ASUS RX 480 STRIX Review

0

Brand: ASUS
Model: RX 480 STRIX 8GB (ROG STRIX-RX480-O8G-GAMING)
UK Price: £289.99 (At time of review)
US Price: $299.99 (At time of review)

The ASUS RX 480 STRIX combines exquisite looks with fantastic RGB functionality making this card one of the best looking ever! It competes pretty well against the NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics card range and it also comes in at a better price point; this makes it a very desirable card.

With the brilliant software support from ASUS in the form of Aura (RGB lighting customisation) and GPU Tweak II (overclocking utility), it makes this sub £300 graphics card one of the best for its price point on the market and for those looking for a solid graphics card for 1080p and 1440p, you can’t go wrong!

The one major plus point that the RX 480 has going for it is CrossFire; multiple graphics card support. The GTX 1060 has SLI disabled which does give the lead to AMD in this regard and anyone running a pair of RX 480 STRIX cards in their system will not be disappointed; make sure your most played games support CrossFire before purchase!

If you’re looking for the best AMD RX 480 to purchase, then this is the model to get!
