AMD launches the Radeon RX 480

After a few weeks of rumors AMD has finally launched the eagerly-awaited Radeon RX 480 video card. As expected this device is based on the Polaris 10 GPU, which is also known as Ellesmere. The card is now available in two versions – with 4 GB or 8 GB of VRAM.

The Radeon RX 480 features stream processors on the Graphics Core Next 4 architecture (also known as Polaris) that run at 1266 MHz. The card is equipped with GDDR5 memory that runs at 8000 MHz and that enjoys a 256-bit memory bus. The performance level sits at 5.8 TFLOPS, while the TDP of the card is 150W. The RX 480 comes with 2.8 times better energy efficiency than the older Radeon R9 300 generation, supports the latest HDR technology and meets all VR requirements.

The 4 GB version of the RX 480 now sells for USD 199, while the 8 GB model is a bit more expensive at USD 229.
