How well can the Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 155.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Marvel's Avengers and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 34 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. We proceeded to look at Grand Theft Auto VI to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 7 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Marvel's Avengers to predict how the Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 33 FPS, Medium: 26 FPS, High: 18 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS.

And finally looked at Horizon: Zero Dawn that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 31. 1440p gaming on the Radeon RX 470 XFX Single Fan Triple X 4GB is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.
