AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 159

This is why I wish reviewers had different test rigs for different cards. Nobody is going to be using a RX 480 with an 5960x overclocked to 4.5GHz. It would be much more realistic to test low-mid cards with a CPU like an i3-6100 or an i5-4460.

I agree. It's really sad to see GCN/AMD still struggling with their DX11 driver overhead.

I wouldnt say that. RX 480 does TERRIBLE in BF3 and BF4 as well as a few other games, sometimes at or below R9 290 according to a few reviews.

Let's face it they're never going to fix it, they can't fix it.

They are hoping DX12 comes along and DX11 is all but forgotten.

Sad thing is, DX 11 is the new DX9. It will hang around for 10 years.

I don't remember the last GloFo gpu but well there are positives for overclocking

Glofo likes low temperatures.
Glofo scales with more voltage if you have low temps(for example at 60C core temps maybe you can get over 100mhz vs 70C.)
GloFo doesn't have the cold bug for ln2

Thread Starter 
One store shifted over a thousand of these cards in 24 hours. A lot of people seem happy with this card.

Sapphire 480 nitro with single 8pin. I'm sold now, for the right price...

Wow, I dont remember this many sites getting knocked offline with GTX 1080 launch.

Powercolor site is down/unresponsive, probably from hits caused by the raffle for their new DEVIL card.

LOL so it is the infamous 'cheese grater' cooler, but painted black. I like it.

Is a single 8 pin enough?

I also see DVI for all the people who were scared of being abandoned smile.gif
