May have been a typo but on the Ars Technica livestream they said the Rx 480 is 75 watts
Alienware had one in a backpack
You think 470 is cut P10? Actually you know what, you are probably correct.Wonder if those 470s can be unlocked.
They're telling us a $200 GPU will be as fast as a GTX 1070/1080? Doubtful, but that is what is needed to run VR and high resolutions with high settings.
Frankly, this whole thing is weird.
It DEFINITELY is breaking in a way that would back up Kyle's article.
Gotta give credit for AMD putting lipstick on a pig however.
Although it has more to do with their shitty marketing department who doesn't know how to manage expectations.
Yes, it does. And that's weird.
I mean, of course it can still work as 950/960 relationship, where 950 has 6-pin for "just in case" situation, but nonetheless, that does mean that P10 is relatively power hungry.
My hope is the RX480 is about 20% short of the 1070 at $200. If AMD can manage that, they will hit a home run.
The 480 is a total cost play. It costs two hundred bucks.Yep I'm hoping that's the level of performance they can achieve with this thing. Anything less than that and I will lose interest and not recommend it to anyone.
I both agree and disagree.they did what they always said. Mainstream first for the last year. How the hell does that mean they put lipstick on a pig? What about cheap good performing cards means that it's some how a bad thing or their is a conspiracy behind it. We will see. Wait for the reviews.

You get R9-390x/GTX980-class performance for $200, and you "won't recommend it to anyone"?
What has happened to the $300 part that was supposed to launch.
That seems like an odd cut-off point to me.If it is within 20% of the stock 1070 it will have my overwhelming recommendation. Keep in mind I'm recommending this thing to friends who are building new systems and that's the minimum level of performance we expect from AMD at $200-$250.
RX 460 looks like the original baby Maxwell GTX 750 (the same one that PC Perspective planted in darn near everything causing Mucho Consternation).
I just checked how 950s look like, and compared to RX460, their coolers are just huge.
When I heard Lisa Su speak, what I heard was "most PC gamers buy GPUs in the $100-$300 price range, so that is what we're targeting" or something like that. I didn't take it literally as them having a $99 and $299 product to bookend the RX 480. But the RX 480 4GB is $199. Factor in the 8GB cost, then AIB OC models, and you start to get close to $300. That's probably where we're going to be.
