We have just seen the Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 GAMING, and now it is the turn of another heavyweight contender, the Asus Strix Radeon RX 480.
Asus Strix Radeon RX 480 makes an appearance In Pictures
The next-generation graphics card from AMD Radeon starts with the RX 480. You can certainly expect ROG Strix to join the party. ROG Strix RX 480 will be featuring the new Polaris 10 XT at the core based on a new 14nm FinFET fabrication node (previously 28nm) to bring you a new level of performance with less heat. The GPU (grahics processing unit) is paired with 8GB of GDDR5 video memory operating at 8GHz on the 256-bit memory bus.
Like the Gigabyte model, frequencies are unknown, but we can intuit a Overclcoked frequency supplied through 8 – pin PCI-Express connector. The graphics card also makes use of the monolithic cooling solution consists of a dense aluminum radiator that crossed by a fairly thick copper heatpipe and configuration of three fans to cool those heatpipes. The graphics card has an aluminum backplate to strengthen the PCB and to improve temperatures, backplate features RGB LED lighting.
All custom models we’ve seen to date, comes with standard video output as DVI along with DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0.
