Average Bench: 56.4% (38th of 550)

Based on 18,316 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 67DF Model: Radeon (TM) RX 470 Graphics

The RX 470 is the second Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year. The 470 follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful (though still mostly unavailable) RX 480. Based on specs the RX 470 has approximately 10% less processing horsepower than the RX 480. Looking at provisional average benchmarks (we only three samples of the RX 470 at this time) of the RX 480 and RX 470 shows that the performance gap is just a few percent. This performance gap will likely widen as we get a more representative number of samples of the RX 470 but the fact that custom design 470s are already available will likely keep the gap between the 480 less than 10%, at least until custom 480s make it to market. The list prices of both the 4GB RX 480 and RX 470 cards are within 20 USD of each other so AMD have basically re-released the 480 at a slightly reduced price with slightly reduced specs, strange but true! [Aug '16 GPUPro]

Average average bench

The AMD RX 470 averaged 43.5% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 158fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 151fps

Very good consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 470 is just 16.2%. This is a relatively narrow range which indicates that the AMD RX 470 performs reasonably consistently under varying real world conditions.
