How well can the Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 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.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 424 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Planet Zoo with 37 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Diablo 4 which is predicted to return a weak 17 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will get a weak 15 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Planet Zoo which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 73 FPS, Medium: 58 FPS, High: 39 FPS and Ultra: 28 FPS. Next we have Diablo 4 running on Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB which is predicted to get L: 34FPS, M: 27FPS, H: 18FPS, U: 13FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 30FPS, M: 24FPS, H: 16FPS, U: 11FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Radeon RX 470 MSI Gaming X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD RX 470 MSI Gaming X 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 1242MHz, 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 110W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.


Performance
The AMD RX 470 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2016 and this card is not much different. 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 MSI Gaming X 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.
