AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB Performance Review

The Radeon RX 470 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Radeon RX 470 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon RX 470 4GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 299 games in the list.

A Radeon RX 470 4GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a reasonable frame rate when running Star Citizen on Ultra - 45 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Days Gone which is 40 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Battlefield 2042 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Star Citizen to predict how the Radeon RX 470 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 90 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Next we looked at Days Gone which was playable with a 31 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Battlefield 2042 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 470 4GB is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.
