Possible Ethereum Hashrate For The New AMD Radeon RX 480

The folks over at the Crypto Mining Blog got their hands on what appears to be the results of an Ethereum hashrate test on the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 480 and the results are less than stellar. Apparently the RX 470 results are a bit more encouraging for low power mining, depending on price and availability.

Unfortunately the hashrate that is apparently achieved at stock frequencies is a bit disappointing at just around 24 MHS for Ethereum Dagger-Hashimoto mining with about 100W, we are also told that with a memory overclock 26-28 MHS are possible with about 120W of power usage. If these results turn out to be true the Radeon RX 480 would not be that great for mining Ethereum as we suspected recently.
