Gigabyte 8GB G1 GAMING RX480 AMD Graphics Card with WINDFORCE 2X
8GB Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 GAMING, 14nm Polaris, PCIe 3.0, 8000MHz GDDR5, 1290MHz GPU, 2304 Streams, 3xDP/HDMI/DVI-D
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System
The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes, heat-pipe direct touch GPU, 90mm unique blade fan design, 3D active fan with LED indicators, stylish metal back plate, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System: Fans
90mm Unique Blade Fan Design
The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.
3D Active Fan with LED Indicators
The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System: Heat Pipes
The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
3 Heat-Pipes Direct Touch
The pure copper heat pipes are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the GPU.
16.8M Customizable Colour Lighting
With 16.8M customizable colour options and numerous lighting effects, you could now choose the right scheme for your gaming rig through XTREME Engine utility.
• Cycling: Smoothly cycles through all colours.
• Breathing: Fades in & out of chosen colour.

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.
