[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 128  

post #1271 of 2870
The heat sink assembly on that 480 is disappointingly small but they have to save money somewhere.

I wonder if these cards are binned. I hope not.

GloFo's only 14nm fab is in New York, so these dies must be being shipped overseas to be packaged.

The AMD CPUs still say this (even the new excavator cores), that is why I assumed the GPUs would follow. Hilariously enough I never looked at a GPU package close enough to realize the naming conventions are different.

Now It makes me wonder why they do it because there is enough space to add both around the edges

is the rx 480 8gb competing with the 1070 or just 1060? since we know it's not with the 1080

I would expect nothing better than the 1060. We will know for sure in a week from today, the 29th.

GF is using Samsung 14nm FF node, so the cards could probably be produced at either foundries depending on which would give better price and/or lead times. Or maybe the initial batches are produced at both to get a big boost of initial stock.

But thanks for previewing just how the Nvidia fanboys are going to respond when the card does come out. "Hahahaha, another AMD fail! Its ONLY a little faster than an OC 980 after all that hype, what a joke!"

I think beating a max OC 980 with a $199 card is pretty dam epic myself and anything beyond that would just be frosting on the cake...

That may be what AMD was aiming for, but the hype train is at full speed and now it is expected to be able to rival the 1070. That is what people are going to remember and expect. Just like the 1080 is an "overclocking failure" because it doesn't clock to 2.3 like people hyped. We saw the same thing with Fury - expectations went too high and suddenly it was a failure for not beating Titan X.

The card is said to run in the low 60C region and that's the reference version, fairly sure the small heatsink is plenty.

And the 1080 FE was shown to run 67C at 2100, but we saw how that turned out. 150W through that die is roughly the same as the 180W the 1080 is putting through its correspondingly larger die, so thermal density may be a problem once you start overclocking.

I consider the 1080 and overclocking failure because its real stock speeds are 1850ish, and cards barely reach 2050 stable. While 200MHz is nice and what a lot of cards through generations have been getting, it is barely more than 10% in reality, on top of which Nvidia made wildly false claims and impressions that 2.1Ghz would be a really easy to achieve standard on any old card and with really low temperatures, which proved completely false. So when Nvidia claimed one thing and supposedly showed a demo of it, people expected the better cards out there to be able to get at least an extra 100MHz over what was "easily achievable on any random card". So that is why it is considered an overclocking failure. The 1080 didn't live up to Nvidia's actual promise, it didn't live up to hype, it didn't live up to standard expectations, and it didn't live up to past GPU average OC history.

the minimum setting for CF using XDMA with good performance is 2.0 x8

Not sure I must've missed the flir pic.

Good points.

Valid.

Better cooler and VRM.

Normal.

Maybe to get as many Nano's out the door as they can. I definitely don't want to invest in a 4 gb Nano that has thermal or power throttling for $400 when I can get a RX 480 for $200/$229 and a $50 arctic cooler. I'll just give it a shot and let everyone know how it goes. thumb.gif
Or wait 2 weeks and get the card with warranty etc.

People are just too impatient, I'm sure custom cards will be released, it would be really stupid if they didn't. Wait, see reviews, see what card you like the most, wait for prices to settle down as I'm sure the sellers will be greedy at the start as always. Then get your card when prices stabilize and most models are available.

6+1 should be fine for the power consumption, right?
