How well can the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB run games
26 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 339.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Halo: Reach getting 133 FPS with the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot getting 62 FPS and Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 41 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Halo: Reach to see how the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB dealt with it. It scored up a strong series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 267 FPS, Medium: 210 FPS, High: 141 FPS and Ultra: 101 FPS. Next we looked at Dragon Ball Z Kakarot which was reasonable with a 47 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Red Dead Redemption 2 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 31. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB we get the impression that it is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 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 Triple X 4GB? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 879 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 59% increased graphics performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Triple X 4GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 746 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 25% better performance as well.
