AMD RX 480 Removed From PCI-SIG Integrator List

The PCI-SIG Integrators list is a list of hardware devices implementing the various PCI-Express specifications to the letter. AMD's Radeon RX 480 was on the list, but has been removed. The reason for this is that the card draws more power than its spec. According to specifications the card should draw 75W from the PCI-Express slot and another 75W from its 6-pin power connector. The RX 4870 was tested to draw more power than this 150W power budget.
