    Looks like the 470 will be a great bang-for-buck card.
    Nice!

    I do not understand why the hell gpu clocks are lowered, like somehow smaller chip was made using crappier materials and harder to cool...

    Because with lower clocks, a higher amount of chips will pass the validation test, so less chips will be discarded, so less wasted money, so they can be sold cheaper.

    Amd really needs to hurry up with these releases Nvidia has had an answer already for the 480

    Seems to me that AMD knew that nvidia had the 1060 ready to launch in August, so they rushed out the 480 ahead of time. Nvidia and third card manufacturers were rushed but prepped.

    RX470 looks too good to be true.

    The gap between the 470 and 460 is so massive, i bet there will be a 465 to fill that up at some point.

    Or they just want 470 to sell more. With those specs looks like its gonna be close to 480. Priced at 150$ this can be a very nice card.

    RX 460 for Cool and Efficient E-Sports Gaming. What is this, some kind of joke? :D No e-sports player would use this card.

    Well, when a new product is released, there is at least one marketing goof that comes with it.

    They play at low resolution and low details to minimize fancy distracting effects. I'm sure it will sell.

    Will the RX470 perform like a 960 then?

    Between 960 and 970. As you can see specs wise is very close to 480. I would assume 10-15% slower than 480.

    RX480 seems a refurbished R9 290, it's about the same framerate in every game, just a little bit better.

    I think AMD is not doing a good job if they are only repeating the same products over and over, year after year. Providing only minor changes in performance or better power requirements for the same performance. Sure, it's cheap... of course it is!!!

    The low-mid class of nvidia (1060) equals the top class of AMD next-gen (480)? come on AMD... you can do better... you NEED to do better...

    I had 2 x R9 290 in crossfire, and, after several years supporting AMD with many GPU models, I recently changed to a single 1080 GTX. AMD needs to work hard to regain the lost crown.

    The 480 is the mid-range card and it goes against the 1060 (that is mid-range too, not low). The top card is called Vega and will be launched in 2017.
