You beat me to it :P

Stonking deal. Depending on what Santa delivers tomorrow, I might order one (if there are any left).

An up to date review for anyone considering one:

Any RX480 8GB would be a good deal at this price, but this one is the 'all bells and whistles' model.

hooooootttttt

Just a heads up, new cards are coming out next year and the year after and the year after and the year after and then after that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that and that

Now that is just silly. I'd wait 85 years but not 86 for a decent refresh.

this or gtx970?

Is the MSI RX480 any better then this?! Just like satchef1 if nothing else comes alone might get this. Missed out all Black Friday and since happened deals.

Tempted, still on a 7850 that is slowly dying.

if this comes with civ6 you can sell the code which reduces the effective cost as well.

Just a bit steep!

this a massive upgrade from a 2gb 760? or should I stay on team green and go for 11 hundred series, I heard AMD is bad for drivers and stuff has that improved?
Edited by: "kamy786rulz" 24th Dec 2016

This card does get a bit loud when under heavy use, if that bothers you. It's a great price for the performance especially if you want to play DX12 or Vulkan games like Hitman and Doom.

Destroys the 760. Utterly. Nothing in the class at this price compares. 1060 is 30 more expensive and about 2% faster in dx11. Dx12 and vulcan this beats the 1060

Cheaper here. Not exactly same model but whatever amazon.co.uk/gp/…all

Its £219?

Scan and no mention of warranty so I guess 1 year and arguing with Scan isn't fun.

JimBobJr

Its £219?




Yes. No postage cost though. With scan it's 222 with postage and vat, not 209 like the post suggests.

Also like new is 211 not 222

Scan has free postage for 20 posts on their forum or whatever, not exactly difficult and thats the warehouse deal price, not new

And has a horrible stock cooler.
The same one on Amazon is 239.99

Yes. Like new from aw is basically new. Someone bought it and returned it. 1 year warranty is still there.

Didn't know about the forum posts equal free postage.

Would still buy from amazon over scan though

Presuming the gtx 970 is 2nd hand and significantly cheaper the 970. Else this is pretty hard to beat for the money new.

None of the coolers on the rx 480 do anything different temp wise that matter except for the msi and ultimately water cooling.

Best RX480 on the market. My one gets to 1.4 ghz out of the box. Any game 1080 over 60 fps on all maxed out. Max core temp 72C in my shabby HP Elitedesk 800 case. Just love it.

Silicon lottery is ultimately luck. Nice one.

crap delivery prices, does the 20 forum post thing work for Northern Ireland?

Is this much better than a R290x?

Garbage.

imcconvey

Garbage.



Oops, fat fingers. Meant to ask you to elaborate but hit like instead! I'm interested to know what you'd buy at this price point that makes this deal garbage?

got a evga superclocked gtx1060 on order for £237.00 how will this compare ?

Or slowly getting old, as mine is too.

Mine has given me random POST failures since new, but any other machine I put it in its been fine. I get the no GFX card beeps, have to wait a few minutes then its fine. It doesn't appear to be the PSU either as I tested a much hungrier card in there, a mate had the exact same problem with this card. Its really odd, once its on it works great, but its now 50/50 if I can turn on my PC!

1060 is 2% faster in dx11. Rx480 is faster in dx12 by about 5 - 10 %. Same for vulcan.

Pci slots is probably goosed or the CPU, one of the two most likely. CPU pcI lanes might be on the way out

I'm on a 280 / 7950. Still eats everything at ultra at 1080p ..... which is annoying.... need an excuse to upgrade...

Changed significantly, there's a few good articles out there recently which dictate how AMD have improved the drivers to such a degree that the 480 has eclipsed the 1060.

Both of these were before the recent 16.12 ReLive driver set which I'd expect will have further improved performance. In addition, with Radeon Chill you can now ensure your card is working as effectively as possible whilst still delivering your frame target (lower power, less heat, less fan).
