Early versions of the AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics with 4GB ram have in fact than advertised more ram. The video cards are exactly the same as the models with 8GB of ram and therefore as much memory, but half are disabled in the BIOS. Monday discovered some tweakers, the presence of additional memory chips. At the time, the flash tool was not available.

It is not clear how many cards with 4GB 8GB ram are in circulation. AMD has itself stated that such models were intended only for reviewers and the manufacturer says that versions in the store actually 4GB ram. That turns out not to be the case, but may have only the first batch of 4GB versions of the “extra” memory onboard. The corresponding versions appear at the time of writing to be sold everywhere.

Update 22:52: On Gathering of Tweakers let bertieX and Astennu know that it succeeded them to start at 4GB 8GB vram variants of the RX 480. It also appears that the box in which the cards are sent to the box of 8GB card, covered with a sticker with the 4GB designation. So put bart092 a picture of the box with his XFX RX 480, under the 4GB sticker shows the 8GB designation.
