Hi, I would buy a AMD RX 480 but on some technology sites (eg .Tom’s Hardware) I read that the RX 480 on the PCI-E slot under some circumstances may drain more power than expected by the specification of PCIe slot (86W vs 75W)

Do you think this is true or the staff of Tom's Hardware has made some mistakes in calculation?



thank you
