So I was thinking hard about RX 480 8GB + aquacomputer waterblock, that would come out to maybe about $250+$120 = $370. For $379 I can get an XFX Fury X which is already water cooled, albeit by an AIO. That doesn't seem bad at all. What do you guys think? I know power will be higher with Fury X than RX 480 but that will still be less than my 1000MHz GTX 580 is pulling. biggrin.gif

I intend to get either a 1440P ultra wide or a 4K screen within the next year or so. I'm on 1080P right now so I figure picking up a Fury X for that price might not be a bad idea until an HBM2 product. (I planned on an RX480 also holding me over till an HBM2 card.)

Thanks!! Was having trouble finding BF3 numbers for it. thumb.gif

Its different technology, and price of course - I think the RX 480 its a good option for DX 12 and 1440p and in a future you can put a Crossfire - For example i buy a AIO water for CPU and put it in the RX 480 reference OC to 1400 mhz.-

Yes the FPS was in Battlefield 4 but its the same usually.-

It depends on what resolution you run and how much game vram usage goes up in the near future. Right now 4gig is the sweet spot but a few games are starting to exceed it here and there or see a performance benefit from doing so by putting more resources in memory. The rx 480 right now even under water does not beat the fury x in most resolutions. Even with my 1435 I'm closer to the performance of a Fury not the Fury X. I'm above at 1080p, about at the performance at 2k and below at 4k. On the current drivers anyway that's the way things are. For the money the FuryX is a great option for current games at that price. I already had a custom loop so any video card would have to have had a water block. So a Fury x would have been $500 once you add in the block for me. XSPC makes a $70 block for the rx 480 but it doesn't actively cool the VRMs. But you'd be in no worse situation than a AIO Mod or generic GPU only block. GekoTDF thinks going above 1400 is bad news, so in the real world you may not quite be able to beat the Fury let alone the FuryX. But then there's the extra video ram and the possibility of future driver improvements and the reduced power usage. So I don't know. It depends on what's important to you and what resolution you run I guess. The Fury X is a sexy card at 379. If the 1070 actually sold for it's MSRP, it wouldn't be quite so interesting however. I'm still hopeful we'll get a performance bump in the next few driver releases so the situation could change. I'd love to see how well the Alphacool block cools the 480 compared to the EK block. You know of any reviews?

Is two fans version much better than one fan version in general? I mean everything like noise, heat, durability, speed.

Not always. Depending on the card, a nice 100mm fan card could be much better than a dual 80mm fan card.

In general, though, they are setup so that the fans are run slower while providing more air, but you really have to check out the reviews.

Most of those games doing that don't see any real notable increase in visual fidelity they just use an obnoxious amount of Vram. Evolve for example can use alot of vram at very high texture settings but visually there is little to no difference in quality vs medium. SoM High vs Ultra is the same thing, just using stupidly large textures for no reason at all.

If textures are done right and compression is good there no reason to go beyond 4gb at 1080 or 1440p.

Considering the prices match up almost 100% identical across the board, I'd go with the GTX 1060 6GB.

AMD really dropped the ball on this one... Tried to take the $200 GPU slot and lost it to the 1060. I have a feeling vega is going to be an even bigger letdown...

Theyre close enough in performance that its up to preference and if dx12 matters to you or having more vram. They didn't really loose anything and if anyone thought that nvidia wasnt gonna retaliate with the 1060 they'd be kidding themselves. Both cards selling well, it's a win for consumers on performance and power for both cases, once prices settle then on price too.

Unless you have to get a card right now it's always a good idea to wait a few months for price and availability to even out

1060 has more than double the market share... (1060vs480, not nvida vs amd) I don't consider that selling well, especially when it took so long for the AIB 480's to be released...
