    It is strongly advised to take anything coming from videocardz.com (and 3DMark, for that matter) with more than a grain of salt, but this graph does seem plausible, considering what we know atm.

    67DF:C7 CF = RX 480 Crossfire
    67DF:C7 = Single RX 480
    67DF:C4 = Single RX 470 (or R 480?)

    The X in the RX series is 10, since it would be lame to call everything a R10 480, R being Radeon, X being 10 and 4xx being the series of card, 460/470/480 and possibly a 580 series.

    I am genuinely excited for the new AMD Cards, the last one I had was ATI 9600XT

    If this is correct then the 480 competes quite favourably with the GTX 980. & since this is the reference card, I'm hoping we'll have non-reference cards that can reach or surpass the GTX 980Ti. But seeing this, I wonder if AMD will have anything to go against a 1080Ti, which I suspect we'll be seeing sooner or later.

    Like @Dark Bane I didn't notice that either, but it does make sense now
    I'm still rolling with a R9 270X and I guess I'm a bit of an AMD fanboi when we get to the GPU side (Intel on CPU) so I share your enthusiasm for the new line. Can't wait for October to see the high-end cards but I'm starting to think that the RX 480 may just fit neatly into my budget and give a decent performance upgrade.

    These are just rumours, but if it is correct than we can see this AMD card matching the 980 for about R4500 - R5500 (based on the current price of the R9 380X which had ~ the same MSRP at release). I think it's a bit of a stretch for the RX 480 to take on the 980Ti even when overclocked, but you never know. When anounced, the RX 480X will probably fit into that tier.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.

    This is sort of the 1st VR GPU Card generation.

    The Nvidia 1080 is Top Dog the High Performance, High Price (although cheaper than past cards)
    The Nvidia 1070 is Mid Range and Mid-Price.

    The AMD is Lower Range Low Price.

    @The Joker you right about AMD's 480 all these others people just AMD fan boys.

    AMD will probably release a 490 which will compete with the 1070 but I doubt will rival the 1080.
    AMD 480 though is a great price and make a great dual or triple card system, with VR needing to render 2 sources for each eye, you may see performance of Crossfire Systems increasing way beyond their current speeds. Rather than working together on one display they can work on separate displays.

    AMD focused on what they could do and that was undercut NVidia's price not the performance. This generation of cards mean cheaper better graphics for all.
