Core Clock

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 Pukka Kit Great value for money - noticeable image improvement on all games. Recommended by Scan so its got to be good !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. Running this with an i7-6700k and it runs games like a dream. Games like Overwatch, Bf1, Fallout 4, LoL/Dota 2 and CS:GO will run perfectly on the highest settings. For the price i would say that this is a great starter card for people who want to experience great games at cheaper prices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful and works It was good to see how simple it was to connect it to motherboard and the light adds a great aesthetic feature because I have a window in my computer, overall works very well and I would definitely recommend that you get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than buying used This is a grate product that I would recommend Shame it cost a lot more than a reference model. But the backplate is a nice touch and Led's are good if you have a windoed case. The face it also only requires one six pin connector also very good. It's a shame it's on the bottom of the card rather than the side as this made cable routing not as atractive but I have not got a windowed case so not a problem. Also better value than buying a used card with all the latest features including dx12. I bought this due to owning a freesync monitor but am yet to really see any difference Also would have been nice to see a dvi port as not all people use hdmi/displayport. As for Scan can't complain offer a grate service and the fact they use DPD instead of Royal mail was very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs excellently for the price point Right out of the box, this card performs excellently compared to my old card, a HD 7870. GTA:V runs at near-max settings at 1680x1050 60 FPS, only dipping a little in complex, chaotic or expansive scenes, and totally playable. Temps can run a little high at around 80 C, so make sure the card's adequately cooled. No complaints about it - it does everything I need it to do at the price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capable GPU at a great price Great GPU that is more than capable of handling anything that I have thrown at it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the rx 480 is a really solid mid range card great value for money and very easy to install, some cables came with it which was very much appreciated, would definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good card I have no problem playing games on high settings in my build with a i3-6100 processor on a 1920*1080 monitor.
