Product Overview RX480: Beyond HD Gaming - A Premium Choice for VR Experiences

Premium VR Experiences
Radeon™ RX 480 graphics cards with Polaris Architecture and AMD LiquidVR™ technology deliver beautifully rich and immersive VR experiences with advanced comfort and effortless compatibility with leading VR headsets.

Gamer Optimized
Powerful Async shaders and new geometry capabilities enable unique support for DirectX® 12 and Vulkan™ in the best version of Graphics Core Next yet. Get incredibly smooth and low-latency gaming at virtually any framerate with AMD FreeSync™ technology. Stream and record your favourite games up to 4K, H.265, 60 FPS with virtually no performance impact.

"Future Ready" Technologies
Polaris architecture precisely combines the latest FinFET 14 process technology and AMD's advanced power, gating and clocking technologies to deliver a superior cool and quiet gaming experience. Enjoy gaming features that dynamically optimize sound volumes based on actual temperature and workloads. Watch strikingly sharp, colourful, and vivid HDR-ready games and movies thanks to a brand new display engine and HDR-ready capabilities.

Game-Changing Control
Push your hardware to the limits with Radeon™ WattMan (formerly AMD Overdrive™) for a whole new level of customization and per state control over clocks, voltages, and temperature3. Radeon Software drivers enable the ultimate in performance, features and stability and will improve with future up-to-the-minute enhancements, updates and optimizations. Features AMD Eyefinity Technology

Run multiple displays from a single graphics board and expand your gaming field of view across all displays.

GCN Architecture
A new design for AMD's unified graphics processing and compute cores that allows them to achieve higher utilization for improved performance and efficiency.

AMD App Acceleration
AMD App Accelerator creates a "co-processing" environment in which the compute processing potential in your AMD Radeon™ Graphics processor works together with the system central processor, to accelerate enabled applications.

AMD HD3D Technology
Supports the latest stereoscopic 3D content and display technologies. Play 3D games, watch Blu-ray 3D videos, and edit 3D photos on your 3D Monitors, TV, or projector.

AMD CrossFire™ Technology
Multi-GPU support offers superior scalability. Increase our gaming performance up to 2x with AMD CrossFire™ technology, 2.75x for TriFire configurations, or 3.75x with QuadFire configs.

AMD HD Media Accelerator
Assumes rendering responsibility for HD encode (VCE)/decode (MPEG-4 ASP, H.264. MVC, MPEG2, etc.) and conclusively enable superior video playback quality with advanced hardware post-processing algorithms.

AMD PowerPlay™ Technology
AMD PowerPlay™ Technology dynamically adjusts clock speeds in response to GPU load, saving power for just when you need it.

AMD PowerTune Technology
Maximizes performance under load conditions by dynamically increasing the GPU engine clock to take advantage of unused TDP headroom. Also allows users to configure their own TDP limit, within a provided range, for even higher performance or more power efficiency.

PCI Express 3.0
Delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCIe Gen 2 for faster GPU.

Microsoft Windows® 7 Support
Comprehensive OS supports the latest Windows7 functionality and Driver support.**

Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology
GDDR5 memory provides the highest available memory bandwidth of any memory technology today, enabling higher GPU performance.

Gold PowerKIT
The Solidly-built Components enhance the stability, performance, efficiency and quality.

Double Blades Fan
The Double Blades Fan can absorb airflow into the centre and increase up to 20% airflow compared to the traditional thermal design. It also avoids dust deposition at the bottom of the fan that helps to prolong the life cycle of the graphics card.

HDMI
Integrated high speed HDMI output with 1080p 120Hz 3D Stereoscopic support, and 4K resolution display support.

Microsoft DirectX® 12
Get intense gaming performance and unrivalled image quality with stunning 3D visual effects, realistic lighting and lifelike imagery.

Mute Fan Technology
Providing noiseless environment and reducing the power consumption when the GPU temperature is low than 60°C.

UEFI Support
Better security by helping protect the pre-startup-or pre-boot-process against bootkit attacks and faster startup times and resuming from hibernation.

Virtual Super Resolution
Get quality that rivals 4K, even on a 1080p display while playing your favourite online games thanks to AMD's VSR.

RADEON VR Ready Premium
Delivering immense visual power and unmatched technological innovation, AMD's VR Ready Premium solutions set the bar for enabling premium experiences on high-end VR games, entertainment, and applications.

FreeSync Technology
AMD FreeSync™ technology puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.

Vulkan™
Next-generation API support for high-performance real-time graphics. Taking the best and brightest parts of Mantle to serve as its foundation, Vulkan™ is going to be one new and uniquely powerful graphics API.
