WCCF Tech claims the upcoming Radeon RX 480 video card from AMD will be a very decent overclocker. The site says AMD has new overclocking tools in its Overdrive utility, including voltage control. According to the rumors, many RX 480 cards from AMD's partners will be able to hit around 1.4GHz boost clocks after some basic overclocking, and by over-volting and some finetuning you may be able to hit about 100MHz more.
Now let’s talk more about what the RX 480 can do in terms of overclocking. Many RX 480 graphics cardsfrom AMD’s Add-In-Board partners will be capable of ~1.4Ghz boost clocks after some very basic overclocking. The cards can be pushed beyond that with voltage adjustments. The “Beast Mode” RX 480 $299 cards that we had talked about two days ago will come with pretty hefty factory overclocks right out of the box and some will be able to hit 1.5Ghz+ on air after some over-volting and fine tuning.
So how will an overclocked Radeon RX 480 perform? If the rumors are to be believed, it should be fairly easy to achieve performance similar to what you get from a stock Radeon R9 Fury X!
