(UPDATE) AMD Radeon RX 480 Rumors, Part 2

Published: Jun 20th 2016, 14:29 GMT

New day and new leaks. This time however we have a proof that leaker is in the possesion of Radeon RX 480.

AMD Radeon RX 480 in 3DMark

The leaker posted 3DMark results of RX 480. The results seem to be quite close to our results: 5492 (stock?) and 5856 (OC?) in FS Extreme, versus ours 5708. The ultra GPU score is not visible, so we can’t compare it to our results. The overall score is 2708 points though.

The software used in this comparison is probably not fully supporting RX 480 yet, as Radeon Settings software shows incorrect clock speed.

We also get to see the first ‘temperature test’, but it’s hard to say what is exactly measured with this infrared thermometer. One reading is probably under load, while the other is at idle. More leaks to come soon.
