    Guys i think it's $499 Singapur Dollar ;) (w/7% Tax)

    Navi 10 XT = ~330 USD
    Navi 10 ("Pro") = ~280 USD

    IMhO Hi-End Navi starting price will be at ~299€ (As Polaris was, or maby lower? who knows)
    Those are small chips, easy to manufacture with good Yield... So pricing at >400€ do not do any good to ATI/AMD.

    Here we go.
    I am getting tired of repeating that Nvidia is trolling the real performance of Pascal gpus.
    The Gtx 1080 is a little monster, especially when oc'ed. It gets so close to the gtx 1080ti that the difference is something between 10-15%.
    And not less it kicks the rtx 2070 ass.
    My Rig:
    Asus X470-I ROG Strix
    16 gb ddr4 3200 mhz
    Ryzen 2700x (stock clock)
    Watercooled and oc gtx 1080 fe with 399.24 drivers (the last good ones for Pascal gpus)

    Rage 2 has been run in 4k on ultra settings with soft vsync, txaa+fxaa
    As for the fps capturing I did use the awesome OCAT piece of software:
    https://github.com/GPUOpen-Tools/OCAT/releases

    Here you can grab my video showing the magic - this is a Rage 2 gameplay session that I have recorded for the misbelievings :)

    I know, the word is: unbelievable :)
    Undying, I can not say anything more cause I may offend you and the last thing that I want is to be banned - cheers!

    5870 was a hell of a card back in the day. I rocked that card for years. It was my last AMD card and I've been NVIDIA ever since. Hoping they make a comeback in the GPU world for the top shelf stuff. I'm not interested in the budget baller cards they excel at.

    indeed, its the q6600/920/2500k of the GPU world, for a while i thought that would never happen

    Its not the first time. Someone mentioned it page before that amd hawaii did the same thing.

    290/390x from 2013 is still quite powerful while his competitor 780 is long gone

    There's no point to comparing an OC'd card to non-OC'd card.

    If you compare OC to OC, you'll find similar performance gaps that are between vanilla and vanilla of the same cards.

    Definitely looking forward to benchmarks to see how this all plays out. I know a lot of people have been holding out for Navi.

    GTX1080 is such a nice GPU. it usually does not receive the credit it deserves. I have both GTX1080 and 1080Ti and my favorite one is GTX1080. it's fast, cool and extremely efficient. in terms of efficiency it can rival the best of Turing cards nearly 3 years after it's release and has a very good OCing potential. I have two GTX1080 cards and both of them can overclock to 2100Mhz core and 11200Mhz memory. I'm pretty sure with this OC it can surpass stock RTX 2070 in most games. considering I bought them at $450 new, it was a crazy good value for it's time. when I bought them they were cheaper than RX580 and GTX1070 because of mining craze!!!

    True.
    Unfortunately the gtx 1080 has been put in the dark once that the ti version appeared.
    Returning back on the main topic...for me the whole pc desktop graphics carousel is starting to smell with the CARTEL word.
    At first I thought that the new Amd gpu was only aimed to make some cash in the entry-mid segment but from today I am starting to realize that we are loosing some concurrency here.
    The days when Amd was trying to give the enthusiasts some real good hardware, please read as Radeon hd 7970 have gone.

    it's better in every application i have and the games i play. i still use the 1080ti, but in my htpc (still have the waterblock) where it replaced a gtx 970.
    i did a mild oc on the R7, nothing major. i'm an audiophile so i'm hypersensitive to noise, especially harmonics (i.e. fans and fan bearings) and induced hums (i.e. power supplies). i'm also a (not that great) home musician as i play the French horn and trumpet.
    so i have many tributaries of nerd running into my river of geek.

    Good for you! Guitar & trumpet here for many years...but that is a fading but very pleasant memory. Hard to figure these posts about the 1080--never had one and never missed it, either.
