That wouldnt be xfx fault as much as amds if its the one issue thats been getting more attention lately. Hopefully it isnt but it could be the mb pciexpress overdraw issue.

Not sure. I'm downloading GTA and BF4 right now. I'll do a run with witcher also and see what I get. I may pick up doom this weekend just to mess around with it. I'll get some real world benchmarks done so we can see if ocing makes it gain as much ground in real performance as it does in synthetics.

I bet you raised the power limit and overclocked them too.

Nope, all stock settings

This was the case with my GTX 680.
I like you. And I thank you.

Np!

Did u buy an overclocked xfx board by any chance? If so, we have the likely culprit for your issues.

I read somewhere (may have been wccf or videocardz) that afterburner and whatever the Asus software is called would allow increased voltage over what watt mananger allows for their respective custom cards. I don't see why that would be necessary unless they oc well, or I guess are voltage hungry when oc'd.

Is this guy reputable?

14646 graphics score on firestrike
Wouldn't that be on fury level at 1425mhz?

Edit:
Has anyone tried not overclocking or even underclocking the vram to see if you can get further on the core oc?

Closer to Nano:



But if it's doing Nano levels of performance @ 1425MHz that's pretty substantial information for what AIB cards will be able to do.

Going off that chart it would be higher than fury x

Yup, you are right, went deeper into the link a second ago and saw the Graphics Score:

@ 1425MHz it is already at Fury X levels:



This is big right here.

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.

That is pretty awesome for the money! Thanks for taking one for the team.

That is with a 1000$ cpu, which seems to be a big factor in all the different results being shown.
