AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 330

post #3291 of 3674
Got my RX 480 on the newest 16.7.3 driver, +5% core in WattMan, which is about 1325-1330Mhz, and its stable. Apparently wattman opnly adjusts by 5% increments now when it was 0.5%, whats up with that?

The newest driver doesn't seem to hot, might wanna try with 16.7.2: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/previous/detail?os=Windows%2010%20-%2064&rev=16.7.2

Reduce power target by 25%, reduce performance by 5%. Undervolt and it's free power savings.

480 pushed way out of its comfort zone. GPU Boost 3.0 keeps NVIDIA's GPU's at the comfort zone at all times.

polaris10 chip itself seems to be meant as a 200W chip.

and furthermore, the VRM are scorching hot, which indicates that they're being stressed out.
i mean, both RX480 and GTX1060 uses 6phase VRM, yet RX480 is a lot more power hungry.

I'm running 16.7.3 (16.30.2311) installed onto a fresh install of windows 10 with my XFX RX480 Core 8GB and I don't have any crashing problems or restrictions on ram clocks.. I'm not sure about the percentage based frequency increases as I've just typed in the numbers for mine manually.

I have noticed that it doesn't apply the custom voltage setting on boot, it applies the default until you change it in wattman and click apply. GTAV does seem to run a lot smoother on this new driver than it did before.

I settled with a MSI 1060 gaming at the end.

I do not care for DX12 and wanted a cool and power saving card.

local prices and availability wasn't in AMD's favor either. 4GB 480 not in sight. Any reference 8GB 480 = 2300 unit price. MSI 1060 gaming = 2500-2600

Good luck to whoever that's still waiting

I was at least able to get a nitro 470 ordered for 179$. Guess I'll just skip the aib 480 altogether and rock the 470 until vega comes along. Then it'll make a great 1080 minecraft PC for my daughter

i was supposed to be waiting for 4GB 480, but now that i see 470 being not much slower, now i'm waiting for 470 to save a few bucks. biggrin.gif
can't really blame myself for wanting to save some money though, those ridiculous price gouging pushes it above my ideal budget.

It's obvious that Polaris gets incredibly efficient at the lower ends and proves my theory about the RX 480 being stretched out of its intended performance bracket, and goes in line with what Raja said in that PCPer interview, that Polaris focus was on P11.

Well, your talks are really different from the reality.
RX 470 is a little more efficient than RX 480 but not so much and the 2.8X cake is a lie. The 470 is not even 2X but around 1.7-1.9X on games like Ryse and TW3 vs a 270X.
2.8X is 1060 territory and we're very far from it.

Worst, your Polaris 11 "incredbly power efficient" is a joke too.
RX460 beats 750Ti by a little in performance and have almost the same power efficiency. GM107 (28nm HP) is a Q1 2014 chip, P11 (14nm FF LPP) is almost Q3 2016.

I don't know what happen at AMD but Polaris is indeed a big failure, barely able to face the old Maxwell arch from nVidia, a total waste.
nVidia got a free highway regarding laptops (GP107 will slaugther this thing) thanks to not having a real competitor again.

And this, (BF4 and TW3)

Waow. Around the same power consumption, with a 2X bigger die in size, more than 2X trannies and still around 2.2X performance, It's quite shocking.
AMD is late, really late...

AMD said 1.7x more power efficient.

2.8x was for VR or something.
