    If there's something amazing in 480, I'm not seeing it. A bit faster than 970, a bit more power hungry and only a tad cheaper.
    All other things being equal, you'd expect at least less power draw when going from 28nm to 14 nm.

    It's not a bad card (Vulkan support looks strong, if we can judge based on a single benchmark), but I wonder how it will look next to the (apparently) pending 1060.

      I gave it a second look and i stand corrected. Vulkan performance is also promising. Windows tests are more positive.

        Congratulations for the PRICE/PERFORMANCE benchmarking. And to AMD that reading also MS WOS benchmarks at other sites has close the gap MS WOS - GNU/Linux for their drivers. I would like also to give thanks to the first OEM to make a CHEAP but GOOD ENOUGH Steam Machine with this GPU I am sure AMD would be glad to become the king in Steam Machines and almost monopoly in consoles, but I do not understand why the chromebook successful pace of cheap but good enough is not followed by GNU/Linux pre installed machines as boxes, consoles, and celeron or arm laptops ("books")

            But then there isn't much competition left.
            You need new glasses.

            Anyway those are good results and AMD is back to Linux market, congrats
            Now will 1060 beat it at perf/price... will be a good fight!

              Waiting for the compact ITX card to replace my R9 380.

                Looks like your server is getting hammered... I saw no charts at all, only text.

                  The vdpau info is missing for me.
                  I am interested as a RX 460 should have the same capability.
                  Want to upgrade my HTPC card to something HDR and 4K compatible.

                      Do you have JavaScript enabled? Charts are on another faster, server, should be no problem with them.
