The non AIB 480 RX cards reportedly have about as much head room its sounds as the 1070 and 1080s do , so it will be interesting to the see the difference in spin from some sites around this. I'm sure some will tout the ref 480 as a bad overclocker - i wonder if they called pascal the same ?

i7 930 @ 4.75 -> i7 2700k @ 5.45 -> 3770k @ 5.2 -> 4820k @ 5.1 -> 5820k @ 5.3ghz

Reference factory overclock models typically mo more than 50-75 MHz

I'm not so sure about that. We know already from a couple of reports its not only thermally getting up there will small overclocks with that rather non special default cooler it has (reportedly) we also have seen a couple of reports of it getting close to 150 watts when oc and thats is Max TPU.

So we have more than one limiter at play here on the ref cards.

Really will have to wait and see. I can guarantee you they will be more effective than pascal AIBs however for improving overclocking which have been totally unaffective so far.

You can draw more than 150w BY FAR with a single 6pin. You just need to change the BIOS power limits or bypass the current sensing circuit on the board. (making it report 10-20w at most, no matter the power draw)

Before advanced power management this was a trivial task. Just up the volts and clocks. 225w is easily doable on a 150w speced board, given you can cool it.

HP-UX. I came, I saw, I was sad it would not run on my X86 box.

People at computer stores should educate themselves, that would help right away.

A story:

I helped a friend plan out a build, he bought all the parts I told him to except for the gpu. I told him to get an r9 270, iirc they were like $130ish at the time. He got a 750 ti for $150. I asked why, he said, the guy he knew at the store said nvidia was better and he should get the 750 ti instead. His thinking: well this guy sells pc components so he probably knows what he's talking about.

One strategy that I think would pay off is to have more of a presence. Go to frys, micro centers, best buys, ect., talk with employees, hold events, that sort of thing. Educate the masses on why they should buy and sell your product over another

Intel does that with the retail edge program

Yeah i figured that could be done, but stock bios is locked to 150watts or less from what i've seen even with power limit increased.

It will be interesting to see , in say a 2d game or light 3d , eg where mhz can climb and not draw a lot of TDP if the ref boards can do more than 1400mhz, that will tell us something.

I was able to run my chilled TXs at 1690mhz in ori and the blind forrest lol .. but yeah anything heavy in 3d back to 1633 mhz max.

i7 930 @ 4.75 -> i7 2700k @ 5.45 -> 3770k @ 5.2 -> 4820k @ 5.1 -> 5820k @ 5.3ghz
GTX580 SLI@1070 > 7970 lightning CFX@1400 > 780 TiC SLI@1505 > 980 Strix Tri SLI@1740 > Titan X SLI 1633/8380

I really hope this review is fake otherwise those power consumption numbers at 3:49 mean the performance per watt is TERRIBLE for the RX 480.

Calm down, it's furmark. Actual gaming power consumption is more like 110 watts.
