SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 8G GDDR5 OC

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Gaming Series is the Smarter Choice for Gamers! It has been crammed with features. We went back to the drawing board to design a series of cards that exploit our proven expertise in the high-end graphics card arena. We also talked to community experts in the fields of e-Sports, Custom PC Building and Hardware, to ensure we created a new series of cards that excel in terms of performance, features and aesthetics. As a result, we’ve packed the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Gaming Series Cards with everything you need (and left out everything you don’t) to bring the very best gaming experience available for your budget.

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 is designed for high-quality 1440p gaming. It features a 4th generation Graphics Core Next chip with an improved geometry engine, increased caches and native asynchronous shaders. The NITRO+ RX 480 8GB version comes with 2304 GCN-based stream processors that run with a factory-overclock base clock of up to 1342 MHz The model comes with a full 8 GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 2000 MHz on a 256-bit interface.

SAPPHIRE opens a new chapter in the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Gaming Series with the introduction of the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480. By adding innovative technologies and user-facing features to the efficient Polaris foundations, SAPPHIRE puts gamers in a front-row seat for the next-gen graphics era. This new series of cards have been NITRO Charged for the Gamers!

NITRO Free Flow
We looked at the traditional axial fan design system, and found that the way it circulates the hot air back to the fan inlet resulted in a higher temperature over time. With NITRO Free Flow (NFF) we redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.

NITRO Glow
The graphics card is more than another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s Award Winning Overclocking Utility – TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series card. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.

NITRO Boost
The new NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of the card.
Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHRE NITRO cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.

VR Friendly
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.
The ports are HDMI 2.0b, the latest update, with an 18Gbps bandwidth, up to 32 audio channels, and is able to support 4K 50/60 resolutions like 2160P, whilst remaining entirely backwards compatible with older HDMI specifications.

HDR Ready
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a state-of-the-art technology for gamers and cinephiles that care deeply about the display quality of their TV or monitor. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays. HDR-ready games and movies played on an HDR display appear strikingly sharp, colorful, and vivid, with enhanced contrast and sophisticated nuance compared to even the most stunning SDR content.

Dual-X Cooling
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs.
These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.

Introducing AMD LiquidVR
LiquidVR™ is an AMD initiative dedicated to making VR as comfortable and realistic as possible by creating and maintaining what’s known as "presence" — a state of immersive awareness where situations, objects, or characters within the virtual world seem "real." Guided by close collaboration with key technology partners in the ecosystem, LiquidVR™ uses AMD’s GPU software and hardware sub-systems to tackle the common issues and pitfalls of achieving presence, such as reducing motion-to-photon latency to less than 10 milliseconds. This is a crucial step in addressing the common discomforts, such as motion sickness, that may occur when you turn your head in a virtual world and it takes even a few milliseconds too long for a new perspective to be shown.

AMD XConnect™ Technology
Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now it’s easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon™ graphics card. With AMD XConnect™ technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon™ Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt™ 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive—a first for external GPUs!
