    I took the mick out of this a lot... but when I think about it and look at (and hear) my 290X... I'm actually tempted.

    Page 1:
    "AMD is doing just that in the run-up to Vega, and the first two GPUs to get the numerical model makeover are the RX 580 and RX 470 GPUs" should be RX 480 and RX 470 GPUs
    Page 2:
    "Outputs are standard for a modern GPU, encompassing a trio of DisplayPort, single HDMI and dual-link DVI." Outputs are 2 DisplayPort, 2 HDMI and a Dual-Link DVI

    Feels like I've been waiting forever for Vega but it often feels like that with AMD and how news is put out so early.

    Should be some cracking deals on 480s

    I picked up a 4gb 480 for £150 over the weekend, to replace a 7870 that's capacitors died in the week.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    480 is a far better deal than that, the performance improvements are a little better than expected. But I'm just disappointed that they couldn't offer any upgrades in the actual hardware. A few extra processors or something, just to make it feel updated. At least in the past when AMD rebranded they'd generally have one new card at the top end and push the others down by one level.

    Yes it appears to have a slight bump in performance but needs an extra 35W over the 480, I too thought they might have done something with the hardware.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    Yeah I'd just get a 480 8GB instead for around the £180 mark. Silly money for an 8GB 580.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    Can't help but feel like this is the card the 480 should have been. Perhaps excluding the power use figure...

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    The pricing of the 570 is around or higher than the 480,there's no compelling argument for not just getting a 480 if going AMD.

    Although AMD have closed the gap on NVidia, the lower power draw and heat output of the 1060 makes the decision between 1060 vs 480 less clear cut.
    I don't have a desire for my study / gaming room to reach the temperatures of hell and energy isn't getting any cheaper.

    The lack of advancement by AMD has contributed to stagnation in the both CPU and GPU markets but the difficulty in going to ever smaller die sizes was always going to slow progress (Intel have suffered with this).

    That being said I'm glad we're past the nearly yearly updates required in the 90s and early 2000s. I'm still using a 2500k at stock with a 670 and 16Gb and it still copes with what I chuck at it.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition

    For me what's nice to see is that:

    1 they have a decent card out to review first (oc and decent cooling), and

    2 the 480 seems to have got better and better compared to the 1060.

    Very tempted by a 480 now...
