RX480 and Polaris Thread

Mods changed my name :(
AMD unveiled RX480 for $199. Even with our 9024% taxes it should be 20k graphic card that has same performance as a 980 (55k card).


What do you think?

Its now a tough choice between 1070 and 480
The problem with 1070 is poor async compute. so when games go dx 12, it will get pwned by 480.

Expect 24k for the 8gb edition. This one beats 980.

knowing our market,it'l most likely be 25-30k range.

The information out so far is exciting although yet to be real world verified. AMD fans are over the moon all over.

Is there any news of an even lower priced but still half-decent card in this new architecture? Say around 10 - 12 K?

Indian prices of the last few generations of AMD's cards were all f**ed up (and they still are) coupled with thin availability, just hoping whatever issues they were having will be corrected this time.

For some reason in India, AMD cards cost more than Nvidia cards. The 1070 will definitely be 25k+, so the 480 might start out similar or 2-3k more...

RX 480 has been listed at 250$ at few websites, 16k
16 * 1.35 = 21.6
so expect initial prize of 22k - 25k

if high stocks, 22k, low stocks 25k.
