When AMD launched their RX 480 graphics card last month they did so with a decent reference design and it was priced at a level which competed with the GTX 970. Since then the market has changed with the 970's replacement, the GTX 1060 being launched...

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,...

At CES 2016, we visited the AMD booth and got a peek at AMD's next generation GPU running on what they called “beta silicon” with an official name of Polairs. Fast forward to Computex a few months later, AMD announced the new card was ready and showed...

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 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...

Подводя итоги после знакомства с видеокартой Sapphire RX 480 NiTRO+ OC 8G , можно сказать следующее. Графический ускоритель получился довольно интересным и сбалансированным. Видеокарта хороша со всех сторон, она обладает хорошей производительностью в...

2016년 7월에 출시되었지만8월 중순~ 부터 국내에서 구매할 수 있었던 그래픽카드 입니다.출시된지 기간이 조금 지났지만 사용기를 작성합니다.디자인이 뛰어나며 AMD만의 Fluid Motion / FREE SYNC 지원합니다.운영체제(OS) WIN 8.1~10 / FREE SYNC 지원 모니터 사용시...

一方,2560×1440ドット解像度条件だと持ち直し,分かりやすい例で言えば,対GTX 1060 6GBで,NITRO+ RX 480 8GBは95~98%程度,NITRO+ RX 480 4GBは91~94%程度と,店頭価格差を考えればまずまず妥当な数字に落ち着いている。よくいえば「Beyond HD」な環境でこそ光る最適化が入っている,といったところか。GeForceに最適化されている「ファイナルファンタジーXIV:蒼天のイシュガルド ベンチマーク」(以下,FFXIV蒼天のイシュガルド...

Эталонную версию Radeon RX 480 — пока самой быстрой Polaris-видеокарты — представили 29 июня 2016 года. Конечно не обошлось без очень толстого слоя маркетинга. А именно PR-пропаганда AMD строилась на одной концепции: мы предлагаем вам самую быструю...
