    Considering almost 980 performance with 110W power draw under load, I'll place it on par if not higher than 1070.
    Edit: turns out 110W for the chip, indeed 150W for the whole card...

      I believe around 85 watts under load for rx480.

        BTW you seem like you gained weight this year. But that's no reason to be like that while holding your RX 480. Just look around you, and see all you have build over the years: Phoronix, openbenchmarking, all those compile servers you have back there. Be proud!
        BTW. Are you european? Or asain? Because I find that my European and asain department mates make comments like this and don't realize how amazingly rude it is in American culture.

          Considering that the "opponent" is not out yet and hasn't even been shown yet, the 480 at this point should beat everything as for price-performance ratio, probably power-performance too. Otherwise AMD could be in trouble.

            Bigger chips usually has a better performance/power ratio. I'd be really surprised if RX 480 will be better than 1070/1080 in that regard. But performance/price will be definitely better.

              Actually I was going to say he looks great with the beard! I don't know about anyone else but I haven't seen it before.

                Lol, I actually thought that was someone else. I thought his hair was darker, from seeing the "About the Author" pic, so many times. Comparing them side-by-side, it was just a perceptual thing, since nothing in the older picture is very dark.

                Doesn't matter what your job, it can be difficult for many people to stay excited and enthusiastic, day after day, year after year. Work has a way of taking the fun out of things. And I say that as someone who likes my job.

                  RX 480's TDP is 150 watts.

                    Indirectly, because they generally aren't so dependent on clock speed. But the GTX 10xx series is clocked pretty high, so I think RX 480 might come out ahead.

                      The Ashes Async_Compute benchmark we all saw goes like this: 2x RX480 @11Tflops and 90% utilization(150 watts for both), had 10% more performance than a GTX1080 @9Tflops and 100% utilization(180 watts), wile the GTX was cheating with snow. Meaning that the +50% performance per flop comparison that Nvidia had is now lost and AMD does have a +35% performance per watt advantage (probably because of the lithography).

                      I also propose to stop benchmarking until there is at least one Async_Compute game on Linux, because you give false impressions about AMD GPUs.
