How well can the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB run games
28 Aug 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 481 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a playable frame rate from Ghost Recon Breakpoint with 41 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Microsoft Flight Simulator which returns a weak 18 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Cyberpunk 2077 which we saw getting a weak 17 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Ghost Recon Breakpoint and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 83 FPS, Medium: 65 FPS, High: 44 FPS and Ultra: 31 FPS. We then checked the performance on Microsoft Flight Simulator to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 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 Black Edition 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 470 XFX RS Black Edition 4GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB as this is better than 922 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 56% better performance as well. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 25% better and can run 870 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
