    Some photos of what seems to be SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 480 NITRO 8GB have surfaced on the WWW. The card from Sapphire is their Nitro model and will be a dual-slot dual-fan based product....

    I saw people on Reddit saying this card was "ugly" and "looks like a shower head". I mean, it looks like a graphics card to me? Doesn't need to look pretty if its going to sit inside a windowless case for the rest of its life, wedged in between a desk. Can't please some people though.

    I saw the post about the MSI Lightning RX 480... What a awesome card. I think that will be the one I get.

    Update: MSI has reached out to us, saying that this is "fake without any doubt". The full statement from MSI: "This stuff is way too retro for any new product...I can guarantee you this is fake without any doubt, There is no need to be too serious about it :)".

    Sapphires reference one with the backplate is sexy.
    Thats what I will be getting.

    The dual fan nitro is kinda ugly, but if you were to paint the shroud black, it would look good IMHO.

    Agreed. Even if it looks like $hit, it's gonna be seated inside a case.

    What's more important is performance, not looks!

    I care more about the power connector and the number of PCB layers than the looks, to be frank.

    FuryX/980Ti performance for $250 - that would be a great offering. Sure, I'd buy such card.

    390X/GTX980 <--- F$#(*) that! NO DEAL

    I'd agree with you but some people have cases with windows and they want a card with a bit of bling so it's apples an oranges, but I don't think it looks like a shower head lol
