AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB Review

Well ...
Until I see at least 5 games on Vulcan and 10 on DX12 of different types, I'll not jump into conclusion about AMD vs Nvidia performance.
So far the clear winners for AMD are the games sponsored by AMD - so couldn't care less about those results.
Doom is interesting, but any card getting very decent FPS in it.

Cool down.... I've just re-published all galleries and the charts are visible now. The US guys are sleeping but I saw the issue (a follow of your new front-end) and fixed it.

Please reload the pages again :)

The MSRP was $149 and looking at the current market the price should be around $180, $200 is way to high for this card.

Awwwwwwwwww. We were looking forward to starting a riot, FormatC! ;-)

I've cleared my browser's cache and reloaded the page, but still can't see the missing graphs. I'll try again in 15 minutes or so.

Thank you. :)

It would be convenient for the 1070 to be included in these comparisons. I feel that the card under review should never be at the top or bottom of the performance charts when there are faster and slower options readily available for reference and comparison. Plus, it does make you look biased.
 
I missed the 290 and 290X in the review, but I guess we want to compare the RX470 against the RX480 primarily, right?

And yeah, this card bordering $200 is just stupid. There is no way you will skip the RX480 4GB and pick this one at the same price point. Well, if you can find either, that is :S

I'm hoping that when the prices stabilize, this card will be in the $130-150 bracket as it should be.

Cheers!

$180 for this card? What are they smoking that's causing them to dream like that?
Just like people around here have already said: this card should cost no more than $130-$150 - with the $150 being the heavily improved version, for duck's sake.
Personally, for $200 I'd just save $100 more and get the GTX1060, given the performance delta.

Pricing just doesn't make any sense... here in Denmark the prices are (Sapphire Nitro+ cards, which are the cheapest atm):

470 4gb - $277
470 8gb - $322
480 4gb - $299
480 8gb - $367

Kinda makes the 470 pointless..
 
For a $200 custom 470 I would expect an 8pin power PCI-E card. I do wonder tho why tomshardware isn't doing OC tests. This card should hit 1.4Ghz unless AMD has lowered the VDDC max 1.15v the 480 gets. Also couldn't find if the 470 sports the same samsung GDDR5 has the 480 which would leave open overclocking memory.

180 bucks, for a GPU that handles Metro last light (a 2013 or 2014 title based on the redux or not version), can handle a mere 27 minimum frame rate on a Q2.2016 GPU with a new technology and a die shrink....

How about we look historically, what performance we would get from last light, for 180 bucks, in 2015 or 2014 or 2013?

It really feels like the improvement of the PC sector is slowing down a lot, especially if you look at the Doom vulkan performance on texture fill rate of the new GTXs (similar ro RAGE problems).

Then we got those foundervs vs non founders BS, the problem with faster gpu clocks sent to reviews from MSI and Asus (I think those where the two)...

Well, seems like I will be staying with my old I7-2670QM/570M Laptop for a little longer.
