AMD Radeon RX 470 Image AMD Ellesmere Image
The Radeon RX 470 is a mid-range graphics card by AMD, launched in August 2016. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Ellesmere graphics processor, in its Ellesmere PRO 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 470 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 2048 shading units, 128 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.
We recommend the AMD Radeon RX 470 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1920x1080.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon RX 470 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 470 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 241 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 179 US Dollars.
