​how?
I returned my reference 290x to CEX sold the vouchers at 80% and got the 8gb version. Although it's not the quietest it is much better.

Obvious Nvidia fanboi


im a fan of the company that provides powerful graphics cards, currently that isnt AMD. If AMD announce something that turns out to compete with Nvidia with a more competitive price point, thats the card i might be replacing my aging 780 ti with. The card in this "deal" is garbage compared to a 1060, which i admit is pricier than the rx480, but its beaten by the low end of Nvidia's line up. The high prices that Nvidia command are just a symptom of a lack of competition. what else does amd have to offer? Not a lot.

Missing the DX12 benchmarks then? For me it's about future gaming, not the here and now, sure the 1060 beats the 480 with most of the DX11 games but it is the other way round with DX12 games where the 480 usually shines over the 1060

​the 1060 loses out to the rx480 now you know? this would also be better than a 780ti i think its time to upgrade hahaha

This is just pure misinformation. The 1060 and 480 now tie on average in DX11 and the 1060 loses by 6+% in DX12 titles:

Is there something wrong with these Asus ones? They're coming up in the deals loads lately
You can always add another RX480. Can't SLI a 1060.

yes i know, thats why im awaiting the amd vega announcement to see if they pull a rabbit out of the hat, and see how it affects pricing, and ultimately what i replace my "aging" 780ti with!

and currently, amd can beat a 1070 with what? or a 1080 with what? amd cards are currently garbage. lets see what vega brings.
Having bought one of these recently, I simply cannot recommend it.

Google "RX480 black screen" to see just how flakey this card is. Loads of people having an awful lot of issues with the card. Its a shame as, contrary to bouncy99s comments above, when the card works its a great performer. But please be informed before you blow over 150 notes on this.

My 480 along with 3 of my friends has been working flawlessly ever since we got them in October. I haven't heard of many flaky 480s at all.

Completely agree...I'm no AMD fanboi, but your comment was incorrect re the 1060 vs 480. AMD have been far too late to market with Vega and have surrendered the high end to Nvidia for a whole generation...but needs must. They invested so much in Ryzen and they have such a limited budget compared to Nvidia and Intel and fight on two fronts. We all should pray they do well with both Ryzen and Vega to introduce healthy competition. Vega, with HBM2 and biggest redesign since the original GCN (apparently) could be a big step forward for AMD but I really feel they can't simply be matching the 10 series of Nvidia, they have to be beating them 15-20% and be competitive with Volta at a lower price point.

Totally agree, unfortunately it appears ryzen may be a flop in gaming performance, according to some early reports. They are blaming a lack of optimisation for their product, so we shall see.
bouncy99

we shall see.


Yep, I think by the time the R5s are released they could be a very good choice. Bugs will likely be ironed out and they should offer very good price/performance ratio. I'd imagine with slightly higher clocks and a bit of optimisation they will match similarly priced Intel chips in gaming but blow them out of the water for anything multithreaded. I plan to get an R5 for my next build (think 6 core may be the sweet spot) *if* they iron out the issues. But new architectures usually have some teething problems. Personally, I'd rather support the underdog, provided I get best price/performance ratio I can within my budget, as I think it's better for the industry.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare runs faster on AMD's RX 480, compared to … Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare runs faster on AMD's RX 480, compared to its Nvidia rival, the GTX 1060. It's an advantage that plays out consistently, as you can see in our Infinite Warfare PC performance analysis. But here's the thing: running these GPUs with an i7 - as we did above - essentially offers something akin to a bottomless pit of CPU power, and the balance of power between the green and red teams changes rapidly when you pair each GPU with a less capable processor, like the Pentium G4560 we're reviewing here.And you can see that in the shot below, taken mere seconds later. As soon as the action intensifies, the RX 480 suddenly loses a lot of performance. Minimum frame-rate actually hits 45fps in our tests - 20fps lower than the GTX 1060. And that's important when choosing a graphics card to pair with a less capable CPU. AMD's DirectX 11 driver lacks multi-threading capabilities and is significantly less optimal than Nvidia's, meaning that when the CPU is taxed, certain titles lost a lot of performance (and we stress, not all games exhibit the issue, but you have no guarantee which titles will be affected and which are fine).


That's not quite accurate. Firstly, that's the only source for the 480 now matching/beating the 1060 - a similar article a few weeks later had the 480 still slightly behind the 1060, so we can take it that the 480 has closed a lot of the gap, but relying on a single source to say the 480 is now faster is a bit... optimistic, shall we say?

Except... notice what CPU those tests are using. I doubt many gamers pair a £150 card with a £300+ i7 CPU, which is what you'd need to get those results. If you can find comparisons of the 480 and 1060 using i5s and i3s, you can see how the 1060 doesn't drop in performance as much as the 480 does when paired with a weaker CPU. So, while it's fair to say that the 480 has closed the gap on i7 systems, it's wrong of you to assume that carries across to all systems ("pure misinformation", one might say ;)).

Here, don't take my word for it:


And if you're looking at putting together a Steam Machine, or using Linux, the 1060 clearly annihilates the 480, of course.

All that said, £156 is a great price for the 4GB 480. It's a budget card, and that 4GB may well be exhausted this year, but it's going to be an excellent purchase for someone with a decent CPU who only uses Windows and has a fairly strict £150 budget. In that case, it's definitely better value for money than the £210 6GB 1060.

Nice Amazon refund hehe
