Using just a single 6-pin power connector. Compare with the 280 series which varies from 2 6-pins to 2 8-pins!

3dmark score comparable with the Fury (18060 vs 18287)

    how well does it hash? power usage?

    I am interested in the Mh/s as well, but i don't think he has one, maybe just sharing the leaked score

    They introduced Polaris RX 480.
    card looks small and sleek for the $199 MSRP.
    They will also have dual for less than $500 (seems to be about the same as GTX 1080).
    However, no launch date was announced yet on the streaming broadcast, but , apparently, it is June 29.
    Another take home message was that multi-GPU support is not fully developed yet and, of course, the hashing speed is unknown.

    So the 480 will be the same speed as the 390 which was the same speed as the 290 ?

    So 30MH/s using 150Watts?

    At only $199 that's one crazy type of deal.

    Feel bad for everyone who bought Nanos for $600

    hopefully, but i don't think that this is 100% certain

    Why? If people bought nanos in December, they already paid for themselves and then some PLUS, they still could be resold now for $450 or so, maybe less later, though, once Polaris is on sale.

    Yes, been waiting for this. June 29th they say.

    For late comers, this could be the choice, if it performs well. Not only for eth, but also for future coins. Even tho the future, does usually uncertain. I remember Dec 2013, bought 280X to mine LTC, then somewhere in 2014, it's not profitable. But there's other coin, now eth. I still use my 280X for eth, until got RMA ed in April.

    Dunno will it effect the price on current cards. About to pull the trigger on recently price cut Nitro 390s, and a used 295x2. Nanos still priced at $500 where I am at. I think I'll wait for Polaris to perform.

    I was about to say that, bought mine in January, 100 of them, already ROI now. So still best investment i ever made :)

    About the 480, we'll see what it says about hashrate.. (And that is IF it comes out before ETH goes to POS)

    100 Nano's, say $50,000, giving 2600Mh/s.
    If 390's instead, would have ~170 giving 5100Mh/s.
    Almost double the hash-rate.
    Would have made double the amount of ETH for the same expenditure.

    Let us do that calculation again.

    100 nano's --> 44k Dollar give or take "i'm from europe, sot it was in EUR" (Bought in bulk, got a nice deal)

    Those 390's use almost 3x the power my nano's do. So given the electricity expenses, i wouldn't have been ROI by now.

    Double the hashrate? You kidding me? A nano easiliy does 30Mh as well, check my Nano rom thread over at bitcointalk for more numbers and info, i just let them run at 23Mh because they're SUPER economical and they generate almost no heat (55 degrees avarage at this moment)

    Also, i would need 2 PSU's to hook up 6x 390's AT LEAST.
    Or extra motherboards if i would split them up, so extra cpu's, mem etc..

    Trust me, i did the calculation several times before i bought. This was the best option. ;)

    is there a attestable source? Can´t believe at the moment because a Fury (non-X) makes

    ~7200+ GFLOPS with shader/TMUs/ROPs 3584/224/64, while I found
    ~5000+ GFLOPS with shader/TMUs/ROPs 2304/???/36 at the moment for the RX 480.

    Furthermore a Nano makes ~8200 GFLOPS with only a litte more TDP , is smaller and using 4096 bit HBM memory instead of GDDR5 at RX 480 (there aren´t only miners at this planet, also many gamers). So I don´t see the Nano as directly object of comparison to a RX 480. But of course, if the RX 480 is available, it should look bad for the prices of all older R9 X90(x) 275+ watt monsters.
