MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G review – the dragon is working for you

AMD still hasn’t announced their VGAs from the higher department, so RX 480 is their fastest mainstream GPU to date. Today you can read the MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G review. As I’ve started the Polaris reviews with MSI RX 470 Gaming X, I am confident that MSI did a great card with the more powerful chipset.

The TwinFrozr cooler is here as well, so I am very interested in GPU temperature.

MSI clocked their GPU a little lower than Asus. I am curious about the memory overclocking capability, especially that I’ve seen MSI cards to go higher than Asus at that chapter.
