You mean the non issue? Trigger me timbers.

It is an issue. Hardware issue controlled with software biggrin.gif Not quite same but 1070 1080 dpc latency is an issue too. That's why I'm waiting on AIBs because whoever mentioned slot issue will probably test it again with the non-fix driver biggrin.gif (6 pin reference vs 8 pin aib)

Pricing here is really bad.

AMD's 480 is also priced pretty steep here.
Ya, the AMD custom board partners pricing in EU is pathetic and they don't even care. They know it but they sell so much they don't give a damn. Once the preorders end and they are able to produce enough cards than the demand they will be surprised... that many went to nGreenia because their cards are at MSRP around here and cheaper and faster and run cooler and consume less power, ...

I find the RX 480 unimpressive as well. It should have had more ROPs or more efficient ROPs and higher efficiency overall. 6+ GB for $200 at current clock limited performance, would be fine, but 8GB for $300? The performance ain't that good for a $300 card. And it takes them forever to launch any cards, one still can't buy a decent 480 at all around here in EU. Even official distributors have no idea when cards will be available. AMD custom board partners are slow as hell.

The RX 480 should have been performance wise between 1060 and 1070 if they want to keep the current high and crappy pricing. But it is on par with 1060 while being hotter and more power hungry...

AMD needs to optimize the GCN and bring power consumption down.

This is one of the most popular online stores (as well as physical) Cheapest Rx480 is as you can see $291.96 excluding vat. 344.5 including VAT. 344 and a half horny bucks !!!!!

Sapphire reference card has 14 reviews with 4.2/5 score. $344.5
MSI reference has 28 reviews with 3.4/5 score. Matching price with Sapphire.
Asus reference has 29 reviews with 2.7/5 score. $376 including vat.

RX 480 apparently (not always) sold 71(probably half) reference cards on that site only and has 3.46 score out of 5.

What exactly do you propose AMD do about price gouging in EU? Lol should they just buy all the shops and sell direct or what?

The only thing I know on pricing in eu is what has been posted before and both sides seem to be pretty equally overpriced, so because of that AMD should have priced lower just for you guys or made their good value card perform between two more expensive models yet charge the same. I feel for you all in EU, but its getting old. Perhaps stop complaining about the company that makes the chip and sells it to board partners which then sell the cards to your local shops, and complain to your local shops that you're tired of them taken advantage of you or just stop buying from them all together. Or complain to your government about their tax policies. Its no more AMD's fault then it is mine or yours.

Where the heck are you getting those numbers? 2304SP is ~60% of 1080 already. ~100 CU would match the Titan XP easily.

edit: nvm, math fail

yeah 480 is ~57-58% of 1080 - https://i.imgur.com/7Jp9PKV.png

Why is 480's reference cooler so crappy !
Do i really have to wait till 2017 to get a card with some proper power or will i have to go with Nvidia again ! (wich i dont really want to becuase of latency/price/dx12)
Still waiting for Sapphire Vapor-X RX480 or toxic. Nitro seems meh.

AIB RX480 pricing seems very meh, 1060 AIB is priced very competitive, at the same price, 1060 is consistency faster and overall quicker in DX11 games. This makes buying any AIB 480 very hard choice.

By Oct AMD AIB need to sort this out or I am getting 1060. lol

How come that everytime when we talk about OC on AMD cards people look at base clock out of the box including max boost speed and how much you can OC that instead of looking at reference base clock without boost speed like everyone does with Nvidia.

Basicly everyone says a 980ti can OC for 30~40%, because here they do look at reference base clock without boost.
Yet my 980ti boost to 1392mhz out of the box and can only OC to 1450mhz.
Now people do this with 1070/1080 to but still AMD overclocks can only be calculated by out of the box max boost speed ? (Factory OC included wich you cant include when its a Nvidia card)
A 1080 can boost to like 1890mhz stock yet we look at OC's from 1733 or even the base of 1600mhz, on average they run 2050mhz overclocked.
1890mhz to 2050mhz is an amazing overclock all of the sudden ?
Its only like 7~8%


RX480 base clock is 1120mhz so why dont we calculate OC percentages based on that like everyone does with Nvidia cards ? ( not that i think you should, should look at max boost clock IMO)
Boost out of box is 1266mhz.
1266mhz to 1390mhz is how many % ?
More then the 7~8% Nvidia cards do !

By these wierd standards people are using by default AMD cards will always be poor overclockers.

Offcourse everyone will say i am wrong but when i use the same method with Nvidia cards people say i am wrong to. (and wrong again when i use Nvidia so called method on AMD cards)
Why cant OC percentages be calculated the same way no matter if its Nvidia or AMD ?

Remember the DPC latency thread where you refused to put a screenshot up of your so called card that so called didnt have any stutters or what so ever (yes you said it spiked up to 500us but never any proof)
Then as soon as Nvidia came out with a hotfix you had to post a screenshot..... double standards much ?

Why arent you a member of the 1080club yet ?
Hard time proofing you actually have one ?

My eyes burned like if someone placed fire cigars on my pupils because EXPOSED.

I remember Chev saying the DPC latency problem wasn't an issue, in many other unrelated threads when someone mentions the DPC thingy he just winks out of his way to smokescreen this issue.

Love it when people calls out these double standards.

Now more on topic, anyone have benchmarks for the RX 480 Devil? That was one badass looking card.
