Throttles at stock and runs extremely hot.

It depends on your perspective. From what I see, RX 480 can have alright efficiency at 1200mhz or lower.

As soon as you try to pull a 1400, good luck have fun.

2c hotter might be worth it if you're into that theme!, But yeah the Nitro card seems to be the best of the pack.

80°C temperature during gaming is IMO completely unacceptable, especially for a card which has just 175W TBP (vs. 150W on reference) and is equipped with a huge heatsink w/ three fans on it. Afterall the TjMax for Ellesmere GPU is just 90°C.

It actually targets and stays at 75c (according to specs). But Sapphire made the ramp up of fans' speed slow for the acoustic reasons, so it can reach 77-80c while fans are speeding up. It should go down after the first phase.

Am I one of the only people here that uses custom fan curves? I can keep an overclocked 290x on air cool and quiet in a node 304 with a custom curve.

But if this thing is targeting 75c you don't have to do anything. It will increase fan speed on it's own if you increase voltage.

Why arent you a member of the 1080club yet ?
Hard time proofing you actually have one ?

My eyes burned like if someone placed fire cigars on my pupils because EXPOSED.
Farih is savage as.

It's the performance...

The only thing I know on pricing in eu is what has been posted before and both sides seem to be pretty equally overpriced, so because of that AMD should have priced lower just for you guys or made their good value card perform between two more expensive models yet charge the same. I feel for you all in EU, but its getting old. Perhaps stop complaining about the company that makes the chip and sells it to board partners which then sell the cards to your local shops, and complain to your local shops that you're tired of them taken advantage of you or just stop buying from them all together. Or complain to your government about their tax policies. Its no more AMD's fault then it is mine or yours.
It's the distributors of the custom board partners. Retailers raise prices when they are not getting any cards from the distributors. Obviously there are NV cards at MSRP. As well rarely some AMD cards when their supply is better.

What is most annoying are people like SapphirePR that say they have shipped many cards and that they are moving fast, yet there has not been a single 480 Nitro in any shop on mainland Europe. Their supply chain is awful.
Even the board partners that make both NV and AMD launched NV cards first and there is no sight of their AMD ones... so in some way AMD can also be responsible by giving the chance to design and manufacture to board partners too late.

IMHO they are short on chips, were given the chance to design too late and as a result ship only to selected markets with a way too big delay compared to reference launch.
Where as NV kept the 1060 ready to go, designed and all and then unleash it all at once. AMD rushed the launch IMHO and didn't give much of a chance to AIBs to launch at the same time.
