Earlier today AMD revealed the RX 480. It was released to aid AMD in its aim to bring down the cost of the Virtual Reality experience. The Card is a powerhouse running on FinFET with great specs and a low 150w power draw from a single 6 pin connector.
The card will be available in 4GB and 8GB versions and is said to be released on 29 June. The bombshell is that the card will cost only $199 (R 3117.30 – at current $ to R) but it will stand with cards twice its cost like the GTX 980, R9 Fury and the Radeon R9 390X.
