That's not exactly weak or cheap for 150W max power draw, that's downright over engineered.

Not sure haven't looked at closely, I could be wrong but I was imagining them trying to cut costs on the PCB.

At the same time they have to make sure the cards don't die early or they will be losing money in returns.

There are cheap/expensive ways to make a power delivery system too, the number of phases doesn't say everything.

You can see the cost savings here tongue.gif

Yeah exactly, and I think they will use that same reference shroud on many cards that are upcoming.

Nichicon are basically the highest quality caps you can get.

I can't confirm myself if the caps used on the PCB are from them, as these things are far from my area of understanding, I just remember reading that's what the power system is using.

I like the Russian stickers at the beginning.

power system is deff over engineered, AMD always does that.

It isnt being held back by the 6pin.

150 watts is spec. You can draw way more than 75watts over 6pin on a decent power supply.

Cooling with be the bottleneck, not power delivery.

Do not get too optimistic about the performance. Only thing that might push RX480 above GTX980/390X is 1.6GHz OC. If it overclocks under 1.5GHz it will lose.

Here is my 290 + 290X CFX @ 1275/1625MHz

In general 290X will score ~ 7% more point clock per clock then 290.

These a bit old but still relevant.

Hm...the option to define all power states individually is nice thing smile.gif

it really is, I hate it when some application holds me at 2d clocks (I'm looking at you Battle.net launcher) even having the application minimized locks my gpu clocks at 2d. would like to undervolt/underclock my 2d application controls.
