Lovely card, i picked up one from Scan. It may also include CIV 6, so worth checking.

£199 at amazon with free delivery, currently OOS though - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-Radeon-GDDR5-Expess-Graphics/dp/B01H01E4CQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1485452158&sr=1-2&keywords=rx+480+8gb

Nice price but blower isnt often good enough for the cards heat. The nitro version of this is very sexy though it is more expensive. Still a pretty good deal for a very decent ultra 1080p card.

Can the rx490/500 be far behind?
I'm looking for a reason to upgrade my r9 290 but current polaris is a lateral move
Fingers crossed for a decent 10TFLOP card

The gigabyte AIB is only 230

I'm pretty sure it's only 225 on Ebuyer but ocuk has better customer service

Need to remember delivery from OCUK is £10. That card is also available from multiple vendors for £217ish.

£10 delivery so title is correct, unless you can get it free which most of us can't.

Blower cards are better in small form factor cases as they don't dump the heat back into the case so they don't cook your other components.

AMD cold

Cold is probably the last word used to describe AMD, in fact the cards usually run hotter than their nVidia equivalents but they are more competitively priced and often have longer lifespans due to better long term driver support. But I suspect you mean that because the card is AMD then it's a cold deal, in which case you are an idiot :)

I don't get why people want to spend over £200 for this card. I suggest getting 4GB version for less than £190. I got my for £188 gigabyte G1.

Tbh if you have a small form factor most people would opt for a nVidia equivalent, as they run cooler in general...

Ive just got myself a freesync monitor..... does it really make a big difference? I currently have a Geforce 1060 6gb (I didn't get buy the monitor for the freesync, it just comes as a feature).
I am debating selling my 1060 if the freesync is worth it!

Sure, it's about trade offs. Personally I don't buy nVidia due to their inflated prices and anti-consumer business practices. Plus AMD cards can run up to 90+ degrees so temps don't really matter so long as you aren't cooking the rest of your build with an open air cooler!

Well it all depends on what you value. Freesync will help make lower framerates feel smoother, so if you are running a game on Ultra but you can't quite hit a consistent 60 fps it will feel more like you are hitting it. Only problem with freesync is it doesn't work below certain framerates so you need to be hitting something like 40+. Other than that I imagine an 8GB RX 480 and a 6GB 1060 will have very similar performance so you could swap cards in confidence that you ought to get a better experience. Only downside really is you will lose any nVidia features like streaming.

Legit question.

AMD and NVIDIA offer similar cards at similar prices.

They have done this for ages. Went Vega comes out, AMD will match prices again.

The 290x, the 390x, the Fury X, and all sorts of other cards from AMD have been priced competitively with NVIDIA.

Why does NVIDIA get the label of "Inflated Prices"?

AMD simply do not have a medium-high or high end card right now. If the 4xx series didn't fail so hard, they wouldn't be charging 199 for the 480, they'd match the 1070. But Polaris has been a flop, so instead of just letting it bankrupt AMD, they offered the 480 at a budget price.

If AMD truly believed their rubbish they spouted about 100-300 price range cards for the normal consumer, why are they targeting a much more expensive card in Vega?

Most graphics cards sold around the world are targeted at the 100-250 sweet spot. But that doesn't mean you should have a flagship model to make your products more desirable from a marketability point of view. I'm sure Mercedes or bmw don't sell many formula 1 cars but they invest millions into it because of the prestige it brings.

The 200 price range gives you ultra 1080p performance and reasonable 1440p performance which is more than enough for most people.

Correct, however AMD are usually cheaper for the same performance card.

Nate1492

Because they usually cost more for the same performance, at least for the past 5 years or so.

Another example would be the prices of the 1080, they are ridiculous. Sure, AMD doesn't have a card to compete with it at the moment, and so nVidia go ahead and charge silly money.

The 480 is designed as mid-range card, I believe the RRP is somewhere around the $200-$240 mark. When taxes and currency conversion is said and done this ends up being £200-£240 in practice. It has not failed in this respect as it offers similar performance to the similarly priced nVidia 1060. Sure the 1070 is more powerful but it is also a £350+ card. The vast majority of people won't be spending that on a graphics card.

So, you just admitted to exactly what I was alluding to.

The 1060 and the 480 are nearly identical cards at nearly identical price points.

If NVIDIA was inflating it's prices, why does it have a card at the same price threshold?

The 1080 has no competition from AMD right now, but previous generation cards have been priced identically.

Again, what's the point you are making with the 1070 and 1080? They have no competition. They have the same price as the previous generation's equivalent cards.

AMD tried to price the Fury X at $649 launch, but it was such an utter failure they had to drop it. The Fury launched at $549.

Again, that's the point, the last version of AMD launched at exactly the same price points as the 1080.
