The Sapphire RX 480 Nitro is the worlds first custom RX 480 to be listed and Overclockers UK is the first reseller in the world to list this amazing card for pre-order. Featuring Sapphire's Nitro black dress approach with great looks that remain subtle meaniing this card will look great in any case. Featuring Sapphire RGB Logo so you can pick any colour and set LED modes, including switching off. The card is designed to run cooler, quieter and have improved overclocking ability due to improved power phase and 1x 8-pin connector. Also featuring Diamond Chokes to help reduce and eliminate coil whine. The Sapphire Nitro is not only the first custom RX 480 on the market and Overclockers UK is the first to list this amazing product world wide with 2000 units due to arrive middle to end July. We at OcUK believe the Nitro RX 480 will be our best selling RX 480 simply because it improves every aspect of the RX 480 by being faster, quieter, cooler, better looking, more features and even better the price premium for all these extras is very minimal, making the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro absolute incredible value for money.

This means the RX 480 is a superb card for those who are still gaming on cards a few generations old as this card offers a vast leap in performance whilst not requiring a power supply upgrade. Also jam packed with features such as full DX12 readyness, VR Ready and the latest GCN architecture this amazingly powerful, quiet and low power card will only get more and more powerful as AMD release further driver updates, meaning this card is a great upgrade that will last years to come. OcUK now stocks several monitors that support Freesync from as little as around £100, which when combined with the RX-480 give the most fluid gaming experience with no stuttering or tearing, just silky smooth graphics.

Absolutely ideal for 720P and 1080P gaming on all the latest titles with maximum visual settings such as Doom, Unreal Tournamount, Hellblade, Fifa 17, Mafia III, Watch Dogs 2, TitanFall 2, Battlefield 1, Dishonored 2, Halo Wars 2 and Ghost Recon. The RX-480 can even manage gaming comfortably at 1440P (2560x1440) which demonstrates truly how powerful this card is, yet it features such a low price point and is a great upgrade for pretty much any PC with a 350W or greater ATX power supply. Should Half Life 3 ever be released, the RX-480 will be the perfect gaming card!!!

Features:
- Sapphire Nitro Twin Fan Black Cooler
- Removable Fans (Makes cleaning easy)
- 2x HDMI, 2x DIsplayPort & 1x DVI (Perfect for VR Setups)
- Overclocked out the box
- 1x 8-Pin power connector for improved overclocking ability

Too expensive. I expected Sapphires version to come closer to £210-220. This is far too much.

Also notice how they've fixed the Mobo power drain with the 8 pin connector as I said they would. Simple fix.

Given the pound tanking and it looking like the 1060 is going to be above £250, as far as bang for buck goes this is going to be a solid card (and deal)

Errm no, the silver is intended to the the next model up, believe Sapphire call them Toxic.

Some people are saying that the XFX card is fine, but there's video evidence that it's clearly not fine on older hardware. CrossFire would only worsen the problem too.

The good news is that cards that use an 8-pin connector shouldn't have this power issue.

Isn't 8 pin just another 2 grounds ?

All these 480s = Motherboard killers comments. Where was all these concerns when the 750ti's where drawing up to 140 watts from the limited 75w draw?

I don't remember hearing about melted motherboard back then.

6 pin is 75W. 8 pin is 150W.

The 6 pin can go higher, but there's a risk of burn. The reason the 8 pin can safely deliver more is because of the extra ground.

I don't think it would have been any less if the vote had gone the other way. the greedy beggars will charge the absolute max they think they can get away with regardless.

While the RX480 4GB at around £170-£180 is good value IMHO, this is overpriced what what is still fundamentally a mid range offering at best. I think the falling prices of the GTX970 and R9 290/390 might well make them better value propositions if you don't have to have the very latest generation....

This has only been reported when overclocking as far as I was aware, plus the introduction of the 8pin powerline connector for this card makes that statement pretty much null and void.

Unfortunately not. It's stock settings.

You're right that all of the 3rd party cards with an 8-pin connector shouldn't have this issue though. AMD are also working on an update for the card. People are speculating that they'll undervolt things slightly.

Thanks for the heads up, a little bit more than I wanted to pay though to be honest. Atleast it gives hope that the aftermarket cards are coming sooner rather than later though. Mite just hang on till the 1060 is officially announced on the 7th though to find out pricing before a pre order anything.

Still not the power efficient card we was promised

Will they run happily on a 550w PSU? Yes... agreed from a promise perspective its a little wide of the mark, but how many gamers really care how much power they pull?

Would rather have a 390x at this price point, if i was a gamer.

I find it hard to vote on this one, either way, because I can't find this on offer/pre-order elsewhere to compare prices but unless this one reviews as an extraordinary overclocker at sensible temps/power draw/noise, I can't see these flying off the shelf at that price and certainly not two of them. Want to give Sapphire the benefit of the doubt but that price point is off putting.

The power issue is with the reference models, this is an AIB model. You are expecting reference prices for AIB products, also the Mobo power drain fix will be a software update, more information about that to follow on Tuesday.

Agreed, there is SO much FUD going around about these cards it's unreal. Part of me thinks it's because they may have got it just right.

Care to share how this is a simple fix?

I hadn't put two and two together until I read a comment yesterday that explicitly pointed it out... but the RX 480 uses more power than the GTX 1070. Not (just) a lower performance-per-watt, but the 480 cards actually chug more power in total.

(Apropos of nothing, really... just a curiosity, given the claims of an "historic" leap in performance-per-watt from AMD! Just a reminder to ignore the marketing and judge every card on its merits, as described by independent third-parties.)

Eh? Is it that hard to understand or something? Reference GPU 6 pin. Partner GPU 8 pin. More pins. More direct power from the PSU. Less issues with drawing power from the Mobo as is the case with the reference 6 pin. 8 pin can do 150w. See how simple it is? You're welcome.

I'm in the same boat, what I don't get is that people... Dare I say fanboys... Are slating it saying the reference cards have issues and it's a rip off etc I recommend buying a 1060 or 1070. That's like saying to a kid who had just passed their driving test nah don't buy a Focus get a Mustang.

This price point appeals to a completely different market.

That said the same people vote cold for XB1 because it's not PS4 (_;)

The core voltage seems to be sharing power from both. These cards could have the same problem.

... And the problem in itself isn't a problem that's what's making me laugh about the whole situation it's been blown way, way out of proportion! We've had similar with multiple brands and cards over the years and no one has made such a massive fuss over it. Personally, after the reference cards I genuinely don't think it'll be an issue. ATI have also said that they're releasing a new driver set later this week to address that very problem.

Don't understand why this is cold. This will give the Nvidia 1060 a run for its money in terms of price to performance ratio. Custom 1060s will cost at least £280 and all only have 6GB of memory.

This is a great lookin card, Sapphire are quality so should run near silent and there will be nice OC out of the box. Heat added.

Stop spreading misinformation. This and all the custom partner cards have a totally different PCBs so they won't have that minor problem that has since been fixed in a driver update a few days ago. But yeah, continue trolling by all means ;)
