AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 88

post #871 of 3674
I pretty much knew this would happen so I ignored all the hype.

People were saying total lies like it would OC to 1500mhz, be faster than a 980ti, be faster than a 1070, be faster than a Fury X and all that..

Friends don't let friends read WCCFtech.

In reality, it's not even faster than the 390, let alone the 290, though it does use less power.

Personally, I think going with only 32 ROPs and less texture units than the 290 is why it underperforms.

I'm waiting for Vega, but, if Vega doesn't have at least 96 ROPs (preferably 128) and doesn't perform twice as fast as the 290 (which I had two of before), then I hate to say it, but my money will go to Nvidia. And I've used AMD cards only since 2008.

Just another example of a card being hyped up for months and dumb people believing it. Just goes to show that until a card releases and the reviews show up, we really don't know anything. I, however, expected this to happen and figured the card would be less powerful than older ones.

I think the card was released within what was expected and the early leakers were half right. It does perform near 980 levels in DX12, and it does perform near 970 levels in DX 11.

200 USD that compete with a card that use to be 450 to 500 a year ago? Ain't bad
post #874 of 3674
https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/4qfwd4/rx480_fails_pcie_specification/

Apparently RX480 fails PCI-E specification , pulls way to much power from motherboards.

Power delivery is out of ATX spec. This forces the card to attempt to draw more from the motherboard than the motherboard may be rated for. This is fine in reviewers test systems which have high quality motherboards and PSUs that can safely exceed ATX spec. But your typical Best Buy customer won't have this. Best case, the card under performs due to less power. Worst case (and this will be as rare as being stuck by lightning), components get damaged.

Kinda scary if your mobo get fried after using for couple of months thinking.gif

By that logic a 1070 is a steal too. Faster than a Titan X for less than half the price! rolleyes.gif

I think we should wait until the the aftermarket boards with more power pins come out and the drivers get updated (seeing how not all reviewers had the same driver) before the performance conclusion of the rx480 is made.
