Product information - Radeon RX 480 Red Devil, 8192 MB GDDR5The AMD Radeon RX 400 Series, designated codename "Polaris", is the first GPU series from AMD utilising the new 14 nm FinFET manufacturing process. Apart from the chip's hugely improved manufacturer process, as is the case for all graphics cards in the RX 400 series, the new fourth gen GCN architecture is put to work. AMD's new offering in the form of the Radeon RX 480 provides an affordable point of entry into the world of VR and a very high degree of efficiency to boot: Computational power of up to 5,8 TFLOPS with a TDP of only 150 Watts!
The Features of the Radeon RX 480 Red Devil Graphics Card from PowerColor
- Semi-passive triple-fan cooler
- 1.276 MHz GPU clock with "Silent Bios" activated
- 1.330 MHz GPU Boost Clock
- VRAM Clocked at 4.000 MHz (8.000 MHz effective)
- 1× 8-Pin Power Connector
Radeon RX 480: Virtual Reality for EveryoneThe PowerColor Radeon RX 480 Red Devil provides an imposing triple-fan cooler with Double Blade III fans with a special dual-bladed design along double ball-bearings thus allowing the RX 480 to be capable of overclocking to a boost clock of 1.330 MHz. The card comes with an alternative "Silent Bios" ready be activated at the push of a button. The card also possesses a 6+1 phase power supply with a 8 pin PCIe connector that offers a maximum throughput of 225 Watts, allowing even higher overclocks.
For the stabilisation of the card and for the even distribution of the heatsink's weight, the RX 480 Red Devil comes with a light cooling backplate on the rear of the PCB.
One of the declared aims announced by AMD for the Radeon RX 480 is to make Virtual Reality (VR) accessible to the widest possible number of players. Based on the Polaris 10 GPU (previously designated as "Ellesmere") the Radeon RX 480 fulfills this requirement and combines VR readiness with a comparably low cost of entry.
14 nm FinFET and a New Generation of GCN for the Radeon RX 480The new and improved 4th generation Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3) introduces new features, such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimised display engine as well as an improved memory controller. Counted among the newly-supported technologies are Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync Technology.
The new 14 nm FinFET manufacturing process as well as great leaps forward in frequency control, power saving and clock rate technologies make the Radeon RX 480 with its TDP of 150 Watts very energy efficient, especially when compared with its predecessors like the Radeon R9 390 (250 Watt TDP). The 14 nm technology enables more transistors to be accommodated in a smaller surface area, whilst simultaneously reducing energy requirements.
Displays can be connected via three Display Port inputs as well as a HDMI port. EyeFinity Technology allows up to four displays to be connected in a multi-display setup. The 2.0b HDMI port carries a 4K/UHD resolution signal at 60 Hz and permits the sending and receiving of encrypted signals using the HDCP 2.2 protocol (4K streaming, 4K Blu-Rays).
In order to reach the maximum potential of the card, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD or PowerColor websites.
