    Just wait for a non-reference. I'm absolutely sure there will be some.

    "Reference models AMD has a suggested retail price of 260 euros". What has happened with the 200 $ ,or 200 EUR retail VR price tag?! In the end RX 480 will cost around 300 USD\EUR.

    Nothing has happened? It's going to cost that in the USA. In Europe stuff is always more expensive for many reasons, like segmented market, higher taxes and import tariffs. I'm sure you have noticed that over the years.

    Passive adapters only give you single link dvi which defeats the purpose as most monitors have an hdmi input anyways. Dual link dvi is needed to attain a higher frequency than 60Hz, I had the same delima when I chosen between the fury and 980Ti, my old Asus monitor can only get 120Hz from a dual link. And let's not even talk about active adapters that are expensive and probably useless as I suspect an added latency.

    which issue exactly did you have with the last 14 releases (16.1.1 to 16.6.2) of amd drivers?

    i used have a r9 290 used get freezes and crashes , the nvidia drivers you can remove all the bloatware like 3dvision.shadowplay etc and they still work perfect, a dude done a post on this website how to do it , also theres nvidia inspetor which can help a lot on badly optimized games , amd used have radeon pro which not as good as inspector, im not a fanboy or anything but nvidia has got most reliable and easiest to use drivers , and now 980ti is £200 cheaper than is was last month its a lot of power for the money i had to pull the trigger

    You know they do make DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter (VisionTek 900639) which good for up to 100Hz for now in tell you get a better newer Monitor that has DisplayPort Input or spent over $100 for StarTech DP2DVID2 which support 144Hz so you that price you paid when jump gun on latest tech from a few years back

    It's kind of foolish to spend 100$ for an active conversion that may cause issues. Unfortunately, it makes more sense to just turn to the dark side and buy from nvidia.

    Yesterday's tech is always going to be cheaper, especially now with the fundamental shift to a smaller process node, so it's not a mere generation step like has been for the past few years.

    Buy what from Nvidia? There's nothing to buy if you want the new architecture. By the time 1060 hits the market, the 480 cards from AMD partners ought to be on the market as well. Those will have a DVI connector, no doubt.

    I guess your r9 290 was defective. I only get crashes when I test stupid overclocks. Freezes never except when trying stupid overclocks.

    I removed all bloatware and the drivers work perfect. Inspector pretty much selects settings for you doesn't it? I can understand how that will help tad.

    This seriously sounds like a hardware problem man.

    If you need dual link dvi, it makes a lot more sense to buy a used gtx 970/980 or even a new gtx 1070 than to fork out 240+100$ for a 480 and an active converter. Honestly, nvidia is really an awful company as their market strategy is against the customers best interests. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to do what makes better sense.

    I'm sure there will be some DVI on some RX 480 but if want it now then you have no other option or just wait I do believe I show photo from Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro with DVI
