Pictures of Sapphire's Rx 480 Nitro have been leaked, showcasing a dual fan cooler design with a silver shroud and an RGB illuminated Sapphire logo on the side of the card. The colour of the sapphire logo will change depending on the GPUs temperature and can be user defined via software.   

AMD's RX 480 will launch on June 29th, which means that we are very likely to see more custom RX 480 GPU designs over the next few weeks. This GPU is designed to offer VR ready performance at the ultra low $199 price-point, giving PC gamers great value for money as well as offering great power efficiency.

This new GPU will come with a minimum of 4GB of VRAM, with 8GB in the high end, giving this GPU not just enough memory for today's games but enough for the next few years, offering FreeSync support and full DisplayPort 1.3/1.4 compatibility.  

In terms of raw GPU power, this GPU will have around 5.5 TFLOPS of GPU performance, making this GPU perfect for VR gaming.  

This GPU offers efficiency gains from using the new 14nm processing node but also through key optimisation in AMD's new Polaris Architecture, making this GPU 2.8x more efficient than previous generation AMD hardware.

They probably thought adding those holes would get more airflow..
It's ok though tbh. If it was black it wouldn't look as bad. or at the very last had little but more color to it.Quote

Nice to see a 3rd party card at last even if it does look kind of like a set of decks from the 90's.
