PCI-SIG has deprived the Radeon RX 480 certificate PCIe

In early summer, AMD has introduced the Radeon RX 480, which could offer decent performance for little money. Later it became known that some 3D-card AMD Radeon RX 480 revealed an increased power draw from the PCIe slot. But just a few days the manufacturer has solved the problem by releasing a new driver.

However, it did not save AMD from loss of certification of PCI-SIG. Due to excessively high power from the PCIe slot, the reference Radeon RX 480 no longer complies with PCI-Express.

This means that AMD may not use the logo on the cards or in their advertising. However, this applies only to the reference card, while the AMD partners to create their own model of the adapter and are certified individually. In fact, for the average user this does not mean anything, and with the filling of the market original models of the accelerator this aspect and will no longer have any value.
