14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 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.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 425 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order with 18 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to return a weak 17 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 20 which we saw getting a strong 129 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 36 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. We added Cyberpunk 2077 to our research and predict it will be weak with a 13 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested FIFA 20 which got 98 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB is a solid choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.

GPU
The central unit runs at 926MHz and goes up to 1256MHz, 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 Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB 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.
