To provide gamers with greater graphics performance with capabilities of up to 1440p displays and virtual reality, MSI has announced two new graphics cards – the Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 8G and Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 4G.
Both the cards are based on AMD’s Polaris architecture and feature the TWIN FROZR VI thermal design so as to ensure much better cooling of the 14 nm FinFET GPU. The new levels of cool allow for higher core and memory speeds for increased performance in games up to 1440p and VR.
The recognizable shapes of the eye-catching TWIN FROZR cooler are 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.
MSI’s new TWIN FROZR VI Thermal Design raises the bar of Graphics Card air cooling. TORX Fan 2.0 is the enhanced version of the patented MSI TORX Fan technology which generates 22 per cent more air pressure for better cooling performance while further reducing noise levels. Connected to the huge heatsink are up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a squared shape at the bottom for optimal heat transfer from the solid nickel-plated copper baseplate combined with premium thermal compound X to keep the Polaris powerhouse cool.
Radeon RX 480 GPUs are engineered to provide premium VR experiences to a wide range of users. Experience beautifully rich and immersive VR adventures with advanced comfort and effortless compatibility. Avoid nausea and motion sickness with the AMD LiquidVR initiative, featuring ground breaking Asynchronous Shaders. The Radeon RX 480 graphics card, combined with AMD LiquidVR technology has been used by leading head-mounted display (HMD) vendors, providing an exceptional platform for a fully immersive and comfortable VR experience.
