You are right man, i just got a message from them that it gets shipped today!
So happy right now.
Yeah, the packaging people don't seem to work at weekends, and its usually safer to ship products on weekdays, than risk a weekend in a storage depot.
True! i so can't wait to try that bad boy out and flash it to Vega 64 bios. I heard these cards come with a bios switch, wich is great so if i would mess up i can switch it.
But so far it seems to be totally safe to do.
I need to get a new power supply first ASAP, cause i don't think mine will handle it if i push the card.
As people have said, the watts gets ridiculous high when OC'd.
I know from experience how a bad PSU can blow up your stuff, happened to me twice.
But then again, it had 2 GTX 580's in SLI and they eat ALOT of watts, it even blew up my system that had a 200 euro powersupply with 860W 80+ platinum from Silverstone.
GPU-Z has reported my V64 at up to 400W, never going above.
I have an 850W PSU, and I think i'm fine.
I only have CPU/GPU/MEM and 2 SSD's and two laptop 7200 HDD's though.
edit : and its all watercooled with high airflow thru the case, so on normal air i'd guess a good 100W more for the CPU/GPU combo easily.
I had something pop in my old 1000W Corsair PSU (i think), but never found where it came from or what it did, because the pc was just fine....the smell seemed to come from there though.
I used someone's tweak and i'm leaving it at that, GPU clocks at 1625mhz on the core and 950mhz on HBM2 with voltage lowered.
It's using 190-200w at the most.
Here is my Firestrike test, seems like a little boost on FCU.
Memory bus clock
4K HBCC off
8K HBCC On
Some Game tests for Fury/Vega w/ZEN k17 8/16
Just about gets those Destiny 2 2560x1440p FPS while recording on 3440x1440 running Vega 64 LC.
My performance tanks on Earth in Destiny 2 especially around the churche it can go as low as 35-40fps.

My best 2 scores so far, the lower I'd drop the voltage on the main clock the higher my clocks would get. 1160v, but a big boost came from overclocking the HBM. It was the only time I got into the 26K+ graphic score.
Increased my HBM to 1150Mhz 1125v
Graphics score 26 866
still gonna try and drop some voltages lol
Reduced HBM voltage 1150Mhz 1115v
Graphics Score 6511
...amd I'm done lol
On Fury don't turn ON Ultra Textures -> Then you'll have Great performance !
On VEGA & 480/580 8GB you can have it,
but with 4xx/5xx i will recommend - Stick to V.High (it's wiser)
Where do you get these benchmark results from? Thanks!
