The first detailed shots of XFX’s Radeon RX 480 Double Dissipation have been leaked to the web. The card makes use of a custom-designed PCB with a pretty hefty custom cooling solution. This cooling solution is made to support the factory overclock of the card and to give users some good overclocking headroom as well.
The cooling solution for the card is made up of two 90 mm cooling fans that sit on top of two aluminum fin stacks, to which heat drawn from the copper base is conveyed by four 6 mm thick copper heatpipes. One really cool thing about the cooling solution is that the fans can be detached without any tools and without having to detach the cooler shroud.
The cooling solution is finished off by a full backplate that has the XFX logo on it.
The card features a 6-phase VRM with high-end International Rectifier DirectFETs to condition it for the GPU and it gets power from a single 8-pin PCI-Express power connector. As far as speeds go the card features factory-overclocked speeds in excess of 1300 MHz. XFX could launch the card next week.
