hate to break it, this card won't exist, AMD has already stated that the 480 has the full Polaris 10 chip (also it is stated in these specs that the 480x has fewer shaders than the 480) and likely there will be no more 'X' cards from Polaris and beyond

AMD says a lot of things but then ends up changing their mind also no one really knows if the Polaris 10 chip is at it's full potential as well cause AMD could say that it is but really it isn't.

I agree with Engbuilder. There is litterally zero information on this card on the net. Meaning it probably isn't going to happen and AMD will focus on VEGA(Which they should).

Can't wait for this card to come out, just hope it isn't wildly overpriced in Canada like the 1080 and 1070 were.

I anticipate a lower price tag, but spot on otherwise
