Radeon RX 480 4K UHD Benchmark Results

The AMD Radeon RX 480 wasn’t really built for 4K gaming. But depending on the game and the graphics settings, you can play at 4K UHD with the RX 480. The graphics settings I used during the 4K benchmarks are the same with the 1440p, but anti-aliasing is disabled. 4K resolution offers super fine and great detail images that even if you disable AA, you can still see smooth edges.

It’s also noteworthy to mention that you could get better frame rates if you tone down the graphics settings of the game. Depending on the game, using the medium or lower graphics settings could give you a much better playable frame rates.

    Why didn’t you OC the memory when you OC’d the Card?

    Memory Oc is probably even more important that Core OC on this card

    • I did try to OC the memory. Unfortunately, I can’t make the card stable enough to finish the entire benchmark suite with its memory OCed. Some reviewers where able to OC the memory of their RX 480, probably mine was an isolated case. I am hoping to get a non-reference RX 480. Then we can compare them side by side.

        Did you raise the power limit and Have the VRAM voltage at 1V?
        Also, you could undervolt the Core a bit to acheive better clocks and thermals

  • I’ve got higher scores within Heaven at 1080p Ultra https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/60d821e79e9b2cd767ae2b2e8240687d8a8d10d7d0998a941e9270b985ea775f.png with my Red Devil and A10-7870K APU (OC to 4.2GHz) Memory OC to 2400. I know it’s not fair to compare the reference card with an Aftermarket solution, but I have an APU for CPU, which it’s supposed to be a bottleneck right?
