[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 149  

post #1481 of 2870
Here's the full scoop on the RX 480:

- At stock clocks it will beat a stock GTX 980 and 390X by 5% or so, maybe more.

- It will OC by at least 25-30%, reaching speed in excess of 1500MHz reference. The AIB cards may get into the 1600's.

- Performance at max OC will be significantly higher than the 980 at the same OC (and obviously far beyond the 390X which can't OC anywhere near as high).

- Some max OC 480's (those possible 1600MHz ones) will come very close to matching stock 980Ti's and 1070's. They will definitely be faster than the stock Fury X.

- Temps will be pushed at max OC on reference but P10 will not be any hotter a chip than GP104. In fact, due to lower OC potential, it will be a good bit cooler at max OC.

- DX12 performance from the 480 will be far more impressive than anything Nvidia has to offer, at least when factoring in chip size and price. DX11 will bring impressive gains for AMD but no better than Nvidia.

- Drivers will steadily improve over the first year of release and we will see 480's increase 10-20% in performance over that time, becoming very close indeed to 980Ti and 1070 performance all around by this time next year.

- Even the most expensive AIB cards will not be $300. Most will be between $250-$275.

- The RX 480 will do exceptionally well in synthetics, outperforming its gaming performance by a bit. For some reason it does really well in 3dmark and Unigine benches.

- Availability on launch day will be good, with most people looking for a reference card able to get them without difficulty (in the US at least). AIB's will be out within a couple of weeks and their availability will similarly be great (unlike a certain recent green release).

- NDA on reviews will drop before the 29th.


That is all the info I have to share with you guys right now. My neighbor's son's brother-in-law works at one of the regular watering holes of several of the AMD engineers and was given an impromptu demonstration of the card late one night, after a ferocious beer pong battle. Oh, and Vega will indeed be out before the end of the year, but not quite by October...

wow a maxed out OCed 600$ card is stronger than a 230$ card
WOW
