We reviewed the Asus RX 480 Strix Gaming OC Aura earlier this week (HERE) and I am impressed with their solution, even though I feel that at £289.99 inc vat it is a little expensive – it is after all encroaching into the same price point as many...

When we look at Sapphires version of the RX 480 against the reference design, overall we prefer the Nitro+. The overall look of the card is better, in our opinion, much sleeker. We like the idea of easily replaceable fans and of course, any...

Brimming with features, tidily built and with a cooler that is a marked improvement on the reference design, the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ cards are an attractive proposition. They're frequently listed as popular or hot sellers on etailer website and it's...

Well, when I first took a look at the reference RX 480 I saw newer DX12 titles really standing out and the card performing really well but coming in behind the GTX 1060 in the older DX11 titles. With the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro, this is still the case,...

As it has been discussed a lot lately, here are the results when you put the Nitro+ RX 480 against the GTX 1060 AMP! Edition from Zotac. According to AMD and Nvidia both reference models, based on price, reside in the same market; somewhere in the...

The Sapphire RX 480 Nitro OC+ has tons to recommend it, and indeed depending on which way your preference scales are balanced it will either rocket itself to the top of your list, or sit on the bottom with an asterisk.Clearly the one element of the...

These graphics cards charts contain benchmark results of numerous recent graphics cards. We've tested the card with three different resolutions, where there are 1080p, 1440p and 2160p. Apart from that we also show live price tags for all models....

As AMD's largest AIB partner, Sapphire has been making custom cards for quite some time now. There is not a lot left to innovate in this space anymore, so just about anything can be a point of difference. As a factory overclocked card, the Nitro+ RX 480...

Aesthetically Sapphire have done well with their Nitro+ cooling design, releasing an effective cooler which not only comes in a neutral colour scheme but also is easy to both clean and repair. Design wise the RX 480 Nitro+ OC looks like it will improve...

Price Currently, the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 OC is available from Overclockers UK for £249.95 including free next day shipping. To put this into perspective, the reference model which features a pretty sloppy cooling design costs £221.99. The additional...

The 4GB Nitro+ RX 480 is a damned fine and damned affordable version of an absolutely amazing graphics card. Sapphire’s setting the bar high for custom RX 480 models with this card’s quality and price—especially if achieving sky-high overclocks continues to be a pipe dream with Polaris, thus limiting it to higher-end custom...

Over the last several weeks, we've devoted a lot of coverage to NVIDIA's latest graphics cards, but now it's AMD's turn to show us what kind of gaming horsepower we can expect in the $200-$300 range. Our introduction to Polaris comes courtesy of...

International Review By gizcomputer.com on 90

La tarjeta que hemos probado, en primer lugar, es una gran mejora de AMD respecto a su generación anterior en consumo energético y temperaturas, con un TDP de 225W.Otro aspecto a tener en cuenta es que cuando sobrealimentas la tarjeta y le haces...

Come sempre non possiamo che spezzare una lancia a favore di SAPPHIRE che, non è una novità, le schede video le sa sicuramente progettare e realizzare. La SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 480 OC 8GB è dotata di un look gradevole, aggressivo quel che basta ma senza...
