At Computex 2016, AMD firstly unveiled the Radeon RX 480. After weeks of its unveiling, a report from videocardz.com shared the first Fire Strike scores of the graphics processing unit. The major change with the Radeon RX 480 is that the graphics unit now boasts of a 14nm FinFET fabrication technology and has Polaris architecture.
Ahead of its shipping on June 29, the RX 480’s first strike scores have surfaced online. As per the leaked images, the Radeon RX 480 scored 5708 in FireStrike Extreme, whereas it obtained a score of 2779 in FireStrike Ultra. However, there are no words on the FireStrike Performance scores, as of now. But, we will be expecting those scores too before the official shipping.
Also, the report also has a comparison chart of FireStrike scores which clearly shows that the RX 480 is placed below GeForce GTX 980 and above the company’s Radeon R9 390X. The GeForce GTX 980 has scores of 6062 and 2960 in FireStrike Extreme and FireStrike Ultra and the R9 390X bears scores of 5570 and 2779 respectively.
That said, these are the just the PC Partner sample scores, which might be overclocked at times. And, these scores seems legitimate unlike few Chinese websites trying to mock the scores. Do check this space for more information regarding the AMD Radeon RX 480.
