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

Kind of agree with you there. AMD's power efficiency is till lagging behind nVidia. If there are no major change with Vega the AIO cooler of Fury X might appear again with big Vega.

But for now what 480 can bring on the table is enough tbh. wink.gif

The cheapest but not the smoothest option would be dual 1070s. Which is still over 800USD in US.

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
Was the 150 watts mesured when the 480 was oc'ed or it was at stock ? Thnx in advance smile.gif

It was about 147W MAX, not average. Where as the 1.5x bigger 1070 has 150Wish typical/average gaming on TPU.

I don't think they need to get to NVs perf/mm2 to still be effective. If the pricing is right for the performance then i don't think a lot of people will worry to much about 20-30 watts difference. I certainly could care less. Are we going to worry about 10 watt differences at 10nm ? i hope not.

Theres also such a wide range of performance factors to consider. Eg dx11 performance / dx12 performance / vulcan performance (to come) . I would say if you compare this cards dx12 performance its performance per watt will be a whole lot stronger than looking at its dx11 performance.

We really only know firestrike perf at present and that shows a GTX980 above a 390x .. but a 390x is faster in ROTR than a 980 (4k) and a few other games so i think we have to wait and see what happens in a wide variety of games as synthetics won't tell the full story.

Update: A video from a Thai retailer has leaked out who was showcasing the performance and features of the Radeon RX 480 graphics card. The video provides us a good look at the performance in 3DMark with the press drivers along with the Radeon WattMan tool. The stability of the card has some issues as it crashed in 3D mark even at default clocks due to which the benchmark had to be run again. The retailer was using a Crossfire setup of the Radeon RX 480 and the whole video of the demonstration can be seen below:
Quote:
Update: Aside from the benchmarks, you can also find the power consumption of the card at overclocked speed in the picture below. At 1328 MHz, the card runs at 88C (Degrees) and has a power consumption close to 147W when being fully utilized under gaming or benchmarking load. Other performance tests have showed that usual gaming power consumption will be around 115-120W.

Oh don't get me wrong, card is great for it's price. but from technical standpoint it's not that great since it's after 4-5 years they are making huge changes in architecture. i don't care about p/w but still it shows what they lag or achieve.
