[PCTuning]Radeon RX 480 on the way to the office! (And we signed no NDA) - Page 11

They were not at that time. Who knows about now. I've checked the comments on other RX articles there but there is nothing in there either, of course people are curious about the review.

News: AMD is debating about releasing a changed end of NDA this friday.
PCTs nonNDA cards got stuck on border customs but should arrive in a couple of days now, problem is as a result they are also getting another card from AMD directly which is covered by NDA and no none from PCT can release anything until the end of NDA.

Cards are getting to shops and it's not going to be possible to keep the stuff secret under NDA so AMD might release the NDA a few days earlier because people are gonna start leaking stuff anyway.

Performance is around 390x and beats 980 slightly. There is no crazy rumor like overclocking. The normal 10-14% OC as always.
Price for 8GB is expected as leaked before, almost 300 EUR with VAT and a nice shop profit, personally from knowing the shop it should be about 37 EUR cheaper than that. So say prices may hover around 275 EUR incl. tax and shop profit.

Why the hell did they accept a sample from AMD directly and signed the NDA is beyond me, I don't know, they are stupid and could have had a review sooner.

Until you stumble upon a game with no Crossfire support, or you have to wait for 1-2-3 months before Crossfire is ready, or crappy scaling. Suddenly it isnt so great.
Relying on Crossfire to beat a single card from the competition is stupid at best. It can work great sometimes where it beats GTX 1080 a tiny but, mediocre at other times where it will perform a lot less than GTX 1080, or just horrible where it will be like half the performance

That they pick AoTS to market the card isnt a coincidence either because thats one game where AMD does better. We will see how it will turn out in other games..

AMD needs a few developers to commit to directx12 crossfire for their games. Also AMD needs to properly support dx11 crossfire for those cards as well. Those cards are supposed to fare better in dx11 envrionment anyway (new command something something) So if they could provide %15 better crossfire in dx11 it would be appealing more. (over similar price 390/x)

If also AMD could openly support more than 2 cards in dx12 against nvidia's max 2 cards, their image will improve. Gimmick is gimmick.

An AMD hardware launch without OBR teasing and trolling is not a real AMD product launch lachen.gif

come on, even I believe in ~20% OC tongue.gif

although probably not on reference cards

Post such as that will be forbidden in an nVidia thread.

I just translate what they wrote there tongue.gif
Point being forget about 1070 dream like performance in OC for half the 1070 price.

I don't think they should bother with DX11 anymore, rather help devs to use Vulcan. I would rather see properly done Vulcan than DX12 because Vulcan can run on anything and as such console games could mostly be just copied from consoles which should support Vulcan IMHO, they may not but it would be the smart move, making the barrier between console and PC releases even smaller than it is now. Plus console games are often optimized for multi-threading performance on both CPU and GPU and not relying on a single thread performance of Intel and Nvidia. Possibly even threatening Microsoft when it comes to gaming as Vulcan can run on Linux and Linux recompiled games with Vulcan should run no problem only thing needed to change is multithreading library and some middleware. It would be awesome if Vulcan and properly programmed games and apps would remove the barrier and instead made a bridge between the various platforms.

Ignoring the fact that that quote doesn't really compute ('around 390X performance and a bit above 980'?), what they are saying here is still all rather plausible for the 8GB reference 6-pin power 480s.

"10-14%" overclock on the 1266 boost clock would get you between 1392-1443Mhz overclock, which is in line with the 1400Mhz overclock range purported for the reference cards. It's only the 'beast' AIB 480s that are supposed to me capable of 1500+ overclocks and you would definitely need more than one six-pin power connector for that.

You could watch all the Hobbit & LOTR extended edition movies each, ten times in a row before seeing any new info in this RX 480 hype thread. tongue.gif
