[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Can Hit 1.5Ghz+, New Overclocking Tool With Voltage Control Coming - Page 63  

post #621 of 2870
It runs hot in any slot. I had considered it but I only bought it at the end of the last year to hold me over until the 490X. A single 290X just doesn't cut 1440p 144hz. I'm just going to give my 290s to my little brother who will run them stock anyways so I'm not going to bother. It doesn't pass 90c either way it's just dissapointing that it runs warm and doesn't OC at all compared to my other

doesn't sound optimistic

It doesn't mean it needs it. We'll have to see how 480 overclocks and at what threshold does it need additional voltage. If venodrs have decided to make it premium and charge additional $50, they better at least add additional 8pin.

I'm just saying,RX480 8GB is already $50 over $200. Now we're learning that a version taht can oc well will have 6+8-pin and will probably cost another $50 premium. So we've got a $300 6-8-pin card that overclocked may come close to the likes of the cheapest $380 1070s, running a single 8-pin and auto fan with +80 degrees.

I don't think 1 6-pin will limit OC-ing as we know it can support much more than 75W. It will depend on the aftermarket coolers imo, but all cards that have good ones will also have a 8-pin, or 6+6(8) pin

If an 8GB RX480 with 8+6 pin can OC to near 1070 performance for $300, I don't see that as a bad thing at all.

Plus if the 1080 is any indication, the absolute cheapest 1070 with the junkiest of coolers will probably still cost $389, so the value aspect of RX480 is certainly still there.

im not sayin this. im saying that all we know is entry price for rx 480. 8 gigs version can cost ~20$ more but i highly doubt if it will be charged additional 50$
