Heh, that was my first computer: an original bondi blue iMac, with a 233Mhz PowerPC G3 and an ATI Rage Pro if memory serves. It was pretty great, too; played Star Wars Racer like a charm. It's still working fine, too, just a little bit slow by today's standards.

Then again, 2 GHz for a video card is pretty amazing...

There was discussion about not getting very high on stock cooler, but serious the thing has no heat pipes! Where did they expect it to go? Always get after market if you intend to OC.

Was that the one where you were a pod racer? If so maaaan that game was awesome.

When I was young, early elementary school, the schools here all had macs. Idr exactly but I would guess either Mac ii or Mac se. That's the last time I've ever used one. I've considered a used mbp several times to use for mobile recording, but this dell Studio with a Penryn (lol) just keeps on keeping on

Reference card testing so far: 1680 MHz can be set, but throttle back to ~1300 MHz right after going on heavy duty. The ref cooler is quiet but very weak mad.gif

This will be the case when spending money on a good custom card is actually worth it.

Wait, you got the card ? if so can you monitor wattage during when it throttles down to 13xx ? smile.gif and please check if there are any tessellation improvements smile.gif

Not really, and I didn't have much time with it. There are some key points of the ref as follows

- AMD puts a strict power/temp limit on the BIOS. The 4GB version seems to be hold back more than the 8GB one.

- There is an "hidden" additional boost clock, something like nVidia cards which boost over the set boost clock. 1680 MHz was this boost clock, recorded as the peak when I tried Dota 2 Vulkan @ 1440p ( 300+fps)

- The ref cooler is perfect for the $200 performance, but it can't bring the card to 980ti level. The 6 pin power doesn't help as well.

thanks, btw i was talking about gpuz it can show you watt usage.

so 300$ cards will actually be much faster ? hmmmm

The wattage was bugged out on GPUz, but from the kill-a-watt it was around 150W stable (+50% power limit). As I said the power limit AMD put on this card is quite strict.

I'm not sure about the price. But a 480 at $300 should have a beefy cooler, 8+6 power feed and a beast BIOS. If it's the case I'm sure that it can hold the boost clock of 1680MHz. thumb.gif

Hmm, so it's already using 150w and performance is slower than 1070 which also consumes 150w, kinda disappointing tbh. because for 1680mhz it will probably use around 185-190w. and still loose to 1080( 1070 too). only hope is somehow launch day drivers will improve performance. someone was saying review drivers will be delivered just 2 days before launch. don't know if it's true.

If they can't improve perf/mm^2 how they gonna fight big pascal because it seems they ( amd) haven't improve ipc much. redface.gif
