So Polaris 10 = R9 480 and Polaris 11 = R9 470? Nvidia's pricing for their Pascal cards is going to be insane if AMD offers no competition. Was hoping to upgrade soon, but might just hold off to the end of the year and do a Vega + Zen build.

So either one of the 480's will be my spouses gpu then. I will wait with upgrade till Vega. Hoho.

Hilbert. please check this 36 x 64 = 2304 (Radeon R9 480 / Polaris 10) 40 x 64 = 2304 (Radeon R9 480X / Ploaris 10) It should be 2560
Also Ploaris.

So exciting! 130watt TDP 😀 that's a whole different ballgame. Can't wait to see the actual numbers for these things.

Really hope AMD delivers this time! Would be good for both camps. Very much looking forward to Zen as well! Might just be the one to put my 3570k to sleep. It's going way too strong !

I so hope the new AMD GPU,s are better than NVidias Pascal it will bring competition back to the GPU market, I am skipping this generation I am waiting for the next my 980ti,s should be good for a while and to be honest current games are disappointing so I am playing my older games so don't need anymore GPU power. ( 1 to 2 year old games)

Still just a downsizing Gen probably. Just like 9 Series sort of started out.

So the performance for the R9 480/480X will be along the same lines as the R9 380/380X but probably with less heat production and less power consumption? So we are looking at a new card probably just north of the 300 Euro mark, maybe 300-350? Be interesting to see what the performance is between the 380X/480X and whether the new cards will also have 8Gb+ VRam. If new card has less ram and the performance is similar, it all comes down to the price. If the new cards is around the 300 euro mark, why not just buy a Fury Nano? I'm slightly confused by that strategy, not really what i was expecting.
That 470 most likely will be around the performance of a 380x+ and the 480 cards will be way more powerful. Still anyone with a Fury X or 980 ti would be most likely sidegrading with the upcoming cards more or less. They are in the end new gcn cards not just downsized cards.

Wait so the 480 is the fastest card AMD is launching this year?

F*ck everything actually, just wanna see performance numbers.

i am more interested in how much maximum clocks this gpus can achieve..

Am I missing something here? Who in their right mind would prefer the new cards (AMD 470, 480 etc) with same/similar performance/price with the only difference being power consumption? Which will save mayyyybe $2-3 a month of electricity? I would take a 100W 470 and a 260W 480 at the same price with double the performance even if it means double power consumption as well. Unless I'm missing the big picture here, since in my defense I'm a bit tired and sleepy. :P
Yeah, I don't really get it. So Polaris 10/11 are essentially just replacing a 390x and a 370. What about Fury X and Fury? AMD has no product for that this year? I mean I didn't expect full size chips, but I did expect something faster then what we had last year. If Nvidia does the same thing and has no replacement for the 980Ti, I'm going to be extremely disappointed.

Koniakki Those who praised Kepler GK104 and maxwell GM204 low power and pushed it in every conversation like its golden grail lol I personally never cared about gpu power consumption, even if its higher as long as it justifies its performance boost. Looks like this Polaris is just a sidegrade gpu with better power consumption, same with new Nv mid-range "perf." GP104 chip. Denial Yeah Fury stays "king" until Vega, same by NV and 980Ti until full Pascal shows up.

Well I mean it's nice to have good power consumption but I also want it to come with more performance. I don't care if you can hit 2.5x performance per watt if the final chip is less then what we have now.

Well, this is still the rumor and if these are the replacements for the 380/370, then they are kinda awesome. I don't believe that they will have anything regarding the higher models leaked yet. The clocks also remain a question still.

To be expected. When ATI released the 2900XT, their answer was that their methodology for solving issues was through brute force first (wattage), efficiency later. Evidence of this pattern has been seen ever since. This release falls in the efficiency phase. Increased performance would be nice but does not need to be. Remind me again, how large of a slice is the enthusiast market?

Just what I thought - probably some minor improvements in what actually matters for gamers - FPS. And yet everybody was throwing +40% and so on around
These are the middle of the pack replacements of the 370 and the 380. If the specs are true they will be very close to +40%.
