This is not a deal so I don't care for voting but it's just a heads up for people who want the card to secure one via pre order from Amazon. This card is the Black Edition and with boost clocks hits 5.92 teraflops of compute power. Both cards ship today but I went for the Black Edition OC as it's the fastest 480 at launch and with boost clocks it is rated at 6.11 teraflops + it has a backplate on it. If anyone is interested in that model it is £222.99 also from Amazon. Hope this helps someone out.

AMD have done us proud still, that's an awesome price. if it wasn't for them Nvidia would still be ripping us off.

£212 lol


£212.99 isn't £212, it's £213! DON'T FALL FOR THEIR MARKETING TRICKS!!!!

Wait for the custom designs.

Any idea on the noise levels?

You can't compare the RX 480 to the GTX 1070. They are made for different markets.

Wasn't this supposed to be £150?

Great! Now its more expensive because we left the eu. Last time i heard, this was $200 usd. X(

I think 8gb is $230 and 4gb $200 then add 20% v.a.t
also this has a backplate I think so that's possibly extra $10

Looks like a Scorpio candidate.

That was for the 4GB version and will be without VAT.

8GB 480 has a RRP of $229, 4GB at $199.

$229 + 20% (our VAT rate = $274.8 )

$274.8 current rate according to Google = £206.62

Not exactly an economy breaking difference.

​I don't know if you are joking but it was never going to be £150 that was people directly converting the US pricing which never happens

​I think it's a good price considering it has a back plate also

For those complaining that the price isnt cheaper, I'd suggest you remember Brexit amd the devaluing of the pound.

Whats the recommended PSU required for this please?

Also whats the power consumption like please? I heard this is on new tech and is power efficient apparently?

Oh for those with the student discount code it comes down to £202.34

It's around the price predicted. I expected the 8GB version to be slightly more...

400W or so.

These things pump out some serious hot air under load. During a quick test on FurMark I saw 83c in a very well cooled case. If you insist on RX480, wait for the custom cooler variants.

I can't wait to put this in my PS4

It should draw a maximum of 150W (1x 75W 6pin connector + 75W from the motherboard). recommended minimum would be around 350W if it's a very high quality power supply and you don't have to power much, else around 450-550W should have no trouble

At the rate of the update cycle. In a few years you may as well just buy a PC

Showing as out of stock for me, ordered it anyway.

Just to add to that, $199 = £149, so add VAT and you get £180, ie. the minimum you'll see the 4gb 480 for.


This is the 8gb edition

What day are proper shops starting selling these?

Yeah but a week ago the pound was worth more so it would have cost more like £190.
