At Computex 2016, AMD announced the launch of its Radeon RX 480 VR ready Graphics card just for $199. It will be available in both 4Gb and 8Gb VRAM, so 8Gb variant will go on sale for $229. The Radeon RX 480, which uses silicon Polaris 10 (Ellesmere) manufactured at 14nm FinFET where they hide 2304 Stream Processors (at an unknown speed) that can be selected with 4 or 8 GB of memory GDDR5 maintaining a demure TDP of 150W, which is it will be powered through a single PCI-Express 6 – pin connector. The memory on the Radeon RX 480 graphics card is clocked at 8 GB/s which gives us a total of 256 GB/s bandwidth on the graphics board along a 256-bit wide bus interface. In terms of performance, it would stay near the GeForce GTX 980, although its performance will be even better under DirectX 12 titles.

Now a new screenshot confirmed that it will be clocked at 1266 MHz (with 1266 MHz it has performance ~5.83 TFLOPs). The clock speed is not surprising, but we will see custom variants with high-frequencies.

The screenshot has been taken TechPowerUp, shows that AMD Radeon RX 480 features a core clock of 1,266MHz. At the moment we don’t know that, whether its the clock frequency or they tweak it before. But we can assume that Radeon RX 480 could feature a great OC potential due.
