Product may go in stock and out of stock.
This card lasted for 1 hr 20 minutes in stock today.

Use this website to set alerts and keep track.
If setting alerts ensure you enable both "Instock" and "Preorder" alerts since technically all of these are preorders.

"First, all the reference cards are 8 GB. This has been verified by insider forum members at Overclock.net.

So, if it is a 4 GB reference model from XFX, Sapphire or Powercolor, you stand to gain 4 more GB. Those cards are, hardware-wise, the 8 GB models, only flashed to allow 4 GB to be used.

Now, you might be saying, this makes no sense at all and is a waste of money for AMD. In response to that statement, I recommend you Google "economies of scale." It is much cheaper to set up tool and die for one card rather than two.

Flashing is totally reversible and non-damaging with the RX 480. Unlike other older models of cards in the past, the worst that will happen with the RX 480 is what we call a "soft brick."

Yes, if the flash for some reason fails, the card won't operate, but just use a secondary video device, reflash your RX 480 with its original BIOS, and it will be good as new!"

No sorry that was from my own account. I didn't really pay attention to that when I took the screen.

Yes the $10 promo credit should come 2 days+ after purchase.

There is no guarantee as these are later shipments of the reference card. But I am hoping and counting on the fact that manufacturers are more than likely not going to invest in creating a different reference design when they are focusing on AIB models.

And as others posted you can flash it and if it doesn't work you can always reflash it back to the original firmware.

Having said that IMO RX 480 @ $200 is a much better deal with gambling to get a 8GB flashable model.

RX 480 @ $240-250 for a 8GB version makes less sense especially with the $250 AIB GTX 1060 coming out in a few days.

But at $200 ($170) price point for a RX 480 4GB (even if not moddable) it is a great price point for performance. Also keep in mind the difference between 4GB and 8GB is very minor, but if I can get it for free I'll take it Smilie

damn missed it. If flashable, this would've been a heck of a deal with the 30 off 150

Lasted a whole 1 hr and 20 minutes total.

Use this to keep track as well as set alerts, the stock seems to go in and out.

30 off 150 is a general coupon sitewide and ymmv to those with the right card. not sure how this would create a deal as its not specific to this or any other item.

Because you can relatively use it on a high demand low stock product, and Amazon actually carries it at the MSRP versus the inflated price that some other retailers are employing.
Today so far, this Sapphire model lasted for 1 hr 20 mins. If you look at history on nowinstock you will see that most go out of stock within 5-16 minutes.

In addition, finding a 4GB reference card seems to be difficult now that everyone is chasing the free 8GB mod to save $40-50 from buying the 8GB model.

Granted this could be seen more of an in stock notice, but if a person has no other need to buy anything else from Amazon (like in my case) but did in fact want to pick up a RX 480... you can't really find it cheaper anywhere else.

BTW Amazon seems to be the one of the few retailers that are actually stocking the 4GB model, view the nowinstock history and you can see that they bring the 4GB model in stock multiple times throughout the week.

I thought that the 8GB versions have a faster memory bus though, or do the 4GB ones with a hidden 4GB already have this?
