I guess that really does prove how much not having a cold plate on the heatsink makes.

Well I thought the Strix was crap after reading the TPU review but this paints a much better picture:

Dunno that TPU review is suspicious to me. Don't know what W1zzard was thinking claiming it can only OC 3% and his power draw chart is also very different to KitGuru's.

I think Powercolor has the best design for the RX 480. Cooling looks like a beast too.

Aside, $280 for AIB 480 is pretty steep. Considering that it's just below a gtx 970 and those can be had for roughly the same price or cheaper. AND same goes for the 390, it can be had for the same price, yes it's more power hungry, but it's still not as compelling. I was hoping for it to be at around $260. Throw in tax, and the card becomes quite expensive compared to a gtx 1060. Obviously launch prices are way different, but being newer isn't enough of an incentive.

And then add, both of which were fixed by new drivers.

Isn't Powercolor a crappy manufacturer though?

Well if you turned compatibility mode off in Crimson, RX 480 would still burn up PCIe slots; on the other hand the hotfix driver wasn't entirely effective for Pascal either. devil.gif

480 > 970..

People are crazy spending $300+ on these aftermarket 480's and 1060's lol. Good thing here in the states we can now spend $370 no tax and get a 980Ti and im pretty close to pulling the trigger on that biggrin.gif

These AIB 480's are going to be great in crossfire with such low TDP, I hope the red team can sell a few to remain relevant. With the 1060 being the new 970 for a $100 more AMD is going to need to sell a few of these things to stay in the game.
