Today we will be taking a look at Gigabyte's Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8GB graphics card. Of course AMD's Radeon RX 480 8GB is targeted towards gamers who want to play games at 1080p (1920 x 1080) and 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolutions. The Radeon RX 480 is based off AMD's Polaris 10 14nm GPU with 2304 stream processors, 144 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. The card directly competes with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. Gigabyte's G1 Gaming version of the card is slightly overclocked with a boost clock up to 1290 MHz (compared to 1266 MHz), features Gigabyte's WindForce 2X cooling system which is made up of a dual-fan cooler with three copper heatpipes that make direct contact with the GPU, and even has some RGB lighting.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470 OC Graphics Card Review

Sapphire's Nitro series has been around for a while and with the introduction of AMD's RX Series we now have the Nitro+ series. The Nitro+ series made its debut with RX 480 and now we have the RX 470 model. The RX 470 is of course a step down from AMD's current flagship RX 480 graphics card, but is based on the same Polaris 10 silicon. It features 2048 stream processors across 32 compute units, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Now the Nitro+ RX 470 OC Graphics Card is no reference card, it features a factory overclock of 1260 MHz boost, has Sapphire's custom DUAL-X cooling solution, black diamond chokes, RGB lighting and more. Let's throw this card on our test bench and see what it can do!

It seems many manufacturers will start rolling out their custom versions of the Radeon RX 480. We have already seen custom cards from Sapphire and PowerColor, now it is MSI's turn. Pictures have surfaced of their Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 8GB graphics card. As the same suggests this card comes with 8GB of memory, but it also has a custom PCB with a 4+2 power phase design and the board draws power from a single 8-pin connector.

Power Color is prepping a custom version of the Radeon RX 480, it will be the Radeon RX 480 Red Devil and photos of the card have been leaked to the web. From the photos we can see that the card features a large 3-fan cooler, which seems to be a bit longer than the actual board itself. This should deliver much better cooling to all sections of the card. The card also will feature a full-cover backplate.
