Will the rx480 reference cards as well as the aib cards work with legacy bios motherboards? Just wondering before getting one.
Seemly mostly no.
Someone was complaining here his 480 doesn't work with his mobo, and that there is no BIOS switch.
And on reddit someone posted a screenshot of Sapphire support system, where they already put their entire lineup in the list (when you select a product to create a ticket), all the new 400 series GPUs have written in parenthesis "UEFI" thus I assume even the custom cards are all UEFI only too.
And a minor nitpick: "AIB card" is redundant AIB actually means "Add In Board", even the reference card is a AIB. People are misusing a lot the term AIB because of the phrase "AIB Partner" (Add In Board Partner), that means non-AMD AIB manufacturer... but AMD make their own AIB too (engineering samples and some reference boards), and "AIB Partners" also make reference AIB, and custom AIB.
So in short: AIB means "card", thus AIB card means "card card".
Thanks for the aib clarification . I was hoping it would work so I could put off a major swap over for a while longer. I was curious because I have a g45 express chipset mobo non uefi of course that works perfectly well with a zotac 750ti which I think was told it was uefi.
