i suggest you read up on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Price_gouging

Depends on the cooling solution, Asus Strix cards were my first choice as I can run the cards with lower fan rpms so should be quieter. looking at rx 480 289 vs GTX 1060 325 I then at that price might as well pony up for Inno3D triple fan GTX 1070 £400...What I'm thinking of is now my 750 Vapor-X run at 90-100% sustained in GTA 5 the fans get really loud. I running at 1050, I can run my card at 1125 but the temps get too much. So I'm thinking if the card can take an overclock then make sure the cooling solutions is up to keeping it cool 90-100% max sustained without sounding like your in a wind tunnel...

Not a fan of asus's direct touch heatpipe tech on the Strix but seems even with only 2.5 - 3 heatpipes touching the gpu its significantly cooler than the Nitro if i'm reading this review right.

https://www.computerbase.de/2016-07/sapphire-radeon-rx-480-nitro-oc-test/4/

67c vs 79c in Anno.

Also Strix is quieter as well , i guess its 2 fans vs 3 so it should be. If i was in the market for an AIB 480 it would now be a bit of a toss up between the two. Alhough the lower ram voltage on the strix is a problem - can that be adjusted ??

Seems both 8gb AIBs Strix / Nitro don't hit 1400 (4gb nitro did go over that at de) , i'm wondering if a little tweak to core voltage eg above 1.15 would get there. I think > 1.15 that can be done in gpu tweak.

I am waiting for XFX, Gigabyte, MSI and Powercolor and then get a better comparison between the 6

Hopefully there will be more reviews this week, give us an idea on the overclocking with more samples.

Now that there's a review out done by the same site for both the strix and nitro, it appears the Strix is ~4dB quieter and 7c + quieter; I'm a little disappointed Sapphire redface.gif. Judging by your game line-up I feel like the 1060 may be a better choice for you.

I wonder how they'd behave at same TDP. Didn't they come with different ones?

That said, it's probably not gonna make that much of a difference.

The Strix has a larger heatsink, so in turn more surface area to dissipate heat on top of the extra fan. The Strix will likely always be better in terms of temperatures and noise; I do hope sapphire decides to release a Vapor-X card.

I've gone and done it got two 7970 Vapor-X it 5% faster per clock and should be able to get 1200MHz so 73% faster per card. I'm playing GTA 5 at the moment so should be able tide me over till Vega. nVidia are charging too much for the GTX 1070 for me it's £300 card...

Has anyone tried the RX 480 with the Accelero Twin Turbo III? Can actually get one at no cost to go with reference card, but not sure about effectiveness.

edit: Oh nevermind, found a thread just below with someone who did. Lol.

And they put pressure on devs to change benchmarks so it suits their hardware from Kolluck's post 'I believe the initial confusion was because Nvidia PR was putting pressure on us to disable certain settings in the benchmark, when we refused, I think they took it a little too personally.' http://www.overclock.net/t/1569897/various-ashes-of-the-singularity-dx12-benchmarks/1200
