The Radeon RX 470 is an AMD GPU that was released in August 2016.
This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 18% in our PC benchmark.
The Radeon RX 470 has 8 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 206 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 470 GPU core runs at a frequency of 926 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1206 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 470 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 120W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
