Local tech retailer, TECH Armory, just revealed the local pricing for the new AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card. They brought in the 8 GB model of the Radeon RX 480 from Sapphire and XFX. Unfortunately, the 4 GB model is currently not available.
Both the Sapphire Radeon RX 480, and the XFX Radeon RX 480 are being sold at RM 1,299 (~US$ 325), inclusive of the 6% GST. This is a 36% premium over the official price of the Radeon RX 480 (8 GB) graphics card of US$ 239.
Of course, the prices in Malaysia are always significantly higher than the official prices in the United States. The Palit GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070, for example, cost RM 3,099 (~US$ 775) and RM 1,999 (~US$ 500) – a premium of 29% and 32% respectively.
So is it worth getting the Radeon RX 480 (8 GB)? Or is it better to top up and get the GeForce GTX 1070? You decide.[adrotate banner=”5″]
