Dunno, maybe huge demand and going to run out of stocks way before the next batch arrives?
True, been watching it rise the whole day. Waiting on custom AIBs after the disappointing reviews so it doesn't really affect me but still. Strange choice to raise the price.
Does it? Didn't know 1080 is 3.5x faster than 480, is it?
Gibbo, can you give us a rough breakdown of total sales at the end of the day? im interested to know how many 8GB and 4GB versions were sold, not to bothered about which manufacturer sold xx amount, just total amounts of 4GB and 8GB
No its called we are selling 4gb version by the truck load we better make some more money !
Pay me £10 more
Price gauge at its finest. Shop around.
I want xxx 8gb black for no more than £220 otherwise they can stuff it
Has nothing to do with £ exchange rates... the 8gb versions didnt change in price just the 4gb.
Actually the MSI 8gb is lower than the advertised price.. wtf is this site doing, dynamic pricing? changing it as they want lol.
Yep, quite snide thing to do.
I guess it has something to do with the fact that it's cheaper and might be able to be flashed to 8gb (though unlikely I think)
Looking at some of the reviews, the 480 is crap. New node shrink but no big gains from AMD as of yet.
Does anyone know when the RX 470 is due, I thought it was meant to be out today.
I expect the 4gb version is flying off the shelves so guess they couldn't help themselves.
Just don't buy and they will reduce it again... Boycott.
In some of the reviews it is barely matching a GTX970 and it others it is closer to a GTX980/R9 390X,ie,ones like the TPU and KitGuru ones.
This is a pretty scummy thing to do - the card is clearly listed as £179.99 then when you click through to the site the actual price is £188.99!
Launch day price gouging has gotten so bad these past few generations.
Bit of a **** move nonetheless. Just makes us who saw the original price feel like mugs.
Most likely pcper is misunderstanding and were simply given a 8GB flashed to 4 as a review sample, so it would have higher clocks.
No it doesn't, unless you have somewhere to get 1080s for 450GBP.
Two of these will outperform a 1080 by a tiny margin, at 440GBP it's the obvious choice for the price-conscious. At least that's what I am seeing in the benchmarks released today. And it's more like 60% faster.
The only argument I see evident now is that a 980 ti which costs around the same is the better option because it's s single gpu for similar results. Still better performance from the 480CF.
Yeah it's not the game changer it was sold as.
Makes you worry about Vegas power usage and thermals too.
Tom Logan shows the software, explains the issue rather well particularly how the powerdraw ramps up like crazy with overclocking and that the cooling/heatsink is really holding back the card.
Clearly and as to be expected the Nvidia lovers (here not Tom) will post and highlight anything that shows the card to be in a bad light. Likewise its not right to just ignore issues or limitations of the reference card.
It is just a shame that really their isnt more people here using common sense and just want to fairly determine the situation.
Mid july i think.
