Strange RX 480 Benchmarks Leaked, Here’s How It Compares With A GTX 970June 28, 2016
The first gaming performance results of AMD’s Radeon RX 480 graphics card were leaked by Videocardz. The performance results were originally posted by A Polish magazine by the name of CD-Action but have since been removed due to it violating their Non Disclosure Agreement with AMD. The performance results show us what to expect in terms of gaming performance from AMD’s 14 nm FinFET based Polaris 10 GPUs which will be launching tomorrow, 29th June.
The tests are strange since the magazine has only benchmarked 3 games and only 1 benchmarking utility, even worse is that the game settings aren’t properly detailed, as stuff like Hairworks , Over Anti-Aliasing and Supersampling options can cause skewed results, and luckily the test bench was stated in the leaked image. An Intel i5-6600K along with Z170 Pro Gaming motherboard by ASUS, and 32Gigs of overclocked HyperX Predator RAM, running on a SSD+HDD drive setup and the modular V850 Power Supply Unit by Coooler Master was used as the test setup.
They even gave out their Verdict by saying that the RX 480 running at 1266MHz was slightly slower than an overclocked GTX 970, but it does beat the reference model.
Currently A 4GB 970 (MSI) costs 299$ on Amazon, so to apparently get beaten by a 199$ card is truly a good job done by AMD. We at Asidcast hope that the GTX 1060 will be a more than worthy contender at this price range and will hopefully offer a higher amount of power for cheaper.
