14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB get on latest AAA 2020 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 103 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Watch Dogs Legion with 42 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Baldurs Gate 3 which returns a playable 39 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator which we saw getting a playable 35 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Watch Dogs Legion on the Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB and predict it will get a playable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 84FPS, M: 66FPS, H: 44FPS, U: 32FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Baldurs Gate 3 which seemed playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 29 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Microsoft Flight Simulator where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were playable at 26 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 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 1250 - 1270MHz, 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.
