Radeon RX 480 MSI 8GB compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon RX 480 MSI 8GB has exceptional performance. The levels of performance that can be reached with this graphics card are in fact far and beyond the acceptable ranges when running the latest applications and games. The graphics card is over 2 years old, meaning it is based on aging technologies. The level of driver support currently available is excellent, so manufacturer updates will undoubtedly accommodate new games with specific optimizations and allow for a long lifespan as part of a new gaming PC build.

With an effective SPU count of 2917, the AMD Radeon RX 480 MSI 8GB processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 150 Watts, however.
