Yup and that gpu pulls 120W from the PCI-E slot alone. There was also the 960 which pulled 100W from the slot. No one complained about those.

Its insane how fast things went from "the card draws 5watt more from pcie slot than the standard of 75watt. it is unsure wether this will form an issue" to "All AMD cards blow up in red smoke"

driver fix incoming.
its not like Nvidia cards that was sold with hardware faults that burned your whole computer up.
and the CEO knew that the cards sold were bad.....another Nvidia lie/distortion to you as a customer.

Well I'm just a volunteer so I don't get paid sadly. But I've heard from those who do that a) the pay isn't very good (50 cents per quality post) and b) they work you like donkeys. There are better ways to make money... >_>

If anything happens to these 480s it's going to because of one of these reasons:
1. Cheap PSU
2. Over-clocking
3. User Error
4. Attempting to sue AMD
e) I'm only going to feel bad for those that run into problems with this card at stock.
I will not feel sorry for those that over-clock and damage anything in their system.

And you Mr. Clever guy should maybe watch the whole video and read all the stories/reviews about it and realize that AMD is exceeding the power limits even at stock.

Soem ppl just feel the need to protect the company at all costs...

they can't fix this nonexistent problem with a driver, all they can do is turn down the voltage which might mean reducing the boost clock. (people would flame AMD all over again for false advertising of the boost clock so thats not an option either)

However they can place a disclaimer that you need a compliant PSU/motherboard that can handle the massive 5watt over spec

its spiking to 85W on pcie.
Max standard for 12V is ~66W.
They are going over the spec by 20W already. If you run crossfire or OC then its much more..

I nor watched the video and nor am I an AMD fanboy.
I stand by what I said, there really shouldn't be any damage outside of those 4 things.
If problems do occur, a disclaimer may be added or a driver will be created to reduce the consumption and any cards that are unstable will be replaced.
If people would like to try to go after AMD for this, they will first have to go back and test previous generations of both red and green and prove this is the first instance

Edit:






Is this guy serious? Nothing but a troll who claims he has fans at the front, the sides and the top yet all we can see is the PSU fan. The HD cage is totally bent out of shape, there are no drives (HD/SSD or optical) and he claims that he's running an FX8350 at 4.5 on a Hyper 212 (just a guess). He obviously hasn't cleaned his system in a long time as the cooler, PSU fan and board are dusty. I don't know what the quality of his board is but as it's an Asrock I assume it's not the best in existence as their PCB's are usually thinner than other board makers.

I was on a budget too once (always on a tight budget compared with some) but this is just terrible.
The 480 looks out of place in that slob's case. I wouldn't be surprised if this guy lived with a bunch of ferrets.

consistend power draw and spiking are two different things. You can't take OC into account as thats completely on the user. ( plus every oc'd card pulls way beyond spec as well ) only stock crossfire scenario should be taken into consideration.

1) the 480 doen't generate nearly as bad of power spikes like the asus 960 strix (220 watt spikes consistently) which hasn't received any complaints. so just ignore power spikes for now.

2) consistend, or average, watt trough pcie. people have been running heavely OC'd crossfire/sli setups for years without motherboards blowing out. Even lower quality mobo's should be fine.

3) if the max standard is 66watf then the 960 mentioned has also failed specs. also, specs isn't everything, motherboards can set higher limits trough software/hardware if needed.

Despite all this, MAYBE dual 480's on a cheap mobo will cause your computer to shut off, in that case, no harm is done.

Instead of sniping back and forth, invest @35 minutes and watch the latest PC Per video. Well done and clearly shows a problem.

Save the Ryan is bias stuff since AMD has acknowledged this problem and is working on a fix and he just had Raja SVP from AMD on live the other day with the release.

I agree that some claims of motherboard damage are probably overblown, BUT after watching this video and the report done by Tom's hardware. this card as released from AMD, stock appears over spec for power draw from the MB.
