    I think Vega will be cheaper. It probably will have to be for AMD to convince enough people to swap given how relatively late to the party it will be. I have a habit of being unclear sometimes when my mind races ahead of my typing

    Ah fair enough. Yeah and given Nvidia should have sorted out 1070/1080 supply by then its price might have settled down to RRP too (at the moment it seems like the supposedly cheaper aftermarket cards are selling for more than the FE ones).

    Some specs leaked:

    http://videocardz.com/61753/nvidia-g...er-than-rx-480

    According to Nvidia's own slides around 15% faster than an RX480. Apparently according to the comments it is $299 - if that is the case it will be closer to £270 here then!!

    There's a big old gap to slot into - 480 is £200, 1070 is £400. All nVidia have to do is release before Vega and keep the 1070 priced higher than originally suggested.

    Thats the thing - since it seems the RX480 has a decent amount of untapped potential,I suspect the GTX1060 and aftermarket RX480 cards might be close. That 15% Nvidia touts is probably another best case scenario.

    I can't decide whether I wish AMD would release better reference cards, or that they let partners launch custom cards on the same day as the reference card launch (with maybe a slightly higher MSRP to give the reference card a chance to sweep up the budget-concious sales)...

    EDIT: iirc AMD reckoned the RX 480 would be addressing the market right up to $299 (with "beast mode" cards using massively overspecced power delivery). If so, I imagine the contest will be between custom RX 480s and reference GTX 1060s at the $300 mark, with custom 1060s filling the gap between there and the 1070.

    Presumably there's also a 1060ti waiting in the wings as well from discarded 1070/80 parts.. Looks like £200-£400 will be the main battle-ground for this gen of products.

    Unless the GTX1060 is using a salvaged GP104??

    Also:

    Sorry I have no pound symbol as am in AMD Munich HQ office, dodgy keyboards here.

    Ref is 219-239GBP depending on brand, custom I can see from 239-279GBP.


    Also when all 980/970 and 390/390X is gone then even at 250-300 480 will sell as it won't have competition apart from upcoming 1060 which will no doubt be priced similar or a little higher than 480.
    Second Edit!!

    He was bang on about his hints about the RX480 too,unless OFC Nvidia decide to be generous.

    That also hints the GTX1060 is probably a GP104 salvage - otherwise we would also see a GTX1050,etc too.
