[Kitguru] Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ OC 4GB & 8GB Review (with benchmarks) - Page 3

I don't know about you guys but I think the performance of the card is pretty good for the price.

Look at the GTA V benchmarks. The AMD R9 Nano which costs $560 only gets two more FPS than the Nitro. And the $430 Fury X is only one FPS higher than that.

How can you complain?

Not to mention it consumes more power than 1080. Not bad for such product. Technology however leaves a lot to wish for.. .

Disappointing results?? My lying eyes, I guess, because it looks like a fantastic value to me.

Now here come the excuses why this review doesn't count unless of course it shows 1500MHz+ overclock.

Not the performance people are disappointed with. It's the abysmal overclock. Didn't you get the memo that custom 480s will overclock to the high moon?

Are you cray cray? The sole judgement of a cards performance is based off how much it can OC.

I'm disappointed. On that same chart, a card available at the same price and sometimes cheaper is faster than the 480 by almost 10fps while using quite a lot less power and was available with AIB on day one. The 1060.

Wccftech ? They lied. While 1400-1500 Mhz is possible on air (depending on sample), there is a main problem: voltage is becoming high and so the power consumption. Which custom card can cool about 250W + ? rolleyes.gif (only the GPU ofc)

WattMan limits the voltage to 1.15 V, no wonder they (custom cards) cannot reach higher. Just need to wait until other softwares come out. But even then, i hope you have a wc block.

So, stay with ref card, undervolt & try to get the max out with 1.05 V-1.10 V ~. There is nothing more to get out of these chips without destroying the efficiency.

I'm looking into the GTX 1060 but everyone's out of that one too. What on Earth is going on?

Honestly for both cards it's probably going to be a month before there is a steady stream available at retailers.

I guess everyone failed to read that the Asus software allowed more OC than Wattman, and that they expect the Nitro to OC a lot more when TriXX 3.0 is released.
