    Yep, pretty old news, videocardz did it way before. wccftech did it yesterday and g3d picked it up as well today.

    Here are comparisons of different cards and two C7 results, surprisingly Fury card are the worst of the bunch in GT4 and behind 390 in GT3 which is why their overall graphics scores suffer and are less than 390 while being close to 480.

    Oh I understand why there has to be a hard limit of 16 tris per wave. However, Jawed is saying the actual limit is 4 tris per wave, not 16.

    Some possibly new data, now that we've gone down this path:
    (From: PlayStation 4K - Codename Neo - Technical analysis)
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-06-10-sony-confirms-playstation-4k

    Sony has admitted to a premium PS4, and that the platforms are not completely interchangeable at a hardware level. The inference is being drawn that Polaris tech might be in the chip.

    Possibly, there is going to a be a notably larger chip with Polaris graphics capability, just not in discrete.
    GPU-wise, it doesn't sound like this will be stronger than the 480 line, but if there were a question of whether AMD would choose to put out a chip with a memory bus and silicon area in the range of GP104--this might be the answer.

    That's odd with the different game tests... At least I'm beating "everyone" in gametest 1 and 2 haha.

    Are there any known Firestrike scores for the RX480?

    Heh, it would be amusing if the Doom Vulcan patch was being held off in order to showcase it on Rx480. That would certainly be a first for an iD Software game.

    As with anything in the world, you can spend more for a better experience. A 1,000,000 USD car will offer better performance than a 20,000 USD car. But when it often takes a GPU (not even including the rest of the PC) costing roughly the same as a console to offer a better graphical experience, that console is quite obviously punching far above it's weight.

    Apologies. That was my last post on the subject here. And since it was the last post, I figured why not throw in the obligatory car analogy. :D

    DavidGraham can have the last word if he wants.

    I like that the fins have gone back to being horizontal. There's more exhaust out of the back and the possibility for direct cooling from intake with that design.

    I just want to know if any of the aio water cooler brackets fit on it. Sub 150 w with a h60 rad on it would be really nice. It would be silent

    Looks OK to me & as long as it keeps the thing cool I wouldn't be seeing it after installation anyway since its on the bottom side, in the case, on the floor, to the side, under the desk.

    If the stars align correctly and AMD takes advantage, the 480 could end up looking really great. Nvidia has made next to no gains on dx12, which means the current status quo remains. A 390 defeats a 980 in most dx12 games currently. Which means the 480 should be above that if AMD pushes benchmarks with dx12 and vulkan. additionally, they beat or come really close to a 980ti with a 390x in something likes ashes (titan x often beat). So a 480 in dx12 could look really good vs a 1070
