Today we will cover only our second Polaris 10 based card to date, another RX 480, but this time from Gigabyte. The Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G brings a more robust VRM and newer Windforce cooler to keep things cool and quiet. Did I mention it has a sizable overclock from the factory? It does! If that sounds interesting, scroll on down, take a look at more details, and see how it performed in our testing suite!

Thanks. I see you use MSI's Gaming X in comparative tests and reviewed it back in August. Would you say the MSI cooler and power section are indeed better or not necessarily?

6 of one, half dozen of the other for ambient cooling. Both will easily take the core to its anciently cooled limit and not look back.
