    Why do AMD cards always have this very high TFLOP compute power thingy but in the end perform worse than nvidia's cards in most games?

    Meh. Nvidia delivers alot more at 150w..

    "below 150 Watts" We dont know precisely how much the consumption, so save your troll for later.

    Gotta love how AMD are always so focussed at Nvidia in their presentations lol

    I am looking forward to this card since i need a new GPU for my media pc

    1070 has 6.5 Tflops, but If the price is good - my next purchase.

    Yeah. It's not like they're going to have a low-end card pushing power requirements to the limit. Previous rumors put the 480 at 110W and the 480X at 130W. If that holds true, it's impressive and competitive with Pascal.

    Looks like a direct competitor of GTX1070. Bring it on AMD, time to see some real competition against GTX1070

    amd and their async compute... they need a better way to market. Consumers arent going to run ashes of the singularity benchmarks all day.

    It's not. AMD typically has more cores and therefore more FLOPS than comparable Nvidia cards, so this will be a lot weaker than the 1070. It'll consume noticeably less power than the 1070 as well. This is a GP106 competitor. These specs put it about 7% faster than an R9 390.

    It's also the reason why AMD users tend to be so passionate about defending their favorite brand. It's not like nvidia ones are much different, but the edge is definitely at AMD. :p

    Or 10% slower then my 290x. In terms of tflops. But for sure that won't be all there is to it.

    Polaris is a 232mm2 chip. Too big a difference for it to match the 1070's 314mm2 chip. I believe AMD is focusing on the mid-range market where the real money is. Who cares about performance crowns when your deep in debt and need to make money to survive.

    And the Titan X has 6.1Tflops compared to the 1070 of 7.2TFlops yet they are on par pretty much, in some cases the 1070 is behind the Titan X.

    They're manufactured on a different process and the 1070 does not have all units enabled so the die size doesn't matter - not really good for comparision. Full Polaris 10 will have more cores (therefore more transistors used and "active") than in the 1070.

    how did you figure that's where "the real money is"? i would argue that demand for low to mid range dGPU is rapidly decreasing with iGPU becoming ever more powerful. casual people can already play pretty much any indie game on iGPU with decent performance, and even well optimized games like ones from Blizzard or Valve. and if you don't game then iGPU is perfect for every single consumer task you can think of - browsing, youtube, htpc, office apps, etc. low end dGPU is already made obsolete by iGPU and soon low-mid range dGPU will also be made obsolete.

    Its funny how you say a different process but has 'more cores' as if they're directly comparable.
