AMD RX 470 is basically a direct replacement for the 480 with very similar performance to that card. This GPU is good for full HD and 1080p gaming with anti-aliasing on and getting full 60 fps. It is really ideal for a budget oriented system with Intel i3 or some AMD APU. The card makes use of the Polaris architecture and 14 nm fabrication process. It’s a good looking card with copper piping for extra heat dissipation. The XFX version has a six pin power connection while the MSI one has an 8 pin connection. At the moment, there’s a rumor from a pretty solid source that claims AMD might bring the price of their AMD RX 470 down even more.

AMD RX 470 price drop happening soon

“AMD is preparing for a big fight against NVIDIA’s purported GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Which is expected to be unveiled and released soon. They will be dropping the price of their mid-range champion graphics card, the Radeon RX 470.

AMD launched the Radeon RX 470 at around $179, but will be dropping the price of the RX 470 by $10, with a fresh new price of $169, according to my industry sources. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti won’t match the speed of the Polaris-based Radeon RX 470, which will be 30% faster – and fully VR-ready (with more performance on the Oculus Rift, thanks to the latest updates unveiled from Oculus during their developer conference, Oculus Connect 3 last week).

NVIDIA is expected to price the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at around $149, but it won’t match the performance of AMD’s Radeon RX 470 – and that’s going to be a huge win for AMD in the mid-range market where 1080p monitors are dominant. 1080p 60FPS gaming at $159 with VR-ready goodness, and cheaper FreeSync monitors for AMD Radeon owners is a great thing for the 80% of the market AMD is targeting with Polaris.” (via TweakTown)
