It doesn't even consistently beat the GTX 1060. Most of the time, yes, but not always.

 

It harkens back to the X850 cards. Aside from being much more appropriately named, they were extremely minor clockspeed bumps (20-40MHz), so added nothing of substance to the product stack. But they were much more widely available than top-of-the-line X800XT cards due to better yields, so for consumers it was a small win.

 

This though. This is basically a rebranding, with a slight bump in core voltage. It's the same thing NVIDIA did with the 8800 (G92) series going to 9800, and then GTS 250.

 

I own a 480 and I see absolutely no point in doing this.

It still makes more sense to recommend to a new buyer a 580 over a 480.  

not when 480's will be selling for pennies on the dollar.
