14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A strong performing piece of hardware, Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 103 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 102 FPS, Medium: 80 FPS, High: 54 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We proceeded to look at Cyberpunk 2077 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. We added Cyberpunk 2077 to our research and predict it will be playable with a 31 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Genshin Impact which got 29 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB we get the impression that it is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

Radeon RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD RX 470 PowerColor Red Devil 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 an impressive 1270MHz, 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 1750MHz, a boost over many of it's competition in the RX 470 market.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.


Performance
The AMD RX 470 has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2016 and with PowerColors card being in the higher end of the RX 470 range it will be one of the best of the bunch. 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.
