XFX was putting out about the best 390x cards that could be bought. I bought four that all went over 1220mhz which wasn't very common. Both of mine now do over 1240mhz and one does 1270mhz. So XFX does a good job every now and then.

They also honored an RMA no trouble when one blew up on me. Return card did 1245mhz.

Every one of these cards also did 1750 on mem too... but not much more.

Edit: how that translates to 480's I have no idea. But seems a good sign to me.

I used XFX for a 4890 that was great, but their 7970s that weren't reference were terrible. I'll probably go Sapphire this time around. But yeah the warranty was a good thing while it lasted.

XFX still has Lifetime warranty, but the card must be bought through BestBuy. Bought one the other day for a friend as a gift.

For everyone not in the USA however, this won't matter. redface.gif

Anyone see any comparison between R9 380X and RX 480 in tessmark x64
post #3145 of 3674
Still running my XFX 6870 in my second machine till Tuesday. Finally gave up on waiting for a good 480 and bought a 1070. G3258 will also be replaced with a 4790K. First time I will ever not have an AMD GPU running in on of my machines. Anyway the XFX has been a great card, never an issue.

While i dont agree with the description you quoted, i do think its simple and appealing on the eyes. Besides the backplate it would git in just fine in any build. Which helps sell.

the 1070 is like twice as fast as the 480. About eight times as fast as the 6870. smile.gif

I think Anandtech did, but you have to go to their GPUBench results page to see it.

Edit: it is 2240 to 1698.

1070 twice as fast as a 480? By what metric, multiplication of the model numbers?

Right? I love how +50% becomes "twice as fast"

It's actually more than that: 1070/480 = 222%, is it is in fact +122%

On a more serious note, no new reviews hey?
So far only some crap reviews of 4GB versions have showed up and that's it. Rest is all waiting for being released as always, nothing in shops, nothing stock, bad AMD and it's AIBs.
