    Polaris Introduction at Computex 2016

    AMD talking about the RX480 (link below). I figured they wouldn't be matching 1080 performance and would be focusing on their pricing versus the competition. $199 U.S. for a RX480. You gotta love the comment they got from Marty Stratton (ID software - Doom developer):

    "You are not going to need a $700 video card to enjoy Doom at fantastic frame rates". Then back to AMD for benchmarks of two 480's (<$500) compared to a $700 1080.

    I'm no fan boy of either company. I've had both, no issues. Critical for pricing is competition so I hope both Nvidia and AMD do well. Just nice to see more than a number of us consumers take a shot at that $700 U.S. "Founders Edition REFERENCE" card pricing.

    AMD have always been more reasonable with their pricing. With better implementation of Dx12 it should be a real killer. It's pity that game developers are so one sided when it comes to making games, some work better on ATI/AMD, some better with Nvidia. You practically have to get one of each to be able to run every game with same performance.
