b) GPU Boost 3.0 = auto overclocking if thermals/power allow
c) suffers even more than Maxwell in its absolute inability to voltage scale worth a damn on air/water (and even LN2 apparently)

Honestly, nVidia could've just clocked the 1080 at 1600 and still have it end up about 25% faster than 980 Ti, then that 2100 overclock would suddenly start looking a lot more appealing.

Yeah reality is though a 980 ti AIB or titan x are faster than 1070 ref / aib , and not far behind 1080 (max ocs). That might change in time with NVs lack of focus on Maxwell drivers but i suspect they will need to treat maxwell owners better than keplar owners with Dx12 / vulkan performance where it is for NV.

Owning maxwell now it just feels like i need to upgrade to something that's going to gain in performance , not go backwards or get no gains relative to the competition. 1080 is a sidegrade at best. Really need Vega or the next NV chips .

I mean, it's much better to just take a "wait and see" approach without making grand predictions IMHO.

There's an important difference between prediction and speculation. I too am doubtful that we will see 1500MHz+ AIB 480's on the reg but its not impossible. Given the reference card's performance we have seen thus far 1400MHz seems to be almost a given for AIB's but how much more can they get out of it? 1450? 1500? Should find out soon enough...

HAHA oh man you got him so good. The RX480 power draw was so high that I don't even have one and it destroyed my computer.

I clicked on a Google image of a reference 480 and my motherboard caught on fire! You've been warned, stay away from this thing!

pcie power draw
never talks about what really matters

Why are some websites, like Anandtec forums and this one, turning a blind eye to posts stating it as a fact that the 1060 is faster than 480. At least OC makes that easy to do as they can just be posted as fact in the rumor section. Those types of posts were removed rather conveniently in retrospect to the Polaris launch (i wonder if it will mysteriously be changed now). Where could this evidence possibly be considering NV hasnt launched the card. Why the double standards? I havent seen any evidence that is the case, maybe it isnt, but convincing as mainy people of it as possible before launch would sure be a great benefit to them.

Anyway, just some general muzings about something i found interesting. tongue.gif

The RX480 does look pretty good though. NV may not have anything to battle it until a lot of time has passed and what about the AIB cards. biggrin.gif

Correct me if I wrong, but I believe 1060 is still no where to see, no where to test, and no where to know if perf gain over rx 480 is real. And we still don't even know on dx12.

There is nothing to say for website reviewers, as they still don't have the card. They are not here to buzz, but to add real information to the table.

Giving false hope or wrong hope to the people is something that (I believe) we don't need on OC.net.

We have plenty of that already.

1060 wil be tested and probably better than rx 480 when it's released. It will also probably be more expensive as usual. Nothing new. But for the moment, RX 480 is alone on the market, has no more power consumption problem, and has its price lowering everyday (saw 225€ in France for 8go model). It's its time to shine on the market.

there are some 1060 runs on aots on high preset using low settings(guru3d tactics to shill) even using them its behind a 480
