Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB graphics card is the king of the RX 470 hill, a 2016 released performance graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, it trumps all other competitors in the 470 catergory. 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 1121MHz and goes up to 1260MHz, when boost mode is triggered.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at a staggering 2000MHz.


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 this is probably the best example of one. 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 cards are 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.
