I think your confused with Nvidia, Havnt seen any improvements on my old 780ti and 980ti is looking the same as well. So much stuff still broken in the driver and where is the promised full DX12 support.

Guess it's just a freesync thing then I've seen people saying it been over 6 months and it's still not working right. I'm not a fanboy I sold my 970 and got my RX 480s hands down nvidia drivers were better settings always opened and the community is far more helpful and engaged sorry this is my opinion but I'm staying team red just hope drivers and support get better.

So the wait for a 4GB 580 BIOS just became even harder, ha! wheee.gif

I don't mean for my post here to sound offensive to you, but... most people that buy video cards today won't be buying 4GB cards anymore. Espically buying a new card in 2017. That's probably why you're not finding a bios for your 4GB card anywhere yet. Just my thinking. I even have the 8GB version of my 290X card myself. And yes it's important, quite a few AAA titles in 2016/2017 want 5-7 GB of gpu ram, even at 1080p.

After having read the last few pages:

On my end I've also had lower performance (few FPS drop in firestrike) using the MSI RX 580 Gaming X (non-+) 1393/2025 on my MSI RX 480 Gaming X (both 8GB versions).
Upon checking for details using PolarisBiosEditor what I saw is that, despite having an higher TDP limit on the RX 580 bios, both TDC and Power Limit are lower.

Using a few images from GamersNexus and Overclockers, and roughly comparing the cards they do seem to be using the same PCB and components.

I have been able to play DOOM at 4k, modern CoDs also at 4k, Witcher 3 at 1440p (limited by clockspeed by a mile), Wolfenstein TNO at 4k again, and even the infamous Dishonored 2 at 1800p-900p random dynamic res. I hardly play those AAA games you speak of, Ghost recon wildlands is the one that eats vram maybe?

A game that used more than 4GB of vram is badly made period. You'll need to hammer shaders to core-crippling levels or run uncompressed textures that offer no visual quality increase. I know having 8GB is nice, but not worth the extreme price premium in my region, even less when this card is getting thrown out of the window once vega arrives.

Considering the new memory as cache features in vega and intelligent resource swapping I half expect AMD to still offer a 4GB model of it lol

I've flashed my xfx rx480 RS 8GB with the xfx rx580 bios. I've noticed that the bios at power limit +25% is exactly the same as the original bios at 0% power limit. The strange thing about this bios is that I can run my gpu at 1460 mhz (+50) until it gets to the mid 80s celcius then locks up. I even tried upping the highest p state to the highest voltage possible in wattman but still crashed eventually. One thing I did notice tho is I can crank the memory speed right up on this bios and it doesn't seem to cause stability issues.

That's only if you use the "hyper/Ultra/Mega/Over 9000" texture settings. Mirrors Edge Catalyst for instance I couldn't tell a difference between high and Hyper textures. Maybe if I was pixel peeping I could but that's not gameplay. When you don't use obnoxious placebo texture settings it's fairly easy to be under 4gb Vram @ 1080p.

And.. all these titles.. you say "I've been able to play XXXX" ... you're probably not at 100% maximum ultra settings with every possible option switched on/to max. For one.. that's probably why your vram usage is low, and two.. a single RX 480 has no hope of running these new games maxed out @ 4K, even the newest nvidia cards can't hold 60 FPS minimum figures in any game that exists @ 4K with everything maxed out, even with the fastest intel chips. Not single-card anyway.

That's up to you and personal preferences. -ME- personally.. if I can't run a game 100% maxed out everywhere.. I usually won't bother and wait until I can get a better GPU later.
