Outshine the Competition
Outshine the competition with the ASUS Radeon RX 470, featuring 1206 MHz GPU and DirectCU II 0dB fans for quieter cooling. GPU Tweak II with Game Booster and XSplit Gamecaster provides ultimate monitoring and streaming control. Auto-Extreme technology incorporates Super Alloy Power II components for premium quality and reliability.
The Evolution of ROG
Now in its 10th year, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) celebrates the ever-evolving collaboration between world-class R&D, insatiable enthusiasts and devoted gamers needed to embrace (and tame) the bleeding edge and is ready to keep outrunning technology for ten more.
Where Style Meets Performance
Featuring Aura RGB Lighting on both the shroud and ROG logo, ROG Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors and up to six different effects for the perfect light show.
Allows for targeted supplemental cooling, ASUS FanConnect provides dual 4-pin PWM GPU-controlled headers.
Game Cool. Play Silent.
DirectCU II features dual 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards.
ASUS engineers have integrated premium components into their graphics card designs to reinforce overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, provide 2X reduced component buzzing while under full load, and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.
Game Your Way
Redesigned with an intuitive, all-new UI, GPU Tweak II makes overclocking easier and more visual than ever, while still retaining advanced options for seasoned overclockers. With one click, the new Gaming Booster function maximizes system performance by removing redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically. XSplit Gamecaster lets you easily stream or record your gameplay right from a convenient, in-game overlay.
ASUS Auto Extreme Technology
All ASUS graphics cards are now produced using Auto-Extreme Technology, an industry-exclusive, 100% automated production process that incorporates premium materials to set a new standard of quality. Auto-Extreme Technology ensures consistent graphics card quality as well as improved performance and longevity. This new manufacturing process is also eliminates harsh chemicals and reducing power consumption by 50%.
Outshine the competition with the STRIX Radeon RX 460 with 1-click overclocking, featuring customizable Aura RGB lighting and Direct CU II 0dB fans for quieter cooling. GPU Tweak II and XSplit Game caster provide ultimate monitoring and streaming control. For premium quality, Super Alloy Power II components are assembled via Auto-Extreme manufacturing.
Top customer reviews
- It's Quiet
- Runs at great temperatures
- Excellent performance for the price
- Will not keep advertised 1270mhz clock speed out of the box (thought it can be easily fixed with included software)
As a side note I am currently pairing this with a FX-6300 Clocked in at 4.3Ghz any CPU worse than this will affect your Framerate as my processor already bottlenecks the card in some games I tested.
THE OLD: I went to this card from EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost SSC 2Gb (x2 SLI) <takes a breath>
THE NEW: Wow. That's all I can say. I didn't think it'd be this good. Any game I have now, including new AAA titles, play gorgeously at 60+ FPS... usually 90 unless it's made by Ubisoft or Bethesda. I still have great eyesight and a brain so I game at 1080p as it's more than beautiful enough, especially when compared to my kid brother's Xbox 360.
THE CARD ITSELF: Some criticize Asus for putting the exact same cooler on their Strix cards... fools. There's no better air cooling solution on the market. I cannot get this card to crest 66* degrees celsius. The awesome part is I keep the fans at a steady 40-60% (which is still inaudible) the core is clocked at 1340 Mhz, the memory at 8048 Mhz, and Firestrike, Furmark, & Uni-Heaven cannot even make it go over 66*. All the while I use HWinfo and keep my temps/power in my tray and it records max,min,avg during my gaming and I have never seen the card pull more than 144w (I'll try to attach a shot of it). The Aura lighting is beautiful and has inspired me to get more Aura items when I buy next. I simply cannot give Asus enough praise on this.
THE CONS: Sorry... I really can't think of any. Of course it's huge and heavy but only a fool who doesn't watch reviews or take measurements would be upset about that. No power, temperature, or software issues that I've encountered.
Core= 1340 Mhz
Mem= 8048 Mhz
Temps= Never more than 66*C
Performance= Stellar for the cost and 1080p and can be Crossfired which trumps the 1060 (which also costs more).
Sure, you could buy a 1070 for less than 2 of these, but you'd have to spend that much at once. Some people, like myself, just can't afford to drop 500 dollars on GPU's. Even if I could, I'd choose this. If AMD is put out of business the cost of GPU's will double. (IE- Comcast or game of Monopoly). Join the rebellion and give them a try- I bet you'd be as happy as I am.
A 8GB Vram RX480 is much better than a 3gb or 6gb 1060. Reason being, modded video games (textures), running background programs like pandora or youtube while playing video games, video production, or 3d rendering.
A properly overclocked RX 480 will outperform a 1060 out of the box for 40-50 dollars less. The limiting factor for overclocking a 480 is heat, the limiting factor for overclocking a 1060 is propaganda. With the default BIOS I am running at 1400mhz @ 1.15 V (Strix GPU Tweaker, the max voltage allowed is 1.3V (1.4V with a custom-flashed BIOS ). The 1060 requires PCB modification for any decent overclocking, max overclock on a 1060 is ~108% (compared to 115-120% on RX 480, over twice the overclock potential on air) and like all recent NVidia graphics cards don't overclock very much unless you dump liquid nitrogen on it. Where as with the RX 480, there are plenty who are making the 1500+ on water. What this all means is 1060 talks a big game, but the sleeping giant of the mid-tier GPU world is the RX 480.
RX 480 is capable of being paired with another for CrossFire, 1060 is not. Crossfire works pretty well 90% of the time, despite the negativity surrounding it. The other 10% has to do with NVidia optimized games, modded games with nvidia optimization, and bad game programming. (sometimes drivers, but that really isn't the case anymore)
Here are some games where you may wonder how they perform on this card overclocked (Cpu: 6900k @ 4.5ghz with 3200mhz 16 CAS ram)
- Skyrim Modded Heavily with textures and Realvision ENB : 45 FPS in the heavy dense areas like Riverwood (Extended), Capped at 60 for most of the game.
- Skyrim Remastered, no mods, max settings: Solid 60
- Metal Gear Solid V & VI : Solid 60 (Capped)
- Modded Minecraft (shaders+256TexturePack+default shader settings) - 45 FPS around Villages, it can bog down to around 28-30 in Huge Player Cities
- Black Desert Online (max settings) - 50-53 FPS
- The Division (MAX (not ultra) settings - Nvidia Shadows) - 50 FPS (for reference, 1060 out of box gets 45 FPS on ultra on a NVidia sponsored game)
- These are the rough games for AMD, if not all GPUS. All other games I own perform 60+
Finally, consider the monitor to go with it. Freesync monitors are half the price of Gsync monitors and preform on equal ground.
The one thing AMD doesn't have going for it is it can't run Nvidia proprietary software like NVidia hairworks (even though AMD lets them use Tress FX), can't run PhysX (even though Havok was free to use till Microsoft bought them out), can't run NVidia's 3D vision (but they have their own tridef, also open platform)... you get the point.
I'm not an AMD fan, but I'm so fed up with people sucking up to NVidia so they can get sponsored by the next wave of NVidia cards, and then spread false information on behalf of NVidia. So, yea, RX 480, the way to go, and you can feel good about it on a whole new level.
** Update, managed to get a 1490mhz clock at 1.3V, stock bios, open air test bench, to run benches and games ** - Air cooling
Just for another reference, you'd have to overclock a 1060 22.5% to get this score. It's possible, with hard pcb volt modding, but highly unlikely and most definitely not on air.
** Another Update:
So I Benched this from 1450mhz to 1500mhz on 3d mark time spy. Something to note: memory overclocking is negligable, anything from 8000 to 8500 didn't change the score in the slightest. The most interesting thing however is that at 1480mhz produced the best results, at 1490 and 1500, the 3dmark score was actually far worse. At 1480, I was ranked 2nd in my cpu category (got a lousy lottery cpu), with a score of 4700. @1500mhz, my 3dmark score ranged in the 4300-4400's. Quite the difference.
