sapphire rx 480 nitro+ 8gb approx £220.00 with postage )@ Amazon France

£220.00 @ Amazon France
It was a little cheaper the other day, but still approx £200 for the better than reference 8gb Nitro+ at French Amazon if you have a no fee card. Very nearly going to bite at these prices Read More

Hey guys.

480 or 1060? In what terms should I compare the 2 and decide by then.

The 1060 outperforms the 480 in most games but you cant SLI 1060's if you wanted to where as you can XFire with 480's.

Surely for mining 4gb RX 470's would've made more sense due to the lower initial outlay?

The RX480 Nitro+ runs hotter than other manufacturers like MSI, XFX etc which is good time for Christmas.

I thought the MSI 20% cashback offer few days earlier was better deal?

480 is faster in most new games, while 1060- in old games. This Sapphire Nitro+ is great, as it runs at higher clocks than reference RX480, and it has proper cooling on all card components, including VRAM chips. In terms of which card to choose- RX480 is definitely better if you can pair it with freesync monitor. 1060 can not be paired with it, while similar g-sync monitors cost 100-200 pounds more for same experience. AMD is also 'the good' company, with many open standards and good performance even on older cards. nVidia is considered the 'greedy' one, with closed garden G-sync and Gameworks, and rumors that they constantly nerf their older hardware just to sell the new generation of cards. However, 1060 is more power efficient than this 480, using ~50W less in gaming.

You can continue living in denial if you want but it's common knowledge that NVIDIA has been involved in a lot of anti-competitive practices over the years.

They pay off games developers to implement their software frameworks (like NVIDIA GameWorks) not just to give them an edge over AMD but to effectively sabotage the performance of AMD cards.

They make everything proprietary because NVIDIA only looks out for NVIDIA while everything AMD makes is open source for the sake of the gaming community, such as FreeSync and Mantle (which later evolved to Vulkan), etc.

NVIDIA went as far as updating their drivers to disable your NVIDIA GPU when an AMD card is detected in the same system (for example if you want to use an AMD card for graphics and an NVIDIA card for PhysX). Who does that? Scum, that's who.

Who knows, maybe AMD turns into scumbags and NVIDIA turn into saints the moment AMD overtakes NVIDIA in market share but at the moment the underdog is the one to support unless of course you're hoping for poor competition, more expensive cards and much smaller performance upgrades with each upgrade.

Look at Intel vs AMD in the CPU market. Without much competition from AMD, Intel has been lazing about, each generation barely more powerful than the last and we're all still stuck at four cores for mainstream CPUs.

I'm kind of kicking myself for buying mine on Black Friday -- mine were the non-OC Nitros and they cost more than this.

The only games in which the 8GB 480 is faster than the 6GB 1060 are Hitman (DX12) and Doom (Vulkan). For your statement to be correct, only three PC games could have been released in the last six months. Spoiler alert: more than three PC games were released in the last six months.

As for G-Sync and FreeSync being the same... clearly you've only seen one of them. Because if you'd seen both, you'd know why one costs more than the other. Worth the extra money to most consumers? Probably not, but it's not greed, any more than the Vive costing more than Google Cardboard is greed. More expensive technology costs more.

And AMD being the "good" company? They're both as bad as each other. Just in the last ~18 months, we've had AMD no longer sending review samples to review sites who don't guarantee good reviews, AMD describing Fury as an "overclocker's dream" and then releasing it with locked voltages, Fury X and Polaris "official" benchmarks not being at all reproducible by third parties, AMD's Polaris presentation where they claimed that 480 Xfire performance would compete with the 1080 across the board. Oh, and claiming that all of their R9 and R7 GPUs have full FreeSync support - which simply isn't true. And that's without even mentioning Huddy...

Nvidia (sorry, I mean... what did you call them? nviDia?) have their issues, too, although it looks like your understanding of those issues is... well, it's consistent with the understanding in the rest of your comment. :{

This will be my forth rig. I know what I'm doing. Put it like this. Invest £x into a mining rig. After a year I'll have probably made back more than the cost of the hardware. When I sell the hardware even if I get only half back, I've made 50% on my 'investment'. No savings account can give me that.

The lack of headroom with the 480 it shouldn't be a concern. It's shocking how poorly they overclock.

Likely due to the rubbish Global Foundries 14nm process the current Polaris is based on, the 16nm TSMC process allowed nVidia to clock their GPU pretty high in comparison.

Can you profit of that?? From what I remember 4 R9 380's = $800 a year, thats pretty low considering the amount of power you would use.

Are you paying the electricity on 4 GFX cards running 24x7?

They run around 170 watts maxed out.

.170 kwatts 24*7*365=10,424 Kwatts.

10.4 megawatts of power per year.

https://www.ukpower.co.uk/home_energy/tariffs-per-unit-kwh

Suggests 12 pence per KWH.

1,250 in electricity *just for the graphics cards alone*. Add in the rest of the components and you are going to exceed 1,500 quid a year in electricity.

So, you're saying, on top of the 1500, and on top of the 800 you just spent, you made a profit?

2,300 a year, that's a LOT of money to be spending on crypto farming.

Not paying anywhere near that. My 6 card Rx480 rigs pull 810w from the wall. I pay 9p kWh

And yes, after electricity I turn a profit. £1730 in the last three months infact.

BTW. your maths is fundamentally wrong. It would be 0.17*24*365 or 0.17*24*7*52.
