      And how is performance of this rx480 ? Is it any better than geforce 1070 ? As i see right now, there is no point in buying anything slower than 1070, and 1080 if you want to go all out, but 1070 seems to be good for 1440p gaming. While nvidia drivers are crap lately, amd's are even worse, so to make rx480 viable, they must make it at least same speed as 1070 with a much lower price for it to be worth.

        Opposite is true too, so when someone comes from redish country to greenish, do not ask why everybody buy small cars

        WTF Czech Rep. WTF.
        From now on 1 death/game load = 20 push ups.

        Last month I was deciding - wait for R9 480 or go with GTX 970. Impatience and AMD openGL performance made me choose.

            I'm just targeting good and comfortable gaming at 1440p res, because 4k is not there yet with good support from all sides - games, computers and monitors. But 2k (1440p) is here and and 1080p is very old not good enough, so all in all, gaming is entertainment, and i see no fun in buying bad pc and gaming 720p @ 15 fps, had too much of that, no more - geforce 1070 seems like a good card from first benchmarks for [email protected] gaming, and it is not too costly(about 550 euros at my place), so i think thats the card to beat. Therefore amd really needs some miracle to beat nvidia either by performance(which is not happening in any age soon) or by having almost the same performance and having much lower prices. I know i want too much, but rx480 must have at least 95% power of 1070, and must cost no more than 400 euros for me to consider it an option.

              and if you test fairly on both sides means the FLOSS driver nvidia hardware lose.
              so in fact there is no "try so hard" it is just a fact that nvidia is not competitive if you compare apples with apples and bananas with bananas.
              Not a fair comparison - amd foss drivers are still alive and in development, and geforce foss drivers doesnt even support half the cards, third world crap... And this foss/closed source comparison in childish on its own - driver is a driver, just compare using the best one and thats it. You just cant take foss seriously - its like you giving unofficial support for some alien technology - its not their fault you suck at it.

                I have a 2k monitor that I power with a Nvidia GTX 660. It easily plays games at native resolution at 60 FPS with medium to high settings. The RX480 should play pretty much ANY game maxed out at 2k, and decently at 4k. Your point is invalid.

                  And as I wrote, comparing bananas with bananas means official driver VS official driver.

                  All you do want is bench all with mesa so that, once since several years, AMD wins.

                  BTW, following your idea : pursue all testers who dare comparing Windows VS Linux, Oracle VS MariaDB etc.

                  Last word : AMDGPU is developped by AMD itself... so where is the cheat here?

                    Not everyone has a monitor with 1440 resolution. So there is FOR YOU, but not for everyone, no point in buying anything slower than 1070.

                    ... thats the card to beat.
                    For you!

                    Therefore amd really needs some miracle to beat nvidia either by performance(which is not happening in any age soon) or by having almost the same performance and having much lower prices.

                    There is rumor RX 480 will be no more than 250 euros without miracle.

                      The RX 480 isn't meant to compete against the 1070, it is made for a different audience. Vega will will have to compete with the GTX 1070/1080.
