AMD RX 480 Review Thread - Page 94

post #931 of 3674

Might have to pull out my AC twin turbo 2s and try them on my 480s eventually.

One of GCN 1.2's improvements was in its firestrike score. In fact, the 380X blew away the 280X in that benchmark even though it's overall slower.



I don't know if putting too much stock in the firestrike score is a good idea.

google translate from that OC link

Variations overclockability Radeon RX480 we do not know, and based on the 4 GPU that is in us (2 from AMD, 2 from PowerColor), only 1 GPU capable of running at 1.4GHz clock. The rest varies between 1.33-1.35Ghz. As an additional note of our innate cooler version of reference seem difficult to withstand temperatures as improved voltage VGA.

We will continue testing the complete OC when we already know the characteristics of AMD RX480 clocked her better, which contains:

Game Tests in a state overclock
Testing Temperature and Power when OC
OC Radeon Wattman Guide for software

Look forward to the next OC test here!

It'd be good if people actually waited until after the AIB cards are released before writing the new 480 off completely.  I think some people you just cant please.  AMD has released a card today that is without doubt the best performing for how much it costs.  So what if it doesnt beat NV offerings, its actually quite affordable to most people.  Even if AMD gave this gpu away people would moan.  How can you possibly expect AMD to magically come up with a world beating graphics card and then sell it for next to nothing? If they were capable of such things they would be dominating the market without competition.

 

In RL some people dont have a spare £600 sat around for a GTX 1080 all the time, and if your one of those people its easy to rip on others for having to settle for less.  Im just interested and hopng the AIB 480s come out and then they overclock quite well in the hope that it will be a really good card for good money.

Patience is a rare commodity in todays world.
I wait for custom cards.

The only thing that saved this card is the price. As far as performance and power, the most pessimistic performance and power prediction and overclockability expectations were met. Look for the worst prediction as far as performance and power go, and you will see how those were the most accurate prediction.

I blame mahigan for gettings peoples expectations so high for this card.

E.g. it may take a RX 480 at 1500mhz to equal a 390/290 at 1200mhz. In which case, the card is basically a failure imo. It needed to be faster than the 390/290, but it isn't, probably because it has less ROPs and TMUs.

Dunno what benchies you are reading but this is just wrong.

At 1500Mhz OC on air it will blow away a 290 overclocked to the max on air. When I say, 'to the max' I mean what you can generally achieve using just AB.

Also, power draw will be drastically lower for the 480 at 1500 compared to a 290/390 at 1200 for sure.

people giving the "before release expectations" too much fault.

There is no need for excuses if a card simply isn't that great.

Objectively speaking, without any previous rumors, leaks and hopes go, the card isn't what one would expect in 2016 on a much more efficient node.

The reality lies in the middle. This product should be viewed for what it is. Neither expectations that are way too high (on par with GTX 1080) nor people saying it will be slower than a GT 210 Performance Edition HDMI should have a real effect on what it is.

In all honestly everyone that knows a tad about moving forwards knows that there is a lot of ... lets call it missed potential with the RX480 from a consumer standpoint.

I haven't seen Mahigan in ages, and not in any of the recent (~1 month old) 480 threads, so I'm not sure you can pin the blame on him.

If I had to point a finger, it would all the rumor sites with their "leaks", and people themselves for getting overhyped.

A 1500 480 will be a few % faster than a stock 980, so I dunno if I would call that blowing away a max OC 290.
