What about the people who bought the cards before all this came to be?
Going to be interesting to see how it plays out. If the performance reduction will be minimal (and if it will hit the OC performance).
I wonder if people will decide to return the reference 480s and wait for the AIBs instead.

You know well that if you were to return a card, you'd rather get a better card which is not from AMD at the moment
