AMD RX 480 8GB to cost $229 and reportedly supports high overclocks

 

AMD RX 480 8GB to cost $229 and reportedly supported overclocks as high as 1607MHz on the AMD reference design, which is a 300MHz+ overclock if the previously leaked 1266MHz stock clocks are correct. 

The new pricing information comes from AMD Poland, who confirmed that the 4GB model of the RX 480 will cost $199 and that the 8GB RX 480 8GB model will cost $229. This is great news as a lot of PC gamers were expecting a much larger price premium for the 8GB model.

Yesterday we reported that a member of OCUK staff had stated that the AMD RX 480 will have a reference only launch, meaning that all AMD RX 480 GPUs will have the AMD reference coolers that can be seen in the images above and below when it launched on June 29th. 

When asked whether there will be aftermarket RX 480 GPUs at launch OCUK's Gibbo stated that AMD has delivered a great reference cooler for their Polaris GPUs, offering quiet operation, great thermal performance and a "great" aesthetic.

 

  No custom stuff, ref. only which in my view is fine as AMD nailed the cooler this time, it looks great, is quiet and performs.

Right now, if recent leaks are to be believed, the RX 480 will deliver performance that is similar to a GTX 970 in 3DMARK, though at this time we do not know how well this GPU will fare when playing different games or using different benchmarks.

Because the stock blower will totally be capable of reliably cooling any increase in the clock..Quote

Regardless whether the stock cooler is capable or not, this card has got to be tempting quite a few people about now!.

I wonder why the card is clocked 400mhz lower than that if the stock cooler can handle it. Obviously 1600mhz would mean the cooler is at 100% and the card is running fairly hot, but surely 1400mhz would've been reasonable.Quote

I'm very very tempted to buy 2 of them but I must resist until the NDA is lifted so we know that UK pricing will be and the reviews come out.

Gibbo at OCUK is expecting high sales of these cards maybe he knows something we do not Quote
