What is the AMD Radeon RX 480?

The RX 480 represented a massive shift in the world of VR gaming, managing to lớn become the cheapest graphics card that reaches the Recommended specification for Oculus Rift và HTC Vive.

However, since our original review, the market has changed somewhat. We’ve seen the arrival of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 & the AMD Radeon RX 470, which closely match the RX 480 in terms of performance và price.

What hasn’t changed is its performance: this is a stonking Full HD and 1440p thẻ for around £215.

AMD Radeon RX 480 – specs và technology explained

AMD has moved from its GCN (Graphics bộ vi xử lý core Next) 3 architecture lớn GCN 4, codenamed Polaris. It’s a fairly big shift in terms of the chip’s physical design. Gone is the 28-nanometer process used in the previous generation, to lớn be replaced by a 14nm process. This allows for a greater number of transistors on any given piece of silicon, but without resulting in an increase in power consumption và heat.

The 14nm process is more dense than the 16nm process of Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, used in the GTX 1070 & 1080, but since AMD hasn’t yet launched a GPU lớn rival either of these cards, direct comparisons on the effectiveness of this denser arrangement remains to lớn be seen.

Still, it means AMD has been able to lớn pack a huge amount of power nguồn into a GPU that will suit many smaller budgets.

It’s important lớn temper your expectations, though. This is firmly a mid-range graphics card, so any fancy new technologies are unlikely to lớn be found here. Instead, specs-wise, the RX 480 is merely solid; not extraordinary. There are 36 compute units and 2,304 stream processors running at a base clock tốc độ of 1,120MHz and a boost tốc độ of 1,266MHz.

All this without a huge nguồn draw; the RX 480 is rated at just 150W.

It’s capable of up lớn 5.8TFLOPs (trillion floating-point operations per second), which puts it very much ahead of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970, its closest rival at this price. However, TFLOPs figures don’t reveal the whole story and, as you’ll see from the benchmarks, a greater number of TFLOPs doesn’t equal superior performance.

The RX 480 is supported by GDDR5 memory, with some cards including 4GB và others getting 8GB. 4GB models cost £185, while 8GB units will be £215. The differences don’t end here: 4GB units will have memory capable of 7Gbps (gigabits per second) speeds, while 8GB will have up lớn 8Gbps.

Third-party manufacturers might choose a different GDDR5 specification in order lớn save money, but AMD guarantees that no thẻ will ship with a throughput that’s less than 7Gbps. It’s perhaps a little confusing, but isn’t a cause of worry; pricing and specs sheets will make it fairly clear what you’re buying.

We were supplied with an 8GB, 8Gbps card, & as a result can’t bình luận on the performance of the lower-specification models with any firm numbers.

The RX 480 also features asynchronous computing, meaning developers can assign tasks khổng lồ the GPU with differing levels of priority, but have them all undertaken at the same time. This results in less stutter in games running in the latest DirectX 12 framework.

AMD Radeon RX 480 – Design và Ports

There isn’t anything particularly notable about the RX 480’s design, but it’s a cut above the cheapest graphics cards around. There’s matte-black plastic around the sides & a dotted plastic finish along the bottom of the cooler. There’s no fancy backplate, but I wouldn’t expect that from a thẻ at this price.

The cooling system consists of a single fan, which spins up lớn a decent whirr when under load. You’ll probably want a fairly well-insulated case khổng lồ keep noise at bay, but it’s far from the loudest I’ve heard.

The RX 480 gets its juice from a single six-pin PCI Express power connector. There are three DisplayPorts and an HDMI port at the rear. The DisplayPorts are of the 1.4 specification, meaning that they’re ready for HDR gaming when titles và monitors begin to tư vấn the standard.
