I mean, why would you trust any vendor if this happends over and over? Strangely enough it happends to AMD way to often. And the people keep that in mind.
This sounds incredible like some sort of cult. Why is this guy here in the forum more trustworthy? At the moment I try to figure out who has useful information at all. So many users just deny good information and spread their FUD and borderline stupidity over and over. Then someone else brings a guy with Paint? Seriously, I trust a multimeter more than a guy doing videos in Paint.
Voltages are just part of the problem. The RX480 uses too much Amperes too. Regarding to power nothing seems to work as intended on this card. Less power equals lower performance. I wonder why nobody is angry about the potential loss in performance. A card should work straigth from the factory and not be patchwork after. What is rubbish about finding this ugly?

 

LOL. You do realise that the twitch stream you linked is the selfsame buildzoid that did the video in Paint? Do you find him believable or not. Which is it? Either you're a bit thick or you're just not even paying attention to what your fellow posters have to say. You seem smart enough so I'll generously assume the latter. You're welcome.

 

"Strangely enough it happends to AMD way to often"; this is literally the first time that I can remember this specific problem being an issue on an AMD card. I'm not willing to use other random bugaboos with different products as some sort of convoluted formula that leads to this specific issue.

 

Yes, it's a problem. The card was obviously released with some goofy power delivery. It's not however the End of Times and if AMD says they can fix it with a driver, and if people have been able to successfully reduce power to the card without losing performance, then there probably is a simpler solution than calling back every production reference 480 and redesigning the PCB because somebody you believe (or don't believe, I'm still not clear on that), poked around with a multimeter.


Farewel happy Fields; Where Joy for ever dwells; Hail horrours, hail; Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell; Receive thy new Possessor; One who brings; A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time; The mind is its own place, and in it self; Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.
