Polaris RX 480 / RX 470 / RX 460 Discussion Thread - Page 3  

post #21 of 991
Thread Starter 
I am still rather bugged by the lock or NDA not lifted before launch. I need crossfire results and me personally may not really care about the performance of a single gpu. I am wanting to bench its possibly but rather hard to make any decision with nothing in hand until launch day. I am hearing various things and most are hard to believe but some are possibly very plausible. Such as the stock heat sink sucking really bad for overclocking on ref cards. While this may not be a big deal i need more specifics because i want to know if water cooling will help OC. This would be nice for benching knowledge i guess. Anyways I'm just blabbing however DAMN YOU AMD. I have a feeling its going to be more disappointing than good if they are locking the NDA this long.

from the few people that have their cards, ref coolers dont OC well, and are bios locked to 150w.

You are probobly gonna have to wait for AIBs if you want any OC headroom.

most likely to give resellers time to build stock.

Someone who works at a microcenter said their store only got 4 1080s at launch. That same branch had 100 rx480s ready to go last week.

I don't doubt this at all. I am curious about things like VRM temps and as you said Bios lock/wattage limits. Fiji really rubbed me the wrong way in this regard, the powerplay/throttling really just irked the living hell out of me. I really see these scaling well in crossfire. I also wonder if die surface/density will be an issue for heat as well if serious overclocks can be done. I doubt these cards will get full cover waterblocks due to the price/size. If it all looks bleak ill hold off for a while.

I am impatient i guess lol. I thought maybe the changes they made would help both dx12 and dx11. Still curious about driver overhead also with dx11 vs hawaii/grenada/fiji

I do not care about overclock actually.

All the while I'm using Intel HD 530... This consider an upgrade?

At this moment I just need a card to support 1080p smile.gif

i figured, they came from gasolina on TPU, i assume he pulled them from the CD.

they arent the latest BTW, the press drivers are newer.

I havent come accross them however.

But a guy from bits and chips confirmed they exsist.
