AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 214

post #2131 of 3674
Is there any review that specifically tested this thing's tessellation performance?

Does the 970 have HDMI 2.0b, or Display Port 1.3, or offer HDCP2.2 support..?

Nobody cares about old tech, (even if it is faster in games), when new tech comes out. If building a Home Entertainment system, the RX480 is the only way to go... 

 

 

One would save ZERO, if they went with a GTX970, because it doesn't do as much and is restricted by being older.

 

 

 

 

 

Kinda embarrassing, that you and Slowmo don't understand why people herald the 480.

Your whole post is hilarious because you dont understand that the "old tech" is just as efficient as AMDs "new tech", now cost less in UK and performs the same


But keep on supporting the company that said RX 480 Crossfire would beat 1080 yet only match GTX 1070.
Falls in line with their Fury X marketing where they presented slides that show Fury X to be 20-30% faster than 980Ti. And an overclockers dream.

LOL

tessellation is now at Maxwell Level or so

Why should we care about the GTX 970 costing less in the UK when there are 170+ countries in this world? lachen.gif

You keep supporting the company that sells 300 mm2 midrange chips for 600 USD. lachen.gif

The 970 is done, it's all but officially announced EOL and is anywhere from 9 -30% slower in dx12. Being found for cheaper than a 480 was inevitable really.

I don't know if it was already asked but, has anyone have a 4gb model? Because i've read somewhere that reviewers have 2 bios so they can try the card with both 8 and 4gb.
Now of course you cannot "disable" a memory module, because you will cut the bus, but, i've found the 8gb memory modules: Samsung K4G80325FB-HC025.

That 25 at the end is the speed, so 0.25ns 8000Mhz, and they are rated at 1.5v.

On Samsung's datasheet there is another model working at 1.5v as well and it's the K4G41325FC-HC28. That 28 now stands for 0.28ns 7000mhz, and the interesting thing is that 7000Mhz are rated for 1.55v, so even higher power draw, and only in this model, because on the 8gb that 7mhz is still rated 1.5v.

It would be nice to have an inspection of the card, because there might be a chance that all cards are the same with a bios tweak (i don't know how, still, it's a chance, correct me if i'm wrong) so potentially, we could save some money.

I hope someone have the 4gb model and can check the memory modules, visually or with MemoryInfo.

Here is the datasheet for Samsung's GDDR5 modules: http://www.samsung.com/us/samsungsemiconductor/pdfs/PSG2015_1H_HR_singles.pdf

Here is the VRAM image on the PCB:

Anandtech did in their preview. It ranged from the same to about 5% slower, depending on the title, so it was running at 7GHz. It wasn't clear whether they used the BIOS or actually had a 4GB card though.

Since the core clock should be the same across both model, the 8gb draws more power like we can se here

So, again, in theory, if i'm right and those memory modules use 1.55v, they should draw more power and the 4gb model should use more power as well.
