It makes me wonder though, why would anybody ever buy the reference cards at that point, other than price? Speaking of price, all that "amazing" stuff I just said about 1600MHz AIB cards goes out the window if they price them significantly higher than reference. I mean, say Sapphire releases their 480 super duper X or whatever that actually can do 1600MHz at $299. OK, that's still a really great card. But if it creeps up any more than that, like say $349 or so, then it will be far too close to the 1070 which will still annihilate it. 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

Just an observation but you seem to be overhyping this card also. 1600MHz overclock based on a rumor? Boost clock will be 1700MHz+.

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.

Lighten up, it was a joke. Do you not see the humor in the slower overclock beating the faster card?

Thanks. TTL also had a video with the 7950 not too far behind in performance. I'll stay where I'm at unless I get a reason to upgrade to a 1440p+ monitor. So far, I just can't justify it.

I think it's a decent card right now.. AIB cards could make it a great card if it doesn't go past $269.

I very clearly said IF in that post. I have already laid out my thoughts on this card as we now know it in what I think was a very fair and un-hyped way. What I was responding to there was SPECULATION, and IF that were to be the case it would indeed make a massive difference in my (and other's) opinion of the card.

I'm still getting one of these cards to replace my 270X, though I will probably wait for the AIB's at this point...

But that is a huge "IF", and the power consumption numbers are unlikely to be pretty at those clocks as well.

That review had a 4% core overclock and a 10% memory overclock and performance increased 10%? Does that imply it is bandwidth limited? But yikes, 40W more power draw for a 4% overclock is not a good sign for 1400+ cards.

Someone needs to make an ITX card stat.

Meh, not really missing out with my 380x. Once I can get some good fans to feed my 380x more air I can overclock it to around 1130MHz as I know its a good chip from my undervolting.

No, its not at all...

another weird thing is this chip is less dense compared to what gp104 did vs 28nm ( GP104 is 75% more dense and Pol10 is 71%) , even though 14nm is supposed to be more dense than 16nm. i wish vega will be on TSMC or kiss goodbye to 1080 performance, let alone 1080ti. also it seems after hawaii, every gpu they made is under performing for some reason.

They also need to ditch that GCN, or they will never beat nvidia in perf/w/mm. it's the time for new clean sheet design incorporating only the good parts from GCN. GCN is only good for vr+consoles where they can use all of its features, but on pc (dx11) it has more unused parts wasting mm^2 and wattage.

And for the next time, shoot every hayper/fake hyper with a freaking nuke, and BAN that WCCF, they did more to the hyping on performance than amd themselves.

/r
Cough coincidence that everything since Hawaii is based off of tonga? Cough cough those features tho

How much of the efficiency deficiency can be attributed to process? We knew tsmc 16nm was slightly more efficient on a small scale, how would that translate on a larger die?
