When we look at Sapphires version of the RX 480 against the reference design, overall we prefer the Nitro+. The overall look of the card is better, in our opinion, much sleeker. We like the idea of easily replaceable fans and of course, any...

Well, when I first took a look at the reference RX 480 I saw newer DX12 titles really standing out and the card performing really well but coming in behind the GTX 1060 in the older DX11 titles. With the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro, this is still the case,...

As it has been discussed a lot lately, here are the results when you put the Nitro+ RX 480 against the GTX 1060 AMP! Edition from Zotac. According to AMD and Nvidia both reference models, based on price, reside in the same market; somewhere in the...

The Sapphire RX 480 Nitro OC+ has tons to recommend it, and indeed depending on which way your preference scales are balanced it will either rocket itself to the top of your list, or sit on the bottom with an asterisk.Clearly the one element of the...

As AMD's largest AIB partner, Sapphire has been making custom cards for quite some time now. There is not a lot left to innovate in this space anymore, so just about anything can be a point of difference. As a factory overclocked card, the Nitro+ RX 480...

Aesthetically Sapphire have done well with their Nitro+ cooling design, releasing an effective cooler which not only comes in a neutral colour scheme but also is easy to both clean and repair. Design wise the RX 480 Nitro+ OC looks like it will improve...

Over the last several weeks, we've devoted a lot of coverage to NVIDIA's latest graphics cards, but now it's AMD's turn to show us what kind of gaming horsepower we can expect in the $200-$300 range. Our introduction to Polaris comes courtesy of...

Price Currently, the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 OC is available from Overclockers UK for £249.95 including free next day shipping. To put this into perspective, the reference model which features a pretty sloppy cooling design costs £221.99. The additional...

The 4GB Nitro+ RX 480 is a damned fine and damned affordable version of an absolutely amazing graphics card. Sapphire’s setting the bar high for custom RX 480 models with this card’s quality and price—especially if achieving sky-high overclocks continues to be a pipe dream with Polaris, thus limiting it to higher-end custom...

International Review By Nexthardware on 100

Come sempre non possiamo che spezzare una lancia a favore di SAPPHIRE che, non è una novità, le schede video le sa sicuramente progettare e realizzare. La SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 480 OC 8GB è dotata di un look gradevole, aggressivo quel che basta ma senza...

International Review By Les Numériques on 60

Une carte overclockée qui fait un peu mieux que le modèle de référence dans les jeux, mais qui s'avère également plus bruyante. Dommage, le GPU étant maintenu à une température modérée, il serait sans doute possible de réaliser un meilleur compromis...

Como não chega a ser uma surpresa, a versão de 4GB de memória não fica muito diferente do desempenho que vemos das Radeon RX 480 com 8GB. Como o chip gráfico é basicamente o mesmo, não temos uma perda de performance nesse aspecto por ter menos...

Nakon testa memorije, nastavljamo s grafičkim karticama a ovaj puta je na redu prva ne referentna RX480 koju smo imali prilike probati i to još s 4 GB memorije. Referentna je RX480 ostavila gorak okus u ustima zbog visoke buke, visoke temperature i...

Llegó la hora de dar un veredicto sobre la nueva Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro, veremos si logramos cumplir las expectativas que teníamos con ese producto que desde el papel se veía bastante interesante.En cuanto al empaque vemos algo clásico de...

"Sapphire, con la RX 480 Nitro+ OC, ha svolto un ottimo lavoro nel personalizzare la scheda di AMD: temperature, rumorosità prestazioni ed estetica al...

Premiera Radeona RX 480 spowodowała spore zamieszanie na rynku graficznych. Oczekiwania względem tej karty były olbrzymie i choć jak pokazały testy najnowszy układ AMD nie do końca im sprostał to nie ma wątpliwości, że jest to konstrukcja dość udana i...

We reviewed the Asus RX 480 Strix Gaming OC Aura earlier this week (HERE) and I am impressed with their solution, even though I feel that at £289.99 inc vat it is a little expensive – it is after all encroaching into the same price point as many...

Nereferenční RX 480 je určitě lepší než referenční model a to tam, kde jsme čekali. Chlazení. Sapphire NITRO+ je jednou z méně okázalých edic s menším chladičem, ale je alespoň kompaktní velikosti. V režimu SILENT s takty kolem 1266MHz (nebo až 1306MHz)...

International Review By pctuning.tyden.cz on

Začneme tím pozitivním. V naší sadě testů zaostává z hlediska průměrného výkonu levnější přetaktovaná RX 480 za přetaktovanou 6GB GTX 1060 jen minimálně. S cenou je na tom ale o něco lépe a tak vychází z hlediska poměru cena/výkon jako o malinko...

International Review By Hardware-Mag on

Zunächst möchten wir aber kurz auf den AMD-Grafikchip eingehen: Die GPU-Variante „Polaris 10“ setzt auf rund 5,7 Milliarden Transistoren und kommt bei den Spitzenmodellen RX 480 und RX 470 zum Einsatz. Neben weiteren Architekturverbesserungen an GCN,...
