So.....it's really a good bye to performance leaps.... :(
This days the only thing i read half power this lower power that, etc. I think that's good and all but i've been waiting like almost 3 years to replace my $250 R9 280X and even with this new polaris i won't see a huge jump in perf......i expected at least fury x performance for 300 bucks like it normally was when the new generation midrange performed equally or better than previous gen highend.

Less leakage means that they can cram more circuit in a single die while staying within thermal constraints but, I get what you're saying. I look at it a different way. If I were to upgrade, such a lineup would make a second 390 a lot cheaper.

The other thing nobody's mentioning here is that the GFXBench site has it listed as a mobile GPU(or was it a smartphone GPU?). Not dedicated. I believe we've been duped. Now if we can all stop hitting that site at the same time, maybe some of us that haven't seen it yet can take a look at what I'm talking about.

Anyhow...I think I'm going with post #7 on this one. Since that makes the most sense so far.

EDIT: I think I were wrong about that. Yep. I was.

NEAT! I am glad I purchased a 390 (sarcasm). I'm actually still a bit confused on GPU's, will the older cards (r9 2xx/3xx GTX9xx/7XX) still be relevant once these newer cards are released? Just sounds like the ultimate goal is to hit 60+ FPS 4k resolution. I just don't have that much interest in 4K just yet.

Long overdue dude, that's a fossil.

The comparison is wrong from the start, on one side you have rumored GPUs with dreamed up performance and on the side you have the competition's old products.
