    Another paper launch!
    Still waiting to see 480 non ref model in the flesh.
    $179 way to close to 480 msrp.
    Gpu's are turning me into Victor Meldrew!

    Don't think this was a launch, more of a "leak". You wouldn't accuse Apple of launching the iPhone 7 when some poor quality chinese video appears showing the purported external casing

    Ok more of an addendum to the paper launch.
    Still no hard dates facts & figures on how they run/perform & when you can buy them.

    That silver blower looks really good, too bad it's probably not that good at cooling.

    Good to hear that 4GB will be an option. Hopefully won't add too much to the price (and won't be slower memory).

    I agree the finish looks pretty good for an inexpensive cooler design.

    It'll probably have the same thermal performance as the cooler on the RX 480, which isn't great. The RX 470 at stock speeds and voltages should be rather less demanding and so shouldn't have problems with throttling, but the fan will still be noisy under load. On the flip side, the externally-exhausting blower design is likely to be better for the thermal performance in the average chassis.

    I'm waiting for my back order for a reference design RX 480, and the limited performance of the cooler doesn't bother me, as I'm planning on fitting an aftermarket water cooler in the medium term.

    Hats off to Sapphire. They are the only OEM that supports AMD chips with a range of AMD cards. The other OEMs are all in the pockets of Nvidia.

    Asus, gigabyte and powercolour announced AIB 480's before sapphire did though

    These leaks, announcements and previews in the tech industry are starting to follow the same pattern as film releases where you get to see an out of order sequence of clips that are an amalgam of all the best bits. When you get to see the actual end result more often than not its ... Meh!
