SAPPHIRE's new Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 8GB graphics card has more than enough horsepower to easily handle 60FPS at 1080p on Ultra details, with 62FPS average in Far Cry Primal, and 84FPS average in Metro: Last Light Redux.
Games like Battlefield 1 will have no problems at 60FPS on the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX 480, and when it comes to titles like Overwatch, League of Legends, and CS:GO, you will hit 60FPS without breaking a sweat. You could even enable some AA or use Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) to bump the rendering resolution up, and render games like CS:GO at 4K on your 1080p monitor, without the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ RX 480 hitting a brick wall.
The performance of SAPPHIRE's Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 beats the reference RX 480 from AMD by a few FPS in every test, but as the resolution gets higher, the difference between the AMD reference RX 480 and the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ RX 480 are just 1-2FPS average in nearly all of the tests.
The big difference here is that the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 rocks better-than-reference RX 480 performance while doing so much quieter (and most of the time, silent) compared to the noisy and hot reference RX 480. Remember, you can throw the RX 480 into a multi-GPU system, so CrossFire performance will be even better - we'll have some numbers very soon.
