[Kitguru] Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ OC 4GB & 8GB Review (with benchmarks) - Page 6

post #51 of 226
Get a 4GB version. Best bang for the buck. I think that the core isn't strong enough to take full advantage of 8 GB anyway. The 8GB version is behind the GTX 1060 in terms of $/perf. I'll wait for the AIB 4GB versions to come down in price and then pick one up. Luckily I'll be living in the Netherlands, where it's usually cold, so the heat generation won't be an issue either.

It's not his business indeed, but he does make some good points.

Its been bugging me a long time and i am NOT a fanboy either.

I love hardware in general and dont care who make's it but i would like fair comparisons though.

I think its important for one to do their research and never take anything on face value. I believe most members here are savy enough to wade through the mud and find the truth. Facts over fanboyism.

This is true and is valid for almost everything, not just computer parts.

The problem with that is, that reviewers (which we're supposed to trust) don't always disclose the correct information. Different testbeds, different methods, different games. It becomes increasingly difficult to evaluate and decide which reviewers are biased, accurate, consistent. Sometimes a review will paint a product in a bad light, unintentionally. (By using certain games, by (not) using certain APIs). If you're not paying close attention, it can make a product seem that much better (or worse).

And then you have forums that will continue to perpetuate the misinformation.

Question though, I had thought the raw data of the 14nm process node vs TSMC's 16nm node showed that the Samsung process had a bit of an advantage in switching speed and either leakage or standard voltage or something. So wouldnt Pascal have a frequency issue as well if it is on a slightly inferior process? Im just thinking, if Pascal gains 500MHz on the new node with a somewhat similar arch, then Polaris with a somewhat similar arch should also be expected to gain a similar amount on a slightly better node no? I realize reltionships like that are not identical and we shouldnt compare one arch to another, but it just seems weird that is TSMC is a bit worse like so many claimed that it would gain so much speed while Polaris does not.

Absolutely disgusting heatsink on that Zotac Mini model though. That seems like it is why the card has stayed in stock this whole time to me.

Hey, take that back!

With a custom fan curve it runs at 75C at 115% TDP 1950Mhz in Need for speed 2016. 45fps in 4k on medium no AA.

Can't hear the fan with in-ear ear buds. Weather was too hot to use headphones.

Pretty good card.

What you have to remember about the 14nm process is that AMD is building processors on it and needed to have the APU at the same lithography as the cpu tech. They happened to produce a very good 1080p gaming product with very low cost and exceptional reliability that drew down nVidia's market prices rather well.

And next year AMD is going to be playing around with 7nm while nVidia tries to make Paxwell-2-Electric-Boogaloo....
