Good news for those who are thinking about purchasing a mid-range graphics card from AMD camp, because AMD reduced the price of the AMD Radeon RX 470, although a very slight reduction of 10 euros, but more than enough to protect itself against the imminent launch of the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
AMD Significantly Cuts Down Radeon RX 470 Pricing
The AMD Radeon RX 470 mounts the Polaris 10 Pro silicon manufactured on 14nm FinFET consists of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs at Base / Turbo frequencies that vary according to the model chosen by 4/8 GB GDDR5 memory @ 6600 MHz coupled with a memory interface of 256 bits resulting in a bandwidth of 211 GB / s and all with a TDP of 120W.
In terms of performance, it is capable of reaching 4.9 TFLOPs (more powerful than the Radeon R9 380X while consuming 70W less), this translates to being 140% faster in DOOM if we compare it with Radeon R9 270 reaching 107 FPS with Vulkan APIat highest quality on 1080p resolution.
The Radeon RX 470 comes to perform as a GeForce GTX 970, while the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti offer practically the same performance found in the GeForce GTX 960, so paying 20 euros more for the Radeon RX 470 would be the most logical choice for gamers. This price reduction would have to materialize in the coming days.
