[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 115

That's precisely why I think that $300 AIB cards are entirely dependent on how well 480 clocks and how it responds to additional voltage. There is a niche for highly custom 480 with amazing clocks and additional voltage capacity if the performance is there.

It looks like Newegg just took it down. I wasn't able to open the link at the time I found it in a search. It appears Newegg was in the process of removing the item.

Please don't say that marketing teams are watching OCN biggrin.gif

There is no justification for charging up to $350 (let alone $300) for something with exactly the same chip as a $200 card on it.

Maybe if they purposely gimped any chips under $300 so the $350 cards were 'worth it' then yeah, I'd never buy another AMD card.

Better VRM's/power delivery, better cooler, extra 4GB ram. There's no way that can blow out to above $300, if it does, it's price gouging for enthusiasts and a premium product.

If AIB's can't do solid power delivery and a good cooler for $50 more then something is wrong.

Seems strange to me that AMD would give a price that wasn't an MSRP - they don't control AIB pricing, so how do they know they'll end up at $300? Makes more sense that they just state it as a rounded-off price bracket where the cards will fall, especially when they use the phrase "at mainstream price points from $100-300" - but I guess we'll find out in July.

$229 for 8 GB + $50 = close to $300, bro. $300 isn't that far off for AIBs.

What if they can directly compete with the 1070 for $350 though, doesn't that change your perception of the card even if it is the same chip as the $200 card?

Well if they aren't predicting AIB card's prices then what would the $300 price be for exactly? AMD has gone AIB only route with cards before in the past, it seems unlikely they wouldn't be discussing such things with the AIB partners now about the Polaris lineup.

Then why can't a $270 version compete with a 1070 too.

I think some of us are thinking there will be magical OC results the more money we pour into the PCB.

Sooooo, I'm thinking of grabbing one of the AIB RX480 boards in hopes that down the road it will crossfire with a Zen APU.

 

Any thoughts on that?   

 

Also, I would like to know if this 380x I'm using would be compatible with a Zen APU using 14nm. Is the process a factor or can it be achieved in software. That's how much I don"t know about all this.

 

I plan on using this 43" 1080p Lg tv for a few more years and hope my next purchase on that front will be Quantum Dot technology.  So one of these plus a good APU should suffice by then. Surely they'll have CF working better, I hope.
