After checking out an aftermarket RX 480, the reference RX 480, and both together in Crossfire you might think we were done. But Gigabyte was a little late to the party with their sampling and their RX 480 G1 Gaming with 8GB of vRAM came in while I was on vacation. Add in the RX 460 and GTX 1050 launches and I’m just now getting around to take a look at the card. So today I’m going to take a look at the card and see what it is all about. Then I’m going to run it through our test suite including the recently added Deus Ex tests and see how it compares to the rest of the RX 480 options. This also gives me a good chance to revisit the RX 480 and see if its location in the market has changed at all with the price changes. So get into everything and see what Gigabyte has going on.

I also make sure to include a copy of the GPUz for each card tested. This way we can confirm the clock speeds are in line with the specifications. In this case, we can see the G1 Gaming is running at the 1290 MHz that Gigabyte has listed on their website without any software required. It also lets you guys/girls know what driver I tested on and the firmware revision as well.
