What's the likely price? Mid-£200's I'm thinking - the 1060 Strix that it fairly-closely matches is around £290-300 and the 480's are about £230-260 or so, expect it to fill that range I guess.

Added this in with my Ryzen system it would of taken the price to around the £650 mark which in fairness is a really nice price range for a proper gaming system, though that red needs to be white

Probably why I kept seeing Asus post with specials for 480's on FB

Nice review, I have a mates customer who was told to hold off and not get an RX480 by me and just as well as the RX580 is going to be much better for him and he will be gaming at 1080 so this will give him all the bells and whistles

Not bad. Saw a couple of 580's hit 1500Mhz, but most were slightly below.

Genuinely glad that AMD have allowed the AIBs to put their coolers on the cards from the start and not forcing them to use reference designs initially. They should do the same for Vega as well

Nice card. Seems like they've refined the last one so fair play. I think they've learned a bit from Sapphire.

Thanks for the review Tom

Looks like there are models with stock clocks of up to 1450MHz, shame nobody goes higher than 8000MHz on the memory,

Impressive. Great to see Polaris can really get up and go once clocks start getting higher

This all makes me wonder how Vega will clock, it will be on the same enhanced process. One of the problems with the Fury X was that it didn't clock much higher than 1000MHz, and even at that it can still compete with the GTX 1070 in a lot of games.
