AMD Launches the VR-ready Radeon RX 480 Graphics Card


Today AMD launched the Radeon RX 480 graphics card designed to deliver enthusiast-level gaming performance and features, and a value proposition to gamers around the world.

The Radeon RX 480 introduces new technology engineered to deliver greater performance/$, democratize VR and deliver a wide range of future-proof technologies supporting current and forthcoming game and video standards.

The cards will start at SEP $199 USD for the Radeon RX 480 4GB card, and SEP $239 for the Radeon RX 480 8GB card.

The cards are based on AMD's new Polaris architecture and they are produced using 14-nm FinFET process technology. The Polaris 10 GPU on AMD's Radeon RX 480 graphics card isn't a high-end monster like the GP104 chip powering Nvidia's first 16-nm FinFET cards, though. Instead, the RX 480 puts a $200-and-up price tag on VR-ready performance.

Launch Price $239 $199

The Polaris 10 GPU on the RX 480 will run at 1120MHz base and 1266MHz boost speeds. Expect AMD's board partners will push those reference numbers up a bit as part of their usual process of tweaking and tuning. At those stock clocks, this card has a rated board power of 150W.

AMD is giving its board partners freedom to adjust GDDR5 speeds, but it's set a 7 GT/s floor on the speeds those vendors can use.

The RX 480 has three DisplayPort 1.3 ports and an HDMI 2.0b port with HDCP 2.2 support. The DisplayPorts are DP 1.4-HDR-ready, too.
