Several more RX 480's appear

An astute reader spotted several more RX 480's on Newegg, lacking clock speeds but providing physical dimensions, albeit with what looks to be a stock image.  All three cards seem to be dual slot designs, XFX's card measuring 10" x 5", ASUS' at 11.8" x 5.4" and Sapphire's a wide bodied 11.8" x 6.5". This could indicate a custom cooler or merely that the cards have rough dimensions listed as opposed to the exact size.

Unfortunately the comparison and details page is unavailable so we don't have a way to see the listed clock speeds but we can be sure that they will have three DP 1.2 ports and an HDMI out.  We will keep an eye out for any more leaks we can share with you.

Right, you're the guy that likes having that SLI Bridge of yours sticked where it belongs, and you came here to give PCPER readers Gayness lessons. I feel like you're disappointed because the card is not big enough for you, well don't be, size isn't everything. Cheers.

Useless remark from a useless person. Come back when you have something constructive to say, or else shut your mouth :-)

Aww, the little racist homophobic 10-year-old is back! I see you still haven't gotten over your pathetic need to justify your existence by becoming the saddest, most worthless example of a fanboy that I think I've ever seen - and I visit the WCCF comment threads.

I absolutely guarantee that if you weren't able to post anonymously, you'd be too afraid to post comments like this one.

I'm also completely certain that in person, you're a weak, frightened, callow shell of a person who's too afraid to stand up for anything - which is why you come to the PCPer comment threads and pretend to be some big, tough guy.

I wonder how long it will take to see some AIB RX480's?

June 22, 2016 | 05:39 PM - Posted by nanoflower (not verified)

Shouldn't be long. The rumors are they will be out within a few weeks of launch so some time in July.

Hope it won't take long. Not a 'fan' of blower style coolers...also need DVI output. Should be a ton of variations...from $199 4GB 6 pin to $300 8GB 6+8 pin beasts and everything in between...incl. water cooling.

Why do you want watercooling on a 150tdp card you fucking retard....

June 23, 2016 | 08:25 AM - Posted by John H (not verified)

Water cooling can help push clicks higher at any TDP. I had a radeon 9800 pro that would do 425 on air but 460 MHz on water. That card was way less than 150 watts.

And don't be a dick to your fellow human - you will need their help someday ..

Considering the infantile temper tantrum you're throwing over the mere thought of it, maybe he wants to do it for the lulz?

im not a fan of the blower style too but man that card looks sexy i love the design soo much

What I always find interesting about this is the RX 480 nukes nvidia's entire previous lineup aside from the titan and 980ti, the only place they are making any money atm given they have no 1080 or 1070s to sell.

Moreso the RX 480 undercuts everything they sell that isn't a 1070 or 1080 from a price to performance perspective.

Given this scenario, unless people are dumb enough to spend $350 on a GTX 970, instead of $200 on an RX 480 which I am sure there are quite a few of, Nvidia is going to have trouble finding something to sell that they can actually stock.

There's in Google's cache. Is that of interest?

It's all good, but they're all references,

Works fine for folks like me who already have an aftermarket cooler to transplant onto it, though. Sticking a 120mm AIO loop on this should be funnnn.

hdmi 1.4 or 2.0?

June 23, 2016 | 07:45 AM - Posted by Pixy Misa (not verified)

HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3/1.4.

June 23, 2016 | 07:53 AM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Yeah, pretty sure AMD confirmed that all new GPUs would support HDMI 2.0 and DP1.4, full support for HDR, HDCP2.2, etc.

June 23, 2016 | 09:06 AM - Posted by khanmein

everything is great on the spec but i got doubt with AMD driver.


36 ROPs

pixel fillrate - 40.5 GPixel/s

DirectX support 12(12_0)

where's 12(12_1) ???? i think 1440p will struggle.

Does anyone knows a site to buy this card where they ship worldwide? To be more precise, to Argentina. Thanks!

June 23, 2016 | 01:22 PM - Posted by Jeremy Hellstrom

Well, first it needs to be released ;)

June 23, 2016 | 04:16 PM - Posted by btdog

These look like Founder's Editions. If these are priced at $199, does that mean MSRP will be more like $150? :P

June 23, 2016 | 04:23 PM - Posted by Adeste Fideles

Since this is a very mainstream card will PCPER review it against the cards it's most likely to be replacing, and not just other current cards?

I've been hanging on to my 7950 for years now and now might be the time to finally upgrade!
