Unless you get a good deal on the 480, why not get that extra few % of performance for less money?

Why not just buy a 290x for quite a bit less then? Again, they market this card as a perf/watt card. Now that is gone. So why would you buy it? If you don't care about efficiency, buy a used 290X.

Simply put, the original RX 480 was designed for a purpose. To be a great perf/watt card. Now they throw more power at it but it doesn't translate to actual performance. It's not efficient design in my opinion. If the 8GB RX480 drops at least 10% in price, then it's a no brainer.

https://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=rx+580+8gb&N=-1&isNodeId=1

If both cost the same I would definitely get the Rx 580... No sense getting Rx 480 imo.

AMD shoudl have atleast killed off the 4GB model and made 8GB standard.

Brand new card barely leading a 780. Shows how far AMD has fallen behind.

It is not a highend card so that is expected. I am sure Nvidia's competition to the Rx 580 is only a few percentage faster than a 780 also.

No they don't. They market this card on performance per dollar.

Aparently has started doing things on a study by study basis.

Their study found that 80% of gamers are using cards equivalent to a 380x or lower.

So OCN.... not everyone is using a TitanX or is interested in one.

And they're right, I'm on a 380 4GB that I got for $160 back then. But with more income, comes more performance wants! biggrin.gif

It's too bad AMD doesn't have something at $350 also. When they marketed the 480 and 580, it would be $200 plus the AIB premium fee upwards to $275. Then a x90 series card that starts at $300 and caps at $400 would've been nice. I think many of us just want a 1070 competitor. Also, bringing back the 4GB option for the 480 was unnecessary. A step above mainstream would've been nice.

You know the family structure of AMD has gotten fairly weird and not up to par with this generation. It used to be AMD x90 cards against the Nvidia x80. Then the AMD x80 went against the Nvidia x70, and the AMD x70 went against the Nvidia x60. But now it's an AMD x80 card going against a Nvidia x060. If an AMD x90 would've came out, it probably would've went against an Nvidia x070 card instead of an x080. Kinda sad.

I think we would all expect Vega news next week, so it doesn't steal the "sales storm" from the 580. But if everything I've read is right, it's launch will either come just before CES or after CES. My gut is telling me during CES after they show off Vega on stage.

And don't forget the single 6 pin they showed off, extensively.

Even more proof that the 580X is moot is that you can flash a 480X to be 580X. Same gpu (just like the 7950 vs 7970). Unless they make a 580X Ghz edition, I still say the 480X is a better buy. Especially if the price drops more than 10% (which it will).

Really looking for this cards now....

Not a single AMD card for me since the great R9 270X....I remember that I hated to turn off PhysX in games.

Are they retarded "exclusives" to Nvidia still?

Glad I didn't wait. The 480 looked well priced and the 580 is too but the power consumption is through the roof now. The 1060 runs so much cooler and I'm glad I bought one of those instead. I'm not doing any crazy gaming either just Dota2 and occasionally BF4.

But not the 580... except for idle and low utilization power.
