I would avoid this product until we know everything about this very serious fault. People who can only afford $199 GPU probably don't want to put their motherboard in any sort of danger. We need to spread awareness.
It won't cause problems as OCed cards and certain custom cards already do it but the question that remains is why, why when there is a 6P connector.

This card looks super nice and over engineered.

And charge more than every other company? No doubt biggrin.gif

Asus is a company I firmly ignore when it comes to hardware now, they ride their name all the way to the bank.

With the length of the 480 PCB at only around 7", it's exactly what they should do.

probably so they didn't have to make a new cooler from the ground up, just wack the 1070 one on smile.gif

in my country is 120 euros above some online stores have it at 400+
this is...i dont know how should i call it when someone thinks 30 euros is overpriced./.
This isn't about any set amount of money. This is simply about AMD getting shafted in our market by retailers.
That 1070, after subtracting 19% VAT and converting to USD comes out at $438, 480 after doing the same comes out to $251.

Has anyone seen an RX480 3dmark API test result posted?

We have an entire THREAD dedicated to this. So yeah, I'm sure everybody and their mother and their dog and their mother's dog are aware by now.
no one knows this except few nerds who read hardware forums 24/7. we need all major websites reporting on this. hopefully it will happen.

Then I can only hope you dedicate as much effort to spreading awareness about Asus 960 Strix's fail as well:



This is the original link: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-960,4038-8.html

And the relevant quotes:

The very frequent spikes beyond the motherboard slot’s supposed limit won’t cause immediate damage to the hardware, but there might well be long-term repercussions that are hard to judge now. The same goes for how the system might otherwise be impacted with problems such as “chirping” on-board sound when the mouse is moved.
The Asus GTX 960 Strix should do a much better job smoothing these spikes out.

So yeah, please go ahead and spread the awareness. And while you're at it, please manufacture incite create some outrage on Reddit as well, kthxbai

I'm still not sure why the RX 480 is so great. Can you explain precisely why the bolded statement is true, with evidence?

Here's where it stands at stock:

6.4% faster
2% more efficient




According to TPU, it gains 5% from its overclock.
A factory overclocked 970, without any end user overclocking gains 2% over stock.

OC'ed 480 is 11.72% faster than stock 970
Factory OC'ed 970 is 2% faster than stock 970, with headroom available for an additional 12.3% from the end user. 12.54% faster in total. The MSI Gaming checks in an 16.7% faster than stock.

Here are some direct comparisons: http://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2496-amd-rx-480-8gb-review-and-benchmark-vs-gtx-970-1070/page-6

It's sad that an overclocked RX 480 can't even definitively beat a factory OC'ed 970 that still has headroom left over.

I was wrong about the overclocked power consumption for the 480. It seems reasonable, and right now a 480 is definitely the better purchase.

The bottom line is that AMD still hasn't escaped Maxwell. I can make a case for this; not sure if I'm right anymore. I'm not sure what AIB cards will bring to the table, I'll shut up for now, but the fact that this argument can even be made is just depressing. It just isn't good enough. Doesn't it suck that this ******* turned out to be right? http://forums.anandtech.com/showpost.php?p=38189102&postcount=71

He lowballed the card (back in the rumored 3600 Firestrike Ultra days) and now the card is out, and he doesn't have to buy one, because he was right, even though he's an insufferable green team die hard and the post was meant to mock AMD and it was spot on.
so since you like numbers so much

please do this

380/x vs 480
960 vs 480
970 vs 480
980 vs 480
please include both dx11 and dx12
and get more samples not only 2-3 cherry picked reviews
lets see how the 480 is doing since its replacing the last mid tier amd card
