    [News] ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Strix RX 480

    http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/asu...ix-rx-480.html

    Powered by the latest AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics processing unit (GPU), clocked at 1330MHz in OC mode, ROG Strix RX 480 delivers up to 15%-faster performance in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme and 19%-faster gaming performance than reference cards in Hitman and Doom.

    ROG Strix RX 480 is packed with exclusive ASUS technologies, including DirectCU III with a patented triple wing-blade 0dB fan designed to deliver maximum airflow for 30%-cooler and three-times (3X) quieter performance, and ASUS FanConnect, which features GPU-controlled fan headers to connect to system fans for targeted supplemental cooling. Industry-exclusive Auto-Extreme technology with Super Alloy Power II components ensures premium quality and reliability.

    ROG Strix RX 480 enables complete gaming system personalization with Aura RGB Lighting. A virtual-reality (VR)-friendly design with two HDMI ports lets gamers always keep a VR device and a monitor connected to their system for immersive gaming anytime. It also includes GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster for intuitive performance tweaking and instant gameplay streaming. ROG Strix RX 480 is equipped with ASUS DirectCU III cooling technology, which features direct-GPU-contact heatpipes that transport more heat away from the GPU, outperforming reference designs and achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance. DirectCU III technology includes triple 0dB fans, engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum airflow and improves static pressure over the heatsink by 105%, while operating at three-times (3X) quieter volume than reference cards.

    ROG Strix RX 480 also comes with ASUS FanConnect technology. When gaming, the GPU often runs hotter than the CPU, but chassis fans usually only reference CPU temperatures, resulting in inefficient system cooling. ASUS FanConnect solves this issue with two four-pin GPU-controlled headers that can be connected to system fans to provide targeted supplemental cooling for optimal thermal performance. All ASUS graphics cards are now produced using Auto-Extreme technology, an industry-exclusive, 100%-automated production process that incorporates premium materials to set a new standard of quality. Auto-Extreme technology ensures consistent graphics card quality as well as improved performance and longevity. This new manufacturing process is also environmentally friendly, eliminating harsh chemicals and reducing power consumption by 50%. Super Alloy Power II components enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, reduce component buzzing by 50% while under full load, and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs for enhanced quality and reliability.

    ROG Strix RX 480 includes ASUS Aura RGB Lighting on both the shroud and the backplate. This stunning illumination technology is capable of displaying millions of colors and six different effects for a totally personalized gaming system. ROG Strix RX 480 also has a VR-friendly design with two HDMI ports that let gamers connect a VR device and display at the same time, so they can enjoy immersive VR experiences anytime without having to swap cables.

    And heres the review

    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...RIX_OC/26.html

    For people expecting much higher overclocks.Nope.
    After a quick read.Asus strix after OC gives 3% more performance, vanilla 1060 gives 14% more performance after OC.
    I blame GF process for all this.

    Something tells me that for all RX 480s to shine equally they are going to need 8+6 pin connections, but word is from internal testing from a few manufacturers that the GPUs are comfortably reaching 1.43GHz with a single 8 pin connection. Time will tell, especially if the rumors of a revised 14nm finfet process and RX 480 core revision are true.
