    Would anyone care to speculate what settings i would be able to obtain with a AMD rx480, running triples @5040 x 1050 on a i5 4690k? On my old 7970Ghz I sadly had to have most settings pretty low which made the whole experience rather underwhelming. I really don't want to be disappointed again so I guess I would shell out for a 1070 if I have to.

    Look for videos of people running triples with a 970 or 980 should give you an idea since the 480 is around the performance of these cards

    I've always trusted TomsHardware for hardware ratings. Here is his july video card hierarchy. http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/b...-2016-hierarchy-chart-by-toms-hardware.81325/.
    The 480 is too new to be on it but I think it's safe to say that it will be one of the higher ranked AMD cards. The rule at Tom's has been unless you are upgrading at least three levels, it's probably not worth spending the money to do the upgrade.All that being said, I run triples on an R9 380 and get around 90FPS with most settings set at one notch down from highest/best. I run an i7 4770 but I'm not convinced that makes all that much difference. My R9 380 is the "short" card that has 2gb of memory instead of the 4gb full length card.

    It will be about the same as a GTX 970. Which is to say, in rF2 you will want to make some compromises in AA or other settings, like shadows. What I noted reading/watching various benchmarks is that the new generation AMD cards can reach the peaks of the comparable nVidia cards, but the AMD lows are lower, so you may find the occasional stutter if you don't make the compromises.

    How has the new card worked out for you?

    I replaced my R9 380 with a Sapphire RX 480OC with 8GB. I have an I7 4770 with 24GB of memory. I can run everything at max with 22 cars and get a steady 63-65fps with triples. For reference, F1 2016 from Codemasters runs at 30fps with everything maxed out, but it's prettier than RF2.
