The folks over at PCOnline published the first review of AMD Radeon RX 470D, slightly trimmed version of the Radeon RX 470 that comes to compete directly with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. This graphics card will not be available for sale outside of China and the reason is simple because NVIDIA GeForce X50 / x60 variants are always more popular in Cyber Cafes of china, that’s why AMD is looking forward to take some market share.

AMD Radeon RX 470D is undoubtedly faster than GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

In this case, the tested Sapphire Radeon RX 470D based on a Polaris 10 XL silicon consist of 1792 Stream Processors (vs 2048) at a frequency of 1266 MHz attached to 4GB GDDR5 @ 7.00 GHz memory (vs 6.60 GHz) with memory interface of 256 bits which gives a TDP of 150W (vs 120W), so it requires PCI-Express 8 – pin connector for power. This new variant is also expensive if we compare it with RX 470, 1299 Yuans for RX 470D.

Regarding performance, the Radeon RX 470D is far more powerful than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, while it is slightly less powerful than the RX 470, where the most glaring performance difference you can see below is 8fps in Overwatch followed by 5fps in Battlefield 1. Knowing that the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in China worth 1199 Yuans, the RX 470D is looking the best option because for 100 Yuans more it offers an average of 36% more performance.
