FULL VIDEOS: AMD Polaris-powered RX 460, 470 and 480 GPUs launch in Australia

By

The latest and greatest AMD range of Radeon graphics cards has come, offering hyper-threading GPUs, with the Radeon 480 the VR-running powerhouse.

Do you feel the need for a brand new graphics card, so your gaming — at whatever level  can more than keep up? Then AMD wants you to know about its latest and greatest GPUs. 

Of course, a powerful computer helps too, but AMD’s Radeon RX 480 is designed for "premium gamers and VR", and should offer the same performance no matter which vendor packages up the 480 hardware and releases it themselves.

There’s also the RX 470 "for gamers happy with 1080", while the RX 460 processor is for "eSports, streaming and notebooks", with 470 and 460 only available to OEMs for use in their various products.

iTWire colleague Ray Shaw has a full write-up on the new graphics solutions in his article entitled: “AMD Radeon – we are out to win in graphics.

Ray also covered the features of the RX 480 in his full overview entitled ‘AMD RX480 ‘affordable’ graphics cards in Australia now.’

It also offers "asynchronous compute", which is like hyperthreading for GPUs, letting GPUs perform more than one task at a time, making for a much more capable graphics card that doesn't drop frames in VR games while delivering better performance anywhere this hyperthreading capability is taken advantage of. 

For even more detail, you can watch the full launch videos of the live presentation that the Sydney-based tech and gaming media experienced in person, with the first video showing international guest Korhan Erenben, ‎AMD’s Business Development and Product Management and part of the Radeon Technology Group (RTG), giving the first part of the presentation: 

This was followed by James Prior, AMD’s Compute & Graphics business unit product manager, who told the crowd that AMD/RTG sole mission was to "Win in graphics".
