AMD announced its Radeon RX 480, the most powerful graphics card in its class, because with a price of $ 199 it will allow us to access fashionable Virtual reality, thanks to its 5 TFLOPs power, with which we can form a team of high-end performance for less than what NVIDIA offers. In official slide AMD showcased that two Radeon RX 480 outperform GTX 1080 while saving $300. The Radeon RX 480 clocked in 62.5FPS, while the GTX 1080 was a bit lower at 58.7FPS. Koduri also proudly pointed out that the dual-RX480 system only reached around 50 percent of its computing capacity, while the NVIDIA card was maxed near 100 percent.

The AMD Radeon RX 480 consists of 36 CUs (2304 Shaders Processors) connected to 4GB / 8GB of GDDR5 memory access memory interface of 256 – bit gives us a power of 5 TFLOPs. The AMD Radeon RX 480 would be fed by a single PCI-Express 6 – pin connector (so power consumption would be limited to 150W TDP) compared with the GeForce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980, full support for DirectX 12 API with Async Compute, 1.4 and DisplayPort connectivity, full HEVC and HDR monitor support. Concerning the design, its an old fashioned blower fan design. Its launch will take place at the end of the current month.
