Friendly reminder that crypto mining has rised again and the farms are hunting for this new efficient chip.

Updated Info: I will have some more info to share Saturday for 460,470 and Vega10, I just gotta get my brother to look over and "ok" what i written out. In the mean time, I wanted to update on a few things i did learn today from my bro and his partners in Seattle and to clear things up on the 1500mhz guarantee Rx 480 cards i mentioned before. I just got home a little bit ago and its going on 2am so i just wanted to post this and gonna hit the sack. I can't always reply back to my threads here as most of the time i am at work so i can only pop in and post and quickly leave. Anyways, until i post new updates for the Rx 460, 470 and Vega 10 this weekend, this is a few minor updates concerning Rx 480, below.

Update info on the Rx 480
Earlier here today i posted some info on two different AIB vendors releasing $300 dollar 1500mhz Rx 480 Editions. There is some clarity i wanted to update on what exactly this means. Its quite simple, There will be some "superclocked" editions (< not the exact name) released with a bios option set at 1500mhz, its as simple as that. As for how many others vendors will release these Rx 480's that have the bios option switch to 1500mhz is unknown outside of the two companies that i am aware of. I cannot share which companies are releasing this but honestly I am told that all 6+8 pin Rx 480's are said to get this 1500mhz mark with software, Let me just quote what they said...this is a C/P from my email that was forwarded to me by my brother just a few hours ago.

This particular $300 Rx 480 OC Edition will have toggle with two bios options - Standard bios of 1266mhz and Extreme bios of 1500mhz - All 6+8 pin models will be able to reach the 1500mhz mark - the only difference is some editions will have a overclock bios setting that will be set at the 1500mhz mark - while other cards will have to be done manually although today its easy to do manually by just a few clicks of a button with software - While running at 1570mhz - the OC edition runs at 72c with 99% gpu load with 65% fan - one impressive feat to say the least - This bodes well for AMD's new Polaris cards as it shows these cards are capable of even more than this impressive 1570mhz mark - In fact, in a closed box setup, we were able to "easily" obtain 1600mhz while running Battlefield 4 for over an hour with zero crashes or artifacts all while keeping below the 75c mark while using 99% gpu load - Even more impressive is the fact that the voltage usage leaves room for even a bit further tweaking to further our overclock past 1600mhz - One has to wonder what AMD has with the entire lineup of Vega right now - we can only imagine pure bliss in terms of performance at the top enthusiast level - AMD really does have something special on their hands. The Rx 480 while running 1500mhz is on par with the stock 1070 in-game, it even beats it on some games at this clock, anything more and the 480 begins to put some distance between the two cards. Keep in mind this is Dx12 games, this is where GCN 4 truly shows off.


Earlier my brother and I were talking and I mentioned to him about how i felt about what AMD is doing and my brother said i literally took the words out of his mouth in what i am about to say below...


...we both are very curious and intrigued at how AMD is targeting these new cards, Its as if they are not even trying to target Nvidia at all but rather setting a new lineup of cards and a completely new lineup of performance targets. In other words, AMD's cards are not really targeting Nvidia's nor any of AMD's previous cards but rather...setting a completely new standard of graphic cards with a whole new identity and vision that will be a new trend setter unlike any time before. I really feel this way and my brother agrees as he said we must be brothers as we had this exact same thoughts in mind. My brother and I are both in the Gaming/Hardware Industry, I work for a game company in Chicago but my brother has been in the industry longer than myself working in a big software/hardware company in Seattle. Anyways, I am very excited at what AMD is doing here. I think they are doing a remarkable job and they should be commended by both Nvidia and AMD fans alike. Forget all the petty fanboy trolling...we are all on the same team here, green or red, we are gamers and computer enthusiasts...we should be excited to see AMD step in new waters. I am, my bro and his colleagues are...so should you.

PS I'll have more info on the Rx 460, Rx 470 and Vega 10 (Rx 490) on saturday as my brother was out for the night so i could only get a few things answered. And yes Rx 490 is the smallest chip of Vega lineup confirmed., I'll explain more tomorrow, its something my brother told me but i gotta be careful with NDA,etc so i gotta check to see how much i can post when i get more time to talk with him, when i do, i'll post it for any interested for that info.

Play Hard!

So at higher speeds you're suggesting performance decreases? Nobody withholds better results regardless of how good or bad scaling is past a certain point unless they're sandbagging, which clearly isn't the case.

I guess saying that Bulldozer would be a step backwards from Thuban instead of an INTEL destroyer as many "leaks" were showing until just before launch was just a ridiculous attempt to sabotage AMD?

I suppose saying that Fury X would top out at around 1,140 MHz after "leaks" all the way up until release day were showing 1,300 MHz or more and even AMD themselves promised it would be an overclocker's dream was just a ridiculous attempt to sabotage AMD?

I suppose that saying unlocked voltage would not come close to helping Fury X reach 1,300 MHz while "leaks" were saying it's the saviour Fury X needs was just a ridiculous attempt to sabotage AMD?

I suppose saying that the GTX Titan would perform around 30 % slower than all the "leaks" right up until release was a ridiculous attempt to sabotage... NVIDIA? I must have been sabotaging NVIDIA.

I suppose that saying the average air overclock for Skylake would be ~4.5-4.6 GHz on air instead of the 5 GHz "leaks" were showing was a ridiculous attempt to sabotage AM... No wait, I must have been sabotaging INTEL.

I suppose saying that INTEL would be blocking BCLK overclocking on Skylake non-K processors was just a ridiculous attempt to sabotage AMD, right? Nope, that's INTEL again. Must've been sabotaging INTEL.

I suppose that saying the i7-6950X would, on average, not manage 4.5 GHz by quite a margin despite all the hopes and dreams of it clocking as well as Haswell-E was a ridiculous attempt to sabotage A... Nope, Must've been sabotaging INTEL again.

Funny that it's ONLY "ridiculous," "fanboyism," "sabotage," etc when it's bad news about AMD, but if it's bad news about any other company or good news about AMD it's automatically legit and fair.

If not being one of those generating unobtainable hype about AMD's products as many often do leading up to release which then makes a decent AMD product seem disappointing makes me a ridiculous AMD sabotager then I guess that's what I am rolleyes.gif

Edit: what happened to those PCtuning guys that were supposed to have 2 non-NDA 480s? They went radio silent in a hurry.

I never thought the 480 would only be as fast as a 390. In my mind there's no way it's not faster than a 390X but even if it were, the price makes up for it. And it will almost certainly OC much better. But we'll find out soon enough.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, so you claim based on your now defunct site that you can't prove even existed. None of your previous fairy tale predictions are even relevant to this discussion anyway. You said a month ago that P10 couldn't do more than 850MHz and was delayed til October. A couple weeks later AMD announces P10 launch on June 29 and almost every leak agrees on a 1266MHz stock clock speed. Your rumors are BS and nobody takes you seriously.

Um, AMD themselves only showed 480CF beating 1080 at AotS. Now it is about to trade blows with 1070...what.
I hope AMD launch doesn't backfire with this amount of overhype going on lol.

OCing is an unknown at this point. The best guess we can make right now is stock performance around that of a 980 with the absolute possibility of good OC's getting it near 1070. But it may also be an "OCers dream" and end up still only just slightly ahead of the 980. Just have to wait and see.

The worrying thing to me about Moey's info is that he keeps stressing DX12 performance. What about DX11? redface.gif
