Where're the AIB RX480s?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The reference has been out for over a month now and the only AIB cards that are available (if you get lucky) are the Sapphire Nitro and Powercolor Devil.

Is this normal?

Pretty normal. The hype set expectations a bit too high, though.

I was wondering the same thing. From the performance of the Nitro, it looks like you'd be better off getting the reference.

I've had the reference and I'll never go that route again. It's so loud and hot. I was hitting 90c regularly. In fact the only way to make it tolerable was to undervolt and underclock the card. Then I could use a more "sensible" fan profile. Even this was a balancing act that wasn't always ideal.

Yeah the nitro is disappointing alright, but the gaming x is a bit better

though somewhat poor in overclocking also.

As far as performance I agree, but there's clearly an inventory shortage.

Pascal was extremely short on inventory too and people were awfully vocal about it. Polaris is technically here, has been for about 5 weeks now and you can't buy one.

Didn't AMD poke fun at Nvidia about their Pascal shortage and said that their RX 480 is ready to go with plenty of stock?

I'm not mad, just confused.

I have a nitro 8gig in pre-order and the main reasons I decided for that card or any 3rd party ones is because they are quieter and somewhat cooler than reference as noted above, dont care for OC since it stresses the card too much for the gains I can get, just my 0.02
