The AMD Radeon RX 470 would be based on Polaris 10 silicon manufactured on 14nm FinFET process node attached to 4 GB of GDDR5 memory @ 7000 MHz with memory interface of 128 bits. Due to the use of Graphics Core Next 4.0 (GCN 4.0) architecture and new technologies, it is expected that its performance would be between the Radeon R9 380 and Radeon R9 380X.
