    what it costs where you live shouldn't be a the basis, MSRP should.

    That having been said, performance/$ always decreases as you move up in the product stack.

    I too am debating between Polaris 10 (crossfire) and 1080GTX as I cannot wait for Vega to arrive. Hopefully those benchmarks are with very very beta drivers because a 42% jump for a second videocard in xfire would make me go with the green team and forgo my ambitions for a 4k monitor with freesync.

    Forget Crossfire or any kind of multiGPU. It's not worth it. If you cash out $600 for two Polaris cards that would work OK 2/3 of the time, then get a 1080.

    I think everybody with a QHD or QFHD has or is going to have a multi-gpu setup. That is a large percentage of pc gamers in general. With 4K advancing as rapidly as it is, I think developers would start noticing and implementing SLI and Xfire in the oncoming years. Of course though, I would have to be able to crossfire the two for well under $600. BTW, I really need a new monitor with freesync.

    Hopefully your optimism is rewarded. All I keep reading from folks who currently run multi-GPU setups is how the support is actually getting progressively worse, not better. It's steered me away from considering a twin 1070 setup to just getting a 1080.

    I hope Polaris gives us some tasty options in the under $400 ranges.

    Am I the only one consciously avoiding 4k/1440p? I find 1080p60 just fine, and the price point for hardware running great on it drops constantly. I will only consider upgrading to a 1440p Gsync/Freesync (it has to support both) 30-90Hz, OLED/HDR panel.

    1080p is ok on 24" monitors, not ok on 27" monitors. going from 1080p to 1440p on a 27" monitor makes everything look a lot sharper. the performance hit is there, but it's not too bad and most of today's high end cards can run 1440p just fine. 4k though... not quite there yet.

    If i go with recent leaks, then it looks like "full" Polaris should be ~Fury performance out of the box. OC'ed to the max probably ~ 980ti stock boost levels.

    That said, Polaris 10 is theoretically put against 1070gtx. Vega will be 1080gtx and full vega vs 1080ti.
    lol no wonder nv already leaking 1080Ti infos. :grin:

    If the full one is 2304 core one then yes it would be Fury performance out of the box :)

    But we haven't seen anything towards anything with higher core count yet. Some are saying there would be 3072 one and 2560 one and all that.

    In reality we only know of the few in sisoft sandra.

    soon 2 be Sapphire Fury
    my 32" 2560x1440 is pretty nice, it looks much better than my old 29"uwhd 1080 monitor.

    For big screens (27"+) 1080p is too low (i had a 27"@1080p screen and well, image could be better ). If u play on 24" or smaller screen 1080p is enough.

    The longer you keep playing @1080p the better, it will get cheaper to achieve 60+ fps.

    If a 480X delivers performance around Fury it is a good card. Then there would be the 490 series and the fury replacements left. So nothing actually would be competing with nvidias cards until the competitors as in 490 would come out. And then it would be time for 1080ti and possible Titan and then the fury replacement.

    My current screen is 1920x1200 because I like my displays 16:10. I will be upgrading my monitor coming winter tho to something 1440p like I guess since 4k is still far away even with upcoming Vega and Big pascal.

    AMD currently has the upper hand in DX12 titles, and all of the games coming out now or in the future are basically either using Vulcan or DX12. In Hitman the Fury X is outpacing the GTX 1070 (link), and is on par in AoTs (link). In Warhammer AMD also seems to be performing better: link. So if AMD are doing better now, just imagine what Polaris and Vega will do. :3eyes:

    So I have no doubt the Polaris 10 is going to give the GTX 1070 a run for its money, especially in future titles!

    Coming from a CRT background, I cant play anything below 1440p on a 24" screen. 1080p is painful above 21.5".

    Well, it is there and active from start. That's how you get driver boost if needed for competition. In the end, nVidia had fine tuned driver for Pascal same day they started to sell Maxwell.

    Can you explain what the meaning of this signifies? I don't quite understand joke or not.
