AMD Radeon RX 480 (Laptop)

The AMD Radeon RX 480M (formerly known as R9 M480) is a mobile high end graphics cards. It is based on the new Polaris architecture (Polaris 11 chip) and manufactured in 14nm FinFET. Compared to the faster RX 490M, the M480 should be a slightly stripped down version based on the same chip. Up to now AMD only published benchmarks at the TDP of 35 Watt with 16 CUs. With these scores the card is slightly faster than a Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M. AMD only compared the performance to the old Radeon R9 M280X (14 CUs) with a TDP of 82 Watt, which is clearly slower. 

This performance level means that modern games like Overwatch, Doom or Mirrors Edge Catalyst should be playble in high details and full HD resolution. See the pages for the GTX 960M or 965M to see more gaming benchmarks for this performance level.

Due to the relative low TDP of 35 Watt, the RX480M can be used in "smaller" gaming laptops. E.g. 13-15-inch could with a slim form factor.
