    Anyone around who bought an AMD 470/480 series card?

    Hi,
    I`m just curious how the new AMD 470/480 series would perform with rF2? Any experiences so far?

    I initially thought about getting the 480 series...just to see how it'd compare with my current card.
    Prices have since gone 'stupidly' crazy on what was originally billed as a (179_4GB / $229_8GB) card.
    I'd still like to see how it'd run rF2 and all the other simracing titles but I won't pay an idiot's rate..

    Well, i dont know how the prices in the us are, but in germany the e.g. Radeon RX 480 Black would be around 290 EUR, while the GTX1070 are in the 420 EUR range...

    Unfortunately seems difficult to find benchmarks made with relevant racing titles.
    I've only found Tom's hardware that publish benchmarks made with Project CARS:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...al,4679-4.html
    RX480 is not even on par with GTX 1060 and offers only half of the fps compared to a GTX1070.

    While I was a huge customer of AMD products in the last 20+ years, enough is enough!
    I give up on them and now I have a i5-6600k + GTX1070 for my triple screen setup.

    Thanks for the headup, but tbh, pcars was optimized for Nvidia, isn`t it? While i`m using a GTX980 in my race rig, my R9270X (office pc) became faulty. Now i`m thinking about to upgrade the race rig and using the GTX980 for my office pc. Or go for a cheaper gfx card for the opc and keep the GTX980 in the race rig...

    I have one and it works fine in 1080P. For higher resolution you have to pay attention to your CPU too.

    I'm using it with a custom resolution of 3800x1600 (you have to modify a key with regedit and use the VSR).

    Well, i just got my hands on a RX470 (4gb) and did some tests. I must say, this card isnīt very good performing. Tbh, its cheap too. Though...if you buy cheap, you buy twice.

    With human driver and just 10 ai, it partially drops down below 60 fps (1080p): Sao Paulo + rMmegane, 10 AI, all settings high and med, fps capped to 60, vsync video. Its heavily stuttering and flickering. Sure, it`s never ever comparable, but I`m really happy, that i bought the GTX1070.

    Thats also the conclusion from my monthly german HW bibel PCGamesHW.
    The fastest RX 480 the Strix OC is rated down to 7ths position behind 6 much faster GTX 1060 cards.
    And is even then much noisier than the 1060s.
    The comparasment review can be seen in the latest published from 09-2016.

    I don't understand AMD's way of thinking, since their take-over of ATI.
    They're always coming out with these products which are supposedly 'killer' challenges to their competition...but are not.
    They've got some of the most intimidating names set aside for their CPUs.....sledgehammer, Piledriver, Bulldozer, etc...
    Ever so often I get the inkling to try their graphics products...then I remember my last experience with stutter, short driver support etc....and that thought 'jumps' right back out of my head.
    Great products on paper and for FPS games...too much 'hit-or-miss' for most racing sims this far into it.

    I was looking at the RX470 so thanks for the info, may reconsider now. How many monitors are you using?

    Edit: Doh never mind seen your spec...
