Yeah thats right but those OCs currently are all throttled. Eg they are not hitting those boost clocks half the time . So i think it will be a little better than that . I was referring to Fury or just over, i think we will see that level of performance from some of the AIBs.

So earlier today I decided to go nuts and buy a 3rd RX480. They estimated around 130-150 wattage per card so i figured i could pull 3 of them off without buying a new power supply (750W). I'm too lazy to have to redo cable management so this seemed like a fun test and a time to answer a question that was never asked.

I had some crossfire/trifire issue and 3dmark only used one card. I had to go back to work so i just left the computer idling all day and hoped my house would still be there. It was surprisingly considering the cars idle at 40-45C with the room at 74F

Turned out CCC disabled crossfire so i just re-enabled it and good to go. I ran 3dmark while paying attention to wattage and temps and the max my cards drew EACH was 131 watts. I took a printscreen but lost it during the 3dmark screenshots i was taking for results. Tempatures between all the cards was between 70-80C. Mainly staying in the lower 70's surprisingly. (All stock/automatic settings)

Firestrike Ultra Results:
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/12832894
SCORE: 6,689
TL;DR: Better then 980s in SLI, 20% faster then 980s in SLI?

Pricing (Micro Center Pricing, Cheapest cards I can find of those types)
3x RX480 - $749

Games that played great no problems with Crossfire and now Trifire in 4K: GTA V, Overwatch, Hearts Of Iron IV
Now gotta install my H115 and some other goodies. Should I even try to Quadfire next? also sorry, no fire.

You reported the overall score ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

Graphics score = 7441. That's 45% faster than a single 1080 at stock, so most definitely faster than 980 SLI.

Nano is all but untouchable compared to an RX 480. However, a 1500mhz RX 480 might equal a stock Nano.

Results seem to vary and it depends which game too.

http://www.pcgameshardware.de/AMD-Radeon-Grafikkarte-255597/Specials/RX-480-Test-1199839/2/

OC results further down the page show it nipping at the fury X's heels, and that's with a nice memory OC and 1350mhz on the core.

Either way I'd be happy with Nano or Fury (non X) performance.

Hype train has officially been fixed after derailing and is chugging along waiting for AIB variants smile.gif

the official statement from one of the biggest Polish shops concerning the price of RX480 (currently more expensive than GTX 970)
Quote:
For many potential buyers surprising was the price, which differs from that suggested by AMD . Also offer , which you can find in our online shop and salons differs from that which can be found on pages and fanpage'ach AMD . This situation is dictated by the purchase prices imposed on the companies cooperating with AMD . They are much higher than the suggested retail prices. Currently, we are waiting for the official position of the company on pricing policy which adversely affects the stores , including our offer

If at 1500MHz it is at Nano/Fury levels, it doesn't need much more to make it to Fury X levels:



I think @ 1600MHz it will be able to yield another 7% performance increase to bring it to Fury X levels

Its a bit all over the place , i suspect thats due to rops and the games mix of workload etc but its going to get there in some games. ROTR for example / the division another.

That looks to be a stock RX480 too .. so figure 1200 ish boost avg clocks not the 1350 you mention. So % increase should be a lot larger than 10 % in those metrics if AIBs hit 1500 mhz avg vs ~ 1200mhz avg.

So it's the EU distributors gouging?

As per usual AMD cards are slightly more expensive here than US, and Nvidia cards are slightly cheaper than US (before taxes).
