must say im kinda envious i haven't had a amd system since opteron 170 with bh-5 & x1900xtx cf
hurry up and bench it :)
But that would have been an ATI card then, not AMD.
Well I sold my GTX 1070 for $4 more than what I paid for it (thanks miners). Bought the RX 56 and it was $18 more than what I sold the GTX 1070. Basically, Im doing another side upgrade so I can play with new stuff. RX 56 has been great even with crap drivers. Most things were about the same performance as my OC 1070 while running stock.
I decided to go ahead and flash the card as I was not able to get over 1500mhz on the core and the HBM2 ram didn't like anything over 800mhz. I used the air version bios of RX 64 not the liquid. It took without any issues. Now when I run turbo mode it clock around 1560mhz and the ram is 945mhz. I've been able to OC into the 1600mhz range but not sure its limits but know that 1700mhz is a no go. If I can figure out the limits, I might try to flash to the liquid version as it gives even more watts available but need to test for current heat and the fan profiles to keep it under 80c.
Really a neat card and cant believe I have an all AMD system again... Super happy about that!
Good on you for supporting AMD.. but personally I would have stuck with the 1070, as it's quieter, cooler, and uses less power... my two cents.
