yes they overclock well, on AIB. So let wait for AMD AIB to move in.

From what I have seen RX 480 AIB will offer MUCH better OC capability.

The reference cards are pulling up to 90w from the PCIe slot at stock, that is why they crash systems with mild OC's. redface.gif

Think of the reference as trying to get a R9 290/390 into a 150w envelope. Its a bad idea and it should have never been done.

Also mentioning that it's quite literally a silicon lottery like no other in recent history.

I mean, you sure would love to pay $350 for Rx480 Gaming OMG*** editijust to see it sitting at 1450Mhz, wouldn't you?

I'll be happy with 1500mhz and Fury X performance, only gaming at 1080p gonna blitz future games for a few years no doubt, especially with DX12 coming, and driver increases will be icing on my already reasonably sweet cake smile.gif

Would be acceptable. Although no I won't be paying too much for one. the clockspeed is acceptable.

a 25%+ OCed 980 about bridgs the ~25% gap it has to stock 980Ti though ...

Honestly it performs as it should at its price point.

is AIB's offer better overclocking potential then this could be a bigger steal. I still think drivers will help this car a bit more and the frame times right now are way better than I could get from my current setup. Possibly in a couple months I'll get one of these in AIB form provided they OC well. As it stands is basically better than my CF 270X's.

So much doom and gloom here it is hilarious. It is 230 USD and performs as it should.

I made a fool out of myself?

You: This card is bad value.
Me: It's same or better performance than card it competes against that costs more.

Cheapest RX 480 on newegg.com: Link ($239)
Most expensive RX 480 on newegg.com: Link ($249)

Cheapest 970 on newegg.com: Link ($264 on sale)
Most expensive 970 on newegg.com: Link
(Granted this is a rediculous one and average high price of around $330 give or take.

So yea, I'm a fool. The RX480 looks to be about equal to a 970 in DX11 give or take, and stomps it in DX12 where it competes against 980. So you get a better card for $30 cheaper at the lowest end, and on average $60-$90 cheaper. Newer card thats gonna mature and already has better performance and more features and is cheaper.

Yep, thats some crazy bad value right there.

Yea yea, the 970 is old now. So my question still is, where is this card that equals or beats the 480 in its price range? If you can't find an answer to that question, which you won't, then your comment is obviously wrong, as I pointed out.

So again, I'll be waiting redface.gif

Well hopefully the non-reference cards offer an additional 10%+ performance increase over stock cards... that's really the only way I'd see them competing with Nvidia's Maxwell cards at this point...
