a 1200mhz 280x is well enough for ultra 1080p 60fps
at that speed it's at most 20% slower than a 480, not worth the updrade, yeah
I went from a 1150mhz 7970 to a 1150mhz 290 and only see a 20-30% fps boost

Yup, my old 7970GE to this day ( in my brother's pc) runs 1200mhz core / 1600mem and is great for 1080p. I replaced it with my 290x when it launched in oct 2013 and it was worth it for the better high res performance and extra 1gb of vram. Tahiti and Hawaii have both held up really well.

Tahiti is Legendary but AMD is starting to pull support from it. In a lot of new games it's actually falling to Kepler level of performance.

Not really. I still game a lot of times on a reference 7970. The support is just fine and the performance is really good for 1080p but on the new games you can choke the card with the 3gb buffer. My 1250 mhz 7970 should be as fast as a 780 which is awesome. Also if kepler level of performance you mean 780ti performance then its fine for me... If you mean 680 then you have no idea

Haven't see that yet on any of my games
BF1, Ultra SP 60-75fps
ME Catalyst Ultra-High mix 55-75fps
ME Andromeda High-Med mix 50-65fps
RE7 max 70-90fps
Only thing holding it back is the 3GB buffer, not the GPU itself
HardwareUnbox test the 1050ti vs 680 vs 7970 which 7970 win only on 1-2 games with a slim margin, which seems very fishy
when I upgrade from 670 to 7970 I saw a very big jump in almost all games, like 15-20%

Show us proof you can max out modern games at 1080p at 60fps average or you're just trolling with your 280x claim.

If rx 480 is not great, how is the rebranded 7970 aka 280x better?

Yeah. I watched that video. HD 7970 pulled ahead ~ 2015 but in 2016 and 2017 it not doing that great compared to GTX770.

From 280x to rx480:

1. Significantly faster card
2. True midrange card with significantly lesser power draw and heat.
3. Does not need beefy cooler because 280x is not really midrange chip. It's a rebrand after all.
4. Dx12
5. 8gb


So yeah rx 480 is not a great upgrade from 280x just like someone is claiming.

Rx480 to rx580 is not worthy upgrade. Same feeling I have from 7870 to 280x.

I usually upgrade midrange cards every new series. I started from 560ti, to 7870 then purposedly skip 280x (because that's not really midrange card) then to 380x and now rx480. But I would skip rx580 for sure.
