With the new FinFET 14 nm process and significant architectural improvements, the new chip is up to 2.8x more power efficient when compared to the R200 series.

Optimized for gaming in 1440p and stutter-free Virtual Reality, the SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 480 brings forth the power of 4th generation of Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. With the industry-leading asynchronous shaders implementation, enhanced geometry engine, increased caches and better DCC memory compression, efficiency is at the forefront of innovation in AMD’s new silicon.

The SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 480 features 2304 stream processors with the engine clocked at 1126 MHz. Future-proof performance is guaranteed by the full 8 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit wide bus clocked at up to 2000 MHz. This enables premium VR experiences at low power, with the Steam VR Performance test score of 6.3 (versus the 3.6 score achieved by the R9 380). The debut of Polaris-based graphics card further decreases the retail cost of the VR setup for the end user. It also means ultra-quality gaming in Full HD and 1440p with great performance using modern APIs like Vulkan and DirectX 12.

Thanks to the technology breakthrough of FinFET and the low power consumption that comes with it, the new SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 480 graphics card offers a new golden standard of power efficiency and work culture, while still leaving a solid headroom for overclocking. AMD-designed blower cooling remains quiet and dissipates the heat outside of the computer’s chassis.

New Polaris-based card also come with a slew of display engine advancements. SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 480 supports next-generation of displays that feature High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology. HDR expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown, making HDR-ready games and movies appear sharper, more colorful and vivid on a compatible display. The new Radeon™ GPU comes with support for HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4 to enable support for the latest monitors: 1080p [.]240Hz, 1440p [.]240Hz, 4K [.]120Hz, or even ultrawide 1440p [.]190Hz.

The Polaris chip features a hardware encoding/decoding for 4K recording using H.265 codec up to 60 FPS, making high-quality streaming and gameplay recordings a new reality with virtually no performance hit.

The SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 480 (sapphiretech.com | sapphirenation.net) is shipping now, and will be available from selected SAPPHIRE etailers and retailers worldwide.
