But not sure how much longer this party will continue, my thinking is AMD didn't had much of 4Gb Gddr5 available to them and they wanted to reach that 199USD price.
Now they must have got some qty which now etailers will receive and no more luck for us rolleyes.gif

Im thinking it was a last minute descision to fill the price gap between 470 and 480.

d3dglvramtest. There are actually many more out there. This is one I found in a YouTube video a few days ago. Here is the zip for you to give it a try directly below. What it is designed to do is fill the memory just past 4 GB. It will not fill the entire 8 GB of memory, but it passes the 4 GB barrier without any trouble. Just use GPU-Z in conjunction to confirm the memory is filled past 4 GB (4096 MB), and, if you have no BSOD or other craziness going on, you are golden.

Removed, pulled the plug on the project (EMBD).

Let AMD to fix their own *hit. If they can, that is.

Recommended workflow:

- Download the most recent version of Display Driver Uninstaller
- Clear the remainings of the old display driver with DDU and reboot.
- Re-install the newest Crimson Display driver and reboot.
- Deploy EMBD and make the changes.

The most important thing is that no previous display driver entries are left behind.

Also if you plan to use CrossFire (in any form), CrossFire MUST BE disengaged prior deploying EMBD. After EMBD has been deployed, you may re-engage CrossFire. It is also recommended that the system is rebooted after each time any changes are made to the drivers or to the configuration (i.e Enable / Disable CrossFire).

EMBD V1.1

Ok, +rep, and will try to see if the mobo can survive 2x 250W RX480 " Ultra"

@The Stilt are there any other changes made?

Anything specific in mind? It was completely rewritten, however the functionality is exactly the same. I could add clock and voltage controls too, but I feel it is pretty futile as they are already available in Wattman.

I can't think of anything right off that would be necessary. I was more curious as to if anything else had been updated/changed other than the ability to modify multiple cards.

Im guessing it will say "No Ellesmere cards found" if you dont remove the driver first?
post #300 of 3323
@The Stilt now that I'm thinking about it, there was a rumor a couple weeks ago that Apple has the full Polaris 10 die, and the 480 is actually a cut down version. Is there any way to investigate this (if true) and see if it was done at the hardware level or via bios?
