AMD Radeon™ RX GTR 8GB with Hard Swap Black Edition - RXP8DBA6

We even offer different upgrade option for higher performance or color LED options for customization. Our bright XFX LED not only looks great and shows off your awesome rig, it also lets others know that this isn't some average off the shelf scrub computer, this is a hard core gaming computer powered by the best graphics card on the market. You play like a pro and your system looks just as AMD Radeon RX 480. If you want AMD Radeon RX 480 performance and want to keep your card cool as possible then use our Performance BIOS.

Check our RX Bios page for details. Custom XFX Aluminum AMD Radeon RX 480 Design Protects your GPU while providing additional cooling overall GPUs are one of the most important, complex and delicate peices of hardware in your computer and as a game, nothing is as important and the slightest bend can drastically affect the performance of your graphics card. Tiers 5 and 6 will have both RX prefixed and non-RX prefixed cards, indicating that while they will both feature a bit memory bus and be targeted at p gaming, the latter will fall short 1. Tiers 7 and 8 will each have a bit memory bus and will be marketed as p cards. The highest tier, tier 9, will feature a memory bus greater than bit and shall be aimed at 4K gaming.

Instead, specs-wise, the RX is merely solid; not extraordinary. There are 36 compute units and 2, stream processors running at a base clock AMD Radeon RX 480 of 1,MHz and a boost speed of 1,MHz. All this without a huge power draw; the RX is rated at just W. Interestingly, however, when you flip the Radeon RX over, you can see the circuit board itself is much shorter than the actual card body, measuring just 7 inches long. Given that, we wouldn't be surprised to see shorter versions of this card AMD Radeon RX 480 the months ahead. So, if the stock version of this card is too long for your current case, you may have more options soon.

Software If it's been a few years since you've owned an AMD graphics card or your hands-on experience stopped during the days of the ATI brandit's important to point out that the company has recently undertaken a major overhaul of its software. The functional but slow and largely text-based Catalyst Control Center is now gone. Back in November ofAMD replaced it with Crimson, a more visually appealing and in most ways easier-to-navigate application that's also much quicker to launch than the old Catalyst software was. We won't delve much into Crimson here, as it's now more than a year old. For a much deeper dive on Crimson, please check out this Crimson rundown story from our sibling publication, ExtremeTech. But with the driver revision for the Radeon RXwe are seeing one key change with Crimson, around overclocking.

The substantial software addition AMD is launching with the RX is a replacement for the old Overdrive overclocking software, which AMD Radeon RX 480 company is calling WattMan. Like Crimson, WattMan is much more visually oriented, with real-time graphs of things like clock speed, temperature, and fan speed. If you have a high-resolution display, it can give you a massive amount of info about your card and AMD Radeon RX 480 current settings from a single screen. You will need a 4K monitor to see it all at a glance, though.

At lower resolutions, we had to do some scrolling to see all of the graphs and settings. Above, you can see the top-most modules of WattMan; below is what we had to scroll down to see with the resolution at p.


The amount of data on display in WattMan will be appealing to tweakers and overclockers, and it is certainly a solid improvement over AMD's Overdrive software. But we'd like to see a more streamlined "easy" mode for novice users. And AMD Radeon RX 480 itself is pretty tough to find if you don't know specifically where to look. It's tucked into the "Global Settings" tab under the "Gaming" section.

If you didn't already know that the WattMan tab was meant for overclocking, it wouldn't be abundantly clear by name that this is where overclocking happens. It sounds more like a power-management utility, if you ask us. For details of our actual overclocking results, stay tuned after our main Performance section. After all, we can't tell you how well the card runs when overclocked without delving into its out-of-the-box performance first. But, sadly, there aren't any wholly reliable ways to test either quite yet. For VR, there are two major competing headsets, from Oculus AMD Radeon RX 480 HTC, with more in the pipeline, so it's impossible to say a card will run a given game the same way globally with one benchmark.


For DX12, we do have some real-world games to test with, but just a handful at this early stage, instead of an entire suite. Hopefully, in the future, we'll AMD Radeon RX 480 able to present comprehensive benchmark charts for DX11, DX12, and VR, but we're just not there AMD Radeon RX 480. Two out of three ain't too shabby, though! Fire Strike is a synthetic test designed to measure overall gaming performance, and Futuremark has expanded Fire Strike nowadays into three subtests. This results in less stutter in games running in the latest DirectX 12 framework. The cooling system consists of a single fan, which spins up to a decent whirr when under load. The DisplayPorts are of the 1. With HDMI® b, DisplayPort™ HBR3, and DisplayPort HDR2support, the Radeon™ RX graphics card will have you prepared for the new standard.
