are has nothing to do with amd. That is whoever is selling them trying to squeeze ppl for what stock is left. They are still cheap here in the US IF you can get it in stock. 480 for here is still much cheaper than a 1060 6gb. Yes the 1060 is faster and more power efficient i cant argue that. But you pay more for it. As for the late release of aib's i dont think there is an excuse to make up the loss they will probably take for waiting. But on that note if it will hang with a 1060 and still be 40-50$ cheaper... ill still buy it.

I sadly have to agree Jack. The RX480 is great but the 1060 is ready now with AIB too.

Sure they're sold out, both parties are. But we got a shot of the 1060 pricing at $309 and under. The AMP is $280...

We don't know the prices of the AIB RX 480 but based on the price of the reference 480 8gb it's not looking good.

Perhaps AMD will just sell the 480 for less than they intended. AIB starting at $200 up to $240? Unless you're super pumped about Doom performance, I see no reason to go RX480 now. Vulkan is excellent but it'll be awhile before it takes off.

I think the wise choice is to wait for the custom 480's. If the custom 1060 had markedly better performance in dx11 and similar in dx12, I can understand why someone would make that purchase.
