Not a good thing to hear... not good at all..

The best of luck to you good sir.

How is that post relevant at all to what I mentioned above? When you have two dies of the same size and one performs much better, there must be a reason behind it. Possible explanations are Frequency deficit for 480 (1070 has roughly 40% higher core freq) , lithography and architecture (this is related to the other two). Setting the thernals aside (process plays a big role here), If a 480 with a hefty overclock cannot rival a 1070, this is bad news for future AMD SKUs. If same logic applies to big dies, it might be so that biggest Vega will not even come close to big pascal performance even if their dies are of similar size.and frequencies comparable. Is it clear now?

You were claiming that if this card doesn't perform close to a 980 TI when overclocked, it will have been a failure.

My response to you was that if this card performs like a 970 at stock. Logic would dictate that it would perform like a 970 OC when OCed. Even the best OCed 970s never reached 980Ti performance (let alone 1070 performance)

Are you sure ? about 480 ? my Rampage IV died randomly after 8 months of using, i turned off my PC, after i sleep it just didn't turned on back....

And then of course there is this:


It's amazing how often that comment has been quoted here. Last week Kyle was an AMD-hating, Nvidia-shilling laughingstock, and this week he is the definitive word on AIB overclocking. All it took was one positive comment about AMD - it's an American rehabilitation success story.

Kyle is fine in my book. He is very harsh when a company screws something up though, which AMD has been doing a lot of lately.

I have no idea who that is nor do I care. Just another random on the net making claims with no proofs.

There is no rule to that, I would actually say it is a logical fallacy. We know that GCN on 28nm gained more performance per clock compared to kepler or maxwell. If this is still the case, a 480 should see much larger gains. Btw from the reviews of apparently non throttling cards (computerbase,hardwareluxx) stock 480 is generally faster than stock 970.

This doesn't bode well for all those people who bought reference.
