ASUS ROG Radeon RX 480 STRIX-RX480-O8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -This gpu is awesome. I can play most games at 1440p on medium and high settings no problem.
-8gb ram, higher bandwidth to support more than 1 monitor and higher resolutions than 1080p
-Direct X 12, and freesync support.
-fans don't spin up until the GPU is in use.
-comes with free xsplit (only good for streamers)

Cons: -It does not allow MSI Afterburner to detect the temperature for OSD (on screen display) and Asus's GPU Tweak 2 is a terrible program compared to MSI Afterburner because it doesnt use R i v a T u n e r or its equivalent to show the OSD.
-Also the RGB LED does not sync up. Arua for the gpu and Arua for the motherboard. If only Asus can combine both Arua programs to work together so that the lighting affects can be the synced up to look better.
-yes I took off a star for these two issues.

Other Thoughts: -Do not get this GPU if you plan to only play games at 1080p
-This will be a 5 start review if ASUS fixed the two issues I listed in the Cons, the temp sensor and the Arua software.
-If I knew about this temp sensor/monitoring issue and Arua software issue I would of waited for a different version of this card like MSI or XFX to be in stock.
