Even into benching, most people aren't running LN2. At max water-cooled.

D-Ice/ice chilled loops is another popular option.

You aren't seriously into benching till you go sub-ambient. And for those die hard benchers, the 980 Ti is still superior.

If according to the specs some sites write of the 4GB in their reviews of the 8GB, it means the 4GB version is not going to run the same as the 8GB version.

Now you are grasping at straws. AMD briefed reviewers on this, they simply said memory speed on 4GB cards was up to the manufacturer and that 7gbps was the minimum allowed spec.

1420 on ref card , highest I've seen.

Interesting stuff too on the memory clocking gains.

Its a failure because AMD promised that 480 CF would beat GTX 1080 and therefor offer much better value. But the truth is two cards only matched GTX 1070.

Its a failure because its only a shy $20 better value than GTX 970 for the 8GB version and not much less value than 390 which it match.

Its a failure because people expected 390X and more out of the card.

The card is a huge MEH

Its a winner because there is competition and most likely prices will drop and be more accessible, they already are, The future GTX 1060 would have been more expensive if not for AMD.

And all round i think AMD deserves a thumb.gif they have done a good job on this card now just want to see a custom card and how well it overclocks

What do you mean "isn't great" the card gains from 34.6 fps to 44.6 fps on average from the switch from DX11 to DX12 that's like 29% increase lol

I crave those custom cards too. Preferably one that is silent and deadly.

But that's just because "Heavy" performs so poorly on DX11, if you look at the other graphs the scaling doesn't look that great.

I don't know if this has been pointed out yet but apparently the RX 480 exceeds the maximum power draw rating set by PCI-SIG for PCIe slots (75W):

 

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-radeon-rx-480-polaris-10,4616-9.html

 

Quote:
 AMD’s Radeon RX 480 draws an average of 164W, which exceeds the company's target TDP. And it gets worse. The load distribution works out in a way that has the card draw 86W through the motherboard’s PCIe slot. Not only does this exceed the 75W ceiling we typically associate with a 16-lane slot, but that 75W limit covers several rails combined and not just this one interface.

Well in Hitman it gains 5 fps that is around 7% gain ... compared to the 970 that actually drops by 3 FPS or aka -5% biggrin.gif seems ok-ish
I do think AMD will polish those drivers sooner than later thou.

I read somewhere that the 4gig and 8gig versions of this card are the same card with 4gigs disabled on one and not on the other o.0
post #1520 of 3674
4 gig cards are not 8 gig cards with half the vram disabled. AMD sent custom bioses to reviewers so they could test the 8 gig card with 8 and 4 gig configurations in benchmarks. This is where that confusion comes from. It's all in the reddit AMA they did yesterday.
