Actually, there have been one or two reviews showing clock speed drops going from 1080 > 1440 > 4k being ~ 40-60mhz. This issue is likely to be remedied with AIB cards, unfortunate for the reference 480, but that heatsink reminds me of taking apart pentium 3 rigs redface.gif

Let's hope that this will give AMD the long needed breathing room and the much needed R&D money

Probably will start going on sale by the end of next week, if not the week after...

I don't have a problem with HardOCP, never did. From my understanding they were originally called out for being AMD fanboys, and now are considered NVIDIA fanboys. So honestly, I don't really care what other people's opinions are. Because regardless of whether they are pro-AMD or pro-NVIDIA it seems they are criticized.

Who cares about personal feelings toward Kyle really? Unless he is flat out lying the fact remains that he was told to expect 1480-1600MHz OC's from the AIB cards which actually lines up with the numerous rumors we have had for a while that stated the same. Its interesting that the response to this news is to attack AMD fans as hypocrites for quoting Kyle all of the sudden rather than dealing with the substance of his reporting. A 1600MHz 480 with custom PCB, high end cooling, and dual power connectors should perform well beyond an OC 980 and very near (if not more than) a Fury X for less than $300 in all likelihood. I get that the power efficiency will plummet from the already underwhelming level of the reference card but that doesn't really matter to most people who just want performance (I bought two 580 Lightning's which were ridiculous with efficiency). Anybody trying to spin this as no big deal are fooling themselves. Fury X performance out of a $300 card with beefy cooling and PCB would easily be a better deal than a 1070 at $450 in terms of p/p though, as stated, Pascal simply kicks Polaris' ass in efficiency no question. Of course if you need 1070 performance the 480 is not your card anyway but if you can only spend up to $300 a 1600MHz 480 would bring unprecedented performance to that price bracket, just as the referecnce card brings to the $200 price bracket (regardless of what the usual suspects would have you believe, hilariously recommending EOL cards that are still no where near $200 and slower)...

EDIT - Admittedly I did forget the silicon lottery comment so we will have to see how likely/unlikely getting these 1600MHz cards ends up being but the silicon lottery has been a thing for as long as their have been computer chips (look at the 1080 FTW's that can't even manage 2GHz)...

PowerColor Radeon RX 480 DEVIL

Fully custom PCB, triple-fan design and 8-pin power connector is what PowerColor team is currently working on.

A friend who took this spy picture told us that PowerColor RX 480 DEVIL will overclock over 1.4 GHz, however the exact specs are not yet finalized.

I'm getting whichever AIB 480 is best as soon as they are out to replace my 270X. For the way I use my studio PC the reference would be just fine (and still a huge upgrade) but there's no reason not to go AIB considering how much more fun they are going to be to OC and bench! I can't wait to see the 1600MHz 480 numbers...

Is the board going to be exposed like that in the retail model? I can see myself slicing my hands on that.
