Radeon R9 M470 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
Radeon R9 M470 4GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Generation of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (GCN).
Radeon R9 M470 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Saturn PRO which is a Second Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Bonaire XT GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R7 260X.
Saturn XT has 14 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.
The Central Unit is Clocked at 900MHz and goes up to 1000MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1375MHz.
Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.
Radeon R9 M470 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M385 4GB.
Radeon R9 M470 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
