Overclocking

The RX480, despite having a stock cooler, can still have a few more megahertz squeezed out of it. We don't expect enormous benefits but it's nice to see what might occur once we get some partner cards with better cooling. Also, who doesn't like free performance?

OK can you please now strap an AIO to it and see if it's temp bound? Quote

XFX is the only company who put a back plate on where all of the other companies did a bone head move buy not putting one on.

Also the ASUS, Gigabyte & MSI are a complete rip off in pricing on this card too they are charging an extra $40-$50 more compare to the XFX card.Quote

I was expecting quite a bit little lower temperatures, and lower power draw as well, but the performance is only slightly lower than I expected which is not bad. It's the price and availability that is going to give AMD the lead here, I reckon.

I read a Crossfire 480 review... it's bad. Either drivers seriously need work—which is a given, obviously—or this is the state of multi-GPU setups now.Quote

Yes for the moment but i think Nvidia is going to counter punch AMD maybe with the 1060 when it comes out, But who knows atm.

Well all know that Nvidia can do it but will they is the question.Quote
