    WCCF is hosting a huge poll right now

    http://wccftech.com/official-wccf-hardware-poll-2016/

    With over 6k votes so far, 37% of voters are picking up the RX 480, 17% are waiting for Vega and GP102, async importance is about split, 62% don't like dual GPU setups, 46% won't upgrade their CPU this year, 40% will upgrade to Zen, and 86% won't be purchasing this generation of VR tech split between those that are not interested in VR at all and those waiting out this generation.

    Go take the poll. The RX 480 results don't surprise me but the reaction to Zen does. Only 13% plan to upgrade in the Intel camp!

    On top of that only 20% have committed to upgrading to nVidia while 54% have committed to AMD. Only 8% have decided not to upgrade their GPU this year.

    Pretty interesting data, can't wait to see how it closes out. So far it looks like AMD is taking nVidia and Intel to the cleaners.

    that would be quite a change in the gpu and cpu market, lets hope the voters stand true to their commitment shown in the poll ;)

    Well I can understand the 480 but Zen? I'm not so sold. I mean I'm looking at the 480 myself but by the time I'm ready to upgrade I'm probably going to be holding off to see Vega and GP102. I don't want to upgrade again for awhile and it needs to be a worthwhile upgrade over my 780 Ti.

    I look forward to the launch of Zen, I hope it's a good launch but I wont bet anything on it.

    of course Zen! naturally, the proclaimed performance boosts have to actually come true, but if they do, its gonna be a sweet CPU gen from AMD, and about time at that as well :)

    Tbh, with the RX480 being around $200-250, when you upgrade you'll lose $50 or even $100 tops... For the performance increase over the 780ti, it's worth it if you ask me..

    You guys, HL3 confirmed!

    If I'm gonna upgrade my GPU this year, I'm gonna see what AMD has in €400ish range first and then decide.

    RX 480 doesn't have all that much of a benefit over the 780Ti, honestly. I'd probably repaste the 780Ti and overclock it if I had one than get a RX 480. A larger boost would be needed.

    Look at the VR response, lol. 85% either waiting or not interested at all.
