In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X has a 174 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 470, but the RX 470 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the RX 470 exhibits a 56.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R7 360X has a 174 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 470, but the RX 470 has 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the RX 470 exhibits a 12 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 470 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 360X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX 470 has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 360X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 470 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 470 has 107.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 360X, which means that the memory performance of the RX 470 is massively better than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon RX 470 4GB has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 360X has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 470 is 2470 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876. The RX 470 having 1594 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 470 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 360X.

The RX 470 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R7 360X. This means that the RX 470 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon RX 470 4GB requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 470 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360X. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The AMD RX 470 4GB graphics card is a 2016 released performance graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. This card competes against Nvidia's outgoing, but very popular, GTX 970 and the incoming GTX 1050 Ti, when that releases.

Architecture
It is powered by the Ellesmere PRO GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 926MHz and goes up to 1206MHz, when boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 1650MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 470 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2016. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2016 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 470 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.
Overview
Radeon R7 360X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.2 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture improves memory bandwidth performance which allows AMD to produce Graphics Cards with smaller data transfer rates without causing too much impact on the overall performance. This is done by using lossless delta color compression.
GCN 1.2 also adds improved Tesselation and video encoding/decoding performance as well as DirectX 12.0 Support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Tobago XT which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 1100MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Product Not Released. Performance Not Known Yet.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 360X 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
