The Radeon RX 470D is a graphics card by AMD, launched in October 2016. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Ellesmere graphics processor, in its Polaris 10 PROD variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Ellesmere graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 232 mm² and 5,700 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon RX 480, which uses the same GPU but has all 2304 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon RX 470D to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1792 shading units, 112 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 4,096 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 926 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1206 MHz, memory is running at 1650 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon RX 470D draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 120 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. Radeon RX 470D is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 241 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.
