[Guru3D]Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro - Page 82

post #811 of 860

Just read the ComputerBase review of the 480 Devil. A lot quieter than the Nitro and more interestingly, in 'Quiet mode', it consumes the same power as the GTX 1060 while offering 93% of the power.
these guys some kind of authority over all other reviews ?

and the 480 Devil overrides the power consumptions of all other custom 480s and ref ? lachen.gif

in 'Quiet mode'
and whats the highest core clock it can manage in quiet mode ?

how about 480 Devil vs 1060 OC vs OC ?

Heat is an issue. Noise is an issue.
And for some the extra power consumption shows up on their power bill. Because not everyone has cheap USA electricity.

Yes actually, CB are one of the highest authorities when it comes to benches and tests. No really.

Anyway, of course when you OC Polaris, efficiency goes out of the window as we know 1300+ is not where the arch is best efficiency-wise. No arguments that at higher clockspeeds Pascal is king. But what I keep saying - at lower levels Polaris is surprisingly efficient and appears very close to the fabled efficiency king Pascal.

Polaris an efficiency monster? thumb.gif

Like I said, 'Quiet Mode' offers 93% the performance of the 1060.

Let me troll them a bit...

Remember that it's also 8GB vs 6GB. The additional memory also has a bit of power consumption. So in reality, we can almost say that Polaris is more efficient than Pascal.

Dream on. On par in perf/power when optimized for AMD arch. with DX12 or Vulkan.

Pascal is unquestionably far more efficent than Polaris, that's without debate (hell, Maxwell is almost as efficient on 28nm, maybe even more so). Point is that efficiency, especially at this price point, is completely unimportant other than in how it affects temps. The 480 is still around the 970 in efficiency which last I checked was not exactly considered a power hog....
post #818 of 860
This conversation could be a lot more interesting if some individuals did not bring red vs green fanboi flags. Polaris is less than stellar in terms of feature set. Nvidia launched Pascal with some nifty things ( <3 Ansel) but if the performance is meh compared to their own last gen, I don't see it as a great sell. Overall, a meh launch on all fronts compared what both already had on the market.

oh wait! since Pascal does not have Async shader Hardware , when future comes, You have to Cry! also if you add 2 GB more , How much wattage ? let's say 20w.

 

Polaris Is more efficient than Maxwell in DX12/Vulkan.I don't know Where their hate toward Polaris come from.

I see a problem with your claim. You use their Anno 2205 numbers for power consumption but for performance you use their overall index. Take their Anno 2205 performance numbers, compare them to the relevant power consumption numbers and you end up with a completely different picture:



So the same power consumption, but the 1060 is 38% faster then?
