Looks great so far in terms of price of the card any reports on the actual ppd yet?

The 1070 looks like 150k more than a 980Ti, and the 1080 about 250k more than a 980Ti.

The non-linear QRB function that provides the bonus points, makes it difficult to extrapolate a single PPD figure. And as the hardware is getting farther away from the benchmark, (in performance terms), the range of PPD values just increases.

Basically both cards are significantly faster than a 980Ti or a TitanX, and use the same/less power.

And what about the amd rx 480 points per day? Is it similar to a 390x/r9 nano

So from what i can see this 480 is as good as a 980 but far less power draw than the 980. Ive seen 1 screen shot so far from another forum that the 480 is getting avg300k ppd i can remember the project it was on but my old 970 zotac was avg 300k ppd so i am somewhat confused im almost at the point of buying one just to see what happens but nvidia are releasing the 1060/ (1060ti possibly as well) no specs yet but nvidia have stated it will be between 970 and 980 levels which puts it where the 480 is. Will be interesting on the power draw front as its rumored that the basic 1060 will only draw 75w take this with a pinch of salt of course,
The think i think im finding the hardiest is that the 480 in terms of compute has 5.6~tflop performance but it seems for f@h the lack of optimizations for amd means its in the same bracket as a 980 which is around the 4.6t tflop mark that's like a whole tlop per second thrown out the window.

I understand what you're saying about compute performance - but it's not as simple as that.

AMD's architecture might require more operations to do the same amount of work.

If you take a look at the F@H stats page you'll see 2 FLOPs figures given. Native FLOPs and x86 FLOPs. Unfortunately FLOPs are not created equally and cannot be compared across different architectures.

TheDarkBGM, if you happen to go for the AMD RX 480, please share the results on our What PPD are you getting with GPUs - and if you have time, on the really nice overclocker.net GPU Projects PPD Database
