Average Bench: 44.6% (79th of 639)

Based on 59,229 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]

Below average average bench

The AMD RX 470 averaged 55.3% 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) 153fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 160fps

Very good consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 470 is just 11.8%. This is a relatively narrow range which indicates that the AMD RX 470 performs reasonably consistently under varying real world conditions.

Weaknesses

Avg. High dynamic range lighting (Teapot) 162fps
Avg. Parallax occlusion mapping (Stones) 223fps

Good Price for Performance, and for being 4 years behind the current year, it still performances excellently.

Normal people dont post comments or "reviews", why would they? Only company plebs trying to sell sh** do that. Took me a few stings to figure it out. Gotta give the AMD "fanboys" 10/10 for hard work, they are all over it - HOOYA

It's 2020 and this GPU still hagiing tight. Since the next generation RX570 shares almost the same chip whit a slight overclock, this GPU has been benefited from newer optimizations and remains refreshed.

I have MSI Gaming X card and it is awesome - stock frequencies shows shows score of almost 50%, overclocked by 5% gets it around 51.5% with TDP at 120W. Got RX 580 from Sapphire and it gave score of ~ 55% - too low for 185W card. It made like 1-3FPS in the games - I sold it again and stood with RX 470.

Got mine for 250$ before the gpu price surge. * outstanding performance per watt and dollar * decent at overclocking * good temps even under heavy load with the latest bios update from gigabyte. ---- With a stable 1365 MHz core and 2000 MHz memory overclock(proof: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/7552794), I was able to get Witcher 3 to run at 60 fps stable @ 1080p with mostly ultra settings (only foliage distance and hair works low).

This card is nearly as fast as my RX480. That AMD tried to make cards for regular gamers was great; and this card along with the entire RX line was awesome.

Best budget Gpu right now. overclocks pretty good (max oc 1500/2275) (daily 1350/2100). Also rx 570 is just an oc'ed 470 so yeah.
