    Not bad. I will opt in for this compared to the R13000 price tag of the 1080. Can still crossfire for half the price lol.

    Will wait for benchmarks and comparisons to the 1080 first.

    As much as I want AMD to succeed, their press conference was somewhat lacking. Showing Ashes of the Singularity getting 60+ fps on a crossfire setup is nice, but at what resolution? What will a single card get? Personally that is what should have been said instead of what was being said. You can't show the world a new $199 card and say it's amazing then on it's first public display have it running in CrossFire to compete with your direct competitor. When your competitor is almost meeting your performance on a single card.

    I am rooting for AMD All the way, but their marketing somewhat sucked. I really hope the RX480 can perform well at 1080p as a single card because then it could dominate the market AMD is targeting.

    Well IDK, there is a huge difference between R4000 and R14000. Even if one GPU gives half the performance of a 1080 and a crossfire system gives the same performance as a 1080, two cards will still be cheaper. But still can't expect a R4000 card to beat a R14000 card, that is unfair.

    Keen to see what the SA pricing will be and also if the bring out the RX490.
