10% in ROTTR I assume?

That's pretty epic. Especially as the 480 was behind the 1060 pretty badly in that game.

BTW you have 16.7.2 at the bottom when the driver is 16.7.3Quote

Apparently this driver has slightly nerfed overclocking of the memory in Wattman.

I wouldn't use wattman anyway. Thing is way over complicated and at the same time is missing simple features.. Once Vendor's release updated OC suites. Won't be a need for wattman. Especially since each suite controls the own company's RGBsQuote

I always use Sapphire Trixx for overclocking my AMD card it will be interesting to see what Trixx 3.0 brings to the table apart from LED control on the RX480 NitroQuote

Pretty sure it automatically adjust it's settings based off BIOS too. Like if you are in the silent bios, lowers clocks and fan curve, but once you switch to OC bios, it does the opposite and allows for further OCs. So it should be pretty good, certainly better than Wattman.Quote
