So many people dismissing this as nothing, and so many acting like it's doomsday..
For any of the guests that are completely confused. - Don't buy the reference if you want more performance than stock gives, even though you'll still probably be perfectly fine OC'ing. The reference cooler is like usual from AMD, pretty poor. Rather wait a bit for the AIB versions, they'll give far better cooling and won't have any of these "issues".
If you already have one don't panic, even though we have a lot of "concerned" websites churning out articles every hour, there really isn't anything to worry about if you don't act like a fool with a reference card that has a single 6 pin. I've done some (admittedly) irresponsible things with custom bios, etc., and never fried my board yet... touch wood. AMD are also releasing a software update next week, just under-volt it yourself if you're concerned right now.
I've also seen a lot of people on social media, Youtube, etc., recommending the 970 instead.. For goodness sake whatever you do, don't do that.. If you don't want AMD then rather wait for the 1060, the 970 is going to be left in the dust before long, especially when most tripple-A's are moving to DX12 and Vulkan.
The 970's future competition is going to be the 380X..
Total war just got patched to DX12:
