2: Gaming performance OpenGL v. Vulkan:Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of July 6th, 2016 on the AMD Radeon™ RX 480, on a test system comprising Intel i7 5960X CPU, 16GB DDR4-2666 Mhz system memory, Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver 16.7.1 and Windows 10 x64 using the game DOOM on the ultra preset. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. At 1920x1080, Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 running DOOM OpenGL scored 106.40 and Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 running DOOM Vulkan scored 135.65 on AMD Radeon™ RX 480, which is 27.5% faster performance. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. Test results are not average and may vary. RS-43

Gaming performance DX11 v. DX12: Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of July 12th 2016 on the AMD Radeon™ RX 480, on a test system comprising Intel Core i7 5960X with 16GB DDR4 memory at 2666Mhz. AMD Crimson Driver 16.6.2 and Windows 10. Using Warhammer™ on Ultra Preset, HITMAN on Ultra Preset and Ashes of the Singularity™ on High Preset @ 1440p with DX11 and DX12 APIs. The DX11 scores were 43.1, 54 and 40.26 respectively. The DX12 scores were 51, 49 and 56 respectively. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. Test results are not average and may vary. RX-19

3: Testing by AMD Performance Labs July 14, 2016 on the AMD Radeon™ RX 470 and Radeon ™ R7 370 on a test system comprising an Intel Core i7 5960X (3.0GHz) CPU, 16GB (DDR4-2666 MHz) memory and Windows 10. RX 470 driver used: 16.30-160628a-304042E. R7 370 driver used: 16.15.2211. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results.

4: 1: Statement of “future-proof” refers to support of current and upcoming technology standards including 14nm FinFET process technology, DirectX 12 and Vulkan API support, new display technology, and experiences such as VR. “Future-proof” statement is not meant to serve as a warranty or indicate that users will never have to upgrade their graphics technology again. Support of current and upcoming technology standards described above has the potential to reduce frequency of graphics upgrades for some users.

FreeSync is an AMD technology designed to eliminate stuttering and/or tearing in games and videos by locking a display’s refresh rate to the framerate of the graphics card. Requires Monitor, AMD Radeon™ graphics and/or AMD A-Series APU compliant with DisplayPort™ Adaptive-Sync 1.2 (or newer). AMD Catalyst™ driver 15.2 Beta (or newer) required. Adaptive refresh rates vary by display; check with your monitor manufacturer for specific capabilities. Only select AMD Radeon GPUs and A-Series APUs supported; see www.amd.com/freesync for full details. GD-67

5: Discrete AMD Radeon™ and FirePro™ GPUs based on the Graphics Core Next architecture consist of multiple discrete execution engines known as a Compute Unit (“CU”). Each CU contains 64 shaders (“Stream Processors”) working together. GD-78
