With an overclocked core and memory, based on AMD's Polaris architecture, and AMD LiquidVR ready, the MSI Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 8G Graphics Card allows you to have the full virtual reality experience.
Not only for gaming, the Radeon RX 480 supports APIs such as OpenCL and OpenGL. These APIs can take advantage of the GPU's 2304 Stream Processors to accelerate parallel computing tasks, taking some of the processing load off of the CPU.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are two DisplayPort 1.3 outputs and two HDMI 2.0b outputs as well as a dual link DVI-D output. Combined with AMD's Eyefinity, the GPU can provide an immersive gaming experience using up to four monitors.
To keep cool, even when overclocked, MSI implemented their Twin Frozr VI cooler on this card. The Twin Frozr VI cooler uses two large fans to force air through the heatsink and dissipate heat and lower the GPU's internal temperature. Because this kind of cooler recirculates air back into the case, this card works best in cases that have unrestricted airflow. There are several LED lights on the GPU, which can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects available in the MSI Gaming App. You can choose to have the LED lights respond to game sounds or music. You can pick a static color or have it breathing and flashing. Of course, you can just turn them off if you don't need them.
