Radeon Rx 480 GPU
- Price 649 USD
The AMD R9 RX-480 is one of the best upgrades to be released ever for gaming! Featuring the latest Polaris GPU with 2304 stream processors and 8GB of 8000MHz GDDR5 memory this small and low power card packs a very powerful punch. It competes with heavy weights such as AMD R9 390X but consumes far less power having just a 110W TDP and a single 6-pin power connector.
This means the RX-480 is a superb card for those who are still gaming on cards a few generations old as this card offers a vast leap in performance whilst not requiring a power supply upgrade. Also jam-packed with features such as full DX12 readiness, VR Ready and the latest GCN architecture this amazingly powerful, quiet and low power card will only get more and more powerful as AMD release further driver updates, meaning this card is a great upgrade that will last years to come. OcUK now stocks several monitors that support Freesync from as little as around £100, which when combined with the RX-480 give the most fluid gaming experience with no stuttering or tearing, just silky smooth graphics.
Absolutely ideal for 720P and 1080P gaming on all the latest titles with maximum visual settings such as Doom, Unreal Tournament, Hellblade, Fifa 17, Mafia III, Watch Dogs 2, TitanFall 2, Battlefield 1, Dishonored 2, Halo Wars 2 and Ghost Recon. The RX-480 can even manage gaming comfortably at 1440P (2560x1440) which demonstrates truly how powerful this card is, yet it features such a low price point and is a great upgrade for pretty much any PC with a 350W or greater ATX power supply. Should Half Life 3 ever be released, the RX-480 will be the perfect gaming card!!!
