I just like to know if there will be a CAD 2D drawing performance gain moving up the ladder from the 370 to the 380 or better yet RX 470. One of the most task is zooming in and out of the 2d and 3d space when doing detail works. My main interest is performance and product obsolescence in next 2 years.
Hi Matt. Just like to know about RX460 4GDR5. The reason is I had previously installed R7 260X which on the benchmarks autocad 2D showed good 2D performance HD7790. Just can't find it anymore on Tom's Workstation graphics comparison.
I like to to know if the RX 460 4GDR will be good or wait for RX470 4GDR D revision. Power consumption since I don't want to change my Antec TPC Gold 550W psu. I think RX460 cu is more close the 260X than the 260 and 360
Looking at the hardware you have mentioned, the RX 470 would perk up performance while reducing power consumption
Keep in mind that video cards make at 14nm are much more efficient than the older 28nm ones so there are lots of gains with power consumption
The Polaris 10 GPU is very well suited to 1920x1080 gaming.
VRAM is more important for CAD and 3D Studio. The 8GB version of the RX 470 is desireable.
Found the link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-280x-r9-270x-r7-260x,3635-15.html . Wnat to know if the 260x 2D performance is similar with RX 460 & 470. IRONCAD, SolidWorks, Solid Edge are 3D environments that generate associative 2D drawings. Sometimes 2D drawing takes longe generate on detailed work.
There is a AU$20 price drop on the Sapphire RX470 OC with a reference cooler, I will grab it. I don't know why it is on EOL though, I am not gaming so I think that will be fine
