AMD possibly will be using XX5 revisions e.g. AMD Radeon RX 495

    Ok, so adaptive sync is more a smoothing tool then; more of a way to address stuttering than to compensate for actual consistent low frame rates, homogenizing the whole fluid nature presented on the screen. There is nothing that can replace old try and true. Thank you.

    That's a good way of looking at it.

    BTW it's scary how similar to my old PC yours is. Are you really still gaming on a 940BE and a 6950?

    Yup. Most current game I have that is played is METRO 2033, Skyrim too. None of the recent titles have really sparked my interest. (EDIT: Except for DOOM, have not really been looking either.) Most still played is UT2004 and SSOC. Clearsky and Pripyat not so much.

    Have update in the works. Just have the case (Core X9) so far. Will be getting the water loop materials next. Waiting to see how Zen shapes up. Was looking to replace the 6950 with the 480 and pass the rig down to my son. Most demanding game he is into currently is Garden Warfare 2. Daughter loves SPORE.

    When the 970 came out it was a pretty decent performer at 1440p. That was 2 years ago.

    The 480 is perfectly playable on 1440. Especially if you have a Freesync monitor.

    It can get 15-20 fps at 1440p in most games I guess? It roughly matches a GTX 970, and that's what a 970 would get at 1440p in a modern game maxed.
    Is this a joke? You're on the wrong kind of forum to be calling people elitists over maxing details.

    Bro he is serious. Between him and vase I'm really not wanting to suggest this card to friends due to not wanting them to start acting like them.

    I totally agree with Loophole35 and Denial, I wouldn't buy this for my 1440p screen! I waited for this cards release before I made my purchase of a 1070, after I read the review I liked the card and its performance at its price point, but its certainly not for 1440p gaming with modern titles. 1080p gaming is its domain.

    Like Leszy's 2 pictures show; the RX 480 IS capable of 1440p gaming.

    On the other-hand, I do think having a 1440p monitor and then buying the RX 480 to go with it is dumb. However, going crossfire RX 480, yeah, decent setup.

    Those graphs don't tell me enough, what in game settings where used!? If you look at Fallout 4 it shows nearly 70FPS (DX11) and Hilberts graphs shows mid 50s, quite a bit of a difference there. Then theres Battlefield Hardline, the quoted graph shows nearly 80FPS at 1440p whereas Hilbert saw mid 40s I mean what!?

    I guess theres no right or wrong here, if someones happy to game at 1440p and turn a lot of settings down to get 60FPS thats up to them, personally I don't want to make that compromise, so for me RX480 is nowheres near enough for 1440p, hence why I've got a 1070 arriving today.

    Well if on a budget and one wants to upgrade from lets say 760 on that 1440p you will get better performance, most of the time it seems to be tad over 60fps most settings maxed w/o gameworks. Or hilberts reviews 41-100 fps depending on game. And these people will have that 60hz screen also.

    I cannot max out a game like witcher 3 without it feeling choppy that hairworks is a bitch on 1200p already. But I don't need it, it looks odd.

    Ofcourse, RX 480 is NOT a "full-details" kind of card at 1440p, but, I think people are aware of this. It's a nice card at 1080p where-as GTX1070 is a "very nice" card at 1080p.

    I'm also a full-on advocate of 60fps+ gaming, but, we have to realise that the market for this card rests in the more "budget-mid-range" sector.

    Only time will tell how this plays out, but, from the 2 pics; I think it's actually NOT strong enough for 60fps DX12 gaming @1440p. (minus the pci-e spec problem) Crossfire is a very viable option, especially those who get another in a year's time to "rectify" this "problem".

    On the other-hand, RX 480 is rumoured to be what's in the next iterations of the Xbox and PS4 consoles, so, I think it'll work out alright for it's users.

    We must remember that this card is packing tech that is currently going un-used which may one-day play it's part...thus adding a little future proofing especially for those console ports.

    Tech that us on the Nvidia-side are missing so don't completely write RX 480 and it's iterations off yet.
