Well, default 290's clock is 947MHz. Mine runs @1125 24/7

Only Hawaii and Fiji are bad clockers rly.

Sandys maybe but not even an i3. Nubs will be the ones who will pair these things to older systems simply because they are affordable.

Heck, i would not even recommend pairing these gpus with an A10. lol

Problem is, a lot of people do pair these GPU's with i3's and even A10's.

Like I said, noobs who can't decipher benchmark reviews. Can't even recommend an i3 with a 1060.

Well, at least the 1060 owners will not have this issue . . .

Just checked 480 STRIX review. Actual 3D performance gained from overclocking is 3.0%. LOL

I can only facepalm at fanboys who kept saying how reference 480 is throttling and how custom will make night and day difference, in reality, reference 480 running stock VS STRIX 480 overclocked to the max has only 5.8% difference, according to TPU review. that's pathetic.

ASUS card is throttling too if you didn't notice. It's running below 1266MHz most of the time. Power Targer needs to be raised

Power Target was raised in this benchmark if I'm reading it correctly:

https://www.computerbase.de/2016-07/asus-radeon-rx-480-strix-test/2/

As the card does not throttle in their "MAX" category.
