Boost Clock


Unlock the Potential of SAPPHIRE RX 480

Embedded into this SAPPHIRE 480 graphics card is their new NITRO Boost switch that increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance, to unleash the gaming performance of the card. Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHIRE NITRO 480 cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.


Longer Lasting, Noise Reduced GPU Fans

SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage for the RX 480 graphics card, at lower noise levels compared to standard cooling designs. These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.


Intellegent 480 Fan Control

With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards’ intelligent Fan Control III, the fans on the 480 card starts precisely at 52 degrees Celsius to smartly balance performance against fan noise.


Redesigned RX 480 Airflow

After finding the traditional axial fan design was resulting in a higher temperature build up over time SAPPHIRE are now utlizing NITRO Free Flow. With the RX 480’s NITRO Free Flow (NFF) SAPPHIRE redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat from the 480 GPU card.


Easily Upgrade and Clean GPU Fans

If there’s a fan problem with this RX 480 from SAPPHIRE, you don’t have to return the entire card – SAPPHIRE or their channel partners will send out a replacement fan directly to you! All SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 480 fans use this Quick Connect system. That means they’re easy to remove, clean and replace, with just one screw holding them securely in place.


Easy Setup for Virtual Reality Gaming

The SAPPHIRE NITRORX 480 gaming series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.


Stylish RX 480, Give it a Glow

This RX 480 SAPPHIRE graphics card is more than another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it performs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized GPU design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s award winning overclocking utility – TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO 480 gaming series card. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Card! As I bought this for a friend! I have played on there PC I built for them and it pretty much runs like silk. This GPU is a really nice card everything runs well on [email protected]! All the games run smooth.. have not tested on a higher resolution monitor. As it was a major budget build gaming rig! Under £500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What more could you want! Well if you want better than this then be prepared to pay 2-4 times more. Pros: Great price for the spec Does not cost an arm and a leg for decent gaming performance Good sturdy build quality The blue logo will look great if you have a clear side panel/case etc Cons: None so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic card, severely understated in the media. I purchased this card as my r9 280x2 was struggling with the latest titles. It couldn't wait for a Vega release. I installed it and began experimenting with various games, so here goes. GTA V 1080p ultra smooth as silk, lowest FPS I got was around the 60 mark, with 4k it was still smooth but did drop to 30fps with very similar settings, tessellation, and AA were turned off for 4k. Often sees 150fps in Doom at 1080p, and silky smooth gameplay in battlefield 1 as well. One of these cards is capable of 4K gaming at a standard level, with two cards, for less than a GTX 1080 I reckon 4k would be silky. Definitely worth a buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amd has taken back the budget king status This is an overall great gpu if you can't fork out the premium for an overpriced nvidia card. Stays a solid 60 degrees at nearly any fan noise and can power most modern games at high or ultra. However I would say that I haven't experienced it's full potential yet as lower end cpus can have a little bit of a bottleneck, such as the fx 4300 which I I have. Great overclocking headroom and before nvidia fan boys mention the gtx 1060, This card can outperform it from most of the benchmarks I've seen and from my own experiences. I'd highly recommended this card for people who simply can't fork out nearly 360 quid for a 1070 or 1080. This could in theory be very efficient at crossfiring. Overall great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and affordable Yeah its a great card that performs well for its price. The settings and additional software that come with the card are really useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from SLI GTX770. The power efficiency and performance compared to my SLI GTX770s was very refreshing. I've had no issues so far, and the GPU handles all the games I need it to perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card! Put this card into my new system with an FX-8350 and it works wonders as of yet. The card runs at about 70/80 in my rig, which isn't bad at all! The only downside to this card that I can think of is that it hasn't got a whole lot of overclocking room, but that's hardly needed in all honesty as I can play pretty much any game I want to at ultra with a decent FPS. Highly recommend this product; I'd even choose it over a GTX 1060 personally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card This was my first step to upgrade my PC, self built 3 years ago. Have read the reviews about this card and was not disapointed. Runs cool, idle 34, full use about 60 running Boinc. Fans run at low rpm when card is pushed. No problem running Doom and Fallout 4. Can't wait to pair this with Zen.
