AMD Radeon RX 480 Spotted in NewEgg , Launching June 29



rx480 @ NewEgg

AMD’s much awaited $199 RX 480 is set to launch in a week and online stores have begun listing the card online. Popular online retail giant NewEgg shows a VisionTek Radeon RX 480 with a 1120MHz core clock and 1266MHz boost clock although the price is not listed. While the $199 price tag is expected for the 4GB model, the 8GB variant is expected to retail for $229 ~ $249. Some online stores such as PC Connection lists the same VisionTek 8GB variant of the card for a much higher price of $266, not surprising considering the high demand. Anticipation for the new Polaris graphics card series shot up when AMD teased a screenshot at Computex showing a pair of $199 RX 480’s trouncing a single $699 GTX 1080 in Ashes of Singularity.
