Cooler. Even on stock is throttling heavily. I dont know why not all reviews said about this problem. They dont even check their stats?
Vrm temps. Its over 70 all the time. A big limit on the overclock just there
1 6 -pin

I will wait for a proper AIB version. First time that i got a bad reference from AMD. The pcb is fine but the cooler and the 1-6pin really limits what this card can do.

On the positives, the card can undervolt really well like i can save 0.1V and still maintain the stock clocks while saving 20-30 watt.

Well i have to go to work now . If i have time tonight before i send this card back i will upload some tests

I purchased mine at MC with a two year warranty. I'll take my reference one back in exchange for a beastly one in a few months😃

I love having a local PC parts solution!

Have you checked if you have a 8GB card. I think you can flash the BIOS and get 8GB 8Gbps card. 4GB 7 GBps is a artificial sku.

It is not a 8GB card. And this is misleading.

Actually AMD only sent the 8GB version of 480. But they also sent a bios that limits the card to 4gb and 7Gbps.

AIB can opt in for 8Gbps 4gb if they want. But no my card is only 4gb

tldr 4gb version can have either 7 or 8 Gbps. It's up to AIBs. The minimum spec is 7

Does it have dual BIOS? Have you tried to flash it. I know that you can flash 8GB to 4GB. I was told by some people that there is no 4GB card. Its the same 8GB card for all SKUs. You probably can't open the card to check physically?

did you remove the cooler and look at the actual chips?

the rumor was they couldn't source the right chips so they all have 8GB and the 4GB version is BIOS limited.

Seems a bit unbelievable to me, but thats the rumor.

It's based on AMD noting they had review samples with 4gb/8gb bios. So, basically, rumor mill processed a fact into bs.
