Probably all that worthless heat sink is rated for rolleyes.gif

I have seen larger reference heatsinks on CPUs.... biggrin.gif

lol yeah the heatsink doesn't look great in the 480.

That saying the low power of the reference card could actually be a blessing for AIBs to really push a lot more power out of their versions with OC and better cooling.

Inb4 linear voltage scaling spoils that too.

It's the only review where it looks decent.
The rest peg it at below 390/970 perf at 160W, with next to zero overclock headroom.

It overclocked to 1375MHz, not bad.

I wouldn't be surprised to see that there's more to give, maybe somewhere around 1400-1450MHz.

With it's stock performance it slightly edges out the GTX 970, but when it's overclocked to 1375MHz it surpasses a max overclocked GTX 970 and a stock/reference GTX 980.

I have the XFX 4gb 480 in hand. I'll have worse case scenario results over the next 24 hours

I have used nearly every CPU from Sandy Bridge on and Phenom II on. I have also used most GPU's from 2011 on, from low, mid and high. I've built 100's of rigs over the years. Most for fun and some for side work. If you have any questions and want an unbiased opinion, please feel free to PM me.

Hey! Do you want to have a bench off against my GTX 970? If so, what games and benchmarks do you have?
