Then again AMD has every price segment to fill above $200. Nvidia set the pricing bar with the 1080 Ti, so it'll be interesting to see what AMD does, especially as at this point the market is probably only moving if it's really compelling.

Many people are still holding to their previous gen cards as they still have good enough performance for their uses, those are the customers that AMD has to convince with a compelling proposition in mid-2017; the rest moved on earlier to the 1070, 1080 and 1080 Ti, and if AMD doesn't convince the holdouts, they may also move from their current AMD or Nvidia card to a new Nvidia one eventually when the time comes.

Yeah this is the make or break period for AMD as it was for Ryzen for Vega. If it doesn't perform i may have to move to Nvidia, no matter how it goes against my promise.

Even at a rock bottom of $100 price for the $580 you'd be hard pressed to find a 390 or 480 owner willing to sidegrade.

Without tangible improvements in performance they will never get customers at all despite being cheap for the masses.

Customers need an incentive to upgrade and being cheap alone is not good enough.

My logic is... They should stop wasting tune and resources on segments that makes them no money. In glad they took that step.

And in taking that step, they also gave those people in that same valuable segments in your very own words very little incentive to upgrade.wink.gif

This seems like a solid release for anyone running an older card like the 970 or a 290X, depending on how they are priced. I've been mulling over a 480 to replace my 270X in my studio PC lately, especially with the prices down below $200 these days.

Those people are already in the AMD marketshare. AMD is after more marketshare.

This makes it all that much easier to recommend an 8GB 480 on clearance right now. Not surprised by that at all though considering it is just a refresh.

You nailed it. Exactly as this slide says.

Or how about those who want and can afford a performance increase and want to support the underdog but have no incentive to do so?

1. Since we're talking purely about performance here, "2 year old obsolete" is just a red herring considering Fury X still outpaces the 390. You asked what would 390 owners upgrade to if they had to buy AMD, and I gave the answer.

2. There are very few scenarios where the 8GB vram on the 390 will come in handy before it runs out of GPU power, but ok.

3. You have no place to mount a 120mm AIO? I mean come on.

4. To your last point, since you waited 2 years already, why not just wait a bit longer for Vega? biggrin.gif

1) Unlikely they would and Fury X is already EOL anyway.

2) Except in high resolutions.

3) Yes i have all my fan slots all mounted already with fans anyway and i don't want to have an AIO GPU, but a blower or custom air card, is that a problem?

1. IF they didn't upgrade when Fury X launched because it didn't provide enough improvement, then sure they sure as hell aren't going to upgrade now

2. Ok what resolution and what games specifically?

3. No but if you're upgrading from a 390 and insist on buying AMD, Fury X is the best you can do right now, and you'll have to make do with the AIO somehow. Or you could always get Fury without the AIO for a bit less performance.

Anyway, before this gets more heated I simply wanted to point out that Fury X was a viable upgrade for 390 owners. If the complaint is it didn't provide enough performance increase then ok sure, there's nothing better and you'd have to wait for Vega if you insist on buying AMD.
