And we are back with more information about AMD Radeon RX 480. This time we look closer to the highly anticipated graphics card from AMD camp without mounted cooling system, which lets us see Polaris 10 silicon in all its glory powered by 6 – phase VRM requires a single PCI-Express 6 – pin connector. On the other hand, thanks to the Newegg store, we know that a reference model such as the VisionTek Radeon RX 480 has a base clock of 1120 MHz and boost clock 1266 MHz.

As can be seen, the cooling system is very simple. A small aluminum Heatsink with a copper base positioned above Polaris 10 GPU core, also the Blower-Style fan is attached to an aluminum plate that is vital to reduce the temperature of the memory chips  (signed by Samsung), the VRM and other components.


There were some rumors that AMD may choose to permit  reviewers to post their benchmarks sooner than June 29th, yet clearly this is not valid as both HardwareLuxx and NordicHardware affirm that their reviews will be posted on June 29th:

For the final tests also an appropriate driver is missing us – but in any case not expected before June 29 with the first values of us.

Radeon RX 480 will be launched on June 29th and while waiting for a detailed review here on NordicHardware you can find previous reports on the graphics card in the news below.
