[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 102

I agree that Pascal is basically Maxwell on 16nm FF, and the power savings and high clocks are a result of the 1.5x node shrink, and so much to do with nVidia's miraculous engineering.

However, I disagree with the bold part. nVidia knows they're basically Apple of the GPU market now, and people will buy whatever crap is fed to them, so they're just doing what every business would do and milking every last drop out of that (blind) brand recognition. Hell they could've priced the 1080 $100 more and it would still sell out within minutes.
I support what he said in principle though, the speculation really has gotten out of hand, and expectations have been raised so high that the only outcome is sore disappointment then resentment towards AMD for "not delivering 980 Ti performance @ $200", which quite frankly if you used some common sense is indeed a ridiculous statement.

Even that early leak months ago only claimed P10 to be "on par with stock 980Ti at $300", not $200. I still think its possible we see special AIB cards that can do 1500-1600 MHz and at that speed get uncomfortably close to a stock 980Ti. OC to OC though, no chance, and I've said a million times that as long as the 480 soundly beats an OC 980 at $200 it will be a huge win for AMD. Anything more than that will just be gravy.

Apologize in advance for being petty, but I thought I'd get some of Oj010's choice quotes on record in case he decides to backpedal when the inevitable happens:

And the most ironic one of them all:

Actually I retract that, specifically because of the reason said to me I can say that there won't be any new GPUs until October.

Safe to say that if Oj010 isn't making all of this stuff up, then AMD went on a mole hunt and his contact would probably lose his/her job soon, assuming they haven't been fired already.

Yeah but he had a defunct site where he allegedly predicted BD would be a fail! What a prophet! lachen.gif

I think we can all agree at this point that Ojo's "inside info" was nothing if not an epic troll! I mean, we are all still talking about it two months later!

Troll Level = Expert

Congrats Ojo (though i did call him out on his BS at the time)!

I speculated the score using previous RX 480 Firestrike Extreme stock clock scores.

You trust a benchmark that depicts a Titan X being 10% slower than a 980 Ti? rolleyes.gif

That is a mighty fine title for product that hasn't even been released and with no verifiable performance figures. wheee.gif


AMD is using Stars as code names for their GPU products, but AMD also thinks it is a good idea to advertise the Radeon branding utilizing graphics of giant fireballs. I mean its not like there is a preexisting mindset that links AMD GPUs to excessive heat or anything... rolleyes.gif
