where do you even see them in PL ? I can't find a single one.

TBH I'm surprised seeing comments so far, I thought RX470 at $50 less than RX480 with 2048 cores and same 256-bit bus is gonna be the underdog and get more praise than rx480, especially considering it's clocked lower out of the box but reaches the same core speed as rx480 after oc so the only difference would be 250 sp units.

Why AMD, why? At $159.99 reference, with a max of $179.99 for AIB models this thing would reclaim a vast amount of marketshare from the GTX 1060 and put you on the map. Now with a reference price of $179.99 and AIB models coming in at a ridiculous $209 and $220, this is more like the real RX 480 and the RX 480 should be called the RX 480X.

This was supposed to be named and priced one tier below but be exceptional value for money because it would perform very, very well. With this price they just show that they don't know how to position themselves to storm the market. They aren't competing normally with Nvidia, they have to reconquer marketshare. How on earth do they think they are going to do it with this pricing strategy?

It's a "meh" card because of its price.

I don't understand. I really don't.

Yeah, at $150 this was a lot more tempting. Now they are either OOS or above 200.

I am not going to buy them in Poland. It is cheaper to get them from Germany.

150 would be to low from amd point of view. 170-180 is just about right seeing how little behind it is from rx 480

Can't compete with high end, so they have to compete with lower end

Yet they don't price their cards accordingly. :facepalm:

Consider they are OOS at the price of $180, I'd say the are priced just fine. If AIBs want to charge over $200 for it, that's their choice.

I don't understand. I really don't.

There are no reference designs for the RX 470. Cards are selling out at the moment, I guess the market will bear it. Also, I have suspicions that the RX 470 will become the goto card for GPU mining instead of the RX 480, and sellers are taking advantage of this.
