I think I can say that Sapphire has the fastest 4GB RX 470 on the market, so if you are looking for that out of the box performance with power usage not being a concern this is the card for you!
It does exactly what AMD said it would. It also smears Nvidia’s current, low-end cards. Nvidia’s decision to price the GeForce GTX 1060 at $250 puts it way out of reach for buyers who might be considering a $180 to $200 video card. AMD’s new Radeons are the only sensible choice for gamers on a budget.
Sapphire Nitro RX 460 OC is just the winner of this test. It offers better cooling, excellent PCB, 4GB of VRAM and significantly better performance in games that are able to use more of VRAM. As a bonus you get for 6-pin connector and overclocking capabilities.
Radeon RX 460 is something that AMD has had for years - really good genuine new low end with decent performance, excellently low power consumption technology and latest technologies.
Expecting that the price of Radeon RX 460 is about 130 Euros, Radeon RX 460 acts as a great purchase for those who have a graphics card of the same class several years ago. Progress is evident and greater than in several previous generations in this regard would move on to the Radeon RX 460 was the logical choice.
I appreciate Sapphire for memory clock to 7GHz in 4 GB version version and 8GHz in 8GB. Although the Sapphire RX 470 OC is an excellent and cost-effective, the "reference" cooler compared to Nitro + version simply is not good and certainly I personally recommend you pay extra for Nitro + version (either RX 470 and RX 480).
AMD has made it clear that it wants the low end of the graphics card market, and now it’s time to see how committed it is to that strategy. In
AMD's RX 470 has been on our time table since May, when the pre-Computex press event informed us of a “mid-July” release. Well, it's mid-J
"As you can see from our testing, Radeon RX 470 is a very capable card that can run modern demanding games with 60 fps in full details. It is faster than R9 380X and much faster than R9 380, which it replaces. All the new technologies it shares with RX 480 means it is future-proof investment. Anyone with R9 270 will be blown away with the performance jump."
AMD has made brilliant decision to design Radeon RX 470 to have minimal difference compared to RX 480. Considering the fact that it’ll be more affordable in any case, Radeon RX 470 is bullseye score, especially custom design that we’ve got for testing. Not only does Sapphire’s cooler can contain this GPU, but also 8 GB of GDDR5 will serve perfectly for higher resolutions like 1440p.
