was recommended to NOT get an RX480 - not at its current price - by my hardware guy and in any case wait until after christmas
Currently $260 USD. You'd be a fool to buy anything else that is close to that price range.
Those cards have a 275w TDP, whereas my Nano is 175w.
This particular card is also pretty quiet, with most reviews putting it around 33db under load.
That's pretty good before you even put a custom fan profile on it.
The magic for these things isn't in their overclocking ability, it's the undervolting.
I have my Nano undervolted 30mv no problemo. Some Tri-X Fury owners have reported being able to undervolt even more, in some cases 70-100mv (LOL).
Conversely while they aren't the full Fiji chip, they DO overclock a bit better than the Nano/FuryX which means you *could* oc to Nano/FuryX levels.
If I didn't build an ITX machine, I would have gone for that card.
If these cards were still $600+ I wouldn't recommend them.
I'm just sayin if you deal in US currency, the current price point is too good to pass up.
Yes, specific custom models, like the MSI rx 480 havent really moved (much) from MSRP. But even the 290 for the MSI seem to be not such a baad value. As posted in my link, other models can be had for like 240-250.
A decent deal too was a sapphire rx470 8gb for 200 a few days ago at Saturn. For a FHD setup i d take that over a 480 even.
Imo past christmas pricing for these hardly changes much. General price might fall slightly, but then again the christmas time usually has more deals. The only reason to wait would be waiting for Vega i guess. But that will probably be late q1 at best, no?
300 is kinda my upper end for gpu anyway though. So now is as good as ever ;P
At sub 300€ price i might consider a Fury ... but you dont get them for that here ;P
Also, as pointed out the TDP is higher, only 4gb ...
Probably could run one on my 500w PSU. But i kinda prefer newer more efficient generations i guess.
That said, my rx480 actually arrived today

4gb HBM has been proven time and time again to NOT be a limitation of the Fury cards.
As a single card, they are NOT for 4k.
Here's a fairly old article on the matter: https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/2...980-ti-titan-x
The article is from 2015 so performance numbers have drastically improved since (thanks to AMD FineWine Technology), but they clearly go over what 4gb HBM is capable of in comparison to the 980ti & TitanX.
I work a block away from a big ncix store which is awesome. When I can start buying kit I just walk 5 minutes to pick it all up then bring it home with me after work Only catch is I get ripped off buying using maple money
Got my 1050ti + i5 3470 box home and it's tearing through everything I throw at it, only thing it couldn't play completely maxed out was Metro. It can even do Fallout 4 at all ultra but it is only at 1080p. I got the Asus 4GB dual fan OC 1050ti, it was a bit of a struggle fitting it onto the BTX board because the cpu heatsink got in the way, rotating it fixed that though

ok sorry buddy didn't mean to offend your gpu but good point, I get like 50fps but I literally played it for 10 minutes
I can believe a lot of things, but a 1050ti *actually* playable in FO4 Ultra is a bit of a stretch.
The whole 1050 line seem like total wastes, just like the RX460. The price gap is so small, that unless there's a regional issue you're probably better with a RX470.
The 1060 is too much money to compare, because then the RX480 becomes the better buy anyhow. It's like they were designed to simply fill the gap as low tdp cards to fit into laptops and OEM desktops.
Right now in Canada the cost difference between an EVGA 1050ti & an ASUS ROG RX470 is $30, PLUS you get Hitman fo free
Sure do but for my niche needs the 1050ti cannot be beat. Find me a better performing card powered only by the pcie lane
>im happy with the card i bought
>"no ur not lol there are better cards"
MAX damage posting
Lagman should sell his new GPU right now because someone on the Internet doubts he can play some shit game at ultra.
Got both my 1080 with a vendor-provided closed liquid loop, same with the CPU, and no matter what I throw at it there's barely any noise at all.
Are you an engineer? -- Quack
thanks for sticking up for me friends
I got the 480 and I am really liking it. It is especially nice with my Freesync monitor.
