    This could stir things up a bit, especially seeing as there is no 960Ti as of yet, could well be something decent to own in the mid range sector. Waiting on reviews of course from HEXUS.

    haha no it won't

    960 is faster and costs less

    I presume you meant 950 costs less? The 960 is many things, but the 380 beats it on performance and price, so a bargain it is not. You can still get an 285 for £130 which beats it for performance and thrashes it on price.

    Would have been nice to have seen this released as a further cut down Tonga, I presume AMD had a warehouse full of old chips somewhere to use up.

    Pitcairn is a surprisingly excellent chip. Balance of performance/power is probably the best AMD have ever produced.

    Lack of Freesync support seems a blow though. The Tonga increased tessellation is handy for those Hairworks moments too

    Yes - hard to make the case for feature adoption when you sell 'new' cards that can't support it. Hairworks is OK on Pitcairn as long as you keep it under control.
