INTELLIGENT GRAPHICS CARD FANS
GIGABYTE 480 Unique Fan Blades
The RX 480 airflow is spilt by it’s triangle fan edge, which is then guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the GIGABYTE GAMING X 480 airflow by 23% over traditional fans.
DIRECT TOUCH GPU COOLING
Heat Pipes Help With Cooling the GPU
The G1 GAMING 480 features Direct Touch technology. This tech as seen above utilizes heat pipes made of pure copper and are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the RX 480's GPU so they can carry generated heat away from your GPU. This keeps your gaming and media going for longer and displaying as smooth as can be.

RX 480 GPU COPPER PIPES
Composite Heat-Pipes Embedded 480
Through a combination of thermal conductivity and phase transition the Gaming Radeon RX 480 efficiently manages the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces - which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
USEFUL AND STYLISH GPU LED
Added Style of the RX 480 Card
When it comes to the LEDs featured on the G1 GAMING they are there for both style and convenience. Firstly, the GIGABYTE logo will simply make your graphics card and PC case (through ambient lighting) look that bit more suave and will follow whatever animation/colour instructions you have set it. Also, the ‘Fan Stop’ LED will provide the G1 GAMING 480's fan status at a glance by responding differently when the power supply is altered.

It's been a good start to the year for PC enthusiasts. Intel has unleashed the deca-core Core i7-6950X and Nvidia has served up a suitable partner in the form of the high-end GeForce GTX 1080. Handy, if you happen to have thousands of pounds to pour into your next PC, but for everyone else a more mainstream solution is needed to sate our appetites.
