rather its not on the main post yet.
I don't know, I try to post stuff around here but half the time someone is faster wink.gif
Plus it's all on r/AMD or videocardz, which are the two places to look for since Google doesn't index reviews fast enough to show them up in searches.

Pros

0dB fan mode
8GB model provides an affordable VR-compliant GPU
Beautiful RGB illumination
Decent memory overclocking
Dual BIOS
Exceptional value
Gorgeous backplate
Innovative design
Premium cooling solution
Sleek and sophisticated aesthetic
Superb performance
Thrives when using latest APIs
Wonderful build quality

Cons

GTX 1060 is less power hungry

Now that's a much better review than techpowerup's review of the asus card yesterday

Seems that they've tried a bit harder with the overclocking , included doom and used dx12 hitman

Now we wait on the powercolour versions review

you know this link just proves my point?



RX480's 32ROPs had an increased raster throughput compared to R9-380X's 32ROPs, this is mostly attributed to the clock difference.
but look at Fury X, RX480's 32ROPs easily surpasses it's raster throughput yet its still slower due to less SP and TMU count, this indicates that theres plenty of ROP headroom.

on a side note, R9-380X should have a 182.4GB/s bandwidth, the chart lists it wrong.

The results weren't that impressive on the Strix review from Techpowerup. It was lagging behind the 1060 in a considerable amount of benchmarks.

Yes that review seemed better but disappointing:

Power
custom 1060: 202W
custom 480 OC: 302W
Which is for the same performance more or less the 480 needs +50% power, ... AMD fail at performance/power all over again

Temperature
custom 1060: 63C
custom 480 OC: 75C

Even my damn 280x did 70-75C. They show even a damn Sapphire 390x Tri-X at 68C. So WTH Sapphire.

Blackops_2: yeah I know, I think the card was throttled on power or something, I would have to read it again. And they left out 1060 from some of it's charts, one has to open a 1060 review side by side when reading it.

It's a terrible review - they even tested hitman in dx11

Not everyone has windows 10, so the DX11 version is still relevant.

Temps seem alright to me - my 7970 was oc to 1075mhz (I think) and hit into the high 80s under load and my 290x ... well it's not shy of 94c most of the time

At least they tested hitman in DX12 and included doom in vulcan which is what we should be looking at more than DX11 games from 3 years ago that all the other sites tested

They said it was because it's full of bugs

They did test rise of the tomb raider in DX12

The dx12 of that game is in beta redface.gif

Will be interesting to see how the rest of the AIBs fair. The one sapphire review i read they only got to 1360mhz. Still like the card a lot.
