Gaming PC build Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB, Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB performance review

A PC with a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz can run 79 of the top 1000 PC games released when it also has the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB graphics card and 8GB system memory in it. This combination of hardware leaves the Core i5-3470 3.2GHz as the weak point, when looking at what games it can play. You could upgrade that component enabling the system to run 475 games of our most demanding games list.

Lets compare todays most popular game, Red Dead Redemption 2 with this PC. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 46 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Red Dead Redemption 2 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 93 FPS or the Medium returning 73 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 49 FPS and then Ultra gets 35 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for Halo: Reach, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 147 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 112 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 67 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - In summary, while some might be tempted to play Cyberpunk 2077 in 1440p resolution with the Radeon RX 470 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB, we feel it is best placed at running at 1080p, where you could get the following frame rates - Low setting: 59 FPS, Medium setting: 47 FPS, High setting: 32 FPS, Ultra setting: 23 FPS.
