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.
