ASUS ROG Strix RX 480 8GB, Strix Gone RX 480! (ROG STRIX-RX480-8G-GAMING)


  • Ashes Of The Singularity
  • Battlefield 4
  • GTA 5

We tested at 1440P and 4K, as with the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 you should have no worries about 1080p.

Ashes Of The Singularity


Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

Ashes 1080p

For the first game benchmark at 1080p we wanted to limit the field to the GTX 1060, RX 470 and RX 480 because it’s to esy for they eyes to stray to the long line of GPU’s. The ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB took top honors here with 54.7 FPS and 4.3 FPS ahead of the GTX 1060 but the margins are so slim between cards that it could be just minor variations in th benchmark. In any ase all the video cards were producing entirely playable frame rates at 1080p.

Ashes 1440p

Here at 1440p the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB gave us 36.3 FPS with extreme video settings topped out. game play was smooth and graceful. We dipped our toes into the 4K pond but it wasn’t pretty in Ashes Of The Singularity, the current crd not being enthusiast we don’t feel the need so lets just say at 4K performance was lacking from the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB down.

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4A

Explore a vast range of experiences that allow you to play your way. Be the lone wolf to take control of your own destiny or work together in tight-knit five-man squads to strike as a team. New maps, more vehicles, weapons and destruction allow you to create your own path and play to your strengths. Absolutely nothing compares to the sheer scale and scope of Battlefield 4.

Battlefield 1080p

Battlefield 4 isn’t very demanding at 1080p and the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB came in at 79.7 FPS more than twice what would be needed for rock solid to the eye game play.

Battlefield 1440p

Hitting 1440p on BF4 puts a little more strain on the video cards but the ROG Strix 480 popped out 48.4 FPS and followed closely by the RX 470.

Battlefield 4K

Moving up to 4K we didn’t expect the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB to perform as well as it did and 25.8 FPS is nothing to be ashamed of for a card marketed as a upper mainstream offering.



Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.

GTA5 1080p

GTA 5 at 1080p lets the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB stretch it’s legs and produce 87.2 FPS which is pretty amazing for a video card in this class.

GTA 1440p

GTA 5 starts demanding more video card resources at 1440p and the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB peeled out at 46.7 FPS delivering the speed for seamless game play.

GTA5 4k

Moving up to the highest resolution 4K GTA the ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 480 8GB delivers 26.5 FPS on very high settings with 4x MSAA.
