Well, hatts off for AMD bringing in cards to are equal to 1070 / fury performance, and starting from 200$ and above.
Except that "leak" was a clear fake.
MSI stated it about "chinese dude's leaks".
And benchmark chart is clearly edited.

Anyhow, at 199$:

970/980 levels - is cool
980/Fury levels - is great

I wonder if it is nZilla overhypng 480 to manage to get some people disappointed with great product.


That woman is butt-ugly.
As compared to, say, Huang, that sexy boy...
Sigh.

She's a freaking CEO, not model, FFS, stop being sexist.


You might be on to something, clearly the only obstacle to VR becoming a mainstream success is those pesky graphics card prices.
700$ for a GPU and 599$ for a VR
vs
199$ for a GPU and 599$ (soon 399$, thanks, Sony) for a VR

So, 1300$ vs 800$ (600$), hardly noticeable difference indeed.

Lisa Su said AMD will release Polaris cards in between 100 - 300$. How come this is full line up of polaris if we have seen cards between $ 100 - 200 only?

RX 480 8GB is above $200, so technically it's correct. You'll never see marketing saying "between "$155 and $235". People like round numbers thus between 100-300.

"Full line" I was expecting some info on Vega. I'm not interested in cards that perform worse than the 1 year old one I already have...

No 480X or something that can really compete with the big boys? If they have such a card, why are they keeping quiet?

Of course, but last time i checked those meanies nVidia sell cheaper cards too, and those VR headsets are expensive regardless as you say.

Lets complaint about aesthetics like the real hardware entusiast we are!

Ontopic: GJ AMD for giving NVIDIA something to think about! I like the approach to gaming for everyone and not only entusiast willing to pay 400 dollars for a GFX even though Im an entusiast because I know it will mean better performance pr dollar all over as well as more games

Not saying that, but more money is more money, people have a finite amount really.
and I think the biggest obstacle really is not price at all but rather what is required to use it, for most people a simple set of glasses was too much for 3d on the tv, this is glasses and then some.
OK, but who has a gaming PC, can spend $800 on an HTC vive, but not mroe then $200 for a GPU? How does this individual gamer have the money to make a gaming PC in this case?

Im not saying its impossible, just that it is a very tiny niche that can afford a vive, but not a GPU to run it.

Notice how all these cards are just RX 480, 470, and 460. There is no mention of cards like the 480X, 470X, and 460x which in my book means one of two things:

1: The yields are mediocre at best and they are stockpiling the higher chips for a later release and releasing the one that don't meet the highest standard first in bulk and at a lower price.

2: There is no X series cards anymore and they are just moving down the lineup like Nvidia (Minus Ti or SE variants unless they come up with a new nomenclature for those).

Either way its a bit odd, what we need is the GPU already to be released and not a bunch of talk with a board in your hand. Just put it to the market and let the card do the talking...

I'm afraid I might be that niche! I have bought a Vive and even if I can afford the more expensive GPU it doesn't mean I want to spend more money than I have to!

With the release of RX 480 nvidia as of now won't have anything in that performance segment.
Unless they'll sell 970 below 200$ and 980 at ~250-300$ which is impossible imo.

970 would need to be $150 at most, and we all know that ain't gonna happen.

So 62.5% more for >70% more performance
or barely running vs. running well.
Hardly noticeable, indeed.

Is it sexist to state the obvious, or merely politically correct not to say it?
Either way I struggle to filter my thoughts, but I do want to see benchmarks of all these new cards.

With some fancy coolers on them it shouldn't even be a concern really.
LOL

The three things I care about in this order is performance, quietness and efficiency. Looks falls in far last.

Last time I've checked now and for month to come they sell 960, which is spanked by it's fellow 380 from AMD camp.
Oh, and a reminder that you are arguing about RX 480 not bringing VR to the masses.

I dislike SJWism, dude, but I'm pretty sure the reason nobody made comments about one CEO's looks, but decided to shit on the other about it is difference in their gender.

nVidia has stopped production of the 970-980-980Ti since May, so they won't be able to offer much quantity at a loss. RX480 will have alternative only by 1060 and if it is on same price and perf level. So, AMD will be playing in empty field for 2 months with their best vfm GPUs.

So. Cal.
Full lineup? Vega won't be part of the RX series?
*Full Line of RX series
So RZ 490/Fury/Rage for Vega?

Small Single slot solution with 380X/970 speeds?
Polaris 11 a good 1080p (aka 960) for $100 for all the Intel brand boxes to give the now out-going 1080p gaming upgrade (young upstart teens) and MMROPG gamers a card.

I think the Polaris 10 will provide a 32CU part as a RX470 4Gb as above 380X (up to 970) for 1080p for $150. There the a 36CU part as the RX480 4/8Gb that of the 390X/980 1440p. While when there could still be a 40CU part as a RX490 8Gb (perhaps GDDR5X). As ViperXTR said they could us Vega for a RZ490 4Gb HBM, a middle Fury 8GB, and then a full Vega as he's said a Rage model.

when selling cards at 1070 performance for less then 200$.
I don't think anyone is saying the RX480 is a competitor to a 1070, though the 8Gb should provide prodigious 1440p for most who might be looking in stepping up to a 27" 1440p Adaptive Sync Monitor and card for <$500 which would be a boon to many gamer hanging with 1080p.

Nobody asks you to consider her that way... jeez...
While all I care if they provide a technical understanding and tenacity which I believe this CEO has though a calm and methodical demure, which keeps all competitors looking at what might via against their business plans.

That would be sexist if and only if he or she is less ready to point out an ugly male public figure in the same way. You don't know if that's the case here, but generally speaking it is.

There's a huge market for these cards. Just look at the options in the price/power segment now and prepare to be underwhelmed. Most of them are designs from 5-6 years ago. I, for one, am glad to see a recommitment to low power cards. Being stuck on 28nm had AMD and NVIDIA trying to out-power each other to get on top--the electric bill suffered for it.

Meh. My Skylake/980 SLI rig sips 535W from the wall, and only when I push it in unrealistic ways. GTX980 is 28nm...
