    Graphic Cards Which GTX 1080 card from US?

    Just do note that EVGA aren't the best when it comes to card quality (in terms of noise/cooling etc). They are known for the superb customer support.

    Seems like the game is a great one as per reviews and folks playing it on the early access. Last minute pre order put in. Hype restored! :)

    Graphic Cards Nvidia GTX 1060 landing july 7

    If you are looking at the Time Spy benchmark from futuremark as the Async compute decider, it has already been criticized as not being a proper async performance indicator as per controversial posts going around. The 480 has higher performance in proper DirectX 12 games where Async compute is...

    So the verdict is the card is a better buy when compared to the 480 for current gen directX 11 games. Upcoming DirectX 12 games may be a different story altogether as the AMD has the advantage of being more future proof with its better Async compute performance.

    Graphic Cards RX480 priced at 30.4k in India

    Pretty sure, AMD did this to have more stock of the 4gbs at the $200 price point available at loaunch. Well its a good time to buy a 4gb right now and get a free upgrade to 8 gb version. Seems like 4 gb is sold out most places and I am sure the later 4gb cards are going to be strictly 4gb once...

    Apparently most of the 4gb 480 models have actually 8 gb RAM which are just locked by BIOS. Seems like this can be unlocked to 8gb by a BIOS flash. :)

    Graphic Cards RX480 priced at 30.4k in India

    To be honest, lets face it. A $200 card which offers near high end gaming would make sense for a lot of gamers in 3rd world countries where budgets are limited. I would think AMD is shooting itself in the foot allowing its distributors to sell this with such a high mark up and literally...

    Wonder if this is due to AMD regional pricing or the distributor pricing it this high?

    Graphic Cards AMD RX 480 Reviews

    well I would agree with you that yes on game benchmarks they aren't an improvement over last years 390. But you would have to say the same for the say 970 than when released as almost similar to the 780Ti in performance but with better thermals and lower power consumption. Over time, maxwell...

    Graphic Cards RX480 priced at 30.4k in India

    Sigh.. I am still not sure how they managed to achieve an almost double pricing in India for the 480.

    Graphic Cards RX480 priced at 30.4k in India

    Is the 30k pricing for the 8 gb models only? Does that mean the 4gb models are cheaper?
