So we will have to see, but you bring a glimmer of hope to what has been a pretty gloomy thread thus far... thumb.gif

Modded (cooling swap only) reference board hit 1425, hitting nano performance. Hard to tell with no pool of samples to draw conclusions from, but I feel 1450-1475 is easily within the realm of possibilities. I say we start low as 99% of users on this forum will run with the hype...

It's seems to be scaling like a beast, it's basically Fury X performance at 1350core 9000mem according to those charts. (well a little lower)

I think many cards may have been throttling, and maybe the german site wound up the fan when testing?

Either way those OC results are intriguing I can't wait to see what AIB cards can do.

It's going to be an interesting and fun silicon lottery to watch when people with custom AIB 480's compete to get the faster card. The strix was said ot have 2x 6 pin, so I would believe that in order to compete, the 2 6 pin will probably be the requirement to see how far polaris can go. Only sad thing is that EK's upcoming waterblock wouldn't be able to cool these custom boards.

The only good thing this card bring is it destroys 970/980/390/390X resale value. I love how this is happening.

Cheap used 980 = well YES

You all need to get your hype straight. Is it a Nano at 1425 or a Fury X at 1350?

I don't need to do anything.

More OC results for those interested and not just trolling for the sake of it.

The card is scaling better than anything from the last few generations from what I'm seeing.

AMD basically released a GTX 970, with possibly worse power consumption, but more memory than an Nvidia GTX 970. The problem is, they did it two years later, and on a 14nm node, as opposed to Nvidia's at 28nm. That's pretty disappointing.

And frankly, I don't think the price is all that great. A couple weeks ago there was a GTX970 on Newegg for $225. When the fire sale starts shortly, there will be 970s for <$200 all day long. I'd take a good AIB GTX 970 for 20% lower price over a reference RX480 any day of the week. Max OC to max OC, the 970 will stomp the 480 across the board.

Looking at the benches he linked to, the 1350MHz benchmarks from pcgameshardware.de, it does look a good deal better than I originally thought. If the AIB cards really do manage 1500MHz+ overclocks I could easily see this thing being faster than the Fury X outright. But that is a huge "IF", and the power consumption numbers are unlikely to be pretty at those clocks as well.

looks like i'll be switching to green team if i want to upgrade, time to punch a hole in my wallet.

Yeah power draw will be huge (sorry earth)

I only game an hour or two a day so not a problem for me, or many casual/mainstream gamers for that matter.
