Product information: Radeon RX 470 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card with backplateThe Radeon RX 470 graphics card runs on Polaris 10 architecture and is aimed at creating a premium HD gaming experience for the user. The RX 470 boasts high quality visuals and high frame rates, making sure you get the most out of next-gen gaming. You can enjoy incredibly smooth and low-latency gaming at virtually any framerate thanks to AMD FreeSync™ technology. Also revel in 4K streaming and recording whilst gaming, with virtually no performance impact!
Polaris is a new graphic architecture embedded into the Radeon RX 470, it incorporates exciting features and improvements for nearly every area of a graphics chip. It enhances the Radeon RX 470 performance, creates smooth VR, seamless support for next-gen monitors and CPU-free game streaming or recording.
HDR (High-Dynamic Range) technology featured in the Radeon RX 470 GPU, is a technique used when rendering computer graphic scenes. It is done via lighting calculations that are done in high dynamic range to allow preservation of details that may have otherwise been lost due to limiting contrast ratio - making games more visually accurate and appealing.
Every PC gamer knows how incredibly smooth gaming can be at a steady 60+ FPS. Now you can have that low-latency experience at virtually any framerate with AMD FreeSync monitors. The RX 470 features FreeSync tech that will free your games and their cinematics of screen tearing and help minimize stuttering.
AMD’s Polaris architecture-based 14nm FinFET GPUs deliver a remarkable generational jump in power efficiency, promising more than double the performance per watt over previous generations. Summed up FinFET helps drive to lower power consumption, enables performance per/watt innovation and enables various new kinds of products. Experience AMD’s Radeon RX 470 and enjoy gaming features that dynamically optimize sound volumes based on actual temperature and workloads.
Radeon Software drivers enable the ultimate in performance, features and stability and are designed to continuously improve your experience with up-to-the-minute enhancements, updates and optimizations. Push your hardware to the limits or underclock to near silent gaming with Radeon WattMan (formerly AMD Overdrive™) for a whole new level of customization and per state control over clocks, voltages, and temperature.
This means the RX 470 is a superb card for those who are still gaming on cards a few generations old as this card offers a vast leap in performance whilst not requiring a power supply upgrade. Also jam packed with features such as full DX12 readyness, VR Ready and the latest GCN architecture this amazingly powerful, quiet and low power card will only get more and more powerful as AMD release further driver updates, meaning this card is a great upgrade that will last years to come. OcUK now stocks several monitors that support Freesync from as little as around £100, which when combined with the RX-470 give the most fluid gaming experience with no stuttering or tearing, just silky smooth graphics.
Absolutely ideal for 720P and 1080P gaming on all the latest titles with maximum visual settings such as Doom, Unreal Tournamount, Hellblade, Fifa 17, Mafia III, Watch Dogs 2, TitanFall 2, Battlefield 1, Dishonored 2, Halo Wars 2, Over Watch and Ghost Recon. The RX-470 can even manage gaming reasonably well at 1440P (2560x1440) which demonstrates truly how powerful this card is, yet it features such a low price point and is a great upgrade for pretty much any PC with a 350W or greater ATX power supply. Should Half Life 3 ever be released, the RX-470 will be the perfect gaming card!!!
