Tonight AMD will broadcast live event during PC Gaming Show, specifically at 8 p.m. +1 GTM where it is expected that they will announce a new graphics card, the AMD Radeon RX 470 which seek to gain a foothold as a powerful and economical entry level graphics card for gaming.

AMD could announce Radeon RX 470 Tonight at PC Gaming Show

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. Unfortunately the information is not confirmed and we will have to wait until tonight to see if there is really the announcement of a new graphics card from the company.
