    In the slide-deck that was released yesterday some benchmark numbers have been, well almost hidden. But they are there. I added them into two charts to check out....

    Almost r9 290 performance at 110W and not to mention it should not cost more than $160, seems like a great performer, if it's true.

    Holy guacamole! If everything is true, somebody might upgrade to a RX 480 this year. :D

    If true the Polaris line up is looking like a good bang for buck option, just hope it's true

    So basicly AMD is forcing people into Crossfire to get the same Performance as a 1070 for Less Money.

    Sucks if you hate Crossfire and want Single Card performance of the 1070.

    This leak confirms 480 to be around 980 performance.

    I hope its true. AMD will dominate mid-high GPU range with this.

    I didnt expect that level of performance from 470. Seems like a owesome card if it can keep 150$.

    At this point I don't trust anything until Hilbert confirms it with his benchmarks. Would be nice if true and if it reflects the real word gaming performance too.

    No. These cards are meant for people who either can't afford or simply aren't interested in a higher end (more expensive) card like 1070 and upward. It's silly to think 1070 would be some kind of a standard level of performance everybody must have to be able to play their Dota or whatever. You can play 99% of games out there just fine with less power than 1070's, maybe not on uber settings, but play nonetheless.

    AMD's answer to 1070 and 1080 is still basically nothing but rumours and idle talk.

    Agree, but i think they will only release an answer to the 1070 at a lower cost, under the name of 480x, which should be a great buy if so.

    For high end people, there's the 1080 or future 1080ti/ Vega GPU's.

    Hilarious the amount of people on here who believe if you don't have the best there must be something wrong with the product.

    Forcing? No. It is your choice to buy or not.
    At this moment, you can go and buy GTX 980Ti at good price.

    What AMD is about to do, is to deliver record bump in performance without greatly inflating price. Quite opposite, isn't it? Price seems rather good.

    Polaris is just bit small, entry level desktops and midrange solutions. +What looks like great step on mobile front.

    You'll get taste now and you'll be able to approximate Vega. For which you can wait half of a year.

    Always your choice.

    You're actually looking at more money though.

    RX 480 8GB crossfire will be roughly £478
    GTX1070 is roughly £400, some cheaper, some more expensive.

    On the otherhand, it'll probably beat both pascal cards in supported games.

    We will have to wait for Vega to see higher end GPUs. I do not understand why everyone is comparing these cards to the 1070/1080. They are mainstream gpus.

    It seems they some nvidia fans just want a higher cheaper permforming card to force prices down on the 1070/1080.

    It's also possible that some people just want options and they are disappointed that AMD isn't giving them any at the 1070/1080 performance level.

    What I don't understand is why people are surprised by this. The rumors/leaks pointed to Polaris being a midrange card since last year. AMD said they were targeting the midrange/lowend market throughout the first half of this year. Raja did an interview with Arstechnica specifically saying that Polaris wasn't going to compete with the 1080 like three months ago.

    Now they launch their stuff and everyone is surprised that what they were saying the whole time is true. Makes no sense to me

    Yes, and their look is very biased.

    They look at AMD as bad for not releasing same performance class cards as nVidia.

    Everything would be perfect if nVidia released 1st low end and AMD 'followed'.
    Because that's what their mind tells them is right. AMD making their decision, different from nVidia? No way to do that.

    So basically you do not understand market segments
