I believe we waited a lot more than "a little." We waited to the point where custom 1060s are out with stock on newegg that people can buy, and rx480 is still stuck at where it is right now.
you're clearly upset, you should wait it out and only then form your opinion. maybe go hibernate for a year or two while you're at it.

ETA's updated as I literally just ordered an additional 3000 units of Nitro cards, infact the Sapphire Nitro 4G and 8G OC are as of now OcUK's pretty much top selling cards out of all graphics cards. Sapphire are absolutely over the moon with this level of success as are AMD. smile.gif

But the Nitro at £199 and £250 is a serious incredible card that really just hits every mark, great looks, cool and quiet, tonnes of features, overclockable, great warranty. Gotta be one of the best all round cards of all time, absolutely nailed it! smile.gif

Next lot just shipped today, which was a further 60-100 units and hopefully more will ship this weekend.

AMD are also aware that we have nearly 10,000 units of RX 480 on backlog, of which Sapphire accounts for over 50%, as such AMD are also moving more GPU to fulfill OcUK PO's.

We are now no.1 in the world for RX 480 sales on an end-user based level. Right now we are actually turning away mining orders on RX 480 to ensure it is gamers getting first dibs.

As mining is kicking off again on RX 480, but we are refusing to take orders until there is enough stock to cope with gamers and mining demand, gamers come first. smile.gif

In the end it is what the market needs is competition! smile.gif

not sure about cool - saw the Nitro hitting 80C in one of the reviews

though that depends on ambient and case airflow ofc

Not quiet either, it needs around 2200 RPM fan speed to keep 75C. It is hard to exist next to something like this even with headphones biggrin.gif

But the hype is on, price is good for 4 GB model, and there are no other custom cards available for now, and good ones like MSI will surely charge a lot, so it is possible that 480 Nitro is selling well.

I for one am perfectly fine with waiting. I have not nor will ever jump the gun to pay early adopter taxes. I will wait for bugs to be fixed and prices to settle. Maybe even for incentives to be added. There's nothing that good here (most places actually) that I must have it now. But ofc I guess to each their own.

there is a Gigabyte 480 announced - it will probably be cheaper than MSI 480


Asus will have a 480 too, though I personally just dislike Asus in general

Dunno that TPU review is suspicious to me. Don't know what W1zzard was thinking claiming it can only OC 3% and his power draw chart is also very different to KitGuru's.

And Buildzoid just did a PCB analysis and pointed out something I havent seen anyone else make mention of yet, the Strix has not only voltage read points that are easily accessible, but overvoltage points as well. So far the Stris is the only card we know of that supports memory overvolting through an easily accessible point. We dont have memory voltage control in software and we dont really have bioses yet so that makes this the easiest way to adjust voltage for memory overclocks.

Link to Buildzoids PCB breakdown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3QDevWleVY

The only thing I was worried about was the rating of those fancy mosfets but I see they are good. Once they are out I'm planing to strap on a Kraken G10 + Corsair H55 and some heatsinks to this and see where I end up thumb.gif Hope those overvoltage points work.
post #759 of 860
so kitguru's overvolted strix draws less power than tpu's not overvolted one and you suspect tpu's review is fishy

Custom 1060s are $249 and are in shops for a week or more already? Of course the first batch is sold out so now it's preorders that are getting fulfilled as more cards arrive to shops.
Some countries do have $239 reference crap 480 but many don't and are priced quite higher.

Not matter which one is chosen at $250 or less both are a decent buy.
