Lol .. that power virus. Was going to ask for the TL;DV version . Now i don't need too.

Curious though, what mhz was maintained at that ?

Damn, why is the launch of this GPU so secretive?

Looking at temps and what i remember from TPU thread, definitely above stock.

A story:

I helped a friend plan out a build, he bought all the parts I told him to except for the gpu. I told him to get an r9 270, iirc they were like $130ish at the time. He got a 750 ti for $150. I asked why, he said, the guy he knew at the store said nvidia was better and he should get the 750 ti instead. His thinking: well this guy sells pc components so he probably knows what he's talking about.

One strategy that I think would pay off is to have more of a presence. Go to frys, micro centers, best buys, ect., talk with employees, hold events, that sort of thing. Educate the masses on why they should buy and sell your product over another

THAT

i can't count how many times i've walked into a store for a cable or whatnot, start talking about hardware only to have the store employee whip out some cpu/gpu boss or passmark benchmarks. i start showing them some reviews only to hear them call it a shill site. (this is for BOTH sides or the red/green fence).

i now go into stores, say nothing as i get whatever i need and leave.

EDIT:

getting raj to drink some firewater might help:

I still can't work out why they would've gone to all the trouble of building a new overclocking suite for the 480 if it indeed can't overclock at all? It doesn't make any sense, but then again this is AMD we are talking about! tongue.gif

Maybe it needs all the help it can get.

Is getting him drunk to spill the beans on Vega too much to ask?

I hope WattMan is not only for RX480.

Comparing with Fury where they told the whole world that Fury is overclocker dream but ended up overclocking like crap, I will take Wattman anytime anywhere. rolleyes.gif

It's definitely cool but if the card can only OC 50mhz I don't really see the point? Just have to wait and see.

In games that boost might go higher .. i suspect thats poor silicon sample in heavy benching. We have heard of 1380 mhz samples , and that was firestrike too , so those samples i would suspect can game in the 1400s ref boards.

Anyway you cut it that default bios is going to pull power back to 150 watts or less and limit the OC.

However its early days on that , bios updates etc.
