Asus RX 480 Strix Gaming review – gaming and VR

The new AMD graphics card generation, Polaris, was greatly expected by the gamers, especially that the manufacturer was talking about affordable VR experience for everyone. The cards saw the light and I’ve tested the reference version. You can read the review, if you messed it.

Equally anxious, we expect the custom boards to hit the market, as they offer better cooling and some other features, like RGB lights and better overclocking potential.

Asus send me their RX 480 Strix Gaming for review and I can tell you it’s something else.

The presence of an 8-pin power connector instead of a 6-pin one means that Asus aims for some overclocking. Actually the best proof of that is the default 1330MHz OC mode clock.
