XFX's RX 480 GPU has been pictured, showcasing a beefed up PCB, power design, and a large aftermarket cooler. This GPU will even have user replaceable fans.  

This GPU should feature a factory overclock of over 1328MHz on the GPUs boost clock, exceeding the performance of AMD's reference RX 480 design. This GPU will also feature a full cover backplate, which is something that AMD's reference design lacks.

Power wise this GPU will use an 8-pin PCIe power connection, allowing this GPU to draw the bulk of its power from your power supply and not your motherboard, preventing any potential power issues, especially when combined with AMD's recent driver fixes. 

The cooler of this GPU will feature an all-black two slot design which is slightly taller than standard PCIe GPUs. The 90mm fans will be user replaceable, allowing this GPU to easily be repaired and cleaned by the user.

Right now we do not know the pricing or the release timeframe of this GPU, but we expect to hear more about this soon.
