The watts dont matter, it was the amps and the card pulling too many through the pcie slot, and it already happened.. Its a moot point now, after amd was forced to fix what they failed to find in the first place.. So much for product testing huh?

That is true, but historically, AMD drivers have always been a bit more rough around the edges. It's just a shame they never managed to fix the DX 11 overhead issue.

The power issue of the 480, amd wouldnt have done anything except let people burn up their motherboards if nothing was found by independent testing.. Why didnt amd know of the power issue prior to release? Are they not testing their own gpu's? Are they just letting the consumer do the testing? Thats exactly what I think amd is doing to cut costs.

Error is an error. AMD screwed up with the fan being set to 0. HOWEVER AMD gpu's are set to throttle at specific temperatures so no cards should have actually have died. Any that were reported at this time were either by trolls or coincidental. There is a fail-safe built into the gpus for them to have died in such a manner.

Was there ever a gpu killed by that driver?

I know the 320.18 did.

I have yet to see how the 1060 overclocks compared to the 480. I know the 1060 is reportedly going over 2000mhz, my 480 with a heavily modified cooler will hit 1400 and thats getting close to its limit.

I upgraded to a 32" 1440p monitor on my main computer, so I had no need to purchase neither the 480 or 1060, and I went with the 1070 which is perfect for 1440p, actually its a little overkill.. From what I've seen so far the 1060 does better than the 480 at 1440p.

I was talking more about how it will age... you should not buy reference 1060s or RX 480s. And the difference in power won't amount to anything in how long the card will operate.

Simply put, it will give better performance than the 1060 1 or 2 or 3 years from now.

The monitor theory is not logical. Just because a cheap 1440p monitor is out doesnt mean it will be bought. I know this is hard for many high end users, but people generally dont operate like that.

AMD drivers along with Shader Cache have helped a lot in DX10 and DX11 scenarios. However, this is a problem that can not be fixed (hardware scheduler). Such is life (though it can and has been mitigated steadily and on a case by case basis).

OP, 200$ vs 300$, equal performance, 480 IS smoking it smile.gif

all the benchmarks i've seen, like this guru3d one, show the 1060 and 480 neck to neck in ashes. i thought ashes heavily used async? shouldn't the 480 be smoking it?

saying that 480 is a card of a lower price bracket, therefore being neck to neck can be considered "smoking it".
