How well can the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB run games
26 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB can still meet a lot of the game system requirements of modern games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 342 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p of 11 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which we saw got playable frame rates of 42 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Need For Speed Heat, which was getting 42 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 22 FPS, Medium: 17 FPS, High: 12 FPS and Ultra: 8 FPS. We added Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to our tests and saw it was playable with a 32 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Need For Speed Heat which got 32 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 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 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which meets 879 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 56% better performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 22% more powerful and can run 746 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 470 HIS IceQ X2 OC 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 1226MHz, 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 and the HIS IceQ X2 OC edition is no different. 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 HIS IceQ RX 470 X2 OC 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.
