Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix OC 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Asus's Radeon RX 480 ROG Strix OC Gaming 8GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. It is a slightly overclocked version of it's younger brother, the ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 and so has the same additional feature of LED lights, a non stock cooler and a different array of diplay ports.


Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed Ellesmere XT which is a Forth Gen GCN GPU and has 36 SM activated and thus offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit runs at 1120MHz and goes up to 1266MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2000MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Radeon RX 480 8GB can be almost 10% Faster than GeForce GTX 970 at 4K. However, Radeon R9 390X is still slightly faster, overall.
At 1920x1080, the default rank for all GD Graphics Card, expect its performance to be between Radeonn R9 290 and Radeon R9 290X.


System Suggestions
Radeon RX 480 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. As this card is just a 3% overclocked version of the RX 480 we recommend the same for both, a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
