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.
Naah, still sexist.

Anyway, yaaaaaayyyy low end love! Now make something at the €50 price point!

I want a good, competitive and an affordable product. If she can provide one (or in this case the company that she leads), she can look like a god damn raccoon for all I care...

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?
That was in the context of 84% of the people buying cards in that price range.

I'm pretty sure 480x is coming. It might be ambushing 1060 though. (or so I hope)

well premium is also a synonym for quality/high value/good.
In this case the experience is of that high quality so its not quite an oxymoron
My oxymoron detector exploded at affordable solution for a premium VR experience.
As far as I know, these are 100-150 dollar cards for stuff like MOBA and 1080p gaming at most. For 1440p gaming and VR one "should" look for a RX 480.

Damn, those cards look so 2006.
With some fancy coolers on them it shouldn't even be a concern really.
Indeed we are talking about sub 100w cards here, they do not need big and expensive coolers (and never had them anyway in that segment).

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.
I am glad about this change in strategy too.

For those who are interested (no video of mine):

Way better! This makes me gonna buy it now! The next argument for people would be the "only" 13% OC potential. I'd say your pictures adresses that as well!

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.
A GTX 970 scores more than 6.3 in the Steam VR test, don't see why it isn't an option for a premium VR experience.

as long as the RX 480 can match a 390X or 980 in some -games- I'm a buyer for it, don't really care about synthetic benches or VR. I want to see some game benches for this little thing.

btw, this is the RX 470/480 PCB if you have not seen it yet.

This could be a good strategy for AMD. The vast majority of PC's, notebooks, and mobile devices use this kind of GPUs. Its good for consumers too.

Look at the driver version. It's from January. I'm sure most people would agree that polaris wouldn't have proper driver support in January, especially so for VR.
Catalyst gets updated all the time, the initial driver date is irrelevant.

If the testing is done with driver 16.1, it shows the results from January. AMD itself says in footnote that the result will vary if tested from different driver version.

No, it only shows they used the driver from that date, not that they tested at that time.

Isn't that same? Doesn't matters when someone tests it, what matters is which driver version is used. AMD is deliberately or foolishly masking performance of their cards.

So 62.5% more for >70% more performance
or barely running vs. running well.
Hardly noticeable, indeed.
We don't know what the performance difference will be yet. Or, if it's "barely running".

I honestly believe we are going to see a lot of buyers remorse for jumping on Pascal at such inflated prices when they come down after Polaris launch.

1KW+ PSU's just became niche again.
