RX 480 GPUs from Sapphire and Powercolor have been pictured, showcasing an AMD reference style design that looks a lot like AMD's R9 Fury X GPUs 

These GPUs from XFX will use the same reference style blower style cooler, which is perfect for OEM systems as heat is exhausted directly out of your PC chassis.

At this time, we do not know what clock speeds the RX 480 reference model will be running at stock, with leaked benchmarks hinting at a reference clock speeds of 1266MHz and leaked specifications of an XFX model suggesting a 1288MHz reference clock speed.    

Below is a table detailing the known specifications of the XFX RX 480 that was leaked yesterday, comparing them to AMD's R9 290X GPU, which is a GPU that should offer similar gaming performance if recent rumors are correct.

I want 2 8gb reference 480's so I can water block them i'm just getting the Moolah together then it's beans on toast for a couple of months . OFC it does depend on the reviews of the card once the NDA is lifted Quote

Hopefully we have a better launch than Nvidia's 1000 series which has had stock issues etc...Quote

I think that people should not hype up this much about this card, because it is natural to have this performance. It is not groundbreaking, in fact nVidia does it every year. The 960 is roughly as powerful as a 680, the 1060 should be around the performance of a 780ti,which would beat the RX 480. If the price of this card is around 300$, for the aftermarket cards that is, it won't that good of a choice as everyone thinks.Quote
