ASUS Showcase their RX 480 Strix OC

 

ASUS has showcased their RX 480 Strix OC, which offers 15-20% more performance than AMD's reference design while also offering cooler and quieter operation.  

This new GPU will also come with ASUS' new DirectCU III RGB cooler and dual 4-pin fan headers, offering unique functionality that has never been seen before in such a low-cost GPU. 

Below we can see that the boosted clock speeds offered by the RX 480 Strix give this GPU a significant performance boost over AMD's reference version, allowing this GPU to provide much more playable framerates at higher resolutions and much higher benchmark scores.

This GPU will also feature ASUS' GPU FanConnect technology, adding two 4-pin GPU-controlled fan headers to the GPU which can be connected to system fans to provide targeted supplemental cooling for optimal thermal performance.

Right now we do not have an exact release date for the RX 480 Strix, but it is currently expected to arrive late July or early August. 

We have requested a review sample of this GPU from ASUS, so hopefully we can show you guys exactly how well this GPU performs when it becomes available.

No mention of clock speeds.

Meaning that they are probably running 1330 or so meaning any old custom 480 will be just as good but not cost silly money.

Edit. Read the click article. Wow, not a bad guess eh? that means the Powercolor Devil is clocked higher and will be faster and probably considerably cheaper @ £255.Quote

I think they are all going to be around the same so buy whatever you like the look of/whatever is cheapest.

At the end of the day Asus can't perform magic tricks to make their cards clock any higher than any other manufacturer, it's all about the lottery.

Which is why Asus should stop focusing on ridiculously large cards that cost so much. It's like a Rolls Royce with a bloody Fiesta engine in it !Quote
