Yesterday, we received a surprise delivered by a special courier – the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card! This is one of the first few Radeon RX 480 graphics cards in the country. W00t!
The detailed information on this card is under embargo, as are any benchmark results that we may get. But we were told that it’s okay to post pictures. After all, Raja Koduri, Senior Vice President and Chief Architect of the Radeon Technologies Group, publicly revealed the AMD Radeon RX 480 earlier this month!
So this is our hands-on preview of the actual working card. The real deal. The genuine muffin. Yes, for all of you to drool over until launch day. 😀
ALERT : We will have more on the AMD Radeon RX 480 at 9 PM tonight (June 29, GMT+8).
AMD Radeon RX 480 Hands-On Preview Video
Right after we received permission to post pictures of the Radeon RX 480, we created a hands-on preview video. Basically, a quick look of the card with our narration of its key features.
We didn’t think it would be a problem since a video offers (arguably) lower resolution views of the card than actual pictures, and the details we revealed had already been posted earlier.
Unfortunately, we received a request to take off the video, “because they are not pictures“. So while we technically did not break the NDA, we unlisted the video pending a request to reinstate it. It will be up as and when we get AMD’s go-ahead.
Updated : The video is now available for viewing!
AMD Radeon RX 480 Up Close
The next best thing we can do right now is take photos of the card to show you. Enjoy!
AMD Radeon RX 480 Size
For those already measuring their cases to see if the AMD Radeon RX 480 will fit, we measured the card and added the measurements for your convenience.
As you can see, the Radeon RX 480 is “technically” a 7″ long card, but its cooler extends 6.7 cm or 2.65″ beyond the card.[adrotate banner=”5″]
