AMD Radeon RX 480 Mobile technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX 480 Mobile

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX 480 Mobile sales 4 August 2016 at a recommended price of 450.00 USD. This is a GCN 4.0 architecture notebook card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 256.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. An additional none power connector is required, and power consumption is at 100 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 41.30 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
