What are the lead times quoted for delivery? My Asus 1060 was 18 of August to 15th of September.

Would be nice if they were actually selling these rather than pre-order.

Price is coming back down, but stock isn't easy to find.

Great price, got mine for £209 and loving it.

Well it all depends whether or not it has the 8 samsung memory chips on the board, if it has then happy days :) This will of course invalidate your warranty!

No custom cards can be flashed to 8GB, it's just reference ones.

Custom? You mean Retail? And I beg to differ.

I mean custom as in not reference design like the Nitro+ isn't. Reference RX480s look like this. If these have the Samsung Ram then it is probably flashable to 8GB.

You can beg to differ all you want but can you link me to one example of someone flashing a 4GB custom card (so it doesn't look like the picture I linked) to 8GB?

Don't buy this card if you expect to be able to flash it to 8GB, it won't work.

I guess they haven't read reviews and studied the benchmark results.

Hopefully these will continue to drop in price with the run up to Christmas, especially with the introduction of the competing 3GB 1060 cards. The cheapest I can find the 8GB version of the RX 470 OC Nitro is £220, around £30 more. The cheapest I can find the MSI AMD Radeon RX 470 GAMING X is £217.The 8GB version of the RX 480 Nitro seems to be £260. I appreciate the advantage of the 8GB cards but I find it hard to reconcile the current price difference. Have some more heat.

Agreed. If we wanna wait for these sort of dispatched within 1-2 months like my 1060 it's worth going for that instead. 6gb for 230 is OK. As much as I used to love my amd I'm not paying 250 for the 8gb card... 4gb is not that future proof anymore.

RX 480 4GB not bad card for money : )

I have looked my self to get 2 of them for crossfire - on paper will look very good 2 x card some games scales very well but the issues is drivers and studering etc ... This what holds me to get AMD cards Thinking to leave AMD got to NVIDIA

Thinking maybe
2 x GTX 980 for £250 x 2 but then you can get GTX 1080
2 x GTX 970 4GB for £170 x 2 But then GTX 1070 for same money

I have PS4 and old crossfire HD 7970 and day to day Im more happy to play on PS4
Yes PS4 up scaling everything to 1080 p maybe 30 fps + but games experience PS4 I think for the price is very good
Now next year xbox scorpio "4K" coming + PS 4.5 as well so does it worth to buy 2 x RX 480 ??? for nearly £400 pounds ?

HD 7970 the GPU is very powerful the problem is ram only 3GB it cannt do ultra high details on 2k

Maybe will stay on PS4 as steam games can not be traded like PS4

+ next Year PS4 can be traded to xbox scorpio etc ..... So I can get some money back .

What I mean PS4 better for money value Games can traded , and bought second hand

I have currently a HD7970, is this or the 8gb rx worth upfrading to?
#32
Just doing a build atm. Going to have Core i5-6500 3.2GHz. I had budgeted for GFX at £250 or thereabouts but now wondering if I should get this card & spend the saving on a bigger SSD, or maybe a Kraken watercooler (I won't be OC the cpu - it's just that I find air coolers rather cumbersome & ugly). Had I intended to OC I would be going for the 6600K chip instead.

Any thoughts? More expensive GFX card or spend elsewhere?

Performance on both is largely the same, although 8GB has a very slight edge. However, as Digital Foundry and many other places have pointed out, 8gb doesn't really make a lot of sense for this card. 8gb gives it the memory needed for 1440p and 4k, but the speed of the card isn't really suitably matched to those resolutions. This is a 2K (1080p) card

Advice from most buying sites has been to avoid the 8gb card unless you have very specific requirements

I would personally put the extra money towards a better GPU. Maybe a 1060?

If you're gaming at 1080p then this or even a 470 would suffice. If you're ever looking at going higher res then pick a different card, but bear in mind cards with any future in 1440p or 4k are £350 up as you need to be looking at a 1070 or higher

The 1060 isn't a better GPU really. The thing to do is to avoid the GTX 1060 3GB which is not only slower (less shaders) but 3GB is really pushing it already in 2016 and will probably age poorly.
Both this and the 1060 perform about the same. Certainly no more than ±10% unless in some game which heavily favours one architecture or the other (Doom running Vulkan for AMD, or similar outliners which favour Nvidia). Actually, Computebase.de recently did a custom 480 vs custom 1060 and the average was 5% in favour of the GTX1060. Since the GTX1060 3GB is best avoided, and dual fan* 6GB versions are ~ £240+ this is good value.
* dual fan is a bit less relevant for the GTX1060 since it does use about 40W less power, but the cheaper single fan GTX1060 look a bit too cheaply made to me.

That's from Scan. Amazon themselves has gone up but 'only' to £209.99. Which is still £22+ more making this not so great value. So that unless also planing to get a variable sync monitor (since FreeSync is way cheaper than GSync), the 6GB GTX1060 might a better bet.

Good card but don't overlook the 970 still a good card can be had for £170

Nope, check how the 970 performs in new games like DOOM, Deus Ex or Warhammer. The 480 has a massive performance advantage and the 970 struggles to offer decent framerates. I wouldn't recommend the 970 in 2016. It's old and is getting fast left behind by Nvidia. I would recommend a 470 over a 970 too.

970 all day over this !

Agreed not much point upgrading to either a rx 470/480 over a GTX 970. Considering you can get a 970 for £140 the performance isn't worth it.
