The Power of x480
Staff member

I have polaris, MSI RX 480 and I have no issues with the ReLive functionality on my system as experienced by the creator of the above video. I am using same version, Radeon Software Version 16.12.1.
I actually find the recording functionality very satisfying. It doesn't work on odd games like, Half Life 1 (finally when I started playing it few days ago) but it does work on modern games like Rocket League, Quantum Break, Portal 2 and Steep (new game from Ubisoft).

In fact, I am planning to upload the steep gameplay as I recorded from ReLive soon.

So good to hear that RX480 is aging better than nvidia GPUs.

Because of the driver updates brought out by AMD, now nvidia is losing out to AMD even in DirectX 11 games where already AMD is dominating in DirectX 12 games using Vulkan.

For 1080p Gaming & Future Proofing:

Buy the Sapphire RX470 8GB Nitro+ OC @ 20.5k from SAPPHIRE GRAPHICS CARD RADEON RX 470 8GB DDR5 NITRO+ OC

First off, I will say that my decision was based on three things:
1) Future Proofing
2) Price to Performance
3) 1080p Gaming

If you compare the reference specs of the two cards, you see that the RX 470 has only ~89% of the specs of the RX 480.

However, thanks to Sapphire's customizing, that percentage gets bumped up to ~93% with the Nitro+ models. That's because Sapphire has increased the base clock and the memory speed, and thus the memory bandwidth --and they've done a better job with the 470 percentage wise, than with the 480. And that 4% bump is a game changer when you look at the cost.

GTX 1080 was dropped to 500$ by nvidia last week because of 1080Ti launch. Wait for pricing to go down here as well. 50% premium over USA pricing isn't worth it IMO. You already have a 1060 Amp!

Yeah true! I have plans to upgrade my Rig 2 in my signature (preferably to Ryzen). But I can't buy everything at one shot so gotta buy 1 component after another. So thought of hoarding the GPU :p since thats the lowest price for a GTX1080 I have seen in last few months.

Hopefully 1080 comes down to Rs 40k! :p

Talk to the hand!!!

Highly unlikely. Unless AMD offers groundbreaking performance on Vega, the high end price range most probably will not see a major shift in price apart from 5-7k price drop. 1080 will continue to retail >50K for atleast a year(Based on current trends)

is buying a 40k gpu that will not be worth even 10k after 3-4 years really going to be worthwhile?
