I don't understand your negative tone. The shiny cooler $100 of FE 1080 also hits 83C, mate, and throttles hard. At least 480 doesnt throttle, it just can't hold that tasty 1680 MHz boost biggrin.gif
So it doesn't crash but just down clocks itself ? so maybe silicon is able to achieve more frequency but limited by available power unlike fury ?

Basically 390x lvl performance for 120w which is what i've said many times and what i expected based on 1% less tflops. it's the oc p/w that shocks me because it doesn't seem normal.

So, you think it is the mediocre cooler not the 6-PIN holding back the card from boosting? Could be driver too. Is the driver even out yet?

Ignore Chev, he still have to sell so many 1070s today. lol

I would also imagine, like the 1080, they might be hitting a TDP wall. It may be limited to 150w or so and that's whats preventing the card from OC'ing higher. I'd imagine with bios that allow upto 160-175w we'll see some crazy high overclocks...

I've also been thinking that the best of the chips might be binned for the beast models , it would make sense if so. We also know TDP climbs with Heat , if the fan is locked at 58% then its not helping the power draw that's for sure. It will be interesting to see what happens when the fan is set to 100 % . Although the AIB cards will be totally superior in all metrics i would suspect.

For me the cooler is the problem as the card heat up pretty quick. But it really needs more power to consistently hit higher lock as 150W is the limit of the 6 pin already.

Note that it's only when you overclock and the fan is realy quiet this time (yet weak). Leave it at stock you have the perfect performance for $200

I heard you can draw more then 150W from 6-pin anyway, true ?


also has anyone tried max OC of the reference while setting fan to 100% ?

in the above pic a 81% fan is keeping the 1380Mhz 480 at 74C

The power limit is locked in the BIOS, mate.

At least the AIB 480s will provide more than a Decibel reduction which will be a nice change of late.
