MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G Review

”When you look at the work MSI has done over the past several years to put the MSI Gaming brand out into the market, it is interesting to see that work bare fruit. Looking at the performance curve of the RX 480 Gaming X 8G, I found that the card does what is expected of it and more. A custom PCB using an all-digital VRM built around MSI's Military Class IV companents allow the card to run more efficiently while delivering a high level of performance for the installed hardware. The RX 480 Gaming X 8G is a factory overclocked video card. No surprises there! As a factory overclocked card, it is equipped with a boosted clock speed that is not the highest available on the market. That being said, it also retains that clock speed under load without throttling due to a thermal or current induced spike. This was a problem I saw while working with the Red Devil RX 480 that I have not seen on either of the MSI RX series cards I have tested.”
