[TPU] Radeon RX 480 Cards Can Successfully be Flashed to RX 580 - Page 2

post #11 of 66
Are people without 480s going to buy a 580 when 480 prices are lower and they can flash?

Yes they will... Majority will as they do not know specs or flashing.

Besides a sale is a sale, sell a 480 or a 580... Sale

Aftermarket 480s are any cheaper than 580s.

Flashbacks to the 390/390X.

"It's new silicon, really-- manufacturing refinements make it a respin, not a rebrand."

290X with 390X bios says "uh, no, not really."

At least the 390X came with double the VRAM.

The RX 580 is still slightly better silicon than the 480 since the 480's stability tops out with the 580 bios but the actual 580 can overclock a bit more. Still it's hardly an improvement.

Does the new memory state that yields less power consumption during video playback work on a reflashed RX 400 series card? What about multi-monitor?

TITAN X is a card designed for maximum performance at the time of release, for people with the money it is no issue.

How is this a slap in the face? It allows those with older 480s to "potentially" squeeze some extra performance out of their cards.......for free.

dude they marketed those GPUs as new and faster than last year's 480 and people sold their 480s to buy 580/580rx then they read about this ?!!!


it hurts AMD a lot more than Nvidia's 3.5gb vram scandal

Point me to those people who sold their 480s please. And show me where AMD marketed the 580 as faster than 480.

They have always compared it to the 380.
