XFX Radeon RX 480 Leaked Images; Huge Cooling Fans and LEDs
The GTX 1060 is about to launch in a few hours and people will be lining up to get the new budget GPU from Nvidia. Will it take the throne from the budget king The RX 480? We will find out soon enough. But for now we have images of the upcoming XFX Radeon RX 480. You can check out the pictures of the card here.
You know that heating problem people have with AMD GPUs? You are not going to have it with the XFX Radeon RX 480 because it comes with 2 huge fans that will keep the card running cool and quiet. There is also an XFX logo on the side of the XFX Radeon RX 480 which lights up. This will look really nice if you have a glass panel side cover.
Especially if you are going for a dual card CrossFire setup.
You also get a cool looking backplate on the XFX Radeon RX 480. The card is all black except for the XFX logo. This can be great if you have a black and white theme or an all black kind of look going for your PC build. But then again painting your GPU is not a huge issue these days and you can find plenty of DIY videos on YouTube.
The XFX Radeon RX 480 ditches the standard 6 pin power connector that was on the reference model and has an 8 pin instead.
This means more power and means that you can get more out of the card by overclocking it. It seems like the single 6 pin connector is in fact a limiting factor in the reference RX 480 design.
If you are in the market for a new GPU then the XFX Radeon RX 480 is a great option for you especially if you like black. But you will have to wait a bit as we do not have news about the release date of the GPU or how much the XFX Radeon RX 480 will cost.
