I just see some site claiming that and possibly mixing up VR vs non-VR again

Unlike a certain other company, Nvidia's rated boosts are ALWAYS exceeded while gaming, while the other company's is the MAX possible boost that throttles downwards when necessary.

This has been discussed already, so I will not derail the RX 480 thread. It's simply not always true.
Here is a link, you can find other reviews yourself:

Looking at DX12 comparisons between the Nano and the 480, the Nano is faster... now the $240 price point is very tempting, but I already have a Nano, so why pounce for what is pretty much a slight downgrade or sidegrade unless it's for my brother? My brother currently is on Intel HD Graphics from the Ivy Bridge era. Heck, in DX12, my Nano is competitive, within spitting distance, with a 1070 in average frame rates in Ashes, which is a title that is favorable to AMD, but not so much in DX11 comparisons... Just need some DX12 games now.

All comparisons based on stock settings.

Right now, all I play are Final Fantasy XIV and Skyrim. The only games I'm concerned about not being playable on max settings at 60 FPS at 1080p are Battlefield 1 and FIFA 17 (rumored to be using the Frostbite engine).

I love that I barely have to do anything to get the max performance out of my 1080 .. installed it, OCed it by pushing a few sliders in Afterburner and quickly checking stability and forgot about it thumb.gif

This post might as well be a bannable offense on a site named overclock.net

That actually surprised me how bad it was. I wonder what the cause is?

480 @1350MHz matching 970 @1550MHz @1080p in The Division:

Problem is reference RX 480 has poor reference cooler and won't hold max boost clock as older AMD cards do. Making the stock reference RX 480 slower in about everything. The custom cards should remedy this.

I have two of them and they have no problems holding their max boost. All you have to do is increase the power target. The stock fan profile maxes out at like 50% fan speed so there is plenty of room to increase that and improve cooling.
