SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 480 NITRO 8GB
Pictures of first custom Radeon RX 480 have emerged. The new Sapphire NITRO card features brand new silver cooler shroud, packed in dual-slot and dual-fan design. The side of the card features LED illuminated Sapphire logo. According to the source, the colors will change depending on the fan speed, GPU temperature or custom-profile configured by the user.
Most Radeon RX 480 cards that will be released on June 29th will be equipped with 8GB GDDR5 memory. 4GB models are also expected, but availability of such cards will depend on AIBs.
According to our information, some european stores already received their stock, and they are ready to sell Polaris 10-based graphics cards. In China a company called Dataland (Chinese PowerColor brand), was already selling places on reservation lists.
Meanwhile some reviewers already have their cards for tests, so we expect to see a lot of leaks in the coming days.
SAPPHIRE RX 480 Reference design
Additionally, the render of Sapphire’s own RX 480 reference design was also revealed. It appears that the front shroud will be painted in white, while the back will receive a fancy backplate. The Radeon side logo will be replaced by Sapphire’s.
