So, I found this listing on my country's IT retail store website. I even called the company to confirm about this and they said these cards are legitimate and will arrive by end of July. I'll pre-order some and see if they are any good. BTW price is around 390 USD.

Its almost like AMD & partners are taking advantage of you.

Remind me how this makes sense anymore? Why would a person not just buy these for $300 on ebay all day long if they wanted an RX 470 so bad?

You do mention some really nice points there. Actually, it's the cheapest card available in my country right now, but I guess till mid of July, there will be a replenishment of new stocks. I just pre-ordered two of these to test it out and see how they stand out in comparison with normal cards. BTW, Thanks a ton for your opinion. Smiley

Exactly, once these finally start shipping, the aftermarket will be flooding with $150 470's, 480's, 570's and 580's. You'd have to be an idiot to buy this card.

Sapphire has 4 different cards listed on their website in this line - matrix of "4GB" vs "8GB" and "Samsung RAM" vs "non-Samsung RAM".

 2 of them are listed on Newegg as "out of stock" but I suspect they haven't actually HAD any in stock yet.


 The crash will probably see a ton of "cheap used" cards show up - but I don't see the crash happening for several months yet, unless ETH and ZEC both have a price crash well under $100 before that.

The hashrate boost is not worth it for 0 resale value and no use outside of crypto mining. Id agree with post above and just get 1070s or wait for Vega. Good luck starting to mine now tho as difficulty levels are going through the roof.

 Try FINDING a Nano or any Fury card for that matter - and the GTX 1070 availability is now matching RX 470/480/570/580 levels with price gouging having sent the price into 1080ti territory WHEN you can find one.
 Vega is an unknown at this point - they might be good for mining they might not.


 The "mining specific" cards should work as a second card in a Crossfire/SLI type setup, so there will be *SOME* resale value. Not a lot of one though unless another cryptocoin boom happens a couple-three years down the pike....
