It would only make sense to test an amd gpu on and amd cpu no?

that's what the author of the article wrote in the comment

I beg you, don't ask for the possibility of adding FX-6300 or FX-8300, we all know what results it would have with RX480

Lol respect for a guy who has balls to call a spade a spade


point 2. " the test includes the newest RoTR and Hitman patches "

meanwhile ppl who ignore these results as "cherry picked" talk aots in 1060 thread all the friggin time lachen.gif

that's just hypocritical.

Well, you could throw out all of the outliers for both cards.

I've been looking for RX 480 owners to run benchmarks with as there isn't many overclocked gaming benchmarks going around.

I have gtav, doom, csgo, dota, witcher 3, bf4, aots, forza. Just don't know how to go about getting average frames. I also have dual 1600x900 monitors, fx-8300@4.5ghz, and 16gigs ddr3-1600 ram, for comparison purposes.

Edit:
I realize and cpus blow, but it would make sense to do a benchmark utilizing at least a 8320/8350 seeing as a lot of gamers are still on the am3 platform.

AMD's drivers in general is seriously bad in DX11, to the point that in CPU bound games they're as much as one tier slower than Nvidia.
this is because AMD's DX11 driver overhead is massive, massive enough that the CPU chokes on it.
This has nothing to do with drivers but with HW architecture, duh.

Who has an AMD CPU, do yourself a favor and buy a 2nd hand Ivy Bridge or better. Unless you are waiting and hoping for Zen to save you.

I thought the 480 was supposed to have HW to address that. Could drivers improve it now that it's been added?

AMD drivers usually increase performance of cards over time as they tweak god knows what, probably the mistakes of DX11 game devs and trying to remove them on driver level.
The whole high vs low level APIs and AMD vs NV in those has been explained numerous times over the years. Just search what ever article about it you find reputable.

I understand the whole deal in years past, but th 480 which wasn't around then was supposed to address this via hardware. So info from years past is of no use.
