With still 20 days to go until the official launch day of the Radeon RX 480, many folks are waiting in anticipation to discover what kind of performance this $199 card will bring to the table. Now a score appeared in the 3DMark database, indicating the RX 480 with 8GB GDDR5 memory scores P14461 in the 3DMark11 benchmark.
The P14461 score in 3DMark 11 puts the Radeon RX 480 around 2500 points above the VR gaming minimum score on a system based on Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 so it should live up to AMD's promise of providing VR gaming experience on a US $199 priced graphics card. Of course, we are talking about an 8GB version and 4GB one could end up with a slightly lower score. AMD is obviously targeting the GTX 970 and GTX 980 as the competition for the RX 480 so it is obvious that Polaris 10 won't get anywhere near Nvidia's Pascal-based GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, not with performance or the price.
