Really the card never pulls under 150w at load so it would obviously be out of spec on pcie slot or 6pin to begin with. Really really makes no sense to not have 8pin

Somewhat of a B.S. excuse by AMD.

Most reviewers don't even bother to test for this kind of thing. Most don't have the equipment or knowledge to.

what the heck is that gap doing between the bracket and the shroud?
post #16 of 1129
Well at least there doesn't seem to be an issue with only 6.5gb of the 8gb being utilized, so that's a plus so far.

According to the review on Techspot, the RX 480 draws just as much power as a 970...I don't know about all 970's but mine has a 6 pin and 8 pin.
Quote:

So here we see when playing The Witcher 3 that the RX 480 consumed the same amount of power as the GTX 970 and only slightly less than the GTX 1070. It also used slightly more than the R9 380 and quite a bit more than the GTX 960. I'm not sure how I feel about this result.


Interestingly, in Just Cause 3 the RX 480 consumed more power than the GTX 1070 and slightly less than the GTX 970. Given that it was on average 34% slower than the GTX 1070, the fact that it uses a similar level of power is disappointing.

With peak loads up to 155 watts (!) Is at risk, although due to the short intervals, the hardware is not directly






Could be a BIOS or WattMan issue or something wrong with their testing equipment at Tom's Hardware.

We skipped long-term overclocking and overvolting tests, since the Radeon RX 480’s power consumption through the PCIe slot jumped to an average of 100W, peaking at 200W. We just didn’t want to do that to our test platform.

lol wait for premium cards
post #20 of 1129
Someone at AMD didn't do their homework. This card should've had an 8 pin or 6+6 pin power connector(s).
