May I ask what is non compilant?

If I understand what it mean then when you power up a gpu the 6/8 pin conector and the pci-e must never work together as one large poll of watt to be used for the gpu as it see fit?

thats EXACTLY what this means:

its a firmware issue, the bios will regulate what power gets used where. drivers can help by imposing power limits and is easier to get out into the wild. but a new bios would solve the issue.

the vrms are well built - they're better than the ones on my 980ti - which draws alot more power.

ok nice now I feel that I know more english XDDD. Now using that information and the one of buildzoid about the 3 ground and the need of the middle pin to be used as an ID for the 6 pin then since the gpu can´t identify the 6pin conector as that (a 6pin conector) would that make the gpu offset the power to the pci-e? This is only base of the idead that the data that buildzoid found is correct. I dont know a lot about that.

first thing - the card MUST recognize there is a pin there or it will run at a reduced speed OR not power up at all. you can test that yourself by disconnecting the plugs on any/your graphics card and see what (doesn't) happen when you boot wink.gif

buildzoid is completely misinformed- a nice way of saying WRONG. smile.gif

Go to the 54 mnute mark to see the that:

3 of the 6 pin grounds are together, no center sense pin isolated - the top 3 VRMs run to the 6 pin; the bottom 3 VRMs run to the PCI-e fingers. They are on separate circuits and not connected, this is the issue.

Wow, the issue is worse than I imagined. I knew something was wrong, but did not expect the board to be flawed. So I was right with flawed design. Still I don't get why AMD did such a mistake.

If you don't like the message, kill the messenger? RIGHT?!


Or maybe you have some serious case of paranoia, my friend!

Yeah, thank you. I gave mark_thaddeus a +REP, becaus this was so important to me. Please provide a link directly next time. Though I am thankful to you too!

It's not a firmware issue if AMD did the hardware wiring on the PCB wrong! All they can potentially do is to limit the card downwards. The issue is bigger than you think. The RX480 reference needs a complete revision overhaul.

Please stop with this bull! I would be equally on the fence if it were another vendor. God, if the issue came from Nvidia, the gates of hell would open and the worst nightmares flooded onto the internet. There is no negative influence except hardware enthusiasts are afraid their expensive components could be damaged. In order to avoid that, we all search for pieces of the truth. That's all there is to it!

AMD deserves this backlash. Such mistakes should never ever happen.

any claim as far as AMD wiring the card wrong is complete rubbish. wink.gif

One watt per second would be equivalent to "one joule per second per second" which implies a curve. He was not talking about a curve so this is irrelevant.

Ugh, stupid wrong word in there. Replace the first mention of Joules with Watt...

You said watts didn't have a time dimension, which it does by definition.

lol if this came from nVidia it'd be an 80/20 split of opinions, and guess which side is gonna win? wink.gif

Re bold part: lachen.gif

One of the leading arguments team green put forward was "well this card is marketed towards those on a budget who would be running cheap $50 motherboards, so obviously your $300 motherboard not getting damaged doesn't mean jack squat". So no, can't have your cake and eat it too.

Here again:
https://www.twitch.tv/buildzoid/v/75850933

After the whole pre-story, it starts right before 54 minutes in. By voltmeter the user measures the PCB for his voltage mod.

He finds out it is a 50:50 split on the board itselff or PCI-Express-SLOT and PCIe-6pin. This explains why the card behaves like it does in tests. Look for yourself.

By marketshare: Yes
By reality: No

Everyone would be on the fence if it is proven. But since the AMD fans are way to used shouting garbage all day long, many would try to stay neutral at first. Since AMD is the "underdog" - lots of sites try the cruising gear tone to not sound mean.

Even a budget build can be worth several hundrets. CPU, Mainboard, PSU, SSD, RAM and whatever could be affected. If it were only the GPU, easy case. Once you mess with the whole system it is no joke anymore. Especially since the card is in the mainstream segment, the issue becomes even more devastating.

The RX480 should never ever behave like it does. Someone really messed up here.
