AMD Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 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 quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 310 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB shows us that Far Cry 6 is getting a weak result of 13 FPS, and then we are seeing FIFA 22 returning a strong 83 FPS while another game on our list is the Days Gone which is getting 43 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB at 1440p with FIFA 22, which got a good set of FPS results. These were, Low: 166 FPS, Medium: 131 FPS, High: 88 FPS and Ultra: 63 FPS. We then checked out Days Gone which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 87FPS, M: 68FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS. And another popular game was Far Cry 6 that returned L: 26FPS, M: 21FPS, H: 14FPS, U: 10FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB running at 1440p is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti which is 83% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 972 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 74% better performance and can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB graphics card is a 2016 released performance graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and is the best choice of the 4GB RX 470 cards. 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 1280MHz, when boost mode is triggered, the highest of any RX 470.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at a boosted 1750MHz, the highest the RX 470s 4GB cards go up to.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 470 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2016 and so the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Limited Edition 4GB will really show the best the RX 470 can do. 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.
