Leaked pictures are most likely of Radeon RX 480 Nitro, unfortunately, at the moment we don’t know much about it, but you should expect raised factory clock speeds and custom printed circuit board. It will be available in the version of 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.
The cooling system used in Radeon RX 480 Nitro was also used for others GPUs from manufacturer such as Radeon R9 Nitro 380X, although this one is looking slightly modified. The manufacturer used aluminum radiator with a number of heat pipes and two large fans. The whole was hidden under a silver shroud and on the back LED illuminated Sapphire logo (backlight mode may vary depending on the load or core temperature).
The launch of Radeon RX 480 is scheduled for June 29.
