[Guru3D] ASUS Radeon RX 580 STRIX review - Page 3

post #21 of 129
While meh, this is not unusual or unexpected. Heck, this isn't even a long-running rebrand yet.

Look at the 8800GTS (g92):
8800GTS -> 9800GTX -> 250GTS

Or the 7870 (arguably a die shrink on the 6970):
7870 -> 270X -> 370X

I'm sure there are other examples out there :-)

Ah, someone watched the AdoredTV video.

7870 was definitely not a die shrink of the 6970. It was based on GCN while the 6970 was based on the outdated VLIW architecture. There's a pretty large leap in innovation between those two parts.

 

Agreed with the rest ;)

Indeed. Though the 8800GTS was a top end videocard that revolutionized (performance wise) when released and it kicked arse... it could be rebadged a couple of times and sent to the back of the line and eventually discontinued... the 480 when first released was a midrange product at best... and it kicked nobody's arse... it just made sense price to performance, though the gtx 970 still made more sense as it became cheaper and it's only a 15% slower (though it can OC quite high and reach the 480 with ease).

In practice this means that the RX 580 is only averaging 3% faster than the RX 480 it replaces in AMD’s product stack, while the RX 570 looks better, picking up 7% over the RX 470. Based on these numbers, I feel it’s fair to say that while both cards are faster than their earlier incarnations, I wouldn’t fault anyone for lumping the two generations of cards together.

No "reference" cards are being produced, so that is about your only choice.

A youtuber that actually speaks it's mind and does quite extensive reviews not only on hardware but on architectures and newly implemented tech.

And I love his accent.

So it looks like I'll be waiting longer now. I figured when I purchased my 290x i'd get a few good years out of it and upgrade. This is true, it's been a couple years, and I'll continue running with it until AMD can actually put out something new. I don't want to go green seeing as the last green card caught fire on me.
