that be a mistake to do that.
single gpu is the better option always

i just wonder how much dx12 / vulkan will improve multi-gpu usage and what makes me interested in dual 480's. really been nice if amd had released their counter-part to the 1070 / 1080.

Depends entirely on how the developer decides to handle multi gpu. Dx12 and Vulkan put the weight on the game devs to properly implement multi gpu and until consoles have it single gpu solutions will always be superior

I'd say wait till Dx12 is more mainstream, atm it's still in its infancy and nothing to drop a 1080 over

That comes in 2017 with HBM2.

Don't go for dual GPUs as always it only works well in selected titles and there still aren't many Vulkan/DX12 titles with multi GPU support. It's up to devs with newer low level APIs. Even Nvidia is running away from SLI as fast as it can even for them it's not worth the money to maintain it I believe they are phasing it out. Dual 480s do pack a punch when the program using them can use them properly but the moment you get some old game you're down to single 480 performance.
Unless your 1080 suffers one of the 5-7 issues present in Paxwell and it affects you, you shouldn't switch to dual 480s. While I would happily convert ya, you wouldn't be happy probably having 50%? less performance from a card that costs 30% when running in single GPU in unsupported games.

Well, I finally had some time to play around with my XFX RX 480 4GB. I was able to successfully flash it using the 8gb XXX OC vbios so now it's a free upgrade, lol. I'm sure a lot of people saw that picture of the thumb pulling the sticker off of the XFX box....that was my thumb, lol.

But more to the point this thing screams a bit more than I thought it would and finally broke 14k graphics score on 3dmark Firestrike so I wanted to share the settings and such.

Z170 Stinger
16GB G.Skill Trident Z 3200Mhz ram
Corsair AX860i
XFX RX 480

with these settings it hit a max of 82*c and I had a hard time convincing my wife I hadn't taken her hair dryer tongue.gif

Either

how well do they scale? how much heat do they toss out together?

With a custom fan curve maxing out at 3500rpm I can keep them at 75c pretty easily at stock volts 1330c/2100m. Scaling is really dependent on the game. Some scale great, some dont scale at all. Just the way dual gpus work. I mainly got them as upgrades for my kids once vega comes out. Then these are getting transferred into their computers. If you have some specific games in mind I can test them out and let you know once my movies are done encoding.

This is what I have installed currently.



And the games I own if you want to look for something to compare to.
