[Various] AMD Posts Radeon 16.7.1 Drivers, Fixes RX 480 Power Consumption Issues - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I dont think it was blown out of proportion, this is a decent problem that was identified by the public instead of the company. I am happy to see that AMD resolved the issue quickly and did a good job as well. I also appreciate the fact that they have an option to toggle it on or off. When stuff like this blows up, its less likely that it will happen again anytime soon because you KNOW people are going to be testing this now.

IIRC Gibbo said that there have been several cards, including Nvidia cards, that draw more power than the spec from PCI-E. Most likely this fix is just to assuage peoples worries about cards blowing up.

This is true and isn't particularly uncommon in the mid-range segments where more than a single 6-pin PCI-E power connector is rare.

I wonder is this a 480 only thingy or will also do it on R9s?
Oh I found out why crimson gimped my R9 285/380 OC crossfire. Probably does the same for RX 480 too.
I just was not looking in the right spot. Crimson takes control of speed and power setting from Afterburner type apps. Right click screen for AMD settings>> Gaming>>Global>>Graphics select and set. Instead of actual numbers it uses %. Oh well at least I have calculator app. I am happy now, got both running at 1010 Mhz and 15% power boost with no voltage increase on water. specool.gif
