[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 205  

post #2041 of 2870
But AMD should be ready for high demand.

They what to sell what 1million + cards right they have the TSMC and they got even a Samsung Contract to make them with.
In addition the RX480 is not rly a high end and crrently a lot of players are using slightly lower or equivalent and they won't be rushing in to make the transition from 970 or even 960 GTX to an RX480.
Maybe later but not on 29-th at least.

By the time ppl start wanting those cards desperately considering the fact that we already hear of good supply like everywhere it sounds even miners are predicted by AMD.

I don't think AMD uses TSMC.

AMD might have a monster on its hands, its very good performance matched with its great price will be just the thing for those of us that haven't upgraded in few years. I'm coming from a gtx670 and before that a 4850. Like everyone else I'm really looking forward to some wide ranging benchmarks.

They use GloFo

Oh ... not TSMC but GLOBALFOUNDRIES ... i am new to this don't judge me smile.gif and i am bad with names.


+ on the subject i just need to replace my 650 GTX ... so regardless if the performance of the RX480 is equal to 390 /390x / 980 or even better it still best possible cards for the money range that i can spare smile.gif

So given the high supply i will eventually get one preferably the 1 model i like best. smile.gif and preferably before august -30 .... (Legion comes)

I read a discussion about AMD not being able to hold their end of the agreement with GloFo and then they made a contract with samsung for even more production lines. So people were wondering what is going on. And for a while now i think i know the answer it is to produce MASSIVE amounts of the Polaris 10/11 cards.

Edit: I just noticed something in another thread. Miners won't rly want the 8GB versions of this card as they don't have any benefit from the extra 4GB over the RX480-4GB version. Is that also correct and making it safe to asume they won't be looking for the 8GB versions as not to waste money on them?

AFAIK 14nm finfet lpp and lpe are a joint effort from Samsung and glofo.
And the thing with glofo was a take or pay arrangement for the wafers

I will be at Microcenter this Wednesday to snag one of these. Each store is shooting for 100 cards to start.

I'll start with a reference 4gb version and cover the worse case scenario. Provided it's not a mad house getting one.

My 10 am client had to cancel so it's my destiny to be at MC when they open instead lol

As far as i know AMD has a contract to make a set amount of product per year and they were not managing to fill up what was expected from them so they suffered. In addition GloFo has licensed the 14nm from Samsung but then AMD goes and makes another contract with Samsung for even more production lines. So it's part of their plan to produce a lot of those polaris dies otherwise they won't need higher production line.

"“Because Samsung Electronics and GF have same IP for 14-nano processing, chips that are designed by AMD will all be produced at both factories.” said a person who is familiar with this industry. “If products are produced from both factories, AMD won’t have to worry about a problem regarding lack of supplies.”"

That's pretty much exactly what I said. Lol

Take or pay means you use it or dont, you pay either way (usually a reduced rate but not much).

That was for 28nm tho

It seems like you're just searching the entire internet looking for any bad news on AMD. I don't think AMD intended any1 with a R9 290/290X/390/390X to upgrade to the 480, most likely they were targeting the 7950/7970/380/380X/280/280X crowd.
