Can't wait to see the prices for the 1060 when it gets here.  Leaked performance figures are pretty hot.

Hey mate, i went two rx 480 black oc edition running in Xfire. For the money even 1 card offers great performance at 1080p. i want to drive 3440 x 1440 monitor plus in crossfire on dx12 games it out performs the $1279 gtx1080. I got mine for $798.

I like what amd have done with the 480. Now im hoping nvidia actually put out a real value for dollar card.

New drivers draw excess power through 6 pin now, games are smooth as butter. Even one of these cards do a super job for there price. Be interesting to see how the 1060 stacks up. 

Interesting Phil, I wonder how long they will be shipping 4GB card with locked 8GB on board. Personally I would rather pay the extra and retain my warranty. It is rumored it is only to get stocks up so it could be a lotto if you get a 4GB or 8GB variant.

Don't understand the need to put your warranty at risk. Just flash the bios, if it works you have 8gb, if it doesn't you have 4gb... :)

I'd be checking there was 8GB there first before I flashed which would ruin the warranty. I guess you don't have to but that's just me.

Problem is the only way to check is to pull it apart which will definitely void the warranty. Never used ATIFlash but I would assume it comes with a backflash feature to restore the original bios. Will stand corrected though.
