UPDATE: Did you miss the live event? No worries, see what trouble Ed and I got into with the recording embedded below!!

When it comes to GPU releases, we at PC Perspective take things up a level in the kind of content we produce as well as the amount of information we provide to the community. Part of that commitment is our drive to bring in the very best people from around the industry to talk directly to the consumers, providing interesting and honest views on where their technology is going. 

Though the Radeon RX 480 was released last month, based on AMD's latest Polaris, we are bringing in our first board partner. Ed Crisler, NA PR/Marketing Manager for Sapphire will be joining us in studio to talk about the RX 480 and Sapphire's plans for custom cards.

Please ask him why the card has such limited overclocking headroom.

July 28, 2016 | 04:36 PM - Posted by Justin (not verified)

Can you please ask him when these cards will be available and we can actually buy them? I don't mean when Newegg will get a batch of 25 cards that sell out in 5 minutes, but I mean actual quantity.

Are the power phases set up so it doesn't have the power draw issue the reference model had?

July 28, 2016 | 08:12 PM - Posted by Jimbo (not verified)

Omg Raja's going to be there!!!
I joke, you guys need to fix the second to last paragraph it says "What do you want to hear from Raja and me?" Should be Ed.

July 28, 2016 | 08:21 PM - Posted by Levis (not verified)

Yeah, I noticed that too. Is it just a typo or too much copy/pasting from old announcements? xD

July 29, 2016 | 12:51 PM - Posted by Arseni568 (not verified)

Hey
I'd like to know why they decided to put the 8-pin on the back instead of the side, it extends the card and looks weird (at least in cases with a basement and a pcie cable hole going up from it?

July 29, 2016 | 12:56 PM - Posted by romani taylor-hewins (not verified)

thanks for doing this it means a lot to us

July 29, 2016 | 12:58 PM - Posted by Arseni568 (not verified)

Btw what happened with the 16.7.3 drivers with the patch that limits memory overclocking?

Thanks, Ed/Sapphire and PcPer!!! This would be a great replacement for my RED MOD 280x thats on its way out the door... And although realistically I'm never gonna win one of these I still appreciate the great content!

July 29, 2016 | 01:22 PM - Posted by bg (not verified)

why is there no card over 1400 mhz from any AIBs. Is it Thermal limitation or too much power draw. Or not much performance Gain. Am just curious.
