The Radeon RX 480 will be officially launched on 29th. It would be the most powerful graphics card in the mid – range market, maintaining tight balance between price and performance. According to leaked benchmarks its performance would be same as the GeForce GTX 980. For this reason, only in the United States, the stock of this graphics card arrives at a very large scale.
Radeon RX 480 Initial stock is 25 times larger compared to the GeForce GTX 1080
The initial stock of Radeon RX 480 in stores will be no less than 25 times larger than GeForce GTX 1080, In some USA stores they are limiting the maximum purchase to 1 unit per user to avoid out of stock issue.
The Radeon RX 480 will go on sale next June 29, but remember that on that day we will also see the launch of two other very interesting graphics cards. These are the Radeon RX 470, available in models of 8 and 4 GB GDDR5 memory and the Radeon RX 460 will be available with 4 and 2 GB memory. The existing stock of both graphics cards is yet unknown.
Unfortunately, here we are talking about the reference models. Custom variants will arrive in mid-July.
