AMD has just announced their new RX 480 GPU, a budget friendly GPU that packs quite a lot of performance for its mere £199 price tag. 

This GPU is designed to give PC gamers a lot of value out of their hard earned dollars and give them the ability to run VR applications without breaking the bank. 

  AMD's RX 480 will cost $199  

The AMD RX 480 will feature an R9 Fury X inspired cooler design which utilises a traditional blower cooler design, but should offer cool and quiet operation with an ultra low TDP and huge GPU efficiency gains.

This new GPU will come with a minimum of 4GB of VRAM, with 8GB in the high end, giving this GPU not just enough memory for today's games but enough for the next few years, offering FreeSync support and full DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 compatibility.  

In terms of raw GPU power, this GPU will have around 5.5 TFLOPS of GPU performance, making this GPU perfect for VR gaming.  

This GPU offers efficiency gains from using the new 14nm processing node but also through key optimisation in AMD's new Polaris Architecture, making this GPU 2.8x more efficient than previous generation AMD hardware.

AMD has also stated that moving forward that they want to make Crossfire much more usable, getting modern games to scale well and to offer consumers great value for money with Radeon GPUs. 

At the show, AMD was able to show dual RX 480 GPUs running at faster speeds than a Nvidia GTX 1080, while coming in at $200 less.

Awesome to see AMD being truly competitive. In fact, it's good to see that both companies are showing sizable leaps from the last gen.

Can't wait to find out what else they've got in store!Quote

$400 for better than 1080 performance? Damn... Although if they didn't show it in a live demo, then we will have to wait till more info gets released.

Don't really like the new naming scheme though. Gonna be RX 480 ->R 480 ->RX470->R 470 etc.. seems odd.Quote

Something that flew right over my head until just now.. RX480 will cost $199.. that's under $400 for crossfire.

What the hell is this then?

<$500?? Well yes! Where did the excess $100 come from.Quote

Probably including taxes and shipping... makes more sense to say $500 than $400 as some people may find it misleading.Quote

They were shown in demo along side the GTX1080 running Ashes, but as we discussed during the presentation Ashes scales really well in SLI/Crossfire under DX12.

You can't tell from the screenie but they were pretty much side by side with the RX being just a few frames behind. The proof will come later this month when we see it chewing some real games.Quote
