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?

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 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
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.

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