3028 / 2645 = 14.5% increase in FSU score
) 1:1 scaling if I ever saw great scaling.
SO, assuming all those numbers are real and the scaling is consistent, if there's an RX 480 that can indeed overclock to ~1500, it could very well match a bone stock 980 Ti.Stuff (Click to show)
Also with leaks like these, who needs official reviews?
1500 wouldn't do it. It's better to use the median score than the lowest score. 3028/2680 = 13%.
So using the rest of your math, that is still good scoring/scaling. The problem is the next part. AMD assuming linear scaling continued, another 120mhz on the clock which would bring it close to 1500, but would also bring up the score another 320+/- 10 points. because this is linear scaling. Not approximately 1000 points, that would be a 33% increase. A 10 percent increase in frequency is not going to increase a score by 33%.
So a 1500mhz/2400memory would only bring the score up 3353 points about. To get to 4000 points, you would need 1730-1750mhz clocks and 2800 mhz memory speed which is the speed you would need to get to a gtx 980 ti stock because this is about what a gtx 980 ti scores stock.
Basically to match a gtx 980 ti, it needs close to a 50% increase because that how much the score needs to increase by.Edited by tajoh111 - 6/25/16 at 7:57pm
