AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 44

post #431 of 3674
Not that concerned with power consumption as long as i can clock it high and get 980+ performance. Will be waiting to see. There is also the fact that we will see driver improvements if previous iterations of GCN have taught us anything. I'd probably better off going with a 480 rather than a 980. I have a friend with a 980 with block willing to let it go 275$ right now though..

Right now the 980 is a no brainer but i did this between the 780 and 290x and look where that got me..gonna hold out until AIB get throttling under control and we see consistent OCing results.

The RX 480 is VERY close to GTX 970 performance and power consumption. Especially when you consider the overclock headroom of Maxwell. Think about that for a minute.

GTX 970 released in 2014 on 28nm.
RX 480 released in 2016 on 14nm.

This is BAD. Compare it to Pascal's efficiency and it's very clear how far behind AMD is. You get more Vram and hopefully save a few bucks but to the unbiased consumer this cannot be considered a truly successful launch.

I'm aware. smile.gif What i meant was that Pascal is more or less a shrink of Maxwell, and most of it's efficiency gains come from the new process. It looks like the same is true for Polaris, so it obviosly gains efficiency from 14nmFF, but AMD hasn't improved relative to Nvidia. They've both just gained from the new process, AMD maybe slightly more because Polaris had a few more changes compared to Pascal.

Vola and Vega were obviously both delayed and Polaris and Pascal were used to bridge the gap.

GCN is a more complicated architecture, its 1/2 DP capabilities are built in and cannot be removed like with NVidia's CUDA cores. NVidia's mainstream cards only have 1/32 DP ratio and result in a much more efficient card. Big pascal will have all the DP units so the final perf/w should be a lot closer.

The 1/2 DP is not true for Fury/Tonga/Polaris.

the 300 EUR 480 is just first day

it will settle to 280+, maybe 270 EUR after more stock comes in

I don't think so.

The 970 is tapped out though, it is all but officially announced EOL.

Even the 4gb 480 is 0.5gb better than the 970 biggrin.gif

depends where you live where I am the 980 is $600 vs $350 8GB 480.

Check out these benchmarks

http://www.pcgameshardware.de/AMD-Radeon-Grafikkarte-255597/Specials/RX-480-Test-1199839/2/

scroll down page for OC results.

1350mhz 480 pretty close to Hercules 980 1380mhz (depending on game)

Matches fury X.
