Average Bench: 67.3% (22nd of 540)

Based on 36,696 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 67DF Models: Radeon (TM) RX 480 Graphics, AMD Radeon (TM) RX 480, Radeon(TM) RX 480, ASUS Radeon (TM) RX 480

The RX 480 is the first graphics card to feature AMD’s new 14nm Polaris architecture. The card is due for release on June 29 (in four days time). We don’t have all the details yet but the RX 480 is rumoured to have an MSRP of $199 and it will likely perform on a par with the Nvidia GTX 970. At present we only have one benchmark so although the performance figures are provisional the RX 480 and GTX 970 do appear to be closely matched. If further tests validate these results and the cards retail at the MSRP of $199, then the new RX 480 will effectively improve graphics card price/performance ratios by a whopping 23%, something that has not happened since the release of the Maxwell based Nvidia GTX 970 nearly two years ago. In addition better price/performance for the current generation of games, the RX 480 also offers relatively strong DX12 support which provides better future proofing than Nvida’s Maxwell (970/980/980 Ti) cards. [Jun '16 GPUPro]

Best card for the money/future right now for who does not want to spend over $300 for a graphics card. Stock and availability is currently low but will be fixed on September. Will outperform a higher priced GTX 1060 in DX12 and Vulcan games by 20fps but tends to slightly drag itself behind in DX11 and OpenGL games due to very recent driver support. AMD cards tend to improve by 25% in DX11 and OpenGL after 6 months of driver maturity just like the previous x80 cards. Crossfire support is available unlike the GTX 1060 and if you want similar performance for slightly less money, get the 4GB version.

An outstanding GPU. I got one to benchmark in the 99th percentile. Super quiet, 30% fan speed at 75c and inaudible while gaming. I got the sapphire nitro+

best graphics card I ever had, tho needed some tunning as Sapphire tuned it to be silent over power. Undervolted by -65mV, powerlimit increased to +39% and tuned fan speed so card never reaches 78 degrees, because at that temperature card throttle down gpu frequency...After all of this it is beast yet bit less power hungry :D
