ASUS Unveils the Radeon RX 480 DUAL 4GB

ASUS unveiled the Radeon RX 480 DUAL 4GB graphics card (DUAL-RX480-O4G). Based on a non-reference design by ASUS, the card derives its name from a dual-fan cooling solution. It features a custom-design PCB, which is shorter than the one found on the company's STRIX graphics cards; and which draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The cooler shroud is made of glossy white ABS plastic, and goes well with the color-scheme of some of ASUS' more recent mainline motherboards. Also on tap is a factory-overclock of 1320 MHz boost GPU, while the memory ticks at 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). ASUS didn't reveal pricing, but we expect it to be priced under $220.

The complete and utter disappointment of opening this page and not seeing a dual GPU card has ruined my day. Thanks again asus for delivering a mediocre product that got people excited.

"Dual" that's some innovative marketing right there, 15 people around a table and someone said it's got dual fans...tremendous let call it a day!

I could have side "Red Eyes" and put red eye's (as in Crimson) for the Tiger on the box, and the fan hubs. And why are the budget models always white? I mean MSI has their Armor/ White Tiger version as the low end. It always has in my mind "flipped", in that I think of them more in the term of a White Elephant!

Yup, misleading. Really needs to say 'Dual Fan'. Poor naming scheme.

i assume not since this is not a reference card so the pcb might have been modified, but i could be wrong, if so this is definitely a good choice for rx 480, cheap, 8gb unlockable, 2 fans!
