Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 4GB Reviewed

Recommended Posts

Good review. 

 

I like the performance per cost of this card. I would probably hold out for the 8GB version, though.

the post says its 281W on load. is that the total system power consumption or just the card? if it is just the card then, what is the total system power consumption with nitro card. many thanks.

When I am pushing hard with the 8 gig model I see power draw from the wall for the entire system of around 320 so I would say he listed total system draw.

 

As for 8GB vs 4GB, for 1080P 4GB is enough and a 470 or 480 put together with a good Freesync monitor like from Nixeus, AOC or Viewsonic that is 24", 1080P at 144Hz and you have a reasonable price build that is gaming nirvana.

@ Waruna40, It is total system draw from the wall. I use Unigine heaven at 1920 x 1080 with maximum settings and pull the load from the same spot at each run through.  Some games may pull higher loads but this test gives a consistent result time over time.
