SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 is fully VR-ready, so you can embark on virtual adventures knowing that your experience will be smooth, wonderfully immersive and entirely stress free. Premium VR doesn’t need to be expensive!
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.
Revolutionary FinFET 14 nm technology empowers the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 graphics card to operate efficiently with low power consumption, staying cool and quiet. Great performance per watt results were achieved thanks to a multitude of custom AMD enhancements applied on top of a tiny Polaris chip.
Buckle up for world-class performance with all next-gen APIs. Powered by the 4th generation of Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture featuring asynchronous shaders and an enhanced geometry engine, you will see massive performance boosts in games that use DirectX 12, Vulkan, OpenGL and OpenCL. Combined with a full 8 GB GDDR5 memory, you are guaranteed superior performance in future games.
“DirectX® 12 will be a transformative experience for millions of gamers, and it’s important that hardware vendors like AMD have a 360-degree view of the issue.”
Featuring a brand new display engine, the Radeon™ RX 480 graphics card is ready to power the new generation of HDR displays, content and the future of gaming. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays.

SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95 mm blades means greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. With NITRO Free Flow, we’ve redesigned the airflow of the entire card and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.
In traditional graphics cards cooling design, some of the hot air hits the side case of the chassis and bounces back to the fan inlet, increasing the working temperature over time. Now with the NITRO Free Flow, that hot air is pushed out through the vents on the backplate, reducing the bounce back effects to minimum.
Two 95 mm fans with advanced airfoil section blades provide more powerful yet quieter cooling versus smaller standard fans. With dust-repelling dual ball bearings, Dual-X offers exceptional reliability.

SAPPHIRE’s new Fan Check system allows you to check the cooler’s status and immediately contact customer support in case of problems. To resolve a specific fan issue, SAPPHIRE’s Fan Service provides a quick and easy solution.
If there’s a fan problem, you don’t have to return the entire card – SAPPHIRE or our channel partners will send out a replacement fan directly to you! SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 fans use our Quick Connect system. That means they’re easy to remove, clean and replace, with just one screw holding them securely in place.
Enjoy complete silence under light workloads with entirely passive cooling. No spinning fans means no distractions while you work or chill.
With the new NITRO Cool Tech you can set precise start and stop temperatures for your card’s fans, to smartly balance performance against fan noise.
The graphics card is more than just another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art.
You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s Overclocking Utility TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series card. You can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, GPU Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.
The all-aluminum backplate provides additional rigidity that guarantees nothing bends and dust stays out. It also helps cool your card by increasing heat dissipation.
