Polaris RX 480 / RX 470 / RX 460 Discussion Thread - Page 37  

post #361 of 991
I have a 1440p 144Hz FreeSync monitor. Would an RX 480 provide a better experience, due to FreeSync and LFC, than a faster 1070? I currently have a 7950 that doesn't support FreeSync so I can't even judge for myself how good it is. Or would the 1070's higher FPS beat FreeSync? I mainly play Assassin's Creed and I'm waiting to play Rise of the Tomb Raider and Witcher 3 (I won't even spoil the experience with my 7950). Not interested in Doom, Overwatch, CS:Go or other FPS games.

Imo you will have a better experience using freesync than just simply chasing higher frames with the 1070. With that being said, i would buy a 480, and Sell it when vega releases near or just after the new year so you can upgrade.

The nice thing about freesync (as you may already know) is that the game is going to look smooth even at slightly lower frames. As far as I'm concerned, a really high hz monitor is best for fast paced shooters and other games that require fast reaction timing. Otherwise, if I was playing rpg games i would honestly prefer it to be just a really smooth 40-60 fps because i hate the soap opera effect.
Sorry AMD

While I really like Freesync/Gsync a 1070 will offer a better experiance most of the time, at 144 Hz judder from late frames isn't as bad as at 60 Hz and the 1070 is enough faster that the improvement to motion blur is probably worth it.

This is assuming money is not an object, if I had a Freesync monitor I would probably take your advice. A 480 with Freesync is good enough to hold out until Vega but I don't think it would beat a 1070 for user experiance. wink.gif

I agree with the above.
If you already have a Freesync monitor, buy an RX 480 and sell it later down the line for Vega.

but... i think you misread my post ... redface.gif
i wanted to compare the power consumption between "max OC OV on memory" vs "stock clock and undervoltage on memory" while in both runs , core voltage is @1.025 and core clocks are the same (1265)

so
1-
1265 core clock
1.025 core voltage
4000 Fan speed
2000 memory clock
lowest possible (stable) memory voltage

2-
1265 core clock
1.025 core voltage
4000 fan speed
2250 memory clock
some overvoltage on the memory

Basically i want to see how much power the Memory of this card consumes rolleyes.gif

sorry for my poor english BTW redface.gif

Nope, was my bad. Yeah I can do that.

Nope, got tired of the whole medieval RPG genre years ago. Plus the gameworks blah blah blah. The only game out of CDPR or even the RPG genre in general lately I've been interested in is Cyberpunk 2077 and if they screw it up with gameworks, I will be very upset.

Damn, wanted you to test the perf delta between HairWorks on and off, since nobody on the internet did it.

In Fallout 4, the RX 480 matched the Fury X with Godrays on.

Alright, maintained stock clock for the GPU and my voltages. Only adjusted the memory clock/voltages.

Stock Clocks (1265/2000)/Low Voltage (1.025V/.89V) (-125mV/-110mV) GPU Draw ~109W

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12888450

Stock Clock (1265/2000)/Stock Voltage (1.025V/1.0V) (-125mV/-0mV) GPU Draw ~111.5W

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12888089

OCed (1265/2250)/Low Voltage (1.025V/1.025V) (-125mV/+25mV) GPU Draw ~121.5W

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12888258

OCed (1265/2250)/Max Voltage (1.025V/1.15V) (-125mV/+150mV) GPU Draw ~154.5W

thanks thumb.gif

now that's exactly what i wanted biggrin.gifrolleyes.gif

seems the impact of frequency is higher than Voltage on Power Draw in terms of memory ... rolleyes.gif (run2 vs run3) that was unexpected .
post #370 of 991
And the memory voltage whacked out my GPU temp as well. Look at 3v4. It jumped my temp by 10c even with the fan speed the same. wth.gif
