ANd the other funny thing, the most expensive 1070s don't perform ANY better than the cheaper ones. They all perform within a 3-5% of each other. OC included.

Compared to the GTX 1080 and the upcoming Titan XP, the 1070 is a pretty good value for money. Compared to the RX 480 or GTX 1060, though, you're right.

Notice how as the price increases, the value decreases. This is true for most markets (excluding bulk purchases).

Also doesn't apply to having kids and hospital bills.

If you're in the market of purchasing kids and hospital bills, video cards should be 3rd on your list of priorities. tongue.gif

Until the RX 480 custom cards emerged (couple days ago) the cheapest RX 480 and GTX 1060 were both priced to 269€ in central Europe. Now that the customs are available, Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB model sells for 249€, while the cheapest GTX 1060 still sells for 269€.

AMD lose this round
no OC = no buy
post #96 of 226
That's right because an oc midrange vc is not an oc enthusiast vc.

Let's buy a 970 and see if you qualify for a $30 class action refund.

Isn't the 1060 competing against the 8gb version?

They decided against a 3gb version so that gives the 480 the edge in skus.

Guys i would like to question you about Kit Guru. So far they have tests on the Asus Strix and Saphire Nitro RX 480's and i was trying to compare them.

Comparing OC abilities i think that it's based on the Chip and both AIB's should reach limits based on the chip itself. In the tests they reach similar clocks with Asus a bit ahead that is commented on by KG that is thanks to the Asus own software where the Nitro one is not yet available. So in my opinion it should be similar in terms of max OC and will be based on the chip & luck biggrin.gif

Now i am more interested in the difference of the cooling so i can decide what to buy for myself and for extended period of use.

In terms of Acoustics as stated from the KG reviews The Asus is louder by default but that's is due to target temperature set to 65 Quote: Noise dropped to 33.4 and 35.2 respectively in the load tests when the profile showed 75c. And that is the exact same that Nitro gets with 75C target profile.


Now here is the real difference - THE BACKPLATE

Considering that the Asus target temperature is set to 65 and gets lower temperatures overall. We can see from the above image from KG on both cards with extended period of playing Tomb Rider we get this that the Asus Backplate (that is full plate) gives out far bigger temperature spread but hold higher temperature while the Nitro one with a square cut just behind the processor doesn't spread that much the heat but has much lower temperature readings.

I know i should probably wait for other AIB cards to come out too but still Nitro looks better imo. biggrin.gif
If target temperature on Asus gets set to 75 in order to get equal noise then the backplate will look even worse biggrin.gif
Not to mention the Asus highest temperature looks like measured close to the PCI-E slot and that means heat transferred to the Motherboard too correct?

Computerbase.de tested PowerColor RX 480 Devil. Despite having three fans it is silent, but runs hot (80°C during gaming). Also there was no overclocking headroom over the stock frequencies (1330MHz) and the card even throttled at those clocks.
