XFX to offer RX 480 with 1328 MHz clock
XFX is preparing two or three RX 480 cards for launch, all equipped with reference cooler. The so-called Black Edition OC (RX-480M8BBA6) will feature backplate and factory-overclocked configuration to 1328 MHz (this card is also bundled with DisplayPort to DVI-D adapter). The second XFX Black Edition model (RX-480M8BFA6) will ship with slightly lower 1288 MHz clock, which is still 22 MHz above the specs. Here are some pictures of this card:
XFX RX 480 Black Edition OC was tested by a member of Baidu, who took it for a spin with Fire Strike, Fire Strike Stress Test, GTA 5 and some Chinese MOBA I don’t recognize.

Now let’s look at the leak from TechPowerUP forums. User named gasolina posted some very interesting stuff there. Starting with Fire Strike. GPU score at 1266 MHz (stock) is 12779 points. At 1330 MHz we get 13403 points, so both scores are close to our estimation.
Let’s move on to SteamVR benchmark. According to AMD, Radeon RX 480 scores 6.3 points in this benchmark. Meanwhile ‘gasolina’ achieved 6.8 points at stock and 7 points with some overclocking (1315 MHz). So it means that Radeon RX 480 is no longer just VR-capable, but also VR-Ready.
