GeForce GTX 470 PhysX 

Released June, 2010
  • 608 MHz
  • 1.2 GB GDDR5

The memory system is actually running faster on the RX 460 than the RX 470, though with half the memory bus width at 128-bits.

The memory modules feature an aggressively styled anodized aluminum heat spreader which helps dissipate heat more effectively while the memory stick uses a full black PCB which looks great from an aesthetic point of view.

In The News From around the web

Investigation determined the culprit to be the beta BIOS on their ASRock Z170 Extreme7+, specifically the BIOS which allowed you to overclock locked Intel CPUs.
We retested our RX 470 to account for this issue, and we also updated our review with DirectX 12 benchmarks for Rise of the Tomb Raider and Hitman, plus full OpenGL and Vulkan benchmarks for Doom.

Sapphire's Custom Cooled Nitro+ RX 470 Available Now

by Tim Verry |
Sapphire is using Black Diamond 4 chokes and a 4+1 power phase design that is driven by a single 8-pin PCI-E power connector (and up to 75W from the motherboard slot).
Out of the box this cooler should keep the RX 470 GPU running cooler and quieter than the RX 480, but it should also enable users to get higher clocks out of the smaller GPU (less cores means less heat and more overclocking headroom assuming you get a good chip from the silicon lottery).
Performance (overclocking, power)95%Quality (build, design, cooling)95%General Features (display outputs, etc)100%Bundle, Packaging & Software90%Value for Money80% Overall TweakTown Rating92% The Bottom Line: SAPPHIRE's new Nitro Radeon RX 470 4GB represents one of the best value for money graphics cards you can buy, offering 1080p 60FPS performance.
It looks better, performs faster, and has a far superior cooler.

Custom Cooled XFX Radeon RX 470 Graphics Card Revealed

by Tim Verry |
In the case of the Radeon RX 470, AMD is expecting that most (if not all) of its board partners will be using their own custom coolers.
Polaris-based graphics cards are coming next week, and the leaks are starting to appear online.
