10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid to low level graphics card, the Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 8GB is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 8GB graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. The Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 8GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 450 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Dying Light 2 with 31 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Resident Evil 8 which returns a weak 23 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Battlefield 2042 which we saw getting a weak 15 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Dying Light 2 and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 61 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. We added Resident Evil 8 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 17 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Battlefield 2042 which got 11 FPS at Ultra 1440p.

Radeon RX 480 Asus ROG Strix Gaming 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Asus Radeon RX 480 ROG Strix Gaming 8GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. It is different from the reference in it's display ports, it's personalisable LED lights and it's cooling system, which lead to the 8-pin power connector requirement.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed Ellesmere XT which is a Forth Gen GCN GPU and has 36 SM activated and thus offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit runs at 1120MHz and goes up to 1266MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Radeon RX 480 8GB can be almost 10% Faster than GeForce GTX 970 at 4K. However, Radeon R9 390X is still slightly faster, overall.
At 1920x1080, the default rank for all GD Graphics Card, expect its performance to be between Radeonn R9 290 and Radeon R9 290X.

System Suggestions
As Radeon RX 480 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440, this card is no different. So we recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
