Pick up RX 480 now, or wait and see how it will do? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Not trying to hijack this thread at all but now that we know what the real world benchmarks for the 480 is now... Is it a good choice for 1440p? I have a Crossover 27Q and i am in need of a better card to push my monitor. I was going to wait for non reference cards but if it's not a good option i may go in another direction for an upgrade. Also i might be adding a 2nd monitor later down the road and i'm not sure if it will be 1080p or 1440p. I would imagine if i ran dual 1440p monitors i might be looking at crossfire?

You'd be looking at a more powerful card for 1440p, unless you are happy tweaking settings.

You can't really game across two monitors anyway btw.

I have no problem overclocking. The dual monitor setup is for an extended desktop and and the 2nd monitor will be vertical. So just gaming on 1 monitor.

Unless AIB cards can break into the high 1400s, you're likely going to want to buy a 1070 or a used 980ti, possibly a used Fury or Nano should all handle most of 1440p titles today.

I am wondering how much of a difference there will be if I wait for the non-reference cards. I mean, I am using an i5 6500 w/stock cooler and a Thermaltake V21 case. I have no plans on overclocking. I just want the bare minimum equipment wise and a quite build that will do 1080p@60. Will a reference card actually be beneficial to that build/case? Will the reference cards really be that noisy?

non ref cooling wil be alot cooler and probaby less loud, the reference cooling and power delivery isnt the best on ref model.

OCIng a non Ref RX 480 would be interesting if it can reach around 1.5Ghz+

How long do you think it will take to start to see non reference cards? Kind of worried about the power issues some reviews have reported, but also currently running off integrated graphics and really want to just upgrade (traditionally I don't upgrade that often and want a card that will last at least 3-5 years)

It looks like it's pretty much always around 80C in the reviews. I don't know how much it affects the temperature but that's something we will see with non-ref coolers. I don't know when they will release non-ref... looking for this information as well!
