    Yeap, maximum allowed by the wiring, 75PCIe + 75 6 pin. just a little more and you start frying something. So it has to consume considerably less to have all peaks under 150...

      BTW. Are you european? Or asain? Because I find that my European and asain department mates make comments like this and don't realize how amazingly rude it is in American culture.
      Why is it rude?

      Also "american" is a bit rude to use outside US when you actually mean US only, there are other countries in America.

        Maybe part of the reason for that is that not enough people ask "wy u gained weigt dis monts bro? u need help wiv someting?" there because it is "exceptionally rude".

        Where I live (not US) it's more common to talk about health and weight and stuff with others. Not saying it's not annoying, but there is no "rudeness" attached.

        Michael taken by US average looks actually normal in that picture.
        Irrelevant as it was a relative comparison. There is a photo of him skinny, no facial hair and smiling at the end of each article, then he posts an article when he gained some weight, has (nice and cured) facial hair and looks tired, not happy.

        Asking if something is wrong does seem normal here.

        Opposite is true too, so when someone comes from redish country to greenish, do not ask why everybody buy small cars
        That's not rude, that's a stupid question. Most tourists have enough brain to understand that US cars cannot physically fit in most EU streets.

          I bet it's more power efficient than the 1080. Peak power draw for 1080 is 180W, peak power draw for the 480 is 150w. According to rumors I've heard though it's actual full load power draw tends to be hovering around as low as 100W, if that's true, that's some serious power per watt.

            Michael Do you have only a RX 480 (Polaris 10) to test or do you have also a RX 460 (Polaris 11)?

Once Michael posts the test results of the Radeon parts using the hybrid driver and/or posts the Nvidia cards running Noveau, we will have an apples to apples comparision.
              Can you guys can stop asking to compare AMDGPU vs Nouveau.

              Michael is comparing official driver vs official driver and he is right.

              Your choice not to buy NVidia for that is respectable. But you, AMD fanboys, try SO HARD to see AMD win vs NVidia and this is childish at best.

                What we can do there, some birds have ability to became peevish on about any subject and some only on selected ones

                  we were talking of something being "rude" for all "americans".

                    Well i actualy does not believe in things like generalisations by xyz nation , especially after fifty-fifty results on Brexit Xyz people can be like this - like that, some are more peevish on xyz subject then others and that is about it

                      I agree that typical power in games will be lower, but the fps/watt reported in Phoronix articles is about power consumption in benchmarks (vsync is turned off). The benchmarks are using a high-end CPU and this maximizes GPU utilization. An average Linux gaming machine contains a slower CPU, so the GPUs in real-world machines will have slightly lower power consumption in comparison to Phoronix measurements.
