But for any other makes very little sense.
Powerdraw and Powerdistribution are two veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery different things. 480 has no issues with power draw. It haD issues with power distribution.
The current state of the situation is as follows: There is no longer a situation, everything is resolved with the last AMD drivers.
Correct, two different things, but AMD's TDP (which is different from nvidia's TDP) represents the max Watts drawn from the card under load, which was 150W for the 480, it wasn't respected, cause in some benchmark the card reached ~180W, so power draw isn't really good, on the other hand yes, the problem wasn't the draw, but the distribution, and despite the fix, several tests showed that the card is still at pciex limit, surpassing the standard max current drawable wich is 5.5A but in some games it still reaches ~6A. Surely better but still not good, and there's nothing amd can do about it now, so let's wait AIBs and a possible refresh later.
