thats second review now of the 480 Strix with underwhelming OC

ze germans got 1370 & TPU got 1355
I am not impress with asus 480 STRIX review either and isn't asus strix supposed to be highest priced AIB partner model ?

Yes, which is ironic because they are the worst in quality.

I wonder if they altered the power target ? it just seems to me either they had a great 480 that did not throttle, maybe a very good card or in an open air review bench , or the strix was throttling.

Its not the reviewers job to test power target and sustained boost clocks for an "out of the box" review i know but there was a video i watched of the XFX non ref 480 throttling its 1328 boost down to 1266 mhz until they upped the power target to about 20% i think it was and then it held its 1328 boost in the Witcher3 . That game seems to bring out the throttling well .

You can also up the power target on reference too , however the aibs are better at cooling and supplying the power via 8 pin. Do we know if they played with the power target at techpower up ? If they didn't then i kind of would expect this result , especially with variability in review samples / gpu asics etc.

"Overclocking results listed in this section are achieved with the default fan and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. We choose this approach as it is the most realistic scenario for most users."

Hmm doesnt seem like they pushed it at all .. no extra voltage ? You buy a strix and don't up power target - fans or voltage .. weak attempt at overclocking in my opinion.

Give me 80% fans, full voltage, max power target .. then lets see 1400+ clocks more like it.

The Nitro+ OC's boost clock (1342MHz) is already close enough to the OC results that we've seen so far.
Now fair enough, I'm not saying that they're the MAX achievable overclocks (nowhere near that), depends on
individual chips, but surely the Nitro has at least another 50-60MHz that can be squeezed out of it.

Oh, ye of little faith rolleyes.gif

And if I'm wrong... well... then I'll be wrong. Not gonna lose any sleep over it.

The techpowerup review of the strix 480 overclocking one is a pretty weak attempt at overclocking IMHO , from what i can see no PT increase, no voltages increases, no fan rpm increases.

I don't like what i'm seeing on the quality side of the strix howwever . That heatpipe sitting on the gpu like that is just terrible however , and no ram cooling etc .. i would pass the strix by looking at that.

That techpowerup review , they do the tomb raider test in DX12 but not hitman because they say its full of bugs ? And where is doom ?

hmmm , waiting on reviews off the powercolour devil version - £249.99 on overclockers uk. Says the boost is 1330mhz , interested in how that will overclock

Meanwhile the developers of tomb raider said that the dx12 version is still on beta...

Yeah , if you read the overclocking method they used its amazing the card did not perform worse than default too . Force it to use more power and not increase power target doh.gif ... amazing it didn't throttle more. Hitman full of bugs ? first i have heardof it. Guru3D surprised me too, testing doom in openGl still . You can see some real let-downs in the reviews at present.

germans increased PT because they actually list core clock results with and without PT

they got 15 Mhz more than TPU
