AMD is looking all set to break the price/performance barrier and get back to its glory days with the new Polaris architecture. And it begins with the launch of the much awaited Radeon RX 480 today. Priced at $199 for the 4 GB variant and $239 for the 8 GB variant, the Radeon RX 480 promises to democratise Virtual Reality (VR) by making it much more easy, economically, to set up a VR-ready PC capable of driving the likes of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on a single graphics card. In India, the Radeon RX 480 is priced at Rs.28,990 which is more expensive than a GTX 970 that happens to be the bare minimum for VR. That’s Indian pricing for you!
However, that’s not all that AMD has in store with the Polaris architecture, there’s support for a much wider colour gamut to support future HDR monitors and more features added to the GPUOpen initiative. Let’s have an indepth look at the Polaris architecture.
