HOLY SMOKES!
Now that's a deal.
Semi-decent price but again another RX 480 without a backplate. Polaris runs BLOODY hot!

But seriously this is just getting ridiculous. 480s cheaper than 470s. WTF!?

Oh I also had to laugh at this

Free shipping on all orders over £500



Wow!

if you are going to spend 150 on a gpu im sure you have another fiva extra for the next day delivery c'mon now

Screw it, ordered. I'm getting bored of my 970 and would like a new toy. It wont be a big upgrade, but It shouldn't cost me much either so *shrug

Wouldn't that be a side-grade (or even a step down)?
Wow - bargain! I've just returned my Sapphire RX 460 4GB to Amazon as I wasn't impressed with the performance - for another £40 I can get this - amazing price.

Barely an upgrade. Waste of money tbh.
i think he means upgrading to a newer model tbh i dont think he cares much about the comparison etc.
Its a bigger upgrade than the benchmarks linked suggest, as the 480 has matured well since release. Also it looks like they used a reference card which throttle badly.

But I agree that its not worth it, I just want a new toy really.
WENT FOR IT
few quids cheaper here with free next day delivery, couldnt post thread cuz UKHD didnt approve of site but if you shop at CDKEYS then go for it, zippytom and CDKEYS are one company - zippytom.com/asu…ady
I ordered this earlier today. Been looking for info on it, but not much. Seems to be decent. Good price regardless.

Just a heads up, the Red Devil 470 is £137.39 (+£5.99 delivery) £143.38 delivered at Unatechnology, although I've never shopped with them before.

I was looking at teardowns due to the bad rep his (it would seem alot is possibly unjustified now) but came across this.

​Are you saying it needs a backplate cause it runs hot? backplates are for reinforcement and asthetics.
You can spend £1000 on the best GPU in the world, but the back plate won't cool it by even 1 degree. False marketing.
Hot! I got the RX470 for £150 during Black Friday and I'm running BF1 at 1080p on ultra settings

Personally I prefer not to have a backplate as I have several PCs with mATX boards with 4 ram slots and a GPU backplate fouls the clips on the ram slots and won't fit in the PCIe slot properly.

These days £1000 doesn't even buy you the best GPU; the Titan X(P) is nearly £1200! oO

That aside, yeah, backplates are for aesthetics and rigidity, not cooling.

Er no. They also help in cooling the vrms hence why good backplates are made out of aluminium.

No they don't.

Backplates have heat-pads on them, little sticky things. This makes direct touch with the Vram.

Does it help cool the entire GPU? No.
Can you attach the heat-pads without a backplate? Yeah
Does the backplate itself cool down the GPU? No.

​lets agree to disagree.



Fair enough. In any case rigidity and keeping dust/water off components would be more than enough reasons without thermals coming into play. My own view is that any manufacturer who doesn't include one is just cheaping out.
This is a ridiculous price. Probably best deal on a graphics card for circa £150 in several years. I am tempted but want to go for a mini itx build and fear this may be too big

Yeah I'm not going to get into an argument here over something and nothing but I think you're getting confused between the backplate i.e. the underside and the heatsink i.e. topside.
why on earth are you guys bothered about backplates? just make sure you have a pc case with good airflow and keep it breezy on the inside im sure it will all be alright...then just before summer comes along sell it and buy a gtx...or the new vega 500...simple.

Thermal pads.

Vram has gotten too hot, so burned through the back. EVGA solved this by adding thermal pads on the back.
Edited by: "Salfordgirl1" 18th Feb 2017
not only did you have to request thermal pads from EVGA but it was also DIY...then they came out with the ICX model where you had to send you previous 1070/1080 model back and pay like 75 quid more so they can send you back the new ICX

I'm sorry, but you're completely wrong about this. Thermal pads don't provide any cooling by themselves. They merely provide effective heat transfer to another surface. You need something pressing against both sides of a thermal pad for it to do anything constructive. Just placed on a surface by themselves, at best they'll do nothing and at worst they'll act as a slight insulator. You can't just slap them on the back of a card without a backplate (or you can, but it'd be stupid to). When connected to a large piece of metal (i.e. the backplate), they transfer the heat from the component into the metal, which can then be cooled via airflow.

A backplate with thermal pads attached to the PCB absolutely will provide some cooling, even if it's fairly negligible. It's not very useful when it comes to the core itself (as evidenced by the LTT video that people are going to now spam to "prove" that backplates do nothing), but they can provide minor additional effective cooling to the VRM area in particular (or VRAM chips on the back of the card, but not many modern cards have any on the rear due to the larger size of modern modules). However, that's only the case if there are thermal pads in place to facilitate heat transfer. Many backplates have no thermal pads at all, and thus do absolutely nothing besides look pretty.

Of course, Luke didn't test this in his highly-scientific five minute video and focused entirely on core temperatures. Which is somewhat fair, given that Gigabyte's snake oil copper plate over the core was the focus of the video. However, it certainly doesn't change the fact that a large piece of metal connected to the back of the board via thermal pads is going to wick some heat away from the PCB. EVGA recently used this to help with their overheating VRMs, along with a secondary plate on the inside of the cooler (which is really no different from the backplate in terms of potential function).

No. They solved it by adding thermal pads between the tops of the VRM/Memory and the heatsink NOT by adding thermal pads to the back!
From a hd 7950 should i get the 4gb or the 8gb verion?? gonna have this card for 3years +?

any advice please also why they getting so cheap
