In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB.

The RX 560 has a 249 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 470, but the RX 470 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. As a result, the RX 470 exhibits a 43.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 560. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 560 has a 249 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 470, but the RX 470 has 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. As a result, the RX 470 exhibits a 10.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 560. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 560 was released less than a year after the RX 470, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 470 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 470 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 470 has 99.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the RX 470 is massively better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 470 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1318 and the actual shader performance of the RX 470 is 2470. The RX 470 having 1152 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 470 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB requires 80 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 470 4GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 470. The RX 470 requires 40 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 470 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\r\nGPU
\r\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It has a small overclock to the boost clock speed of the RX 560, running at 1287MHz comparedto 1275MHz at stock clock speeds.

\r\nMemory
\r\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\r\nPower Consumption
\r\nWith a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\r\nPerformance
\r\This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

\r\nSystem Suggestions
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
The AMD RX 470 4GB graphics card is a 2016 released performance graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. 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 1206MHz, when boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 1650MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 470 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2016. 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.
