Joining Asus and Sapphire in releasing custom-made RX 480 graphics cards are PowerColor and XFX. Both companies will be releasing custom RX 480s called the PowerColor RX 480 Devil and an unnamed aftermarket RX 480 by XFX. Surprisingly, both graphics cards are said to come with a DVI-D port, which is unfortunately missing from the reference design Radeon RX 480.
PowerColor’s RX 480 Devil graphics card is said to come with a triple-fan design along with a custom PCB. In addition, this graphics card will also be equipped with an eight-pin power connector, which should provide the RX 480 Devil with much more overclocking headroom compared to the reference card. Speaking of which, sources report that this graphics card has the ability to be overclocked above 1.4GHz. Unfortunately, no other details regarding this graphics card have been revealed yet.
Next up is XFX’s unnamed custom RX 480. Interestingly, this graphics card was spotted on a leaked instruction manual of an XFX graphics card. The manual contained instructions on how to replace XFX’s “Hard Swap” cooler fans. Look over to the bottom right of the manual and one is greeted with a disclaimer stating “XFX Hard Swap Fans are only available on XFX RX Series selected models.”
The pictured custom RX 480 graphics card in XFX’s manual resembles that of the graphics card under its Double Dissipation series, though with red accents.
It’s worth mentioning that none of the graphics card mentioned above have been officially announced by their respective companies. Instead, these graphics cards were spotted by various sources, which may or may not reflect the finalised product. So, until they’re officially announced, take this one with a pinch of salt.
