    No, the question mark at the end of the sentence denotes uncertainty, this was a question. I assumed it would be around that mark.

    Since i am not a GPU specialist, i cant say that with any degree of certainty.

    Well we know the 480 matches the 390x, they showed it playing Hitman @ QHD @ 60fps. The big question should be, is AMD replacing the Fury X with a Polaris chip? At the moment it seems like the answer is no. It's not being replaced till Vega. Which AMD basically said won't come till 2017. All the rumors so far point to GP104 replacing the 980Ti this year.

    It's possible that AMD is just going to rely on DX12 performance to keep the Fury X competitive, but who knows how Pascal will perform in DX12.

    Idk, I guess the whole thing was expected, but I just wish we got more performance at the high end. Unless something hits 30%+ over the 980Ti/Fury X, I'll be keeping my 980.
