Wow. Bitcoins just crashed due to a hack, but they'll recover. I bought about 100 (EDIT: it was 100 lol) coins back in the day when they were like $.40 cents. Everyone told me I was bat****, but what the ****, it was like $40, who cares. Sold 'em for $400 each. Paid my student loan with the profit. I'm sure I funded some sort of paramilitary effort in doing so.

Did you look at charts from any other reviewer? TPU charts are way off from anyone else's. You literally get about 97% of the 480 for between $180-220.

I've read like 6+ reviews along with some 480 along side to compare apples to apples cards from same AIB and VRAM etc.
I guess make 10 reviews by now. Just Guru3D has 3 for 470s.

The worst AIB hands down is Sapphire, greedy as hell with a poor design (cooling, ports, power consumption).

People saying $180 is a good price yet...

They said these cards would be $150 and since there are no ref cards that means the aibs are the ones that should be $150 not $180~$230

Why is everyone forgetting this?

I think the main issue with pricing recently isn't actually the pricing per se, but the naming. If this were the rx480 in name, and the actual 480 never existed, reception would be different. That's why nvidia adding titan and ti was pretty genius. They're charging per performance regardless of naming anymore.

But yes the price over msrp isn't great. At $150 I would expect customs around 170-190, they're pushing it a bit far but it's probably due in part to availability, and in part that aibs are getting down right greedy this gen

Edit: I also don't believe this is the full lineup of cards that will be released. Usually have multiple tiers per aib, powercolor for instance only has the devil so far which is it's high end card usually

From what I was told, the $149 was only speculation and AMD never confirmed that as the starting price.

However, if you have hard evidence that this is not the case, I will gladly take your word over some people on reddit smile.gif

Something is going on with TPU recently. They had wrong calculations and performances are strange....
post #79 of 437
Did AMD ever confirm a $150 MSRP though? Someone asked me this and I couldn't find a published source from AMD.

No, the Asus card. Both TPU and Toms have Asus cards that are significantly slower than everything else.

Damn sure there's no way I'm paying $270 for a nitro 480 now lol
I simply think there are more 470 viable chips available than 480. The 470 is a cut down 480. So if they're having a few yield issues, a bunch of the would-be 480s are being sold as 470s. It's likely they will have more stock of the AIB 470 compared to the AIB 480 for quite a while...
