A single 8 pin can pull the 250w including bus connect. Relying on the PCIE slot itself for more than 54w is dangerous. This is where we get the 225W 6pin PCIE spec.
I highly doubt AMD uses teoretic figures, the typical 6 pin spec is 75W and that is what AMD takes in account.
That means the 480 should not exceed 150W, not even under unrealistic stress scenarios.
If the 480 would reach close to 150w under gaming AMD would have used another 6 pin.

Now if AIB partners apply a 20-30% OC you could expect custom 480s with two 6pin or one 8 pin but this remains to be seen.

* of course it makes no sense to buy a $200 "VR" GPU and then a $600-800 Oculus/Vive, but hey*

What would make sense? A $699 1080? How much longer is your shift?

Has it ever been said why Polaris 10 is more powerful than Polaris 11 while having a lower number?

that stupid logic again.

what is the most expensive thing you own ? does everything else you own also cost same ? because if you can afford that expensive thing than everything else should be similarly priced right ?

use some logic instead of green glasses.


200 vr gpu + 600 hmd costs less than 500 vr gpu + 600 hmd. is that really hard to understand ? not everyone buys 1080 even on green team lol.

If a $200 card will let people use VR, why not? I saw VR set for $399 or something in the news section.


Besides, AMD had 2 480s when they presented this card for VR, iirc.

VR is so relatively new why go out of your way in setting up the most expensive from the start? I think this makes a lot sense.

But, then again, you got to make that sale. It is ok to push the 1070 and the 1080 hard to ocn members BUT, don't do it at the expense of the competition.

The numbering and name is based on stars magnitudes. Lower numbers means a brighter star. So Polaris 10 is brighter than Polaris 11 = faster.

Well... I know its a tad risky at this point but I picked up some AMD stock in lieu of the Polaris release. Hopefully with Polaris and Zen coming in 2017 I'll have a long hold strategy and that'll pay off in a year or so... or it'll tank...1 or the other...

That's what I thought but cannot find any source that would use the numbers 10 and 11 in relation to these stars. Or I just fail at google wink.gif
