Today AMD launched its new RX480 GPU, Benchmarks are putting the new cards performance around that of the GTX 970. Prices are starting at £184.99 for the 4gb card and £219.95 for the 8gb card.

Some people are raving about this card but i cant see why you would buy this over the same priced GTX 970 that has already been tried and tested and already has an after market cooler installed meaning it cooler and quieter. 

There is a full review of the RX 480 over at OC3D.net

Warning, they draw more power through the pci-e slot, than the 6 pin power connector. Its causing cheap or old mobo's to auto shut down....

On a plus note, Some of the earlier 4gb RX480's actually come with 8gb of vram its just simple bios tweek to unlock the extra 4gb
