AMD Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 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. This graphics hardware can run 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB graphics card is returning a weak performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Star Citizen which we predict will get reasonable frame rates of 47 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Resident Evil 8, which was getting 10 FPS under tests.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Battlefield 2042 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Star Citizen to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be playable with a 36 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB running at 1440p is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 21% better performance and can run 617 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB then a good choice would be R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB as this is better than 961 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 75% better performance as well.

Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 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 an impressive 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 1750MHz, a boost over many of it's competition in the RX 470 market.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W 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 with PowerColors card being in the higher end of the RX 470 range it will be one of the best of the bunch. 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.
