480 owners, what kind of FPS do you get on Battlefield 3 1080p High preset, and ultra preset? If one of you could check for me that would be awesome. I'm on a GTX 580 3GB right now and am looking to go RX 480 8GB within the next 2 months or so.

What do you use for compositing-effects now? I've never used Power Director. I used to use Premier/ AfterEffects/ Vegas and maybe some final cut. We're talking back in the 2007-2008 range so I'm out of touch. I considered a Nvidia card for better AfterEffects/premier support this generation but I don't have any projects planned. I don't think JackCY knows how quickly 200+ layers in AfterEffects can bring a system to it's knees without acceleration more than an igpu.

Apparently OpenCL support is finally decent in Premiere, but still improving. Once upon a time, it would make more sense to use software rendering than to use OpenCL, that is apparently no longer the case, but I have no intentions of trying it and the reports around the web are still thin.

Depending on what I need to do I will use either PowerDirector (or any of the many add-ons for it - Adorage is pretty awesome), Filmora, GIMP, or sometimes actually write code to do what I want (and spew out a few thousands images along the way... pretty dirty, usually biggrin.gif ). Most of the time, though, I can do what I need with PowerDirector, even with collaborative projects.

I have a friend who does professional editing using an HD4650, he thinks the system is fast enough. He also uses Premiere, though. I think he has a Sandy Bridge i5, and it's certainly not overclocked. It's pretty amazing what you can do with so little hardware sometimes... he records everything in 4K 60FPS and renders down to 1080p 24fps. Pans look very smooth that way. I am trying to convince him that an RX 460 will be a decent enough upgrade without any notable downsides, but he's stubborn. Might have an easier time buying the RX 460 for myself and giving him the 7870XT without him knowing it... then the renders will be that much faster.. as in, four or fives times faster, LOL!

I, on the other hand, want my results before I create the project. If nVidia hardware worked better for me, I'd be using it.

And I love the Hitman series thumb.gif

In any event, there's no clear answer. I've had bad cards from every brand and great cards from every brand. If you're looking to buy right now, I strongly suggest this... for obvious reasons thumb.gif. That card has been extremely good to me, easily the best I've owned.

So, that's a Gigabyte card - and I've only had two of those, but they've both been decent, but that one is just great. I've had two ASUS cards (5850 and R9 290), both of which had to be returned due to failures, but that's anecdotal, at best. Sapphire, though, has made most of my favorite cards. My 7870XT, which I use in my HTPC, is a Sapphire. It had some coil whine when it was new, but I managed to get rid of it.

In fact, speaking of coil whine, Sapphire is probably the best choice these days, with their Black Diamond Chokes. Their fans are phenomenal as well, but they sometimes skimp on the meat for the heatsink.

In the end, it really depends on what exact model you're considering.

I bought Sapphire rx460 2gb version with around $127.5 US dollars a week ago, then I found out some rx470 locally is extremely cheap with around $177.5 US dollars, include xfx rx470 single fan and HIS rx470. I just play csgo and lol now so rx460 is more than enough, but I am a budget gamer so rx470 would let me use the computer like may be 5 years if not broken. Of course on the other hand my current new xd460 warrenty is just 2 years, wit the money I save then I can get a more powerful one once it is broken may be around 3 to 4 years later. My gigabytes hd5770 stop working after like 5 years something.

Hi guys,
has anyone here gotten the rx470 sapphire platinum reference?
How loud and cool is it?
post #765 of 4365
Mine showed up this morning, got lucky and happened to be near my house with time to kill at lunch so I just got it installed. Forgot to run Overwolf for FPS, but it was smooth enough I'd guess 60+ with ultra settings and Vulcan on Doom. Old card couldn't even run it.

At stock its pretty quiet. Temps stay where they are programmed to under load, 70-80c.

If you can stand the noise of the cooler at 3200rpm (still pretty quiet but you can hear the woosh of the air moving), it usually wont break 65c at stock.

For anything over stock power limit it can get very noisy. I run ~1300 core with fan speeds close to 3800, cant hear it over my Roccat XTD headphones, but it drowns out my monitors tiny integrated speakers.

RX 480 full coverage waterblocks do fit it though. So you can go to custom water very easily down the road.

Thanks, I'm planning to run it into a node 202 and from what you claim should be as loud as a 1070 FE, am I right?

Ultra 45/50 fps but i have a FX-8320 probably with a i7 you can get a few fps more.-

I don't have one to compare to, but I believe they were fairly close in reviews at stock. You can look at reference RX 480 stock numbers in reviews for relevant numbers.

Hey guys,

I'm having a weird issue. I have XFX RX 480 8GB GTR and Powercolor RX 470 4GB in separate computers on Windows 10. In both computers, I cannot raise power limit in Wattman. Whenever I try, it just resets a few seconds later to 0. I cannot lower the power limit either. Both computers do have EVGA Supernova G2 (750 with 480 and 550 with 470). This is the only common factor I can think of. The 470 is a brand new build. No other overclocking software on either machine. What's the deal? Driving me nuts.

Edit: nevermind you have to set temperature to manual to change power limit. Weird...
