    I wanted to wait for Vega, but it is summer and I buy it even for the low power consumption and lower heat emission :)

    This one is going to be an interesting review. Keep feeling this has some great potential for OCing apart from all the rest it brings.

    Will be good to see AMD pull in a big bunch of market share for an even more interesting future

    You need to get out more...;) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008 AMD has had "GPU boost" for years...Hopefully, you are talking about something else...

    Has there ever been a video hype video like this for other cards?

    What makes the RX 480 hype worthy?

    Find out next time on the next exciting episode of Guru3D. :D

    by the way, when are 490/490X coming out? Are those the Fury-X successor?

    Vega 10/11 are Fury X successor. AMD said its somewhere in October. HBM2 is also mentioned so all in all its exciting just like Polaris.

    My bad. I was meaning about GPU boost that works similar to what Nvidia's cards do. Have an off set when overclocking via Afterburner.

    If performance per watt of 480/480x is as good as rumored, the 'big-daddy' with HBM2 could be a damn killer.

    So from what i read is that this card has 980 performance, which means you need to go CrossFire for 1440p.

    Sucks to be an AMD user i guess with all these half assed Console Ports that barely support CrossFire/SLI.

    For people with 1440p this is a godsend.
    Great to be an AMD user with all those great PC games with good CF support. And dx12 games wont need CF anyway. Win win. :infinity:

    Right now 1440p = nvidia and 1080p = AMD. Users have a choice. Let's all agree on that. No one expects to game at 1440p on a 200$ GPU.

    Yes apart from the nice price, i don't understand all the excitement over a mid-range 1080p card!

    Anyone would think it's a GTX 1080 beater based on the hype.
    Also it will be interesting to see some alternative benchmark results that aren't Ashes of the f'king singularity!

    I guess i can understand AMD's reasoning in flogging AOTS every time they show off a new gpu, it's there one and only trump card against Nvidia.
    But it doesn't give a true representation of the performance of there gpu's in the thousands of other games out there.

    Pity you won't be seeing any multi-gpu benefits from most UT4, Unity and ID Tech engine based games, and most DX12 games so far for that matter.

    It sux but who can complain on getting that type of performance for 200 squid.

    Only a year ago this performance would of cost you 500-600 quid. AMD is bringing good fps(1080p) for very little money.

    Lets hope for AMD's sake that nVidia doesn't ruin the party by releasing a faster roughly priced 1060.

    i dont know

    I see the 1060 selling for $350+ they are miles of the mark to compete with this $200, $240 card.
    I honestly think nvidia dont have a answer to the RX480 their pricing is 40% out.
    Look at the 1070 pricing.
    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=1070
    How could they justify selling the 1060 for half that price for 20% less performance than their 1070, they just cant they would be competing with themselves.

    As with any new card release there are always fanboys/shills/trolls. I have used both. AMD drivers have been lacking but they are good enough on Windows with clockblocker for those games with bad gpu utilization(source games). Faster cards for cheaper is always a good thing. Die shrinks are always a good thing. Nvidia are greedy ****s and the 1080/1070 are laptop gpus in disguise look how bare the cards look it's a joke. $800 for a 1080 and $600 for a 1070 that's milking the consumer cow. It's going to be funny When 1080 TI and Vega hit. 980 TI or this card are going to be the best bang for buck as long as you can find 980TI's.
