More people would've gone for Fury X had it had the custom air solution. same goes for the Titan. an upgrade from a blower card would've helped with temps and also without the hassles of AIO.

What hassles of rad?

I have not touched mine since I installed it.

You nailed it. Exactly as this slide says.


But why spend 100, 200, 300 dollars / euro / gbp for the same performance? Why not stay with what I have? Thats his point and its a valid point.

I see no reason to upgrade from even a 290, 580 8GB is 15% better at most, and the mighty old 290 can easily close that gap with OC
I'd love to see how an AIB 580 does against my 1200/1600 290 tongue.gif

A 580 isn't going to be a worthy upgrade over my 290x by a long shot (unless it was $50.00), especially at 1440p+ or if you like AA as with even a remotely decent oc a 290x will be faster at those resolutions.

970 has definitely seen better days at this point, though. Still probably wouldn't upgrade to a 580 from it.

Agreed, I won't be upgrading from my 290 (non-X) to a 580. My buddy on his 280X though, perfect upgrade.

Anyone who was willing to outlay the cash on a 290 or greater in the pre- RX 480 days are most likely looking in the $300+ range I would think, and are waiting for Vega. At least that is what I'm doing.

AMD is marketing these cards for Ryzen builds. They are offering an inexpensive multicore CPU without an integrated GPU and need an inexpensive dGPU to go with Ryzen for a balanced and affordable system. Thus why they compared the 550 to an IGP. I upgraded from an APU to a Ryzen build with a Polaris card and there are many out there with APUs in their system. This setup is perfect for my HD monitor and inexpensive.

Even from 280X is not really needed unless you want to do 1440p. Its a upgrade for sure but not that big of an upgrade.
