Gigabyte Intros RX 480 G1 Gaming In 4GB & 8GB Memory Variants
Last month, AMD released the Radeon RX 480 based their latest Polaris architecture. But unlike Nvidia’s Pascal offerings which had numorous aftermarket custom cards announced at the same day, AMD’s flagship card was launched as a reference design only.
Recently, leaked images of PowerColor’s Devil version appeared online, followed by the release of Asus ROG Strix RX 480 a couple of days ago. Now, Gigabyte has announced the Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming however, we don’t know the full specifications of the card yet.
Gigabyte RX 480 G1 Gaming will arrive in two variants: the RX 480 G1 Gaming-4GD and the RX 480 G1 GAMING-8GD, which include 4GB and 8GB of GDDR5 memory, respectively. Though the company didn’t reveal the memory clock speed yet.
The RX 480 G1 Gaming features two different overclock profiles, OC Mode and Gaming Mode, but again we don’t know how fast the GPU will operate for either profile. The 6+2 power phase design will help adjust voltage for greater stability, while the smart power indicator warns you if there’s a power irregularity.
Further, the Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming features a dual fan Windforce 2X cooler with dual 90mm 3D Active fans delivering semi-passive cooling operation with fans shutting down under no load conditions. It also sports full-spectrum RGB illumination for gamers to choose from the right scheme for their gaming rigs with 16.8M customizable color options.
