Reviewed: AMD RX 480 - Specifications Featured

The 8GB of GDDR5 seems generous for a mid-range card but at the price point we were really happy to see it. The height of the card is basically the same as the PCIE slot-plate which is worth noting as most non-reference coolers are taller. 

The full specifications of the AMD RX 480 are listed below.

Physical Appearance & Build Quality

This was a reference sample and didn't come in a retail box so we can't talk about the packaging, driver disk or accessories. The build quality of the reference sample was good, it ran quiet with a sensible default fan profile. The output connectors all felt solid and worked as they should have, the power connection felt secure and was easy to access. Whilst the reference design doesn't have the bells and whistles of the ASUS STRIX, Gigabyte G1 or MSI Gaming series of cards, it worked as advertised and was 100% stable in our testing (non-overclocked). With all of this in mind, we didn't find any faults or reasons not to like the build quality or appearance of the reference RX 480.
