rx480 owners must be thrilled now they get to choose to either have their card memory speed gimped or face stability issues.

how did this card ever make it through to retail ?

So 3 % more if correct in some games that are going to be reviewed vs the 1060 . So the gap is reducing already. Performance per watt increases are already occurring through drivers - nice to see its this soon too thanks to the media making lots of noise about it. I guess 480 owners are getting some benefit from this non issue publicity already.

If you have a extremely crappy low end psu then you can tick compatibility mode to be sure you are ok , most people will not need to bother. I'd be surprised if this actually reduces performance much at all . Could improve performance for some ref cards if its undervolting as has been proven on numerous sites already.

Damaging sales ? last i read it was sold out everywhere ... doubt it.

Pretty much sums it up. +rep

According to people who are way smarter than I and know about this way more than I, the card overdrawing from PCIE slot isn't really a problem unless you're using a bargain bin mobo, and even then maybe. The issues start if you try using 3 or 4 of them.

doesn't the card power off or crash the system in games and benchmarks ? I've seen YT reviews confiriming it.

Never heard of it. Surely there'd be a thread on it on OCN by now?

Maybe that's with overclocked cards?

AMD chose a rather unorthodox power delivery system for their reference cards.

So you did some wonky speculation and then pulled a conclusion out of your backside?

The first option fix won't lower performance despite how much you would like it to.

How did the 970 and 980 ever make it to retail?

The 970 is inherently flawed. nVidia denied it until they were forced into an admission after being presented with the undeniable facts about the 3.5 + 0.5 memory failure.
The 980, same as the RX 480, also fails PCI-E power spec certification due to its spikes through the PCI-E slot; but that was never widely criticised until AMD do it.

Seems many people jump onto the Bash AMD bandwagon simply for the sake of bashing AMD while viewing nVidia through rose tinted glasses.

3:35, he says the only game that didn't crash was overwatch. all the others he ran crashed. It also couldn't complete benchmarks.


around 2:40 you can see the card powers off the system in ROTR



lol how can you not know this, you're 3/4 of every 480 thread there is

Only thing i heard like that was pre release of the card with non release drivers , an asian site tried to do a live demonstration - so it should have been expected and they never should have bothered as it was against ndas etc. Surpised the card worked at all without a proper driver.

Didn't see any reviews saying they had trouble running benchmarks and i read at-least a dozen reviews .
