AMD RX 480 Powered Gaming Desktops Up for Sale for As Low As $750
New gaming desktops with AMD’s $199 Radeon RX 480 graphics card are finally up for sale in the market. Some of the desktops are priced under $800 which is largely because of the low price of the GPU, but that doesn’t mean the RX 480 is a slouch.
The first Polaris based card delivers performance comparable to Nvidia’s pricier GeForce GTX 970, which is a giant generation leap thanks to the latest 14nm FinFET process technology. The card is positioned as the most affordable premium VR as well as 1440p gaming solution.
Featuring this amazing piece of hardware are a number of desktop PCs which have started hitting shelves a month after the GPU was unveiled.
The CyberPowerPC Desktop is one of the first desktops to feature the Radeon RX 480. Available for purchase over at Best Buy for $849.99, this desktop packs the 8GB RX 480 paired with an eight-core AMD FX 8320 CPU, and 16GB DDR3 RAM.
