My xfx card came with a limit of +20% pwrlimit instead of the +50% every other rx480 seems to have, I was able to unlock that to +50% (or change any other thing I want) but not voltage.
Guess I should have bought the 1060 after all, 7850 was the best overclocker I ever had, rx480 the worst.

Even if you change the TDC setting to 124 in your custom flash and do a reset in Wattman so it re-reads the bios limits? I don't want to do some testing as I'm still waiting to RMA my card. But I have a 2nd card coming on the 23rd... What if you use all the powertune/powerplay settings from the unlocked air bios?

I know how to unbrick my card. Is there any atiflash version which works in DOS mode for the RX 480?

Hello!
Excuse me for being absent for the last year. Basically, I've had nothing new to say to community and did no new research on AMD cards.
Recently I've got a new RX470 card, so I've updated cuinfo tool to version 1.7 to support these new cards.

Still, I don't think it would be of any real use. Price difference between RX470 4GB vs RX480 4GB is very minor, but hardware difference could be significant.
For example, my Sapphire Nitro RX470 card lacks one VRM phase if compared to the same RX480 card.
BTW, cuinfo data shows the chip's shader count to be hard-locked on my RX470.

This tool can be used to read information about active and disabled CU units in Hawaii, Tonga, Fiji and Ellesmere.
Tool is based on public sources with some amount of guess-work. Any data interpretations are not official.

Memory Info tool is still required to run cuinfo.

CUinfo v1.7:

Download it and unzip into Memory info's folder. This tool uses DLLs from Memory info package for direct access to HW. Elevated privileges required because of that. This tool is not a virus and is not malicious in any kind. Tools may crash just like Memory info do if you don't have compatible graphics card, run it at limited user account and so on. Windows 8 compatibility is limited to ULPS-disabled configurations. Windows 10 compatibility is unknown.

Make sure no single 3D application is running while trying this tool!

If you've got the files from untrusted source, please check exe's SHA1 hash to make sure it wasn't altered:

Hi, do you happen to know if a 470 can be modded?
I'm interested in improving Ethereum mining performance with these cards.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers!

post #578 of 3387
its now possible to get more power on my 470 / 480 ? with the CU INFO?
post #579 of 3387
Possibly on RX 460 and 470, since they are not using the full ASICs. Meanwhile 480 is, CUInfo gains nothing on it.

i get this with the SAPPHIRE NITRO RADEON RX 470 8G
