Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res.

Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is FIFA 22 which we saw got strong frame rates of 81 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 11 FPS under tests.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 93 FPS, Medium: 73 FPS, High: 49 FPS and Ultra: 35 FPS.

Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 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 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. 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 HIS IceQ X2 Turbo 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.
