You've put the specs down for 8gb and 4gb. This is the 4gb. If it was the 8gb I'd have bought! ☹️

All retailers seem to offloading the 480's as the refresh versions are out shortly.

Soon will pair something new with my old timer Q9550

Ordered one yesterday. Being delivered tomorrow. Just been emailed the free code for Doom 2016 which is part of the deal.

A good price, but I think I'll be holding out for an 8GB model.
It's getting tough to call whether the new RX 580 or an outgoing 480 is the way to go.

Well, RX 580 is mostly a rebrand but rumours point to it getting a process respin: still 14nm FinFET but going from LPE to LPP.

LPP is meant to be 'up to ten percent more performance' according to Samsung

But what that means for RX 580 is unknown. That CB story only goes on about 4% more Boost clocks, so either GF's version of Samsung's 14 FF LPP is not as good, or AMD are going to lower the TPU (possible meaning more overclocking potential for users).

​Interesting, thanks

Heat from me, got the Asus dual 4gb for £150 with doom in a recent deal and no problems apart from not being able to get freesync working with doom :P

The 8gb Gigabyte model is £80+ more, or a ASUS 8GB for £30 more.

The 480 seemed to rise again after a flurry of deals over the past few weeks. Nice to see one (a decent one) at the sub £160 mark again. Hot.

I only replaced mine about a month or two ago, stunning chip given it's about ten years old!

I tried Xeon equivalent E5440 with GTX 1050 (non Ti card), and E5440 would bottleneck the card in Fallout 4. The Witcher 3, GTA V and so on. So RX 480 is total overkill. IMO GTX 750TI, RX460, maybe GTX 950 is best to pair with that CPU.
Cool chip though, cheapest on ebay at the moment - £35, I recently bought i5 3470 for £50, lol.

I'd expect this will look very similar to what the 3xx series did. If not a bit more disappointing.

It's a real shame they are calling it "Polaris 20, 21" etc and a '5xx' when it's really nothing of the sort (From rumors, albeit).

People seem to be up in arms against Intel doing small incremental updates, but here comes AMD with a small incremental update... ;-)

You might want to watch the you tube channel jays two cents review of this card. As I remember the card didn't review to well. Just trying to help others out here.

Well im with u about overkilling with 480, was thinking not less then 470 or 1050ti. I need mainly for 1080p so lover then that its like wast of money. Had 460 on my mind but would be waste aswell will see

I know, been runing it now just for over a year swaped/oc'd from e8500, just for day to day basics was no point doing new build. Done some little up's for old timer nd its good to go another decade

Where's this ASUS GPU?

Never mind, found it overclockers.co.uk/asu…tml

This is a good deal but (there's always a but) with the 580 due within the next 2 months, this 480 is a hard sell, especially if the 8GB 580 does indeed come in at rumoured prices of £180 and with lower power and heat as well.

They have sorted out the heat problem with a bios upgrade.
