We have added our own GTX Titan X, GTX 980 OC, R9 390 OC & R9 Nano results for comparison. Our tests were conducted by our own Keith May with our newly acquired Intel i7 6800K six core Broadwell-E CPU.

The RX 480 4GB & RX 480 8GB were benchmarked with an Intel Core i7 4960X six core Ivy Bridge-E CPU by the source. Our slightly better CPU & overclocked graphics cards skew the results marginally in favor of our graphics card lineup vs the RX 480. Regardless of this handicap, the RX 480 managed to edge out our overclocked GTX 980 & R9 390 samples in addition to our R9 Nano sample.
So, they used an Ivy Bridge-E cpu for the Polaris cards but a i7-6800k for the others......lol......????

AMD hasn't stated any such thing.

Not sure if you read what you quoted or not but the tests were not done by the same people. The RX480 was test by "The Source" and the results were added with their own test results of other cards into a chart.

I read it alright, don't worry about that. PCTuning (in another thread) are the ones who supposedly have a card "on the way and didn't sign a nda", which Forceman was asking about that stoker quoted. Just simple confusion, that's all. wink.gif

From my source who is from a big retailer with stockpile of Rx480 at the early June, the 1400MHz result is legit when the card is well fed with power and able to maintain its maximum clock.

Here is his story. AMD's initial plan is 1080 MHz clock, hence that tiny board with 6 pin. That plan got wreck with 2100 MHz 1080, and AMD has been tinkering with the release clock until set on 1266MHz, the best they can afford on the ref board. The custom board with better power circuit actually can pull off higher clock and performance.

Why would a retailer know that? I don't see AMD explaining their internal discussions/testing to random store/websites.

He is the tech guy who is busy with flashing off those 1080MHz BIOS so that's his theory biggrin.gif

Wait, so retailers are opening boxes, flashing BIOSes, and then repackaging them? Color me skeptical.

Edit: Plus, the WCCF rumor (so take that for what you will) is that 1080 is the base clock and 1266 is the boost clock, so there'd be no flashing involved.

Wait, so you do think that your brand new card came to you untouched from the factory???

Sounds plausible. This would explain the lower scores with the first leaked benchmarks.
