    User Reviews.



    whyscotty - Reference Sapphire

    5930k@4.4 - - RX480 8Gb@1266/2000 (1266 boost clocks)
    Crimson Drivers- 16.5.2 - Came with the card.


    Runs quiet(ish) no whine

    Everything on the gpu is out the box settings.

    Managed to get the core to 1355 but nothing on the mem - any OC to the mem caused a lock up.

    Most likely down to drivers that came with the card.(or user error)

    Hopefully a newer driver will improve this along with AB.

    DX11

    Overall not a bad little card

    Coped well at 1080 and would probably do ok at 1440 with a few settings turned down.

    Sorry it's not as good as a Gregster review. :D

    The thread is going to look a bit bare for a couple of days but will fill up fast.

    I wanted to get it started so I can link the reviews in the OPs.

    Can't wait! Will there be a long wait for aftermarket coolers? As reference seems to be limited in terms of OC
