Radeon RX480 Gaming X is equipped with copyright cooling TwinFrozr VI, which MSI claims runs 35% quieter and 20% cooler than the stock cooler (both NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 are also based on same cooler). When you’re not gaming, the card can operate completely silently by stopping the fans entirely if the operating temperature falls lower than 60 degrees Celsius. We are dealing here with a massive heat sink, some nickel heat pipe and two fans. On the reverse side of the PCB you will find aluminum backplate. It features custom PCB with 8-pin power connector and 4+2 phase design for better Overclocking support. At the moment, no details on frequencies. For display, it includes DVI-D, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 3x.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not yet revealed the release date and of Radeon RX 480 Gaming X. It is worth mentioning that at the moment only ASUS, Sapphire and PowerColor has unveiled its custom variants of Radeon RX 480.
