Barely better than a reference 480? Dang. Once AIB 480s come out, this is going to be a very competitive segment

It should be as good as a 980. That's what I've been hearing and it would need to be if the £300/£250 rumoured prices are to be believed.

I predict 6gb cards first, then a couple of months later Nvidia will hoover up all of the people who didn't want to spend that much and will get the 3gb card out in volume.

Lmao pretty hard at that one
Really though, with the FE tax, it must be barely cheaper than a 1070. Who in there right mind would buy that when for barely more you get an immensely more powerful card at barely more wattage

Wonder what gimpvidia did to the poor thing. Either way at least it likely wont have any power draw issue just so they can keep the AMD burn going. The nvidiots need something to work with.

That's funny but quite true. Yes it will not make any sense but people will still buy it because of their loyalty to Nvidia. See also - 760 960 770 etc. All were outdone by AMD but they all sold OK.

well the 770 i can almost comprehend because bit miners were hammering the amd cards and caused prices to skyrocket for a while.

I dont know if they will do the same to the 480's but i hear they sold out in the usa pretty fast. so im not convinced that they arent doing it. although there are much more energy efficient ways to mine these days.

Having had a look around at actual RX 480 owners it seems that people on very low budgets seem to be buying them in truck loads.

I've seen them paired with a CPU you can get for about £3.

This is good though. The more PC gamers we bring in the better the games get. I remember the last "gold rush" era when the AMD XP was around and you could build a nigh top end PC for around $300 using a XP 1800+ Nforce 2 board and Radeon 9200 Pro. IIRC the CPU was about $80, board $60 GPU was $120 and a case and PSU was pretty much nothing.

And we saw some incredible games during that era (Underground 1&2 for example).

I'm hoping AMD make a Zen quad core or something for around $80. A decent £60 CPU, it's been a while... Can't see it though but they may do a Zen based quad core Athlon with lower clocks for that much.

What we need to see is PCs costing less than consoles. So $300 would be absolutely spot on as it was before

You do know AIB just means add-in-board right?
Alternatively you could say AIB partner 480s, but an AIB 480 is just a 480.
