AMD Radeon RX 480 Review – Tested with CrossFire, VR, DX12 and overclocking




When AMD announced during Computex RX 480, the company proposed two things: the graphics card must be suitable to run VR games and he had to have a low price, so that virtual reality would be accessible to more people.

AMD RX 480

To deliver more performance for less money AMD knocked at GlobalFoundries, the new chips, code-named Polaris bakes on the 14nm process. As you get more chips out of a wafer with the smaller trial, the rate was also down. Anyone who has two hundred dollars, to the RX 480 receive a video card that is fast enough for Fri-games, which is at least the promise.

For the euro countries is AMD’s list prices of 220 euros for the RX 480 with 4GB of memory and 260 euros for the 8GB version. What do you get for that money and AMD is keeping its promise? We have the RX 480 loose and tested in CrossFire, and set against old and new cards from Nvidia and AMD themselves to find out.

We thank Alternate for the loan of a Gigabyte RX 480, so we got the new GPU also could test in CrossFire.
