MSI Brings the Radeon RX480 to New Levels of Cool

INTRODUCING THE RADEON™ RX 480 GAMING X 4G/8G

MSI is proud to present brand new graphics cards based on AMD’s Polaris architecture. Both the Radeon™ RX 480 GAMING X 8G and Radeon™ RX 480 GAMING X 4G cards brandish the imposing TWIN FROZR VI thermal design to keep the 14 nm FinFET GPU cooler than ever before. The new levels of cool allow for higher core and memory speeds for increased performance in games up to 1440p and VR. The recognizable shape of the eye-catching TWIN FROZR cooler is intensified by a fiery red GAMING glow piercing through the cover, while the MSI GAMING dragon RGB LED on the side can be set to any of 16.8 million colors to match your mood or build. A completely new custom 8-phase PCB design using Military Class 4 components with an 8-pin power connector enables higher overclocking performance to push your graphics card to the max. The classy matte black solid metal backplate gives the card more structural strength and provides a nice finishing touch.
