MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G

Evolution is here! The 14nm Polaris manufacturing technology shifts the limits of efficiency, performance and size. The AMD Radeon RX 480 in a non-referral version MSI X Gaming is a hot new brand and one of the first carriers of the Polaris chip.. Sufficient computing power allows you to fully enjoy virtual reality , with half the power consumption of the new architecture and being half the size of existing products.

Key features

  • The latest architecture with lots of new technologies
  • Unbeatable price / performance ratio vs. competition - especially the GeForce GTX 960 and 970
  • Sufficient performance for smooth play of current and future games
  • Full support for DirectX 12 and Vulcan
  • Non-referral version from MSI with better cooling and factory overclocking
  • Ready for virtual reality
  • HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3 handle 4K image transfer at 60Hz

Virtual reality within range

The impressive and absorbing experiences of this year's virtual reality (VR), have so far been the prerogative of precious high-end cards. AMD, with the Radeon RX 480 model, aims to get as many customers as possible with this technology, and thanks to a favourable price tag, it can do so. The GPU itself is powered by 8GB of GDDR5 memory. With a computing power of more than 5 TFLOPs , this piece can be equal to Pascal's competing NVIDIA chips, which are two times more expensive.

Disrupted Gaming Edition

The card has a new version of the Twin Frozr VI cooler, which is renowned for its excellent efficiency. Thanks to its patented TORX fan technology, it generates up to 22% more air pressure, yet it keeps a minimum of noise. A huge 8mm copper heat pipe for optimal heat transfer from a square nickel base and a premium thermal paste X keeps the card cool. The smart feature also turns off the fans at low load when you're not playing .

Leading both in resolution and frame rates

Boasting excellent connector equipment, in addition to upgraded HDMI 2.0b ports that handle 4K at 60 frames per second, there are two DisplayPort connectors in version 1.3 on the back. The enhanced interface can handle up to 5K ( 5,120 × 2,880 pixels) or 8K ( 7,680 × 4,320 pixels) at 60 frames per second. There is FreeSync support for smooth images and HDR for great colour results. The Polaris architecture also takes H.265 acceleration in its stride, to 4K resolution and even at 60 frames per second .

  • Not sure how to choose the right graphics card? It depends primarily on its intended use and the type of interface of your motherboard. Specify the desired parameters of the graphics card and we will help you to choose the right one.
