The Radeon RX 480 is AMD's new high-end graphics card designed to transform your gaming. Built on the Polaris architecture and fabricated with FinFET 14nm process, this card delivers exceptional performance and efficiency to handle the latest eSports titles and the most popular AAA games. Async shaders and new geometry capabilities of the latest version of Graphics Core Next architecture enable unprecedented DirectX 12 performance. You can also experience a new level of immersion with the mind-blowing VR, powered by revolutionary LiquidVR technology. The latest Display Port 1.4 (DisplayPort 1.2 Certified, DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 Ready) and HDMI 2.0 outputs let you take full advantage of the latest 2K/4K high refresh-rate monitor. A host of advanced technologies offers you more ways to elevate your gaming experience, like HDR, 4K support, AMD FreeSync, Eyefinity, and etc.
This PowerColor card comes with a double-blade fan for efficient and quiet cooling, which stays silent when GPU temperature is below 60°C.
Radeon VR Ready Premium
Delivering immense visual power and unmatched technological innovation, AMD's VR Ready Premium solutions set the bar for enabling premium experiences on high-end VR games, entertainment, and applications.
Double Blades Fan
The Double Blades Fan can absorb airflow into the center and increase up to 20% airflow compared to the traditional thermal design. It also avoids dust deposition at the bottom of the fan that helps to prolong the life cycle of the graphics card.
Mute Fan Technology
Mute Fan Technology provides noiseless environment and reduces power consumption when the GPU temperature is lower than 60°C.
The solidly-built components enhance the stability, performance, efficiency and quality.
A new design for AMD’s unified graphics processing and compute cores allows them to achieve higher utilization for improved performance and efficiency.
Microsoft DirextX 12
Get intense gaming performance and unrivalled image quality with stunning 3D visual effects, realistic lighting and lifelike imagery.
Next-generation API support for high-performance real-time graphics. Taking the best and brightest parts of Mantle to serve as its foundation, Vulkan is going to be one new and uniquely powerful graphics API.
AMD Eyefinty Technology
Run multiple displays from a single graphics board and expand your gaming field of view across all displays.
Virtual Super Resolution
Get quality that rivals 4K, even on a 1080p display while playing your favorite online games thanks to AMD's VSR.
AMD FreeSync technology puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.
AMD App Acceleration
AMD App Accelerator creates a “co-processing” environment in which the compute processing potential in your AMD Radeon Graphics processor works together with the system central processor, to accelerate enabled applications.
AMD HD3D Technology
The graphics card supports the latest stereoscopic 3D content and display technologies. Play 3D games, watch Blu-ray 3D videos, and edit 3D photos on your 3D Monitors, TV, or projector.
AMD CrossFire Technology
Multi-GPU support offers superior scalability. Increase gaming performance up to 2x with AMD CrossFire technology, 2.75x for TriFire configurations, or 3.75x with QuadFire configs.
AMD HD Media Accelerator
It assumes rendering responsibility for HD encode (VCE)/decode (MPEG-4 ASP, H.264. MVC, MPEG2, etc.) and conclusively enables superior video playback quality with advanced hardware post-processing algorithms.
AMD PowerPlay Technology
AMD PowerPlay Technology dynamically adjusts clock speeds in response to GPU load, saving power for just when you need it.
AMD PowerTune Technology
AMD PowerTune Technology maximizes performance under load conditions by dynamically increasing the GPU engine clock to take advantage of unused TDP headroom. It also allows users to configure their own TDP limit, within a provided range, for even higher performance or more power efficiency.
UEFI Support offers better security by helping protect the pre-startup — or pre-boot — process against bootkit attacks and faster startup times and resuming from hibernation.
Integrated high speed HDMI output provides 1080p 120Hz 3D Stereoscopic support, and 4K resolution display support.
